As I have mentioned several times before, I have fairly sensitive eyes. Therefore, I shy away from waterproof mascara because it tends to irritate my eyes during removal. Unless it is a special occasion, I prefer a lighter non-waterproof mascara that provides some volume and length without being too clumpy. The Maybelline Colossal Volum’ Express Mascara is my favorite for daily wear because it delivers on all these fronts.
The formula provides reasonable volume and length but has less hold as compared to the waterproof variant from this range. It is not very curling but that can be rectified by using an eyelash curler before application. I love this mascara primarily for the volume that it provides without being too clumpy. A single coat will give a very natural look that is easily buildable to a dramatic flutter with 2-3 coats. I also like the thick wand with the bristles because these seem to apply the product quite evenly on the lashes.
The longevity of this mascara is great and it lasts on my lashes for more than 8 hours. Despite this, it is super easy to remove and easily comes off with just water. It is a great drugstore mascara that is priced at INR 400 but is usually available online at around INR 350. I would also recommend the waterproof version for a butterfly like flutter and a stronger curling action.

Great review! I have recently brought this and used it for the first time last night. And I was really surprised at the volume it gave my lashes! I did use a curler first but nevertheless was very happy 🙂
