NEW Maybelline PUMPED UP! Colossal Volum’ Express Mascara Review

Hi everyone! A couple of days ago, I was in CVS and I saw a display for a new Maybelline mascara. I think Maybelline makes some of the best mascara, I love the Rocket Volum’ Express and also the Falsies mascara.

This new mascara caught my eye because it is in a hot pink tube, and I can’t resist anything hot pink! It also has the same shape as The Rocket, which is my all-time favorite mascara.


I picked this up from CVS for $7.99, and there were a couple of different colors, but I just went for “Classic Black”. I didn’t get the waterproof version of this mascara, because I find that waterproof mascaras are too hard to get off and I don’t have a problem with mascara smudging or anything throughout the day.

This mascara is infused with Collagen, and is supposed to add 16X the volume for your lashes. The wand is a huge, oval shaped brush with soft bristles. I really like mascaras with bigger wands, but I like to use a mascara with a smaller brush on my bottom lashes, like Clinique’s Bottom Lash Mascara or Loreal’s Telescopic.


The formula is pretty “wet”, but it doesn’t get clumpy on me at all. I curled my lashes before applying this, and I applied 2 coats. This mascara did not really hold the curl, or give the volume that it promised. It does lengthen, however. It gave me really long, natural looking lashes, which I really liked! It didn’t make my lashes look thick or add much volume at all.

Overall, I do like this mascara. If you are looking for something that looks natural, but adds length, this is the one for you! This is a good mascara to use for everyday wear because it does look very natural and pretty. It also doesn’t make my lashes feel stiff, which is always good.

Have you guys tried this mascara?

Thanks for reading, have a great day!

xoxo, Amy
