Review: Maybelline Volum' Express The Colossal Cat Eyes Mascara

Maybelline have recently released their new mascara "Volum' Express The Colossal Cat Eyes" (bit of a mouthful) which promises 7x more volumised, flicked out at the corners eyelashes.



The packaging is bright yellow and you wouldn't lose it in your makeup bag. It also has leopard print on the lid which is a nice touch seeing as it's "cat eyes"

The "claw brush" as they call it is designed to help the mascara. It's a good length and width but doesn't manage to part the lashes very well so can result in some clumping



Here's my nake eye

and here's the mascara result

The result is very dark and it coats all the lashes as you can see, but it's a bit of a clumpy result for my liking as I prefer a more seperated look to my lashes. They do look quite curled and flicked at the corners however

and here's me with cat eyes herself wearing my cat eyes!

If you're feeling inspired by this, blogger Masquerade Makeup has created some tutorial videos



  1. It does look really pretty and is certainly good for the price, but I also prefer a more separated fanned out look. I tend to go for rubber comb type brushes, but this is definitely something I'd happily buy as a back up xx

  3. I can never find the right Mascara-i have tried so many different brands. Think i will give this one a go x

  4. Awesome blog you have here but I was wanting to know if you knew of any community forums that cover the same topics talked about here?

  5. Hiya! I know this is kinda off topic but I'd figured I'd ask.
    Would you be interested in exchanging links or maybe guest authoring a blog article or vice-versa?
    My site covers a lot of the same topics as yours and I feel we
    could greatly benefit from each other. If you happen to be interested feel free to send me
