Packaging: The Mascara comes in an attractive yellow colored plastic tube packaging with the product name written on with glossy turquoise color. This mascara has two variants, 1: washable and 2: waterproof. Both of these come in a similar packaging except the lettering color difference written on top. The waterproof one has turquoise color lettering where as the washable one has purple. It has a dense-thick wand which is a very important characteristic for volumizing mascaras. The bristles are fine & soft and very neatly surround the wand of the mascara. I really like this catchy packaging of the colossal mascara as it makes it very easy to find it in my huge makeup stash. The packaging is spill proof and travel friendly.
Texture and Formula: The formula of this mascara runs on a slight drier side which actually helps it in not getting clumped inside. It coats the lashes well in a single pass and gives a boost of volume in multiple passes. The formula sets pretty quickly so you do not need to wait around for it to get dry. But because the formula has a dry and thick consistency, it sometime leaves flaky bits to the lashes which is a little letdown. But other than that I love how It gives a boost of volume and length to the eye lashes and is completely waterproof.
Review: This is a great budget mascara which volumizes the lashes very well and give them a good length. Its completely waterproof and does not smudge even if you splash water on your eyes or shed a tear or two 😀 .The slight dry formula sets very fast and gives a boost of volume and length to the lashline. The fine bristles work beautifully in covering each and every lash and does not make them stiff or heavy. The thick and dry consistency does not clump and coats the lashes very well.
But because the wand is quite thick, it becomes difficult to coat the lower and inner corner lashes well with the mascara. I have fairly long lashes but still have a hard time while applying the mascara on the inner corners. Because of the dry consistency one has to be careful while reapplication as it dries pretty fast. Also as it is a waterproof mascara, cleaning up can be a real pain so use of a good eye makeup remover is a must.
But even with these few drawbacks, i think
this is a great budget friendly mascara which gives a boost of volume and long length to the eye lashes. If you like long, thick and dramatic eye-lashes, Do give this one a try 🙂 and for the coming monsoon, its a must have waterproof mascara 🙂 I highly recommend!
