The Mega Plush mascara from Maybelline that I last reviewed didn't impress me very much. I was a bit disappointed and wanted to get a mascara that I would love. I was going back to the Great Lash Lots of Lashes but like last time I found this display and just had to try it! Hopefully this one doesn't disappoint me. I originally saw this in the UK when I was there over the summer but decided to wait till it got to Canada to try it out. The Colossal Cat Eyes (in the shade Glam Black) was around $6.97 CDN at my local Walmart. I forgot to keep the recipet so I'm not sure of the exact price. But it was below $9

The Colossal Cat Eyes by Volum'Express' claims:
Colossal lashes go fully feline in one stroke.
  • Lash collagen formula and claw brush fill out lashes up to 8x the volume with fabulous cat-like corners , instantly. It's wild!

At first glace I love the packaging the leopard print and the contrasting use of yellow and orange makes it very appealing. I've used brushes like this before I think it was from another Maybelline mascara that's discontinued I don't remember the name of it. This mascara smells exactly like the Colossal does. It doesn't have runny or wet formula. It was easy to apply I used the brush as an upside down "U" like the picture above.

After about two coats, my husband was amazed and told me that my eye lashes looked long. I agree with him that it did lengthen and make my eyelashes fluttery. Which I love! What I love about this mascara is I feel like you don't have to curl your lashes. I've only applied it without curling my lashes and it always gives me a perfect look. I've used this many times before work when I'm in a rush and it's worked amazing without curling my lashes. I did notice the corners of my eyes having volume but not much of a cat like.

Left Eye is with Cat Eyes Mascara, and Right is my natural lashes without mascara.
Overall I love this mascara. I've always loved the orignal Colossal, so I expected this one to be good as well. I'll defintely be repurchasing this mascara!
