Maybelline Colossal Chaotic Mascara Review

I can count on one hand the number of times I’ve walked out of a store without having bought the new and improved or the latest and greatest mascara. Just like the last-minute candy bar I grab in the supermarket checkout line, new mascara is part of my routine. And because of that, I have a Maybelline Colossal Chaotic Lash Washable Mascara review for you.

You wouldn't think I'd even purchase Maybelline Colossal Chaotic Lash Washable Mascara, but I did. I love mascara and am on the hunt for my perfect combination of formula and brush.

I wasn’t even deterred when the Maybelline model pictured in the display of my latest find sported clumpy, smeared, jacked-up lashes. At least, that’s the way they appeared to me. Maybelline touts its Colossal Chaotic Lash Washable Mascara as having a breakthrough teasing brush designed to infuse your lashes with volume for a look that’s bold, sexy, and disorganized. As the name says – chaotic.

Tell me about the wand and application

The Maybelline Colossal Chaotic Lash Washable Mascara wand with its curved brush didn’t look particularly revolutionary to me. Honestly, my expectations were low as I applied a standard two coats to my lashes. However, I found those expectations lifting a bit when my lashes looked both longer and thicker.

Each lash was also separated and defined. No clumps. I have to say I was mighty impressed by this budget-friendly mascara from a drugstore mainstay. Could this Maybelline mascara rival DiorShow? And could it last though a long day into night?

Tell me how it held up through the day and night

Most mascara leaves you with great-looking eyelashes shortly after application. The real test is how they look hours later. Very few stand the test of time (like DiorShow, a favorite). So I tested this mascara out and am going to share the results. Hi, my name is Phyllis Bourne and beyond being a beauty blogger, beauty writer, and romance writer, I am one to honestly overshare.

I decided to give this mascara a real workout. I tried Maybelline's Colossal Chaotic Lash Washable Mascara on a day that began with early morning conference workshops and ended dancing with hundreds of fellow romance authors at the annual Harlequin party. We're talking sweat, tears, stress, and joy for well over a dozen hours of wear. While my high heels and Spanx didn’t make it until midnight, my new mascara did. No smears, no smudges.

Tell me how easily it washed off

On top of that, Maybelline's The Colossal Chaotic Lash Washable Mascara washed off so easily at the end of a very long night. It was completely gone while I was half asleep swiping around a makeup wipe. But tested another day, it all washed off effortlessly with my usual face wash.

Tell me is it a mascara worth purchasing?

If you’re looking for a go-to mascara or an alternative to the high-end one you’re paying $25 a pop for, I highly recommend Maybelline's Colossal Chaotic Lash Washable Mascara. It can be found at most grocery, drug, and discount stores as well as Amazon for less than $10.

      1. Right?!?!?! What a horrible ad, I don’t know why they chose that. I saw the ad and decided that not only was makeup trends utterly ridiculous now but I’d NEVER try that mascara. And again thanks to Phyllis I am considering a product I would never have otherwise!
