#RealGirlBeauty: Which Maybelline Mascara Is Perfect For YOU?

Mascara is that magic wand that has the ability to make our eyes pop. Even when you want to skip the eyeliner, a swipe or two of your trusty mascara can singlehandedly open up your eyes with a dash of drama. Since it’s such an integral part of our makeup routine, we decided to compare the different Maybelline mascaras available in India.

You don’t need to splurge on a luxe mascara, Maybelline has a variety of them that are way more pocket friendly. If you’re confused between their Colossal Mascara, The Hyper Curl Volum’ Express or the Falsies Volum’ Express, read on as we’ve compared them for you. Now you’ll know when to use what, which is the best fit for you and which one is our fave. 

1. Maybelline The Colossal Volum’ Express

  •      It comes in 2 options – waterproof and washable, both are the same price.

The Cons:


  •  It doesn’t really have as much of a curling effect as it claims.


  •  It clumps pretty easily.

  • You run the risk of your lashes looking way too spidery if you apply too many     coats.

  • It creates gaps in between lashes, which doesn’t make them look         voluminous.

3. Maybelline Falsies Volum’ Express

This mascara also comes with a curved, spoon-shaped applicator to ensure it coats every lash. It’s supposed to give you thicker lashes without having to go through the trouble of dealing with false lashes.


The Pros:

  • It’s very easy to sweep on.

  • It definitely makes your lashes thicker, longer and way more dramatic.

  • It fills in the gaps between lashes.

  • You can see its effects in just one or two coats.

  • It’s long-lasting.

  • It’s great for parties and evening events or just when you want your eyes to seriously pop.

  • It dries quickly.

  • It comes in 2 options – waterproof and washable, both are the same price.

The Cons:

  • It does clump a bit.

  • The formula is thicker than the other two and the brush tends to get excess on it.

  • You run the risk of your lashes looking way too spidery if you apply too many coats.

  • It is comparatively costlier than the other two.

  • The waterproof one doesn’t come off very easily.


Price: Rs. 500, Buy it here

Our Verdict: It’s a tough choice between the Colossal mascara and the Falsies one. I love how thick my lashes look after a coat of the Falsies mascara, but I think the Colossal mascara is amazing for daily wear. The brush glides over your lashes really easily and provides just the right amount of volume for any occasion, even work. It’s great value for money.
