    This mascara features a curved elastomer brush to spread lashes and ensures full, fanned-out look, enhanced volume and defined lash lines in a single sweep. Its wand captures lashes from root to tip to give layers of denser, more voluminous lashes.

    The Pros:

    • It has ten layers of bristles which curves the inner lashes, volumizes and lengthens them.
    • The formula has a sensational serum which nourishes and unfurls 100% layers for a dramatic look.
    • It is available in two variants- washable and waterproof.
    • It captures lashes from root to tip for a full-fan effect.
    • You can get sensational lashes in just one sweep.  
    • It doesn’t clump, stiffens or weigh down the lashes.

    The Cons:

    • It easily wears off with water.
    • You can’t apply more than 2 coats.

    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.
