Maybelline Colossal Curl Bounce Mascara; Beauty Director review

If there’s one product that we regularly shun high end and luxury options for drugstore buys, it’s mascara, and Maybelline really is hard to beat.

So naturally, a new launch from the brand is one we’re always willing to deviate from our trusted daily go-tos to give a whirl. The latest offering, Colossal Curl Bounce Mascara, has been causing quite the stir online seeing consumers, bloggers and journalists all weighing in.

With an RRP of just £10.99, it promises to combine the effects of both a mascara and an eyelash curler in one, resulting in all day clump-free hold. But does it deliver?

Well, it’s won over Good Housekeeping’s Beauty Director Eve Cameron, a highly sought after stamp of approval.

Eve told us; “With technology that mimics the effect of lash curlers and takes insights from hairspray formulation to ensure the hold lasts, Colossal Curl is very clever stuff and has earned a place in my makeup bag.”

Adhesion polymer, PVP, is the component the formula borrows from hairspray, used to aid binding, film forming and fixing the curl in place all day. The high tech memory curl formula also boasts a first-to-market lightweight, wax-free base, all delivered on the new Curl ‘n’ Bounce brush. A combination which the brand says guarantees no clumping, dropping, flaking or smudging.

And it seems Eve agrees; “What makes a great mascara? Lift, curl, volume…all of these and of course no smudging, clumping or flaking. I’ve found that Maybelline Colossal Curl Bounce Mascara, £10.99, ticks all the boxes (this coming hot on the heels of the wonderful bendy-brushed Sky High Mascara that they launched last year).”

If you haven’t tried the Sky High mascara yet, it went viral last year for its incredible results and Boots is currently offering 3 for 2 on selected Maybelline products online (as of 31 January 2022). Why not try both and get yourself another little treat for free too?

Another money saver, the Colossal Curl Bounce is reduced to just £8.75 on Look Fantastic.

Who can argue with a price like that?
