Nuevo and COLOSSAL

It seems like last week every product junkie known to man was at CVS checking out the New Colossal Maybelline mascara that had just hit the shelves so you may have seen a review of this product already, but here is my take.
I was walking through the store and just as I was about to exit the aisle my eye happened to notice this bright bold almost neon green tube with the hint of purple, so I backed up to take a better look. Next I saw the following NUEVO, colossal, 9x volume and clump free, so I just had to pick it up. I was so excited to purchase this new product that I never looked at the color that I purchased until I got home, thankfully it was black.
Whoa does this little baby work, priced at $6.99 this can be a great addition to any makeup bag. My lashes were indeed clump free and LONG. This happens to be one of those mascaras with the large wands but that has not been a problem for me so I don't mind the size. Unfortunately, this is not a waterproof mascara because a few drops of water on my lashes (for testing purposes only) and it began to run but hey who puts drops of water on their lashes anyway?
Check out B's review with video!!
Which drugstore brand mascara do you love?
**Update** I forgot to mention that while this product is not waterproof it is smudgeproof to some degree. I was rubbing my eye and then I remembered that I had on the mascara so I grabbed my mirror and to my surprise everything was perfect. Secondly, I forgot to mention that this mascara has collagen, possibly to plump up those lashes.

I love Lash Discovery! It really makes my lashes longer and it also defines them! I like thinner brushes rather then the thicker ones.

Considering I'm on month three of my mascara, it's time to re-up. Your review is right on time. On my own, I don't think I would have bought the mascara. Now I'm excited after reading your review.

Thanks for the great review. I'm intrigued by the collagen. Don't you hate when you rub your eyes and smudge your mascara yourself???? I do it all the time.

Antithesis, I love great lash in clear.

Just Wondering - Lash Discovery makes even baby lashes pop!

Pretty Circle - you're absolutely right!
