This is my go to, mascara. It is more of a purplish blue rather than a neon blue like hard candys on peacock. I looove then both but I thinkthis one is my favorite by a, tennie bit. I looove the wand and the formula didn't clump on me even after three coats. I sometimes use a white primer if I really want it to stand out but most times I don't and it gives subtle color in regular light and is really notable in sunlight. I have gotten alot of compliments when wearing this and alot of ” is that blue mascara?!”
I love this product because it reminds me of the benefit blue mascara! I hate hate hate the formula of bad gal lash....it clumped my lashes horribly no matter what i did, so this was a breath of fresh air. The great lash formula is buildable, it's a very natural looking product and does not offer a lot in terms of volume but with around 3 coats i'm more than satisfied in the length department! for added volume I go through with a makeshift lash comb that I created out of a clean revlon wand (it works wonders!). The blue is less harsh than black and makes my eyes look very white and awake, I really like the effect because its subtle in regular light and it shows more vibrant in sunlight. I was not looking for a severe color, I am a Catholic school teacher and I would look very out of place with bright blue lashes...i'm also not a teenager...overall this is a great basic mascara that is a twist from an everyday mascara.
I was looking to try out blue mascara for my eyes, since the SA at MAC recommended that for me. I didn't want to get it from MAC due to budget issues. I found this at my local CVS and it was 50% off! So I immediately picked this up. I have only used this on my lower lashes to make my eyes look bigger. I didn't want a dramatic look for day time, so I used black mascara on the top and blue mascara on the bottom lashes, along with a black eyeliner and brown neutral smoky eye look. It does last for a long time and doesn't smudge. I don't really think this is waterproof? The blue color did show up on my eyelashes, unlike Covergirl's 24 hr lash blast blue black mascara. This is blue enough so I don't use an eyelash primer or anything. I'll be repurchasing this as long as Maybelline manufactures it! Its a little difficult to come by this product at any drugstore, so if you see it, immediately get it :)
Since Benefit discontinued their Bad Gal Lash in blue, I purchased the "The Mascara" by ZUZU in Navy. Unfortunately, the formula was very dry and the blue a bit dark for my black eyelashes. I loved the brush though. Still in search of the perfect blue mascara, I recently bought Maybelline Great Lash mascara in Royal Blue. As others have noted, the brush is horrible! It's very stiff and hurts if you hit your lash line with it. I read some reviews on Makeup Alley about using another mascara brush, so now I use the brush from my ZUZU navy blue mascara and dip it into my Maybelline Great Lash Royal Blue (cap sizes don't match or I would have just switched wands). Finally I'm happy with my blue mascara! Others have mentioned the Great Lash flakes and smudges, but I haven't had that experience. My eyelids are oily, but I haven't noticed any migration of product onto eyelids or under my eyes.
It's just like Great Lash to me in formula, so I hate it. I replaced its brush with my Great Lash BIG's brush (after washing off the black mascara remaining on it) and it's a lot nicer and much less clumpy now. I only use this like a dozen times a year (and only over a primer, otherwise it's pointless) so I don't need to repurchase it but I would.
I've always wanted to try Great Lash but I accidentally picked up blue instead of black. The color is adorable! But the formula is really wet and doesn't show up that well. But once in a while I like putting it on for a new look. I don't like wand at all. Next time, I'll try another colored mascara before I come back to this
I think i have to start off by saying ive never been the type of girl who ventures out and tries a lot. ive only ever used a black mascara and when i picked this up yesterday i thought i had gotten it in black, To be honest with you i didnt even know they made a mascara in blue! i grabbed it without looking bc i didnt know there was even a blue mascara and this morning i wanted to try it out and when i opened it it was blue! i was very skeptical because well it was blue. i tried it on anyway and immediately i thought the color was outstanding. i cant stop looking at my lashes lol. its VERY noticeable in the light but further away its not. i like it and will def continue to use it.
A very good product for the price - I had used the Black and Brown/Black "classic" Matbelline (el cheapo) mascaras with great success, so I gave the Royal Blue a try. Very subtle, actually.
I have NEVER liked Great Lash all that much, but I bought it on a whim at CVS just because of a BOGO 50% off offer they were running on Maybelline at the time. I needed mascara, I was picking up a prescription, and it was on sale.
I've changed my mind about this mascara altogether...I LOVE IT! The color is perfect on dark lashes; it adds just enough oomph to brighten eyes without looking garish. There are tricks to it though. The formula does stay wet a bit longer than most mascaras. One of my tricks is to load up the brush, hold a business card against my top lid and practically slap it on. It practically looks like I have false lashes on. It looks especially spectacular with MAC Blooz Eye Kohl.
If you see it, grab it. I've been converted!
I'm so-so on this. I have blonde-black eyelashes, and this blue kind of shows up. If you stand in just right light, you can see it SUPER easily. It clumps on my eyelashes, and I HATE that. Doesn't really do anything for lengthening either.
