I personally really like this mascara. It coats every lash and volumes and lengthens, giving a fuller look. I personally believe that your lashes should be curled to achieve the great lash look. When I first purchase this product I really disliked it as most people do, until I tried it again. I would recommend this mascara to those who have naturally curly lashes.
Okay, first off, I don't like the brush, it really clumps my lashes and doesn't do a good job of lengthening my lashes. However, I've found that when I wet my lashes with water before applying the mascara, it doesn't clump nearly as much, and my lashes look a whole lot better. So a tip for those who are having some clumping with this mascara: Make your lashes slightly damp with some water before applying this.
I was completely shocked when I saw all of the horrible reviews this mascara got!!! Out of all the mascara's I've tried this is my absolute favorite!!! It gives me great length and volume on my lashes, it doesn't clump up when I'm applying it. It doesn't flake off in the middle of the day, and even though it's not waterproof it has NEVER smudged down under my eyes, even after gym class.
Doesn't clump your lashes
Adds LOTS of length
the packaging feels more suited for a larger brush. Sometimes the small brush hits sides of the rim when you pull the wand out and it gets a little messy around the top of the rim.
Would I recommend this: absolutely. Its cheap and better than MAC's Zoom Lash, and their Plush Lash Mascara.
Rubbish! Doesn't coat my lashes well at all a complete disappointment. I don't recommend at all. Plenty of other budget mascaras that do a much better job.
Generally I am a big fan of Maybelline mascaras, but I don't get the hype on this one. I think it's the brush I dislike. The bristles on the brush are just too far apart to comb out clumps. Instead of emphasizing each lash, you get a bunch of pointy spiked out lashes that are all stuck together. I just swapped out the brush for an old The Colossal brush and it worked fine, just looked stupid in my makeup bag. I think that the reason Maybelline keeps Great Lash around is because it was popular when it first came out and has retained quite a following. I can remember my mom and aunts using this in the 80's because I recognize the pink and green tube.
For $6, you get what you pay for with this mascara. It did a good job of separating my lashes, but it didn't add much volume. It's a good everyday mascara because it gives you that wide-eyed look, but if you're looking for thick, voluminous lashes, this isn't for you. It doesn't clump much although I do have to use several coats to get the desired effect.
Went to visit my mum one day and forgot to bring my mascara so initally I borrowed this product from her...
I used to usually switch between a Dior mascara and a MAC mascara, depending on the look I was going for... but this mascara was definitely up there with the high-end brands!
My eyelashes are thick, but sparse and I love added volume but hate clumping. This mascara was perfect for a daytime eye and I ended up purchasing one for myself!
I'm really shocked at the reviews of this mascara. So many people absolutely hate it but I disagree completely. Personally, I have pretty pathetic lashes, they're short, no curl and not many of them either. I think that when people go to buy mascara they want the big, thick voluminous lashes and I think that's why this mascara gets left in the dust so often because it's not that kind of mascara. This is the perfect mascara for EVERY DAY natural looks but definitely NOT a night out mascara. It gives me very natural looking lashes, not really thick or clumpy. It doesn't give that false eyelash effect, it just looks like my own lashes but in much better condition. A bit darker, longer and like I have more of them. Now if you want something that gives huge lashes go in the other direction towards something like YSL shocking or something like that. Because the maybelline great lash is definitely more natural looking. If you like that sort of thing then you will like this. People always seem to have the highest expectations when it comes to mascara and this one will probably disappoint you because I think it's just a different concept. This is something that's great for younger girls that are first trying makeup because it's not gonna look like too much. I personally like this and it stays in my makeup bag most of the time. It also comes in a couple different colors which is great. I also love how it's not a pain in the ass to get off. With most mascaras I have to pull at my poor eyelids to get it off but this one just glided off with a makeup wipe. That made me very happy. All in all, I would say it's worth the buy IF you like natural looking lashes which most people don't. But it's not a bad mascara by any means.
This isn't the greatest mascara I've ever used. I don't think anyone finds this to be the absolute best mascara. But it's cheap and the bottles tend to last pretty long. It's one of those mascaras that are great to have on hand for when we don't feel like using our expensive stuff.
Of course I'd buy this again! I think this mascara is the bomb for a drugstore brand. It amplfies my lashes, stays on without the dreaded flaking and the price is dirt cheap. I always have several of these in my cosmetic case.
