I was blessed with long curly lashes..............that aren't very dark. woomp woomp :( if i dont wear mascara, my lashes are barely there and i look so tired! most mascara on the market is aimed to lengthen, something i dont need and those that claim to "volumize" just arent dark enough for me or they are too clumpy...... so i decided to try this baby here
at first, i hated it. the brush couldnt comb through my lashes, but i loved how dark and wet the formula was. after 2 months of trying, i gave up and bought benefit they're real! i love Benefit they're real! they make my lashes super long and feathery. but, i noticed that my tube dried out pretty quickly and benefit still wasnt making my lashes super dark. idk why, but something told me to dig for my great lash again.......
when i layer they're real on top on the great lash GURRRRRRRRRRRRLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL let me tell YOU i REALLY look like im wearing flasies!
i learned the way the brush is designed, it's not meant to be used the traditional zig zag pull up through the lashes method. i took great lash and rolled it onto my lashes and oooh child that brush grabbed onto each lash like a baby to its mother and i got GORGEOUS definition. btter than any high end ive tried. this formula is VERY VERY VERY WET so you will end up with it all over your lid but it is a small price to pay for how fabulous this mascara is. also, because it is wet, it is easy to get clumpy fast. but, i let it dry while i do my other eye and then let both eyes dry as i contour my face with bronzer and THEN layer my benefit mascara on top to add the extra length and separation.
overall, i love great lash now and i feel like if you experiment with it, you'll love it too
Overall good mascara, keep going back to this time after time. You know what your getting with this product it's nice and simple. Great dark black colour aswell.
I have medium length lashes that are fairly thick and this mascara was too wet for them and, although it did lengthen them it also made them look sparse do to the fact that it made them stick together very bad. The price was great for the amount but I won't be buying it again.
This is the most overhyped product of all time. It is the worst mascara I have ever used. Possibly it was a good mascara back when it came out, but the technology has improved so much in the past few decades. There are cheaper and MUCH MUCH better products out there....
Blah. I thought this would be amazing since my mom and sister used it while I was growing up. Unfortunately, this is the worst. Doesn't do anything for my lashes.
This was my first mascara and looking back at pictures of me wearing it, I wouldn't suggest ever wearing it as it just looks clumpy and awful.
This mascara is awful. If you're a preteen and just starting to use makeup and only wear mascara and lip gloss I can see why you'd like this.
At first I thought that maybe the brush was just bad, so I tried a different brush, but it just can't be saved. It clumps, weighs down, smudges.
Worst of all. It FLAKES. After I'd worn it for a few hours it started flaking like crazy.
Maybelline makes a lot of good mascaras, this just isn't one.
I heard so many good things about this and decided to try it out myself. I wish I had seen the reviews here first because this is possibly the most useless product for my lashes (or I should say lack thereof!!)
I have small eyes and pretty much non-existant lashes. So I need something that really makes a difference. This looks like I put nothing on at all! Even when I apply 3 coats - nada. Waste of time, effort and money.
If you already have long, thick lashes this will probably gives you a nice natural look. But if you want any noticeable volume or length I would keep on walking and not bother with this.
personally i love this mascara i am asian and have asian eyelashes so this works for me,its simple with no gimmicks. things like maybelline falshies and collosal dont work for me but this dose, it might not work for everyone but i like it. but the brush is a little small i would prefer if it was longer.The only other thing i didnt like is the packaging .
Mkay, I'm going to have to disagree with everyone else because I love this mascara! (It isn't my favorite though.) The packaging is just freaking cute first of all, which is the reason I bought it. In places like Target and Walmart these great lash mascaras always appear once in my visit, so I bought it. The price was kind of reasonable for a mascara like this. Next, it kind of clumps but not easily, and it's nice on my top lashes, but I use a different mascara to do my bottom lashes.
