I love this mascara !! Ive bought the original great lash a couple of time before, and i didnt hate it but it didnt really do much for me, sometimes it even got clumy. But the Big version is much better. The wand is alot like the maybelline colossal. You can get a really natural look with one coat and build more on for more volume and it never gets clumpy !! And it really cheap, got it for under $5 at walgreens, and when i bought it they gave me a coupon for a free great lash ! Guess ill be getting another great lash BIG =)
I was so excited about this product since I like the regular great lash mascara. I tried it and what a disappointment! There is no difference between the regular great lash. Some reviewers says the formula is better but in my opinion it is not. The mascara does not clump no matter how many coats you swipe on your lashes. But, it does not build volume at all. I'll be returning this one.
I absolutely HAD to have this. Bought it at Walgreens for cheap; aaand I kind of love it. It lengthens really well for me. The volume is SUPER buildable (and boy do i mean BUILDABLE!) like, im talkin 4 coats of this stuff. Which is actually perfect for me since i like ALOT of volume and ALOT of length and with this I can just build build build and it never gets clumpy.
I love big huge bristle brushes; definitely not a fan of these new short silicone or whatever they are brushes. I actually hate them. So this brush is definitely right up my alley.
Wow...I was afraid to try this one based on how much I absolutely hate the original Great Lash. But I'm really surprised--it builds length instantly (as good as their Lash Stiletto mascara) with very little to no clumping! As for volume, not so much, but then again the packaging does say that the volume part is buildable, so I can see why you wouldn't get instant volume here. No flakes or racoon eyes either! An excellent improvement over the original, which I've always thought is so overrated. In fact, if Maybelline wants to ditch the original and keep this one, I'd have no problem with that!
Didn't wow me. I found this mascara pretty much average. Did not hold a curl, does smudge.
its just meh.. nothing spectacular... if you love regular great lash, then you will love this.. i am not fond of the original. i use it only on my bottom lashes. i thought this would be better.. its not horrible, don't get me wrong, but its not the volumising mascara as advertised.. i have thin stick straight medium-ish lashes.. i had to apply a few coats just to notice it.. it took forever to dry.. next time i will put my three bucks and change to something better. will not repurchase again...
Great Lash BIG delivers much better than the original Great Lash. It may take a few coats to get your desired volume, however it does a good job of lengthening without any clumps! A great every day mascara.
Seeing as I was not impressed with the Colossal mascara, I didnt expect to be impressed with this one considering they have the same brush. I'd actually say this was the same if colossal didnt boast "collagen". Natural lash lovers will like this mascara, because if you want dramatic lashes, it'll take you 4-5 coats to get there. I was impressed with the non clumping factor, and the blackest black was indeed very black. I've also been wearing this for the past 3 days, and I have not experiened the racoon eye. To wrap it up, it is a good mascara for those who want buildable options, but I like instant volume and length. Yeah, call me picky =]
I think Maybelline finally improved Great Lash! It's been hyped up the yin yang for so long, but I never was a fan of it. But now they changed the brush... it's not one of those new-fangled rubbery silicone ones. It's a large Christmas tree type one... and guess what? NO CLUMPS!
Impressive volume and length, and the color is intensely black. The first coat didn't wow me, but the second one sure did! My lashes are not hard and crusty, either. Plus I got 2 for $4.49 at CVS. It's BOGOF time, and I had a coupon. I didn't see any brown though, just Very Black and Blackest Black, which is what I bought. I love the color translation into French: "Noir Tres Noir." LOL, like "Bond, James Bond."
