Don't buy this mascara, for the love of God, please don't buy this mascara. I ran out of my mascara so I just grabbed whatever was in my local supermarket. Since this excuse of a mascara appears so much in magazines, I just took it. What a mistake! It clumps and smudges so bad. I'm always nervous and can't help checking every so often to the ladies' to see if it has smudged. I kept using it for a few weeks, trying to convince myself it's not so bad and I could finish the tube (I'm cheap!) but I can't stand it anymore! I'm going to buy a new mascara tomorrow.
well this mascara is ok....its not bad but i expected way more from it since they wrote make up artists love it lol.....cant complain for the prize though its dirt cheap oh well i will keep this one at the office so i have one when i need one but wont bu it again i rather buy a more expensive one
This is my second try with this mascara. I keep thinking that somehow I'm doing something wrong since every major beauty publication heaps awards on this product year after year. And I keep hearing makeup artists waxing poetic about this in those same publications. Can all these m/u artists be on crack and is this just really crappy mascara or is it operator error? I'll leave it to you to decide. One more negative review out of almost 2000 probably won't make a difference any more than a drop in a bucket in a flood. I think the brush is too small and the bristles too far apart. I could only get one coat on before it dried and once it dried, I couldn't add any more to it. To tell you how much trouble I had with this, I actually had to try to comb through my lashes. I NEVER have to do this, not with any mascara I've ever used. Usually wiping off the excess in the tube and on some paper towels is sufficient. I was actually sitting there at work this morning trying to separate my lashes with a staple!!! Because I don't carry a lash comb with me (there's never been a need) and because all my push pins were holding up my daughter's art work, I resorted to separating my glued-together eyelashes with a staple. I looked like I had 3-4 spider lashes on each eye. I'm not quite sure what I would've said had my coworkers seen me attacking my own lashes with something other than a mascara wand. The only pros: cheap price, rich color (I got "very black"), easy accessibility. Don't let the inexpensive price and distinctive packaging , or in my case, the claim that this makes your eyes look a little whiter because there are actually some subtle blue pigments in the formula (I actually read that in one the of magazines) trick you. This mascara isn't going to make you anything but annoyed for giving in to the hype.
With all the talk about this mascara, I had to finally try it. Plus, it was on sale for less than 3 bucks. Now, I have very dark brown/black eyelashes that are fairly long (they touch my eyebrows when I'm looking straight ahead). That being said, you may be wondering, why even wear mascara at all. Good question, but the answer is a simple "lift and separate." Hence, I like to see what different mascaras do for my eyes. This mascara does both with the little wand (surprise), but it also gives my lashes a "wet" look. As others have mentioned, it does take a while to dry, which can be a little frustrating when trying to build it up. So put a layer on when you do your makeup in the morning and another when you get out of the car at work (or wherever you may be). And that famous pink and green packaging? I love it! Definitely will be rebuying this even though it's not exactly my HG.
Wow, I always thought this mascara was way overrated, and I'm surprised that people here agree with me, because my friends seem to really like this mascara and every magazine raves about it. Maybelline is a great mascara brand, but this is the worst one that I've tried from them. This really doesn't do anything for my lashes at all. Instead of enhancing my lashes (which is what mascara is supposed to do), it made them look worse. It smudges and clumps a lot. Although this is cheap, it's a waste of money in my opinion. I'd rather wear no mascara at all rather than resorting to this.
Worst product ever made - no idea why anyone would like this. The fame that this product has is one of the best marketing and PR scams I have ever seen.
The formula is wet, takes 7 minutes to dry which leads to getting rings under your eyes and on your lids. No such thing as layering this mascara bc of the time it takes for each coat to dry. The bristles are very far apart which is good for separating and leaving you with lashes that are 1 centimeter apart from eachother. The formula is not long wearing, its just horrible. Don't even waste your $.
I have used this forever and I've always been fond of it. I will say I need the waterproof version or else it smudges, but as long as I use that one I have always loved it. I've tried others over the years but they were not as good. I have not tried others since belonging to theis website, and I plan to venture out there and check some out!
What this does for my short lashes:
Looks neat and natural. I can layer over and over without getting clumps. Never flakes. I don't have long lush lashes so I never expected my mascara to give me that. Let me try a few others and I'll come back and report:)
Okay, I've been on this site for years now, and I finally feel compelled to get myself involved in the GL debate. I DO NOT understand what is so terrible about this mascara. It is an OK product, easy to find, always on sale, which means it is dirt cheap. You can throw it in your bag and not stress about losing a $20 tube of mascara. This does not flake on me and it gives me nice thick lashes. I don't find that it delivers the drama nor does it have HG status, but it's a fine product. Just my 2 cents.
My goodness. This is possibly the worst mascara I have ever tried!
I kept hearing all these great things around the Great Lash Mascara and I see people using it all over the media, so I decided to give it a go. But it's horrible. I doesn't keep my lashes curled. In fact, it straightens my lashed! I've got Asian eyelashes so they're pretty straight without mascara, but with Great Lash, they were much more noticeably straight! It also gave me, for the lack of a better word, "stick"-like lashes... it's kind of hard to describe but it was not even relatively close to what I want from my mascara: long, full, curled, soft-looking lashes.
In other words, Great Lash Mascara sucks more than a vacuum. Don't believe the hype.
This mascara was horrible in my book. It gave me no thickness or length. The only thing that it really seemed to do well is clump, smudge and waste your money. I don't see how on earth that it ever gets any good reviews.
I will never buy it again as long as I live.
