This is a classic. I've been using this since high school and when all else fails, you must take it back to the Maybelline Great Lash Mascara. There is minimal clumping and it does a decent job.
Ughh...! I don't understand all the rave this product got. It does nothing for me, except putting color on my lashes. It uncurls them, doesn't last much and I just can't work with the brush. All my lashes stick together and I have to work with a clean brush to get all the clumps out... No length added neither.
Bad bad mascara
I don't understand the hype, the awards, the publicity?
This stuff runs, straightens my lashes after I curl them, smudges and flakes.
maybelline great lash...
This mascara is a joke. Don't believe the magazine hype. NO volume at all...
I really don't think I'll buy this again. It looks good and defines my lashes, but it makes me eyes itch and burn a bit by the end of the day. For a couple more bucks I can get something better that lasts longer.
Not bad, it does the job and has pretty darn good staying power (I bought the waterproof version). The good: the jet black shade, the lengthening ability, and the formula that allows you to layer without clumping (if the brush picks up too much, removing extra goop on tissue paper really helps, the trick is to apply horizontally and do it by layers). The 'eh': lack of thickening ability (it defines well, but even with layers it's not really thickening) and it's not the easiest to remove. If I need a basic, everyday mascara, I won't mind buying again because it's really inexpensive and easy to find although I'm always open to trying better drugstore alternatives.
This mascara was way too wet and goopy for me. It was like taking paint to my eyelashes. It did make my eyelashes thick, though.
IMO this product does not live up to all the top beauty pics list it makes its way onto. On me, this product does not give a lot of length or a lot of volume, but still manages to look very unnatural due to a lot of clumping and I think there's something a bit off on the texture. Cheap though, but I'd certainly never repurchase; for a buck or two more you can get a much much better product.
why the heck is this always a top pick in magazines? It did nothing for me! I just threw it away..
I don't think it's a dreadful mascara, but I found it to do very little for my lashes, other than make them a bit clumpy - although perhaps that was my fault! I'm not sure why it's always advertised as being quite so wonderful, maybe because they base it on sales, and we all keep buying it!
