I am actually reviewing this for a co-worker/good friend that doesn't know MUA but I thought of ya'll when I saw it. I was walking by her cubicle at work and she was bent over close to the desk with a lash comb over a mirror and I asked her, "what ARE you doing??" She said that she'd run out of her Definicils and as a temp, picked up that "stuff that everyone say's is good in the pink tube". Yup, Great Lash. She said her lash's were all clumped together and she was combing them out. And then she said that she had flakes under her eyes and hated the stuff. Yet another "stellar" review of Great Lash. I swear, Maybelline is paying the fashion mags to tout that stuff. I know some people seem to like it, but geez...there are TONS of cheap mascara's out there that far, far outperform this. I use Almay One Coat Lengthening mascara (am on my 4th tube) and love it. I would NEVER buy Great Lash to "tide me over" until I got to Macy's or where ever to get what I really like.
What a hunk of junk. This mascara is too watery and the wands bristles aren't very fine, leaving the applicant with spidery, clumpy undefined lashes. i've tried this on more than one occasion and it is one of the crappiest mascaras ever. it gets all over the place and takes a long time to dry even for just two coats! NO VOLUMIZING WHATSOEVER!!! BLECHH!!
if you like looking like you have 4 eyelashes on each of your eyes, this is the look for you. i think this is the stuff Tammy Faye must've used.
Lastly, I look like a raccoon after I've washed my face in the evening because it smears SO BAD and doesn't come off easy. What a disgusting mess!
I have to agree with everyone else that this stuff sucks. I thought maybe it would work, maybe I was one of the "lucky" one's but no, I had to be kidding myself.
Don't waste your money. I prefer to spend money on a product that works: I use Diorshow Unlimited and love it.
This mascara is the worst product I have ever used! Like everyone else, I cannot understand why make-up artists, celebs and magazines adore it so much. Here are four words to summarize this product: stiff and spikey lashes. Save your money. Do not buy this item.
Every beauty magazine prasies this mascara to death, and I'd love to know why. I HATE IT!!! First of all, it takes forever to dry, and when it does, it is STIFF and spidery. I bought this when I was like 12, back when I didn't know good from bad, and there really wasn't anything else to buy (not for my budget at 12, anyhow!) I bought it again a couple years ago after hearing all the hype. NO...just NO!!
I hate this stuff. It makes my eyelashes stick together. It also makes them very stiff. I also think the formula is too liquidy. The only plus is that it doesn't flake very much and the blackest black is a nice color.
Okay, I have to admit, If I was to review this product even a week ago I would give it 0 lippies. BUT... I was doing my usual browsing down the asiles of target and my eyes wandered to that way too firmilar pink and green mascara. I have bought this so many times in the past and HATED it.
So I brought it home and figured I have to be doing something wrong. I took a tissue and wiped the wand off of all the extra product. Let me tell you, this is such a great mascara. You really have to experiment to find out what works, but I promise...give it time and you, too, will find that its amazing.
I'm surprised to see so many bad reviews! I've tried other mascaras but I always come back to this one. It goes on evenly, lengthens and thickens my lashes, and doesn't smudge easily, yet it washes right off with soap. Plus it NEVER CLUMPS. I might buy a more expensive mascara but it usually doesn't seem worth the money, I always go back to my trusty $5 Maybelline Great Lash.
This product is so overrated. I can only think that it continues to reap kudos because people have a nostalgia about it since it's been around forever. It doesn't really do anything for your lashes, does not go on easily, and heaven forbid that you have oily skin like me, because it will SMUDGE ALL OVER YOUR EYES, BIG TIME!!!
Well, my mom bought me this as my first mascara. I used it and liked it. But, then, I did not like it anymore. It takes forever to dry, clumps my eyelashes up, and is really thick. I would suggest this for someone who's eyelashes have no color. That is one great thing it does have: color. Otherwise, I found it just made my lashes a mess.
