I purchased Great lash mascara during their 40th year aniversary or something at ulta 2 for 2.14. I bought the clear mascara and the blackest black. When i first bought this product i thought it was terrific and i've had it a few months now and its alright , its not as good as it was but its not all gooey and nasty like most mascaras get after a few months. I also noticed there is a weird smell about this mascara and iam semi-allergic to it. The stuff itself gets very stiff on your lashes and it creates like a spider thing about it at the very very end of the day, how gross! Also, the brush is very annoying and doesn't really add as much Great lash too it as it claims it does, maybe thats because its not as new? I think i would only buy this if it was really cheap on sale!
I've decided to try drugstore mascara, so this was my first purchase. I have very long lashes, but I'm looking for something that makes them stand out. This was okay, they look natural, and since I have long lashes to begin with, that's not a bad thing but it doesn't give me the WOW FACTOR that I'm looking for. So I'm going to continue my search. The wand on this mascara is just to short and for that reason I won't purchase this one again.
Great Lash Mascara -- too much hype.
The blackest black didn't have much difference from the VERY BLACK version.
The packaging turned me off -- I'd rather have the original.
Had a very natural effect. Good if that is what you are looking for.
I love this mascara! I wouldn't go a day without it. It definitely gives my eyelashes the dark, dramatic look I want, and it coats really well. However, I only use this mascara over my base mascara (Maybelline Volum' Express) because I don't get the results I like using Great Lash by itself. I find when I use it alone, it doesn't lengthen my lashes or give them any curl. It simply makes them dark and, in my opinion, rather straight and bland. After experimenting with other products, I've finally found my combo! I apply two coats of Volum' Express, and then follow up with one coat of Great Lash. Using Great Lash at the end, as the top coat, gives my eyelashes the dark look I love, and it provides a wonderfully thick coat that makes them noticeable. I always receive compliments on my eyelashes and the way they look! I wouldn't trade this mascara for anything.
I've tried pretty much every single kind/brand of mascara. Whenever they come out with new one's i'm all over it but they usually go to waste and I'm back with Maybelline's Great Lash Mascara in Blackest Black. I ALWAYS get compliments on how thick and long my eyelashes look..or I have people asking where I got my fake eyelashes because they look so real. It's funny to think that when I take off my mascara I have the shortest eyelashes ever.
If you know how to apply mascara to give the long, thick look this mascara is great and one of the cheapest. I should really stop wasting my money on all this other crap because I KNOW i'll keep coming back.
I bought this because I really wanted to love a Great Lash mascara. This is a BIT better than the normal Great Lash, but it did nothing for my skimpy lashes other than make them dark.
Gives a natural glossy black look to lashes. The Perfect budget mascara. I tend to replace mine every couple of months as it can start to leave clumps. Lovely for fresh fluffy eyelashes!
I love this mascara because of the dark color and no clumps, but don't like how it does nothing to add volume or even length. I recommend using it on your bottom lashes to make eyes 'pop' (to make eyes stand out even more line the inside of bottom eyelid with a white eyeliner. I like applying it to already made up lashes to make lashes really black.
Overall, good for those who are in a rush to do makeup in the morning.
ugh..ok when I first bought this mascara like the first day i loved it..and then after it didn't look as good as it did the first time i put it on..sometimes it works really well sometimes it's alright..do u guys know any good tricks for this mascara to make my eye lashes look longer? or more dramatic a good way to layer it?
so many negative reviews.. but this actually works really well for me. it lasts all day & makes my lashes defined. my only problem is that it takes a while to dry but other than that, it's great.
