I have NEVER understood why this product constantly wins "Best of" polls and is such a favorite of celebrities and make up artists. I have always found that it is thin and runny and smears at the slightest provocation. Also, the brush seems flimsy to me.
I know some people swear by this this classic mascara, but I think it's one of the worst mascaras that I've tried.
The formula is too wet, and the brush doesn't distribute the mascara evenly. It makes me look like I have 5 huge lashes lol. I had a mess around my eye area because it takes forever to dry, so the mascara was smearing everywhere.
I used a lash comb to fix things up, but my lashes still looked droopy and messy. I had a little flaking through the day, but not bad.
Overall, thumbs down for Great Lash.
The brush is terrible and clumpy. the formula is okay, the price is great, but its very irritating to your eyes and it burns the first time you use it. I use a old mascara wand that i like and dip it in the great lash bottle, because i'm cheap and i don't want to waste it, but i won't buy again.
I have no idea why this has such bad press on here. If applied right, I can get it to have the same effect on my lashes as Lancome Hypnose. For the price, it's unbeatable. It makes my lashes look long and fine, zero clumps. Classy.
If you have time to work with massarca it works really good. I would use this massarca with a primer, I put two coats of massarca than I put a gel massarca and repeat this step like 8 times when I get a crazy looking looooong full massarca look I get a needle pin and separate each lash to define and remove clumps. The massarca last all day, it doesn't smudge, however it washes off easy and my lashes don't fall off trying to take it off. It is alot of steps to get the look I like with this product. It's not the best nor worst massarca but I will continue to buy it. My eyes are really sensitive and this product does kinda burn my eyes when I apply it, but this happens with 70% of the massarca.
I'm blessed to have pretty volumized and long lashes i also have à lot and I honestly could never find a mascara that worked as well as this one did! My lashes never hold a curl with most mascaras and yes, it can get clumpy but its honestly worth the price and I think so much more! It keeps my lashes up and fluttery. I do not feel like it flakes off at all and I really enjoy this mascara and definatly will be re-purchasing
Good for first time mascara users. It is very cheap and is good enough quality to use when first starting use of makeup. Overall, the wand is not designed that well, so it will generally clump most eyelash types and the formula is liquidy. Maybelline certainly dissipointed me with this.
Only mascara I will ever wear. Nothing makes my lashes longer, fuller, and clump-free! Price is awesome, and is better than the department store mascaras.
This is probably my least favorite mascara on the market. I'll never understand why it still gets raved about and awarded in magazines like Cosmo and Glamour. It runs horribly, even after only a couple hours of wear, and the brush just isn't that great.
I can't believe this product has received such bad reviews. It does a great job of lengthening and separating lashes. It lasts literally for AGES, and it costs Â£5.. I would use this product over a high end brand mascara.. Lisa Eldridge has also said good things about this mascara and she's a top make-up artist.. I would highly recommend this mascara.. And would ask people to give it a chance before giving up on it...
