It lengthens and volumises my lashes, but if I try to apply more than one layer it just clumps

I got the darkest black from TK Maxx last year for under 3 and for the price I thought why not try what felt like the most popular mascara when I was in high school 10+ years ago.

Well. I am glad the mascaras I got for my birthday and Christmas in my adolescent years was not this one - thanks mum!
The packaging is cool, bold, clashing and shapley - the bottle does more to the eyes than the product.
I have short straight eyelashes and this mascara didn't do much, I liked that the formula wasn't wet and the tapered wand was a nice size to get to the root occasionally it dried quick and clumped, it didn't create curl but held a curl reasonably well and didn't smudge unless I'm sweating profusely.

This mascara sounds great from that, right? That's what I'm thinking, but I'm reminded that it was very natural and didn't do anything but give a very light layer, which is ideal for school goers with long lashes but not for my little eyes I needed a little bit more, then and now!

I wouldn't repurchase but I am glad I tried.

This will be the worst mascara I ever tried. It did nothing on me. no volume. no lengthening, nothing. this might be good mascara who wants to tint their "light" coloured eyelashes but this really did nothing on my already dark eyelashes. Definitely did not give "great lash" as the name suggests. I don't like the mascara packaging either. The colouring of the mascara tube is just plain ugly to me. I do not know why this mascara is still one of the best seller and never discontinued. It is a mystery to me but maybe many other people love it, not sure.

Used this mascara for years. This stuff was the most popular mascara while I was growing up. It isn't horrible but for me it was too.....wet. If that makes any sense

I used this mascara about two years , when I knew nothing about make-up. Then I stopped using it and tried out more mascaras (mostly from very cheap brands). Sadly, those mascaras started my eczema, so I thought that this mascara from Maybelline would be great, because it did nothing to my skin as I remembered.
Well, the truth is- it really did nothing. I need product which makes my lashes look more voluminous and separate them good. This Great Mascara offers no of these things, plus it smudges after 3 hours. So big no from me.

I've bought this three times, all years spaced apart.

How silly of me. I should have remembered how much I hated this.

No volume. No definition. No length. This is only mascara to flat-out give me clumps. But, it made my pale lashes look black. It's natural, I suppose?

This is super cheap, that's the only reason I've ever bought it. Hopefully I'll remember not to buy this again.

I like the pink and green packaging of this mascara and the fact that it does not clump. For me it didn't do anything special and so although it's affordable I will not be repurchasing.

Not sure why people aren't a fan of this one! I guess everyone suits different things, but this mascara has been my saving grace for quite a while now!
I bought this at my local superdrug a few months back as a cheaper alternative to the MAC mascara I was using at the time. I've found that this mascara is amazing for enhancing my lashes and making them look long and full! I do apply several coats, as I like my lashes to look the fullest they can, but this is no problem and only takes a minute as the mascara dries so quickly!
I am getting to the end of the bottle now, which means the mascara is getting less and less usable, but I will definitely be repurchasing this at the end of this week as it has been a cheap, firm favourite!
Always seem to get lots of people asking where my mascara is from when I wear this one and nobody can believe how cheap it is for what it does and how long it lasts!!
Also seems to curl lashes too, giving them a natural, yet glam look!

I buy this every now and then because it's cheap, forgetting how much I hate the formula. I end up looking like Beetlejuice within two hours because it just rubs off when I blink and it does nothing for my short, straight lashes.

I liked this product, and you probably will too if you enjoy a natural looking lash. However, I have gone cruelty free with my makeup within the past few months so I will not be repurchasing this. It's a shame, this was my favourite mascara.
