I know not many people like this mascara, but I actually do like this mascara. I actually prefer the Great Lash with the Curling wand. This mascara is great due to the fact that since it is a little more wet than most mascaras, you can actually keep on building onto the lashes. But remember, you have to keep on coating and not letting it dry between coats or else you won't acheive the full lustrous look that the Maybelline says.

The only con I have about this mascara is that though it is wet, sometimes it tends to flake off. Other than that, I do like this mascara.

didn't like this mascara at all. I've read that makeup artists love it, but I don't see why. Doesn't give you volume or length. It's a blah mascara.

This mascara is okay. Not the best. I think if you want a more natural look then this mascara can work for you but if you want a more dramatic look, its better to find another mascara. This mascara is usually on sale or it comes in packets of two. It doesn't do much for my lashes but add a little bit a color. Maybe a little length, but very very little. Like 2-3% longer. No volume either. The one I purchased was the darkest shade they had, but it wasn't dark at all! It was dark greyish. So that kind of disapointing. Another con is when I applied more than two coats of mascara it clumped up! And it just doesn't look nice at all. Oh and plus the product in the tube dries up quickly. So yeah, I don't think I'm gonna go back to this product.

This was my first mascara purchase ever. I hated it.

I really don't understand how this mascara could possibly win awards and have professional makeup artists swear by it (unless their arms were twisted behind their back by Maybelline thugs). No matter how I apply this on my lashes, it always clumps. Getting it off from my lashes is a nightmare. I would never, ever buy this again.

Awww Great Lash has a bad rep on MUA!! I used it years ago and I hated it because it was watery and did nothing for my lashes. I'm wondering if Maybelline changed the formula cause I gave it another try and it actually lengthened and thickened my lashes, almost as good as my Loreal Voluminous!! I don't like the brush, but I do like that its small. Not bad at all plus its cheaper than the more popular mascaras ( I got a two pack for $4).

I HATE THIS. I too bought into the hype a few years ago and tried this awful, watery mess of a mascara. Why do people like this?! It does absolutely nothing for my lashes. What a waste of money.

I don't understand why people say this is like, some sort of secret weapon of makeup artists. It doesn't actually DO anything. For some reason this mascara is always stocked by the registers at drug stores, Target, etc and on a whim I bought it. Waste of $4.50 and the waterproof formula was also soap-proof! Took forever to remove!

This was my very first mascara and it was such a disaster. It was clumpy and hard to apply with. It is relatively cheap though.

I hate this mascara!!!! I have dark, long eyelashes. I use mascara basically to get a little more volume, since my lashes aren't as thick as I'd like them to be. This makes them clump so bad and it also makes them hard. Definitely wouldn't recommend this to anyone!!!
