For the life of me I cannot understand why so many women (including makeup artists) like this mascara! It pulls all the curl out of my lashes and basically gums them up without lengthening.
I think this was Tammy Faye Baker's mascara! Ugh!!!

I don't know why makeup artists rave about this mascara since it smears like crazy on me. I guess this is one of those "love it" or "hate it" items. If they ever change the formula to make it smear less, then I might consider purchasing this again. In the meantime, I'll stick to my L'Oreal mascara.

Another product that everybody raves about that I've never had any luck with, in either waterproof or regular formula. It's as if the brush is too short or something . . . my eyelashes get clumpy and sticky. It dries out very quickly too, but it's cheap and easily replaced. Only in a pinch!

EW. I liked this until I found out that not all mascara is crap. Very clumpy formula. Sick. Hardly worth anyone's time. Go try the Maybelline Illegal Lengths... Now THAT'S mascara!

I love the way it goes on!

I'm so surprised by the bad reviews! I've tried TONS of mascara, Clinique, Lancome (HATE their mascaras), Bourjois... you name it, I've tried it. I always come back to this (although I now use Lash Discovery by maybelline on the top now and Great lash on the bottom). Maybe it's the waterproof that's better? That's what I've always purchased, and my lashes stay curled all day, no flakes, no smudging, and easily comes off with my Bi-facil. My only gripe is that after about 4 weeks it needs to be replaced, but at this price, who cares?

'Makeup Staple'??? The fact that so many magazine editors rate this mascara as the ‘Best’, is proof that it's actually so bad! It runs and irritates the eye so much, your vision becomes blurred...hence the reason, they can't see all the clumps, smudging and lack of volume.

I like that the tube is funky coloured, they should make more funky pink packaged items!
The mascara itself is ok, better than the lash expansion although rubbing black hair dye on your lashes woould be better than the lash expansion!
Not a lot of curl or volume is received when using this product. Spend more money to get a better mascara imo. Got to look after your eye area.

The WORST mascara I have ever tried and that's a lot. I don't know why this ends up in every magazine as the best. Clumped like crazy, way too runny, and the brush just plain sucked. I gave this mascara plenty of chances to redeem itself but I was sorely disapointed. RUN FAR AWAY from this!
Age: 25-29 Skin: Combination, Fair Hair: Blond Eyes: Green
Yuk! I feel there is some sort of conspiracy going on with this mascara, La Mer, and Cetaphil. This mascara is bad stuff. It smells nasty, it looks nasty, it made my eyes water, the brush is crappy and it runs. And all for such a bargain price!! I refuse to spend a lot of money on mascara, but this is not the one for me. I will stick to my Lashfinity.

i bought this like 3 times, to make sure i didnt just get a BAD tube, i guess they all are runny, wet, and the brush is horrible, it made my lashes look like i had none! they all got stuck together and ran to hide......shame, since all other maybelline mascaras are so great!
Age: 25-29 Skin: Dry Hair: Brown Eyes: Hazel
I too never understood the hype about this. Too wet and messy and builds no length or volume. My lashes stuck together when I used this. Hate it.

I don't understand why this is voted "Best" in so many magazines..I get some every so often because I figure that I must be doing something wrong, since so many people claim to love it. Nope..it's always the same for me, a flaking, clumpy mess..the clumpiest. I won't buy it again.
Age: 36-43 Skin: Acne-prone, Fair Hair: Red Eyes: Hazel
I bought this product because of the rave reviews in magazines. I didn't expect it to be waterproof because I don't use waterproof, but what I got was a runny mess before the end of the day. Fortunately, one of my friends swears by it, so it went to her.

I like to try different mascaras to try the latest products. Ive tryed so many different brands but i find thismascara works well and lasts for a long time. It is quite thick tho and can go clumpy if I put too much on. I would recommend tht you use a lash comb directly after applying a coat of the maybeline mascara to seperate ur lashes.

I must have a thing FOR Maybelline mascara because I use Great Lash and Full and Soft and LOVE LOVE LOVE them both.
I like the boring basic packaging because it is "no gimmicky trendy up to date package ... just a GREAT LASH,"
My mom used this stuff for years so this was naturally my "first" mascara ever and that was about 7 years ago ... I have tried many others that I like also, but this is the one that I always go back to ... love that you can layer it ... or wear it with one coat. Depending on the look you are going for! All in all I believe that Great Lash lives up to its hype.

How in the world people "swear by" Great Lash and it winds up in InStyle year after year, I'll never understand. If you want flakey, clumpy, itchy, fake looking nasty mess on your eyelashes -this is your product. Run, don't walk to the L'Oreal counter and get one of their formulations. Voluminous, Lash Intensifique or FeatherLash.

This mascara did absolutely nothing for my lashes, except weigh them down. Oh, and it did separate them...but so much so that they had absolutely no volume. I have NO clue why this is the "make up artists' staple" in their bags...mine went straight to the trash bag!
Age: 30-35 Skin: Combination Hair: Brown Eyes: Brown
I hate this mascara. It's too thin and the wand is clunky. I tried to give mine away at the office and it was very hard to do. No one wanted it. I think it got thrown out. I don't understand why it always comes up as a top favorite in all those beauty polls. Yech.

I think if you are having clumping problems with any mascara you have to make sure the brush is not overly coated before using. It surprises me that this is the complaint about Great Lash, because it's the only one that DOESN'T flake and over-clump for me. I use non-waterproof, maybe that's it. Anyway... I think it's a great everyday mascara, lasts forever (actually better after the first week, less product on the brush). I've tried all the high-priced models and nothing to me is any better (most are worse). It's a good thing that it stays wet and never gets stiff or hard, because then you can go over it with the brush and separate the lashes for a very nice, natural effect. I often sleep in it, and I still don't smudge or get raccoon eyes! It's funny that so many people have different reactions to things, huh?
