I bought this mascara because they had a buy one get one free at Target. I can't refuse a sale. On the package it said "#1 mascara by Allure magazine". I wasn't asking for much., just an overall decent mascara. No no no. This is one of the worst mascaras I have ever tried! It clumps and leaves black racoon looking eyes. Not only that, if your eyes happen to water and you get a little in them- it burns so badly! I will never ever buy this mascara again.

I'm surpised at the bad reviews. Great Lash is truly unique – the packaging alone sets it apart from Maybellines other mascaras. This is definitely *not* a mascara with self esteem and shyness issues. With a bright pink body and a lime green top – this product screams ‘look at me!’ from all angles.

The product is thick and dark (I’m sure they stock a variety of shades, but baby, I only do black). I like the applicator brush...it's a dense brush in an oval shape which makes application really easy, but it may take a little longer because the brush is quite small.


When I first put it on my naturally average lashes looked slightly thickened, quite lengthened and dark. One coat was actually enough, and off I went into the night, to enjoy some bacardi breezers….

…upon my return, I pulled out one of my usual Simple cleansing face wipes, and proceeded to drunkenly remove my face paint. The mascara came off REALLY easily, unlike some reviews say.


If you want maximum glamour and effect, 3 coats do a really good job – don’t be too surprised if you’re dragged on stage and made to sing ‘I Am What I Am’ by ladymen in feathered boas….anyway, this mascara is also pretty cheap, so I can't complain about that either. I like wearing it for Uni; I find that I don't need any other face makeup when I'm wearing this because it makes my lashes stand out and look really dark, so I can just wear it alone. It doesn't smudge/flake at all throughout the day or irritate my sensitive eyes.


Not HG (define-a-lash is!) but a good mascara to have.


UPDATE:

I brought a new tube the other day. The formula is a bit different, more wet. It makes it a bit harder to work with without getting mascara all over my face. However, it still works well. No clumping, no smudging/flaking, rich dark black colour, lengthens and gives some thickness. I really like this mascara ^^

This mascara is by far the WORST I have ever used. It clumps like no ones business, smells awful, and makes my lashes look like the scary dude from that movie A Clockwork Orange. Steer clear of this junk. If you want to go check opt for Maybelline-Full & Soft instead.

I cannot understand the popularity of this product. It is wretched. I hated it in high school/middle school and I hate it now. I thought I would retry it, because it is so popular, and I thought maybe I had been applying it wrong as a kid. Not so much. The clumping was horrible, I got it all over my eyes and it gave me tarantula lashes. I took it off immediately, threw it in the garbage and happily went back to Clinique's Long Pretty Lashes.

GOD. i hate hate hate this mascara. it's the most over hyped mascara in the world. i heard that make up artists MAY swear to this, but i absolutely hate it. it clumps, it takes so long for it to actually work, it's wet in texture, it's a hassle to take off--it makes you look like a raccoon, it doesn't lengthen my lashes, it doesn't curl, doesn't volumize--basically it just makes my eyes look disgusting, sticky, wet, dark and clumpy. this is the most ridiculous mascara in the world.

and plus, the wand is so tiny, it's so hard to apply! and another bad thing is that because it's so wet, when i try to put it on my lower lashes, i always hit my waterline/eye/skin!

the only good thing about this mascara is that it's a decent finishing coat after i've applied a really good lengthening and volumizing mascara that doesn't have the color i want it to. it makes my lashes a deep deep black. but other than that, i hate it.

This is always a great fall back product! Works great, natural looking, lasts well and is very inexpensive. Nothing too special, but no disappointments.

Save yourself a trip to the drug store, and just throw your money right in to the garbage can. I love cheap, drugstore mascaras and I wasn't expecting a lot but this product is ridiculous.

It was TERRIBLE. It was clumpy and sticky feeling when I applied it. I patiently combed and waited for it to dry, but it didn't stay put at all; within an hour or two it was all smudgy and I had brutal racoon eyes. It made my eyes irritated. It also cannot hold a curl. The brush isn't great either. On top of all that, it didn't do much for my lashes except make them look strangely black in a very fake, not-good way.

I can't decide what's more surprising; that they still make this product or that people are still buying it! Any drugstore brand is better than this.

Sorry, but this mascara does nothing for me. It makes my naturally blonde, medium thickness, medium length lashes spiky and clump together. I feel like I swipe it on, and all of a sudden I see 4 solid black spikes on the top, 2 on the bottom. Stupid. Diorshow is my HG. I'm happy for those of you that love this, but as for me, I will continue to invest in mascaras only found in Sephora.

I absolutely love this mascara, for the length and volume it gives, and most of all, for the ultra black and glossy finish it impairs. But alas, I have a problem with mascaras smudging, and this is the worst one in that arena.... so I can't wear it nor will I repurchase it. I'm basically on the lookout for a mascara that will look like great lash but wear infallibly, at a decent price, and the search goes on... (hate dry forumlas). I guess I'll have to go back to YSL faux cils, but it only lasts a month, and it's so expensive!
