Definitely one of the most overrated products out there...I remember finding it in allure and seventeen with those yearly mascara awards and I finally go it super cheap in a two pack at target. I think i bought two of these for just 5 dollars, so I was thrilled to be getting that deal. I hated it when I first tried it out but I grew used to it and liked how flexible the wand was around my lashes. But every time I wore this mascara, I had horrendous raccoon eyes by the end of the day..The curl definitely doesn't hold up either, but I honestly didn't expect it to for only a couple bucks. I've tried tons of mascaras since...all sorts of maybelline, covergirl, rimmel, almay, revlon, and maxfactor mascaras. Maxfactor had been my favorite until i discovered my ultimate HG: Maybelline Volum' Express Turbo Boost Waterproof in "Very Black"...AMAZING lashes that hold curl and everything all day long...and BIG TIP--blowdry your lash curler and you'll be amazed with this mascara...my lashes look TOO long..and they even hold curl AFTER I remove my eye makeup completely.......=)..but this maybelline great lash product disappointed me nonetheless....

I think that magazines throw this out there as award winning just because its been around for a while. Theres nothing really so great about it. Its watery. I didnt get any lengthening or volume. Not sure what all the hype is about. I gave it 2 lippies because ...well , it IS award winning.

People make all this HUGE hype about it, so I decided to try it out.

I was very disapointed, it didnt do much for me.
And I found it to be quite liquid-y.

It works okay in a duo, I used Lash Blast for 1 or 2 coats,then finished off the lashes with this and it worked okay.

I also have asian eyes,so my eyelashes are thin,curve-less,straight and small.
This didnt do good for me unless it was used with Lash Blast then it worked good.

If you already have curled,long thick lashes then this will probably work for you!

UPDATE: Okay, so I use this on my bottom lashes and to coat as a second coat. My eyelashes lok really nice and long IF I use this mascara with another one.

This mascara supposedly has won some awards or voted to be the best mascara of some year, but a lot of people still don't like it. The formula is very watery, which makes lashes droop. It clumps, but the watery formulas makes it so the clumps are easily brushed out. I find that it lengthens pretty well...
Adding all of those factors together, I came up with the conclusion that this is not a great mascara for upper lashes, but fantastic for bottom lashes, especially with its tiny brush! This brush can get the hard-to-apply areas on bottom lashes and you can really spend time trying to get definition on each lash because it does not dry up that quickly. Moreover, since the formula makes lashes droop, this is actually a benefit to bottom lashes because it makes them fan out.
So if you don't mind using two different mascaras for your eyes, then you should try using this for your bottom lashes.

This mascara is so over hyped.


The results I achieved from Maybelline's Great Lash Mascara were so disappointing that it practically left me speechless. Clumping, eye irritation, you name it! This mascara is by far the worst I have every applied to my lashes.


Don't waste your money on this product. Period.

Mascara has really come a long way since Great Lash, especially the applicators. I personally think that this product, while cheap, is a waste of money. It clumps and does not add length or definition to my lashes, I much prefer products like Givenchy Phenomen'Eyes Mascara, my new fav.

This mascara is being hyped up! It claims to give great lashes, but it's crap! I really dislike this mascara.

It does NOTHING for my lashes, only apply a black layer over it. Meh.

Thank god I got it in the sale, still a waste of money though.

the maybelline great lash is soo pointless. this was the "it" mascara back when..OUT WITH THE VERY OLD AND IN WITH THE LENGTH AND VOLUME!!! i usually by the Diorshow which is like $22 bucks BUT since im on my new jobless budget lol i now buy from maybelline the intense xxl.
ladies this stuff WORKS!!!
it almost makes your lashes look fake...it gives the appearance of fake lashes(really long).
this is the microfiber mascara(2 step).
try it!!! unless u have the $22 bucks to get the diorshow!

The previous poster said its all about how you use the product. I would agree with her for most things, but this mascara is really useless. The mascara applicator is really small and thin. I think maybe if they had a better applicator for the mascara it would be better. But overall, it only darkened my lashes a bit. I wouldn't recommend anyone to buy this unless they have a spare mascara applicator. It added no lengths or volume for me. Just simply made my lashes noticible. I wouldn't buy it again, but the price is unbeatable.

I see a lot of ppl dont like this product. But I have to say I think its all a matter of what your looking for out of it and how you use it. In my case I was looking for nothing in particular. But I must say it adds good length, doesnt do much for volume. The way I used it was sweeping my eyelashes to the side with it, which made a sexy extended cat eyed look. It held up great. I was easy to take off. So this may mean it easily drains with water, but I dont like waterproof due to the ability to smudge. When I go back to the look I will buy it again and again, right now I am more into volume and its unfair to compare it against that.
