This was the first mascara I ever bought, when I got old enough to be allowed to use makeup...and even then, without having tried any other product, any prior experience I knew it *SUCKED.*
I only bought it because I recognized it at once from all the magazines preteen guzzle down to prepare for the world of high school...Seventeen, Elle Girl, Vogue...WHY do all the makeup artists alwaysalwaysalways recommend this sh*tty product?
.
It's so WET that it will smudge inevitably. Maybe within a few minutes...maybe within the next hour or so..who knows? But after you use this mascara, that smudge is THERE & lurking in the bushes, ready to ambush you. Do NOT wear this on your wedding day...or any other day, if you're smart. It irritates eyes too.
.
A couple of makeup artists here said that it's easy to build up...but in my experience, just the opposite. The more you build it up, the more you will resemble the Bride of Chucky, those ugly dry, stiff. dolly lashes, ugh. I think it's cuz of the wand...the wand SUCKS.
.
That "natural look" this mascara is so famous for...whatever. If you're blonde, it'll make them black, that's about it, and that's all you can expect. Blackness.
.
Mine are already black as it is, so no thanks Maybelline...all you non-blonde people, avoid this pink-and-green tube like the plague. If you're curious to see what all the hype is about in the magazines, two words: Paid Advertising.
.
Apparently a tube of Great Lash Mascara is bought in the USA every (fill-in-the-blank) seconds, but I don't think that's a reflection of this mascara's effectiveness. It might reflect the gullibility of the American public, MAYBE, but it says nothing about the mascara.
.
Basically if you mix black food colouring into a tub of Vaseline & apply with your pinky, you will get the same effect that Great Lash has to offer, with none of the eye irritation. And the money that you saved on the mascara can go towards a worthy charity.
P.S. Okay, after that rant, I can think of some people who'd love this mascara. You know the gals blessed with dense, lovely lashes?
.
The ones who really wanna use mascara to give their look a nice "finish", but can't because it turns their lovely lashes into a caricature, all clumpy & too-voluminous & too-much-of-a-good-thing? Yeah, if you fall into that category, this mascara will be HG material for you. One swipe will give you what you want, subtle makeup, without overdoing it :)

I don't understand all the bad reviews for this mascara. I think people expect too much out of their beauty products these days, actually. If you want your mascara to curl your lashes for you and give you tons of length and volume, then you probably shouldn't buy this. If, however, you expect good color, no clumping, and no streaking/running (with the waterproof formula, that is), and simple no-nonsense packaging all at a good price, then this is a great mascara. I have very sensitive eyes, and this is one of the only mascaras I can actually use. If I want curled lashes, all I do is curl my lashes before applying - not really that difficult or time consuming. I don't expect or want really thick, dark lashes. If I did, I would wear falsies. I want a simple one-coat, waterproof mascara that gives my blond lashes some color. This product delivers that desire perfectly. I've been using it since I was 13, and I don't anticipate stopping any time soon.

This product is probably one of the worst mascara that I have purchased, it doesn't give you a boost or volume or length, it actually droops my lashes down.

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).
