Well, i thought HEY! since i just *painfully* tried this product not 3 minutes ago, i should review it.
so i had this in my backup makeup stash as a *just in case* product. and i wasnt really planniing on using it, but after visiting this reveiw page earlyer i though i should.
so first off, i put it on and it look okay, kinda thick, and it didnt separate my lashes. it was also VERY WET. causing it to get in my eye, BURNING like crazy. so i shut my eyes, and i knew that was a mistake, i opened them and i hage these huge black racoon mascara rings around my eyes. so blindly i stumbled around my counter looking for my makeup remover so i could get that crap off my face.
now with sore red eyes, im reporting to you, If you clumsy, this product is NOT for you.

Crap. Total crap. I just DON'T understand how this crap can still be available for sale. I was over at a friend's place and forgot my usual mascara (L'Oreal Voluminous) so I hit up the drug store near her place. I figured the price was right, so why not? Bad idea.... first of all, this took forever to dry. Way too wet. I also couldn't get ANY volume whatsoever. My lashes are naturally long, so length wasn't a problem, but about an hour after application, there were greyish black shadows stretching from my lids to my eyebrows.... no joke. I tried to wipe them off only to have them re-appear a short time later. By this time though, I had wiped off almost all of my eye shadow off in the process. No wonder girls in high school use this stuff... they don't know any better.

Wow. I guess my sister and I are two of the few people who like Great Lash. It looks gorgeous on her. She used the curved brush and her results are: long, curled/lifted, defined with a bit of volume lashes. Rarely clumps. For me, my results are: long, curled/lifted, defined with nice volume lashes. Again, no clumps. I'm not sure how long she has been using Great Lash. It was my first mascara but then I strayed from it to other mascaras. After being fed up with false promises, I return to my old friend. This is the best I've tried. It gives you beautiful lashes and rarely clumps. I think the "too wet" problem is only when you first use the mascara or when you haven't used it in a while. That's what happens with me. My first tube was too wet the first time and then I stole my mom's (she never uses it) and it was too wet when I applied it the first time. But now, it's perfect with gorgeous lashes. My sister never has the "too wet" problem, either. One of my favorite things about this mascara is that you can use it for a natural or dramatic look. Overall, I love this mascara and will never leave it again.
*EDIT:* Squirtle78 "No wonder girls in high school use this stuff... they don't know any better." First off, I'm a dancer and have been wearing makeup since I was 3. I'm pretty sure that I've learned what's a good mascara and what isn't. And my sister is 25 so I'm pretty sure that she knows, too. People shouldn't stereotype. With that said, this is a valid review. I hope my review helps someone :)

I am so glad to read all these reviews and confirm that this is nothing great! Every magazine swears this is the best mascara and I just don't get it, but figured I miss be missing something. so I keep buying it for daily use, but it does clump. Also, it's down my face by the end of the day, but I figured that was just my eyes. I bought WP just to avoid that! But didn't stop the mess under my eyes AND...it's a nightmare to take off. I wash my face well, use a ton of eye makeup remover and there is still a good amount when I wake up n the morning. Time to try another one

I used this a long long time ago when I didn't know much about make up. All I know is that I tried it once and stopped using it. Enough said.

This is the control mascara in my on going mascara testing experiment (a lab that I have been running for the last 10 years.), not because it is anything spectacular, simply because it: a) was my first ever mascara, and has been re-purchased too many times to count b) is pretty decent in that it makes your lashes blacker and thicker than NOT wearing mascara, but nothing too WOW.
It is a cheap staple product that does the job it claims to do with no big hype or false promises.

Oh, Great Lash...I used you in high school because I just didn't know any better. I really think this is the worst mascara on the market. As others have said, it's watery, it smudges, it clumps. It doesn't do what a great mascara should do- lengthen and/or volumize. The pretty packaging is the only redeeming quality of this mascara. If you want to try a great drugstore mascara, I highly recommend Cover Girl Lash Blast in the big orange tube. I would never buy Maybelline Great Lash mascara.

I think Great Lash spells "o-v-e-r-r-a-t-e-d". It is the best advertised product of all times.
It is just a terribly watery mess and feels more like "crushed charcoal added some water" than mascara. It has a terrible brush that does nothing but putting more mascara on my lids than my lashes. And it has no consistency - I got different lashes in each application... most of the times, even my two set of lashes looked different than each other. And I won't mention the terrible smudging, because it gives me nightmares.
Such a crap! Went directly to the trash.
I wonder, how Maybelline dares to call it "America's #1 Mascara.", and how dare all the magazine editors rave on it so consistantly.

Panda eyes doesn't even describe how my face looks after a few hours wearing this stuff.
I heard great reviews about it on youtube so bought it...on first application my lashes looked really nice - not clumpy and lenghtened.
I was impressed and went off to work thinking I was gods gift.
3 hours later I headed to the bathrooms and peered in the mirror at the hot mess that was my face. I will never forgive this mascara for making me look like I'd been weeping!
Not recommended by this girlie. Oh no!

Out of all the drugstore mascaras I've bought, this one was the worst for me. It makes my lashes look clumpy and it's just not he mascara for me. I love the cute mascara bottle, with the green and the pink but other than that.. there's nothing special about this mascara.
UPDATE: I actually quite like this mascara now. The key is to use a metal lash comb to get rid of the gross clumps. My lashes are much longer and fuller using this than the covergirl lash exact one. The consistancy is hard to work with at first but once you're use to it, this mascara isn't bad at all. My lashes use to droop immediately after I put this on but ever since I switched to the Shu Uemura eyelash curler, my curl has definitely stayed put! Giving this 3 more lippies. :) I have two of these since I get them for a 2-for-1 deal!
