This is ok. It makes lashes long but no volume and no curl, even if you curl before. It just drops.

This does nothing for my lashes except cause clump, clumpity, clump. Maybelline has other mascaras that work well for me but not this. However, my mom is in her 60's and this has been her HG for years....I have never seen her wear any other mascara and she says it is gentle for her eyes. Someone on here said she thinks she figured out why the MU Artists talk about it so much: because it is so cheap, after one use they can throw it away without wasting too much $$$. Not sure if that's why, butI do not understand the cult following on this.

I will never understand the obsession with this product. Maybelline makes some great mascaras but this is not one of them! I love big lashes and this just looks like I have nothing on. Maybe good for young girls starting out but definitely not for me....... HATE IT!

Ok, so the first time I bought this I really didn't like it, but I started layering my mascara. I start with a base coat of something cheap, then I use a good mascara to make my lashes look good. I think the brush on this is pretty crappy, but it is super cheap, so I use it as my base coat. If you have thin lashes, this stuff really doesn't help you out much at all the brush is one of the worst I have used. I agree with everyone else that says it is not very good, but it works for a cheap base coat.

I bought it when it just came out, tried it once and toss it right away! It is undoubtedly the worst mascara I've ever tried and I would suggest to everyone who's thinking of buying one - don't, just don't!

I am still confused as to why people think that this stuff is the "absolute best cult-mascara of all time" kind of thing. Its utterly crappy. Bottom line!

Everything about this mascara is average. The applicator isn't the best, but I've used worse. The mascara itself is good for the price, but I am looking for something that gives a bit more volume. I mainly just use it to hold the curl in my eyelashes. I would buy this again if I forgot my mascara while traveling or something.

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 :)
