Use to use this when I was younger and looked thru some pictures the other day, and boy did my lashes look clumpy and yucky! Would never re purchase!

I know there's a lot of mixed reviews on this stuff, so it works for some and not for others. I've been trying to find my HG mascara for forever and always seem to just come right back to this one and I've been using it off and on for at least 15 years.

I already have really long lashes that are about medium density (not too thick and not too thin). The wand on this thing is small, but perfect for me. I don't end up poking myself in the eye and destroying my entire makeup job having to wipe off what I just messed up. I've tried the higher end mascaras and of all the mascaras and all their claims, this one is the only tried and true one I've found. Just curl my lashes, apply one coat (too many coats of any mascara can make them clumpy) and I'm good to go!

Stay away from this. Like what everyone else says, this is a waste of your money. Clumps and does NOTHING for your lashes.

Horrible mascara. Like everyone else says, doesn't lengthen or thicken. Still sitting in my drawer waiting to be thrown away.

Don't understand the hype about this product. Clumps, does not even lengthen or thicken my lashes. #1 mascara? youve got to be kidding me. worst mascara ive tried ever. doesnt do anything for my lashes except clump them. and definitely expect smudges after five minutes or so. horrible and a waste of five dollars.

I tried to like this stuff...really I did. I heard all about how "even the celebrities" love this over the countless high end products that they could obviously afford, so I tried to like it because I figured in their world of makeup artists and product at their fingertips, it HAD to be good. It's not. It's messy and no matter HOW I try, I cannot keep from getting this all over the place. It also takes forever to dry, so if I put it on, I cannot open my eyes for several minutes or it will end up my eyelashes. The waterproof is TOO difficult to get off, even with a good makeup remover and the non-waterproof makes me look like my daughter's 14-year-old emo friends by the end of the day. Not a good look. Not a good product.

Plain and simple this product sucks. I cant understand how this works for anyone. I used it once and threw it out. Makes lashes goopy and stuck together and the formula doesn't curl at all making my naturally thick and curly lashes sparse and stick straight. Steer clear, run the other way!!!

This was great when I was 13. Now that I am older, I realize how crappy this product is. Clumps like no other upon application. Drying on the lashes, mascara is very noticeable. If I remember correctly, it doesn't flake under the eyes. I was using this at the same time as I used Maybelline's Colossal Mascara (which was absolutely horrid), so I don't quite remember if my mascara only flaked with Colossal or when I had either Colossal or Great Lash on.

Either way, there are MUCH BETTER mascaras out there. Please please please try something with great reviews. MUA is your friend!

I must agree with some of the reviews that this product is a bit wet. However, I still find this mascara decent at the least given the price. It isn't the greatest mascara ever, but it does a good job especially to wear everyday. It took three separate tries for me to really appreciate this mascara, but now I must say I really like it. It doesn't clump my lashes or make them look really thin like some mascaras do. One of my complaints would be that this mascara doesn't give your lashes a curl, but then again that's what I use a eye lash curler for I guess. Be careful when applying it because it tends to smudge everywhere since the formula is a bit more wet than other mascaras. I think that people should give this mascara a try but with realistic expectations.
