I absolutely swear by great lash to give me spidery lashes - touted as the make-up artists mascara of choice, it really is good value and a great product. Distinctive pink and green packaging, no nonsense, no gimmicks medium brush and a great consistency mascara that stays put all day.

Where Great Lash succeeds is in being simple. It has no trendy selling points besides its reputation for being the best in the buisness. In comes in a few natural shades, I like dramatic lashes so I use very black and layer on a couple of coats on lashes that have been curled previously. It doesn't flake, it doesn't smudge and many times after a night out I've woken up the following morning still wearing my mascara and the damage hasn't been too bad!

Great Lash doesn't clog but you should still comb your lashes in between coats. The brush is small enough to use on your lower lashes too, and it lasts quite a while because they actually DO fill the genourously sized tube full. Do bear in mind make-up experts suggest changing mascara every 3 months because it gets full of bacteria - and after a while if you're using an old tube of great lash, it will start to flake and your eyes will begin to itch from the use, trust me!

I bought this mascara, quite frankly, because I didn't know any better. I was just trying to find the "right" products, and this one definitely isn't one of them! I put it on and it clumped right away, and it looked really dark and fake on me (I'm going for the whole "natural" look when I put on makeup, which is getting harder and harder to do!!). However, it is really waterproof, which makes it hard to take off. Also, it smudged big-time. I was wearing it one day, took a nap, and when I woke up, found it was not only all over my eyes but on my pillowcase as well! Thumbs-down.

This mascara ia smazing for a low end product. Its this consistency, allows you to apply as much as you desire without clumping, and it really does seperate the lashes. Does not give a dramatic effect, so great for everyday use. The waterproof variety really does stay on all day. Have used this product for years, and will continue to.

Its great for a water proof mascara. (although instead of "running" off in the water..it slowly "flakes" off.) But I like it. Although, I have to say that it doesn't lengthen and separate lashes like some mascaras do. But I've heard continual raves about how lengthening this stuff is..but it didn't quite lengthen and separate for me like I thought it might. But I probably will buy another one when I run out of my current Great Lash WaterProof mascara!

This is what I use now. I do like the waterproof because it is a little bit thicker than the original. This mascara doesn't budge and stays on forever but I did have a problem with it flaking. One thing I really loved about this product is that after I've curled my stick-straight lashes and apply this it holds the curl exceptionally well. That way I don't have to curl my lashes over and over again, apply more mascara, recurl lashes...etc--->major clumps! I find that mascara goes on thicker when I've had it for a while but to speed up that process I "pump" the mascara. The magazines say this is a no-no (bacteria) but I haven't had any problems...whatever works for me, right? hehe I wear 2-3 coats of this which makes it so hard to take off. Also my lashes are really stiff when I wear this. I have a coupon for Maybelline mascara and think I'll try Illegal Lengths...so I'll have that updated soon.
Update: I'm really impressed with the Illegal Lengths and will be using this instead of the Great Wear.

This product never smudges or smears. It defines my lashes really well and wears for a long time.

I'm glad i waited a while to rate this product. The first time i wore it, i hated it! i got the one with the curved brush. I felt it did nothing for my lashes and it was so hard to remove (i usually use Dove soap to remove my makeup). But then, i wore it to the mall and when i was trying out some clothes, i looked in the mirror and noticed that my lashes WERE well defined. They looked so pretty! lol. I guess i just had some pretty bad lighting at home or something. When i got home, i remembered my sister's tip to remove waterproof makeup.. I just used baby oil and in a swipe or two my mascara was off! Will probably buy the straight brush kind next time though, just to see what the difference is.

Update: Swithced to Volum' express waterproof which defines, AND can be easily removed with my beloved Dove soap.
