This mascara is one of my favorites because for the price you are paying ($4-$6 depending where you get it), it is really amazing. I love Maybelline mascaras. I started using them when I saw Great Lash marked as the best mascara in a bunch of magazines a few years ago. I honestly do love Great Lash. Its a great formula that gives you both length and volume, and the formula doesn't get dry and clumpy over time which is really important to me because I want to be able to use most of the product. One thing I was missing was the silicone brush so that my eyelashes wouldn't clump as much during application, because I had to be pretty careful with the bristle brush. This brush is perfect. Its smaller than CoverGirl's Last Blast silicone applicator brush, and has a really unique shape that contours to your lashes. I love it because it's really easy to get the little lashes in the corners of the eyes and the lashes on the bottom lash line.I would totally buy it again, its a great buy and I continue to love Maybelline for drugstore makeup!

I think the success of drugstore mascara depends 30% on the actual mascara and 70% on the brush. That said, Lots of Lashes' downfall can probably be blamed on the silicone brush. I'm not a fan of this silicone brush trend, I think bristle brush are more effective and produce more flattering looks. It must have been a moment of weakness when I reached for the cute, heart-shaped brush. The brush made my lashes look clumpy and spidery and the application took longer than usual because the brush was so small. Not ideal for getting ready in the morning. Great Lash seems to have a cult following so this was a big disappointment. I'm going to toss it and pick up a tube of Lash Stiletto or CoverGirl Professional.

My lashes are straight and I use a curler before any mascara. With that said, this mascara takes out my curl and gives them that straight spidery look. The brush is hard to work with as well. It was only about 4 bucks, oh well.

Love this mascara, I swear it's the drugstore version of Lancome's Doll Eyes mascara same brush etc. I have both. I've learned it's best to apply these types of mascaras with the narrowest part of the wand closest to the inner corner of the eye. This gives you more volume on the outter corners giving you a cat eyed effect.
This can be tricky since you have to apply it in a opposite postition of the first eye you've applied to, hope that makes sense!
I am a mascara junkie so can't say I will repurchase but it is tube use worthy, lol.

The best mascara I have used yet. The rubber wand is great. You can get EVERY single lash. Best one to get your little lashes in the corners of your eyes. I use it in the blackest black. Never did flake even after applying another coat later on in the day if I freshened up to go out that night! Just under $5.00! & Its a cute bottle! It really does give you lots of lashes ! I'd give it a 10 !

At face value this mascara is great. Cheap, with nice packaging and an adorable rubber wand, it looks really good. When you first apply it, it really lengthens and thickens your lashes, and you can get even the lashes closest to the tear duct. However, this product flakes REALLY badly. If you even rub your eyes, you end up with flakes all over. Really nice packaging, sucky formula.

I love this stuff! I paid just under 5 dollars for it and wasn't too worried if it didn't work. I'm happy to say this is my favorite Mascara right now! No clumps, great volume and I only need one coat ! No flakes and washes off easily! Going to buy again!

This is my first time using this mascara. I've had it on for about 3 hours. So far, I am loving this mascara. No flakes yet! I hated the original Great Lash, but was sucked into the heart shaped brush and the lots of lashes statement. I tried this on my mom, and it looked great! I couldn't wait to try it myself! I applied all my make-up and prepared to apply my mascara. First off, the thick, fat end of the brush is great! It really took my lashes on the end to a whole new level. Made them super fanned out! Which, with most mascaras they don't fan too much. The smaller part gets my inner corner lashes and does the same thing! I have super fanned out lashes, and I feel pretty glamourous! I did experience clumping. But, I'm not going to write this mascara off yet. Because I probably could have wiped off some excess! But, I like it so far. The brush is super small, and works great! The formula is a bit wet, but I could always use another formula, or even do super light coats. I think this mascara is going to be a big hit with me. I love my lashes so far. They almost look fake. Maybe if I would have wiped off excess, they would totally fake! But they are long and lucious. I am pleased. And at walgreens, buy one get one 50% off, I couldn't resist. I will do an update in a few days after wear and a few new tricks! I recommend this product, especially if you have short, sparse, or thin lashes.
Since then, I have continued using this mascara. I am still fairly pleased with this! I don't LOVE it. But, it is a great mascara! It does still clump a bit, even with removed excess, but it makes my lashes SO long and fans them out like nothing else. I usually use a seperate mascara underneath, let it dry just a bit, then go over it with this Lots of Lashes. I like the false lash length it gives, but the volume isn't great, and it does clump, and takes forever to dry. Overall, I do like it. And I would probably buy again!

If this brush came with the "Big" formula mascara, I bet it'd be fantastic. The brush itself is pretty darn good. Granted, it takes me much longer to apply my mascara with this brush than with a standard one, but the trade off is that I can get every single lash. It takes some work though. Unfortunately, the mascara's formula is that of regular Great Lash, which I don't think is so great. It tends to clump on me, and just seems heavy on my lashes. It's cheap though, and a lot of people do love regular GL. If you're a fan of it, I'd recommend checking this out for the brush.

Wow - great stuff. I almost didn't try it as I absolutely hated the original, which I tried several times over the years. It always ended up completely smeared and flaked under my eyes.
This one, however, goes on easily, defines my lashes, has true black color, holds the curl and stays on! That's huge for me as most mascaras seem to flake at least somewhat by the end of the day. I love the wand and the price. My other favorite is Bare Escentuals Flawless Definition, but I just can't afford it on a regular basis. Yay for Maybelline!
I have to edit after all - not nearly as great as my Flawless Def. Does flake by end of day and doesn't go on as neatly as I'd like. Better than the original, but down to 3 lippies.

omg...the wand/brush is incredible! the cone-shaped brush's bristles which are made of elastomer (rubber?) GRAB and SEPARATE each lash from the base right to the tip. the brush is super small and because of the cone shape, the bristles are much smaller at the end allowing you to coat the shorter lashes with ease and control. unlike the handle on the covergirl lash blast mascara which is huge and designed in a way that makes it difficult to grip and which constantly slips out of your grasp, the handle on this maybelline lots of lashes is much more ergonomically designed and user friendly. BUT...what i love most about this product is that it comes with a separate cap. So, what i do is unscrew the cap, dip the wand into the tube to get some product and apply mascara to the lashes of both eyes, then i use the CAP to re-seal the mascara. i then completely rinse the mascara off the rubber brush and allow it to dry. therefore, i never double dip and the brush never has caked on product which means that application is always incredible! i absolutely love this brush!!!

- The packaging is super cute! A heart-shaped brush? Yes, please!
- The aforementioned brush has a TON of bristles in a shape that's really more conical than "heart-shaped". It's really good at grabbing each and every lash.
- The formula is thick, which works well with my lashes.
- This formula lasts all day!
- The brush is a bit small, but the degree to which that's an issue is up to you.
As much as I personally love this mascara, I realize that it's probably not going to work for everyone. I happen to like thick formulas and plastic brushes. If you don't, then this definitely isn't the mascara for you.
That said, this mascara is a HUGE improvement over the original Great Lash. The original had a terrible brush that could not separate worth jack, resulting in ugly, clumpy lashes. The "great little grabber" brush is just what this thick formula needed. This brush gets between every single lash and offers both great separation and volume. True, it might not reach all the way across your eye in one swoop, but I personally don't mind going section-by-section to make sure that every lash looks good. My lashes look fantastic after just one coat, and two coats is a good amount for parties, so this mascara works for both everyday wear and special events.
The bottom line: If you like thick mascaras and/or are looking for a brush that gives good separation, definitely give Great Lash: Lots of Lashes a try.

I was so excited to see that Maybelline Great Lash had come out with a plastic, heart-shaped wand, and even more excited that it was only about four dollars at my Walmart. I already love my Great Lash and Great Lash Big mascaras, and I was hoping this mascara would be just as good, if not better. First off all, the formula was very thick and wet, making my lashes clump and droop. There was also a lot of excess, which I did wipe off. Then there was that wand. I thought it was going to give me, well, lots of lashes. Wrong. I used it just about every way I that I knew, including ones I've picked up from make up artists, and other people on thIs website. It just didn't seem to work for me. I can't really say anything about smudging or flaking, because right after I put it on, I took it off. I don't usually write reviews, but I hated this so much I just felt the need to. Based on my experience, they should rename this mascara Lots of Clumps or Loss of Lashes, because it clumped so dang much and it made me look like I had LESS lashes. It's probably just as bad as L'Oreal Telescopic, which I didn't think was possible. Going right back to the store ASAP.

I've got to admit, this is pretty good stuff, I really like the technique of the brush, it gets all of my lashes and it gives my lashes a good amount of volume and there lifted up just right, I already have curled long lashes I like them more defined w/ a bold black added to them and this stuff does it for me... At the cheap price why not give it a try, u can't knock it till you have tried it!!! I will buy again.

I was skeptical since I'd heard less-than-stellar things about the original, but this is a great mascara! Great coverage, no clumps. The only imaginable drawback is that the wand's design makes it slightly awkward to apply with your non-dominant hand. I am pretty ambidextrous so I don't have that problem.

The "heart-shaped" brush was amazing. I felt like it and coated every lash.
the bigness at the base got the longer middle lashes, and the smaller part got my smaller lashes on the insides of my lashes. The only problem is that (I got the non-waterproof kind) it does not hold a curl. I'm asian and I have those stick straight lashes that actually go down, with no curl. My lashes are thick, but sparse, and to curl them, I have to apply a clear base coat of mascara, then curl, then mascara, then curl, then mascara (which is torture to those poor lashes! Don't try this at home!) and after curling all of the curl is gone, the consistency was so thick and wet, they just fell and drooped.
However, if you have already naturally curly eyelashes, or you don't really need a curl, this is one of the best mascaras. It's super buildable, and doesn't smear. It's great, but when you start at the base of the lashes, and swoop outwards, it sort of tickle/lightly scratches the upper water line.
UPDATE: Okay, I don't know why I had only given this 3 lippies. I have stopped curling my lashes so extrememly because I have been breaking them off leave it either to my new muscles from workin gout in the winter (not) or the eyelash curler but I have taken a temporary hiatus from the retched torture machine. This mascara is actually really great. It doesn't completely dry, but isn't completely wet when layering and actually seemed to add a slight curl to my eyelashes with no curling. Well done. IMPORTANT: If you notice, most mascaras only come with about 0.27 ounces of mascara, but this version comes with 0.34 which is why it lasts so long! In addition, their formula with a curved brush comes with 0.44 oz which will last almost FOREVER.

It's not a bad mascara. I have short, thin lashes, and this mascara gives me enough volume and decent length.
To all those who are complaining about this mascara being clumpy -- have you tried to wipe off the excess mascara? That's what I do, and I hardly get clumps.
Just try it. I got it for $3.54 or something like that from Target.

PLEASE READ THE NOVEL ALL THE WAY THROUGH!! THANKS.
When I was just starting out with make-up, I only used eye liner and mascara. I used (more specifically) Maybelline's Great Lash mascara "Curling" I WAS IN LOVE!! Once I curled my lashes and took my time applying on this mascara MY LASHES LOOKED LIKE FALSES!! Whoa right!?
However, it dried out fast (even with twist method*) and I was ready to try something new. As I got older I tried a bunch of different types, styles, and brands. (I was pretty loyal to Cover Girl myself)
Doing this I found that even though Great Lash is on the cheaper side (great for starting out) it was not even top 5 fav's list anymore.
SO when I heard about the Great Lash - Lots of lashes I was super excited.
I have been looking for a nice (more cheaper alternative) mascara that will give me the same effect that Lash Blast did but blacker. No such luck.
Great Lash - Lots of lashes is SUCH a disappointment!!
1.) The brush was hard to work with.
2.) The formula was thick and heavy (causing my lashes to droop)
3.) I had to play with my eye lash curler ALOT before "fixing" the problem.
4.) AND it flakes and sags throughout the day.
I remember now why I moved on.
I applied one to two coats on my lashes around 7AM this morning and it's now close to 2PM and the results have been in one word: HORRIBLE!!
If this brand (I have NOTHING against the brand FYI) works for you then that's great :) Awesome even. Everyone's opinion is different (not one person in the world is alike perfectly)
Have any drug store brand mascara you'd recommend to a girl looking for fun, flirty, friendly and full lashes?
The Twist Method:
When you pump your mascara wand into the tube of your mascara your actually pushing air and bacteria into the formula causing it to dry out alot sooner. This can even give you pink eye, stye, and other irritating feelings in and around your eye.
This being said: Not only get a new fresh mascara every two months (cheap, drug store brands are better and work better anyway...so dont waste your $) but also, while your applying your mascara, twist the wand in and out of the tube.
DO NOT PUMP YOUR MASCARA WAND!!

This mascara is awful. It did not do a thing for my lashes just clumped them together,and made them spidery. Threw it out.
Age: 36-43 Skin: Combination Hair: Brown Eyes: Hazel
I bought this mascara based on reviews from this site and it's awful!! True, it does not clump and you can build on it to a degree, so spider lashes. But...within ten minutes flat this stuff was flaking off down to my chin practically! It's too bad because otherwise it wasn't bad stuff, but due to the extreme flaking I will be throwing it in the trash.
