I bought this originally as a brow gel to replace my prohibitively expensive Anastasia clear brow gel. As a brow gel, this is not great especially compared with the Anastasia. It basically had no hold. With the higher end brow gel, my brows stayed in in place all day, whatever position I brushed them into. With the Maybelline, maybe it gives a bit of hold but really not much. HOWEVER the reason I gave this mascara 4 lippies is that I have begun using it for its intended purpose, as a mascara, and for that, I really like it. I actually don't wear mascara because - it's impossible not to make this sound like a humble brag - my eyelashes are pretty long and thick already. When I wear mascara it necessarily makes my makeup look very dramatic and unnatural, too much for my day to day. However, I do curl my eyelashes, and the thing I miss about mascara is that it helps keep that curl stay in place. So I started using the clear Great Lash on my eyelashes prior to curling (wait for it to dry before curling because it's pretty wet), and lo and behold, my eyelash curl is much more resilient while still looking natural. It maybe adds a bit of volume, but not much, and no color. This mascara also avoids that white flake issue that clear mascaras can at times be prone to. So I basically get the one niche benefit I want from mascara, and none of the other stuff I don't want. For the price, yes I'd repurchase.
