Maybelline Great Lash Mascara Review

Maybelline Great Lash Mascara Review
Maybelline Great Lash Mascara Review
 I am one of these girls who finds a perfect mascara and never changes it for any others. I have been using Benefit They're Real mascara for a good year now and I figured since so many people are reviewing other mascaras it is about time I end this relationship and find another perfect mascara!

Maybelline great lash mascara gets mentioned so so much in the blogging world so i decided to pick it up and see what the fuss is all about. I am sure this mascara has been out for a fair few years or so if I am not mistaken? but it seems as though everyone is digging it out of there makeup stash again and wearing it.


I love the packaging its very neon and summery! just the packaging alone excites me to wear this mascara..is that weird? Anyways packaging to one side this mascara has lived up to its expectations in my opinion. I was a little weary because of how thin the brush actually was but I found the brush more useful being stick thin. It does exactly what I want from a mascara which is: no smudging, volume, no clumps and looks natural but buildable.


 I do really like this mascara but I still sometimes go back to my They're Real at times so maybe it hasn't totally blew me away.

It is a good drugstore mascara I have to admit and it does exactly what I wanted from it. My lashes always look very natural but have volume at the same time which is great for day time wear!

Pros:

Doesn't smudge
Adds volume
No clumps
Natural but buildable
Pretty packaging

Cons:

Didn't win me over enough to become an everyday staple

Overall I really enjoy using this mascara, it will be a good alternative when I am getting a little bored of my They're Real. But, it hasn't won me over enough to wear every single day.


Have you tried Great Lash mascara?

  2. I have this but I find that it doesn't do much in volumising my lashes. I tend to just use it for bottom lashes since it's good at picking up the little ones. x

  4. The mascara I use is actually from my mother and she bought it from Avon and I like the effect my eyelashes get, they seem a lot bigger.

  5. I've been looking for a mascara that doesn't smudge but isn't necessarily waterproof as that's a bugger to get off, so this sounds awesome!

  6. I'm not the biggest fan of this mascara, it just clumps my lashes together and makes them look awful!! I do like the wand though!

  8. I tried this one a few years back and, kind of like you, I thought it was good but didn't blow me away, ya know? I moved on to other one but my sister still likes this one :) she has naturally very long full lashes though and just need a light coat, whereas I like a bit more, so atm am really liking the Too Faced ones! Kind of interested in the CLEAR maybelline one though... hear it can be good for brows!

  9. I've been debating on whether or not to pick this up for a while now as all of the reviews I've read are very mixed. It would look pretty on my dressing table nonetheless, haha!

  13. I do love this mascara as it's very reliable. I use it when I just want to give my eyes a little definition, and I also use it a lot on my lower lashes.
