Review: Maybelline Great Lash Mascara

I picked up Maybelline’s Great Lash mascara in Very Black while it was on clearance for $1.67 at Target. I had a $1.00 off manufacturer coupon so I only paid 67 cents for this. I figured I’d give it a shot since I’ve got a minor obsession with mascaras going on at the moment. I figured worst case scenario if I don’t like it, it only cost me 67 cents.

I used this product and I like it in some aspects, but dislike it in others. But what I will say is this is definitely not a mascara that you want to apply if you are in a hurry or don’t like waiting for your mascara to dry before doing anything else with your makeup. The reason I say this is because this products formula is VERY wet, it goes on wet and stays wet until it sets. I have naturally long curly top lashes and I opened my eye too quickly (thinking it would set like most normal mascaras) but not this one! It left nice black smudges on my eyelids. I like the applicator, but then I also don’t like the applicator – but I think the applicator works since the formula is so runny.

Overall I would suggest this product to someone who likes wetter formulations when it comes to mascara – but other than that I wouldn’t recommend this to anyone to purchase. In my honest opinion – this is give or take product for me. I would use it if I HAD to or if it was what was in front of me and I didn’t want to look for my other mascara, but it’s not something I would recommend anyone to run out and pick up. I give it 2 stars.

• Long lasting wear
• Keeps your lashes looking very natural – just darker
• Does not flake
• Not thick feeling on the lashes (to touch)
• Removes easily with a simple makeup removing wipe
• Applicator tip is smaller so it allows for a more precise application.

• Formula is VERY liquidy
• Have to wait for this to dry before doing anything (even blinking)
• Easily smudgable while wet (I had to slide a tissue under my lower lash line since the product on my lower lash line would touch my face)
• (As mentioned a Pro above, but also a con) The applicator is smaller so it takes more swipes than a normal mascara applicator to get your lashes coated.

Have you tried this product? If so, what were your thoughts?
