Gotta Love: Maybelline Great Lash Mascara

Maybelline Great Lash Mascara - Very Black - gotta love, review

Heya! 🙂

Today, I have another ‘Gotta Love’ post for you! I really like writing these posts and I feel like I don’t do them enough. So here’s another one! * yaaaay *

The product that I’ll be presenting to you is the Great Lash Mascara by Maybelline. Now, apparently, this is a classic, which I didn’t know. *gasp* I haven’t really seen or heard a lot about it and when I saw it in store I thought it looked way too ‘primitive’.

I remember one day, a friend of mine appeared in school and her lashes looked incredible! When I asked her which mascara she used, I honestly expected to hear ‘Better Than Sex’ or ‘Roller Lash’. Needless to say that I was more than surprised when she showed me the tiny Great Lash.

The brush is made of fibers and it’s so small, which I love. It’s super easy to apply and the size helps with ‘lash separation’.

I do recommend ‘wiping’ it before usage. (at the ‘walls’ of the tube) Just to make sure it won’t clump your lashes and that you won’t get way too much product on.

The formula is great, honestly, I don’t think there was a day where it smudged underneath my eyes! Woo!

The effect: Now, if you’re looking for something volumizing, lengthening and dramatic, this mascara may not be for you. You can achieve a very pretty, natural look with it -‘your eye(lashe)s but better’. It’s a great ‘base mascara’, though, and that’s what I usually do – I layer another mascara on top. 🙂

Formula? 8/10

Brush? 9/10

Effect? – Natural; 10/10

I really like the effect – it’s a phenomenal everyday mascara! Just great! (heh, heh, ba-dum-tsss)

Packaging? 10/10

I just love the fact that the tube’s so small – it fits everywhere!

Lasting? 9/10

From my experience, it lasts a long time. It never smudged, not even once! So I’m pretty happy with that. 🙂

Clumpy-ness? 8/10

It can be a bit clumpy if you don’t wipe excess product off.

Overall? 8/10

    Brilliant review Dora!!! Really thorough and the photos are beautiful huni 🙂 I have to say though I’ve tried this mascara a few times and unfortunately it’s done nothing at all for my lashes 😦 Very frustrating as it seems to be a staple for others!! Awesome post – glad it worked out for you lovely ❤ Karen xo

      Thank you so much, Karen!
      Oh, that’s unfortunate! 😦 Yeah, I’ve heard either people saying it’s incredible or that it doesn’t work. It was so scary, like there was no middle ground haha!
      But hey, at least you know what doesn’t work, which is also important. 😀

      Thanks again! 🙂 ❤

  2. I must first compliment you on your amazing photography skills! LOVE the tea cups and how you played with the illusion of color to complement the packaging of the lipstick. You genius you haha 😉 I have tried this mascara and I completely agree with you on the overall effect; makes a great everyday mascara without having to spend an arm and leg. Great review lovely!
