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. 🙂
(There’s a clear version of it, as well!)
Two coats + another mascara:
Effect? – Natural; 10/10
I really like the effect – it’s a phenomenal everyday mascara! Just great! (heh, heh, ba-dum-tsss)
I just love the fact that the tube’s so small – it fits everywhere!
From my experience, it lasts a long time. It never smudged, not even once! So I’m pretty happy with that. 🙂
It can be a bit clumpy if you don’t wipe excess product off.
