Maybelline Great Lash Mascara Review

February 7, 2006

Starting a series of mascara reviews as requested. As you will see, most of them are from drugstore brands. Mascaras need to be replaced once every 2-3 months. So why spend $20+ on a high end brand when you can spend only $6-7 on a drugstore one?

Raved by makeup artists all over the world and always listed as one of the best mascaras around, the Great Lash Mascara has a lash-doubling formula that conditions as it thickens.

I had this in Very Black and it did darken my lashes a lot without clumping. However, there was also nothing “great” about it. I did not notice any significant lengthening nor thickening on my short, skimpy Asian lashes at all. If you are looking for something more dramatic, skip this one.

    I was always reluctant to purchase mascara over 20$ too.. so thanks so much for the review 🙂 so many great choices with affordable prices!
