Maybelline Great Lash Mascara

This is the very first mascara I ever bought, and every mascara since then has not compared. I have been using this mascara for years, and it is the VERY VERY BEST! Whenever my friends borrow my mascara they comment on how amazing it is, how it doesn't leave clumps, and how long it makes their lashes. I would recommend finding the wand that has cone shaped bristles, as I think it works the best. Really is the best out there!

Classic Lash

I was so young when this mascara was released. It might the of the oldest Maybeline product ever. When I went to the Clicks store for the 1st time with my own money to buy my 1st REAL makeup, this was the mascara I chose. I was all about natural looking makeup and needed a mascara I could wear to school and get away with. This was it and boy did I love it...love it still!

It seperates lashes perfectly so no clumpy mess or flaking at the end of the day. This is the perfect mascara for a natural look or for ladies who have sensitive eyes and can't wear heavy mascaras. It is also great for fine and short lashes like my own and won't get all over your lid like all the "WOW and OOH" effects brands do.

This is also a great product is you buy two different mascaras for your lids. I sometimes buy something that ads a lot of volume to my upper lashes and then I will use this one for my lower lashes to make sure they are seperated and natural looking.

This is one of those products that I will always reach for no matter how "old and outdated" it gets.

Maybelline Great Lash Blackest Black Mascara

The first time I used this mascara it was because we were heading out and my friend had handed me hers. It had a small pointed brush which could reach the insides and bottoms of my lashes quite nicely. I then purchased it for myself later but to my disappointment it did not have the same brush. I have naturally long lashes. It is so hard to apply this without having clumps or having way too much on my lashes, despite wiping off the excess on the brush before applying. I am not happy especially since this wasn't a cheap product. I will not be repurchasing, its just laying in my makeup bag.

Maybelline Great Lash Mascara

When I first used this Mascara I was amazed at how small the brush was. I think im just used to the modern day big brushes. Im actually glad that it is smaller than most mascaras because I like to use it to coat my bottom lashes and to get those top lashes hiding in the corner. I then go in with a bigger brush mascara and just make the lashes darker and thicker. I love the combination.

What I love most about this mascara is the container. When taking out the spoolie there is a nice tight suction type of passage that you pull the spoolie through and it just cleans the brush perfectly leaving on a perfect amount of product.

I highly recommend this product if you want a classic, easy to use mascara.

Maybelline Great Lash Mascara

This is definitely one of the best out there. When it comes to affordability and performance, no other can compete in my opinion. It is extremely black, provides volume and length and it stays on really well throughout the day. Best for everyday!

Maybelline Great Lash Mascara

Probably one of the oldest Maybelline products still on the market! All the Maybelline mascaras I have tried are fantastic.. but I still always seem to go back to this one. Its plastic brush and bristles keep every application clump free and the mascara doesn’t collect in the brush. All lashes are covered in just a few strokes. And gives the final affect of natural looking false lashes. And it really is waterproof! I have even swam whilst wearing it and it doesn’t run or smudge. Does take an oil based make up remover and a little more time to remove properly though.

Maybelline Great Lash Mascara

I've had this mascara for a while now and I can honestly say that it's given me such bang for my buck! It can constitute for all the eye make up you'd need for the day because of the drama it brings. I've gotten tonnes of compliments on my "eyelash extensions", which is great, as a student budgets doesn't really allow for extensions. The only criticism I could offer is that it does tend to clump after using it for a while. *do be sure to apply the second coat before the first coat dries, this will avoid any cracking as it is quite a heavy mascara.

Maybelline Great Lash Mascara

This is an oldie, but such a goodie! It coats each lash, provides length and volume and the formula is truly the blackest black. If you like drama - this should be your go-to mascara. Well worth the price and more.

One of my waterproof favourites

I love this Mascara, it goes on so smoothly and really lengthens and coats my lashes. I also love how it does not smudge, it really is a must for my makeup kit.

Maybelline Great Lash Mascara

The pink & green mascara!

This was the 1st Maybelline product i was introduced to by my sister way back in the days that's how i get to know about beauty brands.
My sister would buy this product from Clicks & during my teen stages i'd steal it when going for contests or performances at school together with all the other products she had then.

I remember the 1st time putting on a mascara I looked like i had shoe polish on my eyes all i knew then was i had to close my eyes and apply it & that i had to open my mouth as all ladies
still do even today when applying it :).

Maybelline products has been on the shelves years back & I'm surprised they've been in the beauty industry for 100 years meaning it's good quality brand that is easily accessible & affordable at the same time.

I ended up loving this mascara too, no smudges, soft brush & no eye irritation.

Top Notch Product

Maybelline is such a reliable brand in terms of Mascara and the one I always default to at the end of the day. The brush is a good size and I've never experienced any problems with the solution being chunky. The price is also very good and affordable.

Maybelline Great Lash Mascara

The brush is the best. No clumping or chunky bits of mascara to have to deal with. It's great for people who want to accentuate their lashes and still keep it quite natural.

By far my favourite mascara!

I absolutely ADORE this mascara! I have about 6 different mascaras but this is the one I always go back to! It applies well, not clumpy at all! I will repurchase it every time I need to throw my older one out.

Still a great mascara

I see I reviewed this product in 2010 so I thought I would review it again because I'm still using this product. This product just works for my fine lashes, it lengthens my lashes without clumping, it doesn't irrigate my eyes and although it lasts it washes off easily. What more could a girl ask for?
I found this product at Foschini the other day with a slightly smaller angled brush which I wanted to try out. The brush is great because its pointed at the end which allows you to go as close to your eyelash as possible which makes application easier. Its also small enough to coat your bottom lash without smudging.
You must try it!

Loving this mascara always and forever

Since I can remember, my mom used this mascara. And when I was old enough to use makeup, I also started using it. Back then the tube was a bit more bulky than now, with the same colourful label.
Well this mascara has spoiled me for so many other mascaras and I always end up comparing the mascara I am currently using with Great Lash. Needless to say I always go back to this one as it know just how to make my lashes to feel loved.
Happy 100 years Maybelline and may may I always be able to use this mascara!

Pretty Lashes

I received this mascara in one of my glam boxes when they were still around and I must say it was one of the best mascaras that I had ever used, the wand has a different shape to other mascaras which helps me get into the corners of my eyes where those little baby lashes are , it makes things a lot easier and my eyelashes feel nice and big with this mascara - I would definitely recommend it :)

Maybelline Madness

Most of the reviews on this mascara are kind of negative but I truly find this is one of the best mascaras around. I have been using it for a few years as my every day natural look mascara. It comes in brown and blackest black, the wand helps you achieve length but not to much volume, as I said before it is more of a daytime mascara and not really for a party/doe-eyed look. I do however struggle to remove the waterproof version off of my lashes so I tend to stick with the regular formula.

Very average

I probably am one of the few people that doesn't like this mascara!i find it very average and probably ok as a first start mascara! I seem to get mine free when i but at beauty fairs!i wouldn't actually buy it! But cos people rave about this mascara and for some it's considered a cult classic i thought i would try it! I have naturally long lashes! I use mascara as my loose powder normally ends up coating the tips and the tips if my lashes are somewhat sun bleached! This mascara could look awesome on my lashes as i only need colour depositing! Instead i found it thick and it clumped and gave me tarantula lashes!

Years of great eyelashes

I remember being in grade seven at a 'Slumber Party' birthday party and my friends' mother had this mascara as one of the beauty products and I fell in love. Honestly if I had to choose one drugstore mascara it would be this one. Such a winner!! I am however not the greatest fan of the waterproof one as I struggle to get it off but obviously some occasions call for this type of mascara :)
A BIG 10/10

A good starter mascara

Myself i prefer a bigger brush that delivers in one maybe two coats! I've used this when getting used to a mascara in my younger days! It has a small brush enabling you to get to bottom and side lashes with ease! I find my eyes very reactive to this particular one as my eyes itch and tear in seconds of application! Why this occurs I'm not sure as I've used other varieties under the maybelline umbrella without a problem!it enables build able cover to get volume and length! I feel the product splashes a bit and may need blotting when it comes out the container! All in all these days i know what i want in a mascara! This is not for me! As I've said probably a good starter mascara for someone new to mascara

Great Lash tried and trusted

Maybelline Great Lash was the very first mascara I've ever used. It's the tried and trusted formula and thousands of women love this brand. I bought it after I saw how beautiful my friend's lashes looked. I use the shade Blackest Black. It lasts FOREVER if you keep it in a cool, dry place. I have been wanting to use the 'lots of lashes' variant, but already have the two other mascaras in stock, so I should probably use those first. This is around R120 I think. But really worth it. Great formula, and wonderful for those who are new to the whole make-up game. :)

Maybelline Great Lash Mascara

This is my all-time favourite mascara! I love trying out new products but this is the mascara that I always end up going back to.
It is very affordable, wears well and makes lashes look full and long.
I have recently bought the version with the new brush and love it. It's easier to reach small corner lashes and so the effect is even more dramatic.

It is not a bad mascara but it does require more than one coat depending on preference. It has a small brush so you may apply easier to the corners and it does not clump.

This is one of my favorite mascaras, which is great because it doesn't break the budget! The formula is smooth which means no clumps (YAY!!!) and really black which creates thick, long lashes that lasts all day! This mascara amazes me because it is one of maybeline's firsts but still manages to WOW everyone in the beauty world!

Love this mascara! I received one in a Rubybox and I was really impressed. The product didn't dry out quickly like most mascara's and the brush really worked on each lash you have. From the short ones, to the longer ones closer to the edge of your lashes. Each lash is covered. It also doesnt start to clump after a few days of use.

There is a reason almost all the make up artists I know use Great Lash- the stuff is amazing! The brush is nice and small, allowing you to get the mascara onto every inch of your lashes and it doesn't clump! I love this mascara

My mom took me into clicks last week to treat me to a new mascara, I have previously been using the essences cheapies and I have loved them! Anyway she wanted to buy me a nice new one, she told me this particular mascara has been around since my mom was my age, that really amazed me, because so many ranges come and go, this volume mascara has stayed and stayed in the same tube and all!

I got the blackest black. I was so shocked when I opened it because the brush is so small, I usually prefer large "juicy" brushes.

I am enjoying this one for a change it gives a lot of volume and because the brush is small it gets all the small lashes!
