REVIEW // Maybelline Great Lash Mascara

This is a little bit of a random review for me if I'm honest - The Maybelline Great Lash Mascara was one of the first mascara's I ever used, purchased by my sister, I absolutely loved it - I've always been a fan of long black lashes and plenty of eyeliner, more so than wearing lipstick and I'm very particular about Mascara, I like Volume, Length, Black and zero clumping. I haven't used this mascara for probably about 6 or 7 years maybe but I found a new one in my stash while moving house and for nostalgia reasons, opened and used it straight away and I've fallen back in love with it, big time. So, this isn't the normal type of Mascara that I go for these days but I've found it gives a really lovely natural look to the lashes, you do have to work with it a bit to build it up but once your finished, you have lashes that are perfectly separated with extra length. I tend to lean towards using this for work or if I'm having a very low key makeup day because it doesn't give that dramatic, bold effect I get with my other Mascaras which I actually quite like, it's nice to have for an everyday simple look. The brush is suprisingly tiny on this which makes it really good for getting to all the lashes and really good for the lower lashes as well, in fact, even if I'm using a different mascara for my top lashes I tend to pull this out for my lower lashes because the brush just works really well for them. I love the packaging, it's always had this retro green and pink packaging, which I love but the thing I love the most about this is that it's under £5 - I'm not sure when and why Mascara's started getting so expensive but some of the drugstore brands are over £10 these days which is a little crazy, although I have a high end mascara review coming up which is over the £30 mark *shudders* but yes, this is a lovely mascara and if you want natural, pretty lashes, give this a whirl.

You can pick it up here for £4.99

Have you used this? What do you think?

  1. I've had this in my collection for a while, I love it... it's one of those that you have to spend a little time with because I find I have to build it to get good length and volume but no matter how much you put on it never clumps does it!

  3. I've never tried this mascara before but was always drawn in by the cute packaging! And the fact that it's such a bargain makes it even better! Might pick this up on my next trip to Boots ;)
