Review : Maybelline Great Lash Mascara

An Award winning mascara on beauty magazines, that's why I'm really excited to try this! Too bad its already discontinued, but you can check Ebay or Amazon for sellers.

* the brush is small so it reaches my tiniest lashes
* it lengthens (its a volumizing mascara btw)
* can be removed easily
* does not sting the eyes
* holds a lot of product (a regular tube contains only 7ml)
* doesn't smudge during the day

* its clumpy
* made my lashes stick together

* not volumizing!

This is a volumizing type of mascara. If you want longer lashes, apply a volumizing mascara first, let it dry and apply a lengthening mascara for a falsies effect..

I'm quite disappointed with this product! I expected a lot from this so called Award-winning mascara.. I love Maybelline's Volume Express more. I only use this as second coat to my other mascara's if I want to lengthen my lashes.

2.5 out of 5

You know what Khymm? This mascara is hailed the best in the US but never down here I guess the formulation is made for people on the western side, but at least the price you got isn't that expensive, at least its not really a waste, plus the fact that you can reach to the smallest lashes, its good :)
