- "love the way it makes my eyes pop! it has the perfect brush to go along with it. it has a great value and is not too pricey either. would really recommend this to anyone who wants their eyeslashes to have more volume." in 363 reviews
I was super excited to try it! I wore blue mascara back in the day and its been years since Ive tried it.
I must say, I am a little disappointed. The color is absolutely beautiful on the applicator, however, once applied, it was barely noticeable. I was expecting fuller, more vibrant lashes.
I tried it a second time, this time applied over my other black mascara. It looked slightly better 😀
I used two coats as well.
Overall, the color is beautiful, just wish it would adhere better & look more vibrant once applied.
I received Maybelline Great Lash Blue free/complimentary for testing purposes, but all opinions are your own.
i'm not familiar with other Maybelline mascaras, so while the tube looks the same, green and pink, I can't speak for the wand. It's short and straight, but the bristles are arranged in a spiral pattern on the brush. I don't really like this. It took quite a few strokes to cover my lashes, especially those corner lashes. A longer brush might help with that.
But I did like the blue more than I figured I would. It's noticeable but not super dramatic. This is probably due to the fact that the formula doesn't add anything in terms of length or volume -- or lift for that matter. My lashes were straight out. While this wasn't clumpy, it didn't perform well exactly. From a mascara, I expect more. As a colored paint, which is what the formula feels like, it's okay.
I wish I could tell you how this mascara held up over time (I had greasy lids and only ever wear tubing mascara because of this), but it only took a minute or so before my eyes felt dry and my lashed felt stabby. I quickly had to remove it because of the discomfort. The mascara removed easily, but I'm pretty hesitant to try it again because of this.
Even without that, it does nothing at all for my lashes and would probably give me blue raccoon eyes over the day. If you're looking for a colored mascara, this one is probably cheap, but you'll want to layer it over mascara that does something for your lashes or perhaps over a base and under a top coat.
unless you can justify throwing your money away, however, I'd skip this one.
