  • "I LOVE this mascara! It gives me both length and Volume which is amazing. I never have problems with it clumping up or flaking off throughout the day. The price is also amazing. My little sister also LOVES this mascara she says the brush and formula helps maintain her super long crazy lashes better then any other mascara she has ever used." in 660 reviews
  • "I use this mascara everyday! I love these particular one and could tell a difference. I have short curly lashes so I need length. This gives me that much extra that I need. It will need replaced however every 2 months or so or at least I have found. This particular one is not waterproof. " in 320 reviews

Review for: Very Black more...
This mascara called great lash is not as great as it sounds. It is a very clumpy formula and if you sweat a lot or work out this mascara would not be a very good choice because the black would get all over your under eyes and all around your face. It is expensive at ulta but if you go to target or your local drugstore it would be much cheaper. So i would not recommend this mascara but if you are broke then go for it.

This mascara is very great I love that it is super easy to apply the only thing that I don’t like is the applicator it is a synthetic applicator and I don’t like that it has the the cheap common applicator and I wish the applicator was different. I’d like that it’s very easy to take off very easy to put on and it makes my eyelashes voluminous and I don’t even have to curl them when I use this mascara.

One of my all time favorite mascaras ever. It's a classic for not only me, but my own mother as well lol. The wand is pretty great for separating my lashes without making them clumpy. It isn't flaky either. I highly recommend this. Don't be afraid of looking into drugstore makeup, because you will find some gems! I use this mascara just about every time I do my makeup, which is almost everyday.

Its a great everyday mascara that is buildable. While it does lengthen your lashes, it's not too dramatic and it can clump. I use this everyday for a 'natural look.' I wouldn't use this for special occasions or for a more dramatic lash. I will continue to use this product everyday.

I have pretty long lashes naturally but they are all blonde at the ends. This is a great basic mascara for someone like me who pretty much just wants the color. And it stays very well for me. I’ve cried in this and it didn’t run and I mean ugly cried and it didn’t run.

This is a very good layering mascara. I dont think I would use this product alone. This is great for lengthening your lashes after using a more expensive brand. This has been a go to formula for layering since I started wearing mascara so I could recommend,

This product doesn't even really deserve one star...this is the worst mascara I have ever tried. I have no idea how it gained the cult following that it has - maybe because it's been around forever, I have no idea.

The brush is way too tiny to be useful, for starters. The formula is super thin and wet, making it hard to apply without getting all over your eyelids. It's very messy. Not only that, it does absolutely nothing to my lashes. No lengthening, no volumizing, nothing. It doesn't help my lashes hold a's just honestly worthless.

The packaging is cute, but that's where the good things end. Do yourself a favor and stay far, far away from this stuff.

My mom has always used this mascara, so I figured I would give it a try. It goes on really well and stays in good. Not super heavy and I feel it makes my lashes appear longer than they are. Since it not an expensive mascara, I think it is a good contender!

This is one of my favorite drug store Mascaras. It looks so beautiful on the lashes and it’s super dark. It makes the lashes appear longer than they actually are which is exactly what I want. It also has a good amount of product for a great price.

Maybelline Great Lash is the only mascara that I use. I love the washable for it's ease to remove and the dark brown is the perfect option for my lashes. The only downfall is that it tends to run. In warmer months I just switch to water proof!
