- "The mascara is simply great and it last long, it specially works on the bottom lashes and gives them a lot of volume it is better than high brand mascaras!!" in 6 reviews
I know that this mascara has received rave reviews and has quite the following but I can't say I've had the same positive experiences. Before doing my research on drugstore mascaras, this used to blindly be my go to. The formula is quite runny and liquid--if you have pin straight, stubborn eyelashes--this formula is not for you. Neither is the brush. The bristles on the brush are quite "rough" and not "spaced out" if you get my drift. The runny formula combined with the thick bristles cause heavy clumping. In comparison to the many other drugstore mascaras that offer light, drier formulas with softer brushes, this mascara ranks as the lowest.
I was just mentioning in my last youtube video that this will forever be my favorite mascara, but alas as a vlogger I must branch out. So, I'm giving my Urban Decay Perversion a try that I just got in my Sephora Play box. I will also be trying some cult faves from the drug store to see how they stack up! This is the BEST H2O drug store mascara out there. Gives separation and volume galore. Cannot be beaten. A MAC artist told me he prefers this over any other mascara.
This is honestly waterproof. Sometimes I struggle getting it off at the end of the night but that's what I want. I work and a very known coffee chain, and I get splashed with water about 100 times a shift. I can never go back to using non water proof mascara for work. It doesn't go on very thick or make your eyes look drastically changed but if you pair this with other mascaras or you put on multiple coats then it looks awesome. Also works very well on bottom lashes
This mascara is the bomb.com. I was looking for something easy and cheap but not over the top. This was perfect. It gives great volume and leaves a natural long looking feel to my lashes. I would say that its not very water proof but even easyier to come off. With other mascaras ive notice they tend to make some of my lashes fall out. I'm not a big fan of Maybelline products but this is the shit, I'm telling u. Great cost to, saving ur money and looking great
I really enjoy this mascara, especially for it being decently cheap. It isn't the best at giving length or volume, but other than that I like it. As long as you curl your lashes (or just have long lashes) it will look fine. Also, the formula is great! It's not too thick or too runny. I love that it is super black, so you don't have to go over it again to make it darker. I always recommend this to people who are looking for a fairly cheap, basic mascara.
This was the first mascara I have ever tried in my whole life. My mom used it all of the time and I so badly wanted one of my own. I was so excited when my best friend said she had a brand new one that she could give me, since she already had so many. I instantly fell in love with makeup after this. This mascara is a cult classic and is just amazing. If you need a basic pigmented mascara, this is it. It's everything you need in a mascara.
My mother has used this mascara forever, and she still adores it to this day. I finally tried it out, and I've gotta admit- I'm impressed! For being a drug store brand, it gives me the same lash volume as my higher end brands at a fraction of the price. Considering the fact that mascara has to be replaced every 6 months, I think I'm going to switch to this low-cost, very effective alternative.
I love this on my bottom lashes which is why I gave it 3 stars (in fact it IS a 5 star product if only using it on bottom lashes) it doesn't do well as a stand alone mascara. It doesn't provide volume or lift, it doesn't separate that well or add much length. If you want a bottom lash mascara, look no further.. but if you need something for your top lashes.. stay away from this.
Maybelline Great Lash has been around for a long time. There's a reason for that...it's tried & true! The waterproof kind is great & doesn't make you look like a raccoon when you go swimming. This little pink & green bottle isn't going anywhere anytime soon. I'm glad, too, because, even though it's not the most expensive mascara on the market, it's consistently reliable mascara.
I tried this mascara because sooo many magazines talk about how good it is so since i only use waterproof mascara in the summer because of the heat i tried it. I, myself, didn't see what all the fuss was about . It was okay i guess but there are soooo many more mascaras that i can tell you about that beat this one by a long shot. So my review is don't waste ur money.booo.
