  • "I only buy waterproof mascara - because I tend to smudge my eye makeup by the end of the day. With the right product, it is easy to remove. I especially appreciate that this mascara is waterproof when I work out and sweat, and during the summer, when I want to swim. This was one of my necessary items in my makeup bag when I got married! I definitely shed some tears that day, and did not want my eye makeup to smudge. :)" in 273 reviews

I love this product. For me, it is challenging to find a mascara that does not bother my eyes. You can't go wrong with this classic. It is long wearing, easy to remove and does what mascara should. While it doesn't have the extreme lengthening and volumizing formula that some others do on the market, it is a perfect product for me since I'm unable to wear a lot of the formulas mentioned above. The price is excellent and the quality is superb for what you're paying.  Maybelline Great Lash® Waterproof Mascara

This was probably the very first mascara I ever owned. We never really know a lot when we first start using makeup. It made me look like I actually had eyelashes and when I was a teenager, I was happy with that. In reality, it didn't provide my lashes with the length and the volume I wanted so I decided to switch to a different product. It also made my eyelashes super brittle and crunchy. My eyelashes fell out so much when I removed my eye makeup. Overall, would not recommend.

This mascara is just a classic. I'm pretty sure as a teenager this was the first mascara I ever owned, and I still have it in my makeup bag to this day. The bristles on a brush are spread out so it covers every lash and provides amazing length. The only downside to this mascara, is that it does not really provide as much as volume as I would like it to, which is why I didn't give it 5 stars. But the length I get from it is unbeatable for a drugstore mascara.

I used to use this in high school. I recently purchased it again after some frustration with drug store mascaras. I LOVE the Sephora curling mascara (In the black spiral tube) but I am not always close to Sephora and it isnt great for lower lashes. This Maybelline classic is a basic good mascara. it doesn't clump. Doesn't give fullness but is pretty good at it's age! HA! IT"S A MUST FOR LOWER LASHES. I use the curved brush and use the outer bend of the brush to get to my smaller lashes. it is the ONLY thing to use on lower lashes. Yes, be careful as it can smudge during application but use a little q tip to wipe off if it gets under your eyes. I dont really know why, but this is the ONLY mascara I've had beautiful results for my lower lashes. It does work well for upper lashes too, you have to work at it and brush it more than some mascaras. It's still a good stand by. I haven't found the wow I am looking for for the upper lashes, but the Sephora one comes close but not always convenient to get if not near a store.

Every single person who has ever worn mascara used this one at some point. This was like, THE THING to have for so long. It was amazing on both top and bottom lashes and created the length and definition we were all desperately searching for. I still keep it in my collection for a rainy day. There are so many different want options and I love how well they work. Its not super flaky and doesn't make your lashes grossly thick or clumpy. Its just right!

For an inexpensive or beginner mascara, look no further! This waterproof mascara glides on without clumping. Allow the application to dry, and apply another until your lashes are as full as you'd like. If you notice a clumping issue, just warn the bottle in your hands. And, if you're not getting the desired fullness or length, add a little powder to your lashes between applications. Great value for the price.

This Mascara is okay and I mean just okay. If you are looking just to add some color to your normal lashes without much length or volume this might be the one for you. I find that when out in the sun the mascara tends to get tacky and uncomfortable to wear. It is waterproof as stated and I enjoy using this on my lower lashes. I remember this being a good first choice when learning about makeup but maybe the formula was changed somewhere down the line.

I used to buy this mascara years ago, it was actually the first one I ever bought but then I started to buy other brands and got hooked on the high end ones and forgot this one. It’s actually pretty good for a drugstore mascara. I haven’t used it for years but I do remember I liked it a lot. Personally it gave me more length than volume but my lashes looked pretty.

This mascara is a great product for people that have little to no lashes and allows them to have thick long lashes without giving you that spider leg look. I pair this with my L’Oréal lash paradise mascara and my lashes look super full and lifted. I highly recommend purchasing this mascara plus it’s only $4-$5 depending on where you purchase it from!

I’ve repurchased this mascara probably 5 times because it like it so much. It stays on super well with rain or sweat but comes off easy with makeup remover. I have straight eyelashes that I curl before putting this on and it holds the curl well. I don’t notice any fall out from this either even if I’m exercising or swimming with it on.
