|in 131 Very Black|
Well, I never quite understood why Great Lash gets the attention and recognition that it does. I tried to like it many times, each time I was disappointed. I thought maybe it was the thin brush that was the problem for me so when I saw their new version with a bigger brush, I decided to give it a whirl. My holy grail mascara is Cover Girl Lash Blast. I love super think voluminous lashes and LB gives me just that but I could stand for a bit more length.
After several attempts, I just can't like this new Maybelline mascara either. The bigger brush allows for a better application than the original brush, but that isn't saying much. 3,000 coats and 10 minutes (slight exaggeration) later, I finally got my lashes to look meh, ok. It does give decent length to your lashes but it offers no volume whatsoever. Then to top it off, half way through my day, I looked in the mirror and saw a raccoon! The mascara had flaked off and stuck right under my eyes! I know it was my mascara because I had used all of my regular, everyday makeup and the mascara was the only different ingredient in the mix that day. I gave it two more trys and eacy time, half way through the day- same thing, raccoon eyes!
I don't remember the original Great Lash doing this so I'm surprised that the package claims that it is the "New Look Same Formula." I'm going to give it one last shot and layer it under my Lash Blast because I hate to be wasteful. If I still get raccoon eyes and unattractive lashes, it's straight to the trash can for this pretty pink and green tube!
I'm sticking to my Holy Grail- Cover Girl Lash Blast forever. Well maybe not forever, but I'm not trying any more mascaras for a while because I always end up disappointed and asking myself why would you try another mascara when you love your Lash Blast oh so much?!
Do you/have you ever used Maybelline's Great Lash?
What are your thoughts and opinions of it?
