Most Helpful Positive Review Love this product! 😍
I use this product both by itself and with eyeliner and eyeshadow and it looks great! It expands your lashes and makes them look very nice. However, it isn't water proof.
Most Helpful Critical Review Original is best
I have been using Great Lash since Jr. High and I used to model as well...all the models I worked with used Great Lash. I don't like the brush onthis one! Sorry guys! The original is best. You can bend the brush how you want to get the right angles and it goes on your lashes better. I can't stand this brush and it doesn't help MY lashes. But "yay"! for the original Great Lash!

This mascara flaked off on my face and into my eyes. Not sure if this is an old tube that I received recently or if it's the formula?
Fake news. Not a lot of lashes

Expecting more. Maybelline used to work great.
Best mascara ever
MAE from Wisconsin
I have been using Great Lash since I was a teenager. I am 55. This is an iconic mascara, dating back to the '60s. After trying high end, department store brands, I always returned back to this mascara. Absolutely the best in every way: price, application and results!
Love this mascara
Natalie98 from North Carolina
I have used this mascara for 7 years, I'll try different mascaras and always go back to this one, I love this product! Everyone always asks what I use.
Definitely defines lots of lashes
Heather1999 from North Carolina
I love great lash mascara, it finds my tiniest lashes! It also easily washes off with any facial wash.
Better than high end!!!
Jasss from Riverside
Ive been using this mascara since middle school. I into the hype and bought high end mascara and i tried ALOT of brands & my eyelashes were weighed down, curl wouldnt hold, it would smear etc. after 6 yrs thinking maybe its just the way my lashes are..I decided to try this again and WOW!!! It makes my small lashes so much longer, they hold the curl the whole night, i have people asking if im wearing fake lashes. Idk if its the wand but this is my go to mascara! Plus im saving money lol

I have tried so many types of mascara and honestly, I haven't noticed much difference determined by price. It all comes down to the weight of the formula, whether you want it waterproof or not, and your brush preference. While there are definitely BAD mascaras out there, this is not one of them. This mascara works, especially for the price.
Now I see why
Lash serum believer from Los Angeles
Now I see why this is a classic! Ok let me start out by saying I've tried this mascara several times throughout my life. I have been given short, fine, straight lashes... I've finally given into trying lash serums and the grande serum worked for me very well thankfully.
When I had my original natural lashes I absolutely hated this mascara. Now that I actually have lashes, I really really love this mascara. Now the mascara has something to hold onto and accentuate.
This wand is genius. There were some negative reviews that freaked me out but ultimately I decided to try. I like the bristles, they're not firm or flimsy but somewhere in the middle. It's on the tinier side, so it's very precise. I like the ultra fine tip and the super wide side too. Was worried that I wouldn't be able to use it well for both eyes or that it would only favor one eye.
This mascara is great on its own but I really like using the essence primer, it does give more volume. Layering this mascara is easy, I personally like to apply a coat and then wait for a few seconds so it can start to set up before applying another coat. If I let it dry completely it's really not pleasant. If I don't let it set a little then it removes the previous layer. This is how I like to apply any mascara from any brand or formula.
I'm totally stocking up on this mascara next bogo or bogo half off, whatever deal they have with Maybelline.
Also the black color is pretty black.
In conclusion you'll probably hate this mascara if your lashes are short, but then again you'll probably not like 99% of mascaras if that's the case- at least for me it was. If you find yourself in the latter I highly recommend trying grande lash, my only regret is that I didn't do it sooner. I probably didn't do it sooner because I was skeptical that it would even work, didn't want to spend 70 for a serum that might work... low and behold the fountain of youth.
Holy Grail Mascara

I've been using this mascara for years. Nothing comes close.
THE BEST! HANDS DOWN!!
HollyKCstar from kansas city,missouri
i have really long lashes, and this lots of lashes formula with the heart wand is the best for me! i have tried expensive mascaras, and i've tried 100s of them, and I always go back to this one! I do not use the regular kind as the brush does nothing for my lashes! but seriously this heart shaped wand brush is the best I have ever used! if u are complaining about this, you must have tiny eyelashes. This really combs out my lashes and gives them that extra long length look. I get so many compliments on my lashes and everybody is always shocked when I tell them that this mascara is the best and the only ONE i use! If you have long lashes, GET THIS MASCARA! really start at the root of your lash, and brush this mascara thru and your lashes will look like Hollywood!

I have been using Great Lash for years...probably since it first hit the market. My last purchase takes several minutes, yes minutes, to dry. Don't blink, don't look up or down because you will be wearing it on your eyelids or under eye. I'm so disappointed in my last purchase. What happened to the original formula?
Not the best
Janet283 from undisclosed
I don't know about you but I like my eyelashes curled up but when I put this mascara on it made my eyelashes flat as a board even when I curled them beforehand. It was very unflattering.
Liz from LA
This is the first mascara I ever used, It's been years. Definitely recommend especially the one with this exact wand, it made my eyelashes look amazing
Very hard to use.
Lonny from Chatham, NJ
I'm 56 and have been using the Maybelline Mascara since I was about 16 and for me this new applicator is not good at all. It is hard to use, very clumpy, and the shape is too fat on one end, too pointy on the other. Maybe I'm just old. But I'm sad I'll have to find a new brand.
I wouldn't buy again.
Nora from Arizona
This mascara was my first ever mascara. I would curl my lashes and then immediately apply the mascara. I didn't let it dry between coats (like Maybelline said not to). Since it was my first mascara, I didn't realize how much it was clumping my lashes together and I thought "Wow! My eyelashes are huge!", but its's been a year and I've realized that this product was NOTHING compared to other mascaras I've bought. Take L'oreal Telescopic for example. Only $6 more and it's much more voluminous, long, less clumpy, and no flakes. After I put the mascara on, I headed to school and after about 1 hour, my friends told me I had flakes under my eyes. I head to the bathroom and it looks like a hurricane hit my eyes. I still used it after that day and it would ALWAYS get on my eyelid, even if I applied slowly and carefully. Don't buy this mascara.
Love the wand
Empress from Georgia
This wand is shaped great but the bottle I had came out clunky. I had to use another wand to separate my lashes.
Awful, awful brush
NickyBop from Oregon
Worst Mabelline product ever! Hate it!!!! Can't get product on my eyelashes without poking my eye out.
Gabby from Visalia
I always come back to this mascara, probably one of the best mascaras i have ever tried. I've tried from high end to low end mascara and this is probably my all time favorite because I always end up gettting it again.
Rose45 from Cleveland, Ohio
I bough tots of Lashes by accident and I'm so.glad that I did! I really like this new applicator, my eyelashes have gotten shorter in the corners over the years and this applicator makes it so easy to apply mascara to each lash. My eyelashes look really nice and full now.
Brooke from Undisclosed
Nice formula. I like the brush shape, it's good at giving you the desired fan effect. I just didn't like how flimsy the brush was.
I have a dry one!
Makeupismything from Bethlehem PA
This mascara is iconic! I used it ages ago and it is still about, even with the same colorful tube! This time, I have a dry one. Is there any way I can get it to work? Maybe the tube has been in the store too long.
Hi from FL
This mascara make my lashes hold the curls and tint it. The only downside doesn't give volume. It give a natural look without any smug. The forumlar is wet not creamy like L'Oréal mascara.
Favorite mascara right now
Glittergal from Hesperia
This is the best mascara for me right now, used to have a fav Almay. Used it for YEARS but they changes the packaging and formula. So the new search for mascara was on again. This one is 4 stars, the brush is the key, (I dont like this mascara with the OTHER brushes). The formula's okay. Lengthens, but not that great at filling and making them full. It's a little wet at first, makes curled lashes straight again if not careful, but the plus is that after a little time (a couple applications) the formula will thicken to the ideal consistency to eventually fill better and not be too wet. Goes on smooth, doesnt make the your lashes look dry and flakey and really gives them bold length.
Maria from IL
I refuse to buy a different mascara. I've used this for years and have tried high end ones that just disappointed me every time. They smear, the clump. You cannot beat this product. I absolutely love it.
Love this mascara and this particular wand
