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 Awful
Says water proof no way! Super disappointed with this:(

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.
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
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.
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.
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.
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.

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
