Most Helpful Positive Review Multi-purpose Perfection
This is perfect as a brow gel and for lashes if you are looking for a more natural look (or if you are like me and just don't want to deal with removing black mascara every single night. Let's give those puppies a break :P). Lashes are defined with no need of a colored mascara. I also tried putting this on before applying a colored mascara and it was nice. It seperated and lengthened my lashes and made the colored mascara go on smoothly. This didn't flake on me, didn't change color when dry, and did not feel sticky on the brows once dry. So overall, me likey.
Most Helpful Critical Review Great For Non Mascara Days
You get a lot of product for a low price. The formula is very wet and can be heavy. An issue is that the brush picks up a ridiculous amount of product, way too much. This can cause the lashes to clump and stick together. How I counteract this is by scraping off excess product using the edge of the tube. The brush is okay. It would have been better if it had more bristles to capture each lash individually. I usually apply the amount of product I would like on my lashes, wait about 1-2 minutes for the mascara to get a bit tacky and then take an eyelash brush to separate and achieve the shape I want. These are a lot of steps opposed to just swiping on and being finished. This would not be ideal for someone pressed for time. However, on most days I just do not want to wear regular mascara since it is a pain to remove. I hope they improve the product in the future. These changes would really elevate it as a product. But I still use it. I like it, not love it.

Good on lashes and brows!
Eyebrow Clear Gel
Vidhi from Severville, TN
I saw a YouTube beauty hacks video, where this mascara was used as a eyebrow gel. This was way before eyebrows became a thing, I tried it and I haven't stopped.
I've recommended this hack to family, friends, acquaintances and strangers in the Ulta store. I have tried it on my lashes, but I don't see any significance effect compared to a black or brown mascara.
Help for Brittle Lashes
Rock Gal from Schiller Park, IL
I am a mascara junkie but a had an awful stye on my eyelid. This caused me to lose a lot of eyelashes. The stye finally went away but my lashes are still too delicate to start using mascara. This helps build strength to lashes.

I think this product is ok but it's not super noticeable. For the price and purpose, it is ok. Underneath mascara it feels like a primer but on it's own as "clear mascara" it does not do a lot. I expected a bit more volume and more eye lash separation but it was not super noticeable. More of a primer than a wear alone but I wanted something to give my eyelashes a little boost for "non makeup days" i.e. working from home, zoom, etc.
Put it on your brows!
Jen from Mexico mo
I use this for my eyebrows when I don't feel like putting in the work and just want them to stay shaped. This also works great as a base coat for mascara!

So first you fill in your eyebrows with whatever you use and then let your eyebrows dry for a few minutes then use the clear eyebrow setting gel and you're good to go for the dau

Lashes are not clumpy and it keeps my brows locked in place. Love how universal it is for a natural look.

Great, did its job
Rae from Modesto ca
It was great ,did its job. I could get the same clear gel from a different brand for cheaper BUT the whole green top took me drown memory lane as my mom use to use the pink container. So it got me in the feels
Great brow product
LA from MN
Keeps my brows in place all day, with no flaking. I haven't tried this as a mascara so I don't know how well it would work for that.
Great for brows
Tina from Brooklyn
I bought this originally for my lashes but they worked really well for my brows. Since my lashes are really straight the product just made my curled lashes droop even more. I recommend using this for your brows but not your lashes since it weighs them down.
Catlady555 from NJ
I use this product to keep my eyebrows in place. When all of my makeup is on, I brush this on my eyebrows and they stay in place all day. I have tried other brands, but I always go back to Maybelline Great Lash.
Mimi from Parker, CO
Use to control my unruly eyebrows.
I HATE this product so much.
em from nj
This gives my lashes no length whatsoever. This was a mistake. its a complete waste of money.
Great for brows!
BellaColleen from Lake Jackson
I use this on my brows it doesn't really work for mascara, at least for my lashes
Only reason I didn't give 5 stars is because it doesn't do much for the lashes
Best mascara I've tried
Nettle from Nebraska
Decided to try this as a last ditch effort in trying mascara, every brand/formula I have ever tried just sucks the moisture out of my eyes and I have to ermove all eye makeup because they get so irritated! I can wear this for hours with no issue and is not an obvious mascara which I prefer.
Perfect for Naps
Jas from Utah
I have fairly dark and curly eyelashes. I love the look they have with this on. It makes them pop in a very subtle way. I like that it's clear since I'm usually rubbing my eyes (bad habit, I know) or take random naps during the weekend. It is also super convenient to save space and have this work as my eyebrow gel. A very flexible fit that doesn't feel heavy by any means!
Doesn't work for lashes
K from T
I purchased this mascara for my lashes to hold a curl but still look natural, but this doesn't hold a curl. I'm not blaming maybelline because when I read some reviews they said it's not meant to hold a curl, but then what's the point? It just makes your lashes look wet, you can get the same effect with water. I still have it 3 stars though because it's great as an eyebrow gel, maybe just make it an eyebrow gel instead of labeling it as a mascara. It also just smells like clear glue...
Em from Colorado
I really wanted to love this. I wanted a clear mascara to hold my lashes after I curl them, but don't need to worry about smudging or fallout from black mascara, for more natural days. This does not hold a curl at all. I even tried curling again after I applied it and let it dry, and it didn't work (whereas with most mascara it holds a curl super well even if it's not good for my lashes). It just feels so wet with no hold, but putting more on just makes them look wet and clumped and not cute. I'm sure it'll work well for eyebrows but just not mascara.
