Most Helpful Critical Review Tried it, but did not like it.
I thought I'd give the waterproof formula a try because in the past, I didn't think Great Lash ("the pink tube") was available in a waterproof formula. Soon after putting it on my lashes, I noticed that my eyes were stinging . At the end of the day, I also noticed my eyes were really red, but I thought it was due to the sun or my allergies. Then, when I tried to remove the mascara, it seemed really hard to come off. I tried to be as gentle as possible, but I noticed a few lashes on my cotton pad. I have really thin and short lashes anyway, but over the next few days, I noticed that my lashes had fallen out. This was a shock because I hardly have any lashes anyway. I gave my lashes a break and didn't wear any mascara and still they are barely there. This has never happened to me before. In the past, if a lash or two have come off on the cotton swab, my lashes eventually filled in, but this has taken a toll on my little lashes. Be warned.
Reviewed by 387 customers Color bleeds with sweat
Venus from CO
Maybe i'm just an abnormally oily eye skinned person Lol?? I saw all the great reviews so was very excited to try a new brand when I could no longer find my old one. But, the sweat from my eyes just makes the color from this mascara smudge all over my lower lids and gives me raccoon eyes after only about an hour or two. I tried adding powder to my lower lid to keep it dry, but it's just not helping. The color is amazing when I first put it on, the brush itself is perfect for separating and coloring each lash. So, I think if you have a dry lower lid naturally, this would probably be ok to give a try.
I love this product

I got this product because I needed a cheap mascara in a pinch and it was like four bucks at the store. Looking back I wish I had spent a few extra dollars and just bought my regular mascara, because this one is downright AWFUL! It is a super thin formula, resulting in mascara getting all over my eyelid, no matter how I apply it. Also it clumps like crazy and just makes your lashes look bad in general. (Think spider legs.) The only reason I gave it two stars and not one is because it's pretty lengthening and doesn't flake that bad.

This mascara was so clumpy on my eyes and it smears so easily. The only good thing about it was that it is super dark
wonderful! but not waterproof

Z from Charleston SC
I love for everyday make up. And I also use it for shows, long lasting
Honestly just all around terrible!
Tay from Kansas
This mascara Felt like it was impossible to put on without it smearing or getting into my eyes and burning the heck out of them! It takes a really long time to dry, just a big mess! Not a fan! I've tried a lot of mariscaras and this is just your dollar store emergency mascara if anything lol.
Keep your ridiculously expensive mascara.
Angel from Upstate NY
You can keep all your expensive mascaras. Nothing works as well as this oldie but goodie. I've tried different brands over the years but never found a waterproof mascara that is better this one. I curl my lashes, put a layer of this mascara on and they STAY CURLED! And it is truly waterproof, have never had an issue. It's not flakey, not too thick, just right. And of course, you can't beat the price.
Did fantastic when I cried!
Autumn from Oregon
Bought to wear to a funeral and it did fantastic. I cried a lot and it didn't even rub off onto a tissue.
I've been using this over 40 yrs
Debra from Maine
I love this mascara & have been using it since I was 11. The formula doesn't seem to have changed. I love Eyeko for super waterproof that lasts a couple of days when I'm taking a long weekend to see my family. I use this Maybelline Waterproof Mascara every day & I still love it after more than 40 years.
Great Lash - Great Mascara
judykoby from Raleigh, NC
Love Great Lash Mascara...it makes your lashes look full and dark. I prefer the waterproof but it comes in washable also. I also prefer the brush that comes in the waterproof formula because it brings in all of your lashes and makes them look full and lush. It lasts all day without flaking and comes off easily with Maybelline makeup remover.
A classic go to.
Debra from Maine
I've been using this mascara since I was a teenager, also my daughters first mascara. It's been my mascara for over 30 yrs. I have been trying new mascaras lately & the catrice waterproof compares to this. Goes on nice, comes off easily w/baby oil or makeup remover.
Can't Go Wrong with a Classic
PH from CT
I bought this mascara for my daughter's to wear in her first school play.
The best and affordable
Nancy from Terre Haute, Indiana
You can't beat Maybelline Great Lash for an affordable mascara. I've used expensive department store lines and always return to Great Lash.
This is my favorite mascara, it works great!!
Andy from Tuscaloosa, AL
I use this mascara every day, it brightens my eyes. Making my eyelashes thicker & darker. I have tried so many different ones but I have never been happy with them.
Amazing and affordable
Maggie from NC
I have over active tear ducts, so I have to wear waterproof mascara and this is honestly one of the best ones I have tried! It doesn't smudge or flake!
I would buy this product again
Dawn from Wantagh, NY
I finally found a mascara I love. It doesn't clump at all.
I would buy this product again and again.
Nikki from PA
I use this mascara whenever it is going out on a date, just for fun, or even for work. I have always bought this mascara because it doesn't clump, it stays on, it works amazing, and it comes off easily when I wash my face
2 Coats At Least from Chicago, IL
Classic mascara doesn't run. Does it's job.
Make sure you wait for the product to dry between applications or it tends to clump a little.
Used this for years
MtnMomma from Colorado
I've used this product for years and love it. When it's new, it does need a few coats to make the lashes look thick. Some people find that off-putting at first, but stick with it. It's fantastically waterproof. My eyes water easily (wind, dry air, etc.), and I cry at everything: a beautiful sunset, an amazing song, happiness, sadness, you name it. This never smudges or makes me look like a raccoon.

It's a classic.
Grammy from Tulsa, OK
I have used Maybelline waterproof mascara for a long time and ran out, so I tried a CoverGirl mascara I had...new package. It often flaked off, falling on my cheeks. That's bad! Maybelline is really waterproof, but removes easily with remover. I'm 71 years old and wear it every day.
Meow from Meow
