Editor's Rating & Review
"America's No.1 mascara" lives up to its name: It's No.1 in sales ... and in heated debate by women. OK, so we admit it's not the most lengthening, volumizing formula. (The curved-brush version helps.) It can also smudge in humidity. (Try waterproof.) And while it applies well wet, flaking and clumping can occur if you let it dry between coats (not recommended). As a short-lashed contact-lens wearer, I love its natural look and washability. And for less than five bucks? It's worth a shot.
Maybelline New York Great Lash Washable Mascara Reviews
A Good, Basic, Affordable Mascara!When I was young but beginning to use Maybelline's "Ultra Lash" in a white tube, my older sister came home from college and showed me a "treasure trove" of products she had bought on her own. She was working part-time while going to school, living on campus, and so she shopped the aisles of the drugstores of the college. I remember being in complete shock at the vivid pink-and-green packaging of this item. I held it in my hand in disbelief. What? Did my sister lose her mind with "Great Lash?" Pink and green? Who mixes pink and green? "Ultra Lash" was demure, as was the Estee Lauder mascara in a sedate navy tube I would occasionally "borrow" from my mom without her knowing (I've learned since then--please NEVER use mascara belonging to someone else!). Would this radical mascara make my eyelashes so long that they appeared false? Would they touch my nose? Would my parents politely stop me before I left for school and ask me to wash it off? I quickly learned that the tube is far more ostentatious than the mascara itself. "GREAT LASH" IS SIMPLY A GOOD, BASIC MASCARA. The curved wand does indeed make application much easier (I would suggest having a mascara comb on hand to weed out any clumps which may occur, but this hasn't been a problem with me). It doesn't add fantastic volume or length, but it does color and accentuate my small lashes, especially once I have curled them. The ability to wash it off is something I truly like. Eyelashes often do not grow back; years ago I was brutal when I would remove makeup, thinking that they would reappear as regularly as my natural hair. There is no flaking involved with "Great Lash." It is long-lasting. And I can always afford it. Yes, I prefer other brands to really make my eyes pop, but for some reason--perhaps because of sentimentality and the love of my sister--"Great Lash" remains in my makeup stash. Hey, Maybelline is still selling it, so there must be a reason why . . . — 2 months, 3 weeks agoGigiSD | 548 reviews
Some girlsI know several girls who have beautiful lashes that use this mascara. I tried it, but it didn't do anything at all, other than make my lashes clump together. I guess it only works for some people. — 2 years, 3 months agoLittleBunny | 526 reviews
So SoI have used this before. I stopped using it because I wasn't impressed. Gives me a "very seperated" lash. I like mascaras that give me a bigger bushier lash. Be careful when you apply it to your lash trying not to let it touch your skin, it has a pretty looose consistancy so it will make a big mess — 4 months, 3 weeks agoEricaF123 | 443 reviews
