I've been buying this mascara for years now and it's great. Gives me full long lashes after a few coats and lasts the whole day. No clumps. No flakes. No Smudges. Easy to remove with any make up cleanser. Love the fact I can purchase this at my local supermarket along with my shopping and always at a great price.

Maybelline Great Lash Mascara Review
I always have a great lash mascara in my makeup kit. It lasts well, doesn't clump on my lashes or give me panda eyes. This is a great, natural looking mascara whilst giving my eyes nice definition.
It’s an average massacre. A bit messy to apply then tends to smudge during the day. Panda eyes not really the look I’m going for. Didn’t want to stay on my lashes.
I love Maybelline mascaras and this was my favourite back in the 90s. I even remember my mum using it back in the 1970s. I did try it again recently just because it is such a classic, and for those retro vibes, but I was actually pretty disappointed.
As far as what I would have expected of a mascara back in the day, its fine. Back then I would have just expected something that coloured my lashes but nowadays I expect (and need) more! It doesn't really lengthen, thicken or curl, all of which my puny lashes need. So sadly, I'll be leaving this one in the past where it belongs.
I know this mascara has an amazing and long lived reputation...but I just don’t get it.
It didn’t lengthen or thicken my lashes, and it flaked and then smudged. I would’ve been better off going mascara free.
If you can make this product work for you, I envy you as it’s a cost effective alternative to other leading mascaras on the market. But I just can’t.
Perhaps it was amazing in its day and has become a cult favorite but I just think there are so many awesome mascaras out there now that this product has been outdated.
It also isn’t cruelty free so I wouldn’t buy it on those grounds nowadays anyway.
Tips: I would avoid.
I came back to this a couple years ago after it being my absolute go to in my younger years. I'm sure it's still great, but I've moved on.
I now find the packaging a little dated and the wand too thin. The formula is okay - darkens lashes and makes them stand out, but no real lengthening, volumising or curling properties.
Basically, this is an entry level mascara that is affordable, wears well, isn't too dramatic and will last you throughout your day, but it's no longer what I like to wear on my eyes.
Tips: cheap enough to try - and great as a spare, starter, or if you're not a huge mascara fan.
I wanted to like this mascara as I usually like Maybelline products. But I find it clumpy, and it never seems to dry. I also don'l like that it stings and irritates my eyes at the slightest bit of contact.
It gets the job done, I used to use this allot. For the price it is defiantly worth it. But it doesn’t extend your lashes to their full potential like some other mascaras do. It lasts a long time and doesn’t dry out when not used regularly like some do.
Don’t need any gimmicks or claims of longer/thicker/bolder. Simple mascara like this does the job every time. I’ve been sucked into many a gimmicky mascara over the years, but I’ve always ended up back with mabelline great lashes because it does what it says, and it doesn’t go clumpy. I really rate this affordable mascara.
I used this all through my teens and a few years into my twenties before I got into higher end products. It does the job and the black is truly black. I'd certainly buy it again if I couldn't afford something higher end, and I do recall it having great lengthening effects but not sure how it compares to newer products on the market. Its a good one to have in the stash anyway.
