For the past couple of weeks, I have been trying Maybelline’s Great Lash® mascara in Very Black. Pink tube, green cap. I know you are probably thinking “Jaz, that mascara’s been around for forty years.” I know. In the past, I would go to the store and I would see it but I just pass it up. Since makeup is my hobby, I figured I would try it.
My Lash Type: Very curly to the point it is sometimes a challenge putting on liquid liner. You would think I actually curled my lashes but they naturally look that way. Not thin but, somewhat thick. So the ideal mascaras for me need to lengthen, volumize, separate, and thicken.
- Conditions as it thickens
I do agree with this claim. In my experience, it did thicken my lashes. When I washed it off, it left my lashes very soft. I barely had any lashes fall out.
- Lash-doubling formula glides on smoothly to build great-looking lashes
This product was very buildable not just on the lashes but also on itself. I had no problems putting this on. It was a breeze!
- Lash-building brush makes it easy to get a full lash look without clumps or globs
My lashes were very full and had great separation. The product thickened my lashes without getting clumpy. I like that the brush is tapered at the end to get those “hard to get” lashes in the inner corner. My only complaint is that it has a very wet formula that takes awhile to dry. So, try to keep your eyes open for at least twenty seconds after putting the product on. Other than that, it is a great mascara and I will be purchasing this again. It also comes in waterproof and/or with a curved brush. Other products from the Great Lash® line are Great Lash Big® and Great Lash Lots of Lashes™.
