Maybelline’s Great Lash mascara is responsible for the great racoon eye incidences of ’96, ’97, ’01, and ’11.
Oh, Great Lash, why can’t you just let my lashes be great?
Although I will admit that Great Lash CAN be great for certain individuals, I am just not one of those people. Yes, it works amazingly well and is grail-worthy for a select group of people, but on me it’s just an invitation to spend the day in smudgeville.
I decided long ago to resist ANY temptation the little pink and green tube had, but when I noticed that it had been released with a brand new brush I could not say no to Maybelline Great Lash Lots of Lashes.
And what a cool, little, plastic brush it is!
The results of the cool, little, plastic brush are admittedly impressive. I couldn’t get over the fact that my lashes looked lush and voluminous. But then, shortly after application … the inevitable.
Folks, this is just the beginning of day of charcoal colored rain on my undereye area. It’s not pretty the way my lashes repel this formula! Then on the other hand, look at my lashes after three coats, with no ensuing lash crunchiness. It hurts to hate this formula!
Although Great Lash Lots of Lashes doesn’t work so well on my lashes, the brush is fantastic. If the formula has not turned your lashes into a freak show of flakiness, you will love this retake on a long-time mascara.
