Do pandas wear Great Lash mascara

AdvantagesGave me lovely lashes


"...magazines in the past praising Maybelline Great Lash Mascara so I thought I’d give it a try. I bought the Waterproof version of this as I wear contact lenses and in my experience waterproof mascaras are better at not flaking off into my eyes. I paid £4.99 for this in Boots which I thought was an excellent price for a mascara. It is also available at supermarkets and pharmacies. The packaging is a little cheap looking in my opinion. The tube is ..." Read review

Great big fat lashes....finally?

AdvantagesEverything really, apart from not giving me 'dramatic' lashes!

DisadvantagesDoesn't give me fat, fluttery, pretty lashes that I so desperately want!

"...are told that it is Maybelline 'New York', Great Lash, 'Waterproof', No.1 Mascara In The U.S and that it perfectly separates lashes, has a conditioning formula and gives no clumps.There is also a small picture shown of the mascara brush and we are told that it is a precise lash building brush and the colour is shown by a colour coded dot and given its name (in my case I opted for very black). On the back of the card we are told a bit about the product ..." Read review

Not completely naked in the bath

AdvantagesStays on

Disadvantagesdaughters pinch it

"...the 'famous' pink tube of Maybelline Great Lash Waterproof. This one has a black cap instead of the umm now what was it? Green ? thats the normal lid of Great Lash isnt it? I am amazed that there is no packaging as such, I just picked it of the display stand.....I took one from the back as I couldnt help wondering just how many people had 'sampled' the ones at the front. Thats right no cardboard box....just a tube of mascara. This is a very ..." Read review

Not so great lash mascara

Advantagesgives good colour, separates lashes, cheap

Disadvantagesdoesn't add much length or thickness

"I love my Max Factor Masterpiece mascaras, they're absolutely fantastic and my they're my first choice when it comes to eye make-up. I've been using Max Factor mascara for years, and was reluctant to change, but at £9 a go, I was hoping I could find something cheaper as I'm trying to save money at the moment. I decided to try Maybelline's Great Lash mascara which I bought from Boots a while back with one of those '£2 off make-up' vouchers that they ..." Read review

Great lash is a great mascara! Review with images

AdvantagesCute bottle, works well

DisadvantagesMaybe not quite as good as other Maybelline mascaras

"...knows how much I love Maybelline make up products, particularly their mascaras ;) I hadn't tried this one before but my old one had pretty much ran out so I started using it straight away. I love the bottle it comes in. It's pink with a black lid and black writing and has a cute retro look. It looks great on my dressing table or in my make up bag :) I found the mascara easy to apply, and it rarely clumps. I usually find with Maybelline mascaras ..." Read review

Waterproof Maybelline great lash mascara

AdvantagesVery very waterproof, lives up to the description, Amazing when curled.

DisadvantagesHard to build, Hard to remove, can be annoying if not removed at end of day

"...as i love the newer Maybelline ones, such as falsies and collossal (amazing btw).. Plus after seeing it around for years i thought it would be a standalone product. It's product description is perfectly defines lashes with a clean and separate finish, not too much volume so if thats what you are looking for it's perfect, note it doesn't add too much length. But i was a little dissapointed by this as i though it was volumising but didnt read the description.. ..." Read review

Great lash? My eye!

AdvantagesNot many really

DisadvantagesFlaky and dry

"...magazines etc say how wonderful Maybelline Great Lash mascara is. I cannot pass comment on the regular variety but I found this waterproof one to be very disappointing. The product is in a pink tube with bright green top so very distinctive and easy to spot. It has the wording in black down the side. It cost me £4.79 in Boots but I'm sure a better price could be found if you shop around. So, onto using the mascara: It took several coats ..." Read review

It really does give me a Great Lash

AdvantagesDoesn't flake, gives me thick, curly lashes.

DisadvantagesNone that I can think off.

"I've had this for about two months now and I've still got loads left, and I normally apply a lot of mascara to my eyelashes! I say this is a bargain for a fiver. The packaging may look small but if you look carefully it gives you more ml of mascara than other mascaras on which the packaging in double the size. I like how the brush is small and quite thin. Normally mascaras with fat brushes have half the mascara on the brush! This only takes me ..." Read review

definition as opposed to great lashes

Advantagescheap, good for definition

Disadvantagesmessy on application, leaves soot below eyes

"After reading some of the reviews about this mascara I was persuaded to go out and buy a tube to try. I thought I would go for the waterproof version just because it was raining that week and I decided upon 'very black' as the colour. I bought this from Boots and it cost me £4.88. I was a bit sceptical at first as I thought the tube looked a bit cheap - its bright pink with a black handle - and I wasn't sure if I wanted to change from my usual ..." Read review

Maybelline Great Lash - Truly great lashes!

AdvantagesGood value for money, can irritate some

DisadvantagesDifficult to remove

"I bought this mascara on a whim from the Superdrug website with the Scarlett and Crimson liquid eyeliner pen. I had bought it bought them to achieve the dramatic smokey-eyed look for when my partner and I were going out to dinner, and I still use it on the odd occasion. It is one of the three mascaras I regularly use. I like the shape of this mascara as it has two geometrical shapes as a base. The lid is in the shape of a cylinder (like most mascara ..."

Maybelline Great Lash Waterproof

AdvantagesVery waterproof

DisadvantagesDoesn't make your eyes bold.

"I always see adverts on the TV showing different mascaras making womens eyes look amazing but never have I achieved the same look from any. My most recent mascara I use is this which I'd say is okay. Don't get me wrong it is very waterproof and takes some getting off with wipes, so it's one to go swimming with. But I wasn't overly excited by how it made my eyelashes look, they didn't look 'very black' and lengthened by the mascara. The brush is an ..." Read review
