Review || Maybelline Great Lash Mascara in Blackest Black

Good Morning Everyone!

I know I might be a bit late but I've recently bought the highly rated Maybelline Great Lash Mascara and I am amazed by it! I'm not easily pleased when it comes to mascaras as my eyelashes are really fair and it's hard to get full coverage without making my lashes look clumpy. I have recently been loving Benefits They're Real mascara and as I'm running out of it I thought I'll purchase a few drugstore mascaras to try out.

I don't really like the packaging. It's different to most of Maybelline's mascaras as the shape of the bottle - I guess it's a bottle? Is much different to their usual spike shaped ones. I was a massive fan of the Collossal mascara and heard a lot of positive reviews of the Great Lash mascara. 

I do quite like the colour of the packaging - it's different and the colours seem perfect for this time of year. It is quite small, therefore perfect size to pop in your makeup bag or take with you on holiday. 

I chose the shade 'blackest black' as like I've said before, I like my lashes super dark as they're naturally fair and when I get them tinted it doesn't last long. 

I really like the brush as it's not too thin and not too big and gives perfect coverage on all types of lashes. I personally prefer to use it on my top lashes rather than my bottom ones as I find it that it leaves product on my waterline and is a bit untidy but that's my personal opinion and pet peeve when it comes to mascaras!

The bristles are spread quite far apart  which you'd expect to clump your lashes, however it actually somehow spreads them apart and makes them look thicker. All I can really say is that for the ridiculously low price of £4.99 everyone should own this mascara at some point in their life as it really is amazing. A storing 9/10, well done Maybelline! You've done it again!!

Have you tried this mascara before? What's your favourite Maybelline product?

Lots of love,

  1. I always heard such good things about this mascara! The brush does not captivate my attention but I have to try it one day! x

    1. I was sceptical to buy it at first, but I honestly must admit that I love it! It's definitely worth a try! X

  2. I used this mascara all the time whilst in High School, I don't know if I'd pick it up again, but it is really good, especially for the price! x

    1. It's always a good one to fall back on if you're running out of a trusty high end mascara! X
