Oldie but Goodie: Maybelline Great Lash Mascara

I have always been curious as to why this particular Maybelline mascara is raved by everyone who uses it. Unfortunately, just when I decided to try it, they discontinued the distribution here in the Philippines. Alas, I found an opportunity to try it through my husband. He bough it at Walmart for $4.44 or almost Php 200 pesos. It's amazing and alarming how cheap Maybelline products are sold in the U.S. knowing that a tube costs almost Php 500 here in the Philippines.


Maybelline Great Lash Mascara is Maybelline's best-selling mascara of all time. I even read an article stating that a tube of this mascara is being sold for every 5 seconds. My mom was looking for this since 2012 so I gave her my other tube that was supposed to be given as a giveaway here. Anyway. Other than the crazy colorful tube of this mascara, the wand applicator makes this product all the more special. The bristles of this spiral wand reaches the tiniest bit of eyelashes which is really great for the length of my uneven lashes. The formula lengthens and thickens even the tips.


Unfortunately, I did not get the waterproof version. I have super oily lids and my under eye tends to darken after five to six hours due to the mascara falling off. It doesn't add volume but sticks the lashes together instead which is a bummer since I have to separate them after application. 

Overall, if you want a natural-looking lashes with a bit of lengthening without the dramatic look, Maybelline Great Lash Mascara is for you. It's not available in our local counters but there's a lot of online sellers that you can choose from. I've been using this mascara everyday and it's great for day to day wear but it is not the tube that I'll wear on a night event though.

  1. I've been a Maybelline mascara fan since... forever. The first ever mascara I bought was from Maybelline, but I've never actually tried Great Lash. It's funny because my mom had a tube, but I didn't really bother.

    1. Me too! Maybelline is my first lipstick/mascara/blush everything.. I still love the brand, but I'm just trying to explore others. Thanks for visiting my blog :)

  2. Perhaps it's because I'm always looking for intense volumizing or lengthening, but this is a perfectly good mascara for normal definition. :)

    1. I agree! Though this mascara is good for the daily "natural" look, it doesn't give the best volumizing or lengthening effect. :)
