Rated 2 out of 5 by from Used to be great! I have been using this mascara for over 30 yrs, noticed it dries out and clumps very quickly lately, I have to purchase a new one every week. Not very satisfied. Also mistakenly purchased waterproof, what a nightmare trying to get it off! Never again!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Hate the brush I am super happy with the mascara itself... but I absolutely hate the brush. It coats uneven and clumps in the wrong spots. My skin is very oily so the water proof is amazing and no raccoon eyes!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nothing but Great Lash I have used Great Lash mascara since I was 13 years old, and I am now almost 60. True, it is not the best if you are a cryer, or have very watery eyes because it does come off quite easy with just water of any kind. HOWEVER, that is the reason why I have always used it. I have tried their waterproof mascara, as well as other brands of mascara, and they all take more than a little soap and water or mascara remover to get them off of your lashes eyelashes.. The needless rubbing of the eye area is horrible for the delicate area surrounding the entire eye, which will cause wrinkles and tiny blood vessels to break from all the wiping and rubbing, not to mention loosening the eyelashes from the tugging. All I do is blink in the shower several times , and most of the mascara washes away, then I use a dab of Dove body wash and it all comes off clean and easily with no tugging. I truly believe because of the way it washes off is the reason why my 60 year old eyes look like they are 40 year old eyes! I have to admit, I do put on a lot of coats just because I like a heavier looking lash, but even 2 coats would be fine for most people.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from MASCARA FOR SOMEONE WHO HAS HAD MULTIPLE EYE PROCE I HAVE USED AND DISCARDED MORE NEW MASCARA THAN I CARE TO THINK AFTER THREE YEARS OF EYE PROCEDURES (ALL SUCCESSFUL) THEY HAVE LEFT MY EYES VERY SENSITIVE TO CHEMICALS THAT I WAS NEVER SENSITIVE TO BEFORE. RECENTLY I TRIED THE BASIC PINK TUBED GREAT LASH - WHAT A WONDERFUL PRODUCT - BOUGHT THE BLUE AND DARK BROWN FOR MY PURSE, HOME, DESK AT WORK. NOT ONE MINUTE OF IRRITATION EVEN WHEN REAPPLYING AT END OF LONG DAY. FANTASTIC

Rated 5 out of 5 by from ROYAL BLUE I was using the Royal Blue for many years and was sad when I went to the store and couldn't find it anywhere. I am not a fan of waterproof mascara and Great lash goes on so nicely, no clumping and the color was awesome. Please bring back the Royal Blue for all your loyal fans!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Please bring back the 3-sided comb In the 60s and 70s, when I first wore mascara as a teenager, this same washable mascara had a 3-sided comb and the formula seemed to be a little bit better. It went on very smoothly and made your lashes very long. It would be awesome if you could reach into your old files and bring this back. I remember the blue also and it was very pretty. I wanted to impart a tip I use on the washable mascara...when it seems a little bit dry put a drop or two of water on the brush, reinsert it and move it up and down in the container a few times and the mascara will be more like new again. This helps the mascara last longer also. THANK YOU for making this mascara in dark brown!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from what happened? the last two tubes i've bought have been terrible. i don't know if there was a recent formula change or what happened. i have been using this stuff for 10 years and loved it. i didn't even finish one tube because i thought maybe i got a dud, but the next tube i bought was just as awful. used to give me long dark lashes, now hardly coats them. i look like i'm not even wearing any!!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from not what it used to be!! I have used Maybelline Great Lash Mascara for years!!! Last week I bought a new tube of mascara..its watered down...its called blackest black(color) and I don't see any black on my lashes..I really think since Maybelline has come out with new Mascara products (for a lot more money), the quality is down so to entice the buyer to but the volumuous products for a lot more...sorry but this is NOT the product it used to be ...and a lot less in the tube also....

Rated 3 out of 5 by from When are you bringing blue back? I have been looking for your blue mascara. I decided to go online instead of running around to stores and checking packages. I see here you no longer make it. That will save me trips, but now I have to find a company that does make blue mascara. That is the only reason I had bought yours over the years.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Mascara I have used the blue great lash mascara for over 40 years. I was extremely dissapointed when the color blue was discontinued. I went to great lengths to try and find a similar product with no success. I was searching this evening for a tube of mascara when I came across 3 blue great lash tubes. I was ecstatic! I checked Maybelline's website and read where your company had brought it back. I'm so happy! Thank you, thank you!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best mascara ever Over the last 40+ years I have tried many Mascaras, (get suckered in to try the latest and greatest) I always come back to the little pink and green tube because it really is the best. It stays on, doesn't flake and washes off easy. PLEASE don't ever change the formulation!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It is my go to mascara!!!! I bought this from Target at a very reasonable price! When I was little and would try on my mom’s makeup, I would always love how this mascara looked on me!!! I thought it was beautiful! So when I got older I decided to buy some in the shade of blackish-brownish! I couldn’t be happier with it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Mascara I've loved this mascara since I was I. High school ('97) I have tried other threw out the years and ALWAYS come back to Maybaline. Like an old friend we pickup right where we left and realize we will be friends forever.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Old Reliable! I have sensitive eyes, and I've been using this for years. I have some very expensive mascaras that I've gotten as samples, but they irritated my eyes, so this mascara has been relied on for many a decade. I buy a new one every two months. My eyes thank you!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Under eye shadow after a days work I have used this for many years but something changed. The wand is great, the color is perfect and not clumpy. By the time I get home from work, the shade is under my eyes, flaked off and I have to blot it off. I can no longer use this mascara, which I have loved, because I get raccoon eyes after wearing a few hours. I am a Maybelline girl but sadly have to say goodbye to this icon.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Itchy eyes I bought this in dark brown as my first mascara,and I really like it, but recently I've been itching around my right eye, and only when I'm wearing the mascara. This really disappoints me, because I see that it says that this stuff is hypoallergenic tested. If you have sensitive eyes, maybe consider not buying this product.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from I HATE IT!!! It is one of the worst mascaras ever it's not waterproof it smudges and doesn't separate my lashes
Date published: 2017-07-26
Rated 3 out of 5 by from It's okay This would be good product for young girls, but if you're looking for something to lengthen and make your lashes voluminous, this isn't your mascara. This mascara is a bit clumpy too, not to mention the wand's brushes are very short.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great mascara I have used this for as long as I can remember. I have tried other ones but keep going back to this one. I am 63 years old and I just love it. Do you ever have any coupons or this product?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Royal Blue I found the Royal Blue last year at a Walmart. Darn I only bought one..... Love the blue and every time I wear it I get asked where I got it because it is si beautiful, that my coworkers want to buy some to. But now I can't find it anywhere not even online. Please bring this back long enough for people to know it is available. I have tried other brands......not at all happy with any of them like I am with Great Lash. Sincerely, Disappointed that I can't find it. Cindy, Utah

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Fried out? I'm really sad to say that the last three tubes of this I've bought have been extremely dry. The first application is great and how it used to be, but now the product barely lasts me two weeks. As someone who would wear this every day, I am extremely disappointed. I've unfortunately had to switch mascaras. Did the formula change? I had a friend experience the same thing and also switch.

Is Great Lash mascara Gluten Free?

Asked by: Robert
Hi Robert! Most ingredients derived from grain sources are highly refined and retain no traces of gluten proteins. For less refined ingredients from natural sources, Maybelline has established strict limits on the level of potentially allergenic proteins. Since individuals exhibit a wide range of sensitivities to these proteins, if you have any questions or concerns you should discuss with your medical care provider. All the ingredients we use in a product are listed on the package or the label of the product itself. For products too small to accommodate the list, a separate ingredient list is available on the display unit in the store for your convenience. Since some ingredients are known by more than one name, we use the standard industry FDA-recognized names. A review of the ingredients that are listed on all of our products or packages will alert you to the presence of this type of ingredient.
