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 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bring back Royal Blue I agree on bringing back royal blue !!! The only mascara I use. I put 3 visine drops in the one tube I have left. it is like a new purschase, sadly that trick is no longer working. BRING IT BACK, PLEASE. !!!!! Anybody know how to still get some? I was in Wallgreens and found a different brand blue mascara. Wanted to try again to find Maybelline. No luck. I am sorry to say I will be switching. That is how much I like royal blue. Please e-mail me if you decide to make it available for purchase again. (I have blue eyes and the royal blue really makes them stand out).

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Do not buy Been buying your product all my adult life, never disappointed till this time. I used to be able to curl my lashes then apply mascara & the curl stayed . This time as soon as I applied mascara, my lashes lost all curl & fell straight down ? Did you change the formula, if so why ?? It felt thin and watery, instead of the thick viscous feel as before ? Not going to buy this again, ever.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from What happened! I have also been using this mascara since i was in my teens, i am now sixty. When i would buy a tube of 'great lash' it would last me for a couple or more months, glide onto my already long lashes, no clumps no problem ..now it does not glide on, clumpy, just awful and the tube lasts barely a couple of weeks before i have to toss it because the consistensey has become so bad. Obviously the formula has been changed..what was a superior great product has been ruined.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from BRING BACK THE BLUE!!!!! I have used Royal Blue mascara for over 30 yrs and have never had a problem finding it until now. I went to buy some today and couldnt find it anywhere. Then I read on your website that it has been discontinued. WHY???? After reading all of these comments here, apparently there is alot of people who use it. I mean come on, how many shades of black do you need to make??? PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE start making it again.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Used To Be the BEST I have been using Great Last on and off for nearly 30 years. I always come back to it because it used to be the best... even better than the expensive, department store brands that I used to use religiously. But what happened to the formula? It's just awful now. It feels like some weird, watery mix of petroleum jelly and dye that winds up more on my eyelids than my eyelashes. There is no lengthening element anymore. It's terrible. Perhaps Maybelline is focusing its efforts on the new line of voluminous mascaras. I've tried all those too. On the other side of the spectrum, those formulas feels thick and sticky. By the end of the day my eyelashes are sticky and clumping together in a globby mess. I think you should go back to what works, Maybelline. In the meantime, I guess I will go back to my department store brands.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Royal Blue I can't believe it, no more Maybelline Royal Blue mascara on the shelves. This is the only mascara I can wear due to allergies. Without the lovely blue on my eyes I look sick. I get compliments several times a day about my eyes and the mascara and always tell them how this great product. Yikes, what am I going to do!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Blue is back! #greatlashblue I received this mascara in the #greatlashblue voxbox and I was excited to see that a product I so fondly remember my mother using when I was a little girl has made a comeback in a big way! First off I want to say thank you to @influenster & @maybelline for the free products for testing! This was my first #voxbox and I was incredibly excited to try on and review the makeup. Please keep in mind though the products were free my review is my own honest opinion... so now all that is out of the way, here it is. [product:maybelline-great-lash-royal-blue-mascara] comes in the cute and classic tradition bright pink and green tube we all know and love from maybelline great lash mascaras and it also has the same (I'd describe it as a more separated spiral bristle) lash building brush. As for the formula I love that it is smooth and not clumpy, it doesn't leave me with tarantula eyes and I love that I can keep building until I am satisfied with my look! When it comes to the color I also am satisfied with the results, I am a brunette with dark lashes and you definitely see a slight pop of color in most lights. Outside in the sun and in well light areas that slight pop becomes a wow! The royal blue really is a gorgeous color and gives even my everyday simple cateye and chapstick a fun wow factor without the overdone feeling. Just a tip: use a mascara primer, for those of you with dark lashes that really want the blue to pop more, it really helps to add to the drama!

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.
