Maybelline Great Lash mascara

07. april 2014


Hello my lovelies! Today I'll be reviewing a mascara for you - Maybelline's Great Lash in Blackest Black. I got it back in December, it was in a set with The Rocket, which was the reason I got the set in the first place but I also wanted to try this one, again. :)






This mascara brings back so many memories because it was the first mascara I ever bought/used. It hasn't changed over the years, though there are a few variations of it available now (which I haven't seen in our stores). Actually, I haven't seen this mascara being sold separately anymore - do let me know, if it's still available.

I absolutely love the ridiculously cute packaging though I can imagine a lot of people wouldn't like it. I don't know, there's just something about the combination of pink and green that works for me and the fact that it's a bit smaller and a tiny bit bulkier than your typical mascara. The wand however is another story... I'm not a real fan of it. It's quite small but that's not the problem, the problem is its shape - it doesn't have separate 'bristles', everything is kind of in one piece, a spiral. Because of this shape it doesn't separate the lashes quite as well as I'd like it to and it certainly doesn't give enough volume or length. It does however define the lashes and make them really black, but it gives more of a natural effect in my opinion. The application is not difficult but I find that I can't apply it without getting some of it on my lid or somewhere where it shouldn't go. :) It's not ideal, but nothing a bit of makeup remover on a cotton bud can't fix.

It's a nice mascara, it doesn't irritate my eyes and I haven't noticed it smudging on me throughout the day. I think I'll still use this mascara from time to time, it's just fun for me because I feel 13 again when I use it... but it's not a mascara I would keep on repurchasing. My tiny, sparse lashes need something that's a little bit more effective. :)


What do you think of this mascara, love it hate it or haven't tried it yet?

  1. Joj to maskaro pa je imela moja mama, pa sem se naskrivaj igrala včasih z njo :) drugače pa je verjetno sedaj ne bi kupila, krtačka se mi nekak ne dopade.. :)

    1. Ja, zato pa pravim, da me spominja na otroštvo. :D Ne, ni ravno super maskara in definitivno je ne bom ponovno kupila, ampak se je bilo pa zabavno malo z njo 'igrat'. :)

  2. Jaz sem tole maskaro, vendar novo verzijo- z novo obliko krtačke, v obliki srčka, jeseni kupila v ZDA, pa mi je kar fajn, moram rečt, da sem bila zelo pozitivno presenečena..

    Medtem ko za tole, ki jo imaš tudi ti, klasično obliko krtačke pri tej maskari, večinoma prebiram same kritike.. in je tudi jaz ne bi kupila.. je pa plus, ker tudi meni ne draži oči...

    1. Ja, tale verzija o kateri ti govoriš, mi zgleda zanimiva in po mojem bi dobro 'delovala', ampak je ni pri nas na voljo... tudi ta ne vem če je še na voljo za kupit posebej (je ravno zadnjič ena punca rekla, da je ne dobi nikjer več). Drugače pa ja, ok maskara, ampak nič posebnega. :)

  3. To je bila moja prva maskara, ene 8 let nazaj. Krtačka mi ni več, nebi je več kupila.

    1. Mislim, da nas jo je kar veliko uporabljalo v najstniških letih... jaz se spomnim, da je to bila moja prva maskara, kupili sva jo skupaj s sestrično - vsaka s svojo in se šle hitro domov namazat. :D

  4. Jo še nisem probala in glede na to, da imam raje plastične krtačke, jo verjetno tudi ne bom. :D

    1. Tudi meni načeloma bolj odgovarjajo maskare s plastičnimi krtačkama, ker mi nekako bolj ločijo trepalnice (imam majčkene, ki rabijo veliko pomoči do volumna in dolžine). :D

  5. Če bi bil efekt, ko oseba naravnost gleda, kot na zadnjih dveh slikah, potem ne bi bila slaba :D Mogoče, če si probaš prej uvit trepalnice, bi bil malo boljši učinek..

    1. Hah, sej sm si jih uvila... imam bolj uboge trepalnice Aida. :D

  6. Meni se zdi, da daje premalo volumna, čeprav, kot pravi Aida, na spodnjih dveh fotkah zgleda fajn. Jaz je verjetno ne bom prezkusila, bi raje kako drugo Maybellinovo prej vzela. :D

    1. Tudi jaz ti svetujem katero drugo Maybelline maskaro, čeprav ta ni grozna, je vseeno premalo. :D

    1. Se mi zdi, da nas jo kar večina pozna... ko sem bila 13 ali koliko let pač in sem jo prvič sprobala, mi je bila všeč, kasneje pa seveda sprobaš več maskar in odkriješ boljše. :D
