I think that any woman who wears mascara is familiar with the infamous pink and green tube of mascara from Maybelline called Great Lash. In my very humble opinion, it is iconic to the brand.
In my many years of wearing makeup, I have worn drugstore to high end, expensive department store brands of mascaras yet I always come back to my Great Lash. First of all, it is easy on the pocketbook and every now and then, I can find a coupon to purchase it. Secondly, I go through mascara so often that personally, I cannot see spending $30 for a tube of mascara that technically should be thrown away every three months. Thirdly, Great Lash just WORKS for and looks good on me!
Great Lash does have a selection of shades to choose from and my shade of choice is Blackest Black-the darkest shade that they offer. I am lash deprived and do not have the long curly lashes like my ten year old was born with but Great Lash helps me achieve that look. Like a fantastic bra, the wand lifts and separates without clumping your lashes and I am all about the non clump look. The mascara, although it is not waterproof, wears like iron therefore it does not smudge and does last all day.
Although I do not wear contact lenses, I do know that this mascara is very safe for those who wear them. My lashes are very sensitive and I have never had a problem with Great Lash.
This mascara is very economical and if you look at your Sunday flyers, sometimes you can find a "buy one-get one" on the Maybelline brand and girlfriend, that is the time for you to stock up on these!
