so the first mascara my mum ever for got me was the maybelline great lash mascara. Its really an iconic mascara to me, because of the brightness of the bottle with the pink bottle and green cap. Its really a cute mascara and so cheap too. Now i think that this mascara is alright. people seem to either hate it or love it, and i think its good for when you want to build up your lashes, or you want to make really doll like lashes. The formula is really really wet, almost goopy so you have to wait wait wait for it to dry between coats and comb through with a brush. it also takes forever to remove, but its almost never more that $5 so whatever.
when i saw they came out with a new brush for this mascara, i really had to try it, because i’ve been so into the smaller mascara brushes lately (like the givenchy one) and this is a very small precise looking brush.

i think that this brush could have worked, if they had made spikes on the tip, like the benefit They’re Real mascara brush. Instead, it has a dome’d tip and that means you can really smudge up the inner lashes as you work your way out. i do like how little the brush is and how there are lots of little bristles. i really like plastic mascara wands though, because i find they don’t clump as much. so i like this. it does give you volume too and separates your lashes well, but be light handed and let it dry between coats, because it will clump. like crazy.
**old spirally brush. its very different from the current mascara wand. but it does work**

the formula is so wet, that if you go even the slightest bit overboard, it just clumps like you wouldn’t believe. it can be really messy to get off too and you can look like you just had the worst breakup ever or your dad just died if you aren’t careful.
it can also be heavy and not hold a curl, but also dry stiff so your lashes feel really done up. also, if there is any any any chance that it might rain, D O N O T U S E T H I S M A S C A R A. it will run rivets down your cheeks.

i’m not sure i’ll every buy this again. i’m not really into it, and would rather have lashblast for a little bit more.
ps Happy 40th birthday great lash.
