Beth reviews: Maybelline New York Great Lash Mascara
We challenge you to find a woman who doesn’t instantly recognise the iconic green and pink packaging of Maybelline New York Great Lash Mascara, which has been around since 1971.
So surely this mascara, which is sold every 1.2 seconds worldwide, has something going for it? The cult classic claims to thicken and enhance lashes, delivering that full lash look without clumping or messiness.
bh’s Beth trialled the mascara and here’s the difference Great Lash made to her lashes:
“The mascara isn’t as pigmented as I’d like it to be, so while it’s perfect for everyday wear, I'd prefer a formula that's a bit more dramatic for night.”
Beth recommends Maybelline New York Great Lash for:
Those who are looking for a subtle, everyday look.
“Maybelline's iconic mascara is a great everyday mascara. The small brush made it really easy to apply, with no clumping or ending up with formula everywhere but my lashes, which is a pet hate of mine. It’s a fail-safe one to apply when you’re in a rush!
At just $12.95, it also has a very reasonable price point. Unfortunately I found the formula wasn't quite thick enough, so it didn't have a great hold – my lashes tend to bend in all directions so they need a mascara that'll secure them in place.”
