The Little Black Dress of Mascaras??

There is a reason why this mascara Maybelline Great Lash has been around so long. From its iconic packaging to its fabulous angled brush it's easy to see why it is still a staple in a makeup artists arsenal. Yet it's still a little like a well kept secret as it doesn't seem to be a go to product for us regular gals. In fact I had never tried this mascara up until yesterday! In all my twenty years... I was informed on My Facebook blog page that this is one of the first mascara a many of you first got to grips with. This is the one that broke your blackest black lash virginity! 

When I was perusing Penney's as you do I saw this little pink and green beauty on sale for six euro! Such a bargain for what I was to discover is a fantastic eyelash coater. It's early days yet but one might call it the Little black dress of mascara. The old reliable you keep returning to because it makes you look fantastic. 

I am seriously impresses with this mascara first off because of the shamazing brush. I don't know what I expected but it certainly wasn't this fabulous thin angled brush. I wiggled this brush through the base of my lashes and upwards to fully coat them and I was rewarded with lashes that could rival a pair of falsies. See picture below...

Keeping in mind I was a blonde baby and have barely any lashes to speak of this mascara did an amazing job! 

Only downside would be it can get a little messy when you try to coat even the tiniest of lashes on the inner corners of your eyes. This mascara wore extremely well and did not flake off, which is a huge pet hate of mine. 

The verdict? Run don't walk to Penneys to pick up this LBD of mascaras, you won't regret it although you will need a steady hand. 



  1. Always been one of my favourite mascaras. Cant go wrong with it!

    1. It can get a little messy is the only downside but I am always rushing so probably my fault haha :) I love the brush though, makes it a lot easier to get all of your lashes x

  2. Have to say this is my lifesaver product, i agree with everything you have said, it's fantastic and such good value!
