Hit or Miss? Maybelline Great Lash Colored Mascara

Hey Guys! I saw these in an ad in a magazine, and I was so excited to try them! Remember when Maybelline made the Royal Blue Great Lash Mascara? I remember wearing it all the time when I was in high school. I’m not going to say how long ago that was! haha.

I just had to give these a try, so I picked up the purple one, Vision In Violet.I have heard that purple eyeshadow is a really good color to use on brown eyes, so I figured purple mascara would be pretty. I got it for $3.97 at Walmart.



Maybelline released six limited edition colors. From left to right: Wink Of Pink, So Very Berry, Vision In Violet, Green With Envy, I See Blue, and Teal Appeal.

At first, I was not sure how to wear this, I didn’t know whether to wear it on it’s own, or layered on top of my other mascara. Maybelline Great Lash has a very small brush, and is very natural looking when applied. I don’t like natural looking lashes. I go for big, volumized, fake looking lashes, so Maybelline Great Lash isn’t my favorite.

So, first I tried to apply it over my regular mascara. FAIL. Clump central! The color did not even show up. So then, I took my mascara off and applied it by itself.

This mascara does nothing for my lashes. No volume, no length, and the brush is so small that it takes me so long to coat all my lashes. Oh, and it doesn’t look colored! I guess I will use this on my bottom lashes, just because it’s easy to coat those with the brush.

This mascara was a miss for me.

Have you guys tried this? Let me know your thoughts!

Have a great day and thanks for reading!
