Maybelline Great Lash Mascara Review in "Blackest Black"

 Hello Everyone!!
Blogging is addictive o!! Yes i said so... I have fallen into a routine of posting on Mondays and Fridays but i wanted to review this today so here goes.
I only own two mascaras : Mac zoomlash  mascara and Maybelline Collossal which was included in the goodybag i received at the Maybelline Nigeria launch. Yes maybelline is in Nigeria... I am not a big mascara fan because i dont really care for them and all the volume they promise to provide. I do like a good coating over my very sparse lashes which have seen better days thanks to my incessant need to yank them off when they hurt.
I saw this mascara while doing some makeup purchasing when i travelled and decided to try it out. I had read it was good and it seemed like a good idea to try it out.

Why You'll Love It

• America's favorite mascara conditions as it thickens
• Lash-doubling formula glides on smoothly to build great-looking lashes
• Lash-building brush makes it easy to get a full lash look without clumps or globs
• Contact lens safe
• Hypoallergenic
• Washable, available in Waterproof and Curved Brush


PRODUCT: This Maybelline’ Great Lash mascara is supposed to provide plump volume, conditioning as it thickens lashes. The lash doubling  formula is supposed to glide on smoothly to build great looking smudge-proof lashes. Maybelline also claims their lash building brush makes it easy to get a full lash look. This mascara is alright. It didnt do magic to my eyelashes but it gets the job done. It did plump my lashes a bit and i like how dark it is.
It does smudge a little bit and was a bit watery at first but it has slowly thickened after i opened it. I noticed the collosal did the same thing too.

PACKAGING : This mascara comes in a pink and green tube and has a  spoolie-type standard bristle brush . I like the packaging alot. Very pretty and colorful.

PRICE: I purchased this for an equivalent of N1800. I do not know the Nigerian price of this and i want to believe maybelline has set up their stands in leading makeup stores as i heard they would. I know maybelline does not have and will not have a stand alone store but i havent sighted their stands at any beauty stores i have been to recently... Maybelline whats up??

I quite like it. Or maybe i dont get excited over mascara.. ;S..Do you have this mascara? Let me know what u think.

Thanks for Stopping!!
