- Maybelline BIG Great Lash Mascara...

Maybelline BIG Great Lash Mascara in Blackest Black, £4.99

Who else remembers the craze around Maybelline's Great Lash mascara a few years ago? Well, after such a huge success, Maybelline have recently released a modified version to the market. Enter, the BIG Great Lash! With a new, bigger brush this mascara is all about volume. It claims to achieve bigger lashes with the use of an altered brush combined with it's volume-building formula.

I'm not one who usually uses or likes mascaras with such big brushes so I was a little wary of this product, however, I was left surprised with how it performed. Despite the size of the brush, no product escaped onto my eyelids and I actually applied it to my lower lashes with ease. This is because the centre of the brush grabbed my lashes effectively, assisting the application greatly.

I'm also sceptical when mascaras promise volume because in my head I interpret this as clump central, however, I gained no clumps whatsoever with this mascara. At only £4.99(!) I am so pleased with this mascara that it's made it's way into my everyday make up bag. I understand how essential it is to be honest in a product review and mascara is usually something I find a negative in, but not for this one!

Superb volume with no clumps, a great curled effect, an intense black colour and really affordable - this altered mascara is a must-have!

Have you tried this new mascara? Let me know in the comments.

  2. I was obsessed with this back in the day, I think it was the bright packaging! It's made your eyelashes look great and I don't suppose you can really complain about a product with such a pocket friendly price. I do think they should have called it Great Big Lash instead of BIG Great Lash, but that could just be me!

  6. This mascara looks great on you, I remember the old version of this was my jam back in like 2005 hahah, I used to wear this all the time! I prefer denser brushes and this one looks a lot better than the old one!

  7. I love Great Lash, but I never did have great success with the BIG Great Lash mascara. But I still use the regular, smaller wand and I love it!

  10. I have found myself reaching for Great Lash the past few weeks because it gives such a natural look so quickly. I might have a look at BIG Great Lash next time I'm Downtown because mascara is so expensive here - it's like $12 for Falsies

  11. I actually really liked the smaller wand on the older version as it was perfect for the bottom lashes! But no doubt I will still be giving this a go at some point, especially since it looks amazing on you x
