Lots of impact. Lots of style. Maybelline’s Great Lash Lots Of Lashes exclusive great little grabber brush lets you easily reach all of your lashes to multiply their impact. No clumps; no mess. Contact lens safe and ophthalmologist tested.
Maybelline’s most famous mascara is their original Great Lash mascara. The company recently released a new mascara in the Great Lash line–Lots of Lashes mascara, reviewed here in the color Brown Black.
This mascara looks just like the original Great Lash mascara, except that the brush is in a tear-drop shape.
Brown Black appears as a soft black color on the lashes.
The formula seems to be the same as the regular Great Lash formula, which is on the watery side and takes more time than usual to dry.
The mascara defines the lashes a little, mostly by virtue of giving them color. The mascara doesn’t clump in the traditional sense, but will stick 2-3 lashes together, making you lose volume.
The original Great Lash mascara transfers easily, leaving you with smudges on the lower lash-line as the day progresses. This formula did not smudge as much as the original. The shape of the new brush helps dramatize the lashes more than the original brush.
Overall, this mascara defines slightly, but doesn’t volumize or lengthen.
Ease of Use: 8.5/10
Because the formula is watery, you need to wait at least 30 seconds for the mascara to dry. Otherwise, it will transfer around the eye.
For $4.99, you get 0.43 fl oz of mascara. This is the same price as the other Great Lash mascaras.
