OMG I’m so excited to share these! Apparently Maybelline releases their Great Lash Colored Mascara every year but this was the first year I’ve heard about them. They come in 6 shades and all of them are limited edition.
I’ve never used the regular Great Lash mascara but Maybelline has been selling it for over 40 years so it has to be great.
Light to medium skin tones- vision in violet
Dark to deep skin tones- so very berry
Light to medium skin tones- teal appeal
Dark to deep skin tones- I See Blue & wink of pink
So I was doing my regular drugstore runs yesterday and saw all of the Maybelline Great Lash Colored Mascara at Rite Aid and CVS. I was hesitant to buy them because they weren’t on sale but I grabbed them all anyway. When I came home I posted them on instagram and everyone that commented said they didn’t like them so that was a bummer. So I hurried up and tried them all; immediately I was in love. Come to find out all those who commented tried batches from previous years. So I’m guessing they changed the formula.
I did not use a white base or any other kind of base. I applied 1 full coat on both sides of my lashes. I really didn’t experience any clumping and they all provide moderate length and volume.
The pink one might not look so great on really light skintones and the purple one is barely noticeable on dark lashes. But in all actuality they are all pretty great. You can create all different types of looks with these. They are also fabulous for vacations. If I were going on an island getaway I’d take all of these, some eyeliner, lippies and be done.
If you purchased any of the Maybelline Great Lash Colored Mascara before and you didn’t like them because the color didn’t show up I suggest you give them another try.
Price: $5.39 at Rite Aid, $5.99 at CVS and $3.97 at Walmart only available this month!
