Maybelline Great Lash Big Washable Mascara – Blackest Black Review

For a lot of time my sister used to rave about this particular mascara. She loves it and bought one for me too. After trying it, I know exactly why! It is my go-to mascara these days, I take it with me every day and use it for any kind of look, simple or dramatic, this can cater to all needs. Maybelline earlier had the “smaller” version of this, which was considered not at all good in beauty-verse, so they revamped the formula and brush, releasing this “BIG” version. This new one is much loved universally and I myself now LOVE this mascara.

Maybelline Great Lash Big Washable Mascara Blackest Black Review

Product Details:

Why You Will Love It:

Live Big!

  • Bigger brush for great big live-it-up lashes!
  • The Great BIG Brush plus volume-building formula gives great BIG lashes.
  • Volume builds with each coat – no clumps or globs.
  • Contact lens safe.
  • Ophthalmologist-tested.

Black Mascara 1

For Best Results:

Sweep the Great BIG Brush from root to tip of lashes to build big volume. Continue building volume until you achieve your desired look. Do not let dry between coats. Removes easily with soap and water or with Expert Eyes® 100% Oil-Free Eye Makeup Remover.

Price:

$5.49 ~ Rs. 300 for 10 ml (you can find online deals for Rs. 270 as well).

I don’t leave my house without mascara.  I may not have an eyeshadow or eyeliner on (God forbid), but I never leave out mascara, but the thing that bothers me most about it is removing them. Most of them need so much effort; one has to wiggle and rub and press down and even at times end up losing an eyelash or two in the process. When I discovered that this was a “washable” mascara, I had crossed my fingers, hands, legs, everything, praying that it stays true to its claims and boy oh boy, was I in for a delight! This mascara really comes off as easily as a normal eyeshadow does. I have to spend more time on my liner, liquid or gel, than on the mascara. There is just no extra effort required. So, the lashes remain intact.

Other than the removal ease, the actual performance of this product is also pretty exceptional. It really visibly thickens the lashes and elongates them as well. What more does a girl need from a mascara?! In the image below, on top, I have no mascara on, in the middle – there is one coat of mascara, in the bottom most – I have on 2-3 coats of this mascara.

It does not clump no matter how many times I pile it on. I think the big brush with the densely packed bristles really help in separating the lashes. The formula is fairly thick and one needn’t wipe any excess off before applying it to the eyes, as the brush picks up only the required amount.

Maybelline also always has the cutest packaging when it comes to mascara.

Pros of Maybelline Great Lash Big Washable Mascara – Blackest Black:

  • It really elongates, thickens the lashes.
  • Does not smudge even on the lower lashes.
  • The big, dense brush, coats and separates each lash.
  • Cute packaging.
  • Does not clump even with multiple coats.
  • One coat is enough to see the effect.
  • It comes off easily with any regular cleanser you already may be using.

Cons of Maybelline Great Lash Big Washable Mascara – Blackest Black:

  • I am not sure if it’s widely available in India. It can be found online here though.
  • The label on this comes off from the edges and the sticky underside gets dirty and it looks very unappealing! I wish they had placed it on more securely, or may be its just me and I’m using it tossed in my makeup bag very carelessly, but then again, the remaining products don’t have any peeling issues. Anyway, I prefer my product to have secure labels as it is easy to repurchase or just know what I have and not look dirty.

IMBB Rating:

4.5/5, I wish the label was put on more securely!

Will I Repurchase Maybelline Great Lash Big Washable Mascara – Blackest Black?

Most definitely! I cannot live without a good mascara and when I find one, I never forget it. The best part about this mascara is how easy it is to remove it.

I hope this helped you guys and happy Makeuping!
