Review: Maybelline Great Lash Lots of Lashes

Disclaimer: The following products were sent to me as a bzzagent for feedback and review purpose.

The most recent campaign I was included in as a Bzzagent was the Maybelline Baby Lips and Lots of Lashes, In my kit I was sent 5 Great lash mascara, and 5 of the babylips lip balm. This review will focus on the Great Lash Mascara and the babylips will be reviewed after.

I know the original great lash is a top favorite, I tried but it wasn't for me. but since I received this in my kit and saw the new wand design, I had to give it a try again.

Formula wise, I think that it is the same as the original one. It seperates, and lengthens, looks nice and natural. But it takes a while to dry, smudges easily, and any water near results in horrible racoon eyes. The only thing I liked about this new one is the new wand design, it was easier to apply and reach the sides of my lashes, and was perfect for coating individual lower lashes.

What I like:
-> Lengthens
-> Seperate lashes/ no thick clumps
-> Looks Natural
-> wand is small enough to reach all of my lashes
-> easy to coat lower lashes

What I don't like :
-> It takes a while to dry
-> Smudges
-> Not water proof

As much as I love the way my lashes look using this, I need a waterproof formula since I use eyedrops frequently throughout the day. Hopefully Maybelline comes out with a
 waterproof formula with this wand in the future.

I have a Baby Lips tube and it's just alright to me :/

It is hard to find the 'perfect' makeup/brands that doesnt melt or feel sticky in hot and humid weathers. I rarely wear makeup during summers here. 

thanks for always checking my blog out!

same thoughts, I thought it would be good since it was always featured in the top 10 mascaras, I bought the waterproof one after this to see but it also smudges on me. :(

I like the new wand design, but I've tried the original Great Lash and hated it. I could never understand why it was so popular. That's too bad this new formulation isn't much of an improvement :/

Yikes, I just hate it when my mascara runs esp. since that tends to be the case over here cuz it's so hot and humid. The pro's were very enticing but yikes, a non-waterproof mascara is a big no-no to me. Thanks for sharing!
