“Now allergic to Great Lash after using it for many years.”

Written on: 05/08/2014 by ayMiller128 (1 review written)

I am now allergic to Great Lash after using it for many years. Maybelline, you have recently changed your formula, giving me an allergic reaction of severe itchiness, redness and puffiness. I will never use this product again. I tried two newly opened tubes of mascara and had the same reaction twice. Never again… Read Full Review

“Sensitization ”

Written on: 28/07/2014

I'm glad to see I'm not the only one, but I had used this mascara for years and developed an allergy to it. Now if I use it even once my eyelids immediately get red, itchy, and puffy. I looked online and it said it may be the shellac ingredient. I use Almay now as it is hypoallergenic. I would rather go without makeup than use this product again. I know it's "affordable" but I would also add that it's very wet and takes awhile to dry which I don't like either… Read Full Review

“allergic reaction”

Written on: 27/04/2014 by soGleason121 (1 review written)

red swollen eyelids - I checked whether it was my daughter's cat, or nail varnish etc. but today I confirmed it is definitely this mascara. I don't wear eye shadow or eye liner so not those. I only hope I can still wear other types of mascara. (PS other Maybelline mascara's like 'colossal' have also caused reactions… Read Full Review

“ITCHY SWOLLEN EYES”

Written on: 11/01/2014

This mascara SUCKS. My eyes were so swollen today that I couldn't hardly open them, this mascara made my eyes super itchy and red and it was awful, how has this product not been recalled yet?!?! Something in the formula is setting everyone off and making everyone's eyes itch! I know two other people who had the same problem! Take this stuff off the shelves before someone goes blind!… Read Full Review

I've used Maybelline since. . .forever. I'm a former store and runway model. I've never, ever had a reaction until I used the latest Great Lash brownish black mascara. So disappointing. I've always had compliments on my eyes, but there certainly would have been only, "What happened to your swollen eyelids?" comments after I applied that mascara. Bausch and Lomb Lotemax, a prescription for blepharitis (allergic reaction of eyelids) got rid of it in 8 hours. Sheesh! I hope Maybelline corrects this immediately.

I just came back from the doctors, after spending $75 for a cortizone shot after suffering the same swollen itchy eye symptoms. Only thing that changed over the past 10 days was that I purchased Greatlash mascara.
I have thown it out and will find one that is hypoallergenic!

I just bought this product and I will always regret that decision: it gave me an awful allergic reaction and my eyes were swollen, red, and itchy for a week. Please do not buy this product. It is not worth it… Read Full Review

“Changed Formula?”

Written on: 21/08/2013 by KH203 (1 review written)

I have used this product for years & now find that I cannot remove it with any of the make up removal products I own. The formula must have changed. When I am able to remove some of the product, lashes come out too! Not good Mabelline, bring back the old formula!… Read Full Review

“Horrible Alergic Reaction”

Written on: 15/05/2013

Would absolutely not recommend this product. After one day of use, my eyes became red, swollen and extremely itchy. Currently taking Benadryl to help with the itch, but will be going to the doctor first thing tomorrow as my eyes were swollen shut this morning when I woke up. This seems to be an issue with this product, so maybe hey should reevaluate their formula… Read Full Review

“Allergic Reaction”

Written on: 25/03/2013

I have tried tons of different mascaras/eye make-up, and I have never had an allergic reaction to anything in my life. Great Lash is always listed as one of the best brands, so I decided to save money and give it a try. Big mistake. Now my eyes are red and swollen along the lash lines, and terribly itchy. This product is NOT hypoallergenic. I am not sensitive to make-up products at all, so this product is definitely to blame. Also, it did not make my lashes look that great either. It did… Read Full Review

“Messy then clumpy then Allergic reaction”

Written on: 20/02/2013 by MeganWatson (1 review written)

This mascara is horrible. It gets all over the place and the brush sucks. It makes your lashes clump together. Now my eyes r swollen, itchy and red past my lids all the way down to my cheek bones. I'm on Benadryl and other meds after days of trying to recover. Might have to go to the dr if it doesn't get better. Thanks a lot. Never buying this cheap mascara again. You get what you pay for… Read Full Review

“ALLERGIC REACTION”

Written on: 19/10/2012 by britnee (1 review written)

NEVER! EVER! had an allergic reaction to any makeup in my life! I have been using all different brands from the most inexpensive to the most pricy, and I have never had any problems with any allergies. I bought the Maybelline Great Lash in a two-pack, for less than $6.00 which I thought was a pretty good deal for the price, and I needed a mascara at the time. I used the mascara for the past 3 weeks, and I have the worst allergies on my lash lines. They are itchy, red, swollen, and are… Read Full Review

“Awesome Product!”

Written on: 24/06/2012

I wasn't sure if I wanted this product because I had seen so many commercials that say " This mascara will make your eye lashes fuller" or " It has a formula to make your eye lashes thick and long" and I'd try them and they didn't do anything they said their product did. So I was telling my friend about how I wasn't sure if I wanted to buy it because it could be like the other lies I had faced. The next day she gave me a Walgreens bag and in it was the Great Lash mascara. I told her I'd pay her… Read Full Review

“My Beautiful Eyes”

Written on: 07/05/2012 by lovelymee (1 review written)

Maybelline Great Lash has worked for me for many years. It makes my eye lashes look full, long and seperated. I've read a few reviews that say this masscara straightens their lashes, well then use an eye lash curler, that's what I do and I get gorgeous results:-) I love Maybelline Great Lash it works beautifully for me. And i will use it until it does me wrong, as in damage my lashes by breakage like a few have claimed. As for now I'm very pleased with Great Lash by Maybelline:-) <3… Read Full Review

“Hardcore allergies”

Written on: 12/04/2012

Ive used other maybelline products (collosal and falsies) and didn't have any problems so I tried great lash but had terrible allergies! My eyes got very itchy and it dried out the edges of my eyelids. It caused the skin on the lashes to peel and my eyes puffed up and became red and swollen. I loved the look of my lashes and it was great to use but something in the ingredients created terrible allergies. If I didn't have allergies I wouldn't use any other mascara… Read Full Review

“Its different”

Written on: 21/02/2012

Used for years, great seperating and volumising effect. However over the last year it irritates my eyes, dries my lashes and falls off, causing sore eyes. Will be trying a different brand next time.It dries out too quickly too. Shame. Has this product changed its ingredients??… Read Full Review

“Eyelashes are falling out and Breaking”

Written on: 13/01/2012 by kwater01 (1 review written)

I have used Great Lash Mascara for several years and have loved it. Recently they changed the packaging to a brighter pink packaging and it said a new look but the same great mascara. I think they changed the formula and it has been irritating my eyes for several weeks and now several are broken off and are falling out. (What are they putting in this new formula-hate to know)… Read Full Review

“Horrible Mascara!”

Written on: 07/11/2011 by maddie1 (1 review written)

I tried this mascara for the first itme last week and as I had a cold at the time I thought it was my cold that was irritating my eyes and I ceased using th mascara. I got better within a week and my eyes took a week to get better so I started using the mascara again. I got an even worse reaction this time. By the afternoon of that morning putting it on, my eyes were irritated, running, soooo ithcy it was incredible. When I got home I took it off but my eyes were still the same and even worse… Read Full Review

“Hating this product would be an understatement.”

Written on: 06/11/2011 by glitterzforevarz (1 review written)

I hate this product so much. Not only is it hard to take off, but this product left the skin around my eyes looking like they had scabies. This is definitely NOT hypoallergenic, so don't get fooled, please. I have very sensitive skin so I know how you guys feel on that one. I tried the other Maybelline mascaras like lash blast, colossal, lash stiletto, and define-a-lash and none of these did this to me.If I uploaded a picture, you people would see how bad it is. It's a jaw-dropper. I can't even… Read Full Review

“Messy! Do not buy!!”

Written on: 22/10/2011

Maybelline Great Lash is so messy. The mascara is very wet and makes my lashes stick together. Also, I get more mascara on my eyelids than on my eyelashes. Everytime I blink (for several minutes after appying) macara comes off on my lids! It takes me FOREVER to apply this mascara just so that I don't look like Tammy Faye Baker. DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT!!!!… Read Full Review

“Deeply Disappointed”

Written on: 09/10/2011

This mascara is terrible. When you put it on it doesn't give your eyelashes volume at all, it just gives it tiny little clumps and makes them look thin and black. Plus, I got a MAJOR allergic reaction from this product. After reading other reviews, I can say I'm happy to know I'm not the only one who suffered from this mascara. I have a completely swollen eye lid, and skin swollen around the area of my eye. My eye is very sore and itchy. Plus, it takes forever for this stuff to come off! I can… Read Full Review
