Drugstore Cult Classics: Maybelline Great Lash Mascara


Some products stand the test of time when it comes to popularity and recognition. Today, we will revisit one of the most popular mascaras to ever grace a makeup bag. 


I remember my mother using this mascara when I was a child. The bright, colorful packaging stuck out to me most. When I became a teenager and started wearing makeup (behind her back, of course, because my mother wasn’t even about that life lol), I distinctly remember going to the grocery store by our house and buying this. This product has been around for 40 years, y’all. FORTY YEARS and it’s still freaking awesome.

The Maybelline Great Lash is one of the few makeup products that have withstood the test of time. Just the fact that I was able to pick this up a while back (as in about two weeks ago) with no issues still amazes me. I know so many makeup lovers that share my fond sentiment of this mascara. Not only because it’s still a great mascara, but also because of the nostalgia it brings with it. I honestly have been wearing it almost daily since I repurchased it, and was pleasantly reminded of what I loved about it all those years ago. It still gives you amazing volume while conditioning your lashes, and I don’t find it to be flaky or smudgy on me.

Twenty years after the first time I tried this, I would still recommend it, especially for those just getting into wearing makeup. Have you ever tried this mascara? Let me know in the comments below, or tag me on Instagram (@theregulargirlreviews) with your favorite OG drugstore mascara.
