Maybelline Great Lash mascara isn't bringing greatest to my lashes



Maybelline Maybe I'm not born with it.

Or maybe it's Maybelline.

Either way friends, I need your help. Here's the deal: Every so often, I spot various versions of Maybelline mascara on those best-makeup-you-could-possibly-ever-own lists. Even some celebs who can afford way more expensive products herald this veteran drugstore brand. I had tried it before without loving it, but there's a recession and CVS is closer than the mall, so I decided to give a basic pink tube of Great Lash Washable Mascara another whirl.

I wish I'd saved my six bucks.

The wand leaves all sorts of black goop on my lashes. The mascara bleeds in the heat. It does separate my lashes in a pretty way, but I still have to deal with the first two problems.

Am I missing some secret greatness? Does someone want to set me straight, or have you had similar "Great Lash" experiences? Most importantly, can someone please recommend to me their can't-live-without mascara brand? I don't have enough petty cash to keep testing stinkers.
