So I guess now I am the Blue Mascara Queen or something because I was sent another blue mascara to review. 🙃
I will review the Maybelline Great Lash Mascara in Royal Blue, based on its description and also compare it to a competitor brand blue mascara. For testing purposes, I will not be using lash primer before applying either brand of blue mascara.
Maybelline Great Lash Mascara conditions as it thickens with its classic lash-building brush. Its lash-doubling formula glides on smoothly and makes it easy to get a full lash look. This Great Lash Mascara allows you to build volume until the desired lash look is achieved without clumps and globs.
With just a couple of coats, the blue is quite subtle, more of a blue black or midnight blue. For a true royal blue, I needed to apply several coats of this blue mascara. With the competitor brand blue mascara, I only needed two coats for a pop of color.
As mentioned, this Maybelline mascara comes with a classic lash-building brush that will continue to build volume until the desired lash look is achieved. With several coats to get the true royal blue color, it did build noticeable volume compared to wearing no mascara. With the competitor brand blue mascara, however, I was able to build more volume in just two coats.
I did not experience any clumps or globs with the Great Lash mascara, even after applying several coats. You really can continue to build volume (and color) until you achieve the desired lash look, as the consistency of this formula is thin. It is also suggested to not let the mascara dry between coats.
Maybelline New York Great Lash Mascara in Royal Blue is $3-$5, depending on retailer. Other competitor brand blue mascaras range from $6-$35.
Maybelline New York Great Lash Mascara in Royal Blue is true to its description. However, several coats are needed to build volume and a true royal blue color, but it does so without clumps and globs.
While I prefer the volume I achieve with only two coats of mascara with the competitor brand, I like how I can get two different looks (subtle blue black lashes and royal blue lashes) depending on how many coats I apply with the Maybelline New York Great Lash Mascara in Royal Blue.
While I received the Maybelline New York Great Lash Mascara in Royal Blue complimentary from Influenster (thanks Maybelline and Influenster!), all opinions are my own.
