REVIEW: Maybelline Great Lash Limited Edition Color Mascaras

As I have said previously, I love Maybelline mascaras.  They are one of my favorites, even over higher-end, department store mascaras.  Also, if you have followed my blog or any other social media venue, it is no secret that purple and blue are my two favorite colors. So it goes without saying that when I saw the latest display of Maybelline color mascaras at my local Walgreens, that I jumped at the purple and blue.   
I have been looking for a vibrant blue and purple eye liner as well as a mascara for ages.  So have I found the mascara I have been looking for? Let's See...

As you see the brush is the standard Great Lash brush. The colors on the brushes are vibrant enough, but how about on the lashes?


I started with 2 coats of Pop of Purple. And although not the same vibrancy as on the display, you can see the purple.  But I wanted more...

So I decided to try it with a white lash primer.  Thinking of the same that I do with polishing my nails a bright neon, I use a white under coat.  So here is Pop of Purple with Lash Primer (Sephora Perfecting Lash Primer).  A little more color, but this is with indoor lighting. So let's try it with the intense lighting of an OTT light...

Bamm!!! Pop of Purple with Lash Primer under Ott Light. I see the purple, but still not at the intensity level as advertised on the display.

Next was Blink of Blue. Much like the Pop of Purple, you can see the color but still not as vibrant of the display because I don't know about you, but I don't walk around with an overhead OTT Light...LOL!


I tried the same primer trick. So here is Blink of Blue layered over my Sephora Perfecting Lash Primer.
  

Lastly, here is Blink of Blue under my OTT Light...BAMM!!!


So what is my opinion of these latest mascaras?  While I was really excited about seeing the colored mascaras, I would love to see these colors more vibrant and with one of the other Maybelline mascara products, like Falsies.  Great Lash, when compared to some of the more recent Maybelline products, just does not give me what I want in a mascara. I am going to try layering these with some of my favorite mascaras to see if I get the look I am aiming for and a look closer to the display. 

Have you spotted these latest Maybelline Limited Edition Color Mascaras yet? If so which colors did you jump on?  I think I will get the teal since my town's NFL Team's (Jacksonville Jaguar) colors are teal and black.
BTW: Please excuse the tired eyes. I was so tired but really wanted to get this post done ASAP. LOL!

Grace, Peace, & Blessings.

@Nail Art Designs. Thanks for visiting. Yes, I jumped at them when I first saw them.

@Patty1042002. Thanks for visiting. I agree, I was less than amazed. I wanted to see much more color payout and would have preferred the Falsies formulation over Great Lash.

I have been looking for a purple mascara for months. Though they weren't exactly what you were looking for, they will likely do it for me. I am actually want a more subtle purple like this. I want to line the top and bottom rims with a similar colored liner pencil and wear the mascara to match.

How much are they and do they sell matching eyeliner

@Anonymous, I purchased mine at Walgreens and I think I paid $5.49 but they were B1G1 50% off. I have since seen them in Walmart also. So I would check around for better prices. Thanks for visiting.

I think these would look better for someone that has blonde eyelashes, the color would probably pop more because they wouldn't have the black base.
I haven't bought them yet, but I probably won't thanks to your post. Thank you for your review.
