A mascara is one of those products that nobody is ever done looking for the next best thing. When you find a good powder or a good foundation, you stick with it for awhile but a mascara? Be honest, how many different mascaras have you tried? How many have you re bought because they were actually good?
Let me help you stop wasting your money with some of my tried and tested favourite mascaras.
Charlotte Tilbury Full Fat Lashes, £23
This mascara is one of those ones that is perfect for those of you who don’t like crazy, dramatic lashes. Sounds stupid, you want a mascara that does the most for you but this mascara does it, without giving you thick and unnatural looking lashes. With a brush that has 5 grooves it deposits enough mascara to the base of your lashes, so that it pushes the lashes up and out. The bristles themselves are so fine that they catch every lash ensuring fluttering, fluffy lashes. My favourite thing about this mascara is that it doesn’t smudge. I don’t know what is wrong with my eyes but the majority of mascaras that touch my eyes, fall down and smudge, this one doesn’t allowing it to last all day.
Lancome Hypnôse Volume-à-Porter, £25
I keep this as my ‘night out’ mascara. It is perfect for amping up those lashes to give a sexy and seductive flutter. I had used the Lancome Hypnôse Drama for years but I far prefer this mascara as it gives extra volume and glides on like a dream without feeling clumpy and doesn’t leave you with spidery lashes.
Max Factor False Lash Effect, £10.99
Again, another superb mascara for every day use. No flaking and no clumping provides amazing longwear which is perfect for during the day as no one likes to look in the mirror on their lunch break and look like they just watched The Notebook.
I love the brush on this mascara as it applies just the perfect amount of product and never goes overboard. It’s easy to remove as well, which is perfect for me as I have such sensitive eyes and vigorous removing of eye makeup is not good.
13.1ml – SO much product!
Estee Lauder Doublewear Zero Smudge Lengthening, £23
Boasting 15 hour wear this mascara is sure to survive all day with you. Delivering voluptuous lashes, this mascara always gives me the most amazing length with my lashes. I always use this mascara when I am going for a strong liner look, as the lashes lift above the liner line creating amazing Brigitte Bardot style eyes.
Clinique High Impact, £19
Last but certainly not least, Clinique’s High Impact mascara was one of the first premium mascaras I ever bought, I remember buying it in Boots and feeling like such a big girl not buying something like Miss Sporty. This mascara adds maximum volume while defining and lengthening. The brush and formula have been specifically designed to work together to create dramatic, thicker lashes.
