It’s All In The Eyes

Like most beauty bloggers I have more than one mascara on the go at any one time. At this moment in time I have 5 on the go. I am trying my best not to open anymore – I do have a few lined up ready for when one of these is ready for the bin. I am always looking for that mascara that does it all, but I think that is an urban myth. We often need our mascara to do different things like lengthen, give volume, define and sometimes we need a waterproof one. So that’s my excuse when the hubby asks ‘Don’t you have enough of those already?’ I reply yes but this one is different :o)

I will run through them individually letting you know how I like them and if I will repurchase.

Lash Glamour Extreme Lengthening Mascara

First up is a Bobbi Brown mascara sample I received when I purchased my Bobbi Brown Creamy Concealor its the Lash Glamour Extreme Lengthening Mascara It’s a great mascara for really separating your lashes and adding a good amount of length to them. It’s not the best lengthening mascara I’ve used but I have so say it is my favourite mascara at the moment. You can wear this mascara all day and there is no fall out at all. I really like the look of defined lashes and this is amazing at achieving that look. I will be purchasing the full size when this runs out. The full size is £18 for 6ml

17 Peep Show Mascara

The 17 Peep Show Mascara I first purchased when it was released a few months ago, this is a mascara that’s great for giving your lashes that really thick and full look. It isn’t a mascara that lasts all day on me, I tend to get a little flaking and fall out with is one as It’s packed full of lengthening fibres. But that said I do like it and this is my second tube and I will repurchase again as the price is great and I do like the really full effect it gives my stumpy lashes. The full size is £6.29 for 9ml

Soap and Glory Thick & Fast Mascara

The Soap and Glory Thick & Fast Mascara was a magazine freebie a few months back I wouldn’t say this was a great mascara. The brush is huge and I tend to get the product everywhere. It does make your lashes thick but I find the formula too thick and gloopy and it tends to clump on my lashes and that’s not really a look I like. So I won’t be repurchasing this one. Full size is £10.00 for 6ml

No7 Exceptional Definition Mascara

One of my favourite Mascaras over the past 18 months has been the No7 Exceptional Definition Mascara. I have repurchased at least 4 of these. I love the brush it grabs every lash and really separates them. It also adds a good amount of volume without being too dramatic. I find it to be a really good everyday option. The formula is quite dry and doesn’t flake. This will be a mascara I repurchase for the foreseeable future. Full size for £11.00 for 7ml

Covergirl Lashblast 24 hour Waterproof Mascara

 I received this Covergirl Lashblast 24 hour Waterproof Mascara in a swap I did with Casey. This is the only waterproof mascara I own. I tend to only wear it on a night out. I find this formula to be a little runny but as I use it it’s drying out & that’s how I like it. There is no fall out with this and the wand although its odd-looking it really easy to use and it coats each lash really well. If I could get it in the UK I would repurchase. Just one thing, you will need a heavy-duty eye makeup remover as this mascara is tough to remove.

    My favourite mascara is Cover Girl’s original Lash Blast (orange tube)! I’ve never tried the 24hr one…

  3. My fav is Max Factor False Lash Effect though theres a bourjous one I really like (can’t remember the name off of the top of my head) which has a spoonie brush. I like Peep Show as an every day thing, that and it’s my only brown mascara, it doesn’t give too much of an effect on my but my eyes do look a little wider, so yay. Got it when you got a free quad with it. :D As for the soap and glory.. the brush picked up naff all and the tube dried out pronto. Useless. But I think it’s because it was manufactured cheaply and probably isn’t like the real thing. Not good – a lot of people got it from the mag and said it was crap. The benefit bad girl lash I got in a mag before is still going.. last time I checked and I like it. I gotta admit I like the big brushes it and the soap and glory one have. I may actually just keep the brushes when I eventually throw the tubes away and give them a good wash to use with other mascaras!
