Too Many Mascaras

I did a post a last October about the mascaras I was using, I think most of those have been and gone and I have a tin full of new ones. I seem to have so many on the go at any given time. I tell myself that they each do something different.

Mascara Mascara Line up

Avon Mascara

Avon Super Magnify Mascara – This has the weirdest brush with smallest bristles & at first I thought it was too small to do any thing with but I since realised that this mascara gives the most amazing length to my lashes. Don’t expect volume with this mascara because its not going to happen. It makes my lashes look so natural, healthy and very very long. I really like this.

Covergirl Mascara

Covergirl Flamed out Waterproof Mascara in Very Black Blaze – This is a nice mascara if you just want to use one coat and be done. It puts alot of product on the lashes very quickly. It is very black and gives the eyes drama not length but great thickness. I use this most days.

Barry M Mascara

BarryM Lash Vegas Mascara in Black* – This has a very wet formula and I found it quite messy to apply. The brush wasn’t great at grabbing my lashes either. If you like the look of thick black lashes, almost spider effect then you might like this. But I wasn’t bowled over by it.

Clarins Mascara

Clarins Wonder Perfect Mascara in 01 Wonder Black – I love the brush on this (I only have a small sample with purchase tube) but it seems to be lasting for ages. The brush is dense and quite big so it grabs all your lashes in one go. It adds volume and length, i have to say this mascara makes my lashes look WOW amazing. I am going to buy the full size.


Soap & Glory Thick and Fast Mascara in Super Jet Black – I really didn’t like this mascara at fist but when the formula dried up it redeemed it’s self a little as I stared to use it more. I often use this as a base coat and add another mascara on top. It’s not the blackest in colour and now that its almost coming to an end I wouldn’t repurchase.

Covergirl MascaraCovergirl Lash Blast Luxe in 855 Black Emerald – I seem to have a thing for Covergirl Mascara. I just really like their formula and they last for ages. They never flake on me either. This one is lovely it gives amazing volume to my lashes and helps keep my lashes curled. This colour has a slight shimmer in – but you can’t really see that on the lashes. I also like the plastic brushes on these I find them easy to work with.

Revlon Mascara

Revlon Grow Luscious Mascara – LOVE LOVE LOVE this. I have to say right off the bat that this is my most used mascara out of the bunch. I really like the natural look it gives my lashes and it makes them look really long and separated. This tube has lasted me a while and it’s not dried out or flakey. It’s a really amazing mascara and I’d buy it over and over again.

Benefit Bad Gal Mascara

Benefit BADgal – Sample Size, not a huge fan of this. I used to hate it and then try it again a few weeks later. I find it messy and it always ends up really flaking and landing on my under eye area. Not a fan of this at all.

Rimmel Mascara

Rimmel Lash Accelerator Endless 001 Black – It took me a few attempts to master the brush on this, as it is so bendy. I do like it and it gives crazy length to my lashes. I would say build it up slowly otherwise you will end up with clumpy lashes. This lasts well on me and its another mascara I reach for alot.



Covergirl Lash Blast 24 hour Mascara – This is my favourite mascara in my collection. Its so black on the lashes and the formula is perfect so you can build up to quite a dramatic look. I like how this separates and creates length. My lashes look almost false when I am wearing this. It gets 10/10 from me, I wouldn’t be without a tube in my collection

Have you used any of these mascaras? I would also love o hear any recommendations for black mascaras that give good length to the lashes.

*I received the BarryM Mascara at a bloggers event and I am under no obligation to use or review it.

Draw The Line

Rimmel Sandaleyes Liners

A few weeks ago I received a Boots gift card for my birthday which I quickly spent on makeup. Shock horror. Boots were having their 3 for 2 across all makeup items so I picked up a fair few things 3 of those being some Scandaleyes Waterproof Kohl Kajal Eyeliners. These are fabulous. I had wanted to try them for a while and had seen some really good reviews about the Nude colour, I was excited to try them out.

 Scandaleyes Waterproof Kohl Kajal Eyeliner in Black, Nude and Bronze 

I’ve always been a huge fan of coloured eyeliner (I went back and got the blue and silver ones too) – even if it looks a little 80’s. I’ve found these waterproof Rimmel Scandaleyes Kohls really do stay put all day and I’m a devil for rubbing and messing with my eyes throughout the day and these stay put regardless. Rimmel claim they will withstand ‘tears, sweat, humidity’ and they don’t lie. These are stubborn and I was shocked with how well they lasted esp as they’re only £3.99.

They glide on the eye with minimum effort and they do not drag at all. They’re creamy and all of the ones I have tried (5 in total) are all really pigmented without having to go over and over the same line. They are an inexpensive way to get a flash of colour that will stay all day. Perfect for me as I hate to reapply when I am out and rarely carry much makeup with me .

The nude colour is perfect for the waterline to brighten tired eyes and make them look bigger. The black is a great bold black it’s really quite dark and that deep colour transfers well on to the lid or waterline. I also like the bronze shade for when I wear a neutral eye and it blends so well. It has a slight shimmer to it. Not glittery but when the light hits it looks almost metallic it’s really pretty.

These eyeliners come in 7 shades from a classic black to a gorgeous silver. I highly recommend you try to pick these up esp when on offer. Full price they are £3.99 from Boots. Such a total bargain. Have you tried any of these Rimmel eyeliners? How did you find them?
