Lets talk about the one of the most important make up items that you wouldn't leave the house without, well maybe that's just me, having blonde eyelashes I do a really good impression of a new born piglet without my *eyes* on
I do like a bit of a full lash look, not manga or dead spider but thickish lashes.
This past 2 weeks I have bought 4 mascara's to test, well actually I lie as one was free with Cosmo mag this month.
Lets start with Boots no7 Intense volume, just a note all of these mascaras are in black.
No7 I have always thought of as a good mid range brand, this mascara is 7ml and around £10.00 if I remember correctly, it is a lovely quality, smooth consistency and I would say perfect for a less dramatic daytime look, I did take a couple of coats and I'm sure it would build up really well if I were not so impatient, staying power was great, it didn't flake and fall all over my cheeks by evening. Good brush in that it picked up even the tiniest lashes.
Next is New Cid, i-intense high intense volumising mascara, This was the freebie with Cosmo mag, gorgeous case, we love anything sleek and shiny. 12ml of product. nice brush but a very dry consistency, it looked as though it has fibres in it, really messy to apply and fell off within a couple of hours. I am actually going to try again with this one as it's a brand new to me, I have never heard of it, and want to be fair to a new product, watch this space for more news on this brand.
Next up we have an old faithful and still a very firm favourite of my daughters, Max Factor False Lash Effect. big chunky tube a generous 13.1ml of product and around £10.00, I had previously only used the waterproof version of this which I liked, but the non waterproof is even better for separation, thick creamy consistency, large brush easy to apply with one coat, 2 coats gives a really dramatic effect, fantastic staying power, I know this because I slept in it, don't you shake your head at me lol, we have all done it :)
And finally, last but by no means least , Maybelline the Colossal Go Extreme Volum. 9.5 ml of product and a really weird shape brush, However this weird shape is actually designed as an extreme volume double pump wand, well.....who knew ? anyway its bloody marvellous, a fab creamy consistency, one coat really does do the trick, if you were going out in the evening you could have lashes that almost touch your eyebrows ! great product and at the moment it's on offer in boots at 6.99 with buy another product at half price. gotta love Boots for offers !
If any of these tickle your fancy and you are inclined to do a bit of lash fluttery, they are in Boots Current offers available by clicking here
