For me mascara is an integral part of every make up routine, I feel naked without it and since I’ve never been good at applying falsies I’ve had to rely on mascara for every sort of look! Over the years I’ve tried and tested quite a few mascaras and I’ve got five which are my go-to’s. They help to create the lashes I want and are pretty much a fail safe!
01. MAC Extended Play Gigablack Mascara (£15)
This has been one of my favourite mascaras for the longest now, and I love it for a very specific reason – it looks amazing on bottom lashes! I know that for some people having a different mascara for their bottom lashes is somewhat unnecessary, but for me it is a must. This mascara is great at lengthening lashes and separating them leading to a beautifully defined lashes look!
02. Benefit Roller Lash (£19.50)
This mascara definitely lives up to expectations, it delivers a beautiful curl to lashes without the need of a lash curler and I really love how it helps to add volume to lashes! The short bristles on the brush really help to separate lashes give the appearance of really full eye lashes!
03. Benefit They’re Real (£19.50)
If you read my disappointing products post, you’ll know that I tried out the They’re Real primer and really didn’t like it but the mascara is a totally different playing field! I’ve found that it really does give me voluminous lashes, that look really luscious and thick, which I really love. However, it is a nightmare to remove!
04. Too Faced Lashgasm Mascara (£16)
This mascara is another defining mascara. It is really great for separating the lashes and also looks great when applied over a volumising mascara as it really separates out the lashes. This mascara is also really great for helping to define the bottom lashes, as it add a lot of length!
05. Too Faced Better Than Sex (£18)
No mascara list would be complete without this one! It is such an amazing mascara and really adds a tonne of volume to lashes. I find that as my lashes are quite short, if I (accidentally) apply too much they can clump together and begin to look a little spidery! To combat this I like to use a mascara like the roller lash to separate out my lashes again and help give tonnes of volume and definition!!
I really love to use different combinations of these mascaras, using one of the volumising mascaras with a lengthening one to help define the lashes further! I recognise that these mascaras are all high-end products and therefore rather expensive but for me I really do get my moneys worth and I find that they don’t dry out as quickly as my drugstore mascaras! If you have any mascara recommendations, please let me know as I’d be really interested in trying them out!!
Hope to see you around,
