I feel like I need to write about this as it was the first mascara I ever bought! Must have had a 6th sense it’d be good as it looks a bit basic on the shelf, and I don’t think anyone’s expecting miracles for £5.99, but I find this is the ideal base coat and it has been in my makeup bag ever since. The brush is nice and simple, it separates and coats, and it does build very nicely if you just want to use one mascara, but this takes a lot longer than when you use it in combination with the following:
Where’s that heart eyes emoji.. This is a game changer mascara, I thought I’d hate that thin brush so much when I first unwrapped it, but it’s so effective. It’s almost like each thin side acts as a bit of a well for the mascara so you can load a lot of product on to your lashes, and the comb keeps it from just ending in one giant mascarad lash mess. However, I do find this is extremely wet when you first purchase, so I normally buy one, try it once and think what is this nightmare, throw it back in the makeup drawer, and then two weeks later will come back to it again and it is the perfect consistency.
Oh WOW. This is unreal, I’m so sad it’s discontinued, so I’ve stocked up while I can. If you have the time and the patience, this builds seriously lovely, seriously volumised, seriously separated and seriously fluffy lashes. It’s heavenly but it does take a long time to achieve, and the first few coats can feel a bit like you’re getting nowhere but persevere and you’ll reap the rewards. The only downside is the brush, as it’s a bit on the large side it’s quite hard to avoid getting mascara all over your lids when you’re in a rush. So if I’m only using this I whack loads on, clean up lids with bioderma on a cotton bud, then do a quick liquid liner on the outer corners and am good to go.
A very good all rounder. I like this one in the mix as it just adds a little something more when used with the others in combo. The brush is good, it’s very black and quite thick and a good consistency, very good for doing what it says on the tin, but I think x5 volume might be a little excessive a claim, maybe x3 😉
I know some people think using 4 different mascaras is ridiculous but I am mad about eyelashes, so after a good curl with my Shu Uemura eyelash curlers, then coats and coats of the above, these are the results:
