I love mascaras. Mascaras lift your eyes and makes them pop! I always feel that my eyes are naked without it as they can totally change your look.
I have had a stash of mascaras which I have used and finally I can write about them! Some good, some not so good.
Tanya Burr Cosmetic Selfie Lash has a rubber wand made of small rubber bristles. The brush is small and slightly rounded but flexible and is easy to work with. It elongates the lashes and you can build up the mascara for a more dramatic look. It lasted for quite a long time during the day and only at the end of the day did I notice some slight smudging. I did like it and very reasonably priced too.
No7 Extreme Length Waterproof Mascara is the only waterproof mascara I tried. The wand is a simple and straight lade from a rubber material and is quite spiky. It separates and elongates your lashes very nicely. It stayed quite well for the day and to remove it you need to use waterproof eye make up remover. A very good everyday mascara.
Covergirl Lashblast Fusion Water resistant has a small, fat rubber wand with small bristles. It was not water resistant at all. It gives a natural wet look which I didn’t like and it gave me no volume or length. I was not very impressed with this mascara so a big let down.
Max Factor Dark Magic Instant Dramatic Volume Mascara has a strange wavy bristle wand. I presume it was designed to give the mascara more volume to your lashes. It did leave the lashes with a heavy, dramatic look. Obviously it didn’t separate the eyelashes. A downside for me was that it dried up in the tube quite quickly. It was an OK mascara but I won’t be buying it again.
YSL Mascara Volume Effet Faux Cils has a small, slightly rounded bristled wand. This gave a beautiful look to the lashes, volume and length were fantastic. It built up easily with the easy to use wand. It was effortless to get the ideal look for my eyes. The stand out mascara I used over the time.
The YSL was excellent and the best but then so it should be. The Tanya Burr and the No 7 for the tighter budget were very good too use and great everyday products.
Thankfully we are all different and every person has a different view on what the mascara should do for their eyes.
