Mascaras I have tried or would like to try...

Hey guys,
In my post 'over hyped and underwhelmed' I mentioned Maybelline Colossal Lash Mascara as an item I felt didn't live up to it's hype and I got a response from someone thanking me for saving them from buying it. I love helping people save money by telling them what I feel is not worth it's price tag but I think that the whole fun of finding a holy grail product is the experimenting- buying and trying lots of crappy formulations before stumbling across an absolute gem- sticking to it for a few months before getting bored and repeating the whole process. Anyway the point of me saying this is that something that worked for me may not for you and vice versa so I never want any one of my subscribers to feel obliged to rush out and buy a product simply because I gave it a good review. Anyway that having been said my post today is four mascaras I have loved and one I would like to try. Just before I start I just want to say I like the natural look- not a big fan of spider lash for those of you who love that kind of thing
=( Sorry!

Trucco Double body mascara

I just want to say that this was one of my first ever mascaras! I am not really sure where you can get this from. I got it as a freebie with a Sebastian shampoo and conditioner (which, incidentally I hated but the mascara was a love <3)
Lookfantastic. com is where I got it from. I love this so much- it's creamy, dark, doesn't flake or clump and it lenghtens nicely. It lasted me AGES though so if you like to change mascaras all the time it's gonna be difficult.

CHANEL inimitable

I read so many good reviews about this and it was recommended it me a lot of times so I finally decided to get my mits on it. It was £21.50 *gulp* but I love it. It comes in the chic CHANEL packaging and lenghtens well. If you love 'Spider Lash' effect then I wouldn't recommend this because it lenghtens but the lashes look really natural- which is 1/2 the reason I love this.

Clinique high impact mascara

Ok, this is a tricky one. I know a lot of people who hate this but I love it. I personally though that it was great- smooth and the end effect was beautifully even BUT there were a few blobs initially which had to be corrected using my lash separator brush. Also I had to give this one the oxygen treatment to get it to behave but I really liked the end effect so I am willing to look past it's flaws.

Benefit Bad Gal lash mascara

Anyone who knows me knows that I love Benefit. I love their counters, I love their products and I love their packaging. This was another love of mine and it was my latest mascara and I have just finished it off. The brush is huge and has a really specific shape- something that MAC copied in their latest mascara ( I HATE all MAC mascaras). Anyway, there's not really much to say now, great product, I love it, I would definitely recommend this to anyone.


Urban Decay Big Fatty Lash Mascara

I have had my eye on this beauty for quite a while now but I have never got round to actually getting it. Now that my Bad Gal is finished I might just grab this off the shelf. It has Castor oil in it- something that is rumored to improve the condition of lashes. I have read some reviews on it- so all that's left is to try it. Will be posting a review soon.

Until next time...
Lots of love

  1. To tell you the complete truth, I really want to rush out and try Urban Decay Primer Potion and the urban decay Mascara you mentioned. I have had my eye on it for a while.

  2. I know what you mean. Lots of beauty gurus use the primer potion but I am determined to finish off my Benefit stay don't stray before moving on...
