Lou's Guide To : Mascara

by - April 25, 2016

Hey everyone, over the time I have been wearing makeup, I have tried and tested a few mascaras. So today, I thought I would talk about some of the mascaras I have tried and what I thought of them. I hope you enjoy this post, and I will see you again very soon!

The very first mascara I ever tried was Natural Collection Lash Definition Mascara. This is a thin wand , which makes it perfect for a first time mascara as it is petty easy application and you have less chance of poking your eyeball with it (hehe). Personally, I think it is a great first time mascara but isn't so great if you have been wearing make-up for a long time. However it would be perfect if you are just looking for a bottom lash mascara as, like I said, it has a thin wand and doesn't apply too much mascara at once. This is also pretty affordable as it usually retails at about £1.99. Also, it is in really small packaging so you could just slip into your bag, or wherever you want to take it.

Next, I tried Collection Lash Volumising Mascara. I wasn't a fan of this at all. It's wand was huge, and had no shape to it at all - kinda just a blob. When it went on, it didn't give any volume of length, just sort of stuck my lashes together. I really don't recommend this for anyone - unless you want to clump all of your lashes together. This retailed for £3.99, and I think the £1.99 one was actually better!

Then I got Maybelline Lash Sensational. A lot of people here on the internet rave about this so much, but I am going to have to disagree with them! Personally, I like my lashes to look quite natural, where as this clumps 5 lashes together (and kind of makes me look a bit like spongebob hehe) The product itself is also pretty clumpy. When I take the wand out of the bottle, it has clumps of mascara on it. The one thing I do like about this, is the wand. It is a curved shape - which makes it really easy application. This retails at about £., and it is probably my favourite out of the 3 so far.

Finally, I tried my all time favourite mascara Smashbox Full Exposure Mascara. I go this mascara in a set. I always ramble on about this so if you are interested in my thoughts on it click here.

I hope you all enjoyed this post, and I will see you all very very soon
Love Lou
