Best for length: Eye Of Horus ‘Goddess’ Mascara.*
The first time I tried out this mascara, I wasn’t overly impressed. I hadn’t felt it did an awful lot to my lashes, so I cast it aside for a little while and only recently did I begin trying it out again. I’m so glad I did as the formula had thickened up slightly and I love the length it gives to my eyelashes. This is a good contender for a dupe of Benefit’s ‘They’re Real’, but if you ask me I’d go as far to say that it’s even better. I find it so hard to ‘find’ any of my eyelashes sometimes and I cant stand mascaras that aren’t just going to leave my eyelashes looking stumpy and short. The ‘Goddess’ mascara in black gives me an almost false lash effect look and doesn’t leave any clumps on those days when I go overboard when applying it. It The only problem I do have is that I wouldn’t use this mascara alone as it doesn’t give me enough volume, so I do need to add another mascara on top.
Best for volume: Rimmel Scandal’Eyes.
This is my all time favourite volumising mascara. I use this mascara in the darkest shade of ‘Extreme Black’ as always! It’s really affordable and has become an everyday mascara for me which I know I will repurchase time and time again. So, why do I love it so much? In my mascara routine, I will usually use this on top of a more lengthening product as it gives a lot of volume and ‘oomph’ to my lashes. The brush is pretty big but picks up lots of the product and I love the thickening dark black effect it gives. When this is teamed with black eyeliner I feel it’s at its best. Despite the brush being pretty hefty, it’s easy to apply to the bottom lashes and makes them look a lot more prominent. It does have a tendency to clump if too much is used in one go, so I do try to keep it to a minimum. It’s a pretty thick formula regardless so you don’t need an awful lot.
Best for both: Chanel Le Volume De Chanel Mascara.
That was a mouthful wasn’t it? I first tried this little beauty when I received a free sample from a website offering free samples of this mascara around a year ago and we were then reunited when I received another teeny tiny free sample with my Boots purchase. As you can guess, it’s pretty pricey so I was really pleased with a freebie! The mascara is amazing at giving both length and volume. This is the only mascara I can actually say is perfect to use alone, there’s no need to add any extra volume on top. It builds up good length, separates the lashes and volumises both my upper and lower lashes.
Best for bottom lashes: Maybelline ‘Great Lash’.
My mum gave me this mascara in a little gift set for Christmas and I have recently been trying it out. This mascara is a beauty classic which is very popular over in America. The brush is pretty slim and I haven’t quite found that this works amazingly on my upper lashes just yet. This is my top go to mascara for applying to my bottom lashes as bigger brushes can make it hard to pick up those teeny tiny bottom lashes which are hiding away. As the brush is smaller, it’s perfect for catching the smallest of lower lashes and gives good volume too.
