The Best Mascaras On The Market.

Mascara is one of those things that I'm incredibly picky about. Having potentially the straightest lashes out there, unfortunately, any old mascara just won't cut it, so having tried a lot of them, I like to think I know a thing or two about the ones that are worth spending your hard earned money on.

The best for: essentially, everything (no, seriously)
Clarins Truly Waterproof Mascara (£21.50). So you may remember me discussing this in my recent post, here. Without a doubt, this is my all-time favourite - the cme de la cme of its kind. I can curl my lashes for two minutes straight, but when combined with most mascaras, five hours down the line I may as well have not even bothered. But this, this holds the curl perfectly and leaves my peepers looking exactly as they did before I stepped out of the house. It's truly magical.

The best for: fluttery lashes
Benefit Roller Lash Mascara (£19.50). Benefit are known for their mascaras, and there's no wonder after giving this little treat a try. If you're a fan of pretty, feminine lashes with a good amount of lift, you will seriously dig this. Plus, how damn pretty is the packaging? Head here to see it in action and for my full review.

The best for: serious 'oomph'
Benefit They're Real Mascara (£19.50). Yet another winner from Benefit, this particular offering is available in several different shades and is undoubtedly the one to pick up if you're heading out for a night on the tiles. Beefing up the lashes, it grabs them right from the root to give a statement look - no falsies required.

The best for: natural, lengthy lashes
Smashbox Full Exposure Mascara (£19.50). Since my Mum swears by this and she seriously rocks it in the lash department, I was very grateful when I was given a mini tube to try for Christmas. Full Exposure is ideal for those with slightly shorter lashes, as it really works to add length without looking too much. Whilst it doesn't add as much curl as the Clarins Truly Waterproof, this is still a good'n for everyday wear.

The best for: volume and separation 
Dior Diorshow Mascara (£24.50). This was one of the first high-end mascaras I ever sampled many moons back after snapping it up in Duty Free. It was only when a new tube found its way into my life recently that I remembered why I loved it so much. With revolutionary microfibres, the formula gives just the right amount of volume without compromising on the separation side of things. It also boasts a patent 'air-lock' wiper to keep the product from drying out, ensuring you get a fresh application each and every day. Definitely one I am happy to have back in my makeup collection.

Are you a fan of any of the above? Have I tempted you to try out any out? What are your go-to mascaras?

  4. I have a mini Benefit Roller Lash Mascara and I have been enjoying it lately, but I can't wear it when I have contact lenses in because my eyes are a little too watery, which is a shame. My all time favourite mascara is the Seventeen Doll'd Up it's amazing at lengthening you lashes :)
