As I sit down to write this blog, I have a rather large grin on my face as this is my favourite subject to speak about- MASCARAS. To say I have a little obsession about Mascaras is a big fat understatement! I decided to share My Top 5 Drugstore/Affordable Mascaras, as the Luxury ones have their place but there are so many good affordable ones out there, why spend so much!
My first one is Maybelline the Falsies Volume Mascara 7.99 such a cult classic, this must be my third one I am onto. I would say I have normal length lashes and thickness, it contains Keratin which builds and when I apply this it really gives volume and length. My lashes look remarkable like I am wearing a subtle flash lash. For the price point I would give it a whirl if you are in the market.
My second mascara is Maybelline Lash sensational 7.99. Another Maybelline but these guys just know how to make affordable products well. Our first Layer-Reveal Brush captures even the tiniest lashes and volumises the look of longer lashes for a layered, multiplied lash look. Now for me this Mascara is all about the brush it has layers to it so it captures even the tiniest lashes which helps to volumize and lengthen.
My Third Mascara is Max factor False Lash Effect 10.99. I stumbled across this at our local Boots. It was on offer and when something say ‘False Lash Effect’ I am hooked. The first thing you notice when you open the mascara is the smell. To say it smells a bit chemically is an understatement! If you can get past the smell and take a look at the brush head it has tiny little spikes that are small at one end and get longer and longer as it gets towards the end. This is a neat design because when you wiggle the brush at the root towards the tips it will coat every lash to give that fuller lash effect. This is another great formulation and brush combo that is something I have bought time and time again.
My fourth mascara is the L’ Oreal False Lash Telescopic 10.99. I think by now you can see a running theme, I LOVE False Lash Mascaras. It is because these particular formulation+brush head all seem to tick the right boxes. The brush head once again has these little spikes on. This head though is long and has a square, flatter edge to it. I found that this mascara did the same as the others but the longer brush just worked better for me as I have bigger eyes so that it covered more of my lashes than the Max Factor one. Once again the smell is a little offensive but to me it just a minor thing in my opinion.
My fifth and final mascara is Rimmel Accelerator Endless Mascara Growth Lash Complex 7.99. There is more to this mascara than meets the eye. The brush itself is different, Rimmel’s advanced ultra lengthening formula delivers up to 80% longer looking lashes instantly. Used daily over 30 days, our innovative Grow-Lash Complex helps to strengthen, renew and nourish lashes, promoting natural lash growth to create lashes that appear fuller, lusher and up to 117% longer. So this is what the mascara boasts it does and it DOES! I have noticed over the time of using this mascara that my lashes were slightly longer and suffered less breakage. The brush head is similar to Max Factor False Lash Effect but just a little longer. I use this mainly for my lower lashes as it grabs even the tiniest lash and will pop this on to strengthen my top lashes.
