Best Mascara

no7 mascaraOk, so over the years I have tried loads and loads of different mascaras and to be honest, most of them were ok some of the time, some of them were awful and I’d say one or two of them are probably the best mascara I’ve ever tried!

My favourite go-to everyday mascara is Boots No7 Extreme Length Mascara. It doesn’t clump and stays put pretty much all day. It definitely makes my eyelashes look longer but in a natural way – in other words it doesn’t look as if I’m wearing false eye-lashes. I’m not a falsies sort of woman so this suits me right down to the ground. I saw over on Helena’s Blog that she’s a fan of the No7 Extreme Length Mascara too and to be honest I’m not surprised. What’s not to like? It’s without doubt, one for the best mascara category!

Clinique High Impact Waterproof MascaraI’ve just come back from holidays where I found that Clinique High Impact Waterproof Mascara is without doubt the best waterproof mascara I’ve ever used. Even though I had my eye-lashes tinted before I went, I was still popping on a bit of mascara in the mornings before setting myself up at the pool for the day. I know, I know …… why was I bothering? Well I’m quite fair and without mascara I genuinely don’t look as if I’ve got any eyelashes as they really are so blonde. Call me vain but hey, I’m no spring-chicken and take all the help I can! My Clinique Waterproof Mascara didn’t run once and only came off if I used either make-up remover wipes suitable for waterproof mascara or my usual eye-make-up remover.

Maybelline Waterproof MascarI actually bought Maybelline The Colossal Volum’ Express Waterproof Mascara first and I’m so glad that I tried it out in the week before I went away. How on earth Maybelline can call it waterproof when it wouldn’t even stay on with the usual everyday wear! Ok granted, it was a hot week and I suppose there could have been a bit of sweating but waterproof mascara which can’t even handle warm weather sweating, is hardly waterproof. If it’s not smudge-proof, how can they call it waterproof? I’ve never had ‘panda eyes’ so bad as when I was wearing the Maybelline Waterproof Mascara – it’s possibly the worst mascara I’ve ever tried, in fact!

So there you have it – the best mascara and the worst mascara!

In a nutshell, I'm a Mum to three gorgeous daughters and two step-sons who are gradually making their own lives and leaving Mr. C and I plenty of time to enjoy life just as a couple again. I'm a big fan of Afternoon Tea & Corrie and hate, with a vengeance, violence in films! I love reading 'proper' books though I concede that my birthday Kindle was brilliant on holidays.
