After last week's post on mascaras I wish I hadn't bought, I thought it was time to balance things up and share some of the good ones with you!
YSL False Lash effect - yes, this is expensive, but it does everything I want it to. It gives great volume and length, can be built up for a subtle or dramatic look and it doesn't flake, smudge or melt. My holy grail mascara, marred only by the fact that it seems to dry out pretty quickly. £23.50
Lord and Berry Scuba Extreme* - If I need a waterproof mascara, this is always the one I reach for. It gives excellent length, some good volume and really doesn't budge. It removes quite easily for a waterproof mascara, but don't let that fool you, it won't let you down! £12
GOSH Growth mascara* - GOSH mascaras seem to be pretty good all round, but this one goes to the top of my list as it contains a serum that actually encourages your lashes to grow while you wear it. It is a little wet for the first week or so, but after that, two coats will give nice volume without a clumpy result.
Max Factor Masterpiece Max - I used this for a long time before making the jump to the YSL mascara and found it offered excellent lash definition, a little volume and no clumping. The waterproof version is also pretty good, but did have a tendency to be a tiny bit smudgy. £9.99
Bare Minerals Lash Domination* - Bare Minerals was never a brand I though of for mascara, but I've been really impressed by this. It gives good volume to lashes in two coats, and doesn't clump. I like the definition it gives my lashes, and is long wearing. The only downside I've found is a tiny bit of smudging when applying, but nothing more throughout the day. £16
What's your top mascara choice?
