We want to be able to cry whilst watching Titanic and still look glamorous, get caught in the rain without getting panda eyes and have 1-inch lashes that look like falsies but aren’t. Our mascara should stay put from morning till night, but come off with one wipe of cleanser!
Choosing the right one is essential as it can result in the difference between having bambi-esque eyes or scary tarantula eyes. Whatever effect you want to achieve, longer, fuller and curled or thicker, volumised and bold we are here at glamgeek to help with the task in hand.
"I use this mascara on my bottom lashes. I have had difficulties finding a mascara that will stay on my bottom lashes and not wander onto my lower eye. This product does not budge! It is great at defining your upper lashes too and (although waterproof) is easy to clean with eye-makeup remover. "
"This is a more natural mascara in my opinion. It adds definition and a slight curl. Lasts all day. I use it every day."
"First time using this product I wasn"t so sure but then I used it a couple more times and it grow on me it made my lashes look so much bigger and look more healthier to other people"s did and it made them look more like they were down by a professional This mascara have been so much of a life saver "
"This mascara makes lashes look a lot fuller, thicker and longer. The black is a good colour black and it just opens up your eyes. It doesn"t clump to much and you don"t need to put much on, the brush easily separates all your lashes and definitely one of my favourite makeup buys."
"This has got to be the best mascara I have ever used. I normally get bored of mascaras after a while but I haven"t with this one, it gives my eyelashes amazing volume and they look very long when applied! I think I won"t be trying another mascara for a while, 100% worth the price! "
"for me its a must have makeup its just wow the girly packaging is so cuuuute it makes my lashes long with a big volume like a false lashes effect in loveeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee "
"This ladies and gentlemen, is my holy grail mascara. I got sent a tester and at first I was on the fence about it because high end mascaras don"t do much for me (I have short lashes) but I tried it anyway and woah. Length and volume was added straight away! So many compliments and people asking where my "fake" eyelashes are from but nope. I highly recommend this to anyone!"
"This is my go to mascara. I have naturally long lashes, but this adds both definition and volume. I have had many compliments using this product, suggesting my lashes are false! I use eyelash curlers first to give lift to my lashes and then i apply two coats. It lasts all day, but does somethimes it smudge a little. I lovely the packaging and it lasts a long time, so value for money!"
"Swear by this mascara! I use it every day and it makes my lashes look absolutely amazing. Never clumpy and applies so well! Lasts so long and doesn"t dry out. Would 100% recommend. "
"The brush is round, tapered and has lots of dense rubber bristles.I love the volume and length it gives while keeping your lashes nicely separated. Another bonus is that the formula is really, really dark which I love. "
"It definitely makes my eyelashes look longer, doesn"t make a mess, and it"s easy to apply. It"s also clump free :) but I don"t recommend it if you also want thick eyelashes."
"This is one of the only mascaras I"ve tried that truely gives me astonishing length. It separates my lases well, gives a good coat and lengthens them without clumping. It looks really natual and the formula is great! It does exactly what is says on the tube and I love it so much!"
"This mascara was reccomended on an online article by Lou Teasdale so I thought I"d try it out. This is an amazing mascara that makes your lashes comes out thick and dark and it doesn"t take too much to make them like that. However, sometimes they can go slightly clumpy, but this is just on the odd occasion. I"d definitely reccomend to people though and it is a great price too!"
"I have tried every mascara from the bargain ranges to the high end ranges and will always come back to this. It doesn"t clump. It lengthens and volumises my lashes. It never smudges or leaves flaky bits under my eyes. I wear two coats for work and three coats for a night out. Love it!"
"I first bought this product less than a year ago and really loved it. I unfortunately lost it so had to buy a new one. It really lengthens your lashes however it does come out quite clumpy for me. personally, I don"t like clumpy looking lashes so I haven"t used it since.The mascara is worth the price if your looking for a cheap go to."
"This mascara is definatly a go-to mascara. Over the past 2 years since my first purchase of this mascara I have tried many others and have always gone back to this product. Soley for the reason that it makes my eyelashes sand out with the right consistancy or product. It isn"t too runny and it isn"t too clumpy and always makes my eyes look a whole lot better. I swear by it!"
"I love this. Great volume, great length yet my lashes still look and feel soft and natural. One coat for everyday - two coats for a night out. I actually use a brush from an old bottle of this when applying any other mascara. This looks good after a long day at work or a long night dancing. "
"I love this mascara! I use it daily after using my No7 heated eyelash curler and this mascara makes my eyelashes look beautiful, they aren"t clumped and make my eyelashes look like fake ones! It dries extremely quickly and the volume of my eyelashes increase dramatically!"
Lash Sensational Lash Multiplying Mascara by Maybelline
"this mascara is just all right for me I expect more than the result I have had it does not separate properly my lashes well not the best mascara for me "
"With its curved brush it allows you to easily reach the inner and outer corners and get right down to the roots. Its perfect consistency coats and separates the lashes without clumping, but the over all effect is more lengthening than volumising. Lasts all day without flaking or smudging. Currently on intro offer at Boots for £5.99, it performs and transforms as well as brands Ive paid £25 for."
"I really like this mascara and small brush for you bottom lashes is amazing! the top one is ok but not the best, will definitely buy again!"
"This is the best mascara I have ever used, it makes your eyelashes look so big its unbelievable. I have recommended this to many of my friends and they say that it is an amazing product to use. Since I have tried this I never picked up another mascara. It lasts a long amount of time, but it really depends on how often you use it."
Masterpiece Waterproof Mascara by Max Factor
"I bought this mascara as it was on offer. I wouldn"t buy this again as for me it didn"t give the volume I wanted from a mascara. Saying that it is definitely waterproof even a little tricky to get off. "
"This product is the best out of all the Max Factor range, i really liked it and it didn't smuge when i went swimming."
"I like this mascara a lot, its my go to eye product. It doesn"t have to much product on the brush - this means its buildable so you can decide how long or full you want your eyelashes that day. It doesn"t clump either and Its very easy to remove at the end of the day! "
"This product doesn"t give you any clumps in your lathes and is really nice on! I love the Rimmel wake me up range and this has to be my favourite out of all the products in the range! The packaging is a bit bulky though. I"ve been using the Clinique high impackt mascara and have struggled to find a cheaper version of it! This one is perfect though! "
"I received this mascara as a tester gift at Christmas. It was a great try-out and once the sample has run out, I will definitely be re-buying. It is very defining and the brush is curved, making it easy to apply. The only downside is that after a few hours, it needs re-applying as it begins to fade from the bottom lashes and it can sometimes clump up if the excess isn"t wiped off beforehand. "
"This mascara gives you really volumised lashes. It makes them appear fuller and I will definitely be buying this again once this runs out. It"s great to give the illusion of false lashes and really elongates natural lashes. I would definitely recommend this. It doesn"t smudge or even run out in the rain but it does take a while to take off. I would advise using coconut oil to remove it."
"I swear by this mascara! It"s not clumpy but it"s a wonderful thickness adds length and curl. The packaging is beautiful and the brush is a natural shape! I can"t flaw this mascara if I tried! Amazing "
"Roller Lash by Benefit Cosmetics is one of the best mascaras that I have ever purchased in a long time. This product is really worth the money and works wonders with your lashes, the product lifts lashes and visibly curls them too for long defined, natural looking lashes! The packaging of Roller Lash is unique and different, which is good to grab peoples attention. I would recommend this product! "
"I love this when I want to achieve long and defined lashes that don"t look spidery. It gives a good amount of volume due to the large brush but still individually separates lashes. It lasts all day and is my current go-to everday mascara."
"This mascara is my saviour... I love it. However, when I bought it I didn"t expect much from it as I had never heard of it before. I use this everyday under the L"Oreal manga eyes as this had the perfect brush to split you eyelashes and Miss Manga has the perfect length to it. I really do recommend this mascara if you like your eyelashes separate but long."
"I love this product it keeps my lashes in a good condition and helps to keep my mascara on all day !!"
"I"ve used this product for close to two years now and love it. You apply it just like a mascara before using your own mascara. There is a noticeable difference between when I use it and when I don"t! It gives you fuller, thicker lashes and does add a slight curl to them too. I think it does help keep your mascara on too."
