Top 20 Mascara Products for December 2014

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.

Pro Lash Reviews:
"Agree this is a great product, bit of a tip to all out there to make almost any mascara fab regardless of price, it"s the wand that makes the difference, try those small tooth floss brushes the tiny ones for between teeth they are great for lower lashes! But this product does the job without all the hassle."

"I've been a loyal fan of this for the past 11 years, really rich black colour, more volume than lengthening, tried other mac ones but still come back to this. Great brush, does not get clogged up."

2000 Calorie Mascara Reviews:
"Great mascara at an affordable price. only downside is that it dries up quite quickly. "

"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!"

Hypnose Precious Cells Reviews:
"I really did love this mascara it provided excellent volume and length without clumping and my eyelashes looked amazing, the only downside is that it"s very expensive so for those on a budget it"s overly priced therefore I probably wouldn"t repurchase unless I had money to spare."

"There is onyl one disadvantage with this product and thats the price. However, I would definitely pay the money again as it's well worth it. This is one of the best mascara i have come across and the brush is my favourite. It helps to elongate the lashes to their fullest whilst keeping them clump free. Because of the tip, it's easy to reach into the inner and outer corners of the eye lashes. "

Waterproof Longer lash Macara by Collection

Waterproof Longer lash Macara Reviews:
"Definitely lengthens my eyelashes, but does not define or thicken them. Doesn"t clump that much, but it ALWAYS goes on my eyelids (it"s not me because I didn"t do that with other mascaras). I"d say use it with eyelash curlers. Ideally I"d rate this 3.5 out of 5."

"This mascara is really cheap, especially for what your getting. You only need to apply a couple of strokes for a subtle day time look and it defines each lash individually, making each one very long. This is the only mascara that dry's really quickly which prevents it from going clumpy. "

Professional Extreme Curl Mascara Reviews:
"This mascara is a God send. Not only does it make my lashes appear much longer, but its done within 1 coat. There are odd clumps but those can be easily removed. The mascara also has a sweet apple scent to it, lovely but I doubt a guy is going to have sniff on my lashes. You can also very easily clean it off with no hassle. Still in doubt? It was only £2 from Superdrugs! ^.^"

"This is one of the best mascaras I"ve ever used! I wasn"t expecting much from this as it was only £2, but i loved the packaging so much I had to buy it. It has a curved wand which i thought would be pointless, but it really helps coat all the lashes. The consistency is nice and thick, but not clumpy at all. Definitely worth a try!"

Volume Express ColossalSmokey Reviews:
"I started to use this mascara when it first came out and have not strayed since. It is an incredible mascara- the brush allows me to cover all my lashes in a way that makes them appear fuller and longer and without clumping. Length to your lashes is what this product provides."

"I"m quite lucky in that I have naturally long, thick eyelashes so this works great on me to add definition. Brush picks up plenty of product and applies easily, separating lashes without any clumps. Had this mascara a few months now and still hasn"t turned clumpy. A thin coat for daytime lasts through an 8 hour day at work, although a thicker night time look needs more maintenance."

Lash Extension Effect Mascara Reviews:
"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!"

False Lash Effect Reviews:
"This is the best mascara I"ve ever owned. I have naturally long lashes but I"m useless at applying - this makes them look thick and long. Unlike a lot of mascara it doesn"t clump on application. "

"i personally love this mascara because i like my eyelashes to be big and bold, but if you are someone that want to go for the more natural looking make up then this may not be for you as it can be quite thick and chunky on the eyelashes."

Masterpiece Waterproof Mascara Reviews:
"i love this mascara for when i want a more natural look as it fans out the lashes, it doesn"t clump the lashes together and the pigment is quite dark and nice. it doesn"t last very long and it is not good for when you desire dark, thick lashes."

"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."

Masterpiece Max Mascara Reviews:
"As a newbie to the world of make up I made sure I looked at a few reviews before choosing a mascara and this one looked a good bet. This mascara is really easy to apply, even with a massively unsteady hand like mine. It gives great volume and lenghtens my lashes, even coating the tiny bottom ones with ease. The colour is a deep rich black. It"s easy to remove too! Perfect."

"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. "

Mascara Volume Effect Faux Cils Reviews:
"This is my favourite ever mascara. It really does give a falsh lash effect so if this is the look you"re going for you won"t be disappointed. It adds volume and length, it"s easy to apply and lasts for a long time. So whilst it"s at the upper end of the price scale it is worth it if you want dramatic lashes. Love it."

"The best mascara i have ever used, hands down. I own 3 of these mascaras now and i absolutely treasure them. When i take the time to apply it properly it makes my eyelashes look like false eyelashes, impossibly long & perfect."

Volum' Express One By One Waterproof mascara Reviews:
"I am very picky with my mascaras, however this mascara is really good if you desire thick, very dark lashes, the first couple times you use it, it does not clump the lashes. It doesn"t last very long however and after a while it tends to become hard and dry up which makes the lashes clumpy"

"This mascara is one of the best I"ve tried, reasonably priced it achieves all it tries to delivering massive volume as well as long lashes. Will definitely buy this again."

Le Volume De Chanel Reviews:
"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!"

Super shock mascara Reviews:
"This mascara has a great brush which allows for good coverage and separation of the lashes. It isn"t waterproof, which is a down side as it smudges a bit easily. Great for a party look - unless you intend to spend the whole night on the dancefloor!"

"I love the volume and length it gives while keeping your lashes nicely separated, it doesn't clump and I think it's more than worth the price, I also love the new tiger print bottle :) a must have for my makeup bag"

Collagen Curl mascara Reviews:
"It curls, it lengthens and it volumises also it makes my eyelashes very black which i like. It"s especially good after using eyelash curlers. However I won"t be buying this again, because it is very difficult to apply and often makes my lashes clumpy, also it doesn"t really last very long and by the end of the day i had panda eyes so i was dissappointed!"

"This mascara is a very good mascara if you are looking for volume, lift and curl as it provides all of these, however it does have a tendancy to clump at the ends of your eyelashes which can be annoying to fix. It does exactly what it says on the packaging and I like it aswell as it being very cheap"

Volume Million Lashes Reviews:
"I try different ones always go back to l"oreal as i love the way you can build the lashes as much as you like, it really does lengthen them and love the feel when i look up and my lashes touch my eyelids. Great product "

"I found this the best mascara that i have bought as it has a great brush, it is so easy to apply and it doesn't come off. It separates my lashes very well and gives great volume and length to my lashes. I found that the packaging of the mascara were very chic and i think that the name summed up what the mascara was actually like. I will keep on buying this mascara and never leave without it. "
