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.
"Planning to invest in a higher end mascara - go with this one! Gets your lashes thick, long, and full and keeps them that way all day. Doesn"t smudge or clump, one coat gives you instant results and it"s a must-have for every lady. Want a natural look - use 1 coat, want dramatic - use 2 or 3. Definitely recommend this one for every makeup bag! Worth the investment (£18-25)"
"This makes my eyelashes so much longer than any other mascara and I love it! It works so well and the best thing about it is that it doesn"t clump! "
"Love love love! It is such a beautiful mascara that coats my lashes amazingly without making the clumpy and spider legs. It seperates my lashes so well and gives the falsie effects just like the Benefit mascaras. Although pricey it"s definitely worth it. Ladies if you"re out to get a killer mascara this is the one!!"
"its just the perfect mascara I have ever tried before I"m in love with this one just bought it 2 months ago and honestly it does the job perfectly separate my lashes add a big and thick volume all I"m expecting from a Dior Mascara "
"my eyelashes are so beautiful when i put this mascara on omg u wouldnt believe it i look like a modle x"
"Good mascara - brush and angles do make the mascara easier to apply. Nice thick lashes (haven"t managed to achieve the Penelope Cruise feather lash look in the advert yet) and it holds the shape of the lashes well too, I have been asked on several occasions if my lashes are my own whilst wearing this. "
"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!"
"Best mascara, absolutely love this product. Its gives volume and definition to my lashes and its not clumpy like some mascaras. Would definitely recommend."
"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. "
"It is AMAZING it doesn"t clump and after application there is a real difference they can make your eyelashes longer it"s definitely worth the money "
"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!"
"This mascara gives your eyelashes a credible amount of length, & due to the bristles of the brush, it also separates your eyelashes well. After using this mascara for 7 yrs, I have received COUNTLESS compliments! However, this product does not offer volume. The substance is very light, and to achieve volume, you must put at least 2/3 layers which means - more time & effort. Get"s boring!"
"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. "
"this is honestly one of the best mascaras i have owned in a long time, one side is for length and other side is for volume, i always use length first then volume. its amazing! really does do wonders! it gives your lashes the look of wearimg falsies, which i absolutely love! deffo a good buy xx"
"I have rubbish eyelashes and this is the only mascara I found that made my lashes look good! Definitely recommend and will definitely buy again :)"
"I absolutely love this problem. I suffer from small eyes and non curly eyelashes. With this mascara it keeps my eyelashes long and curly. It is easy to apply as I don"t get them on my eyelids or smudge off my bottom lashes which is a problem I have with most mascara so "
"This is a more natural mascara in my opinion. It adds definition and a slight curl. Lasts all day. I use it every day."
"This mascara takes many layers to build up & can sometimes be clumpy after a few uses due to the texture being to thick and drying much faster which makes the eyelashes uneven and doesn"t now make it an easy application but it does have its perks because it"s a solid black which makes light colour eyelashes look dark with its coats making them extend and thick."
"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!"
The Mega Plush Volum' Express by Maybelline
"Really good mascara for price no clumps or lumps thickens and volumises it looks like your wearing false lashes best mascara I"ve used. The flexible brush allows you to get all the lashes and coat them and you don"t need that many coats to get extended lashes."
"I found the wand brush nice and thick for easy application. There was a lot of mascara in the tube container did not need much to get volume effect. I had a false lash effect. The texture was thick and smelt pleasant. The packaging was enticing you to buy it, stood out from the rest and looked very expensive. Good for a night out on the town. Recommend it to anyone who wants to look their best. "
"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."
Masterpiece Waterproof Mascara by Max Factor
"Depending on how long your eyelashes are, this mascara does the job long or short lashes, makes them look more volumised and gives definition to the lashes and is a good waterproof mascara and only needed 2 coats and it did the job, also it is a amazing drugstore mascara would 100% reccomend this"
"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."
"Really enjoy this wand, gives a very fully and dramatic look to the lashes, very affordable easy to find and a nice shade of black, can be built to a much thick formula without being clumpy "
"wow, wow, wow. i haven't got a bad word to say about this mascara. the brush is a good size and shape and doesn't come out of the tube with lots of mascara on it. it curls my lashes really well and lengthens them soooo much! anyone who has really short light eyelashes should defiantly, defiantly try this mascara..it really works!"
"I got a sample and totally love it! Creates natural but bold lashes. Not clumpy and it drys quickly! The best mascara for everyday use."
"I really like this mascara! The brush is nifty and easy to use! I purshased the large one after getting the small one numerous a times to see if it was really worth the price. To my findings it deffinately is worth the price. "
"My Holy Grail for everyday mascara. It gives a bit of volume and really lengthened my lashes. The brush are great and doesn"t make any mascara lumps. It makes my eyes look bigger and stays all day. Would definitely repurchase. "
"This is a really good quality mascara. The brush is perfect because it"s soft and reduces clumps, the product itself is smooth and quite light, however for its price I think their may be better alternatives. Mine didn"t last very long and dried out quite quickly, but it"s sill a very good mascara that I will re-purchase."
"Amazing volume and length only downside is very high in price may get again if 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. "
"If you are after lashes that are full of volume and length then this mascara has you covered. You just need a couple of swipes from the root of the lash to the ends and you get lashes that look thick and voluminous I would really recommend this to people who don"t have a lot of eyelashes or they are lacking in length."
"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"
Volume Effet Faux Cils Baby Doll by Yves Saint Laurent
"Worst mascara I"ve ever used! I ended up wit black shadows under my eyes after about an hour! I don"t like the panda look"
"Loving this new classy YSL addition, its really does live up to its name, it separates, lengthens and volumises all without looking clumpy and over done. One coat is enough to achieve the doll look, and to help it has narrow neck opening so you cant overload the brush. Its long lasting and smudge proof even after 10 hours in the heat. At £24.50 its not cheap hence the 4*, but it does deliver."
