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 absolutely love mascara I mean all us gurl teenagers do is buy make uo it makes us feel better about ourselves I wear glasses so I like to make my eyes bold this mascara did just that it looked like I had falses on it was great I love it I"m definitely going to buy it again"
"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."
"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. "
"This mascara is amazing it feels light on my eyelashes ,also it makes them curly and thick ,I will definitely buy it again"
"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 "
"I received this as a sample and I fell in love with it straight away! I do own other high end mascaras but non of them compare to this. It goes on effortlessly and doesn"t smudge. It gives my lashes extra volume and the length of my lashes when I apply this is unreal. Even my mum loves it! I will be definitely purchasing the full suse soon "
"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!"
"This mascara is great it defines you lashes which I love and it gives them so much volume it"s unreal ! I need to get a new one soon I"m starting to run out sadly but I"m sure I"ll need to get many more in the future I love this product !!"
"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!"
"Dry formula, did nothing to my lashes besides clump them together. Not sure if i got a dodgy one "
"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!"
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."
"I have this mascara and find it useless. The mascara clumps my lashes if I"m not careful and flakes during the day . The smaller end is good for bottom lashes tho . Personally I think there is many more mascaras out there much more worth there money ."
"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 :)"
"So the formula of this product is incredible for lengthening but I find it hardly gives any volume which is my personal favourite feature from a mascara. However, this is amazing for bottom lashes and I would probably continue to use the one I have for this purpose. I wouldn"t buy again though as I usually just use the same mascara for my upper and bottom lashes as it saves money."
"This is a more natural mascara in my opinion. It adds definition and a slight curl. Lasts all day. I use it every day."
"One of my favourite mascaras - don"t always splurge on it as it doesn"t do much more for me than a cheaper one but it does define lashes really well and helps curl them. No smudging which is a plus and awesome packaging."
"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! "
Lash Sensational Lash Multiplying Mascara by Maybelline
"I hate this makes my eyebrows clump together I bought it because zoella had raved about it I regret buying this so much"
"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."
Volume Million Lashes So Couture Mascara by L'Oreal
"Definitely a good cheap mascara to try . Amazing results from 1st use , no clumps just lovely natural fluttery lashes , lasts all day too with no flaking "
"This mascara really helped me I"ve tried so many and all of them other clumped it or it when really long but strait and then I brought this one and instantly I was happy with my result so thanks I would recommend this to every one so thanks a lot "
"I really like this mascara as it does a good job of lifting my eyelashes and giving them a solid black colouring. I didn"t see this mascara adding much length to my lashes, but I do recommend it if you want a natural looking curl to your eyelashes. The wand has a nice curve which makes it easy to get a hold on all my lashes. Definitely a good mascara!! "
"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."
Falsifeye Blackest Black Mascara by Seventeen
"This mascara is not clumpy at all from the start it really does lengthen your lashes but doesn"t really spread them out. Overtime mascara did dry out and did start to clump my lashes."
"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!"
Lights, Camera, Lashes 4-in-1 Mascara by Tarte
"Received a sample of this in my Glossy box and I absolutely loved it. Made my lashes look fantastic. Didn"t smudge either. Loved the packaging. "
"I stumbled upon this gem in my Glossybox, Tarte is not a high street brand which is a shame as this mascara has the wow factor. Its lengthening, separates, and creates the most volume I have ever seen in a mascara. Staying power is fab, but its still easy enough to remove. Can be purchased from QVC, however there is a waiting list, its also on Amazon for £10 more at £27.50, pricey but so worthy"
"Great mascara, not too heavy on the eyes but just the perfect amount to make your eyes pop.. This mascara is nearly always my go to mascara and I use this mascara under other mascaras as well. It is affordable as well so overall great product. "
"LOVE LOVE LOVE been buying this mascara ever since it came out, separates and lengthens lashes beautifully"
"Flaky and dry. Hard to apply because of the dry texture. Brush awful. Made my lashes clump together. Not good. "
"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."
"I hated this mascara.Its really wet and took ages to dry. The wand is horrible, and it applies the mascara chunky and thick. I"d never recommend this product."
"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."
