As much as we like make up, there are some days we simply can’t be bothered with it all. You know the type of day – you’re tired, you wear your glasses instead of your contacts and you pull your hair back into a ponytail. As tired we may be though, we always bother with a bit of mascara. Only takes 2 minutes and we hope it drags us from dreary to mildly attractive. There are three we always have in our makeup bag.
When we first came across this we thought it would be rubbish as it wasn’t from one of the big brands. How wrong we were! It left our lashes looking longer and separated. It does wear off slightly throughout the day and smudged a bit but we like to think that made us look ‘smoky eyed’ and not like we slept in our make up.
3 out of 5.
L’Oreal Lash Architect – £10.29
A great every day mascara. Over the years we’ve tried all the L’Oreal mascaras and this one is without a doubt the best. Lasts all day, leaves the lashes long and full and the brush doesn’t clog.
4 out of 5.
Lancome Définicils Mascara – £20.50
The best mascara ever. No doubt. Don’t waste it behind glasses – wear the No 7 Flawless if you’re having one of these days – your lashes deserve to be seen so put your contacts in. This made our lashes ridiculously long, full and separated. It comes off easily (Lancome do a nice remover too) and the waterproof version didn’t move at all when we blubbed our heart out at a wedding.
If we could give it 6 out of 5 we would. But we can’t because that doesn’t make sense, so we give it a well earned 5 out of 5.
