Five mini reviews:
Maybelline Lash Stiletto, £7.99
This transformed my lashes in to a perfect separated fan of lashes that didnt budge till I washed it off that evening. Its not the most volumising mascara Ive ever tried but its perfect if you want your eyes to be defined without looking overdone and dont want to have to give a second thought to flaking or touch-ups.
Rimmel GlamEyes Lash Flirt, £6.99
Another mascara thats about lengthening and separation rather than volume, and I loved the way it opened up my eyes. Youll have to wait for this one, though. Its not on counters till 22nd April.
Clinique High Impact Curling Mascara, £13.21
This gave a pretty false eyelash effect and, unlike so many full-on formulas, didnt end up smeared by lunchtime. In fact, it lasted all day.
Prescriptives MotorEyes Instant Mascara, £22.51
I know theyve been around for a while now but this was my first encounter with a vibrating mascara. Once Id got past the gimmick the wand starts vibrating as soon as you unscrew it I liked the product. It perked up my perma-wilted lashes with lots of glossy volume and lift, though Im not sure how much the vibrations had to do with any of that in my experience, all Prescriptives mascaras give great results. But if for whatever reason applying eye make-up has become too boring for you, this would be worth a try. On counter: 25th April.
Benefit BADgal Waterproof Mascara, £14.50
Despite the fact it didnt come with the BADgal trademark fat brush, this mascara didnt disappoint. Unlike a lot of waterproofs, it gave my lashes a perfect coat of shiny gloss and made them look twice their actual size. Plus, it only took a tiny bit more extra scrubbing to get it off.
