Lengthening, waterproof, curly, no clumps, separating…the list of different mascaras can appear daunting, however luckily for our readers, if there’s one thing the Naijaliving team get right, it’s mascara. We’ve raided the makeup stands on the high street, and have managed to round up five mascaras (from the scarily pricey to the affordable) that we know you will love.
- Max Factor Excess Volume Extreme Impact Mascara – £12.99
We would recommend wearing this mascara for the evening; with the wand’s jet-black finish and volumising effect, it promises an all-day impact which is perfect for clubbing or dinner dates. At £12.99 this mascara ticks most of the boxes – It gives volume without clumps, looks as good at the end of a long day as it does when you first put it on. Our one gripe is the difficulty in removing the mascara!
- Benefit they’re real mascara – £17.55
We’ve had our eyes on this mascara for a while now, but at £17.55, you can understand our reluctance – but we’ve tried and we are now obsessed! The ‘comb’ like wand is designed to lengthen, curl and lift every lash, all of which creates an incredibly subtle and natural change. No smudging or clumping, this mascara is the real deal.
3. Natural Collection Lash Length Mascara – £1.99
With a price tag of £2, we were sceptical on how per formative this mascara was, but there was no denying how easy the brush was to control, or the long-lasting curl and lengthening the product gave. Plus we didn’t experience any smudging. Of course, this mascara wont give the same ‘wow’ effect as the previous mascaras, but at £2 it comes pretty close to it.
4. Maybelline New York Great Lash
Maybelline New York Great Lash is a classic, perfect for those with few lashes, as the lash building formula left our lashes looking and feeling much fuller, with a clean separated lash finish. We also love how Maybelline have also included a waterproof version of this mascara!
5. YSL Baby Doll Mascara, £24.50
At £24.50 (eek!) this mascara is on the pricier side but if you are looking for a thick, show-stopping lash effect, then this mascara is for you. The fine and close bristles reach every lash with ease, whilst the thick bristles on the other side of the wand, coat the lashes to create real volume.
