My Top 3 Mascaras

I have decided to go ahead and choose my favourite mascaras at this point in time. I say that because I want to try some others that might completely blow me away (chance would be a fine thing, I think what I am looking for in a mascara is one that will basically act like false eye lashes and to be honest is that ever going to happen?)

Anyway the three that I have chosen are:

Max Factor’s False Lash Effect – I brought this mascara in January and I remember not being that impressed the very first time I used this (I think this stems to the whole false eye lash thing I always expect) but after that I thought it was one of the best mascaras I have ever tried. I use this most days now, it is a little hard to remove but I now feel it’s worth it.

Yves Saint Laurent Volume Effect Faux Cils – I know that everyone raves about this mascara and with good reason – it is perhaps the closest I have got to my natural lashes looking their best. I love this mascara, I would repurchase this over and over again if it wasn’t a high end brand (it costs about £20) and I found it had a very short life of about 1-2 months.

Clinique High Impact Mascara – This was a tough choice for me for two reasons. I wanted to choose Mac’s Plush Lash but thought I can’t really because this irritates my eyes and it doesn’t seem right to choose something as a favourite when I can’t really wear it (I still do though from time to time because I do love it and I want to make sure about the whole eye irritating thing – and yes I am still correct). Anyway, back to this mascara, it was also a tough choice with Maybelline’s Define-a-Lash as well so I wore one on each eye this morning and decided on this Clinique one as it adds more length, separation and makes my lashes look fuller. I find that Define-a-Lash adds separation and length but no volume (and I am using the pink one, the one that is supposed to add volume). Clinique's High Impact mascara used to be one of my favourite mascaras when it first came out and I think it still is.

The next mascaras I want to try are a couple of higher end brands and they are Diorshow Blackout, Lancome’s Hypnose and also Maybelline’s Stiletto. I think I will always be on the look out for the next fantastic mascara even though I have found some great ones! I don’t think I will ever change.

@Emma - Thank you! I like the Masterpiece one as well, I tried this ages ago and forgot all about it. I might have to try the 2000 Calorie one next because this seems to be known as a good one.
