How To Find Your Perfect Mascara

Has every single mascara you've bought lived up to its big bold claims written indubitably on the back of its pretty packaging?

If your answer to that is yes... I'm sorry, we can't be friends - I have a severe case of jealousy.

And, to those of you invisibly nodding to 'no'... ahhh. Don't fret. Happens to the best of us, eh? It's all down to the product. Yep, that's right...It's not you, it's them.

 So, having freakishly outlandish lashes that appear to have a thing for repeatedly attenuating the effect of your mascara's "magic claims" doesn't appear to be the issue here.

Phew...glad we've got that one cleared up. 

With that information fresh in our minds, let's talk all things Lashes. What is it exactly that you want? Are you after the curl? Are you opting for the volume? Perhaps gravitating towards length? There's a lot to think about for this small tube of black liquid; mascaras may be small in size, but they play a colossal role in terms of making a look.

Once you've thought about exactly what it is that you're looking for...then...well take a look at some of my top picks:





So, there we have it! Some recommendations based on whatever factor you're hunting for. I'm no sidekick, but I for sure see some of these mascaras crawling onto your favorites list.

Thank you for reading! I'd love to know what you thought x


  1. Yess, this mascara is a gift to me! I've needed a guide like this for the longest of times. Although I'm sure when I owned Benefit's They're Real I thought it volumised more than lengthened, probably because I have such tinie lashes

    1. Glad you liked it! Yeah, that's very true They're real is fantastic for volumizing but in my case it was also super lengthening! :)

  2. I really need to try some of the eyeko mascaras but I love MAX FACTOR mascaras xx

  5. Thank you for this post! Something has been telling me to get the Better than Sex Mascara but I also want the Benefit They're Real Mascara. Both are great but I don't know which one I want first!
