Finally I have found the mascara I will buy again, and again, and again......
I have tried, God knows, how many mascaras.
Lancome ( which ARE good ) Bobbi Brown, Rimmel, Maxfactor, Loreal - Oh the list is endless!
I'm too down right fussy for my own good. I want it all ( what woman doesn't )
I want thickness, length. I don't want it too clumpy, but I want it thick enough to see I'm wearing it. I want seperation-definition, I want a brush that's not too big, nor too small. I want a brush that doesn't dry out within weeks. I also want to only have to use one, two coats MAXIMUM, to get a fabulous effect. Mmmmm, I think thats it.
God help the makeup consultant who asks me what I wanted from my mascara.
I think I've covered everything I would want from my perfect mascara, trouble is, I could never find one that did fit the above requirements.
I've found ones that do seperate beautifully, but give little volume.
I've tried ones that have a silly little brush, promising superior results. As if.
I've thrown away the ones that give fabulous results, then within a week - dried out.
Here it is. My perfect mascara.
MAC - In Extreme Dimension Lash - £18.00
Why is it perfect?
The brush - its one of those plastic ones. The funny thing is, I hate these brushes. I find they dont pick enough of the mascara and create no volume. MAC have a secret here, 'cus they have converted me! This one is large, and has 'canals' down the applicator. These hold 'reseviors', of mascara. So when you brush it through your lashes you are left with intensly black, thick, defined gorgeous lashes.
The brush is also fab for bottom lashes, it seperates perfectly.
|This brush holds an immense amount of mascara|
I just can't fault it.
I usually found with plastic applicators they never left enough lash impact for me. They left my lashes wimpy, in need of a good meal. Too skinny, waif like.
I want thick, blow you over if I so much as bat an eyelid at you, lashes.
Well here it is girls.
Finally, after 31 years, I have found the mascara I will buy, again.
