Favourite Mascaras


For me, a mascara just makes a beauty look. Theres so many mascaras out there that can be used for different things and have so many different purposes. Over the years ive had sooo many different mascaras. And ive found that the thicker the brush doesn’t make a difference to your lashes. If anything you end up poking yourself in the eye rather than making your lashes long and thick. So i have narrowed my huge collection to just 5 mascaras i think are my favourite.

Favourite Drugstore Mascara

Meg Plush Volum’ Express Mascara by Maybelline

Favourite High End Mascara

YSL Shocking Macara


This is my Everyday mascara. If i’m in a rush or not going anywhere id use this as a quick alternative. You only need a couple of strokes and your lashes and dense and separated. I wouldn’t recommend it as a going out mascara but as a day to day one it certainly does the job. Sometimes i use this mascara to separate the lashes if ive used another one and they seem cloggy.

Rimmel Lash Accelerator Mascara Black £7.99


So yes this is my favourite high end mascara. And it could actually be my all time favourite. Its a tough call against this Yves saint Laurent Shocking Mascara or the Elizabeth Arden Double Density max volume mascara. I cant quite describe but since i purchased this a few months back now, i use it every time i go out. It makes my lashes so long and thick and people have thought i had fake lashes on. I guess that kinda is a compliment?! Now and then ill use it through the day but i prefer to keep it for special occasions as its the most expensive mascara i own. So i want to make it last as long as possible before i rebuy.


Now everyone has heard of this mascara now surely?! If not you have been hiding under a rock. Bit the hype of this Benefit mascara is genuine. I have blogged about this mascara a couple of times now and it really is a great mascara. This for me, i used first then the YSL shocknig mascara on a night out. I guess you could say i used this as a base for my lashes. The mascara makes your lashes longer and separate. It really is a great mascara and i would recommend it to anyone and i have done.


This is the newest mascara out of all of them. In fact i only got it a couple of days ago. I know what your thinking its her favourite already? But it actually is. I bought this mascara from TKmaxx for just £7.99 when the RRP is about £21. So i thought i had to pick up this bargain. Within the first use i was impressed. The way it made my lashes was very similar to the YSL shocking mascara so it is a contender to be my favourite mascara. But i knew i just had to include this mascara in the post. You all need to buy this if you haven’t already, ive seen it in 3 different TKmaxx’s so go to your nearest one now!!


And finally the MegaPlush Mascara. I love the way the brush is shaped to fit all your lashes on one stroke. I need to rebuy this mascara as ive had it for a few months now and its starting dry up. If your wanting a good mascara on a budget then i would recommend this. I sometimes use this for my going out looks and they do make your eyes bold and dense. They dont clog the lashes either which is another bonus.
