I have a problem. Mascara!
All my friends know that I'm a complete and utter mascara junkie! My lashes have always been really short and fine and because I'm of a darker skin tone with dark hair I always feel like I need loads of definition around the eye area. Both my brothers have longer fuller lashes (the youngest in particular!) - it's so not fair! I obviously missed out on that part of my Anglo-Indian heritage!!
I've tried so many mascaras in the quest for the longer fuller lash effect it's ridiculous! I have a friend who has one mascara in her make up collection, ONE MASCARA! and she buys the same one every time it runs out! I simply can't understand this behaviour and she thinks I'm completely mad! Although after this post you'll probably think so too!!
Just look at this lot!
On the go ...!
My favourites of the moment from top to bottom -
Max Factor Masterpiece Max - an old favourite good for definition.
Mally Volumising - volumises and lengthens, a good all rounder, jet black and bulletproof.
Revitalash Volumising - I don't find this volumising, however it's really good at de-clumping as it's a very wet formula, really jet black and almost shiny. Use this a lot over the top of anything a bit clumpy.
Bare Minerals Flawless Definition Curl & Lengthen - this was one of my June Favourites, good for lengthening and curling, good on lower lashes.
No 7 Fanomenal Lashes - my current favourite, opens the eye up, separate review to follow shortly!
On the way out ...!
These have been used for the past few months and are getting ready to be retired -
ModelCo Fibre Lash Brush On False Lashes - used this mainly when I had eyelash extensions removed, it works but you have to take off carefully to avoid pulling out eyelashes!
Miss Sporty Pump Up Lash - good thickening brush, jet black almost vinyl finish, can clump.
Natural Collection Lash Curl - an ok basic black mascara.
No 7 Exquisite Curl - good curling brush, more lengthening than volumising for me.
On the cards ...!
I know what you're thinking, she is totally mad but these were all part of various offers and should last if unopened. I have to put them away at the bottom of a drawer where I can't see them otherwise the temptation gets too much!
17 Peep Show
17 Va Va Voom
Maybelline Falsies Volume Express
Maybelline Colossal Volume Express
On the prime ...!
Believe it or not I only have one primer open!
L'Oreal Studio Secrets Professional Fibre Mascara Primer - False Lash Effect - creates a bit of extra volume and length but not 'false lash' on me! (can clump).
Revitalash Volumizing Primer - resisting the opening session for as long as I can!
So there you have it, my mad mascara collection in all it's glory! I haven't used eyelash curlers for months to be honest because since using Revitalash Advanced Conditioner they do seem to be curlier. This is the girl who was late for her own wedding because she made the wedding chauffeur return home for my eyelash curlers!
Oh no what's this ...?
Can I resist ...? Going to try my absolute best!
So am I the maddest (that's not even good grammar) mascara fiend in town or is anybody else going to challenge me?
What are your beauty obsessions, come on, spill the beans girls!!
