Liz Earle Lash Definition Smudgeproof Mascara - Review


The Liz Earle Lash Definition Smudgeproof Mascara is another product that was included in the recent TSV from QVC.  Naturally - being a total mascara fiend I was excited to try it...I'm always excited at the prospect of a new mascara...!

"Our water-resistant and long-lasting mascara helps you achieve perfectly defined lashes that look longer and fuller." 

The brush is comprised of tiny bristles and is a standard shape and size.  I found the formula to be fairly dry which meant that it didn't glide on and was quite difficult to apply compared to some mascaras.  It works best for me if I apply two coats, one almost immediately after the other - it's not one that I can return to later on and add another coat if I fancy building the look up, as it seems to clump up on my lashes and I need to comb through.  I find it lengthens and defines but doesn't particularly add any fullness or volume.  Once on though it does leave the lashes with a natural, conditioned feel to them with no brittle or crispy thing going on - and also holds the curl up well.  It lasts well throughout the day without smudging or flaking (even in the height of hay fever season) and is really easily removed with my cleansing balm - so all is not lost.

A couple of coats just on the top ...

I'd say this mascara would probably work well for those with longer thicker lashes to achieve a natural daytime look and could make a perfect holiday mascara due to it's water resistance.  For anyone (such as myself) wanting a bit more 'oomp' to my lashes, unfortunately this isn't the one so not something I'll be re-purchasing.

The Liz Earle Lash Definition Smudgeproof Mascara comes in at £14.50/8ml and is available in Black or Brown.

Have you tried this mascara? What's your favourite mascara of the moment?

  1. Looks like a good day mascara but same as you, prefer a bit more oomph!

  2. I have wondered about Liz Earle Mascara but the price tag put me off a bit. It looks nice but I love high drama lashes!

    1. I know it is rather an an expensive one - good job I got it included in a kit! I love high drama lashes too! x

  3. I like a lot of lash too! I always add more as the day goes on - hee hee! I've only tried a couple of Liz Earle make up products so it's good to hear a review on more. X

    1. Good to know it's not only me that adds more layers of mascara Claire! xx

  4. Thanks for the review Jenny. As much as I totally love Liz Earle's skincare I've been a little reluctant to try her make-up products as I think they would be a little too 'natural' for me. I don't mean in the organic sense! I mean in the result as I like lashings of lash! So you've probably saved me a bob or two there! My favourite mascara has to be Lancome, but as I get through mascara like Liz Taylor does husbands, Lancome mascara tis a rare treat, so for day to day I usually stick to maybelline x
