Oh my days, it has been ages since I've blogged. Apologies readers, I've been drowning in college work and it's been sunny and I just haven't bought much makeup recently so I haven't felt motivated to blog about it.
However, Superdrug's 3 for 2 was too much for me to resist and I needed a reward for skipping lunch to do college work for the third time!
Everyone's seen the iconic Maybelline Great Lash mascara and I had been meaning to try it for ages but never quite got round to it - mainly as I'd read some awful reviews online. This really seems to be a Marmite mascara - either you love it or you hate it... I have more clichés if you'd like to hear them :')
Anyway, I'm very picky about my mascaras as I have short, thick, very curly lashes and I need long lasting length. For £4.99, my curiosity got the better of me.
I was pleasantly surprised! This mascara creates lashes that dance somewhere between glamourous and natural - exactly what I like. I find natural look mascaras end up fading or falling down my face throughout the day, and volumising ones make me look overly made up. This is the perfect every day mascara, the best of both worlds and a decent handbag friendly size, too. (I swear mascara tubes are getting bigger and bigger. No? Just me who thinks that? Ok..)
As for the apparent clumping that others have reported, I've seen none of it! I have sparse eyelashes so I'm extremely susceptible to clumping and I'm delighted to note that this caused so such effects.
As you can see, the wand is very short and - more importantly - tightly woven. I developed a taste for tight, short bristle brushes after experiencing the glory that is Mac's Extended Play Gigablack Lash mascara for an upsetting £15. In my experience, they are the best for lengthening lashes as it extends them from the base. While I'd never hesitate to repurchase my Mac favourite (and Holy Grail mascara), it's very expensive and it's always nice to know that there's a cheaper alternative in case of sudden cash flow issues.
This is definitely a new favourite. Maybe not Holy Grail status, but wow, definitely up there. For £4.99 I have no complaints at all!
Also, one of my best friends has recently started blogging and she's a total babe so give her a follow please? #subtle :') Her blog is called Dandelion Ashes and it's well worth a look!
