Whilst there are some things I splash out on in my makeup collection, mascaras are on of those things that are incredible on a budget. When it comes to mascara I never look further than the high street. Here are four mascaras that are incredible when you're shopping with tight pursestrings.
The Mascara For Extreme Volume
Potentially my favourite of the four is the Bourjois 1 Seconde Mascara. The brush of the mascara is spherical which means there are bristles on each edge. This allows you to wrap every single lash in a 360 degree motion, which actually makes a world of difference. It gives you extreme volume and there's not a clump in sight!
The Mascara For Length
If you look for length from your mascara, I highly recommend the Rimmel London Lash Accelerator Endless Mascara. This mascara has thin little brush, the formula is packed with little fibres which extend the length of your natural lashes. Rimmel say that this mascara can extend your "lashes by up to 99%" and I'm inclined to agree. The length you get from this is phenomenal and each lash is perfectly defined.
The Gimmick Which Actually Works
This is another Rimmel London mascara, but this time it's the Wake Me Up Mascara. It's a fresh new launch from Rimmel and it's the newest addition to the Wake Me Up range. This mascara is a bit of a gimmick as it's actually scented. Yep, scented! It smells like cucumber, which is something a little bit different. One coat of this gives you volume and defined lashes, but the result isn't particularly dramatic.
The Waterproof Version
I don't wear waterproof mascara on a daily basis, but I do like to stick up when I'm going on holiday. Sadly a lot of waterproof mascaras can be a bit disappointing, but I'm a big fan of Maybelline's Collasal Volum' Express Mascara. This one has a fabulous formula which gives you lots of volume, but it doesn't give you panda eyes in the swimming pool!
