Had a £5 off no7 voucher so thought I'd treat myself to a new mascara. I have used no7 'extreme length' before and was quite happy with it but for some insane reason, I thought I would try the 'extravagant lashes' version today.
Well I got it home to try it and it's HORRENDOUS stuff! Clump city. lashes totally stuck together, completely unwearable. So disappointed - only cost £8 with the voucher but still far from happy. I know mascara is a hot topic on here so thought I would share my experience with all you lot. If anyone would like to recommend a really good mascara for under £15, I will be your friend forever!
I've tried loads and loads and loads of mascaras, all kinds, expensive and cheap...
But the two I love (at the moment, they're always bringing out new ones that I love more than the last in this brand!) are the red tube 'One by One' and the yellow tube 'Collosal'.
Along with some eyelash curlers, (which I give a quick blast with my hairdryer before using, supposedly it holds the curl and then the mascara sets it like hairspray does for your hair), they're absolutely the best.
Take it back. BOOTS are very good at giving refunds. I bought a bracelet that snapped after one day -- I MIGHT have over stretched it a bit-- and they refunded with no fuss. Have also taken bak a pair of supposedly fantastic insoles because they weren't comfy - thought I was chancing it a bit tbh but again no problems.
The Super Shock is quite good I agree, I like it because it does not transfer, something I seem to get with most mascaras. I mostly use Max Factor (false lash effect I think) But really good is l'oreal voluminous better than lancome hypnose in my view for dramatic lashes, using this, resulted in the only time my husband has commented on my lashes, he thought I had false lashes on.
Normally love max factor ones but do not buy Max Factor Lash Extension Effect Mascara. It's like the Emperor's new clothes - 10 coats later and it still looks like you aren't wearing any and your eyelashes look the same as before. Very disappointing.
i have no7 lash 360 atm. its ok. thats all i can say though it does separate well but it goes everywhere. i had loreal volume million or whatever its called and actually used it until it ran out and went all flakey - amazing stuff!
rimmel volume whatever waterproof mascara - shit! so shit i actually binned it and i never do that just leave makeup hanging around for years. this one dont waste your money!
i have maybelline define a lash now - jury still out as not used it much
