Good everyday mascara

As it says in the title really.

What do you use as an everyday mascara?? I'm sorted for going out mascara (Benefit They're real) but I want something less intense for everyday. I'm lucky enough to have long black lashes naturally so don't want anything too extreme as it looks too much. I like Benefit Bad Girl but wondering if anyone has any other recommendations.

On a bit of a roll of Style and Beauty threads. This is my first one of three, so if you know anything about dog walking footwear or have an opinion on parkas come find my other ones!

I've used Max Factor for years, mainly 2000 calorie and more recently Masterpiece. Funnily enough, I am a recent convert to Benefit They're real for going out!
Hope that helps.

I recommend Maybelline's Colossal Volum Express mascara. It's in bright yellow packaging, so easy to find! Have had mine ages, has not gone dry or gunky, and is perfect for everyday (I love YSL faux cills for weekend/nights out).

I like Blinc for a natural look and it doesn't smudge at all so I don't have to be precious about it during the day.

Another vote for Maybelline. Mind you, I didn't get on with Benefit mascara!

Estee Lauder Double Wear. I wear it all the time as it doesn't smudge.

Agree Madamebovary- Estee Lauder Double Wear is fab as does't smudge and I also like Clinique Naturally Glossy but is not smudgeproof but love that it's not clompy looking.

I love Clinique naturally glossy mascara too - its the only mascara which makes my eyelashes look darker without them looking clownlike (I have long lashes and the ends get caught in my eyebrows if I wear clumpy mascara lol!!)

Bourjois Volume Glamour is good for every day. Doesn't smudge, not to over the top. Barry M do a good one too, in a purple tube. Lash Modelling I think it's called. Both under seven quid and better than some expensive ones I've tried. I love Benefit's They're Real best of all though.

I wear the Benefit one all the time, but only one layer for daytime.

Thanks all, will try some of those. Forgot to mention, I seem to be allergic to all Maybelline, so won't be trying those!

Blinc, because it doesn't move, only mascara I've tried that doesn't.
