Can't afford my fave Chanel at the moment.

What's the best cheap alternative?

Collection 2000 waterproof mascara. Just as good as the pricey brands. smile

Boots natural collection I have found to be good. Disclaimer: I don't buy pricey brands of mascara, so I don't have that to compare it to.

However they only cost 3 for £5 so it may be worth experimenting to see if you like them.

I got lash boosting mascara from primark for £1. It's the best one I've found in ages!

I like Bourjois & Max Factor

Bourjois Liner effect

Is there only one bourjouis mascara? I don't want to buy the wrong one.

Can everyone be more specific than brand, there are often so many smile

Maybelline falsies is pretty good

Maybelline or Max Factor False Lash Effect. Both good and don't irritate eyes. Actually, I'm using an Avon one that I got free with a magazine and it's surprisingly good. I've got v sensitive eyes/contact lenses and I can't get on with most cheapo supermarket brands but Maybelline and Max Factor are both fine.

I would second the Boujois liner effect mascara and it's really cheap on Amazon for some reason.

Maybelline Great Lash is a fantastic basic one for around £4.99. All of the Maybelline Colossal range (I'm loving the smoky eye one at the moment) is fantastic.

I bought the Aldi Lacura Volume Mascara last week, just to try it. £2.99 - I think.

It seems okay ish. No clumping. Doesn't give hugely voluminous lashes, more natural look. Bit hard to get off too actually.. Hmmmmm.... not selling it am I?

Max Factor 2000 Calorie.

The dog's bollocks of budget mascaras. And believe me I've tried them all.

I even prefer it to the ££ Lancome ones.

Grow luscious by Revlon. In the green tube. Under a tenner and really good.

I'm using Barbara Daly from Tesco - I can't believe how good it is. It's still quite new but no lumps or smudges and my eyelashes look really vampy!

mosschops30 Tue 09-Oct-12 19:42:46

Thank you all so much, think I'm gonna try the bourjouis one or Barbara daly because I love her primer.
Hopefully I can find one as amazing as my beloved Chanel smile

Max Factor 2000 Calorie.

MsOnatopp Tue 09-Oct-12 19:45:38

bare escentuals. Wow. Just wow. Makes my lashes so long (got a free sample so not sure of ££)

mosschops30 Tue 09-Oct-12 19:49:14

Ooh a couple of votes for max factor now, which would maybe be another choice.
Will have to check out prices

I have the Miss Sporty Curved Brush £1.99. Doesn't rub off, gives decent volume. I bought it on a whim, but it's the best one I've had in ages.

Iatemyskinnyperson Tue 09-Oct-12 20:08:54

It's the Bourjois Volume Glamour Ultra Care that I like. Really volumising fluttery lashes.

LittlePandaBear Tue 09-Oct-12 20:29:44

I've just bought the L'Oreal 4D false lash one and it's great, and I'm very fussy about mascara!

mosschops30 Tue 09-Oct-12 21:13:22

I have just bought the 2000 calorie one as it was only a fiver with free delivery smile
so it better be good! wink
