Recommendations please for natural looking mascara

I have my lashes tinted but sometimes want to give them a little boost for going out.

Does anyone have any suggestions for a really natural looking mascara please? I don't want thickening or lengthening ( anything obvious is v aging on the more mature woman, I think). Just to enhance my own lashes a bit.

Dark brown, black or even clear .

Prefer premium or midrange ( eg Clinique) to high st/ cheap, though might consider Boots.

Clinique Naturally Glossy - an oldie but a goodie.

I second the Clinique NG. I always go back to it after trying others.

Bare Minerals. So good, eyelashes don't clump together at all, seems to extend eyelashes but not in an overly fake way. I swear by it.

Thanks - the Clinique NG one is an old favourite of mine too and I think I'll go for that again for the moment.

Thanks also for the Bare Minerals suggestion - will have a look at that next time I'm in a store with a BM counter.

don't go for the new maxfactor no clump's crap and it clumps

I was just going to recommend the Max Factor No Clump one! It's actually converted me to wearing mascara, which I used to hate. smile

Sorry just being honest. Rightly or wrongly, Boots No 7 is one of the few 'budget' brands I've ever used since I was a teenager . I' m not saying my prejudices are necessarily rational ...

Gold tube Max Factor Masterpiece in brown is very flattering smile

Thanks. Will check that out too.

Dr Hauschka not only is very natural looking, black or brown, but actually is made from all natural ingredients too. I find it never clumps, I never have to comb through lashes unless I have made a finger-fumble. I used to say the Clinique Glossy one was best before using this one.
