Layering mascara?

Does everyone just bung on two coats of the same mascara or have you tried using two different mascaras like this? (Warning:the video is annoying, but she has v. impressive looking lashes!)

And those of you who do alternate layers, do you apply a lengthening formula first, then a volumising one after, or vice versa? 3 for 2 on in Boots so might get experimenting over the weekend if you have any recommendations?

Interesting video -she brushes the mascara on the top of the eyelashes then upwards (I'd have thought that would take out the curl from the eyelash curlers)

I have the most scabby eyelashes ever .I'm using Revitalash but it's not showing any results though I'm perservering. My eyebrows are going great guns with the Revitalash Brow .

It came with a primer which is blue - I can't say it makes a huge difference but every little helps.
I have Benefit "They're Real" and it is definately a one-coat-only for me, it sticks my lashes together sad

My favourite is "Mally Beauty" mascara with a dash of blue on the ends for extra colour (80s throwback type)

You need Lancôme hypnose, it's amazing, you can keep layering it on and every coat glides on . I've been asked if I have false ones on whilst wearing it highly recommend .

How long have you been using the Revitalash 70? It took at least 3 weeks for me to see an improvement.

I like the Mally volumising mascara, but am looking for some cheaper alternatives.

Tammy - I've never tried the Hypnose ones. I had a sample of the doll eyes one and it had a horrid rose scent. Every time I blinked I kept getting wafts of old lady rose scent! Do they all smell like that?

Never noticed old lady smell,just love it .

She has the freakiest long lashes I've ever seen! They have to be lash extensions or Latisse surely?

My lashes are sh*te. I've found that thickening ones make them look crap, stuck together & stubby. I prefer the defining/lengthening kind.

Hypnose is amazing. I always layer it, never tried it with a different type of mascara though...

Hmm might have to shell out for a Hypnose tube then. £22 though! Or maybe see if I can get a mini/sample one from EBay.

And yes she does have freakishly long lashes (but I think they are her own!)

MooMin I've used Revitalash since about mid January time (so now 7-8 weeks).
I used mascara and curlers today and I thought oh, very nice -which for my eyelashes is a huge improvement.
My eyebrows though look miles better with the brow serum grin

Revitalash does take a bit of time to work I think. It's only when I curl my lashes too do I see how long they are (otherwise they tend to point straight out and down!)
