No7 mascara

Bought one at the end of Feb and it's dried up already, very annoying.

Before I go back to Boots to complain, it'd be useful to know if it's a known No7 problem/just my mascara/whatever other reason.

I'm usually a Mabelline Great Lash girl and gave this a go hoping it would be better. Any other recommendations out there? I don't buy L'Oreal out of principle and have not like Rimmel in the past. I like cheap and cheerful mascaras!

Max Factor 2000 Calorie is the best mascara on the market.

Better than all the Dior, Lancome and other mega-££ ones.

Why do you not buy L'oreal?

Stevie77 Tue 14-May-13 16:00:57

Because I don't like the company

I only use No7 mascara (previously the navy blue waterproof one, now Lash Adapt which is fantastic) and I have never had this problem. If you can swap it for Lash Adapt you will probably be very pleased with the results - it's long-lasting, easy to remove but doesn't smudge or run in the rain, doesn't clump and IME doesn't dry out quickly. I'm still using a tube from my wedding last July (even though I know I should have binned it months ago)!

Max factor 200 calories smudges very easily and is flaky IMO

I don't know. I just don't.

Elle magazine has a free benefit mascara ok its small but this is how I tend to buy my mascaras lately. I had a free clinique one once which was really good.I think it was high definition but pricey I know. I bought no 7 extreme lashes and it was rubbish, horrible plastic applicator and yes it did dry up quite quickly.

Boots claim to not test on animals. L'oreal are vile.

I use No7 and swear by it!

I use No 7 mascara all the time and have never had this problem before.

I used Boots no 7 for years but I hate the plastic brushes they use now. I like Maybelline but I keep an old bristle brush that I love, and dip that in and out to actually apply the stuff.
Much better than the spikey plastic applicators - I have ginger eyelashes so need to get mascara right to the bottom of my eyelashes. THe plastic applicators often scratch the inside ledge of my eyelids.

I do think the mascaras that are sold to be 'thicker' dry up quicker as, well, more gets loaded on the brush each time and applied to your eyelashes.

Lash Adapt s amazing so is the navy waterproof one. I have stopped using MF Masterpiece for Lash Adapt.

After 3 months' use I would expect any mascara to start drying up tbh.

Fib me too, that's why Lash Adapt is great as it has the old style brush.

Thanks everyone, I'm going to pop into the Boots I bought it from and see what they say. Will look at the Lash Adapt one - thanks!

Another vote for Lash Adapt - I've also had mine for ages and it's still going strong, other than that I'd recommend Estée Lauder Doublewear for weddings/swimming/occasions involving moisture. Ahem.
