What's the best not-too-expensive hypoallergenic mascara?
After years of wearing contact lenses, I've become prone to getting eye infections when I wear mascara. I can tint my eyelashes no problem, but I really miss that more bulked-out look that mascara gives.
I've tried using a cheaper mascara and replacing it often - every two weeks, but it still leaves my eyes a little itchy. I don't really want to pay a lot for a mascara, but I don't know any cheaper hypoallergenic brands. Does anyone have any experience of eye infections, and mascaras to either avoid, or ones you have found worked best?
That's the mascara that I'm currently using, and it is awful! The No 7 one in a gold tube? Seems to make my eyes a little itchy, and it's really difficult to remove. Think I'll try your suggestion - I really can't see much alternative.
I have this problem too. So much so that I've pretty much given up wearing contacts. I also like Clinique (Naturally Glossy mascara) and Maybelline mascara is the only cheapo one that hasn't given me bother. I've tried lots of different Maybelline ones and they've all been fine.
