Any recommendations?

Soap and glory one with the fat brush - can't remember the name, sorry!

Is that One that thickens the lashes?

Should have said I have long eye lashes so it's the thickening type I need.

Max factor 2000 calorie or the one in the green tube .. can't remember which one! Both really good.

Used to get 2000 calorie but didn't like it as much last time. Will have a look for the other one.

I like Rimmel Sacndaleyes Retro Glam, I have long lashes and this stuff thickens them up and hasn't flaked or smudged on me yet. I think it's priced around £7 or thereabouts

Bourjois ultra care glamour (something like that) white tube anyhow. It nourishes and thickens your lashes.

I ordered an Elizabeth Arden one on groupon for about £8 the other day. It is fab.

Max Factor Masterpiece Max.

All different opinions! Not sure which to go for!

RiojaHaze Sun 01-Dec-13 11:38:18

L'oreal Lash Architect just to throw another one in there! 3 for 2 in Boots so 3 for £20 at the mo.

georgedawes Sun 01-Dec-13 11:56:46

Even more confused! Got the 2000 calorie one on 3 for 2 last time and it was rubbish. Don't have much money so want to get it right this time.

Another vote for Masterpiece Max.

I've just opened a Max Factor Masterpiece, haven't used this one recently. It's really good. Goes on nicely, builds up to a fairly dramatic look. This Bourjois one is quite good as well but I prefer the brush on the MaxFactor one.

Rimmel London Lash Accelarator Endless Lash Mascara - a bright green/yellow tube and black lid. Stayed put after lots of crying and got complimented on it. I hate the chunky ones - they do nothing for my lashes and I end up with smudges on my lids!

My friend who's a nail technician used Faux Effect by YSL for years but changed to MFMPM on my recommendation. She now raves about it and has converted many clients!

timidviper Sun 01-Dec-13 14:35:08

Masterpiece Max won The Times best mascara award at some point I think. I like it

georgedawes Sun 01-Dec-13 16:51:16

Ok think I'm convinced to go for the max factor one, thanks!

Lash architect +1

Another vote for Max Factor ( but I prefer waterproof one)

Max Factor Falsh Lash Effect Fusion. I have short blonde lashes and it makes them long and dark

Max Factor False Lash Effect is the best mascara I've ever used - better than ones twice the price. Masterpiece Max is also great, but I prefer the brush of False Lash.

Another vote for Max Factor False Lash Effect. Max Factor do great mascaras (although to be honest I'd be hard pushed to tell the difference between False Lash Effect/Masterpiece/2000 Cals in a blind test...)

ElizabethBathory Mon 02-Dec-13 10:53:49

that's true actually stephen - I'd say 2000 cal is slightly more clumpy and false lash slightly more volumising, but that could be my imagination!
