Tell me your favourite Mascara, style-istas! My main concern is under-eye smudging ... my bottom lashes touch my cheeks when I smile and I tend to wear very moisturising foundation, so I want to avoid transfer if possible. Don't want waterproof. Don't want fibres. Price not really an issue, but I recognise that there are some star products out there at modest prices.
I'll second Max Factor Masterpiece. I've had loads of expensive premium brand mascaras and that one blows them all out of the water. I don't do bottom lashes for daytime make up but for a nighttime face I will give them a very light coating then immediately blot most of the mascara off onto a tissue. Gives definition without smudging.
Thank you so much! I'm obviously stuck in a timewarp makeup-wise, as I've always used mascara on bottom lashes and didn't even know there was a special mascara for them! And the blotting suggestion makes a lot of sense, Sparkle . I'll take all your suggestions on board when I go shopping later this week.
I'm a recent convert to Blinc mascara (bought via Amazon) after asking for recommendations for a non smudging mascara on MN. I never wear mascara on my lower lashes but still always had smudges under my eyes by mid morning. But, no longer - I feel like it's transformed the way I look - less tired and younger, I love it
I love Max Factor False Lash Effect, and S&G Thick and Fast, but I had a makeover the other day at the Armani counter in Selfridges, and the mascara the make-up artist used was amazing. as it should be, for twenty five quid
