Longtime user of Maybelline Great Lash here, but it's just not working for me any more. Any thoughts? Preferably something I can get in Boots/Superdrug.

Max factor clump defy in the purple tube or 2000 calorie by them is also good.

Soap and glory thick and fast is good.

maxfactor masterpiece mascara love it!

Do you mean greater than £10? I like Lancôme hypnose if so

Boots natural collection. Only about £2 and it's amazing.

Why does it have to mer than £10? I love Max Factor 2000 Calorie - have used it for years and always come back to it if I'm tempted to try something new. Think it's about £8. The only other one I like is Mally mascara but think its only available in the UK on QVC.

I presume OP meant < rather than > smile. L'oreal lash architect is my current favourite.

Skinheadmermaid Sat 03-May-14 12:24:34

Miss manga by l'oreal. I loves it. Its £8 i think.

I bought 2 Soap and Glory mascaras (after them being recommended on here grin )

The one in the gold tube is lovely, the other one (silver tube Thick & Fast) has a huge brush.

I only buy sealed mascaras, never ones that are on display that someone could open and prod at.

Anyone tried the No7 in the red glittery tube?

Oooh yes Mally mascara is brilliant (QVC)

MyrtleDove Sat 03-May-14 13:44:11

Sorry to hijack but can anyone recommend one with a proper bristle brush? Rubber brushes eg Max Factor Masterpiece are rubbish on my lashes. I think Max Factor 2000 Calorie does...?

Aque1ven Sat 03-May-14 14:46:18

Yes, Max Factor 2000 Calories does have a bristle brush, brilliant stuff.

MintyChops Sat 03-May-14 14:47:23

Max Factor Masterpiece is great!

MyrtleDove Sat 03-May-14 14:56:33

Oh and just to contradict myself, Avon Supershock Max (green/teal tube) has rubber bristles but chunky, almost conical ones and is really good. £10 but often on offer.

The cheap range in boots. can't remember it's name but it's £2 and brilliant . I've tried loads of expensive ones. I use this as my every day one .

thisonehasalittlecar Sat 03-May-14 22:39:45

Of course I meant <. Maths not my strong point! Some great suggestions here, I'll get down to Boots tomorrow and start working my way through them!

I used to love that maybelline great lash too but then found it started drying too quickly on my lashes and getting a bit clumpy.

another vote for max factor's 2000 calorie around 7.99 in boots (I far prefer the bristle brushes, can't seem to get on with the plastic ones), I always used to buy the straight brush one but as boots do a 3 for price of 2 (and I always like to have stocks of this mascara in case they ever change it) I thought I'd try the curved brush for a change and I love it. find it easier to apply without smudging.

Another vote for Max Factor 2000 calorie. Magic stuff - every other mascara gives me panda eyes.

SirChenjin Sat 03-May-14 23:03:30

Max Factor 2000 calorie (following a MN recommendation). Bloody brilliant stuff - better than many of the ones I've had costing ££££s

Dogmatix34 Sat 03-May-14 23:04:20

Max factor 200 calorie for me too although I quite like Rimmel false lash effect

Dogmatix34 Sat 03-May-14 23:04:47

2000 calorie rather, I put it on a diet!

Emus Sat 03-May-14 23:09:25

Yes I have 70 (I too was tempted by the look). Sadly it's rubbish. I asked before I bought it what was good about it and was told it won't clump. Sadly that's not true, it clumped almost immediately and is really thick and unnatural. Definitely won't buy it again!

bishboschone Sun 04-May-14 08:16:57

I'm also a bjg fan of max factor 2000 calorie but I do think the cheap one I recommend is nearly as good and it doesn't clump . I use max factor for evenings out as I have long eye lashes and I can look a bit overdone in the day with it. I think the range I meant is something collection.. anyway its all cheap bit don't let that put you off -
