Anyone found the holy grail of mascaras? I don't like Benefit 'They're Real' before anyone mentions it. I was intrigued by blinc but some reviews said it really clumps your lashes together.

Any ideas?

I spent years looking for the best mascara ever, I tried all of the high end ones, but kept going back to Max Factor Masterpiece Max and so I have now given up as I've found it to be much better than all of the rest. I liked Chanel Sublime, but I found that it was amazing for a couple of weeks and then would become less amazing.

I've just bought the L'Oreal butterfly wings one and I'm really impressed. My lashes are incredibly long after 2 coats.

It's not particularly volumising though.

Benefits They're Real is a blighter to get off hmm

I like Bad Gal (but not Bad Gal Plum it gives me an unattractive purple under-eye look)
Mally Volumising

Tried Soap & Glory but the brush is huge and cumbersome.

I've found that Boots No.7 and Maxfactor mascaras are generally good for not smudging. And I find this one is good as a budget one for separating/not smudging:

I like Yves saint Laurent faux cils. It doesn't clump lashes together and definitely increases volume. Also, I got a sample of Estée Lauder sumptuous extreme a few months back and found that good too.

Clarins wonder perfect is surprisingly good

TheFillyjonk Thu 21-Aug-14 01:37:45

Boots Fanomenal lashes.

Doesn't smudge, doesn't flake, it separates, it adds volume, it flicks, the wand is easy to use and not too fat... I always, always go back.

Givenchy noir couture 4 in 1 mascara is the only mascara that does not irritate my irrationally sensitive eyes. It is very expensive but I buy the trial size from Sephora so it is a bit easier on the pocket.

I rotate between Smashbox and the Maybelline pink & green one.

I do quite like the Benefit one but only for an evening.

I really like Bobbi Brown Everyday Mascara and Max Factor Masterpiece is consistently amazing!! And my new Blinc was is ok... Just ok!

I have been converted to Rimmel rockin curves mascara after trying loads , expensive brands over the years . The brush has a great curved shape and I can really build up volume and length if I keep applying a few coats .

Avon Infinitize (orange tube). It makes length, volume AND curls them so I don't need to bother. I loves it!! thanks

My current top 3 are the Mally volumising one, Tarte's Lights camera lashes, and Urban Decay Cannonball for my waterproof choice.

Blinc is my favourite. You can build up with the lash primer.

I got a sample of a Make Up For Ever mascara from Sephora and it was also really good but I like the fact that Blinc washes off.

PicnicGatecrasher Thu 21-Aug-14 16:31:50

I Second smashbox.

hellsbellsmelons Thu 21-Aug-14 16:32:20

I'm no expert but after seeing another thread on here I bought maxfactor 2000 calorie mascara and I really like it.
Doesn't make my eyelids feel too heavy.

MyGastIsFlabbered Thu 21-Aug-14 20:29:39

I've ordered YSL baby doll, will report back!

Andallmyhopeisgone Thu 21-Aug-14 21:06:14

Has anyone tried the new Dior mascara?
I'm put off buying expensive mascaras now since finding cheaper ones that are just as good if not better and also because I'm a bit skint
I'd spend more on a really good foundation but mascara needs replacing too often for me to afford/justify it.

Andallmyhopeisgone Thu 21-Aug-14 21:08:01

Oops, pressed post too soon - hope it's good OP <jealous> grin

OooOooTheMonkey Thu 21-Aug-14 21:12:38

Maybelline one by one. In a red tube with green writing is brilliant. No clumping and really colonising and lengthening. And cheap!!grin

OooOooTheMonkey Thu 21-Aug-14 21:13:16

Volumising! Not colonising. hmm

Elswyth Thu 21-Aug-14 21:24:15

I used to use slightly more expensive brands (usually Chanel or Estee Lauder), but after trying a fibre mascara, recommended on here, have been converted.

Lifeloveandlaundry Thu 21-Aug-14 22:15:39

I have a mascara from the US that is amazing! It's a fibre lash extension called 3d fibre lash and the effect is like falsies but they just wash off at the end of the day.
