Need a new one but I'm clueless and have spent all my money on foundation hmm

Max Factor Masterpiece Max.

The best mascara on the high st. Better than most high end ones come to that.

I've always found the max factor 2000 calories one quite good. I don't really 'get' mascara though so I'm no expert

Yes, and you will be surprised. Superdrug NYC mascara (various builds and shades) is absolutely bloody amazing for about £4.00. I have tried them all, used to be a slave to Clinique, heard about this one and I wouldn't use anything else now smile

I used to buy very expensive mascara all the time but never found a good one. The best I used was Loreal Million Lash mascara which was at the cheaper end of the scale (but still just over a tenner).

I have been skint recently so looked at reviews on Boots and found the Natural Collection ones have amazing reviews. Decided to give one a try as I didn't mind wasting £1.99 if it turned out to be shit, but it's so good! Much better than the crap expensive ones I've been using. I got the lash lengthening one. Definitely worth a try for the money.

I really like Max Factor clump defy.

I hate clumps.

I have crappy stumpy sparse eyelashes but have been asked if I had eyelash extensions with this.

Think it might be just over a tenner but often on offer.

Max factor clump defy or masterpiece are both fab. Masterpiece max is next for me to try.

I use miss manga by loreal, I have stupid little straight eyelashes and this makes them look fuller.

MaryBerrysEyelashes Wed 29-Jul-15 19:56:02

Manga is good. A very unique style. If you're wanting natural it's not for you.

I like Maybelline the colossal - mascara is the one thing I wouldn't spend money on, high end ones aren't any better than high street.

Agree with Madison. I have benefit "theyre real" at the moment- and while its good, the Max factor 2000 calorie one I have if just as good if not better for 1/3 of the price.

Thank you all, off to google them all now, sounds like max factor is good

Rimmel scandaleyes

I swear by Barry M's lash Vegas mascara. It is brilliant.

BeyondTheWall Wed 29-Jul-15 21:47:37

Another vote for miss manga

The Collection purple/green tube knocked Lancôme Hypnose for six for me

In the outlet aisle of my local tesco extra they have get technic mascaras. £1 each. I use a coat of the lengthening and one of the thickening and loads of people have commented

Maybeline - Colossal or similar in the range.

I've tried lots, and these don't smudge, and look great on.

Rimmell snake eyes is great too.

Though Maybelline and Collection are my usual brands and have been for years.

NanTheWiser Thu 30-Jul-15 17:00:38

Maybelline Sensational is very good too.

Just bought Masterpiece Max on the recommendations here and it's really good. Not sure if I prefer it to Clump Defy yet (different shape brushes) but it's glossy, goes on easily, no clumpy bits, no smudging.
