Of mascaras that is. I have tried loads but none help with my spindly short lashes. I want length and fullness. Last two I have tried: too faced better than sex = amazing but flakes everywhere; benefit they're real= three fat eyelashes and crap to remove.

I know one of you lovelies have stumbled across the best mascara in the world and want to share your good fortune with me and the rest of mn. I'll try anything!

Lancôme doll eyes is lovely.

Look at Lisa Eldridge videos for advice.

Clinique High Impact or Dior Diorshow High Definition Lash Curler Mascara are both amazing

Max factor false lash - and Ive tried high end always gone back

Have you tried the "there real" remover?
I love the soap and glory one in the gold tube. One of the best I've ever used.
Also like the urban decay precision one.

Another for Benefit Rollerlash

YSL False Lash Effect or Diorshow Iconic. Do it.

Lancome volume a porter, I've tried loads and always end up going back to this one. I have recently found this article so might try some of the better looking ones.

Second vote for Lancôme Volume a Porter. Nothing beats it!

Lancôme hypnose. I often try new ones full of promise but I come back to Lancôme every time.

I have also spent a long time looking and this is by far the best I have tried. Imo, it's not so much the mascara product that's important, but the wand and I HATE those fat, old fashioned wiry fibre brushes. Give me a plastic one any day!

I mascara "cocktail": apply benefit rollerlash for volume and curl, then benefit they're real on the tips to build length

Always go back Max Factor False Lash Effect. Think it's the Voluminous one now, but using the brush from the previous version of it.

McTufty Sat 20-May-17 00:10:48

Max Factor Masterpiece. Always.

foodiefil Sat 20-May-17 00:13:12

Benefit They're Real = for proper volume lashes
Lancôme dolly eyes = day wear

RonaldMcDonald Sat 20-May-17 01:25:22

Wonderlash clarins

memyselfandaye Sat 20-May-17 01:27:47

Max Factor False Lash Effect.

The waterproof one is actually bombproof.

KickAssAngel Sat 20-May-17 01:39:52

Lots of Vit D to help hair/lash growth, and Maybelline.

Bourjois volume clubbing in ultra black makes a huge difference to my short lashes, plus I use Rapid Lash which has helped lengthen them a bit.

MugwumpJism Sat 20-May-17 07:53:36

Hate to say this but mascara coats lashes, it doesn't miraculously produce long and thick from short and spindly.

I have a lash lift, it's makes a hell of a difference

TeddyIsaHe Sat 20-May-17 08:02:37

Bobbi Brown smokey eyes mascara, makes my stubby straight out lashes long and fluttery. I spend half my day fluttering them in mirrors at myself now 😂

MrSlant Sat 20-May-17 08:05:36

I have short stubby lashes that stick straight out with no curl what so ever. I've just got them permed and tinted for the second time and every time I look in the mirror I have a little internal <squee> because they are now so pretty. Shallow I know but I've had invisible lashes my entire life and now they are so pretty grin. I barely use mascara now and it used to be something I'd never leave the house without, even if I was dying.

By Terry. I bought this recently in Space NK in Canary Wharf on the sales assistant's recommendation. It is by far the best mascara I have ever used. And it's cruelty-free.
