Mascara - probably been asked a million times

What is a super duper mascara that will make my lashes look long and full? I used the have a Lancôme one but it was too wet and hard to put on because of that

Maybelline Lash Sensational! It never fails to give me incredible long lashes that lasts all day long, no transferring above/below eye and no clumps! I love the curved shape of the wand. Benefit They're Real is also good but I prefer lash sensational and its about a third of the price.

You can never ask that question too many times on here....

Thanks to the amazing MN S&B board may I recommend my new fave?

It's the only mascara that makes my piggy lashes look long and it's smudge free too. A snip at £3.

I value it more highly than my Boots No7 gold tube mascara and that's really saying something.

Thanks ladies I'm going away tomorrow so have the whole of the duty free shop to browse! I may have to pay a visit to boots instead!

I've been using mascara daily for 30 years. Best one I've ever used is L'Oréal Miss Hippie. Gives great volume and length with only one coat, and most importantly to me, doesn't smudge or leave dark marks under the eyes.

Younique Epic is excellent

L'Oréal Baby Doll- about £8 and amazing smile

I like Maybelline Big Shot I think its called. About £7 in a goldy/yellow tube.

Bourjois Lash effet liner
Rimmel volume flash, I have used this for over 10 years and it never fails me.
Soap and Glory, thick and fast hd mascara ( it's a gold tube )

Dior Pump N Volume...

I have tried so, so, so many and this is the best yet. Closely followed by Benefit They're Real.

Hi, I've tried loads of mascaras over the years but L'Oréal miss manga is by far the best. It's a bit like miss hippie! X

L'Oriel Miss Hippie is ace.

I loathe all NYX mascaras. They are fully wank.

Bobbi Brown smokey eyes. Despite the name I find it great for every day use: makes the lashes fuller and longer but not clumpy and never irritates my eyes.

I always go back to yves saint laurent false effect the classic one. Love it

MidCenturyist Thu 12-Oct-17 22:02:50

Maybelline Lash Sensational in the purple tube! Best I've ever tried and lasts all day without crumbling/smudging.

MinesaPinot Thu 12-Oct-17 22:48:00

Having previously lauded Max Factor Masterpiece Max and Benefit They're Real, I have now discovered the Clinique High Impact. Lovely texture, good brush and make my lashes look longer without looking false.

Of course, being the fickle creature that I am, I'll probably have a new favourite next week.

Another vote for lash sensational. I don't think I will ever use another mascara now I've discovered it.
