Ok, I'm after a decent mascara that actually stays put. I'm fed up with panda eyes! Just seems to end up under my eyes and not stay put!

TIA

My favourite is Barry M That's How I Roll.

There’s a good pink and green one (the case not the actual mascara), think it’s Maybelline.

Max Factor masterpiece- is great!
Most of Max Factor in fact grin

Blinc doesn't move at all

Benefit they're real

Pur Volume Vixen (awful name, only mascara that doesn't ever smudge on me) - Clinique Lash Power is meant to be really good too.

MrsPicklesonSmythe Sun 10-Dec-17 15:22:36

Estée Lauder double wear lengthening was the only one that worked for my but I now use their little black primer as a sealer for other mascaras and that works really well.
I also really love Aldi's 3D mascara

QueenOfAccidentalDeathStares Sun 10-Dec-17 15:23:24

another vote for Benefit they're real

MrsPicklesonSmythe Sun 10-Dec-17 15:23:39

Blinc doesn't move but looks dreadful. Doesn't build so might as well not be wearing anything. Can use it as a sealer for better mascaras but not worth it for the price.

RiskIt4Biscuit Sun 10-Dec-17 15:49:22

Most normal mascaras smudge on me, but tubing mascaras are great - I really like Estee Lauder Double Wear and Clinique Lash Power.
The L'Oreal beauty tubes mascara in a red/white tube is great too. It has a white primer that I don't care for though.

Ooh thank you for all your recommendation. Much appreciated! smile

Shutupanddance1 Sun 10-Dec-17 16:19:59

I didn’t like Benefit they’re real but I use Lancôme Hypnose mascara and think it’s acs

DollyLlama Sun 10-Dec-17 17:41:54

Lancôme grandiose. Probably the best make up item I have ever purchased! Well was actually a gift I would never have bought myself originally but I would never go back.

L'Oréal Babydoll smile

Max Factor Masterpiece

Mac extended play - only budges with water

NewBrian Sun 10-Dec-17 21:30:43

I second L’Oréal babydoll. It’s my favourite and I have quite a few higher end ones like benefit, urban decay etc.

NisekoWhistler Sun 10-Dec-17 21:36:45

Blinc mascara, get it on eBay, it's fantastic!

LentilBaby Sun 10-Dec-17 21:46:11

Another one for Benefit They’re Real!

formerbabe Sun 10-Dec-17 21:53:09

Max factor...2000 calorie
Lancome...hypnose

misstiggywinkle21 Sun 10-Dec-17 21:54:55

Tried virtually all the mascaras on this thread and Bobbi Brown Smokey Eye mascara beats them all hands down. No smudge or flake, lengthening and volumising without clumps, my favourite ever.,

RubbishMantra Sun 10-Dec-17 22:59:24

I've tried most of these on here, most recently Clinique Lash Power, which is OK... I really haven't found anything better than Max Factor Masterpiece in all my many years of wearing mascara though. It builds nicely and doesn't give me panda eyes.
