Desperate for a new one and need recommendations!

I am loving a By Terry Lash Expert one - it's sort of a duo, one ordinary brush that then twists into a spiral which apparently increases volume. It's the only mascara I've ever had that really does add volume and drama while keeping lashes looking natural and not smudging or flaking. It stays on all day but it's easy to get off in the evening. Not cheap but only a bit more expensive than say Benefit and FAR better.

Lancome hypnose volume a porter

JaneJeffer Thu 24-May-18 18:21:48

Benefit bad gal

ChesterFuckingDraws Thu 24-May-18 18:34:15

Benefit they're real. Doesn't flake and doesn't leave me with panda eyes.

Clinique chubby. But Lancome Hypnose is also lovely.

BusterGonad Thu 24-May-18 19:26:39

Benefit Roller Lash.

Chanel Le Volume without a doubt

yolandafostersfridge Thu 24-May-18 20:05:04

Chanel Le Volume. Worth every single penny and that’s coming from someone who is a massive fan of drugstore mascaras!

frasier Thu 24-May-18 20:05:37

Benefit, they’re real. Best mascara ever. I really do get asked if my lashes are real lol!

threefeet Thu 24-May-18 20:08:56

Lancôme Hypnose.

ZenNudist Thu 24-May-18 20:13:05

Dior iconic

trinitybleu Thu 24-May-18 20:13:08

Ooohhh, Lancome hypnose volume a porter.... But only just. Also love Younique Epic but can never remember to order it soon enough so often end up having an emergency trip to Boots for the Lancome.

redfragglebiker Thu 24-May-18 20:14:43

Lancome Hypnose for sure. I've had to give mine up as I can't justify the cost on maternity pay and I'm gutted.

Eenymeeny123 Thu 24-May-18 20:18:18

Collection super lash, was recommended on here and it's fab

RiskIt4Biscuit Thu 24-May-18 20:22:38

Estee Lauder Double Wear or Clinique Lash Power.
Both tubing mascaras, so they don't smudge or flake on me.

stoplickingthetelly Thu 24-May-18 20:32:57

Lancome hypnose here too, but it's so expensive and drys up quickly.

WindyBee Thu 24-May-18 21:18:34

Primark £1. seriously! I used the free Clinique ones when i got them and decided to buy one for a change. Its the clumpiest cloggiest mascara i have ever used.
I gave it to my 14 yr old and went back to Primark.

Moonflower12 Thu 24-May-18 21:24:17

Lancôme here too!

friendlyflicka Thu 24-May-18 21:24:34

I am a real make up snob and have had all the expensive ones for years: dior, chanel, YSL, Guerlain etc always.

And then recently got a Max Factor False Lash Effect. Much much better than any of them. Honestly.

I am still sticking to the rest of my brands because it is pure pleasure for me to buy luxury make up, but couldn't find a mascara I was happy with.

Maybe partly to do with suddenly needing waterproof. This stays on, but can also be removed without panda eyes the next day. It doesn't go clumpy and it costs £10 less than all the others I have been buying

FinallyGotAnIPhone Thu 24-May-18 21:25:46

Any Lancôme one. Max factor if you don’t want to pay for Lancôme.

BigRedBoat Thu 24-May-18 21:39:22

Tarte lights, camera, lashes or benefit they're real
