The new 'extra length' No7 mascara being advertised by Keeley Hawes - is it any good?

I'm normally loyal to my MF masterpiece masacara, but...No7 are doing 3 for 2 and I was wondering whether it might be worth switching?

I'm obviously an advertiser's dream

Its oj - nowt special, but then I have yet to find my "dream" mascara yet 0- I bought it last week as I had a £5 voucher thing, and if you bought the mascara you got a quad smokey eyeshadow free - so got the 2 of them for £6 - bargin

On the same subject, is it only me that thinks her eyes you frikkin ridiculous on the advert.... she looks like Marcel Marso (sp)

i bought a rimmel one last week, as it was 3 for 2 on rimmel and it is

I bought it and it is ok ..I am very lucky and have long eyelashes anyway so I am not sure if that is helpful. I love have dramatic eyes it makes me feel preeetty but it does do what it says I think..hth

how fecking irritating is Keeley whatsit though? I love no7 makeup but that advert makes me want to punch her smug little lights out, and I am really not a violent person at all.

Mascara ok - smokey eye quad, really nice.

I can't buy it because I find her far too irritating.
I feel the mascara would be also.

fabio and kt am right with you...can't watch anything with the irritating madam in

personally reckon maybelline best mascara -always end up using it even when have splurged on expensive stuff

Most of these ads for mascara use false lashes. Mentions it in tiny writing at the bottom of the ad.

agree with poppy - used to use Clinique religiously but totally converted to Maybelline once I tried the one which comes in bright green packaging. Brilliant and half the price of Clinique too..

And she has scary eyeliner on in that add.

It's scares me how much her and Keira Knightly seem to be transforming into one person.

I agree her eyeliner in that ad is scarey!

Well, I have to say I'm not a Keeley fan as she is married to swoonsome Matthew MacFadyen envy.

I bought some yesterday and got a free smoky eyes palette which is very nice indeed. And I like the mascara. And it is lanolin free which is paramount in my choice of make up these days sad

Would recommend!

Still YSL False Eyelash Effect Mascara gives the best look to my Phil Mitchell eyelashes
