I want length. With curl, and no clumping, and thicker lashes, but more than that - I want length.

What is the Very Best mascara for my (admittedly high) needs?

I am going to watch this thread as I need to know the answer to this question too .. but I need mine to be waterproof as hayfever season is fast approaching!

Lancome Hypnose does all you want.

I really like chanel but dior do very nice mascaras too.

I did buy "turbolash" by estee lauder yesterday. £27.40 blush not sure its worth it. It vibrates!!

I find that hypnose starts to clump very quickly.

Which is the nice dior mascara?

YSL Faux Cils extreme length. I bought it for special occasions, but have taken to wearing it every day now because i love it so much and everything else pales into insignificance

My sister is a beauty therapist and says the maxfactor masterpiece is a good one in the cheaper range.

Best one i've tried is Benefit Bad Girl Lash or something ridiculous like that! No clumps, really lovely to use, by far the best.

I have Dior iconic - love it. Did have the YSL but found it went very clumpy quickly. Otherwise the Loreal ones are fab for the cheaper range.

Which dior one then - Dior show or iconic?

cornsilk Mon 23-Feb-09 12:09:05

Although I don't need one yet as I have a lovely unopened prescriptives one (yay!) but I need to get this clear in my head for future frivolous purchases.

Estee Lauder Lash XL or Sumptuous are fab.

Benefit Bad Gal for me. Also, No 7 is good and doesn't smudge.
