L'oreal Telescopic Explosion

Bourjois Coup De Theatre Mascara

Are they any good for short stubby lashes like mine!

no but there is a free benefit mascara with this months glamour - gotta be worth a try for £2.

I too have short stubby everything lashes and have yet to find a decent mascara

Haven't tried those ones but love Dior ShowIconic

The L'Oreal one is bloody awful - all clumpy and teh brush just isn't designed to help brush mascara onto lashes - a fairly basic requirement, I'd have thought.

Benefit mascara always used to be rubbish, as they put all their resources into developing and flogging their 'fix-its'. They actively encourage sales assistants to ignore customer requests and go for the hard sell on 5 prescribed items.

Having said that, for 2 quid you can't really go wrong.

Lancome definicils is the best mascara by far.

You need to try the new tube mascara like this

It is not the one you linked to but the Bourjois Coup de Theatre 2 in 1 mascara was recomended a few weeks ago in the Sunday Times Style.

You do not have to faff about putting white gunk under black (!) and I think a great definition mascara.

If you want Volume I would go for Diorshow Blackout (pricier though!)

I swear by good ol' YSL Faux Cils. It does go a bit clumpy after a while but it is fantastic for thickening and lengthening.

This is the Bourjois one I meant to link to. I got the wrong one.
