Best mascara?

I've been wearing Max Factor, but bought the new no 7 which is crap- took it back.
What does everyone use- I have quite long very dark lashes, and like waterproof.

Oh I was going to say No 7.

I find Maybelline quite good, and shock Collection 2000 shock

I like clinique!

Tough one, YSL Mascara Volume Effect Faux Cils or Dior Show. Lancome are always very good too

Max Factor Masterpiece Max. I know you have been using max factor but, I have tried them all and this is by far the best and most reasonable. The Chanel one I gave it away, it made my lashes look thicker but stumpy.

Agree with randomeuro: YSL faux cils is great. L'Oreal Voluminous is a v good budget-friendly option.

Avon supershock in black, best everrrrrr

Rimmel magnif'eyes is fab-no eyelash curler needed and is really lengthening too.

BonjourIvresse Fri 23-Oct-09 20:57:07

I like maybelline great lash.

hatesponge Fri 23-Oct-09 21:09:14

max factor false lash effect is really good.

Christian Dior (the one with Cashmere) is great as well.

Estee Lauder Magnascopic is amaaaazing grin
Have tried others, nothing compares

max factor aqualash,no runs,stays on even when scuba diving smile

facebookaddict Fri 23-Oct-09 21:24:58

Alypaly !!!! Soooo true. But I am grieving as I went to buy it last week and they don't make it anymore so Boots didn't have any.

Gutted as I have worn it for over 10 years nonstop (I never take it off just apply ontop) and am always being complimented on my eyelashes.

It's the only make up I wear and I am bereft at the thought of being without it......

max factor 2000 calorie. Super good.

facebookaddict Fri 23-Oct-09 21:34:49

Chattermouse This is the one I am using but am still appalled at the black smearing I get as I've used waterproof for 10 years....

chattermouse Fri 23-Oct-09 21:41:40

That's odd. I don't get any smearing with it at all and i wear tonnes. In fact it is one of the very few that do not smear a bit on me. I used to find that estee lauder ones did not smear either - but, they are tres pricey. max Factor is value for money.

facebookaddict Fri 23-Oct-09 21:45:49

well I'm referring to situations when all non waterproof ones would smear - crying, showers, in the morning - as I got into bad habits with waterproof...never taking it off!!! blush

I def think it is the best out there (now that Aqua Lash has gone)

hazeyjane Fri 23-Oct-09 21:47:48

Maybelline Great Lash, have tried loads of others, always come back to this. It doesn't clump, smudge, look 'fibrous', irritate my eyes and it is dirt cheap.

chattermouse Fri 23-Oct-09 21:51:04

Don't max factor do any waterproof at all now then? Surely they have replaced your old one with something new?

facebookaddict Fri 23-Oct-09 21:54:00

They do a waterproof one but not in the same range and I tried it but the wand is stupidly small and the mixture is really runny. Just not a good replacement.

I can't believe they withdrew it. I would happily have bought a lifetime's supply upfront.

(Okay I realise that this is a little psychotic but I am pale and blonde and this is the only make up I ever wear. It's like a piece of me!)

alypaly Fri 23-Oct-09 21:54:07

facebookaddict .....OMG what am i going to wear as none of the others are truly waterproof.
