    Rimmel sexy curves mascara is brill

    separates and curls each lash
    I like this one too. It seems to separate my lashes better, make them longer and stand out more.

    I've tried the Maybelline Colossal volum express one, and it doesn't seem to do much too my eyelashes. The brush is way too big too, that it ends up messy and/or poking myself in the eye with it. Although that may be slightly to do with the fact that i don't have very many eyelashes. :dontknow:

    Aldi mascara is actually amazing. No joke. No clumps massive lashes. Virgin Vie stuff is always great!
    I didn't know Aldi had a make up range.

    I've tried the Virgin Vie one, I can't say I was impressed much. It's the one that had the lengthening white brush.

    Yves Saint Laurent False Cils mascara is gorgeous
    I ditto this.
    It also doesn't make your lashes feel like plastic and hard like a lot of cheaper brands - like Maybelline and Rimmel do.

    They sometimes do!! The foundation is good too. Honestly, not just because it's cheap.

    Ewww no I always hate them white brushes.

    I've been using the Dior Diorshow Mascara for years, and I'm so pleased with it. I usually get it in tax-frees at airports, but if I run out before travelling, I go to proper make-up shops. I LOVE the brush, it is nice and big, and it gives me more of a volumous effect at the roots, instead of just long, black lashes, if you get me..
    Do you think its worth the money? andd does it make your eyelashes look really full/big?!

    I'd rather spend a little extra for something I like rather than spend any money at all on something I don't like. One lasts me about a year though, I rarely buy a new mascara.

    I just tried them both again, the "Maybelline Colossal" seperates the eyelashes badly and doesn't give that "full" look, while the Dior one isn't as runny, and therefore gives a fuller look. I'd say it gives more volume than Maybelline.

    Try it once, it's definitely worth the money (and it isn't too expensive)

    I don't think there's much point buying expensive mascaras because you have to change them so often.

    I like:

    Revlon Double Twist
    L'Oreal Millionize - this by far my favourite
    Maybelline The Collosal (sp)
    Rimmel Lash Extender

    I use the basic Maybelline pink/green one. I've tried loads of expensive mascaras, and this is by far the best and the cheapest. I've never had an issue with clumping with it--and since I'm naturally blonde but dyed my hair dark, I wear tons of mascara.

    The most important thing is to replace your mascara frequently--otherwise it dries out and starts to clump (and can give you infections.)

    I used to use one from Avon that was brill! Sadly, they discontinued it I also used a double ended rich and length one, I can't remember the name, it's probably still with the rest of my make-up somewhere as I don't remember throwing it out - one end was white and thickened them and the other was your normal mascara, it was amazing!

    Next best thing i've used was the Maybelline collosal that everyone else is talking about. I've also found that when moisturising if you get a TINY amount and just apply it from the roots of your lashes up it makes the mascara go on better, whether that's just me or what, or I use a really cheap clear mascara as a base before hand.

    Not tried the falsies yet, one of my friends told me not to get it as when she tried it her eyes stuck together! So, I don't know whether to or not.
