Okay, I need a new mascara.
At the moment I'm using the Miss Sporty waterproof one as I figured I'd need a waterproof one for summer.. it's terrible! So clumpy, and it's dried my lashes out to NO end.
I either have 'smokey' eye make up - lots of kohl eyeliner, black/grey shadow - or I have no eyeshadow and just a slick of kohl eyeliner with a few coats of mascara. Which mascara would you suggest? I particularly like Bourjois as a make up brand overall, I'm a huge fan of their foundation. I'm sick to death of using Rimmel, their mascara never really did anything for me. I'm naturally quite fair although I dye my hair brown/black, and my eyelashes aren't very curly or thick so I'd love them to be thicker/darker.
I also need suggestions for a new eyeliner - I normally use the normal Rimmel kohl eyeliner but I'd like a change. Any particular ones I should be trying? I've got the BadGal one from Benefit but it's too thick for my liking; I like to be able to get right into the corner of my outer eye.
Thanks a lot!
Try the new one from Maybelline. It comes in a green tube and a) has a bendy brush so that you even get all of the smallest lashes and b) has some sort of rollerball technology inside that eliminates the clumps before the brush even emerges from the tube (really works too!). If you have a higher budget, Estée Lauder Projectionist mascara is also excellent.
Apropos eyeliner, I usually use the Bourjois Kohl pencil, and if I'm going to use liquid eyeliner then I use collection 2000 (I don't use it enough to warrant anything more expensive!).
I second that, the new Maybelline mascara is amazing! You don't get any clumps and it makes my eyelashes look really long and thick! It's also on offer in Superdrug at the moment!
The MaxFactor masterpiece max mascara is fab, doesn't come in waterproof though (but wearing waterproof everyday does dry your eyelashes right out anyway.) Although the Bourjois one that is half blue and half black (tube) is waterproof and is quite good as its got a white base coat so they don't get too dried out. I think it's called maxi frange or something. Benefit's Bad Gal mascara is good but I know a few people who found the brush to big to use without it smudging so you might not like it if you don't like the eyeliner.
I've used Benefit's bad gal eyeliner for a while but before that I used the rimmel kohl and never had any real problems with it and it's quite cheap so you could try that? Or number 7 do a nice eyeliner.
Do you think there's any difference between Rimmel's kohl eyeliner at like 2.99 and Bourjois kohl eyeliner at like 4.25?
I use Rimmel kohl eyeliner, it's okay, but smudges quite easily. The 'special eyes' or something one is less smudgy but not as black/dark.
I use a Christian Dior mascara that I got a year and a half ago and it still works fine...it's probably quite gross that I've used it that long, but I love it :P
I love Maxfactor masterpiece mascara like some of the other have said. It's really good at lengthening the lashes.
I love Max Factor's Masterpiece Max mascara and Bourjois Khol & Contour eyeliner.
If it's any consolation, the Bourjois kohl lasts ages.
I like it because I find it's soft enough to use straight away without having to use it loads of times before it softens by itself, and that it's soft enough to get a good line without being crumbly. Plus, once it's on, it seems to last quite a long time.
DO NOT buy rimmel eyeliner it's absolutely ****e, you have to draw several lines and put effort and strength into it for it to actually make some sort of line on your eye. I'm not even exaggerating. It'll be a waste of money. I'd say go for the bourjois khol one because it is actually quite good, comes on straight away and easier to use.
As for mascara i use that ysl faux lash one in a gold tube it's amazing - a couple of lashes and that's all you need. I think it's around £18... but if that's a bit pricey you could try that maybelline one with a green lid, it's like £3 or something and for that price it isn't too bad ! x
For eyeliner i would highly recommend Barry M. I think superdrug are the only stockists but they aren't expensive (like £4ish for a liquid eyeliner) and stay put all day. Their kohl eyeliner is precise but thick enough so you can smudge it if you want. I won't buy anything else. Their eyeshaddows are pretty cool too but I've never used the mascara.
i find the body shops mascara good, not that thick and really separates the lashes
I use W7even eyeliner - it's gorgeously smudgy. For mascara, it's Inimitable by Chanel - simply superb.
