Top 5 Mascaras

Top 5 Mascaras

Hi everyone,

Today I am continuing my ‘top 5’ series with a list of my favourite mascaras. I have to confess that most of them are higher end but I am very fussy when it comes to mascara as I want the full works; I want my mascara to lengthen, volumise and provide fuller, false looking lashes! So here are the ones which make the cut for me ……

This mascara has remained at the top spot as my all-time favourite mascara for a good few years now and although I’ve dabbled with many others I always end up coming back to this one. For me it does exactly what the name suggests and gives me full, dramatic lashes like no other and although it isn’t cheap, I definitely think it is worth the £22.50 price tag.

Since its release earlier this year Roller Lash has quickly become a firm favourite amongst bloggers and YouTubers and has had so much hype surrounding it. I love how much length and curl this mascara gives and it is only a very close second to Hypnose Drama. I think the Lancôme option just pips it to the post as I feel it gives more volume than this one but there’s really not a lot in it.

I truly thought that this was just going to be another gimmicky product and couldn’t see how it would make that much difference to using a normal mascara on my bottom lashes as well as my top ones. Having read many rave reviews about it though I decided to give it a try and I have never looked back since. I’m currently on my fourth or fifth tube of this and can see myself repurchasing it again and again.

I first tried this mascara when I received it in a Clinique Bonus Time gift set and I’ll be honest in saying that I wasn’t really expecting much from it. I’m not sure why this was as I love the bottom lash mascara so much but I just hadn’t really heard much about it. I have to say I was very pleasantly surprised though and whenever I wear this mascara I get so many compliments on my lashes. It manages to make them look full, long and voluminous all in one and give that real fluttery look.

The cheapest of the lot and my favourite high street mascara is Maybelline Falsies. This one is really good at getting the length but I feel it lacks in the volume department. For the price though I definitely think this mascara deserves its place in my top 5 as I have rebought it many times and have yet to find a high street mascara that I like as much as this one.

Which mascaras would make it into your top 5? Have you tried any of my favourites?

Thanks for reading,

  1. Great list and I have yet to try that Lancome mascara but have read great reviews on it. My favourite high end has to be Urband Decay Perversion and Tarte Lights, Camera, Lashes (the purple tube) and as for drugstore, Maybelline Lash Sensational has knocked off The Falsies as my favourite.
