5 New(ish) Mascaras

I think I have professed my love for mascaras on several occasions, they’re one of my favourite beauty products and I always love unwrapping and testing a new mascara for the first time. My friend told me to check out the best mascaras here https://www.rankandstyle.com/top-10-list/best-mascaras-2016, and some of them look great. I’ve had these mascaras for a little while now so I thought I’d share my thoughts on them all.

Benefit Roller Lash Mascara | £19.50
With the hype surrounding the Benefit Roller Lash mascara I couldn’t resist picking up a sample with Elle’s February edition. This mascara claims to be super-curling and lifting and I found that it does exactly that. This mascara coats every lash – separating, lengthening and curling them beautifully. It doesn’t add a lot of volume but I have to say this is my favourite of the 3 Benefit mascaras and I would seriously consider splashing out the £19.50 as it does the job perfectly.

Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara | £7.99
I’m quite the fan of Maybelline mascaras and after seeing this rose-pink metallic tube on the shelves of course I had to try it. This mascara claims to capture even the tiniest lashes and volumise the look of longer lashes for a layered lash look. Maybelline’s Lash Sensational mascara has a noticeably similar wand to Benefit’s Roller Lash. Both have a curved wand with longer bristles that fan out on one side and shorter bristles on the other. So how do they compare? Maybelline’s offering gives me a similar look of seperated, lengthened and curled lashes. Lash Sensational also gives me more volume but does have a tendency to some clumping of the lashes and also provides a little less curl, but for £7.99 I would happily stick to Maybelline’s Lash Sensational Mascara rather than splurging on Benefit’s offering as there really isn’t much in it at all.

SEVENTEEN Va Va Voom Mascara | £6.29
SEVENTEEN’s Va Va Voom mascara claims to provide extreme volume. When I first unwrapped this mascara I was quite surprised by the size of the brush – it’s HUGE when compared to all the other mascaras in my collection. Luckily I have quite large eyes so don’t have a problem with application but I can imagine that the size of the brush could be problematic for some and take getting used to. I have found that this mascara works to lengthen and really thicken the look of my lashes without clumping. Another impressive mascara from SEVENTEEN!

W7 Big Lash Mascara | £2.99
This mascara also claims to volumise to create a bigger, fuller look. For £2.99 I had my reservations and in terms of volumising in my opinion it doesn’t live up to the claim. However, this mascara does give a lovely natural day time look by separating, slightly lengthening and slightly volumising lashes, but if you’re after a volumising mascara I think SEVENTEEN’S Va Va Voom mascara does a much better job.

My Little Beauty Volume and Care Mascara | 19€
In my November My Little Box I received My Little Beauty’s Volume and Care Mascara. It took me a while to get around to trying this mascara but I really like the formula. It feels so gentle on the lashes, probably because it contains beeswax, jojoba and sesame oil. It separates, lengthens and curls and provides my lashes with a good amount of volume. I wouldn’t repurchase but I’ll be sad when this mascara eventually dries up.
