Ladies - recommend me a good mascara

33 replies
Found 22nd May 2009
I am looking for something that is really good for lengthening as I have short but thick eyelashes so don't want a volumising one.

I have vouchers for Superdrug and Boots so I am going to go this lunchtime

Let me know what works for you cos I always seem to get the wrong one based on adverts

I use Lancome Hypnose

I just tried the clinique mascara, expensive but found it really good, not very good at lashes types and things though but just an idea

I use a rimmel one at the moment, cant find it to tell you the right name though, but the tube is black with red writing. It goes on really well on my lashes and it has a plastic brush so might be good for your 'thick lashes.

I was however considering trying the new mascara thats out at the moment, again cant remember the name, but the one thats advertised as 'doing for lashes what high heels do for legs'. Although that one may be too volumising for you.

Otherwise, and I dont think superdrug/boots sell this, there was a comparison type thing on TV a while ago that voted an Ester Lauder one top.

Hope it helps....sorry for not knowing the names lol

There you go, a bloke that actually talks sense, wonders will never cease hey ladies ;-)

I use 'Prestige my biggst lashes' from Boots and Bad Gal by Benefit. I liked the Bourjois Clubbing one too but my daughter has 'borrowed' it.

Shows u I dont use mascara that much lol :oops:

this thread has got me thinking...i have no idea where my whole make up bag is!!!!!!...gonna find it now, and ill be able to tell you the name of the rimmel one im on about hopefully

Ahhh that was easier than i thought...mine is Rimmel Magnifeyes...however had it a couple of years now so not sure if it will still be on sale. Think it was pretty cheap, about £6 or something.

....And I think mascara depends a lot on the lashes and how people put it on...whats amazing for one might be awful for another

I do have eye lash curlers but I think the boys borrowed them to use for some sort of operation - never really used them anyway as I don't think they make a huge difference but might get some more


I got a couple to try out but can't remember what they are called now. Telescopic explosion or something or other, red and black tube (I am turning into lil tiger lol) so will give them a whirl for now :thumbsup:

if they dont work well make sure they arent worn down. then secondly if they dont work balst them with a hairdryer for a few secs.... make sure they wont singe ur eyelashes; hold eyelases in place for minimum 15 secs. still not good repeat. immediately aply mascara.:thumbsup:

Nah not a bad thing at all - least I would be young :-D

Thanks ILL too x

I dont use mascara now as i never really found one suitable. Instead i get my eyelashes tinted! It's great - lasts around 6 weeks, takes 20 minutes top and only costs me £7. Highly recommend it xxx

Doesnt hurt at all, might sting a little and make your eyes water the first couple of times they do it.
They just paint over your eyelashes with the colour you want and wait a few minutes for it to take.

I might give it try next week then - I always think I would close my eyes if they came near them so it would end up everywhere

Well you keep them open whilst they do the bottom lashes then close them for the top. I then have to keep my eyes closed for around 10 minutes i think. Quite relaxing really xx
