Today's post is all about mascaras, and I just love a good mascara because my lashes are naturally fair, short, straight and fine, so any help is always greatly appreciated! Today's brands include Charlotte Tilbury, New CID Cosmetics, Fenty Beauty, Too Faced and Diego Dalla Palma.
First up is the Charlotte Tilbury Legendary Lashes Volume 2 Mascara (£25.00), and I must admit, years ago I did try the original of this mascara and it didn't do a lot for my lashes, but I wanted to give the newer formula a chance. The packaging is rose gold and super luxe, and the wand contains a bristle brush applicator, which I tend to prefer as a rule. If you want thicker lashes with a lot more volume, then this is the mascara for you! I find that this makes such a difference with my lashes and I love how intense the black pigmentation is. The formula is both smudge-proof and humidity-resistant, so this is also going to be perfect for taking on holiday with you! You can find it online at Charlotte Tilbury here.
Next up is the New CID Cosmetics i-flutter Double Brush Lengthening Mascara* (£20.00). This mascara comes in a silver tube and the brush itself is a natural bristle brush, full of lots of tiny bristles to catch on to each and every lash, coating each one with a rich pigmented formula. I find that this mascara separates my lashes really well, and also lengthens and volumises them to give a fuller lash look. I had no issues with the formula flaking and there was no movement or smudging throughout the day. At £20.00, this is a good mid-priced mascara from a brand that isn't as well known. You can find it online at New CID Cosmetics here.
I have tried quite a lot of Fenty Beauty products over the past few years and was thrilled to see they had released a mascara. The Fenty Beauty Full Frontal Volume, Lift & Curl Mascara (£21.00), is the first mascara from the brand and features a flat-to-fat bristle brush. You use the fat side to load and lift the lashes and the flat side to define the lashes and curl them, ensuring you are getting the best possible result from a mascara. The tube is black and baby pink chrome and I must admit I am super impressed with this formula, as it really helps to lift my straight lashes, whilst also adding some much-needed volume. You can find it online at Boots here.
I have gone through countless tubes of the Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara* (£22.00) and I still believe it is one of the best on the market. However, how super cute is this limited edition packaging? Full of fruity characters, yet with the same amazing formula. This iconic mascara is amazing for thickening the lashes, whilst also curling and lengthening them, and is one of a few mascaras that make such a huge difference to my lashes. The natural bristle brush is an hourglass shape so that it is able to coat and lift each and every lash, particularly the smaller ones towards both corners of the eye. I also find this one of the most longest lasting mascaras too, and it doesn't smudge or budge throughout the day. You can find it online at Debenhams here.
My final mascara is a little different to the others, and it is the Diego Dalla Palma High Performance Mascara* (£16.00). This sleek matte black tube holds a much smaller latex-style brush than we have seen from the other four mascaras. This mascara allows you to grab and coat every single lash from the shortest, thinnest and straightest to those hidden. It has a long-lasting formula with wear-time up to 16 hours, so you will have no problem with this smudging or flaking away and due to the formula, this mascara can be applied throughout the day if you are wanting a more bolder look to take you from daytime to nighttime. You can find it online at Marks & Spencer here.
