Find out which ones get the thumbs up from our beauty team with 3 best mascaras you probably didn’t know.
Luxvisage Mascara XXL Super Volume – False Lashes Effect
What does it do? Created with an ultra-dark pigment – to make eyelashes look defined and thick – and with a curved brush to sculpt them upwards,
We say: “A bargain mascara with high-end results. The formula wasn’t too runny, and the pigment was good. The thin brush was good for getting between my lashes and fanning them out. I’d have liked it to be a tad more volumising, though.”
Luxvisage Mascara XXL Length-Curling-Volume
What does it do? It has a long-wear, smudge-proof formula, and the wand has been created extra fine so that you can capture and coat all of your lashes.
We say: “This was really dark – I mean, really jet black. It almost fakes an eyeliner effect if you apply it close to the lash line. It has a thick formula, which I like, and stayed put. Very good.”
Luxvisage Mascara XXL Volume-Shape-Separation
What does it do? Castor oil and sea buckthorn make this mascara nourishing for your lashes, while its polymers make it long-lasting and volumising.
We say: “The brush is thin and made it simple to coat lashes. A good coverage, no clumps and my lashes looked dark. Staying power was good, too – no smudging at all.”
Bielita Luxury Mascara – All in One Miss Perfection
What does it do? The wavy-cut bristles separate lashes while the micro spiral tip captures the little ones. The formula contains little fibres which cling to the lashes, making them looked stretched.
We say: “Smashbox smashing it out of the park – this is just a dream. Luxurious packaging, very lengthening, and it has this pretty feather-like effect that made me look like I was wearing falsies.”
Mascara “Royal volume” Bielita Luxury
What does it do? This promises to do it all: lift, define and volumise. It has a lash-building complex and three rows of wedge-shaped discs on the brush to grab and separate.
We say: “They advise twisting and turning the brush between coats for best results but I don’t think it needs it. It’s a really good mascara and made my lashes look lifted and defined, just using the brush as it is.”
