The hunt for the miracle mascara!

I am on a mission this year to find miracle makeup.

Whether it be a moisturiser that makes me look 10*cough 20* years younger or a mascara that gives me calf like lashes!

So I am starting with mascaras.

I have stubby straight lashes. I’ve considered false lashes, even sat down and watched 1 or 100 YouTube videos on how to fit them and felt confident I could totally pull them off. I totally can’t 😔

So my needs are as follows :

–  make my stubby lashes look longer and fuller.

– hold a curl, especially after using that old torture device the eyelash curler

– last ALL day without flaking or smudging and ending up all over my cheeks

And that’s it. Surely not too much to ask!

These are what I have tried so far:

The only one I have repurchased is the Maybelline lash sensational waterproof which is the best I have tried with a plastic wand on it.
The worst was the L’Oréal superstar false lash effect. It did nothing for me.

The ones I’m currently using are as follows:

I enjoy both the Too Faced Better Than Sex & the Essence Princess Lash for short term use. Perfect for heading out for a few hours but wouldn’t last all day.
The MAC Extended play & Clinique High Impact Curl are both tube mascaras. The Mac one is fab on the lower lashes cause the brush is so long & thin. The Clinique one wasn’t great, nothing special.

My newest addition which I’ve yet to try is :

I have high hopes 😄
What are your favourites and for that matter your hate it’s ? I’d love to know .

  1. Haha this is so relevant to me – I’m currently looking for my next mascara to buy! Have heard wonderful things about the lash sensational. My lashes are like yours – straight and stubborn when it comes to holding a curl. Have just bought the Seventeen Falsifeye one, pray for me! xx

    1. Tarte isn’t available here in Ireland but it’s one I’ve heard lots of good things about.
      The Too Faced is fine on me short term but if I want something to last all day this doesn’t. I’ve very watery eyes and find this smudges on me something fierce. I must try the waterproof version.


      1. Tarte isn’t available here either in Denmark, but luckily my parents still live in the US so I can buy a few things every now & then 😊
        I haven’t tried the waterproof version, but I think it would be good if you have watery eyes!

  2. I love Too Faced – Better Than Sex. Have you tried They’re Real! by Benefit? That’s also one that I really enjoy using. Tarte is also good! Hope you’ve been able to find one you love!
