I Need Help! Please Help Me Choose My Next Mascara!

Hi ladies - I have a challenge for you today and I need your advice.  For the past few months  I've been using Inimitable Intense Mascara by Chanel.  I've had a bit of a love/hate relationship with it, but it's finally beginning to dry up, so it's time to choose my next mascara.

I had a rummage in my beauty drawer which contains unopened products and backups - I knew I had a couple of unopened mascaras in there - I was gobsmacked to find seven, yes SEVEN unused backup mascaras!  I had no idea I had so many. 

Four of them are full-sized mascaras: Avon Supershock, Eyeko Big Eyes and No. 7 Exceptional Definition, along with a freebe from a magazine.  I'm going to give to free one to Give and Makeup, but I've heard good things about all the other ones, so I'm excited to try them out.  I know I bought the Eyeko and No. 7 mascaras myself, but I think the Avon Supershock was a gift.

I also have three decent sized mini mascaras that were gifts with purchases: Lancome Hypnose Precious Cells, No. 7 Lash 360 and Clinique High Impact Mascara.  I've used the Lash 360 before, but I've not tried the others.  I think I'm going to take one of these on holiday with me in March - I just have to decide which.

So ladies, I want your advice.  Which full-size mascara shall I try next, and which mini shall I take on holiday with me?  I'm really interested to hear your thoughts if you've tried, loved or loathed any of these. 

For your information, my lashes are long but have no curl to them, they don't hold a curl at all, and are currently in a natural, un-tinted and un-permed state, so I have lots of lighter lashes I need to cover up. 

Please help me if you can!  Thanks for reading, and for your wisdom!  xx

Eyeko's Big Eyes Mascara!! That's my one of my favourite mascaras. The brush looks useless, but does an amazing job. It's totally black, and covered every little lash for me and helped to hold the curl. Only downside is it's a total pain to get off x

try Clinique; I use it everyday :) I don't like Hypnose Precious Cells

Emily said...

Try the Avon one and take the clinique one away :) xx

I really struggle with mascara, I have very fine lashes which are total wimps when confronted with mascara and fall out ++++ I have used and enjoyed Clinique Naturally Glossy, Revlon Grow Luscious Fabulash and am currently using Lancome Hypnose Precious Cells which seems to work really well. I don't like crispy lashes and non of these give me that. My most fave is MF 1000 Calorie. Good luck, I think you should do a mascara wars post a bit like thebeautybite did recently. Jan x

I use YSL faux cils, love it! Also use mac plush lash and false lashes mascara for everyday wear, not sure if they will curl your lashes as mine are already curled!

Try the Eyeko one next and take the clinique one on holiday. x

Great post hun, I have used the Lancome one and the Clinique one I actually have a few of them.

I would take the Clinique on hols and then use the No7 I have heard good things about that one! x

Hannah said...

I've used the Clinique one and liked it, the Lancome one is really good too :)

I'd like to see what the eyeko one can do?
Currently using the new Collection 2000 one, surprisingly good. But I don't think you need to buy another one. ;)

Thanks ladies for all your help. So it appears that the Eyeko full size and the Clinique mini for my hols have won! I'm really interested in seeing how the Eyeko one works, as I read a great review of it ages ago.

Many thanks again - I'll let you know how I get on with it! xx
