This is a mascara that I have picked up in Germany last winter. I had a coupon for 50% off and as my other mascara was on its way out, I thought I’d try this one. I think it was the golden packaging that sucked me in. The brush of Astor’s Big & Beautiful Boom is massive, but it really separates your lashes and gives you a natural look after just one application. It does more in terms of length than it does for volume, but it is easily buildable, if you want a more dramatic eye and it is really light on your lashes.
I love love love Avon’s Super Shock mascara. Once again, quite a big brush, but I seem to be getting on well with them and this mascara does an amazing job at absolutely everything. With one application, you get thick and long lashes and there’s absolutely no need for a second or third application. The brush grips the bottom of your lashes beautifully, almost making it look like you are wearing a black eye-liner, and gives your lashes a nice curl.
I know, there seems to be a theme going on here, but this is another favourite of mine which comes with a big brush. In fact, the brush of GOSH’s Boomtastic mascara is huge compared to other mascaras that I have used before. Other than most of my other mascaras, it has plastic bristles, which is something that took some getting used to, but I really like this mascara and at only £6.49 it is a real bargain. It doesn’t clump your lashes together and gives you extreme length and volume, so much so that my lashes touch my eye brows, if I use more than one application. Thumbs up from me!
Surprise, surprise – another big brush, but I think big is what you need, if you are promising the effect of false lashes. I wouldn’t say that’s the effect that I get when using this mascara, but I am really happy with the length and volume that it gives me. It doesn’t flake or smudge and is the perfect choice, if you are out all day and want something that stays put. Definitely one of the best mascaras in my make-up bag right now.
