My Mascara Collection

The makeup product I have the biggest love-hate relationship with is mascara. I find it very difficult to find one that works for me, and when I do manage to, after a couple of tubes I don’t like it anymore.

Top – Bottom: Rimmel Kate Moss Idol eyes, Seventeen Doll’d Up, W7 Lashtastic, No 7 Intense Volume, Maybelline The Rocket Volum Express, Bourjois Volume 1 Seconde, Diego Dalla Palma Ciglione, No 7 Midnight Lash, Benefit They’re Real, Maybelline One By One, Benefit Roller Lash, Clarins Be Long.

So without further ado, here is my mascara collection.

As you can see, I mainly have drugstore mascaras. Mainy because I find that high end mascaras don’t tend to do much more for the significant price you pay. The mascaras which are repurchases for me are Seventeen Doll’d Up and No 7 Extreme Volume (I actually used the latter in Waterproof on my holiday). I still like these mascaras, and would probably repurchase, although not but for a while as my collection is getting out of hand.

My most recent mascaras in my collection are the W7 Lashtastic, as this was only £2 in B&M, and you can’t really go wrong for £2, and Maybelline The Rocket Volum Express. I’m really impressed with the Maybelline mascara and I can’t believe I’ve not tried it out before.

My favourite mascara in my collection up until very recently is the Bourjois Volume 1 Seconde. It makes my lashes so volumised but also seem to lengthen them. This is definitely one to try if you’re yet to do so. However, I do change up what mascara I wear most days, so if you were to ask what I was wearing, chances are, I wouldn’t be wearing this.

I go through phases of liking the Benefit Mascaras, just like all high end mascaras. I feel like they should do more for the money. I don’t like the Clarins Be Long I have but I don’t want to bin it as I’m a serious makeup hoarder. I’m hoping that I will fall in love with it, and if by Christmas (when I do my big sort out each year) I’m still not loving it, it’ll be heading for the bin.

I’m very opinionated on mascara, but in a way that’s difficult to explain. I just think it’s very difficult to find a mascara that does everything I want to do.

What is your favourite mascara? Do you have one you think I should try? Let me know.

PS. Since scheduling this, I also picked up Maybelline Lash Sensational to try, and it’ll be making an appearance in Friday’s post.

    The Benefit They’re Real is my holy grail mascara! And Maybelline is my go-to brand for drugstore mascaras!


    • I can’t believe that before a few months ago I’d never used a Maybelline mascara *slaps wrists* x

    You have quite the mascara collection going on! My favourite at the moment is Benefit’s Roller Lash but I recently rediscovered Soap and Glory’s Thick & Fast which I also love. xx

    • I’ve never used a Soap & Glory mascara; I should really give one a go. I just don’t get on with mascara because my eyelashes are stupid hence trying so many. I should probably give them to people who would like them more but serial hoarder right here x
