Makeup Collection: Mascaras

Hello everyone!

I am back with another 'Makeup Collection' blog post and today I am going to be going through all of my mascaras and sharing my thoughts on them all.

Code VLM & Code FFL:
As soon as I saw this mascara hiding at the bottom of my collection I just knew that I had to incorporate it back into my everyday makeup routine. I loved this mascara so much when I first discovered it as it added lots of volume and length to my lashes, and didn't look clumpy despite having fibres in the formula. You apply the Code FFL product first to the lashes and it prepares them for application of the mascara. 

Rimmel Volume Colourist Mascara:
Again this is another mascara which I religiously used throughout last year but recently it has found it's way to the back of my makeup collection. From what I can remember I was a fan of this mascara because it separated the lashes, which is what I like when it comes to my mascara, and added a lot of length to them too.

ELF Volumising & Defining Mascara:
I do like this ELF mascara, especially because it costs only £3! The formula isn't too thick so it doesn't clump on the lashes. The only criticism I have about this mascara is that the wand is quite flimsy which means that if I'm not careful I sometimes end up getting mascara under my eyes or on my eye lid, and I definitely do not have time to be dealing with that when I'm in a hurry!

Maybelline The Falsies Push Up Drama Mascara:
I know that a lot of people really like this mascara but personally it just isn't for me. I have mentioned previously that I hate thick mascaras which clump your lashes together. I did give this a few goes to see if I could make it work because so many people talked about how good this is, but I just couldn't. 

Rimmel Scandaleyes Mascara:
I have been using this mascara for about 4 or 5 years now, so that just goes to show how much I like it! The brush is really thick so it coats the lashes really easily and quickly, and leaves them looking very voluminous.

GOSH Boombastic Swirl Mascara:
The brush in this mascara is really different as it's designed to really lift the lashes and allow for easy application too. This mascara is infused with argan oil which moisturises the lashes and also makes the mascara lightweight and comfortable to wear. 


Essence Instant Volume Boost Mascara:
This mascara is a fairly recent addition to my makeup collection and I am pleased to say that I'm enjoying it a lot. The mascara is lightweight so you really can't tell that you have anything on your lashes. It's lengthening and for under £3 I think it's well worth a try:) 

L'Oreal Mega Volume Miss Manga Mascara:
I have so many mascaras that I honestly couldn't remember what I thought about this mascara when I first sorted through my mascaras for this blog post. I did quickly test it out and it was on the thicker side in terms of formula for what I usually like, but it wasn't so clumpy that I couldn't see myself using it again. All in all, this is a nice mascara and I will be using it more regularly. 

LA Girl Super Mega Mascara:
I really enjoyed trying out LA Girl makeup throughout last year as it was a brand I had never tried until then. This mascara was one of the earliest items I tried out from LA Girl and it was an okay mascara, but nothing groundbreaking. The brush is nice as it coats the lashes evenly but I wouldn't say that the name reflects the performance!

Benefit Roller Lash Mascara:
Roller Lash has got to be my all time favourite mascara- it just ticks all of the boxes for me! My lashes look amazing whenever I'm wearing this mascara. I also like that there are two different sides to the applicator because one side is perfect for my top lashes and one side is perfect for my bottom lashes.

Benefit They're Real Mascara:
This is definitely a close second to the Roller Lash mascara as they both perform very similarly, the only difference is the wand. For some reason my eyes always feel irritated right after applying this mascara, and I think it's because the bristles on the brush are quite spikey. I have never had this problem with any other mascara so I'm not sure why I'm having it with this mascara, but I do still like the formula.

Clinique 
I'm not usually a fan of mascara miniatures as sometimes they can lack the quality of the full sized version, however that is not the case with this Clinique mascara. What I like about this mascara is that the brush is quite long so you can easily coat all of your lashes in one go without having to go into the inner lashes with the brush tip. I definitely need to get my hands on the full sized version of this mascara!

Benefit Bad Gal Mascara:
Another miniature mascara I own is the Benefit Bad Gal. I do like this mascara but not as much as Roller Lash and They're Real. It adds length and volume to my lashes- what more could you want from a mascara? I do want to try the new Benefit Bad Gal mascara because I have heard a lot of great things about it.

Maybelline Lash Sensational 
I remember when I tried this out for the very first time I didn't like it, but I tried it again a few weeks later and I absolutely loved it. This is definitely a dupe for the Benefit Roller Lash which is great because I love Roller Lash but I definitely couldn't afford to repurchase a £20.50 mascara every time I ran out! 

That was my very unnecessarily large mascara collection! What is your favourite mascara?
