Out With The Old, In With The New..

We all need a change don't we? Especially when it comes to mascaras. Every 3 months I believe!

Signs that you need a new mascara:
  • You've had it for more than 3 months (a build up of bacteria will increase your risk of eye infections)
  • It's gone very gloopy and clumpy when applied on your lashes.
  • The mascara starts to feel flakey and dried up.
  • It may even smell a little funny.
  • You have used it all up, bit obvious that one.

Out with the old..

L'Oreal Extra Volume Collagen
I love the thick brush on this, it's perfect for adding volume. It's becoming really clumpy now though and is such a hassle to apply. This has to go into the bin I'm afraid! This isn't my go-to mascara but it's decent. I won't be re-buying it though ^_^

Maybelline Sexy Curves
I actually got this back in August, but I didn't use it much as I was obsessed with my L'Oreal Telescopic (which I still love). I tried it during January and I quite liked it, but it's gone funky. It smells a little and it goes dry and flakey bout an hour after applying it. Darn!

.. And in with the new

Max Factor False Lash Effect
Wow, I've really been missing out! I picked this up in Superdrug for £10.99 and it is probably the best mascara I've ever bought myself, except my L'Oreal Telescopic.. my HG mascara! But so far this is really lovely, it makes my lashes fuller and longer. Can't say I notice a curl to my lashes though -_-

I'm off to London this weekend, I'll be back on Tuesday! I'd love it if you could tell me about any MAC products you swear by, I've never been to MAC before but am definitely going to get a few things. Expect a few hauls when I get back, but I won't be posting until Tuesday or Wednesday. Make sure you follow me on twitter to keep updated with what's going on!


  1. I love max factor false lash effect too! I hope you have a lovely time in London, I love going to MAC. I think their skin primer is great and their lipsticks are just beautiful.

  2. i always buy a new mascara every 2 months, but i always buy the same 1, lol i may try others but at the end of the day 'bourjois paris, volume glamour, ultra black is my favourite ever ! xxxx

  3. Ohhh, I always need advice on mascaras! I probably need to get a new one eventually, I use Benefit's Bad Gal at the moment, and it isn't bad but doesn't really do what it promises, haha. I have such fine lashes though so that's probably why! x
