This mascara by benecos is not only free of chemicals - making it ideal for those with sensitive eyes - it's also packed with organic jojoba and sunflower seed oils to nourish and condition eyelashes. But it's not just good for you, it makes your lashes look fabulous too. A superb mascara at an affordable price.
This mascara has a genius micro brush that not only catches even the tiniest of lashes and the corner ones, but gets right down to their roots adding volume, colour and coating them evenly. The Hard Setting Polymer formula is anti-smudge and anti-flake, making it ideal to wear in the summer or during humid, wet weather conditions. Apply one coat for a natural look, two or three for dramatic, sky-scraping and well-defined lashes.
Fake full, thick eyelashes with M&S Autograph False Lash Effect All-in-One Mascara. The fat brush coats the lashes evenly adding volume and gives a full, thick effect and lots of definition. Ideal for those with thin, sparse eyelashes.
If sky-scraping and well defined lashes is what you are after, this mascara by M&S Autograph is an excellent option that won't break the bank. The formula glides on easily and without mess and a couple of coats will give you long, well-separated lashes. A brilliant mascara that easily rivals some of the more expensive ones.
With vitamins E and B, Code VLM mascara nourishes whilst giving you show-stopping lashes. The medium-sized wand has lots of soft bristles for thickness, volume and length. It also has a long staying power, so you don't have to reapply it during the day. Non clumping and non flaking.
Another excellent mascara from Bourjois. The round wand has lots of wraparound spheres and straight bristles that have a super volumising and separating effect, plus it adds length to the lashes. Unlike many waterproof mascaras, this is easy to take off with an eye makeup remover. It also comes in a non waterproof formula.
A good budget mascara with a small brush with bristles distributed in a round, disc-like shape that get to each lash and add instant length. For extra volume, apply two coats.
If you are after extra volume at an affordable price, Essence I Love Extreme Volume Mascara does what it says on the tin. The extra large brush coats the lashes at the root, for a full, thick effect.
Artistry Signature Eyes Mascara boots thickness and volume but still has a natural finish. The MagnaBoost brush has been designed to only pick up the right amount of product to prevent clumping and staining. Its creamy formula is highly pigmented for luscious black lashes.
