Mascaras on Rotation - Armani, L'Oreal, Clinique, YSL and Charlotte Tilbury Reviews

Mascara and fluttery lashes just pull an eye makeup look together. You'd be fooled into thinking that all mascaras create the same effect, but these options from my collection prove differently.

Clinique Bottom Lash Mascara
I urge everyone who doesn’t already own this to go and buy it! I found normal mascaras would usually flake or smudge under my eye throughout the day. This Clinique offering has the tiniest wand so you can get every little bottom lash and into the corners. It also has never smudged or flaked, but it’s easy to remove at the end of the day, unlike waterproof formulas.

This is the latest offering from L’Oreal, which I believe is a great all-rounder. The Baby Doll mascara has a plastic spiked brush; this enables you to get right to the base of the lashes and wiggle the wand through them. It adds length and definition, but it’s not one if you love false lash like lashes. I do advise you don’t poke yourself in the eye with it, speaking from experience!

I received this mini mascara when I bought the 5 Minute Makeup Look Quick ‘N’ Easy Natural Glowing Look Set. I’m glad I got a sample size before I considered investing in the full size. It’s a more waxier formula than the L’Oreal and Armani options. I do find it occasionally transfers to my brow bone if I have been wearing for a long period. The positives of this mascara are the long, voluminous lashes it gives.

This is my current favourite mascara, I would 100% recommend it! The formula provides the best of both worlds, length and volume, without smudging or flaking. It has a plastic spiked wand, and elegant packaging, it’s well worth the money.

This is a new mascara to me, I was gifted it at an Armani event and gave it a whirl the next day. It’s very different to the Eccentrico as it’s a very natural finish on the lashes. The bristles are very long and wiry; they don’t pick up much product. The product would be ideal for ‘no makeup’ makeup looks, as it just colours the lashes and adds a touch of definition. I wouldn’t repurchase as I much prefer something with volume.

Although this has a similar name to the L’Oreal one, I think they are completely different in the finish they give. This is one for you if you like thick, almost clumpy lashes, a la Lily Melrose. It has a natural bristle wand which collects plenty of product, I find I must wipe a little off on the top of the tube before application. Like the Charlotte Tilbury option, this one sometimes smudges on my brow bone if I have been wearing it for a long time. I’ve also found its amazing for meshing your natural lashes with false ones as it’s so thick in consistency, it just helps they stick.
