My Top 5 Mascara's ♥

Hey beaut's!

You may have seen over the last couple of weeks that I've started a new little blog series named My Top 5, so far I've shared my top 5 concealers, my top 5 brow products and my top 5 cream blushers, but today I thought I'd share with you all my top 5 beloved mascaras that I just couldn't be without and that I'll always repurchase.
Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara
 Firstly is the Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara, this is probably the best high street mascara I've found which really is a bold statement, it's just so amazing! I actually waited a good few months after this launched to try it because me and Maybelline mascara's never usually get a long for some odd reason but the Lash Sensational is amazing, it's much like Benefits Roller Lash and gives me so much length, separation and curve to my lashes but also volumises and defines at the same time without any clumping or smudging at all, I love it! 

Benefit They're Real Mascara
I love the Benefit They're Real Mascara and I go back to it time and time again, it makes my lashes look so full and long as well as separating every lash, even those tiny inner corner lashes, and the formula is jet black which I love. I can always rely on They're Real for not smudging and its really build-able meaning you can really layer the mascara up with quite few coats and I never get any clumps or flaking at all. I would definitely label the Benefit They're Real Mascara as one of my holy grail makeup products that I think everyone should try.

MAC Extended Play Gigablack Lash Mascara
I actually got the MAC Extended Play Gigablack Lash Mascara as it's so popular for being used on your lower lashes because of its very slim wand and I love it, the tiny bristles get to the smallest of lashes and it doesn't run or smudge at all, it's also great at getting to inner corner lashes and fanning out your lashes at the edge of your eye. I'd highly recommend the Extended Play Gigablack Lash Mascara if you have small lashes that you want to make the most of or if your looking for an amazing lower lash mascara, this baby will do the trick!

Bourjois Volume 1 Seconde Mascara
I fell in love with the Bourjois Volume 1 Seconde Mascara last Summer and have repurchased it again since then because I love it that much. The application process is very quick and easy with this mascara, that's where the 1 seconde part of the title and the unique brush with spherical bristles comes in, you literally achieve instant volume and length with just one to two strokes, theres no faffing around with building up coats of the mascara for volume or length it's just instantly there which I love, and theres not a single clump in sight. This is definite a high street hit that I'll happily keep repurchasing!

Urban Decay Perversion Mascara
The Perversion Mascara claims to leave you with bigger, blacker, badder looking lashes and I have to say they are pretty much on point with that description, if you want thick, long and inky black lashes you need this mascara in your life. I do find this mascara performs better with the Subversion Primer that I actually got with mine as part of an offer but once that ran out I was still left impressed with long thick lashes that didn't smudge of clump, so I'd highly recommend giving them a go.

What's your favourite mascara beaut's? I'd love to know!



  1. I love mascara - out of your picks I have only tried the Maybelline one but I agree whole heartedly with your review! Love it! 😍 The Bourjois mascara looks interesting, might gave that a go!

  2. My absolute favourite, one and only, nr. 1 forever, etc. is the maybelline the rocket in the waterproof black version...that is the best - at least for lasting, and beautiful, and pigmented, is just simply perfect for my be honest it was first time beyond my expectations for THIS price - I thought it can't be this good...but yeah, it is...:)

  3. Oh wow, I haven't actually tried any of the mascaras you mentioned but I do want to try the Maybelline one! My favourite one currently is the L'Oreal telescopic!

  14. I have such a love/hate relationship with They're Real. I love the impact it gives my lashes but it's a nightmare to get off. I think the Bourjois Volume 1 Seconde Mascara is my favourite of the 5.
