Finally, A Mascara That Ticks All The Boxes

Mascara is my least fave product to review.

It’s just so difficult to find a good one, isn’t it? When they don’t look too natural (which I hate), they have big wands that deposit mascara all over the eyelids, or smudge like crazy. Yet, they have such a short shelf life, I feel like I have to use them for at least three months before switching to a new one. *sighs*

So, now you know why I don’t review many mascaras. But, I have to tell you about this one because I absolutely love it. I’m talking about MustaeV Maxi Volume Mascara.

Now, the volume isn’t as maxi as the name implies, and nowhere near as maxi as my beloved Pupa Vamp! Mascara, which gives me that false lash look with just one coat. But, it’s more voluminous than 90% of volumizing mascaras I’ve tried, which is pretty impressive, if you ask me.

MustaeV is one of those mascaras that gives life to even short and sparse lashes and makes them say “hello, I’m here!”. It makes your lashes noticeable, but not too noticeable, which is great because it means I can wear it both during the day, even when I have a work meeting, and at night, when I go out partying.

Of course, by then, it looks a little faded. But, there are no smudges in sight. MustaeV Maxi Volume Mascara has never turned me into a panda (at least, not yet). The black colour is very intense, which helps make my eyes look even more intense.

It’s easy to dispense it on all lashes, from the shortest to the longest, with the thin wand. I love this type of wand because it separates lashes really well and deposits the mascara where it’s supposed to go: lashes, not eyelids. It feels so good not to have my eye makeup ruined by mascara for once!

Price & Availability: £18.00 at MustaeV

I LOVE L’Oreal Paris Double Extend Beauty Tube Technology Lash Extension Effect Mascara! It never flakes (unless it’s atleast 4 months olds),never gives me “racoon eyes”, and isn’t smeary but washes off like a dream with just water due to its “lash tube” technology. I feel like it’s probably an awesome dupe for less $$$ for both Lancome’s DÉFINICILS PRECIOUS CELLS mascara and Lancome’s CILS BOOSTER XL Mascara Primer. One time I wore my mascara 2 days straight (yes,that’s bad) and it STILL looked fine. Trust me. It’s awesome. This is coming from somebody with oily lids and has a tendency to touch the eye area (yes,I know that is bad, too). 🙂

Hannah, that sounds amazing! I’ve kept away from L’Oreal for years, cos it’s pricey in Italy (almost as expensive as MAC there!), but now that I’m in the UK, and the brand is reasonably priced here, I think I will give it another go. This mascara will be the first thing on my list. 🙂

do you have sensative lashies by chance? I’m in dire need of a good mascara that does some heavy lifitng! But doesn’t make my lashes fall out.

Celeste, no, I’m afraid my lashes aren’t sensitive.
