Just after some recommendations as to a good quality mascara. I don't wear it every day mainly just for special occasions or occasional work meetings.
Prefer a quality brand rather than chemist or supermarket one.
I'm after black and one that lengthens lashes I don't like them looking too thick

I've been using Estee Lauder Double Wear mascara in black for about six years, and I find it to be excellent.
It is super long wearing, isn't gluggy or clumpy, doesn't smudge, separates the eyelashes nicely and is easy to remove with soap or facial cleanser and water.

Estee Lauder Double Wear.
I have really long lashes and this is the ONLY one that does not leave me looking like I have been punched in the eyes after a couple of hours.
BEST MASCARA EVER!!!!

I was guilted into buying an Avon one by one of my students... it sat in the bathroom for six months until a 'mascara situation' occurred.
It was fantastic! Lengthened considerably without making them look like a blow up doll and stayed in place all day and all night!
I actually had to ask a makeup wearing friend how to remove it in the end!

I'll be following this thread too. I'm looking to try something new.
My favourite so far is YSL faux cils. Looking for a cheaper alternative.

Mirenesse Secret Weapon. I received a sample in a gift bag about 10 years ago, and haven't used another brand since. You can buy online at http://www.mirenesse.com/. There are a few different types, lengthening, volumising etc... but the thing I like the most is no panda eyes. Cleans off with warm water (you kind of pull it off, it doesn't run).

My worst mascaras ever Were two different types of Napoleon mascara - they were both clumpy, even when applied with a fancy mascara brush. They also dried out and started flaking all over my skin.
I second Avon mascara, I have tried a few types and they always last well and rarely clump.

I really like Chanel Inimitable - really great lengthening with just enough volume. No clumps.

Another vote for Avon too. They have several different sorts and are quite good price wise especially when on special. I guess it also depends on how much you want to spend = some of the name brands are fairly expensive I think.
PS Avon also has a returns policy where you can try it and if you don't like it return it to the Rep for a refund.

I really like diorshow
people always think I have fake lashes when I have it on
Posted 01 February 2013 - 10:25 PM
My favourite is Diorshow, I have a few but of them all prefer Extase the most.

Diorshow - I so very rarely use it, but I have had it going on 7 years now...the same one and it is fantastic - makes the lashes so long long and luscious!

Another vote for Mirenesse. Wouldn't use anything else now.

I am all for buying quality makeup and most of my makeup collection is from higher end brands, the exception being mascara.
I find the Maybelline Great Lash Waterproof Mascara to be the best of the best! No clumps ever.

No, but I can recommend a great review site

IMO, Covergirl Lashblast is better than Chanel and Dior. By far the best mascara I've used.
Posted 03 February 2013 - 05:34 PM
I have tried almost all the luxe brands including most mentioned here, and the best I have found is Armani Eyes to Kill. Better than EL Double Wear which is also good but flakes a bit on me. I buy it on strawberrynet.
