My Thoughts
First things first, as you can see from the pictures above there’s no denying that the mascara adds a nice amount of length and a hint of volume but it can be a little on the clumpy side. Now it’s worth saying when I first opened the mascara, the texture was different, much thinner. Two weeks on and we have a very, very thick and gloopy mascara. Don’t get me wrong, I’m still going to use it, but it feels a little more hard to work with for some reason and in all honesty I can see this mascara drying out fairly soon. Anyway, enough of the negative. This mascara certainly lives up to it’s waterproof claims. One day I had a full on hormonal strop, resulting in a me being well, pathetic and having tears streaming from my eyes. Once I’d made a mountain out of a mole hill and got over it, I turned to Marc and asked if I had panda eyes. I was shocked when he said no, so I went to my mirror to investigate. He was right, the mascara was still in tact, minus a few flakes, but for a £3.49, it had done a cracking job. Another thing I like about this mascara is the brush. It’s neither too big or two small which makes application a doddle.
  • Waterproof – stays put during a full on hormonal hissy fit
  • Cheap
  • Adds good length to lashes
  • Adds slight volume to lashes
  • Lovely brightly coloured packaging
  • Nice size brush – not to big, not to small


  • Packaging can become dirty rather quickly
  • Once opened the mascara goes a bit gloopy within 2 weeks of opening
  • Can be a little clumpy, probably due to the point above


For the price this is a good product if you’re looking for decent length with a hint of volume as well as waterproof protection. However, if you’re looking for a mascara that will last you a while, this may not be for you as it shows signs of drying out fairly quickly. Personally I love the effect it has on my lashes and shall continue to use it until it has fully dried up and is no longer usable.
