Mascara: Drug store vs High End

When it comes to beauty products, I tend to think you get what you pay for and go for high end. However there is one area where I make an exception to that rule. Mascaras.

Like most girls I try all the new ‘miracle’ mascaras when they come out. But the one product I keep coming back to, and the only mascara I’ve re purchased is Max Factor’s False Lash Effect (£10.99)

It’s the blackest black I have ever found in a mascara and creates volume. I am realistic and don’t expect miracles from mascaras because they can only work with what you’ve already got, but this is the best mascara I’ve used and makes my lashes look the best they can look.

Products that come close, well obviously Benefit’s They’re Real (£19.50)

But with an almost £10 difference in price, there isn’t much difference in the effect:

Max Factor is on the top, Benefit is on the bottom (yes my eyes are different colours)

The Max Factor is a lot blacker and more high impact for a lot less money.

In the middle range, I do like Mac’s Opulash (£14)

This is a great everyday mascara and gives a more separated look to your lashes.

Yet to arrive in the UK market is Urban Decay’s new Perversion mascara. Their Perversion eye liners are the blackest money can buy and I am a big Perversion junkie so I am excited about this product.

It is going to be released at $22 so that will be about £17 (ish) in the UK. That’s quite pricey for a middle range brand like Urban Decay but I have heard amazing things so will be first in line to get one and see if it can beat my trusty False Lash Effect.
