My Favourite Mascara

Below is a big ol' scary shot of my eye, wearing a little bit of shadow on the lid etc. but I want you to focus mainly on my lashes...
Not bad, huh? My lashes look pretty well fanned out and long, with just the right amount of volume in there. Now, to put this into perspective, below is my eye with no make-up...
Can you see how pin-straight and short my lashes are?! Ahhh!

My mascara of choice is Boots No7 Exceptional Definition nutrient enriched mascara. I first tried this out when it came out about 2 years ago, and have repurchased every 3 months since. It is literally perfect for what I want: defined, long lashes with volume and seperation. The wand is very similar to Benefit's They're Real, but better in my consists of a rubberised material with a fine-toothed comb one side for length and seperation, and thicker teeth the other side for volume. The end of the wand also has a ball with a comb on it, aimed at coating the smallest of lashes on the inner and outer corners, but I find this clumps up a little bit with excess product, so if you want to use it, you have to be gentle or dab off a bit of product.

So, the way I use this is by combing through my lashes with the lengthening side to seperate lengthen. Next up I use the volumising side, wiggling at the roots and combing through to produce thicker, darker lashes that really stand out!

At £12.50 this is a bit more costly than your average high street/drugstore mascara, but with a £5 off voucher that Boots dish out several times a year, this baby is a real winning purchase! I recommend it to everyone :). And for those of you that shy away from black, they do a brown too!
