Eyelashes and Mascara's...

As I explained in the Clinique High Lengths Review post (see here) I always thought that mascara's couldn't ACTUALLY make your eyelashes longer, have more volume or thicker BUT it seems they can! Who would have thought?! So since finding this amazing fact out I have started trying out loads of different kinds of mascara's. Each new mascara that comes to market seems to claim a brand new attribute it can add to your eyelashes, but really how many different ways can our eyelashes be enhanced? So I decided to try all the mascara's I have and take a photo at the same angle to try and see what a difference each mascara made to my eyelashes.

As a reference these are my natural eyelashes with no mascara on...

The results are here to see plain and clear - no enhancements, no photo shop, no false eyelashes. I hope this helps you make an informed decision when buying mascara's and enable you to see the different looks a variety of mascara's can achieve...

Maybelline the Colossal Volum' Express Mascara


Maxfactor False Lash Effect Mascara

Collection 2000 Skyscraper Mascara

Benefit Bad Gal Lash

Bobbi Brown Extreme Party Mascara

Clinique High Lengths Mascara

Maybelline the Falsies Volum' Express Mascara

There is defiantly a difference between my natural eyelashes and with mascara on. There are also slight difference between these mascara's but not as much as you may think there would be. This selection of mascara's range from high street prices to more expensive prices, therefore showing the results within a range of budgets.

What do you think?

Can you see any big differences?

I'd love to hear what you think :)



  1. Your natural lashes are amazing!! There so long and perfect. Mine are all short and wispy :( Loving this post as have been looking for a new mascara, I might try the benefit one :) Love Chels xxx

    1. Aw bless you :)My eyelashes get really short if I wear mascara everyday, so I try to avoid mascara for a couple of days each month!

  2. Bobbie Brown and Maybelline the Falsies Volum' Express Mascara look amazing. xxx

    1. The Maybelline falsies is the best for volume but it's a nightmare to take off! :)

  3. I like the collection 2000 and Maxfactor :) you have amazing eyelashes without anything too! xx

    1. Yea the Maxfactor is good, it's the one I'm using at the moment :)

  4. aah, my eyelashes are kinda like yours, pretty long already so i always find it hard to find a nice mascara that doesn't make them go all clumpy! that maxfactor one looks so good!
