The point I was getting at was that I fancied trying a new mascara but I couldn't be spending a lot of money on it. So when I was in Primark and saw this volumising mascara for just a quid I thought I would give it a go. For the price the packaging is quite nice in that it isn't tacky or garish looking, but you can definitely tell it's a budget one when you hold it and feel the quality. But none of this really matters of course! The brush is quite small which I really like as I only have short lashes and not very many of them! This manages to grab all my lashes without poking my eyes out in the process- a frequent occurrence with some of the ridiculously huge brushes! It's not instantly volumising but it's easily built up with no clumping. The brush style also means I can really work it into the base of my lashes to get a stronger look. The end result isn't overly dramatic but they do look longer and more defined and curled. I also like that my lashes don't feel crispy in any way, so the effect is much more natural than some volumising mascaras that can feel and look a little heavy. Oh, and another thing, I haven't found it to be irritating, which I was concerned about considering it's very low price!
All in all it's a good everyday mascara that gives me a more natural volumised look, if that makes sense! Especially considering my bare lashes are so underwhelming!
Sorry for the blurry pics, I didn't realise until I was editing them.
Do you have any budget mascara reccomendations? I'm always on the look out for new ones!
