  1. MAC zoom fast black lash – separates and lengthens. Makes you look like you have long lashes naturally. Almost as though you have one or two individual extensions in there.

    Maybelline colossal volume express – a great daytime mascara. Doesn’t smudge or budge. Length and volume without clumps.

    Maybelline mega plush volume- a great evening mascara. Lashings of this mascara creates a full plump lash yet won’t flake off. I also have sensitive eyes and I find maybelline products does not irritate them.

  2. My newest favourite is “They’re Real!” by Benefit. My longest serving failsafe is Lancome’s Flextencils and my mother swears by Estee Lauder’s Double Wear!

    • Thanks for your entry Emma, and good luck! I love the Double Wear mascara and have been meaning to try ‘They’re Real’ so I definitely will now.

  3. Great giveaway!
    1) Loreal Double Extend in Carbon Black- My absolute favourite mascara! The white mascara really gets every lash and lifts them ready for the SUPER black mascara on top. Never clumps and stays all day, people always ask me if I’m wearing falsies.

    2) Loreal (again) Volume Million Lashes- I love Loreal mascaras they really take well on my naturally light lashes. You can’t go wrong with thick lashes and although this needs separating with a comb, it works really well for dramatic evening looks.

    3) Covergirl Lash Blast- I love this mascara for those “lazy days” where you just need a little something to open up your eye. Not too dramatic, it still manages to curl enough and it’s such a simple process, no need for combing through or picking out clumps. Perfect daytime saviour!

  4. What a fantastic giveaway! Top three are Benefit’s They’re Real for a night out, Bare Mineral’s Lash Domination, I use this one every day for work. Finally, I LOVE Clinique’s High Impact, I think it’s possibly my favourite mascara of all time, I need to re-purchase this one, or ask Santa! ;)

  5. 1) Rimmel London Scandaleyes Lycra Flex Mascara
    This is amazing, it always makes my eyelashes look super thick, I wear it most days!
    2) Maybelline the volum’ express colossal smokey mascara
    This one is so black and volume sing, love it !
    3) Rimmel London Scandaleyes Retro Glam Mascara
    I love the brush on rimmels newest mascara, it’s similar to the first Rimmel mascara I put down and is really good!!

    • Hi Erica – Maybelline mascaras are proving popular, but I haven’t tried any from Rimmel. Sounds like I should! Good luck

  6. 1. Maybelline – eg, volume express – well I think all the maybelline mascaras are just brilliant but this one just doesn’t clump and irritate my eyes when being applied on and the brush is nice and small yet well shaped.
    2. Max factor – I would have to say this mascara because when I put it on the volume is great and it’s colour is long lasting and dark. Perfect to wear out.
    3. Benefit mascara – My final one would have to be this one because its full of dark colour and yet when applied shows really nicely on the eyes and only need one of them and don’t have to have coats and coats of it.

  7. Stacey Bruckshaw says:

    I have always loved Benefit Bad Girl – my eyelashes are long and this gives great coverage and you don’t have to put loads and loads on – you don’t end up with the spider eyes look.
    Next one is the Maybelline colossal volume (waterproof) – this is the one I am using at the moment, cheaper than the Benefit Bad Girl and I am a bit of a crier, so I never end up with panda eyes.
    My final one is (when I have lots of pennies to spend) YSL Volume Effect – just for a bit of luxury!! No clumps and my eyelashes look beautiful and natural, whilst giving them definition.

  8. My favorite mascara is dior diorshow waterproof mascara in black. It absolutely doesn’t come off until you take it off, but I do dislike that the brush is so fat because I usually smear it.
    My next is maybelline great lash, a cheaper one but a more economical option.
    My next is clinique mascara, the kind my mom first bought me when I was a kid :)

  9. Morning everyone and thanks for entering my competition. The winner is Helen Greenwood! Congratulations Helen, the prize is on its way to you this week
