Hello beautiful people~! Today we’re taking a look at the E.L.F Volumising Mascara and whether or not it’s decent for everyday use.
Now, I mentioned in a previous post that my holy grail mascara was Too Faced’s Better Than Sex Mascara – but a girl only has so much in her bank account and I can’t afford to be purchasing that every three months! 😀
So, I found this one which only cost £4.50 and decided to give it a whirl – it’s the cheapest mascara I’ve bought in a good few years now.
Firstly, this mascara is for those who want a more natural look. It’s definitely not one for those wanting dramatic lashes – it just doesn’t do that. However, it definitely enhances them in a natural way and adds volume and some length.
The brush isn’t massive but it’s not skinny either – it’s a decent size and glides nicely over your lashes – it’s an easy one to work with and applying to the bottom lashes is tidier. Using the Better than Sex mascara, I sometimes find that I get it under my eyes.
As for how it lasts on the lashes, I found that it lasts all day (bare in mind I also use Urban Decay’s De-Slick Setting Spray) and it doesn’t smudge under the eyes. However, I don’t put a lot on my bottom lashes so that may be why.
Overall, I would say this mascara is a YAY because it gives a pleasant, natural look to the lashes which is perfect for everyday. I wouldn’t use this mascara for a night out or special event though. But for work and being lazy around the house then I would definitely reach for it! ❤
Thank you for viewing and I hope you’re having a wonderful and safe day/night~!
