My Favourite Mascara

Apologies for posting a bit late in the day today. It's been a crazy day (typical the one day I don't schedule my post!). Having been offered a telephone interview for a job, I called up to organise it but they then did it there and then! I was totally unprepared but I passed it and am onto the next stage now!

Anyway… enough of my rambling apologies and on with the post. 
I've had the pictures for this post ready for a while now, but in yesterdays bbloggers chat a couple of people tweeted asking for mascara recommendations, so I thought this would be perfect timing for this post!

My all time favourite mascara that I swear by is Max Factors Clump Defy Mascara. 

I've used this mascara for about 2 years now and use it in both black and black/brown. I use black/brown on a daily basis as it's a bit softer than black which can look quite harsh against my pale skin. But I love wearing black for an evening out when I've got more makeup on as it really finishes a look off nicely. 

The other major plus of this mascara for me is the wand. I absolutely hate big brush wands because I never get a good application and always end up with mascara down my cheeks and on my eyelids. I much prefer a small plastic wand providing the plastic isn't too hard! This is definitely the best wand I've had on a mascara and as you can see from the picture above, it curves which is great for a quick, easy and smudge free application.

I also love the packaging. It's not slimline but equally the tube isn't too fat. It's fairly similar to a lot of other mascaras out there in terms of size. I love the colour of the packaging, definitely one of my favourite colours and I think the silver writing/decoration works really well. 

This mascara costs £10.99 which is a bit on the steep side compared to some other drugstore mascaras, however it's quite often on offer and I would say it's well worth the money! I'd much rather spend a bit extra on something I love than on a cheaper version that I'm not happy with. 

I am wearing this mascara in all my photos on my blog and more pictures can be found on my Instagram.

What is your favourite mascara? Have you ever tried this one? What do you think of it?



  1. ooh i am totally intrigued by this mascara and must give it a go!i don't like massive big wands either so this one looks great!i haven't tried mascara with a wand like this before!:)xx

    1. I love it so much, would definitely recommend it! Best wand I've found on a drugstore mascara. X

  2. I love this mascara too, and like you don't get on with big wands, they are ok with my upper lashes, but my lower one's I tend to get it everywhere, which is never a good look :)

    This wand is very similar to the Cover Girl Clump Crusher.
