I’m VERY picky when it comes to men. I’m also very picky when it comes to mascaras. I used to obsess over Maybelline The Falsies, which I later replaced with Chanel Le Volume. I still love those but I’ve found a much cheaper alternative.. Catrice Lash Extension Mascara.

The photos certainly don’t do this mascara any justice, I’m currently going through a ‘bad eyelashes phase’ (yes that’s a thing). There’s a lot of product on the brush so you have to be careful. I usually stick to 2 coats, applying a third layer can cause you to get those spidery lashes which is not what we want here.  I’ve got quite hooded eyes and I like it when a mascara gives me long, dramatic lashes because I feel like it opens up my eyes a bit more. But I’m aware that this baby’s not for everyone. They didn’t call it Lash Extension for nothin’! There’s little fibers in the formula which stick to your lashes and elongates them.

I’ve got the non waterproof version but they also do a waterproof version which I’ll definitely purchase this summer. The non-waterproof version stays on just fine, even with my oily eyelids. Mascara’s a very personal thing and it won’t work for everybody but it’s definitely become one of my favorites, and priced at only 4E, I think it’s definitely worth the shot. It feels so good to find a cheaper alternative to your favorite high end products!

What’s your favorite mascara?
