I’ve probably tried a couple of hundred mascaras in my 20 years on the beauty beat, and have undoubtedly notched up more misses than hits in the lash department. Why? Because few mascaras seem to be able to do what I require of them – i.e. curling, adding volume and separating the lashes – without leaving me looking panda-like by the end of the day. So, whenever I find a mascara that ticks all my boxes, I take note so that I can buy some the next time I find myself in need of a level of eyelash perfection that isn’t being matched by the newest mascaras I’ve been sent to try.
My most recent discovery – and newest addition to my (short) list of perfect mascaras – is Max Factor Clump Defy Volumising Mascara (£10.99). It’s just wonderful. It does everything I require of the ideal mascara (see above!), is easy to use and lasts extremely well. I particularly love the way it curls my stumpy lashes, and the intensity of blackness it gives them. (It’s also available in brown.)
No clumps; just class!
