Mascara comparisons #3

Third installment of mascara comparisons because, according to a survey (don't you hate that phrase?), mascara is the essential make-up item for most women. I can't say I disagree!



A few notes:

  • Both They're Real and Buxom Lash were sample sizes. I assume the sample formula is the same as the regular size formula.
  • I know loads of people love They're Real. According to a survey (!),  they sell one tube every 3 minutes or something like that. Well it just doesn't work for me, it's too wet, clumps my lashes together and is a b*tch to remove. 
  • The Bourjois Volume Glamour Max definition is one of my favourite mascaras ever. this was my third tube! Although it doesn't say that anywhere on the packaging, it is a tubing mascara and you need warm water to remove it.

  1. I've been repurchasing maybelline the falsies for a little while now, but I'm getting the urge to try something new next time. I'm not a fan of They're Real either, I really loved it at first but then I realised it really stung my eyes, not fun! I might try a L'Oreal mascara next because I don't think I've ever tried one before!

    1. They're actually really good. The Falsies just doesn't seem to work for me x

  2. I can't get on with They're Real either Gaelle, the brush just does not work for me! I really want to try a L'Oreal mascara, the False Lash Flutter looks good! xx

  4. I want to try the L'Oreal butterfly one. :) But I agree-I think Bourjois makes stellar mascaras. Happy Christmas Gaelle!

  5. I tried the Benefit They're Real one - it didn't do much and it was such a pain to remove, I agree!

  6. I love the Bourjois Volume Glamour Max Mascara but I find the wand a little too big overall. I love Maybelline Full n Soft, and the Lancome Hynose Mascaras. Lancome make some of the best mascaras in my opinion, but they're expensive!

    1. It is quite a chunky brush yes although I like the spikes at the end.
