Being a massive beauty addict, you would think I had a long list of mascaras that I love – but it’s the one thing I’ve just never managed to get right!
I was pretty smitten with the Maybelline Lash Sensational, but for me it only lasted around a month before it started to dry out. I decided to picked up the L’Oreal Lash Sculpt and it was just ok, on it’s own it adds a lot of volume but does leave my lashes looking clumpy. After seeing a lot of people use two mascaras to get the perfect finish I decided to pick up the L’Oreal Telescopic – and now I think I’m on to a winner.
I am lucky to have naturally long lashes anyway, but finding a mascara to compliment that has always been a challenge. Before I apply any mascara I always curl my lashes first, I use the Vintage Cosmetics curlers. Not only are they the best blog photo prop ever, they actually do a really good job at curling my lashes and holding the curl throughout the day too. I apply a coat of the L’Oreal False Lash Sculpt which adds a lot of volume, and then without letting that dry I go straight in with the Telescopic, which works brilliantly at adding length and separation to the lashes. The end results is lashes that are long and separated but full of volume all at the same time, something that one mascara has never been able to do for me!
Using more than one mascara may be the way to go for amazing lashes! I’m tempted to try some different combos in the future to test this further, there used to be a lot of hype around Max Factor mascaras which I haven’t tried for years…
