L’Oréal Paris Paradise Mascara

L’Oréal Paris Paradise Mascara delivers volume and length with its castor-oil enriched formula. The ultra-soft brush coats lashes from root-to-tip with its silky smooth formula. 

I absolutely adore this Lash Paradise mascara from L’Oreal. It is such a great mascara for both day and night time wear. The wand has long and thick bristles that allow for all my lashes to be individually separated and provide such fabulous boost of length. It does not smudge, flake or crumble even if I wear it all day long. My lashes look long and glamorous! It is also very easy to remove with my micellar water at the end of the day.” – bh member Bellefleur. Read more reviews here

Rimmel London Wonder Luxe Volume Mascara is a really nice looking black mascara that is easy to apply. The color stands out. It comes in an attractive tube. It doesn’t clump or smudge. It glides on the lashes well and provides good coverage.” – bh member christinac. Read more reviews here

Estée Lauder Sumptuous Bold Volume Lifting Mascara

Estée Lauder Sumptuous Bold Volume Lifting Mascara has a lightweight but powerful formula that lifts and plumps the lashes. The wand combines the best of both brush and comb, enabling the mascara to thicken and define the lashes. 

I cannot flaw this mascara. It is my all time favourite. The applicator is fantastic and it glides on seamlessly separating the lashes. It does not clump and makes the lashes extremely plump and voluminous. Great curl is provided by the wand and the packaging and scent of the product are lovely. Will be upset when it runs out!” – bh member Icampi10. Read more reviews here

Maybelline New York Lash Sensational Mascara

Maybelline New York Lash Sensational Mascara uses its curved brush to deliver a full, fanned-out look. The formula makes it easy to build up volume without clumping. 

This mascara is amazing, it is an absolute dupe for the too faced better than sex mascara, goes on easily, you can apply multiple layers without your eyelashes looking clumpy and the applicator is just the right size and shape. Have purchased and repurchased. Does not feel sticky, it is waterproof and it totally makes your eyes pop. Truly worth it for the price point.” – bh member Izzy0805. Read more reviews here

Lancôme Hypnôse Mascara

Lancôme Hypnôse Mascara is formulated with jojoba oil to help it glide onto lashes easily, carnauba wax to maintain curve and acacia gum to preserve the soft texture of your lashes. 

“I use this every day i wear mascara. Why is that? Because it is a quality product that instantly makes my eyes pop. I only wear light makeup of powder and a bit of eyeshadow maybe a lip gloss or balm during the day and this finishes off that look. Meaning i feel prepped for the day everytime. Its silky, black and luxurious and takes seconds to apply. I am lost without this in my make up bag.” – bh member Ishq. Read more reviews here...

essence lash princess false lash

At $6.75, essence lash princess false lash is a steal. The mascara is formulated to add length and definition to lashes, while the brush has been designed to give a false lash effect. 

This is my current favourite mascara. I was enjoying a L’Oreal one that is 5x the price but this one is just as good and easier to use. This mascara gives insane volume and length with one coat and can be layered for a dramatic false lash effect. The formula is not irritating and does not flake or smudge throughout the day. I love this mascara so much! It honestly is one of the best I’ve ever used and I have tried so many.” – bh membe Ksm. Read more reviews here…  

Nude by Nature Allure Defining Mascara

Nude by Nature Allure Defining Mascara provides intense definition and length. The brush has been designed to be extra flexible, allowing it to give an intensified, lenghtened and seperated lash look. Formulated with provitamin B5, candelilla wax and arabic gum to allow multiple coats without flaking, while helping condition your lashes over time. 

“I hadn’t previously used any NudeByNature mascaras, so I was excited to try this mascara. It is amazing! It makes my lashes look amazing, and adds so much length and volume! The consistency is fantastic! It is very easy application , and is very buildable. And is a great, affordable price! I will never go back to high-end mascaras after trying this mascara. Love the beautiful packaging, gives it a luxury-feel.” – bh member jemma zdravkovski. Read more reviews here

Benefit BADgal BANG!

Benefit BADgal BANG! is a cult-favourite for a reason – it’s good. The formula gives 36 hour volume without weighing down the lashes. The brush has been designed to easily reach root-to-tip and corner-to-corner, as well as upper and lower lashes. Formulated with provitamin B5 to enhance thickness and strength over time. 

I wear mascara at least 6 days of the week so I have tried many mascara throughout the year and I got to say this mascara from Benefit is one of my favourite. I have fine and little eye lashes so mascara with big bristles does not work for me because the product will get on my eye lids. However, the bristle in this product is just the perfect shape and size for my lashes. The pigmentation of this mascara is more on the natural look which is what I prefer for my everyday makeup look.” – bh member HelenT. Read more reviews here

M·A·C Extended Play Lash

M·A·C Extended Play Lash is not only lightweight, it also helps curl and lift lashes. The slimline brush has been designed to give each lash effortless definition and volume. The mascara has been formulated to be smudge-free, yet easy to wash off, lasting 16 hours. 

I absolutely love this mascara because, as my eyelashes are quite straight and not that curled, this mascara lengthens them immensely and curls them as well. I have tried so many other lengthening and curling mascaras but this mascara is by far the best and most effective. The small wand also allows me to reach all crevices of my eyelash and i enjoy that less bulky feel of it. This is one mascara I will definitely be rebuying.” – bh member Demi976.

  1. Have tried a few of these, just finished BadGal Bang, it was okay. The Rimmel Wonder'full is a bit of a let down, I prefer the original formula. Much better. Looove Lash Paradise, Lash Sensational and Lash Princess
