It’s fair to say that we couldn’t live without mascara, those little magic wands not only boost our lashes but also make us feel slightly more human first thing in the morning. But finding the perfect mascara for your peepers isn’t always that easy. Every time a new one hits the shelves we rush out to get it, filled with excitement at the prospect of a million perfectly curled, separated lashes.

However, like us, you’ve probably snapped up a mascara that was never destined to be a regular in your make-up bag. Hours after that first hopeful application half of it has already flaked off and you’re looking worse for wear and it’s not even lunch. And we’re pretty sure any sign of a curl has faded away, so your lashes are poker straight once more.

So that’s your make-up ruined AND you had to shell out so your purse has taken a hit too. But, there is an answer to this beauty nightmare. Yes, we know exactly how you can find a mascara that will tick ALL the beauty boxes.
