Battle of the Mascaras – Drug Store & High-end | Pt 1

Battle of High end and Drugstore mascaras Part 1

Hello, my loves! Finding the perfect mascara is a must and can be a challenge!  I’m sharing with you a random selection of my pretty large current collection of mascaras to let you know what I think of them all and if they’re worth investing in! I will be talking about how they apply to my eyes, if what they claim to say really works and if I would repurchase them again!

 Kiko Extra Sculpt Volume Mascara

Kiko Extra Sculpt Mascara - PixieBowUK- Battle of the mascaras ! Drug Store & High end! Part 1

Wand Type – Hourglass Bristle

Claims to give you fuller looking lashes with a panoramic effect.

I 100% agree with Kiko’s statement, the shape of the brush is perfect it grips all the lashes and feels like it pulls them out to create a curved look. It makes my lashes look a lot fuller and thicker. This is a dramatic mascara and is perfect for people who love big bold stand out eyes!! It gives a false lash effect which I love you guys know me I’m all for big eyes! I did find it a little messy to apply, but the formula feels very light and delicate on my lashes. When applying you can feel it grab each eyelash and comb right through! Always a great sign.

I did find on the second coat it started to look a little clumpier but could remove the excuses with tweezers if you’re like me and not into clumpier mascara. There’s nothing wrong with a clumpy eye look if that’s your thing! After a few coats it looked heavier and super dramatic on the eye this would go lush with a bold Smokey eye for a night out.

I love the packaging of Kiko’s Extra Sculpt Volume Mascara, I love the overall look of the mascara but it’s a little chunky and could be too big for your clutch bag!

 Benefit Roller Lash Mascara

Benefit Roller Lash Mascara - PixieBowUK- Battle of the mascaras ! Drug Store & High end! Part 1

Wand Type – Curved Silicone  

Benefits Roller Lash Mascara Claims to separate, lift and curl your lashes holding them in place for 12 hours

Roller lash is a super popular mascara and one that is raved about over social media. It has become a classic and one people often go to as a trusted product!

Personally, I don’t find this mascara curls my lashes like it should do, it definitely lifts and separates them, but it tends to push them up too much and my top lashes end up looking too straight (pointing up towards the sky.)

When using on my top lashes I like to curl and then apply a primer first to help give it a shape to follow.

I love love this Benefits Roller Lash Mascara for my bottom lashes, I have really long bottom lashes so finding a mascara that isn’t going to make them look like spider legs is a challenge. The formula and brush shape is perfect it curls them under and I don’t get messy. My lashes look effortlessly curled and defined.

The packaging is lush the colours and design is perfect… we all know it’s a classic look!

Younique Moodstruck Epic Mascara

Younique Moodstruck Epic Mascara- PixieBowUK- Battle of the mascaras ! Drug Store & High end! Part 1

 

Wand Type – Classic Bristle

Claims to give you volume, length and clump-free lashes.

I have to agree Younique Moodstruck Epic mascara did all 3 in just one coat! I was so so impressed, after seeing so much negative stick towards MLM companies and their products, this isn’t a gimmick at all. My eyelashes felt bare like I had no product on them at all,. I do need to curl my lashes when I’m using this Mascara as it makes my eyelashes to long…. If that’s even a thing. They touch my eyebrows and I can’t wear glasses as there too long. When I curl them, they look the perfect length!

When applying it I can really feel it combing right through my lashes making sure it coats every one of them this is so important for me when looking for a mascara.

I love wearing this when I want a natural look like for the school run and day to day makeup. I can layer it up for a more intense dramatic look for night time.

It lasts well on my lashes, I slept in it for the beauty of this post and it was as good as when I first put it on the previous day, no panda eyes no crumbly mess win win!

The packaging is lovely and sleek perfect for your clutch bag!

This mascara is perfect for someone who wants a no-fuss lash look that makes your lashes look lush with minimal effort!
