Topshop False Lash Mascara - THE mascara?


Finding the perfect mascara can be a massive challenge and we've all been there. Before stumbling across this beauty, I was using the No7 Exception Definition Mascara which was good, but didn't provide a great deal of volume, so when I heard Lily Pebbles raving about the Topshop False Lash, I had to give it a go to see if it really did live up to its name - and at £10 (£9 with student discount) I couldn't turn it down!!


The Product?
I love the packaging of this mascara. The matt black finish makes it look sleek and doesn't slip out of your hands easily (trust me, it's happened before) - I also love how it's a little quirky. The applicator is great and doesn't apply too much all at once so it's great if you're looking to build it up. It adds a lot of natural looking volume without it looking clumpy or heavy on the eyes so is the perfect product in my opinion (take a look at my before and after photos below).
The only down side is that it has quite a pungent floral smell to it, however once dried the smell fades.

Note: Sorry for my squinty eyes in the first picture, I didn't quite realise until after they were taken.

After









Just LOOK at the difference between the first and second shot!! (Don't mind the bags under my eyes, they've been soo bad recently and I can't find the right under eye concealer to get rid of them completely - any recommendations?)

Should I buy it?
The simple answer is yes. It's a great product which provides a lot of natural definition and length to the eyes. I've been wearing it non-stop for the last week and a half and can't get enough of it. I'm so impressed and will definitely be rushing out and buying another when this one has run its course.

Have you tried the Topshop mascara? What's your all time favourite Mascara? Let me know down below!
