Favourite... Mascara

Over the years I've tried many different mascaras. In the end, I settled on getting my lashes tinted - that way I didn't have to deal with smudging etc. However, mascara doesn't just add colour to eye lashes: it can thicken, separate, appear to lengthen lashes...

Last year I was in Melbourne, stopping in at a department store to pick up a work colleagues concealor. It was a Benefit concealor - a brand I had never used. As I was about to pay for the concealor, the savvy assistant said: "Have you heard about our amazing new mascara?"... I was sold!

And, you know what?! It is the BEST mascara I was ever used!! So thank you nameless male cosmetic assistant at the Benefit counter in David Jones. He actually started my love affair with the Benefit brand too.

1. They're real! mascara - beyond mascara.
They're real! lengthens, curls, volumizes, lifts & separates. Our jet black, long-wearing formula won’t smudge or dry out. A specially designed brush reveals lashes you never knew you had!
What else you need to know:
94% saw dramatic length & volume*
90% saw base-to-tip curl*
94% saw visible lift*
100% saw long-wearing results*
*Results observed in a consumer panel survey 

I adore this product. I even keep a mini of it with me in my hand bag for those mascara-emergencies (?! personally, I've never had one. But I am prepared for one...). It wears incredibly well ALL day.

Up until recently, They're Real was the only mascara I used. But I was still avoiding putting mascara on my lower lashes - I have such light lower lashes that I just make a mess trying to get mascara onto them.

Then I found: Clinique's Bottom Lashes Mascara. Now bottom lashes get in on the action with a brush engineered for tiny tasks and a formula that resists smears. Pair it with any mascara on top, and watch what happens.

The tube is tiny. The mascara wand and brush teeny! So far, so good. No smudging!
