FAB BAG PICKS: Eyes Wide ‘Open’
As all make-up gurus would put it, to really “open” out those peepers, pick up that tube of mascara…
I am born lucky in the way that my ‘real’ eyelashes have been quite often mistaken for falsies – they are long and naturally curled. Of course I am also cursed with a head full of twisty, bouncy curls that tend to go well, to put it politely, haywire – but that’s another story! So when it comes to choosing a mascara for myself, any does it – be it volumising or curling or just a plain ol’ tube… Yeah, lucky, I know! Here are two of my favourite mascaras, one for a steal day, and one for a splurge! Choose as you like them!
Splurge: Bourjois Twist Up the Volume Mascara
If you want lashes that bat like ‘fans’, try this one. It promises to “turn up the volume of your lashes 6 times”. While I have not measured the promise per se, it really does up the ante a lot. ts intense black formula quickly builds full coverage and volume on every single lash. Lashes look visibly lengthened and perfectly volumised*! CLICK to view product.
A highly effective, volumizing mascara to get gorgeous eyes, without blowing a hole in your pocket! The brush is nice, with bristles that promise to cover even the tiny lashes at the corners of your eyes – and they do. The intense formulation works on your lashes, strengthening them and making them appear thicker and longer. The mega lash styling brush perfectly coats lashes and gives extreme root-lifting volume in just a few strokes. CLICK to view product.
