With so many volumising mascaras on the market it is hard to know which to choose especially since the prestige brands come with premium price tags. Many luxury brand volume mascaras have been known to clog and stick lashes together, which of course is not the desired effect and certainly not what you expect from the price. Here, having tried many, we take our pick of the top 5 dramatic look, volume mascaras currently on the market. To decide which mascara we liked best, we weighed up the following: what its brand advertises it to do, what it actually does, its price, packaging and staying-power.
1. Hypnose – Lancome
Hypnose is our favourite everyday volumising mascara. Read our review.
2. Opulash – M.A.C Cosmetics
For big bouffant lashes at an affordable price, look no further than M.A.C’s new Opulash. Read our review.
