Mascara. It's a girls best friend. However, for me anyway, most mascaras don't really work on my stubborn, straight lashes. As you can see in the pictures above, my natural lashes really aren't that great. So what I look for in a mascara is something that will lengthen, add volume and above all hold a curl. I also need something that won't smudge as panda eyes are a big problem for me.
So recently I've been trying out Maybelline The Rocket (Waterproof) and I have to say, I'm really liking it. I like my lashes to look as big and as black as possible (doll eyed look anyone?) and this stuff really does work a treat. The brush is a little large for my liking, but it makes my lashes look separated while adding volume and length. I bought the waterproof version because I have major problems with smudging mascara so it is a little more difficult to remove, however compared to my other waterproof mascaras it comes off a lot easier (L'oreal telescopic - I love it but it hurts like a bitch to remove!).
It's also a great price - it's £5.99 at the moment from Boots!
