Incredimazing mascara for £2.50

This was one of those impulse purchases that I’ve been trying to cut back on…

I’ve liked a few different makeup products from Primark so decided to give this a try cos I liked the look of the wand. It’s quite similar to L'Óreals Telescopic Explosion which is around £11 in Boots and Givenchys Phenomen`eyes mascara which is around £20 in House of Fraser. I’ve wanted to try each of these mascaras for a while but didn’t wanna spend the pennies as they seem a bit gimmicky, but with the Primark one only costing £2.50 I just had to try it out
So far I really really like it! The formula was usable from the very first day (I normally open a mascara, find it too wet, then leave it for a couple of weeks before trying it again) and it coats the lashes brilliantly. One thing I found awkward was the actual line of bristles on the wand – when I tried using them the ball was in the way so I’ve just been using the ball to do my whole lash line… and the best thing is that it gets all the ickle bottom lashes that I didn’t even realise I had!
The colour is properly dark and I haven’t had any problems with clumping or flaking so it’s definitely the best £2.50 I’ve spent in a while :)

That's really good mascara for such a low price. I'm one of those people who go after expensive stuff thinking it's good quality. -_-

Thanks for all your comments! You’ve probably noticed that I’ve been buying more n more from the makeup range at Primark recently – it’s actually far better quality that I’d expected and nothing beats good cheap mascaras cos they need to be replaced so often! ♥
