Top 5 mascaras for less than a fiver

When it comes to mascaras I don’t wanna have to choose one that offers volume over length or curl over colour. I want one product that does absolutely everything. It might seem a lot to ask but there are like a bezillion mascaras available so I’m constantly buying and trying new ones and although I dislike 90% of them (I’m almost as picky about mascara as I am about foundation) I have come across some real gems. With that in mind I figured I’d do a few mascara posts starting with 5 superfab finds that you can pick up for less than a fiver

Now I’m gonna let you in on a big secret provided you don’t go telling those germ phobic goody two shoes who follow all the right hygiene rules! I know you should dump a mascara 3 months after opening but I never do *Le gasp!* because I find some of the formulas are so wet that the mascara only starts to get good after 3 or 4 months when it’s dried out a bit. If I ever have an eye infection or something I’ll be sure to dump whichever mascara I was using right away but until then I’ll use them till I feel they need to be replaced :)

Aaanyway, my point – which seems to have taken an age to get to! – is that the following mascaras are great from the day they’re opened so I don’t have to wait around for them to dry out. Each and every one of these leave my lashes thick, dark, long and nicely separated. Also, they last all day without flaking or smudging – which is the very least I expect from a mascara!
Collection 2000 XXL Volume Sensation Mascara - £4.29
NYC Volumizing Show Time Mascara - £1.99
Collection 2000 Super Size Fat Lash Mascara - £2.99
Miss Sporty Fabulous Lash Mascara - £3.29

Feel free to recommend any mascaras that are awesome and cheap as chips but haven't been included here! ♥

I've not used a Collection 2000 mascara in years but definitely going to pick one up once by Benefit mascara dries out as there's no way I'm paying £18.50 for another one! x
