No7 Lash Impact mascara review, before & after photos

You know when I do my mascara reviews, I always comment on packaging and how I enjoy when those tubes stand out in my makeup bag.  Well No7 Lash Impact mascara is Christmas in mascara form with it's red glitter and I'll be honest, I thought it might be one of those gimmick products that come out for the craic.  I was wrong.  Oh so wrong.  But back to the packaging.  Isn't it fabulous?  So of course the twinkly lights had to make an appearance for the photos.


Along with commenting about the packaging, I always comment on the brush and fans of the bristley brush can be safe in the knowledge that there's no plastic to be seen.  I'm not too bothered by wands or brushes when it comes to mascaras and will try any and all if it gives me grand big lashes.


The formula is slightly on the dry side which means it takes slightly longer to get enough onto my lashes until I'm happy with the result.  And I'm ok with that.  Thinner formulas like this means you can layer it on like a good thing without the risk of clumping and those spider lashes that we try to avoid.  What I get with the No7 Lash Impact mascara is this:


Long, wispy, fluttery lashes with lots of lift, a decent amount of volume and for that reason, I've been using it non stop for the past few weeks going to work.  It deposits the perfect amount of product onto my lower lashes too, giving me a wide eyed effect when I'm exhausted and feel anything but bushy tailed.



As usual, the photos here show one coat and when I apply it at 5.20am, it still looks the exact same by the time I get home at 4.30pm.  And no judgement, but it works great if you're heading out right after work and have no time to take your mascara off but need a little somethin' somethin', so go on and add a second coat then for even lashier lashes.

This will set you back €17.50 or even better, comes free when you buy 2 selected No7 products!  Well if it's free then how could you not want to try it?

Love love love this little Christmassy, Dorothy's ruby slippers packaged beaut which 100% holds it's own against the big guns in the mascara world.

Have you tried it and are you intrigued?
