No7 Velvet Lash Mascara review, before & after photos!

In an attempt to expand my mascara horizons and use something new (those who follow me on Snapchat and pretty much everywhere will know what mascara I rave about all the time to anyone who'll listen), I decided to try out the new No7 Velvet Lash mascara and report back with my findings.

This mascara promises volume, length and definition and has one of the bristle brushes for those who like a bit of old school when it comes to their wands.  I'm an equal opportunist when it comes to wands (ahem) and will not discriminate based on length, girth or any size differences at all at all.  Listen, you didn't think I was going to let you away with any kind of rude wand innuendo now did you?!

I can waffle on to you about what it's supposed to do, but it's the before and after photos that will do the talking.

If you're after wispy, fluttery lashes that hold a decent curl to help you look more awake, then this might be the one for you.  The formula is perfect for keeping clumps at bay and the brush combs through lashes easily, giving your eyeballs a bit of life.

I'm trying out a few new mascaras at the moment and this is the one I keep going back to.  The formula allows me to apply a second coat to the top lashes without any difficulty and this is always important for me because I'm in the whole more is more camp when it comes to lashes and mascara as you probably already know.  Why stop at one coat when you can stop at two?!  And despite adding two coats as you can see in the photos below, the formula still keeps the curl for the day and doesn't weigh my lashes down.  It stays put all day, doesn't clump or flake on me and when I forget I'm wearing mascara and rub my eyes, it doesn't sting the eyes off of me.  It happens more often that you'd expect, so this is a definite plus in my book.

Ah look at my little scaldy eyeballs below with nary a lash to be seen.  A quick coat of my Velvet Lash and I'm good to go, and for my photos below, I added the second coat to the outer half of the top lashes.  That's my favourite thing to do with mascara in an attempt to elongate my beady eyes.

The No7 Velvet Lash mascara is available now for €18.50 and if you're looking for something to try out and spend your No7 vouchers on, this is definitely worth checking out!
