I have to give props to Seventeen because not only are their mascaras really affordable, but they do them really well. Long time readers might remember my review of the Seventeen Doll'd Up mascara and so I had high hopes for the Seventeen Long Lash Mascara.
The packaging is pretty standard but it's the brush that does all the talking. Because it's so thin, it means I can truly get every single lash with it and not poke the eyeball out of myself in the meantime. And it makes light work of the lower lashes too without making a mess. See, poking of the eyes and messing things up is a pretty standard thing for me first thing in the morning, so anything that helps avoid this is always gets 10 points for Griffindor.
For me, this is a lovely every day mascara, giving me a decent amount of volume, length, curl and separation. It doesn't quite hit my lashy requirements for night time wear because when I've packed on the eye makeup, I want it to look like I've got falsies on. But on mornings where I haven't given myself enough time to apply eye makeup (most mornings ahem), Long Lash hits the spot. If I'm being picky, I'd love a bit of extra length with this, just because of the name. But while I generally find that lengthening mascaras have a really thin formula and add length and nothing else, Long Lash gives me a bit of everything and I like the thicker formula.
It doesn't flake or smudge on me throughout the work day and has survived many bouts of sneezing over the past few weeks. And it looks like this:
Seventeen Long Lash mascara will set you back €9.49 and while it hasn't knocked my Bourjois favourite of the top of my list, it's definitely worth checking out if you're in the market for a new mascara!
