mascara's not something that i purchase all that frequently, simply because it doesn't behave differently if you're having a bad skin day like things such as foundation, concealer and powder may do, so generally i find something i like and i stick to it until it runs out, and i think my new favourite to stick to is definitely this e.l.f. mascara.
the mascara is branded as a volume plumping one, however i've found it to be great for creating volume, definition and length, so for £3.95 you really can't go wrong if you're looking for a good three-in-one mascara. another great thing about this product is that it stays put pretty well; it's not described as a waterproof mascara, but it definitely does take a lot of moisture to make it budge! i've cried with this on and it's gone absolutely nowhere, which really did take me by surprise (pleasantly so, though!) application is also a breeze because i've only ever had to use one coat to achieve incredible lashes, and i've been more than happy to wave goodbye to old mascaras that've required multiple coats before my lashes were looking up to standard.
for a volume plumping mascara, the brush itself isn't unpleasantly big and i think it'd be suitable for most people to use because it easily coats top, bottom and inner lashes well without making a horrible mess. i'd wholeheartedly recommend this product to anyone who's in search of a new mascara because for £4 it's incredible value for money and it's easily as good as (if not better than because it's cruelty free!) benefit's they're real mascara that i used to use before making the switch to cruelty free cosmetics.
