High Street v High End: Mascara



Both these mascaras claim to lengthen lashes, but there is a rather big difference in price. Read on to find out which one wins!

High Street: Collection Lengthening Mascara - RRP £3.99




This mascara is amazing. I could end the review there but I'll go into a little more detail for you! The main thing I love about this mascara is the brush. It's a thin, rubber brush which really means you can shimmy (I'm sure that's not the official term but do you know what I mean?) it on at the bottom of your lashes without getting serious panda eye. This definitely does lengthen lashes and also curls at the same time. For £3.99 this product has definitely surpassed my expectations!

High End: Smashbox Full Exposure Mascara - RRP £19.00




I've got the mini size of this, which came in the Smashbox Try It Kit (which I would definitely recommend as a great way of trying some of their products by the way). There are some quite hefty claims made on the Smashbox website about this mascara - it's supposed to lengthen, curl and volumise. It definitely lengthens and curls and is a really natural looking mascara - I hate clumpy mascaras that stick your lashes together! My favourite thing about this mascara is how kind it is to lashes - it doesn't make them brittle at all which means you don't pull ten eyelashes out trying to remove it! The only thing I'm not convinced about is the brush - I do end up getting this on my lids sometimes!

Winner - Collection Lengthening Mascara. As you can see from the photos, these mascaras have such a similar effect on lashes that I have to choose the Collection one due to the price! I'll definitely be re-purchasing. 

Have you tried either of these products? What did you think?

  2. They both look pretty good but I think the Collection one is slightly better! I hate the mascara I'm using at the moment and I always get it all over my lids because the brush is awful. I definitely need to get a new one.
