    Only tried the Maybelline volume express and Avon supershock.
    Avon is my most favourite and I always come back to it after trying something new

    I’ve heard lots of positive reviews about the Revlon Grow Luscious Mascara — not sure if the product actually plumps and strengthens lashes though?

    I’ve experimented with so many mascaras over the years, like lots of other ladies also do I’m sure, including the Maybelline Colossal Cat Eyes which is not a bad product but I have to say the Lancôme Hypnose Star is by far the most effective and superior mascara I’ve ever bought. It’s not the cheapest mascara on the market but the texture, ease of application and long term effects make it so worth the money. I don’t see myself ever moving away from the Lancôme Hypnose Star; its an icon product that once in your life you have to have.
