Look Beauty: Battle of the Mascaras.

Look Beauty Mascara (from left - all half price at time of post): Oomph Lashes £3.5; Lash Attack £3.50; Stretch Factor £3

On a recent trip down to Bournemouth, I kind of went crazy at the Look Beauty stall in Boots when I saw that some of their products were on offer. I picked up three of their mascaras to test them out and here is my verdict:

Oomph Lashes: This is definitely my least favourite of the mascaras. It didn't have an "oomph" effect on my lashes, and the mascara crumbled (you can see the black dots in the photo) which was really irritating. I would have carried on using it if it didn't leave the black dots all over my face, but that's just something no one has time for in the morning, especially if you're constantly running late like me!

Lash Attack: This mascara kind of covers both length and volume of eye lashes in one. It has an almost triangular brush, which gets fuller at the end of the wand which makes it really easy to apply as it catches your lashes. It's not the best mascara I have used, but not the worst either. I think if you're on a budget, this is a great item, however be careful when you apply multiple coats as it has a tendency to clump lashes together, so wait for one coat to dry before applying the next.

Stretch Factor: I love this mascara. As far as natural, lengthening mascaras go - this Look Beauty mascara is one of the winners. It's definitely an item for a natural look, I love how it gently extends and gives a bit more depth to your eye lashes, without obviously looking like you have mascara on. It's my staple along with dewy skin and coral lips this spring!

I am loving two of the mascaras and I'll definitely be repurchasing the Stretch Factor mascara as it was my favourite. As these were the first products I have tried from the Look Beauty range (I also tried their powders but I will blog about them separately) I was quite impressed and I'm looking forward to trying out some more of their stuff like the lipsticks!
