My Top 3: Mascaras

My number one cant-live-without, take to a desert island beauty essential is mascara. If I could have one item of make up for the rest of my life I would choose mascara. I can go out the house with no make up at all bar a slick of mascara and I'm fine, but as soon as I don't have my mascara on, I don't feel like me! I like to think of myself as a bit of a mascara queen and have tried pretty much every product on the market to find my number 1! Therefore, I thought I would share with you my all-time favourite mascaras which I re-purchase again and again and can do no wrong in my eyes! 

1) Top spot has to go to my ultimate mascara. It is the Pur Minerals Big Look. This is a mascara that I have only discovered quite recently and I am absolutely hooked! It really does do what it says on the can- it makes your eyelashes so long and voluminous. Pur Minerals is an American brand and the mascara is definitely one of their hero products and much loved by its fans. They also do a waterproof version which I have yet to try but I am sure will be a holiday essential if I ever get one this year... The mascara really lifts the lashes and adds length to them to give a really wide -eyed look. I also love using mascara on the bottom eyelashes to open up the eye area and this mascara gets right to the corners to catch every lash. 

2) Second place goes to one that I have been using for years and go back to again and again when a new brand doesn't quite cut it. The L'Oreal Million Lashes mascara is one of the best I have tried. I like the Volume Extra Black version which is fab at really building up the lashes and giving you that extra bit of definition. I don't normally like the plastic brushes but I find this one works really well and again, it picks up every lash- even in the corners of your eyes. 

3) Finally there is the beautiful looking Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara. Aside from the amazing name and the gorgeous packaging this mascara really hits the spot as a great mascara. The consistency of this is a little thicker than your average mascara, therefore it is great for building volume. I often use my Big Look first then Better Than Sex on top if I want more volume- especially for a night time look. The mascara also gives the illusion of more lashes than you have- another huge plus point. Plus, this product looks fab in your make up bag! However, better than sex? That is still up for debate! 

What is your favourite mascara? Have you tried any of these?
