I have tried a lot of mascaras over the years and rarely use the same one twice in a row. However I keep coming back to Maybelline's The Falsies because I know it won't let me down.
I use the waterproof version of this because during the Summer I want something that will stay all day and not smudge or flake. It give my eyelashes length and volume but the formula is a nice medium consistency that you can put on two coats if you want more volume. I know some people don't like the spoon brush but I really like it and I find it helps keep the shape of my eyelashes after I've curled them. This is the only "drugstore" mascara that I have repurchased other than Boots 17 Wild Curls.
I'm quite picky about mascara, I don't like a very dry or very wet formula and I really don't like big straight wands because I like to get right into the corners and on my bottom lashes too and I feel like this wand is perfect for that. I use an oil-based make up remover to take this off, as I would with any other waterproof or long lasting products.
These are €11.99 in Boots and other pharmacies, but you can usually get them on special offer if you keep an eye out.
