My Favourite Go To Eye Duo

Monday, 7 September 2015
I've never been one for buying high end mascaras, for me the drug stores offerings have always been just as good and if not better. I'd seen a lot of hype around the lash sensational in the blogosphere and when in Tesco last week noticed that they had an offer on for 2 for £10 when each of these are £7.99 each, bargain! I decided to get the Eye Studio Lasting Drama Gel Eyeliner. I bought myself the Benefit Push Up Liner last year and no matter how hard I try I just don't like it. 
The main thing I love about the Lash Sensational is the wand, although it is rubber (not my favourite previously) it's curved which means you can really get into the lashes to get the definition that you're looking for. As well as this one end of the wand has shorter bristles meaning that it's ideal for the bottom lashes and prevents you from getting mascara underneath your eyes. As for the formula I've found that it does have good lasting power and it doesn't flake on you throughout the day which is a pet hate of mine.
It really does give you amazing volume! I've been unfortunately blessed with natural stubby lashes and I've even found people saying to me in the past "why don't you try wearing mascara", le sigh. It's definitely the most impressed I've been with mascara in a long time and I will be repurchasing! 
As previously mentioned I bought the Benefit Push Up Liner last year and I really don't like it. Thinking about it the main problem I had with it was the fact it came in a pen, I couldn't get enough product out of it and when I did there was too much and it smudged everywhere, nightmare. I decided to pick the Lasting Drama Gel Eyeliner as it included a fine brush which I'm used to using. For me the formula is amazing, creamy making it easy to apply and it rarely smudges and if it does it wiped off easily and doesn't leave traces of black smudge all over my lid. The brush included is double ended, one end being tapered and flat edged making it super easy to apply (even for liner novices like my self). The other end is a foam almost dome shaped end, apparently this can be used to smudge out the liner to create a smokey eye look but I'm yet to try this myself. My only real gripe with this product is that it's not got a great pigmentation but this can be easily solved by just applying a second layer!
