Have You Discovered? | Mascara


Helloooo everyone, how's your weeks been? it's that time again, time for a Have You Discovered post. This week's theme is mascara, and this post is going to be an ode to my favourite mascara by ELF. I've been using ELF's Mineral Mascara for a while now, I'm actually getting near to the end of it, and it is definitely something I will be repurchasing.

When I first discovered ELF and was choosing a mascara from their collection to buy, I was initially put off by the amount of choice on their website. There are loads! I was overwhelmed by whether to chose volume increasing, lengthening or defining mascara (and those are just a few) when in reality I just wanted something that could give me all of those things! In the end I went for their Mineral Mascara, a decision that I haven't regretted.

On first applying this mascara, I wasn't blown away. Yes, my lashes were darker and slightly lengthier, but not as much as past mascaras had made them. On applying a second coat, I was instantly impressed. The second coat fanned my lashes apart defining them gorgeously and adjusted the length and and darkness more to my taste. Since then, I've been hooked. Now I know that I can manipulate this mascara to either be suitable for a night out, or just everyday make-up, I adore it. Despite the fact I do need a few coats to get proper dramatic, voluptuous lashes the fabulous end result makes it worth it. Being able to use this mascara however I want to get whatever look I desire has made it one of my favourites, in my eyes it's sort of an all-in-one; I have an everyday mascara in with a dramatic evening one.

Lots of love,
xXx

  1. They look lovely after that second application (really makes all the difference) ... well done on getting a good picture of your eyes, I couldn't get the picture to look right so I didn't add it in to mine

    1. Haha, thanks! I just take a normal zoomed out picture and then crop, getting too close to my eyes with the camera ruins the light! Xx

  9. Wow! I mean, I've always been turned off by elf because they are so cheap. I always think "you get what you pay for, so..." but I will have to give this mascara a chance!

  10. Ooh this does look nice, I always wondered whether their mascara would be good as it's quite cheap and mascara can be hard to get right. I've only ever ordered from their once but loved the stuff I got!
