I didn't get this for my birthday, but the pictures have been sitting unused for about a week now, and I'd kept forgetting to write about this: the Fashionista Double Collection 2-Step Mascara (£8)*. This is one of those dual-ended mascara with a white base coat mascara on one side, and a black 'coverage, colour and volume' mascara on the other.
I quite liked putting the white on first, it was fun. And I will admit that my eyelashes looked thicker and had more volume (you can especially see this in the bottom two photos, whilst the top black-eyelashed photos doesn't really focus on my lashes). My lashes do not hold much of a curl, but this mascara neither boosted that curl or lessened it.
The one thing I will say is that it was very, very difficult to get the black to cover the white, and it actually ended up making my lashes look rather grey. You can see in the pictures where I have missed bits, and whilst it is not incredibly noticeable, it does dilute the intensity of the black.
Whilst I like how thick this makes my lashes look, I don't like that it makes them look grey.
What do you think?
