So im sure if everyone could, they would want a mascara to be cheap, and not pay the high prices that some of these brands charge for a simple mascara
I’ve read somewhere that mascara formulas are basically the same, with a few different ingredients here and there, but they are pretty much the same.
Today I thought you know what I am not going to pay the expensive prices, that these brands such as MAC and Maxfactor charge. I was totally against paying these prices today for some reason. At the end of the day you can work with any product, you dont even need to be these fake makeup artists out there, as they do not even have a clue how to cater to people who either dont have the money or just dont want to pay these ridiculous prices. Every “makeup artists” video ive watched, well the well known artists, talk about MAC being the best and Maxfactor and a few others, this is not the case.
Here is the mascara i got for around £10 last month.
So above is the Bourjois – Push up Volume Glamour mascara, which is about £9
The month before that I got Maxfactor mascaras. Which were around £12 each.
So today I went into Primark, yes Primark everyone. Now I know what your thinking, oh primark thats crap, but let me tell you it is not. So I got this one below
So this mascara was £1, and it works exactly the same as branded Mascara, it is exactly the same as your Maxfactor and Bourjois, Rimmel and even No7. I have had all the expensive mascaras, and sometimes I am not even happy with the results, the clumping and the excess product that stays in the top of the mascara tube that goes into your wand and makes it awful when you apply it.
The only thing I will say is, the wand on the Primark mascara is your average wand, sort of like Miss Sporty or a cheaper mascara brand. However I played around with different wands from old mascaras, wash them before playing around, as you dont want all the dried up mascara going into your new mascara.
So the wand with the Primark mascara is below
As you can see the wand is quite thin and just a standard small wand.
This is the Bourjois wand
As you can see, a thicker more precise wand with bristles to seperate your lashes.
So I basically used this Bourjois wand and used the primark mascara, it is exactly the same as having the “Bourjois mascara formula” on the wand, only it wasn’t, it was our little cheap friend Primark.
So the trick is, it does not matter what formula you have, £1 or even £22, basicall you will no doubt end up with the same result, it all depends on that wand you use. And I bet most of you have those dried up mascaras still somewhere, with the massive wands or the better wands.
It has made me never want to buy a single branded mascara ever again, not because I am poor or anything, I have the money to buy them, but because I do not see the point in spending so much money for a product you can get the same results, using a £1 mascara.
I have seen so many makeup artists, and their expensive brands on how to get big extreme mascara eyes, and that you may not have the same result if you get a cheaper one, but my darlings its all bullshit, you can achieve the same look with cheaper alternatives. If these makeup artists were actual makeup artists they would know this, and probably a few of them do, but most of them do not.
So there you have it guys, you never have to worry about expensive mascaras breaking into your budgets ever again 😄
Bye bye for now.
