H&M mascara

I'm in a forever search for my holy grail mascara, preferably at an affordable price point. So last time I was waiting at the till at H&M and saw their Volume Mascara for only €2.99 I thought I'd pick it up and give it a whirl.

only on upper lashes

I've got mixed feelings about this mascara. The first few times when I applied it, I actually did quite like it. It was volumising, but in a natural way and I thought it would be great for those who don't want a lot of makeup on their face. It didn't clump together and my lashes just looked good. I didn't wear this mascara when I wore eyeliner, because my lashes kind of dissapeared when I did. It just wasn't dramatic enough. I also had to apply around three coats before I got to the point I liked it.

The more I kept wearing it though - this is probably due to it drying out a little - the less I liked it. It started clumping together, I didn't get the volume I used to achieve and it just didn't work for me anymore. I kept on using it because I wanted to know if I would ever regain the same results as I once had, but nope. It looked alright when I applied it, but it lost a lot if it's volume during the day.

About the brush itself; I like it. it isn't too big so that you got mascara everywhere. It's also easy for fast 'I-need-to-get-out-of-the-house' application.

My lashes are naturally curly, but I think that if you have naturally straight lashes, this mascara certainly won't be something you enjoy. I don't want to bee too negative, but I just don't think that this mascara is even worth it's €2.99...

Have you tried this mascara? If you got it to work better than I did, please tell me how. Although it probably will be too late, seeing I'll throw this one away as soon as this post goes up. Enough bad eyelash days for me...


  1. I like how sperated it makes your lashes..
