Boots Natural Collection Water Guard Mascara
Advantages: Very Cheap, lengthens lashes, seperates and adds definition, doesn't clump.
Disadvantages: none :)
I can honestly say, that i think this may have been the best £2 i have ever spent. I have tried many mascara's, from the more expensive highstreet brands to this, natural collection one from boots. I have to say that the thing that attracted me to this particular mascara, above all others, was the price! At under £2, i felt like i was robbing boots when i walked out with my purchase! Another thing that attracted me to it, was the fact that it is waterproof, I find that waterproof mascara's tend to stay on a lot longer than their non-waterproof competitiors.
The mascara itself is very simple, it comes without any gimics, which is very rare these days, it simply does what mascara has always been known for doing, adds colour, length and definition to lashes. The price with this product speaks for itself so i dont suppose they feel the need to advertise it too much. It comes in a very traditional mascara tube, and just has a simple brush head, none of these fancy two sided brushes or comb features that you may have come to expect, but which actually (in my opinion in any case) make it harder to apply the mascara succesfully.
The liquid is a very nice consitancy, not so runny that it takes ages to dry, but not so thick that it causes eyelashes to clump either, infact i think boots have got it spot on with this product. It goes on easily, makes lashes look a lot longer, but not spidery or fake, and above all (in my opinion again) doesn't make them clump together, this is very important to me as i hate clumpy, spidery lashes. I have very sensitive eyes meaning that some mascara's can tend to irritate me, I have had no such problem with this product and have been using it for around two months now.
I will definately be purchasing this product again as i am very happy with it, I would recommend it to anyone who wears mascara, as i think its as good, if not better than most other mascara's on offer on the highstreet, and its also a complete bargain!!!
Summary: I would definately recommend this product to anyone, it is a fantastic product, and very cheap :)
