I use a wide range of mascaras rather than sticking to one brand or type - I like to try out different products. My most recent purchase, and the mascara that I am currently using is the Maybelline Volume Express Turbo Boost mascara. This cost me £6.19 in Superdrug and I purchased in Turbo Black (currently in the 3 for 2 promotion in this store).
The mascara is said to have 'Instant volume with no lumps or clumps. Up to 3 x the volume of normal mascara with an exclusive formula for all day wear'. The tube is black with a silver ring where the lid screws on to the bottle. It is quite round and chunky in design so both the bottle and brush are comfortable to hold during application. The brush itself is quite thick with lots of bristles. The wand is quite long and easy to angle and direct so you can apply to inner lashes without smudging. The mascara applies easily to the lashes and, with just one stroke, the lashes are sufficiently coated. The colour is rich and dark and quite dramatic, so this is great for evening wear.
I find the mascara curls and lengthens my lashes well (especially when used in conjunction with eyelash curlers) as well as giving the extra volume the name would suggest. The increase in volume is noticeable even after just one coat but still keeps a natural look. There is no clumping or smudging, so it does look very good.
Overall, I find this a really great mascara, that holds all day yet is also easy to remove. It is natural in appearance, yet the colour is dark and dramatic. I would definitely recommend this mascara and would purchase this again.
