=Miss Sporty Mascara=
Miss Sporty is a makeup range that is sold in Superdrug, and is the cheaper end of the range of make-up, with prices starting at £1 for the products.
I usually end up leaving my toiletries when I go abroad, about 2 years ago I forget to pack my make-up bag, (No 7 mascara etc), so since then I purchase less expensive items and use them for the duration of the holiday and leave them there.
The mascara comes in a metalic blue tube, and I paid £3.99 for it, it is a 10ml mascara, the tube is sealed in a plastic wrapping, so at least you know that no-one else has had the mascara out.
My mascara is the black colour, and I was very impressed that this was a waterproof variety.
I found the brush to be a standard mascara brush, it looked like it held a good application of mascara on it. I found it really easy to apply, there was no clumps, I put 2 sets of applications on, and I was really impressed with the quality, my lashes looked longer, defined and the lashes were evenly covered
=Length of wear=
I have wore this mascara both on day times and evening, I found that on the day wear, even after 8 hours the mascara looked like it had just been applied, and again on evenings even 6 hours later, it still looked like it had just been put on, I certainly did not notice any difference.
I had to use make-up remover wipes as soap and water with my flannel did not even touch the mascara, once I had the wipes, I did need to give them a rub to help the mascara remove. To me this just enforced how good the mascara was.
=Not tested on animals=
=Would I recommend=
I would highly recommend this mascara, great value and certainly gives more expensive mascaras a run for their money.
Miss Sporty black waterproof mascara is targeted for teenagers. The price is for students and young adults, many of whom are still involved in compulsory education. I would be called a cheap skate if my adult friends saw me using this. This is my secret mascara. I hide it at the bottom of my make-up drawer just in case any one is nosy enough to have a look in there. If you do - how rude!
Why I have it:
I am not a heavy user of make-up. There are plenty of times when I don't wear any at all. There are many days when I can't be bothered with the whole plaster-my-face routine but still want a touch of extra sex appeal. So if I could chose to own only one item of make-up it has to be mascara.
The problem arose when I got a surprise call to meet with a friend. I had expensive mascara at home but none with me. I dived into the nearest shop - Superdrug - and there I spotted mascara for, wonder of wonders, about four little pounds. Purchase made and I even had change jangling in my pocket!
This comes in a shiny metallic blue 10ml mascara bottle which is very cool for the bogs in school but not so good for taking out in a high class restaurant. Oh, I can be a snob, but not so much of a snob to try and get away with this cheap mascara for one day.
I did experience a touch of anxiety once back out on the high street. I couldn't un-wrap the plastic from around it. All right so it meant that no kids had been playing with the contents and passing on eye infections but really does it have to be so awkward? My nails couldn't break it and I didn't have nail scissors on me. I took a deep breath, returned to Superdrug where a lovely member of staff found some scissors and with a bit of jabbing got the cover off!
Then I had a mission to find a toilet with a mirror. Once found, I dabbed the brush on the top of the tube to avoid too much on the slim-lined brush. I found it easy to apply the dark black, waterproof mascara. I always apply over the top of my lashes and never from underneath.
I was relieved to find there was no fluid collecting under my lashes as the consistency was acceptably thick without being gloopy. There were no clumps left on my eye lashes and the hairs were separated. The smaller lashes on the lower lid looked extended and defined. I knew that I looked just fine and could flutter these Miss Sporty lashes at any man I fancied. - Oh dear, I'm starting to sound like a teenager. I think this product takes me right back in time!
Luckily, I've never cried with this mascara on. It is meant to be waterproof. I have been out in the rain and never noticed any streaking. I've tried to wash it off with soap and water and only a little black streaked. In fact, I had to put a bit more pressure with make-up remover to get it off. Therefore, I think it's safe for tears.
Well, it turns out not to be a one day wonder mascara. It stays on for hours without a top up. I feel good. It makes my lashes and eyes look just fine. I can't believe that something so cheap doesn't have any problems but it doesn't! Well, apart from the adult peer pressure that will surely disapprove of my childish choice but hey, I've got more money to spend on the drinks!
A good mascara; about as cheap as they come, and requires the adult to hide the bottle, to avoid teasing. I can recommend my secret little bottle of mascara and the good news gets better as Miss Sporty do not test on animals.
I love mascara although I haven't yet found a brand that I like enough to stay faithful to. I was in Boots the other day and they have a really good offer on the cosmetics. They are all buy one get the second half price accross all ranges, mix and match. I couldn't pass up this opportunity so I decided to buy some new mascara which I was much in need of. I decided to try this as I used to use the Miss sporty range mascara before and it was quite good.
I chose this one as it is waterproof and I have quite watery, runny eyes. It's just £1.99 for a 10ml tube, so when I took advantage of the offer, I got two for just £2.98. You can't grumble at that price!
The mascara comes in a nice light blue tube with silver writing on it. It doesn't look like a cheap mascara, the packaging is similar to what you'd get with an expensive brand. They were sealed when I bought them with clear plastic which I liked as a lot of mascaras in the shops aren't meaning other people could have opened them or tried them. Although the seal was good, it was a pain to get off!
The mascara itself is quite thick in consistency, not too runny or thin. I bought the black one as I always find it gives better results than brown or other colours. The brush is quite thick and has lots of bristles which allows you to distribute the product well onto your eyelashes.
I brush the mascara onto my eyelashes from root to tip repeatedly then rub the brush to side to side going up my eyelashes. I use the tip of the brush to distribute the product onto the inner and outer corners of my eyelashes to get a wider eyed look.
Overall, this mascara is brilliant. My eyelashes looked thicker and longer and the product lasts incredibly well. I normally have to re-apply mascara by the middle of the day because it's wore off with the help of my watery eyes but this procuct stayed put. It's quite hard to get it off infact, especially if you try to wash it off with water like I did. I find it comes off easiest with an oil based remover like the No7 one or with moisturiser and cotton wool. I'd definitely recommend this mascara, it looks really nice and lasts ages. For a price like that, you definitely can't complain.
I have received so many different make up products as birthday presents this year that I'm starting to think people are trying to tell me something! But I'm not going to complain as it saves me paying out for new things.
I received a few mascaras this year and one of those was Miss Sporty Studio Lash. I have heard of Miss Sporty products before but have never tried them or thought of trying them.
The Studio Lash mascara claims to be the 'ultimate eye opening mascara' with instant lash sculpting and a 'perfectly separating next-generation applicator'. If you can understand the last part then please explain it to me! I don't understand all these different applicators that mascaras have!
Miss Sporty also claim that with this mascara lashes are lifted up to 70% and longer up to 60%, with no clumps.
The mascara comes in an 8ml, bright green tube with silver writing describing all of Miss Sporty's claims. The tube is long and thin and has a screw cap that releases the mascara wand, as the majority of mascaras do.
The packaging is nice a bright and stands out next to other, more boring, products but doesn't look as expensive as the boring ones.
The packaging states that this mascara has a plastic brush and, when you pull it out, it is obvious that the brush is plastic. It is very thin, with lots of little 'spikes' all the way around it and is quite sturdy on the end of the wand and only bends very slightly.
To be honest, when I first tried this I didn't think I was going to like it at all, as I prefer thicker mascara brushes. However, once I had applied it and looked at my eyelashes properly, I could instantly see the difference between using a thin and thick mascara brush.
Usually, my eyelashes look very long but can look quite clumpy. With this mascara my eyelashes were longer than they usually are and were all completely separated, with no clumps at all. It is also very easy to apply to your bottom lashes, as the wand is thin and does not smudge across the bottom of your eye.
I have applied this mascara before going on a night out before, come home and collapsed into bed and when I wake up the next morning my eyelashes still look perfect!
From a quick look online, I can see that the Miss Sporty products are quite cheap. Considering the fact that I would usually pay £12 for a mascara that leaves my eyelashes clumpy, I don't think I can go wrong switching to this mascara from now on!
Despite my hesitation, this has turned out to be a great product and I would highly recommend it to anyone!
A few months ago I was going out of town and wanted to take a mascara along for the day-time. I wanted a "disposable" mascara-one that was cheap and that I could even throw away after using for a few days if need be. I didn't want to take my regular mascara along in case I misplaced it or something. I did some research online before heading out, and the Miss Sporty mascaras seemed to get decent ratings. I always felt that Miss Sporty was a brand aimed mainly at teenagers who were just starting out with make-up and couldn't afford high-end make-up. Anyway, I headed over to my local Superdrug where I went through a number of budget mascaras before finally deciding on this one because of 2 main reasons:
1. It claims to be a lash defining mascara and this is what I basically needed as I was only going to use this during the day so I just needed some definition, and not a dramatic, false lash effect. However, it does state that you can also "build" your lashes "from natural to dramatic" so I thought I could use this at night too if need be.
2. It is waterproof. I wear contact lenses and my eyes sometimes water when I am applying eye make-up or when it is very windy and/or something goes into my eye. I always buy waterproof mascaras to prevent mascara from running down my face.
As I had never tried anything from the Miss Sporty range before, I was interested in seeing how this would perform.
The mascara comes in a sky blue tube. The writing on the tube is in silver and the packaging is quite simple but looks nice enough.
Everyone has different lashes and thus, different requirements from mascaras. My lashes are dark and straight, and while they are not very long and thick, they are of a reasonable length and thickness, and are definitely noticeable. I always curl my lashes before applying mascara as I feel that this makes my lashes look nicer and also makes it easier to apply mascara.
This mascara doesn't make any fancy promises-it doesn't promise to curl your lashes or make them 10 times longer or thicker. It just states that it will "define" and "build" your lashes, and I feel that while it does the former-adds definition to my lashes-it doesn't really build my lashes much to make them look more dramatic. I own this mascara in black so it does make my lashes look a little darker. The mascara wand is just an ordinary run-of-the-mill mascara wand, but works quite well and gives even coverage. You do tend to get excess mascara on the wand but I just wipe it off on a piece of tissue, so it's not really a problem. There are a number of different techniques for applying mascara, but what I do is hold the wand at the base of my lashes and then rotate the brush up through my lashes. I feel that this prevents my lashes from clumping and keeps them separated. The mascara does add a little bit of length to my lashes, and just makes them look a little more defined. It doesn't make my lashes clump, and keeps them nice and separated, which is quite important to me as I really hate lashes that are clumped together. It dries quite quickly, doesn't smudge, and once dry I have had no problems with the mascara running when my eyes have watered, so it is waterproof, but comes off easily with an eye make up remover.
Price and Availability
The mascara is available to buy from Boots, Superdrug and some chemists, and can also be bought online. It usually retails at £3.29 which I think is a reasonable price to pay for such a product, but I'm sure I must have bought it on offer as I always reach for things on offer.
If you're looking for a mascara that will give you a dramatic, false lash effect, I would not recommend this. However, if like me, you are just looking for a good daytime mascara that will just a bit of definition to your lashes and give them a bit of oomph, then I would recommend this mascara. I bought it for my holiday but I am now using this on a regular basis as it works just as well as some of the high-end mascaras, and is so affordable.

I have had this mascara for a few months now, I only used it once and then threw it into my make up junk bag because I didn't like it, but the other night I was in the mood to try on lots of crazy make up and decided to use this and then I realised its quite nice actually!
The price of the mascara which I have is £3.29 in Superdrug and is a bit more expensive in my local chemist..I have no idea why but I guess some places like to rip you off!
I think this is a decent price for a decent mascara.
The mascara is smooth to touch and comes in a hot pink long tube which is very girly looking, over the hot pink is silver writing containing a tiny bit of information on the product..not a lot if I am honest.
The stick is black and the brush has a slight curve to it.
Over all, from the appearance it makes me think nothing..yeah that's right, absolutely nothing. I'm sat here just staring at it and it just doesn't say anything at all to me..but when I twist it open its telling me that its going to be dramatic but the tube just doesn't talk to me at all, it has no personality, just sits there looking all pretty and girly.
FABULOUS LASH MASCARA
On the website, it tells me that the mascara it is meant to reach each and every lash evenly from root to tip giving a wide eyed look.
I didn't find the brush uncomfortable in my hand, it felt fine. Excess mascara comes out when you pull up the stick but a few dabs with some kitchen roll and its grand.
The mascara goes on quite evenly if you get the excess off, it curves my lashes upwards and does open up my eyes, the colour is very dark and my lashes also look long with it on, the lashes in the corner which usually don't look the best look really nice with this mascara, the brush kind of makes them the longest of every lash and I think this really helps with the wide eye look.
The mascara also seems waterproof as well, I actually had a good sob with this on and it didn't really move, just a little black line under my eye but that's all!
I think this mascara is a great little buy and I will be using this along with my other ones, I'm not saying its amazing but it does what it says and if you do want that open eye look you should go for it.
I have recently been trying out a few of the 'Miss Sporty' range products. I've always wanted to try out the mascara so I went to my local drugstore and purchased it. I was quite impressed with the packaging. The next day I applied it and I could not believe how long it made my lashes. The brush wasn't too big or too small and therefore this was a bonus. It gives you great volume and seperates your lashes perfectly. I wasn't expecting much from this product because I found it was quite cheap. My instincts were that it would probably just clump all my lashes together and look disgusting, but surprisingly it didn't. I am very impressed with this product and I will highly recommend you buy this if you want to buy a mascara that gives you the volume you want for your lashes. It is affordable, I can't remember the price exact but it wasn't any more than £3.00. Why waste your money on a £10 mascara when you can buy one for half the price and it be just as good? If you want beautiful fluttering long lashes then this is the product for you!
In a recent mission to save money I have cut back my Maybelline mascara to Miss Sporty and seriously my eyes still look. When I bought this from Boots around two weeks ago I was so surprised. I thought it is £3.00 so it is worth a try but when I started to apply it to my lashes my face must have dropped. My lashes looked so long and they weren't clumpy or thick and unattractive. I love make up as you can probably see from my other reviews so if I rant, excuse me!
The brush for this exact mascara that is in the image above is just the standard mascara brush no snazzy combs or anything like that. But I think this works an absolute treat and it makes doing your make up fun because you know your eye lashes are not going to go wrong and stick out in all the wrong places. So, this comes in a standard mascara tube, I have it in black but they do it in brown and blue as well.
Miss Sporty is quite a well known make and is linked with teenagers but anybody on a budget would also love this. To save money, this was my wild card and it worked. In the past I have had Chanel and Dior mascara's and they have dried up on me very quickly. By buying this I saved around £15.00! Amazing.
I recommend this to you all, my family are all using this at the moment, spread the word! ]
The first thing you'd probably notice with this mascara is the price as it is less than £2 and therefore considerably cheaper than most of the other ones on the market. This, along with it's rather cheap and basic looking packaging does not really give the best first impression, I'll admit. This is made worse when you see the other mascaras with their various claims about lengthening lashes and so on which are promoted through glossy adverts (many filmed with false eyelashes, might I add).
The 'miss sporty' range is mostly aimed at teenagers, the products are all fairly low priced and basic. However, I would say having tried this mascara that this product is suitable for any age range and gives very good value for money.
The mascara is easy to apply and gives darker and slightly lengthened lashes. It lasts for quite a long time once you have it on though beware that it does have the tendancy to smudge, particularly if wet, however it doesn't run.
I would say that the mascara does not provide quite the extreme effects that some more expensive brands can give but if you are looking for a good mascara for daily wear you can't go far wrong with this. Considering that many mascaras can cost around £20 and give very similar effects I would consider this extremely good value for money and it will last you quite a long time.
Miss Sporty is a make-up range which is aimed, primarily, at teenagers. Sold at independant chemist chains and high street giant Superdrug the products are some of the cheapest available in store with most of their products costing around £1.95. Price wise they just about match budget ranges like Collection 2000 but are considerably less than brands like Bourjois or Maybelline. The prices are an excellent lure for cash strapped teens and for older ladies (like me) looking for beauty bargains!
I have tried several products in the Miss Sporty range beginning with their jelly style lip glosses. After discovering that these were practically identical to my more expensive Rimmel lip gloss tubes I began to trust the quality of the brand. I then started to test their other products, specifically their mascaras. It has become increasingly difficult to get a mascara product for less than a fiver these days with most of the main make-up brands creating these high science formulas and sleek brush designs. Miss Sporty steal the jargon of these brands by claiming their range of mascaras can "lengthen lashes" with their "precision brush" but they charge a fraction of the price of other brand mascaras. Most of the main range mascaras cost around £3.. The cheapest mascara in the range seems to be the 'Be Connected' mascara at £1.95, which I'll be reviewing here.
The 'Be Connected' range is a innovative new idea by the brand. Products in this range include mascara, eye shadow, lip gloss, eye liner and concealer. These are produced in stick style tubes rather than pots or pallattes. The novelty of the idea is that you can plug these tubes into one another to make a double sided stick which you can pop into your handbag. You can combine any of the products in the range according to your needs. Alternatively, you can just have the seperate products without connecting them at all. When I first bought these products I found it impossible to learn how to plug them together and also found that the length of the stick when eventually connected was very long and a bit too long to carry in a small handbag!
The Be Connected Mascara comes in three colours - black, cocoa and blue. I chose the cocoa which is a dark chocolate brown colour. It is so dark that on my lashes it simply looks black although repeat applications to increase volume make this colour look less dramatic than the vampish black.
The mascara comes in a small tube with very little information about the product on the packaging. Miss Sporty do describe this as providing a "catwalk look" though and also state that the liquid formula is "ophthalmologically tested". The lid - which also doubles as a click in connector top - is easy to unscrew. The brush is approximately 3cm long and has a twisted, spiral brush design. The bristles are very soft. The mascara tends to coagulate in the brush like a thick paint. The mascara ha a fresh, clean fragrance which I find appealing.
Application is easy and creates a good look and finish. The mascara simply glides onto lashes and doesn't clog or leave any lumps. It seperates, defines lashes and lengthens them but does not increase the volume of each lash. You need to leave lashes to dry for a minute then repeat the application in order to create a more dramatic appearance.
I find that I never suffer from the dreaded 'panda eyes' when wearing this mascara. It doesn't crumble and cause grainy pieces to irritate the eyes. It is suitable for contact lens wearers like myself. It is long lasting and difficult to rub off should you touch your eyes through the day. It can be easily removed, though, with soap and water or a specific eye make-up removal oil.
I am ultimately very pleased with the Miss Sporty mascara. I do feel that the 'Be Connected' idea is quite a handy way to ensure that you never have to fumble around in your handbag for your various make-up products again. I do feel that the Miss sporty brand is acceptable and worth buying if you are a little or a lot older than a teenager!

I received Miss Sporty Mascara for my birthday from a friend a few years ago and I was surprised at just how good it was.
---- The Packaging ----
Miss Sporty Mascara has a very simplistic packaging which I do not actually mind as it is a good mascara. It comes in a blue tube with silver writing and a silver band around the top.
--- The Mascara ---
I do admit I can sometimes be a cosmetics snob so I was surprised at this mascara. Miss Sporty Mascara provides eyelashes with a good lift and adds a little extra length. The effects are not ground breaking but they are pretty good. It also adds quite a bit of volume to lashes as well which I was also amazed at. It was good for day wear as the product does not create massive over the top lashes just nice longer ones.
The only problem this mascara has is that it tends to dry out after a little while but that was not a big deal for me because I have plenty other mascaras.
I would say that this would be a good mascara to combine with other mascaras for a little lash layering. It would be good because it did not flake easily and would act as a good base. I think it would work wonders and would really help create rather large, thick eyelashes if it was paired with other mascara products.
--- The Price ---
You can pick up a tube of Miss Sporty Mascara at a Superdrug store for around £2.93. This in my opinion is a good cheap price for something that does work.
Miss Sporty mascara is an amazing alternative to other brands if you don't want to waste too much money. I find this very reliable and good quality and it does not cost more then £3.Over the years I even paid £20 for some mascaras and honestly I could of lived without them, I would of not lost anything.
The mascara doesn't run and the brush always applies the right product onto the lashes. You can build up colour as much as you want for a day or evening looks works wonderful.
The quantity is generous in the tube and you get a lot of use out of it The tube feels sturdy and well made, it won't brake easly. Defiantly worth it!
You can also use the wand to darken the eyebrows if you want but I recommend you don't use the same tube for eyelashes and eyebrows due of hygienically rezones.
I am a beauty product addict - you name it, hair products, make up, skin care products - if they make it - I have bought it, thought about buying it, or am saving up to get it!
Whilst browsing the instore make up collections one day, I came across a brand I hadn't taken much notice of before. Why? Because it screams out "I'm for teenagers" and I'm a 33 year old mother of 4, admittedly, one of those is a teenager, so I could have pretended I was doing research on her behalf...will have to remember that one for future reference.
Anyway, I digress.
I think what attracted me at the time was the promotion they were doing. Promotions and make up are my idea of heaven and I find it difficult to resist their charms. I picked up the Miss Sporty XXLONG Mascara, which claims to provide "Super-long, perfectly seperated lashes!" Well, it was cheap and cheerful, so what the heck, let's give it a go I thought, or words to that effect.
I picked up colour number 2 - or "Cocoa". It's a gorgeous chocolate brown colour. I was pleasantly surprised when I opened the tube (size 7ml). The wand is "normal looking" but there wasn't the usual "gunk" that is often found. Am I the only one that gets frustrated by having to wipe off (and therefore often waste) so much of the product off the wand before being able to apply the mascara without fear of causing a gunky looking mess on my lashes? The mascara goes on well and doesn't cause the lashes to clump together. I'm not sure it lives up to it's "super long lashes" promise, but it did seperate and define my lashes nicely. Actually exceptionally well for a cheapy product!
Miss Sporty is a great brand, the products last a long time, they are loads cheaper than brands like Rimmel, Mabelline and No 7.
I bought a Miss Sporty mascara the other day in Boots, I wear mascara everyday and never leave the house without it on. I usually buy collection 2000 but spotted that Miss Sporty had a promotion where everything was under £3. Also if you buy it in Boots and have an advantage card you get 8points on this particular mascara.
The mascara was priced at £2.93, the same price as collection 2000. I decided I would get Miss Sporty instead.
The mascara brush isnt anything special, its not got any curves or anything. The mascara itself spreads on quite nicely. Its not lumpy or too thick. It made my eyelashes stand out more than with the collection 2000 brand. You dont get a massive bottle of it for £2.93 but I reckon there is enough there to last for 2 months before I will need to replace it as that is what is recommended with mascara as it dries out.
If you arent too fussy about brands, and wear mascara regularly then this is a great one to try. If you are looking for incredibly long lashes then try something a bit more expensive as this just highlights them a bit more than usual.
Under the burden of heavy student debt I was forced today to go in search of very cheap mascara. I know this is no easy challenge especially when one has such high expectations for the miracle eye-product that is mascara. Being a usual L'Oreal Volume Mascara girl, seeking volumious lashes without any clogging, packaged in a way one would not be ashamed of, I was dubious that I could buy anything for under the usual £6.99. But lo and behold there in that faithful store that is Superdrug I found a mascara that was both aesthetically pleasing and effective. As part of the 'Miss Sporty' range aimed at teenagers, the 'voluminous mascara' was charged at a very reasonable £1.99. At this price one would doubt it's efficacity, but I have just emerged from the bathroom, with thicker, sleeker lashes. It's application brush would rival any of the leading brands, without clogging, and the product itself - in bright blue packaging makes you feel young and sparkly (even if the thought of student debt is hanging over like a dark cloud!) Now that's what I call a mascara - not only does it uplift your lashes but also your spirit - and a snip at £1.99!
Afordable mascara for teenagers /
