I bought this mascara about a month ago for £2.99. I generally buy mascara from the Collection 2000 range but Miss Sporty caught my eye because the Miss Sporty range was beside the Collection 2000 range and the prices seemed to be a bit cheaper. One of the mascaras was already open, so I pulled out the wand to have a look at the consistency of the mascara. It looked better than the Collection 2000 range on this occasion so I thought it was worth a go.
I bought a black shade, usually I would buy brown/black but I read this shade can sometimes make your eyes look tired. The brush/wand is about 1.5cm (15mm) long, which I feel is a suitable length for a mascara brush/wand. The first time I used the mascara I was not very happy with it. The mascara brush seemed to hold too much liquid, which made it difficult to apply a nice even coat to my lashes. It looked clumpy and I had to use some tissue to remove the excess mascara.
Once I had adjusted to the new mascara I learnt a technique to applying it. I would run the brush against the top of the tube to remove the excess. After about a week I was happy. The mascara wears very well throughout the day and it's easy to remove at night. I have found I only need to apply one coat of the mascara and it separates your lashes very well, given your lashes that long and full lash look.
The mascara does sometimes flake a little bit if you wear it for longer than 8 hours, so on occasion I have noticed some black mascara flakes below my eyes. This has only happened on 1 or 2 occasions though. The only other thing that I'm not 100% happy with is that it's not very waterproof, so if you get caught out in the rain it can run a bit - I wouldn't wear it if I went swimming. Having said this I didn't buy it to be waterproof.
All in all, not a bad purchase. I would buy it again but it probably wouldn't be my first choice. The mascara was cheap and cheerful and I do believe I got value for money with this product.
Like many others on this site, I am always on the hunt for the best-priced and best value mascaras floating around the market; I love knowing that I have picked up a real bargain! I came upon this Miss Sporty mascara having read many positive reviews. The mascara claims to be eye opening, volumising and sculpting - pretty good, for the price - so I decided it was worth a go.
The whole Miss Sporty range is available in Boots, Superdrug and some other chemists, and is cheap and cheerful: this mascara was only £2.99 when I bought it in Boots. The brand aimed at pre/early teenagers and so can get over looked by beauty experts; the packaging is bright and fun, but hardly sophisticated. However, for me, this isn't a problem. This mascara's bright pink tube with silver lettering is cute and stands out in your make up bag, and is no worse than some of Maybelline and Rimmel's packaging.
The results? Very, very good. The brush is small and plastic, which means you can be quite precise and cover all of your lashes. This gives excellent definition. The brush's versatility is a huge plus. With careful application, your lashes can be lengthened, and well defined; I also found it easy to apply to my bottom lashes for a subtle, eye-opening effect. The mascara is quite fluid and 'wet', but not sticky; it takes a while to dry, but once it has, there is no smudging.The mascara stays put all day/all night and can be removed easily enough with wipes or cream.
However, I'm not convinced that it adds volume. Certainly the black colour makes the lashes look darker, but, while my lashes were separated beautifully, they did not look much thicker. This was a slight disappointment, but the effect can be improved by using a lash curler before hand. It is also worth pointing out - in case it wasn't obvious - that the mascara is not waterproof, but obviously most people are aware of this upon buying it.
Generally, this is the best 'budget' mascara I've ever used. It more than equals big brand names like Max Factor, Rimmel and all the other competitors. It is long-lasting and gives excellent definition; it is just as good as mascaras that are three times its price and I intend to buy it again. However, since I would like a more thickening mascara, I may still keep an eye out on other mascaras.
I bought myself a new mascara a week or three ago and I chose this Miss Sporty mascara, the black colour *this one doesn't come in a blue pakacge but in a bright pink one). I am not a major mascara user but from time to time like to use mascara so a descent one always can be found in my beauty case.

**About Studio lash instant volume mascara**
This mascara comes in a pink shimmery packing and I paid 4 Pounds for this mascara. I found it at the local pharmacy and I guess Miss Sporty can be bought anywhere around the UK at any pharmacy.
The mascara promises to give your eyelashes some more volume without your eyelashes sticking together or creating clumbs. I think it lives up to its promises as the mascara is easily applied with the little applicator that comes with it. The mascara doesn't have a very thick structure which makes is simply easier to apply to your eyelashes. I have pretty firm eyelashed so I don't want to look like Cruella de Ville who just had put on too much mascara. Thankfully, this mascara gives a natural effect. It doesn't give you any clumbs and dries within 1-2 minutes. Do be aware that this mascara sin't waterproof. When I showered last week and forgot to clean my face, my husband asked me what happened and why I had cried, as my mascara was spreading all over my face (I looked like a hysterical mummy)
There is 8 ml of mascara in this little package. More than enough to use for many mascare-moments. The mascara looks pretty funky in its pink shiny package!
I like this mascara because it isn't the most expensive one around and it does give enough volume to my eyelashes. If you have just applied the mascara, and you want to create even more volume it is useful to use an eyelash curler. It is a disadvantage that the mascara takes a few minutes to dry, especially for me because I wear glasses. So I always have to wait a few minutes before I can put those on again. If I am too quick, mascara will be on my glasses (it can easily be washed of, but still). It doesn't clumb on your eyelashes, which is great as I hate those nasty clumbs some very cheap mascaras tend to give you. The mascara can deal with some rain, but isn't waterproof. But overall I like the mascara although it probably isn't the best one around. Thats why I think 3 stars are more than enough for this Miss Sporty mascara.
I feel the need to put the record straight on Miss Sporty. Yes, it's primarily aimed at teenagers, but that doesn't mean that it isn't a serious contender in the make up brand stakes...
It is owned and made by the same people who do Rimmel, thus you should be able to see a lot of Rimmel in Miss Sporty products. Even the shape of the packaging is the same. I have noticed that a few months after something new is out in Rimmel, you can get it half the price from Miss Sporty.
The great thing about this range, is as it is aimed at teenagers, no product costs more than £3. If that isn't a reason to give it a try, I don't know what is.
This cutie is actually a really good quality mascara. It comes in Black, Brown and Black Waterproof.
The brush is moulded plastic, which means that it distributes product evenly through your lashes, meaning no clumps. It does give good volume too, so I would definately recommend it. Don't expect any fancy tricks, it does exactly what it says on the tube.
The brush is actually modelled on the Beyond Natural mascara by Revlon. The brush is tubular, and features rows of teeth all the way around. One of the rows is longer, meaning that it can sweep through your lashes, combing through the volumising formulation.
It really works, so if you fancy some fancy volume, then go ahead!
Im constantly looking round for new mascaras because although I can't afford the pricey ones, I still love having long, volumised lashes! I've found some of the very cheap products (less than £5) are suited to their price tag and don't really do anything, but there are a few gems out there and i'd say this is definitley one of them.
I've never really tried Miss Sporty products but this one caught my eye because of the bright colours and cheap price as I was browsing Boots. The tube looks pretty cool, as its a really shocking, shiny pink with silver writing. Its a pretty standard shape and flips into my makeup bag nicely.
The claim on the tube is that the mascara gives 'ultimate lash volumising and lash sculpting with a precise applicator'. Id say that this is pretty spot on - the effect you get is absolutley brilliant! The applicator looks quite skinny, and rather than a large, soft brush it has a much slimmer applicator with tiny soft plastic spikes. I think this is probably the whole reason for giving such a good effect, as it is really precise and gets every lash completley covered in mascara. It also does a brilliant of seperating the lashes, so no clumps - bonus! My eyelashes look really long and full of volume every time I use this, and it takes very little effort with just one or maybe two coats to really open up your eyes.
I haven't notices any smudging of the mascara (except when i rub my eyes, which is just a bit illy on my part really) and its also not too hard to get off with my make up wipes, because it doesn't dry as rock hard as some other brands seem to. The effect does last all day though.
At less than £3 this really is a brilliant bargain, and I'd probably recommend it over most of the more expensive brands as it does just as good a job.
Although I've always worn make up since I was about fourteen , I was never that interested in it , only using a little foundation and small amount of mascara and that was me done. Although , in the last year or so , my interest in 'health and beauty' has increased , and when I'm out shopping , I often find myself lingering around the 'make up' sections in shops.
I was first introduced to the Miss Sporty range when I subscribed to the teenage magazine , Bliss , a couple of years ago. My subscription came with a set of Miss Sporty make up , worth about £30 if I remember corectly. Among the range was a mascara called 'Fabulous Lash - Curved' which I immediately became a huge fan of. Ever since then I have been purchasing the mascara as it gives me a great eye look , and only sets me back £2.93 which I think is amazing value. Usually I would think 'ooh cheap and nasty' , if I seen it in a shop (before trying it) and comparing it to all the expensive ones such as Loreal which cost about £10.
Although this is my favourite mascara , when I heard about another mascara from Max Factor which was said to give you a 'fake eyelash look' , I immediately wanted to try it and bought it for approximately £10 , as I was going on a big night out with my friends and wanted my eyes to look 'huge'. But I was disappointed with this mascara as all it did was smudge all around my eyes all night even though all I was doing was sitting in a pub talking , not sweating , nor rubbing my eyes , yet it still went everywhere. So , back to my faithful mascara , Miss Sporty.
Still on the look out for a 'night out' mascara , I came across another mascara in the Miss Sporty range ; this time one called 'Studio Lash' which I immediately put in my basket , again costing me less than £3.
The mascara tube is bright pink , just like the other mascara I use , although it is slightly darker and has a more 'straighter' look to is compared to the more rounded looking 'Fabulous Lash - Curved' one. The words 'Studio Lash' are written in two different silver fonts as well as the famous 'Miss Sporty logo' which has wrapped itself around the tube.
I pull the wand out ; the brush is quite scary looking with it's sharp looking bristles , each sitting there perfectly straight. There is a good amount of mascara on the brush. I apply a little , after only a couple of 'brushes' my eyelashes look instantly better and wider looking. The little brush individually 'decorates' each lash with mascara and seperates them to give them a 'wide eyed' and fresh look. With the other Miss Sporty mascara I have , although it does give me a look in the end , I do have to apply the mascara A LOT of times , whereas with this one , it only takes half the time , which is great , as it means I can get my perfect eye look quickly.
Another thing I like about this mascara is the brush. The bristles are so tiny that it means I can reach even the usually-what-would-be-trickest eyelashes to get too , therefore giving me an even look. It also makes my eyelashes appear stronger and longer. It doesn't leave any clumps either which is a bonus!
I definately like the price of this product , at less than £3 it is amazing value! I really cannot believe that for me it beats all the expensive ones ; doing the job a lot more thoroughly and advanced , without any smudges or anything! It also means that I save about £7 , which I can put towards buing something else.
I would definately recommend this mascara ; it gives me the perfect eye look I'm after , and at such a great price too!
Thanks For Reading!
