I have started to buy quite a few pieces of MUA make up from Superdrug as I have found that they are very good quality and are a fraction of the price of a lot of other brands. A friend had recommended this mascara to me and had said how good it was. I hadn't used it before so I thought I would give it a try and bought it for the very reasonable price of £2. It comes in extreme black, and black brown and I chose the black brown as I have quite fair skin and thought that the extreme black would look a bit harsh on me. It comes in a 7ml size which is average for a mascara and is black with the usual mascara screw top. It has the words Extreme Volume Mascara and MUA Make Up Academy Professional written on the side of the wand in white.
The actual wand is quite thick with large soft spaced out bristles as it is an extreme volume mascara and it does seem to collect a lot of mascara each time you pull it out and I have never had to pump the wand though which is good as this can dry it out. I will usually start at the outer edge of my eyelashes and then sweep the brush forwards and then repeat this through to the inner edge, and then do the same with my lower lashes. I find that one application is usually sufficient to create enough volume on my eyelashes.
I find that this mascara is easy to remove with make up wipes or make up remover lotion and cotton wool and although it is quite intense and thick I have never found that I have traces of it on my face or on the pillow in the morning.
This isn't my daily mascara as I don't really wear much make up for work and although I do wear mascara every day I prefer a normal one which just enhances my eyelashes and doesn't make them look too full or dark. However for a more pronounced look for evenings or even if you just like the fuller make up look this mascara is amazing and I can't fault it.
I have had this mascara for over twelve months now and it is showing no signs of running or drying out. I always use this mascara in the evenings when I go out and I would say that I probably use this about two or three times a week. I have never experienced any clumping on my eyelashes and it definitely makes my eyelases look longer and thicker and gives the impression that I have spent a lot of time on them, although my eyelashes are still separated and do still look quite natural.
At £2 I think this is a fabulous mascara and I will definitely buy this one again, or other similar mascaras in this range. This is highly recommended by me and deserves five out of five stars.
