Review: 17 Va Va Voom Mascara

 I'm a huge fan of full long lashes. My eyes, I feel, are my best feature and I love enhancing them anyway I can, usually by mascara. I've used Maybelline's Colossal Mascara since I was about 14/15 and felt like trying out a new product. I didn't want to try anything out too expensive as I know cheap products work just as well, I spotted all kinds of different mascaras on the 17 counter, but I liked the description of the Va Va Voom product (and the name is fun too!)
It says. 'Dramatically volumised lashes with carbon black pigments. Extreme volume building brush for a false lash effect.' Sounds amazing! and to be fair it's pretty spot on! I was a bit afraid of the brush to begin with because it was very thick, but I used the little trick of wiping the access pigment off in a tissue before apply and ended up with beautiful, thick lashes!
I use about three coats to gain the 'false lash effect' 
 This would be a great alternative to using false lashes for a night out when you're in a rush to get ready! The brush really grips onto your lashes and grabs each one. The tip is easy to use to get to the outer and inner lashes. This mascara will last all day and night, it stays put pretty well, I wore it to work one night and it smudges a little bit under my eyes but nothing too noticeable, plus what mascara doesn't?! 
 I'm so impressed with this product and completly converted! I didn't think I would ever love another mascara other than my trusty Colossal but Va Va Voom has completely stolen my heart!
 It retails at £6.29 at Boots stores and online and is a complete bargain! (also cheaper than Colossal!) Finally a product that doesn't lie and does exactly what it says on the tin! 

What's your favourite mascara? xo
