SEVENTEEN - Doll'd Up Mascara Review

Monday, 25 March 2013

I received a book of coupons from Boots the other day and inside it had a SEVENTEEN (17, rebranded!) doll'd up mascara coupon for £2 only from the original £6.29 price. This mascara packaging is well designed and looks quite fancy.

"up to 24 hour curl" - the maximum I wear mascara is probably a couple of hours!

My first impressions is that it lengthens and separates my lashes well. First, I curled my lashes with my trusty Shu Uemura eyelash curler, then layered one coat on. It reminds me a bit of Benefit's Bad Gal mascara, apart from it didn't give as much volume, because that also lengthened my lashes with no clumps.

Another pro about this mascara is that it doesn't smell funny like some drugstore mascaras do. The bristles reminded me of Benefit's They're Real mascara. When I put it on, the wand did feel rather uncomfortable; it was quite spiky. Also, from the picture above, you can see it's a curved shape but I didn't feel like it gave my lashes enough curl upwards.

It was interesting to try and for £2 only, you can't really complain. I wouldn't have purchased this if it wasn't for the coupon to be honest as I have other mascaras which are good enough already. What's your favourite mascara?
