I have been addicted to Lancome Mascara for years. Nothing, but nothing came close...every single Lancome mascara was fab from Hypnose to L'Extreme they were all fabulous - no flaking, no smudging and big, bad fat lashes were always guaranteed. They were always at the forefront of mascara technology - and I worshipped at the vibrating mascara altar when they bought out their oscillating one.
I never thought another brand would come close, and believe you me, over the years I did try other brands (like to keep it fresh and all) but I always came back to Lancome.
The other day I was in Boots stocking up on another staple (I really must blog about my fail safe products) the No7 Protect and Perfect Serum and was given a £5 off voucher - on an impulse (and it always is with me) I picked up the No7 new mascara which is called Exquisite Curl. It had a £3 off launch promo so add that to my £5 off mascara, It cost me £5.
It was the best £5 I have ever spent. Not only do I have big, bad, fat lashes, they also curl up which renders my eyelashes curlers to the back of my make up box (yes Box!). I have had so many people comment on my eyelashes and I can report that it doesn't smudge or flake.
AS to whether or not it will replace my Lancome mascara obsession, time will tell but if you are looking for a great value, high performance mascara, you can't go wrong with the Exquisite Curl.
I would LOVE to know what you think!
