Tried & tested: Mascara

By Milly Nolan

Luscious, long lashes are on every woman’s wish list. Our Beauty Editor, Milly Nolan, tests seven
 of the latest mascaras 
on the market, MiNDFOOD reports.


The Colossal Volum’ Express Mascara, RRP $23

I don’t know what Maybelline’s secret is, but it gets its mascara right every time. Packed with collagen and thickening 
agents, this mascara seems to create lashes out of nowhere. 
The result is full, voluptuous 
and intensely black lashes.


Exceptionnel de Chanel, RRP $62

Featuring Chanel’s signature sleek black packaging, this volumising mascara is equally sleek to apply. The wand lifts and curls the lashes, adding length and definition without any clumping, even after applying several layers. Thanks to the rich black formula, my lashes were left looking gloriously glossy and dramatic. A must for evenings out or special events.


Lash Define Mascara, RRP $23

This mascara’s flexible rubber brush allows precise application as it combs and separates each lash, resulting in well-defined and lengthened lashes. One swift sweep gives a natural look, or add a few more layers to create (clump-free) drama. The result: full and intensely black lashes.


Perfect Mascara, RRP $50

The crimped brush helps to lift and elongate lashes for a defined yet natural look. Enriched with vitamin B5, the formula (available in black and brown) is gentle on lashes yet is resistant to tears, perspiration or rain for a smudge-free and long-lasting finish. It’s the ideal office-to-party mascara.


Wonder Volume Mascara, RRP $51

Available in black and this season’s hottest hue – blue – this lash-volumising mascara instantly thickens lashes and coats them with intense colour. Lashes remain defined and clump-free throughout the day. Dermatologist and ophthalmologist tested, the formula is also gentle on your eyes.


Perfectly Defined Mascara, RRP $55

The name of this mascara describes precisely what it achieves: perfectly defined lashes. The multi-comb brush helps 
to lengthen, separate and curl 
lashes in just a few sweeps. 
The result is natural-looking lashes minus any flaking. It’s the perfect mascara to wear at work.


Zoom Fast Black Lash, RRP $28

Made from carbon black pigment, this mascara coats lashes in 
a deep, rich black formula that creates instant drama, volume and length. Rather than creating a natural look, this mascara instantly draws attention to your eyes, so it’s best worn when seeking to impress.
