Oh Hello! Happy Hump Day.. what better to do half way through the week than a bitta’ Mascara reviewing! I’ve never really done a post like this before, but over the last few weeks I have had 4 different Mascara’s all from different brands land on my door step. So I thought, hey, it would be rude not to! I have reviewed each one individually in a few different categories IE Packaging/Price Point, Results & Negatives and then given them a rating out of 5! I hope you enjoy it – Eye certainly had fun testing them all out! (Sorry I couldn't resist).
KIKO - Fall 2.0 RRP: £12.90
Packaging: The packaging of this product is gorgeous - it feels almost festive with the navy blue and gold and I think it looks expensive in comparison to it's price tag.
Applicator: The applicator is very small and quite thin, it kind of looks like an applicator you would use on your bottom lashes.
Results: At first glace at the applicator as mentioned above, I wasn't too sure how it would apply. I thought that the small brush would be awkward. However I couldn't have been more wrong. The mini brush allows you to get maximum definition with your lashes and picks up every hair. It creates amazing length and volume with just one layer and really coats every single lash. It's so easy to use and because of the size it minimises the chance of you accidentally getting mascara on your eye lid! It's super long lasting and didn't smudge.
Negatives: My only negative with this mascara is that it takes a little longer to apply than usual because of the smaller brush - however it only needs one coat to get the results and this wouldn't stop me picking it up!
Price Point: Slightly higher than KIKO's usual price range, however I feel that this is justified in the beautiful packaging and amazing results!
Rating: 4.5/5 - almost perfect!

Christian Breton - Endless Lash RRP: $22
Packaging: The packaging is sleek and premium/expensive looking. It reminds me of something Dior might have.
Applicator: The applicator is medium sized, fairly thin and rounded.
Results: The results were what I would describe as build-able. The first layer didn't really do a lot more me, however are able to build the mascara up, with-out it clumping to create a bolder look. The wand separates lashes well and the pigmentation is super black.
Negatives: It took me a while to build a coverage I was happy with and even then although my lashes looked longer they didn't look very thickened.
Price Point: I feel like although the packaging feels and looks luxurious it doesn't actually portray this as much in the results.
Rating: 3/5 - It's okay - it does the job but I would choose others over it.

Laura Geller - DramaLash Maximum Volume RRP: £19
Packaging: The packaging of this mascara doesn't particularly blow me away. I think although it looks quite sleek and the black packaging will stop it getting marked, I just feel like it looks a little cheap in comparison to the price point.
Applicator: The applicator is thick and chunky.
Results: This mascara kind of reminds me of one of those fibre mascara's. It really clings on to your lashes and accentuates them. It gave good volume and length, It dried quickly and the curl and thickness lasted all day with-out smudging.
Negatives: The thick packaging tube makes it a little awkward to hold the applicator and because of the chunky applicator it is easy to get mascara around the eye area.
Price Point: Slightly overpriced for the quality of the mascara, however the results are good which is obviously more important than the look,.
Rating: 4/5 - I liked it but I'm not in love with it.

Urban Decay - Troublemaker RRP £19.50
Packaging: This has to be my favourite packaging out of all the mascaras. I always think that UD go above & beyond on packaging and this oil slick design is no exception! It's simply beautiful to look at.
Applicator: The applicator is like nothing I've ever seen before! It's almost "spiky" looking.. which I know sounds weird but it basically has different length bristles coming off it.
Results: The results from this mascara as phenomenal - in just one super quick and easy coat it separates my lashes which adding so much volume and length. It feels like it adds a lot of product to the lashes, but even when you do another layer is still doesn't clump. You almost feel like it is brushing through your lashes, extending them and de-tangling as it goes!
Negatives: The only negatives I can give about this mascara is that it isn't the easiest mascara to remove at the end of the day (which I guess is a good sign really) and that after going to the gym it did leave some slight marks on my eyelid.
Price Point: This is about right for UD's price point - more expensive than a high-street price however I feel like it's worth it.
Rating: 4.5/5 - I Love IT!

I knew my indecisive side would come out somewhere.. you can't beat them all! Yes I have 2 winners, just because I simply cannot decide between them! The KIKO Fall 2.0 Mascara is great when you want those PERFECT lashes that you are happy to spend a bit of time perfectly with the wand. TheUrban Decay Troublemaker is great for a quick application for full, thick and almost false effect lashes. I would highly recommend adding BOTH to your Christmas list!
Have you tried any of the Mascara's I have reviewed? If so what are your thoughts?! Georgie xo
