Three or four years ago I fell in love with this mascara, and even mentioned it in my Favourites of 2011 video. On using it up I moved onto trying out other mascara – I’m fickle like that… – but when I went to repurchase this one I couldn’t find it! Over the past few years I have kept my eyes open for it but hadn’t seen it anywhere, not really sure why, but when I was in Boots the other week looking at nude Maybelline lipsticks I noticed there was a 3 for 2 offer on the brand. As I was browsing the other products picking out my “freebie” whaddya know, there was the One By One mascara, so of course I grabbed it!
It really is a great everyday mascara, although I didn’t think so the first time I applied it. Don’t get me wrong, it didn’t apply horribly, it just seemed ok and I was a little disappointed that my once very much loved favourite mascara wasn’t living up to my expectations.
However, when I came to remove my makeup that night I noticed that my lashes looked lovely. This mascara applies easily and evenly, fanning out your lashes with it’s oval shaped wand, but it’s when it has dried on your lashes that it really stands out. It seems to curl the lashes even more once it has set, and despite being classified as a volumising mascara it also adds a bit of length too whilst providing natural looking, clump-free volume.
All in all this is a lovely mascara that ticks all 3 boxes when it comes to how you want your lashes to look. Also, it’s easy to apply with it’s plastic bristled wand, can be layered to give extra volume without going clumpy, flaky or smudging all over your eye, and is readily available at Superdrug for a reasonable £8.49 (it doesn’t seem to be on the Boots website..)
What more could you ask for?!
