Top 3 Mascaras

I love mascara and if I didn't use it daily then my eyelashes would look non-existant. I find it hard to make my eyelashes look remotely long and a couple of years ago I relied on false eyelashes. After the glue had ripped out near enough all of my eyelashes I thought it would be best to put down the eyelashes and opt for mascara.
I've never been able to find a 'perfect' mascara, however I do have a few mascaras that are close enough to being perfect. I like mascaras that have multiple purposes, for example, lengthen, separate and volumise.

Here are my Top 3 Mascaras, in order of most favourite to least favourite:
1.) MAC Zoom Lash
2.) MAC Haute & Naughty Lash
3.) Urban Decay Waterproof Big Fatty Masacra

So let's start off with my favourite mascara, MAC Zoom Lash. This mascara retails at £13.50 and can be purchased from any MAC counter or free standing MAC store. As far as I know, this mascara is only available in black.

This mascara is amazing, not only does it separate your lashes perfectly, it also does a brilliant job of lengthening your lashes.
I also find that the wand is a perfect size, there's nothing worse than using a mascara that has a brush the size of a bumble bee, it's like attacking your eyes with a nasty thing! The wand is great, it's not too big, it's long enough to coat all of your eyelashes and the bristles are nicely spaced out meaning your eyelashes can freely move through the bristles.

My other favourite mascara has to be MAC Haute & Naughty Lash. This mascara has 2 mascara wands, yes 2! :D The wand with the pink handle is designed for lengthening your lashes and the wand with the purple glittery handle is designed for volumising your lashes. This mascara retails at £17.50 and can be purchased from any MAC counter or any free standing MAC store.

The lengthening brush:

The volumising brush:

I absolutely love the concept of this mascara, it's great how it gives you the option of having both natural or deep and dramatic eyelashes. 
When using this mascara I first lengthen my eyelashes using the pink wand and then use the purple wand to create maximum volume. 

Last but not least is my Urban Decay Waterproof Big Fatty Mascara. This mascara comes in 2 sorts, waterproof and non-waterproof. It retails at £15.00 and can be purchased from Debenhams.

This mascara is amazing for giving your lashes uber volume, my lashes look so much fuller and thicker when using this lovely mascara.
The only little teeny weeny problem with this mascara is that the brush is quite big so if you like small headed brushes then this probably isn't for you. However, the tip of the brush is fab for using on smaller lashes.

The low down...
MAC Zoom Lash:
-Great for separating lashes and also lengthening lashes.
-Small, long brush.
-Relatively inexpensive.

MAC Haute & Naughty Lash:
-Great for volumising lashes and also lengthening lashes.
-The brush heads are a nice size.
-A little expensive but then again you're in effect getting 2 mascaras.

Urban Decay Waterproof Big Fatty Mascara:
-Great for volumising lashes.
-Quite a large brush.
-It's a little more expensive than other high end mascaras.
