MUA Extreme Lash Mascara

I have been obbsessed with shopping recently and especially the MUA counter at Superdrug. I think soon I'll have nearly all of their products! I recently picked up one of their Mascaras - Extreme Lash Mascara to see whether I prefer it to my trusty Bourjois Volumizer Mascara.

The packaging is really sleek and simple which I love. I'm not a fan of really bold out there colours and pictures for packaging. But I find that in general, MUA's products have a really professional feel about them.
 These are my natural eyelashes without any coats of Mascara. I don't have the worst set of eyelashes ever, yet I don't feel comfortable to go out without Mascara.

 The Extreme Lash Mascara instantly adds length to my eyelashes and makes them alot more visable. I'm the type of person that likes long, dark, thick lashes without having to wear false lashes. Don't get me wrong I love false lashes but I prefer to wear them in the evenings when I'm going out rather than during the day. So this is why I wear a few coats of Mascara.

The second coat of Mascara adds a lot more definition and makes them slightly thicker than the first coat, but this still isn't thick enough for me. I also found that the wand doesn't comb through my eyelashes well. So where 2 or 3 eyelashes stick together it makes me look as if I have less, and this isn't really a look which I want. I also found that this Mascara is a lot more watery than my Bourjois Mascara which doesn't make for a quick and easy make up routine in the mornings as I then have to spend time faffing about with cotton buds to remove the Mascara from my eyelid and sometimes it smudges and becomes really tricky to remove. I think for the time being I'm going to stick to my Bourjois Volumizer Mascara and will take the MUA Extreme Lash Mascara with me on nights out for touch ups as I can be very precious about my make up and would hate to loose it in a club. Unfortunately, I think this will be one MUA product which I won't be repurchasing.

Have you tried this Mascara? What do you think?


  1. I wasnt a fan of this mascara either! :( xx

    1. I found it to be really messy for my liking!! xo

  2. Your lashes look really long, but it does look like you have few really big lashes! What a shame, I love MUA eyeshadows but might give this a miss x
