My dear readers, at long last the time has come for your second dose of Campus Beauty; or as I like to call it ‘time-to-be-nosy-about-what-makeup-other-people-wear’. This week we bring to you a selection of mascaras which Lancaster students have been loving, ranging in price from a budget friendly £4 to an eye-watering £19.50.
Personally, I’ve always been a drugstore mascara kind of girl, favouring L’oreal’s ‘Telescopic’ and Maybelline’s ‘The Falsies’ mascara. Recently however, the beauty blogosphere has been in a frenzy about high-end brand Santhilea’s £25 ‘Magnetic Lash’ mascara, which may well be making an appearance on my Christmas list.
To the left we have the gorgeous Simonetta who is a 20-year-old Marketing and Psychology student. Her mascara of choice is Max Factor’s ‘2000 Calorie’ variety, because it thickens her lashes and doesn’t tend to clump or smudge throughout the day. I haven’t heard much about this particular mascara before, however with it’s smudge proof claims and at only £4 from Amazon, you can’t really go wrong.
On the right is Olivia, who is a 19-year-old Italian and French student with a love of French Bulldog puppies, summer sun and knitwear. Since trying Benefit’s ‘They’re Real’ mascara, she has become a convert, and puts this down to the wand, which is amazing at lengthening and separating her lashes. This product has won a whole host of awards and claims to be the UK’s bestselling mascara, but is it really worth the £19.50 price tag?
