The Balm Cheater Mascara

I'm not a massive make up wearer. Apart from my signature liquid black eye liner/mascara, and a natural coloured lip stick, I don't tend to wear a lot, especially during the day.

I got this amazing mascara from Find Me a Gift though and absolutely love it. Mascara is one of my daily essentials, and this one came at the most perfect time, as my usual mascara finished the day before, so I was looking for a new one.


The brand is The Balm, and they do some pretty cool make up, with great retro/vintage packaging. The Mascara, titled Cheater, is a great little product to have, and I'll definitely be checking out more from The Balm as well.

It works really well with my eye lashes, and really adds volume to them. I did try taking pictures of my eyes with the mascara on, but I think we all know how hard it is to photograph your own eye! But it really does do the trick and makes my eyes look fabulous!

At £14.99, it's not bad value for money. I usually don't spent too much on mascara's and hardly ever for than £10, but I think this one is actually worth it, and I would definitely re-buy. I have a ridiculous theory that, because of my permanent fringe on the left side of my face, my eye lashes are pretty flattened. I'm convinced of this, and so, very few mascara's tend to 'work' on my left eye, but this one is perfect.
It also lasted all day (come rain, come shine) and was surprisingly easy to take off: no eye scrubbing was involved!!

Have you tried make up from The Balm, over at Find Me A Gift? What mascara do you use?

I use mostly Maybelline mascaras. I haven't been disappointed by them :)

I´m not a mascara wearer either but sometimes I use this Yves Rocher brand which is quite okay.

I have never heard of this brand before but I will definitely bear it in mind! I love Max Factor mascaras, I have never been disappointed with them...
