New Favourite Mascara - Bargain!! :)

I am on a constant quest for the best mascara ever. I have quite long, naturally curly eyelashes but I only have about three of them haha. So I look for a thickening mascara, which obviously still adds a bit of length, too much tho and I look like I have spiders legs on my eyelids - not a good look.

I've tried all the 'favourites' - Lancome Hypnose, Dior Diorshow, Benefit BadGal - I liked them all but I didn't LOVE them. I currently use Urban Decay Super Curl which was a surprise hit for me as I got it as a wee trial size thrown in when I bought some other UD goodies. It gives me a nice, natural look for day-to-day wear.

Here are my natural eyelashes:
Top pics are without any makeup, bottom pics are with all other eye makeup.

So although I was pretty happy with my current mascara, I always crave a bit more!!

And More! Magazine provided this. :) I am part of the More! Beauty Hot 100, where we give suggestions/feedback to the magazine about products, are given the opportunity to contribute to the magazine, win goodie bags (like I won HERE!) and also test and review new products. They recently sent us 17 Peep Show to try and I was quite sceptical, as I tend to go for high end mascara.

How cute is the packaging??

I actually really like this mascara!! What do you think?


It goes on nice and evenly, with no clumping, even after a few coats. I wore it for a full day and had no smudging either. Although I was sent this mascara to trial, you can buy it in Boots or online for £6.29.

Have you ever tried 17 mascaras? What's your favourite mascara ever?
Let me know!

  1. I tried this mascara when I first noticed it in Boots. Drawn in by the cute packaging, as usual. However I found there was a lot of fallout (?) after a few hours. Little black bits on my cheeks that I've never had with a mascara before.

    That being said, I know many people who love this mascara. It's a great price just doesn't work for me, unfortunately.

    P.S. I want your eyelashes! xx

  4. My fave mascara is the Tarte Lights Camera Lashes. I have a big problem with mascaras itching my eyes and bothering my contacts but the Tarte ones don't do that.

    1. Thank you! Yeah, I have quite long lashes but as you can see in the front facing pics, I have so few of them! And they're blonde-tipped. This mascara is jet black, which is great. :)

    1. Thank you so much!! :)

      I own practically no 17 make up, but I love their primer and now I love this so it's maybe time I start investing in some more!

      Yeah, I had a blast in London and it was so lovely to see my sister and bestie again. :)
