Clean ID Volume & Definition Mascara by Catrice

Price: approx. 5 euros

You can buy the Clean ID Volume & Definition Mascara from Catrice here at Flaconi *

This is what the mascara promises:
The Clean ID Volume & Definition Mascara from Catrice is supposed to color the lashes a deep black, provide volume and separate the individual hairs well from each other when applied. What makes it special: The mascara consists of 90 percent natural ingredients, which can be confirmed using the "CodeCheck" app. Therefore, the product should also be very suitable for sensitive eyes.

Our conclusion:
The Clean ID Volume & Definition Mascara from Catrice is easy to apply. Although the brush is slightly larger than the other mascaras, the ink does not get onto the skin when it is applied, but only grips the eyelashes. We were also impressed by the result: the eyelashes appear dark, long and thicker.

The wearing comfort is great, no irritation or burning sensation in the eyes. It's not a waterproof product, so some mascara residue can settle under the eyes during the day. The removal of make-up is very unproblematic and works both with a lotion and with cleaning wipes. All in all, a good mascara at an affordable price.

L'Oréal Paris Unlimited Very Different Waterproof Mascara

Price: approx. 12 euros

Here you can find the Unlimited Very Different Waterproof Mascara from L'Oréal Paris on Amazon *

This is what the mascara promises:
The Unlimited Very Different Waterproof Mascara from L'Oréal Paris has a snap-off brush, which should make it particularly easy to apply. It should make the eyelashes appear longer and define them. Another bonus: Although it is a waterproof product, lukewarm water should be enough to remove the ink from the eyelashes.

Our conclusion:
Despite the bendable brush, you should have a cotton swab at hand with this ink to remove small blemishes on the lash line. The result is satisfactory. The eyelashes appear longer and are also nicely defined. However, if you want thicker eyelashes, this product is not the best choice.

But there is a big plus point for the good grip. The mascara lasts all day without smudging. Particularly great: Although the product is waterproof, it can be removed easily. The gel-like texture dissolves as soon as it comes into contact with lukewarm water. Very convenient!

L'Oréal Paris Volume Million Lashes Mascara

Price: approx. 14 euros

Here you can order the Volume Million Lashes Mascara from L'Oréal Paris at Flaconi. *

This is what the mascara promises:
The Volume Million Lashes Mascara from L'Oréal Paris has meanwhile established itself as a popular classic. As the name suggests, the product should provide lashes with wow volume and even capture short, fine lashes when applied.

Our conclusion:
L'Oréal Paris mascara is easy to apply. Apply a few tints and your eyelashes get a nice curl. Nevertheless, you should initially be prepared for minor blunders on the lash line, which can happen quickly due to the wide brush.

But what we particularly like about this mascara: The eyelashes do not stick or clump together. The look can also be varied well: If you want a natural result, you only go through your eyelashes once or twice with the brush. For a more dramatic look, just apply a little more ink.

During the day it can happen that the mascara settles a little under the lower lash line. However, you can avoid this quite well with a transparent powder, which you apply sparingly under the lash line. Overall, however, a good product that we can recommend.

They're real! Magnet mascara from Benefit

Price: approx. 29 euros

Here you can find the They're Real! Magnet Mascara from Benefit at Douglas for after-shopping *

This is what the mascara promises:
Real beauty nerds know: The Benefit brand is always coming up with a new highlight for its mascaras. The highlight of the They're Real! Magnet mascara: A magnetically charged core is hidden inside the brush, which is supposed to attract the texture enriched with magnetic minerals and thus extend the lashes extremely.

Our conclusion:
Applying the Benefit mascara takes a little practice at first. Although the narrow brush can be applied very well to the eyelash disease, it does take up a lot of ink. However, if you apply the ink in the recommended zigzag movements, you will avoid the eyelashes from sticking together.

But once you get the hang of it, the result is really impressive: the eyelashes are colored a deep black and are given a great curl even without an eyelash curler. Another plus point: no smudging and no panda eyes. Make-up removal also works without any problems with an eye make-up remover. However, points are deducted for the proud price.

Push Up Lashes! Charlotte Tilbury mascara

Price: approx. 30 euros

Here you can find the Push Up Lashes! Mascara by Charlotte Tilbury in the Sephora online shop *

This is what the mascara promises:
Charlotte Tilbury's mascara is said to be a real all-round talent and promises long-lasting volume, length and a weightless 24-hour lifting effect.

Our conclusion:
The narrow brush of the Push Up Lashes! Similar to the benefit mascara, mascara absorbs a lot of color. Nevertheless, the brush can score: It separates the hairs well, so that there are no unsightly "fly legs" but rather beautiful, long eyelashes. It is also well tolerated. No burning or itching in the eyes.

Unfortunately, the ink is not waterproof and can smear a little during the day. You can avoid this with a little transparent powder, which you simply apply under the lower lash line before ink. This mascara can also be easily removed, for example with a mild lotion or a cleaning foam.

One last important thing: The choice of the right make-up products is always very individual. Only you can judge for yourself whether the tips or products presented work for you. If you have very sensitive skin that is prone to irritation, it may be advisable to see a skin specialist. So you are guaranteed to find the products that suit the needs of your skin.
