As described by Maybelline, the product promises to ‘volumise and define the look of longer lashes’, creating layers that can be built without clumping, and judging by the endless rave reviews it has received, it certainly delivers.

The mascara, which is usually priced at £8.99 but is currently on sale, has a low wax formula that can be built up layer upon layer, without any fear of clumps or crunchiness. It is even said to be great at capturing tiny inner lashes you didn’t know you had. Talk about great value for money, eh?
