Holy Grail Of All Mascaras

If you have read some of my previous posts or follow me on Twitter, you will probably already know i have been searching for a mascara that doesn't flake.
It doesn't matter what mascara i used, i would have black flakes under my eyes. My friends would always be like "Imogen you've got something black on your face", i would wipe it off and it would then smudge in a long line!!! I was always quite self conscious about it, you know how annoying it is when your talking to someone and not until the end of the conversion you realise you have something on your face or in my case loads of little black flakes. You may be thinking that i wear too much mascara that's why it's flaking, but that's not the case. I wear false eyelashes a lot so i don't need to cake on the mascara, i just think there are so many out there that are rubbish, smudgy and flaky! Anyway, i will get to the point....

I have FINALLY found a mascara that doesn't flake or smudge! And that mascara is:
*Estee Lauder Double Wear*
When applied it does makes your lashes look longer and thicker, it doesn't make them look WOW but it does the job and the fact it doesn't flake it's a winner for me. I have been using it for about 2 weeks now and the results are great, i wear it all day and sometimes i play with my lashes and even then i hardly flakes at all, whereas most mascaras would be all over your face!

If you have the same problem as me then i would highly recommend this mascara.

What Estee Lauder say:
15-hour staying power.
Lashes that last.
Zero smudge.
Extreme wear. Extraordinary length. Unstoppable power-now the smudge-free lash look you see in the morning is the look you keep all day
Lash-Xtender™ Brush elongates, separates and surrounds each lash in glossy, intensified colour.

RRP: £18



  1. Sounds great - I have heard a few other good reviews on this mascara. This might just be my next mascara! x

  2. Thank you for sharing this with us. Sounds very promising.
    I'm a fan of Helena Rubinsteins Lashqueen, but this one seems to be great aswell. Will definitely try it.

    Much love,

  3. I'm always looking for the perfect mascara, might have to try this. Liking the new Max Factor one at the moment very defining and lengthening. No clumps , yay! I have just done a Lipstick Valentine tag on my blog, if you want to join in. That would be fab, i'd love to know what your lipstick love (or lust) is right now!

  4. o0o0o good tip. I love my Covergirl Lashblast Mascara but dang it, it flakes and I hate it!!! I might have to go out and try this. I guess you get what you pay for huh. :) Check out my blog :)

  5. Estee Lauder was a surprise for me too when I discovered how good it was! Always had considered it an oldie brand! I've tried Double Wear mascara and then moved on to Sumptuous. That's my favourite now!

  6. I have never used this, but I am completely in love with the Sumptuous volume mascara from Estee Lauder! It lengthens, gives me volume and I have no clumps! The volume is amazing!! :)

  7. Thanks for sharing hun(:
    I love your blog!

  8. It's wierd that on some girls same mascara flakes and on others doesn't. E.g. this one - doesn't work for me, though almost every other does lol The best mascara for me is Maybelline Collosal. It's ah-mazing.
