Boots currently have a new mascara out as part of their Seventeen range called Doll'd Up. At present if you buy this mascara you get a free gift of a Boots 17 Doll'd Up 3 Way Eyeliner.
Well as I love a free gift and I was in the market for a new mascara I thought I'd give it a go. The mascara costs £5.29 or 529 Advantage points and can be picked up in your local Boots or online here.
The mascara itself is lovely. It claims to give "up to 24hr curl and wide-eyed volume for doll like eyes". As far as I have noticed it does not give any curl and gives minimal volume but it does give beautiful length and I find it quite natural looking which is what I'm after in a mascara. Perhaps if I applied loads of layers I would get the volume benefit but I hate the look of mascara that is applied with a heavy hand.
The eyeliner pen is amazing. It comes in black and has a 3 way nib which can be used to achieve various looks from a fine line to a bold line or anything inbetween.
It applies as a very dark black and gives amazing definition. It also has ridiculously brilliant staying power. I have worn this for 24 hours and it hasn't budged, looking as fresh after 24 hours as it did when first applied, even if I didn't! It can even survive a good old eye rub as can the mascara. I inadvertently forgot that I had eye makeup on and began rubbing my tired eyes. I hastily stopped but not before one eye had had a good rub. I didn't have any tell tale black marks and was totally amazed as when I do this there are usually some signs of eye makeup carnage afterwards.
I'm not sure if this eyeliner can be purchased on its own but it's definitely worth picking up the mascara while the free eyeliner pen offer is still on. Great value and great performance. What more can a girl ask for?
