17 Peep Show Mascara Review

If you read my review on 17 Va Va Voom mascara then you would have seen that I really liked it and because they worked out at £2 each I also bought two others from the range. One of these is Peep Show and I've been using it for about a month now. 
The packaging's so pretty!
After really liking Va Va Voom I have to be honest I was a little bit disappointed with Peep Show. With the promise of lengthening fibres which you would usually find in more expensive mascaras, I was quite interested to see the results. I'd seen a really expensive mascara and base coat with these types of fibres on QVC and the results looked amazing. 
The first time I used it I was impressed, I could see the fibres and how they were kind of attaching to my lashes. I found though that the more I've used it the less I've liked it. I'm not a fan of having a lot of claggy mascara on the wand and that happens a lot with this, normally I'd wipe it off against the top of the tube, but that just isn't possible with this because of the nature of the mascara. 
I also find that more often than not my mascara is ending up looking clumpy; the fibres are okay if they attach to the end of your lashes but if they hang around elsewhere they get in the way and join your lashes up. Perhaps you really need some kind of lash base to get the full effect from it. 

Some days I think this mascara looks good, but it's still not as good as others I've tried from the same range. In my opinion it's very hit and miss and I won't be bothering to repurchase.

Have you tried this one or any with lengthening fibres?

  1. I hate getting my hopes up with a mascara and then it's rubbish... I tend to use BeneFit Bad Girl at the minute x
