The Do-It-All Mascara

To me, mascara is one of the most important makeup steps and I’m always on the hunt for the elusive mascara that does it all – I think I’ve finally found the one. CODE Beautiful's VLM mascara is lengthening, volumising and waterproof, and it does not flake in the slightest.

It’s got a dense bristle brush that really grabs onto each lash and builds up the volume and length. It contains conditioning oils, waxes and vitamins including Vitamin B to aid lash regeneration and antioxidant rich Vitamin E; it’s also paraben-free.

Now the way I find this mascara gives the best results is when I use CODE Beautiful’s application technique – Roots, Wriggle, Roll. First I pop the brush as close to the roots as possible. I wiggle the brush back and forth and then I roll the brush from lash root to tip. I really take my time applying this mascara and it gives amazing results. One thing I look for in mascaras is it's ability to hold a curl, and using this application method ensures that my lashes stay curly and gorgeous all day! It’s also very buildable; one coat of mascara gives you a beautiful natural look, but by the time you get to your third or fourth coat you’ve got yourself a set of falsies! If you want to see what it looks like on my lashes then click here

I’d really recommend giving this one a go if you’re in the market for a new mascara. It retails at £19.95 a pop at Harvey Nichols, Harrods, QVC, Feel Unique and Beauty Bay, or of course on CODE Beautiful’s website here.
