Review: No7 Exquisite Curl



No7 mascaras have impressed me in the past, however I've not picked up any of their newer ones from the past few seasons as I've been relatively happy with my lower-end drugstore mascaras. This one was sent to me for review.


The newest offering from No7 is their "Exquisite Curl" mascara which claims to coax your lashes "to a more beautifully curved and volumised look, with long lasting curl", sounds good to me! I always used to curl my lashes until my eyelash curlers broke and the replacements just didn't cut it, ever since then I've demanded more from my mascaras; I want them to curl, lengthen, add volume and for all of this to STAY PUT for the whole day... Not much then ;)




The Exquisite Curl wand itself is curved to help curl lashes and has bristles which are quite densely packed, with one side having longer bristles than the other.


Application is easy enough, although I do seem to be having some issues with getting mascara on my eyelid which isn't normally a problem.. I'm putting this down to the brush shape which is a little unusual for me and bound to take a bit of getting used to!


Before...

After....



It definitely lengthens and curls, doesn't add a whole lot of volume but it's pretty rare to get everything in one! I really, really like this mascara and think it's well worth it's current £10 price tag- which is valid until the 23rd of Feb, after that it'll be £13.50 (or £8.50 with the £5 off vouchers that are regularly around). 

No7 also have a competition to win an exquisite pampering weekend including a make-over by none other than Lisa Eldridge! There are also 9 goodie bags to be won every week. For your chance to win all you need to do is upload a wink via picture or video to the No7 facebook page here! You've got until the 15th of February to get your entries in. 

Have you tried No7 mascara's before? Like the look of this one?

I adore this mascara! The more i use it the more i love it! I find it very lengthening and curling. Like you said it's not the most volumising but i don't mind! Great review x

WOW! I totally love this mascara on you. I definately like the look of it. The ward looks a bit like the Maybelline falsies one too, hmmm I wonder how the two would compare to each other.
