Review: No.17 Dolled Up Mascara


I purchased this after seeing No 17 retweet a picture of someone wearing it, as their lashes looked amazing. If you've followed my blog for a while you will know that I am extremely faithful to Max Factor when it comes to mascara, but at a fraction of the price, I thought I'd give this a go.



The wand of this mascara is not something I'm very fond of, I prefer thicker wands, but it isn't the worst I've used.


As you can see it gives my lashes a nice length, and it does look quite natural (not this zoomed it) but it didn't blow me away like I was expecting.

I then decided to check it out next to my faithful False Lash Effect:


and realised that 17 was not the one for me.



Don't get me wrong, I don't think this is a bad mascara, I've definitely tried worse, but I won't be re-purchasing it.

Have you tried this? What do you think?

  3. Saw this at boots today when I noticed the logo of the brand printed on the shelf to look a bit different from usual. I'm not a bit fan of 17 products because I dislike their packaging so I haven't really tried many of their products. It's interesting how many different types of mascara the drugstores are bringing out and this one looks so natural! I'm afraid this probably wouldn't do anything for my short stubborn straight lashes! I'm gna stick to my trusty maybelline falsies waterproof :) X x X x

  7. I've tried using No7 mascaras before and they just dried up my eyes to the point where I had to stop wearing eye makeup for months to clear it up. I love Maxfactor mascaras though!
