We recently bought you a list of our top mascaras for under £10, but since then, we've stumbled across a gem that comes in under the £5 mark! Collection Volumising Mascara is a brilliant bargain that impressed us immediately. It's a far cry from the original Collection (2000, as it was then) mascaras that came free with the teen magazines of our youth. This has more in common with products that cost three or four times as much, with a plastic bristle brush that allows for easy, clump-free application of the heavily pigmented product. As it's volumising, the focus is on full, fat lashes, rather than loads of extra length, but it does lengthen considerably, too. What it lacks in sophistication (in a big pink plastic tube with a chunky brush) it makes up for in lasting power and buildability. What you don't get is the softness and flexibility of some more expensive formulas, but for truly voluminous lashes, you need a more solid hold. It lasts all day and comes off easily with makeup remover, never bringing your actual lashes with it. If you're on a tight budget, or if you're caught out without your makeup and need a quick fix, this is definitely worth trying out!
