For most people, mascara is the one beauty item they just can't live without. It has the ability to make even the sleepiest of people (I blame binge-watching Love Is Blind all night) look wide-awake and ready for the day ahead in an instant.
With so many different types of mascaras out there, it's difficult to know where to start. You've got to find your perfect formula (Long-wearing? Flake-free? Nonclumpy?) and perfect wand (Dual-sided? Dense bristles? Curved edges?), then find a mascara that perfectly marries the two together. No easy feat. But once you do find "the one", it truly is a beautiful, long-lasting companionship — and no, I'm not being dramatic.
A great mascara also doesn't need to break the bank. There are plenty of gems hidden in your local high street, with prices starting at just £4. So, to take the hassle out of having to read endless reviews and wasting money on formulas that just don't work for you, I rounded up 12 of the very best mascaras you'll find in your local Boots or Superdrug.
