Review: Liz Earle Lash Definition Smudgeproof Mascara in Black

When it comes to mascara I buy a new one every 3-6 months for hygiene reasons. I don't want to get a nasty eye infection again. It happened to me before and I spent Christmas 2010 looking very unattractive, with a swollen eye and in tears. Remember ladies - Don't use old mascara!!!
Today I am reviewing the Lash Definition Smudgeproof Mascara from the Liz Earle Colour Collection.
 
Liz Earle Lash Definition Smudgeproof Mascara in Black* 8ml £14.50 link
"Our unique mascara is water-resistant, flake-free and long-lasting, and glides on smoothly to perfectly define each lash. The specially designed brush allows you to make the most of even the shortest lashes, helping to create length and definition. Enriched with natural source vitamin E.
Our multi award-winning Cleanse & Polish Hot Cloth Cleanser gently and swiftly removes all traces of face and eye make up, including our water-resistant mascara. Available in two shades."

This mascara is perfect if you are looking for more volume and length at the same time, without looking unnatural. It gives my lashes nice definition and doesn't go clumpy. I got it in Black, but it is also available in Brown. It stays on my lashes all day, without flaking or smudging and holds the curl quite well. My lashes are very dark and thick naturally, so I only need 2 coats to get the desired volume. I always apply one coat, let it dry and apply another thick coat. This mascara is waterproof and enriched with vitamin E. It is easy to remove with any eye make-up remover but I would recommend Liz Earle Cleanse and Polish - it is very gentle and suitable for sensitive eyes.
