REVIEW - No7 Extravagant Lashes in Black No1

Hey Peeepzzzz!

The mascara I will be reviewing today is the No7 Extravagant Lashes in black, No1

To start off with! WHAT is this mascara all about? The name? So SO wrong for the product! The only lashes these give you is spider, clumped together, pointy ones!

First of all...

The solution thing, dries way too slowly, so you're sitting waiting for about 10 minutes to put on the next coat and if you don't have time it sucks, especially if you accidentally touch your eye and the product comes off!
Then there's the brush. I shouldn't even allow myself to get started on this, so here is a picture below and you can just see for yourself how thick it is and how short and spread out the bristles are. Which by the way, is never a good combination! (just in my opinion, of course)
P.s I know the mascara solution stuff looks brown, but I assure you, it is definitely black!

When applying this mascara, I found it very hard to reach the roots of my lashes without poking my eye out as the brush design was so thick. I also found it very difficult to get into the corners of my eyes and coat the mascara on the bottom lashes without blobbing a load of product underneath the eye.

After I had applied the first coat, my lashes had all stuck together, so it literally only looked like I had about 5 hairs on them total, which does not look flattering on me. They also didn't lengthen very well, infact, hardly any length at all!

Without further ado, the pictures below are the results of my lashes after applying the mascara.

My eye without any mascara on.

These are my eyelashes after the first coat, and as you can see, they definitely don't look flattering, as they are too spaced out and just look weird and unnatural (not that mascara is natural but I think you catch my drift)

My eyelashes after the second coating didn't really improve. There is definitely not much of a difference from the first coat.

And lastly, the third coating of mascara! Looks better, but still... just no.

So the conclusion? The summary?
Basically, the conclusion is that NO ONE should be buying this mascara! At around about £10 a tube, this is definitely not worth it. It looks spidery, clumpy, thick (in all the wrong reasons) and just overall horrible! 
So unless you're thinking of wearing this mascara for halloween, just don't buy it guys, it will be a shame to see you waste your money on such a poor product!

The only good thing, or more, useful, is if you are wearing fake eyelashes and need to coat your lashes to the fake ones, this mascara would be ideal as it is thick, so it would help your natural lashes blend in with the fake ones, and also it would stick a little better to them.

I hope this review helped you, and have a lovely night :-)
