Getting Doll'd Up with Seventeen Mascara...

Happy Sunday lovely readers! Finding you all good & well I hope? Must say its mucho nice to finally be seeing some beautiful bright rays & blue skies! I'd almost forgotten what it felt like & ventured outdoors like a hermit who has been deprived of sunlight for months! Lets just hope it sticks around for a while ;)

Whilst popping in to Boots the other day for an emergency chocolate purchase, I decided to make use of a voucher I had offering £2 off the latest mascara from make-up brand Seventeen, Doll'd Up. It seems absolutely impossible for me to enter this place without leaving with an item of make-up in some form! But it was too good to pass up on so off I happily went with my new mascara & not forgetting the chocolate bar of course...

I've used one other mascara from Seventeen which didn't really do much for me if I'm honest but I was willing to give this latest offering a try. I absolutely love the cutesy red & black packaging of the new Doll'd Up Mascara & I’m a total sucker for prettily packaged makeups ;)




Of course an important aspect of every mascara is the brush & the Doll'd Up comes with a curve shaped wand designed to curl & add volume to the lashes, to help create a doll like bright eyed look.




So lets put it to the test shall we? Here's a before pick of my mascara-less eyelashes, I haven't shown it here but I also just quickly curled them with the eyelash curler before applying the mascara. This helps curve them with the wand a lot better :)




After curling I then applied two thin coats of the Doll'd Up, first brushing the top of the lashes before going under & upwards using the curved brush which definitely helps lift & separate the lashes nicely without clumping.




Hello wide awake eyes! Overall I love the finished effect this mascara gives, I'm not a huge fan of thick heavy coats on my eyelashes, preferring a more subtle look for daytime & this is perfick! Granted there's not an immense amount of volume, yet it curls & fans out the lashes nicely & no clumps! Plus you can always build it up for more volumising action :)

Seventeen's Doll'd Up Mascara is available to purchase from Boots & retails for &6.29, not bad at all! Have you tried this? What's your favourite mascara? Thanks for stopping by!



Lotsa love to ya!

  1. Major eyelash envy going on here!

    Remember the ladies in Space NK were obsessed over your eyelashes? Ha! MA!

    I detest one of the Seventeen mascaras! I tried their false lash one, the one in the pink tube? Did FOOK ALL for me! ;(

    This however, does look a lot better. :)
