Ask the personal beauty consultant: The best mascaras for 2018


If there is one makeup item that many of us couldn’t live without it’s mascara. So what one is the best for you? Jarrold Personal Beauty Consultant Paris Cressy and Beauty Manager Georgia Vatter pick their favourites.

Whatever the season, when it comes to makeup, lashes are always high on the beauty agenda. In fact if you could only take one item from your makeup bag with you to a desert island, a good mascara that will define your eyes, make you look well-groomed and more awake would probably be your item of choice.

So what mascara is right for you? Here are Paris’ and Georgia’s top picks.





My top 3 mascaras by Jarrold Personal Beauty Consultant Paris Cressy:

MAC In Extreme Dimension 3D Black Lash Mascara


Paris says: "If you want your lashes to look dramatic this is the mascara for you. The formula gives your lashes curl and length so that you can really create a full lash look. One of the best things about this mascara is the brush, which has small end to enable you to cover the smaller lashes in the corner of your eye. It’s also a great mascara if you wear contact lenses as it never smudges."


Dior DiorShow Iconic Overcurl Mascara


Paris says: "The incurved brush that comes with this mascara helps define and separate lashes for a more classic look. You can also build up this mascara if you want a more dramatic look for the evening making it an ideal mascara to take you from day to night."

Charlotte Tilbury Full Fat Lashes Mascara


Paris says: "It’s a mascara that is a celebrity favourite and if you want a mascara that curls, separates, defines and is buildable this is the only product you need. If you want to get your lashes looking like a Hollywood starlet, this mascara is awesome at giving your lashes that fanned out effect."






My top 3 mascaras by Jarrold Beauty Manager Georgia Vatter:

MAC Upward Lash Mascara


Georgia says: "This is my absolute fave mascara of all time! The MAC Upward Lash never ceases to impress me with how it can create super extreme lashes. The high tech brush, which looks a bit bizarre, ensures that you apply the perfect amount of product to your lashes and glides through your lashes easily to give a dramatic wide-eyed look."


Benefit BADgal BANG Mascara


Georgia says: "This is the newest mascara on the list, but it has already left a big impression with the Jarrold beauty team and our customers alike. The innovative formula lifts and lengthens lashes, and will give a dramatic look to your lashes. Perfect for when you are hitting the town for a night out."


Clinique Lash Power Mascara


Georgia says: "This is my go to day mascara mainly because it lasts for 24 hours so you don’t have to worry about getting panda eyes. The teeny, tiny brush enables you to build up your lashes, but the formula doesn’t feel heavy and instead gives your lashes a soft, fluttery, natural look."
