Waterproof Mascara - No7 Intense Volume

Every summer I have to pack away/bin my mascaras and go on the hunt for a great waterproof version as I suffer quite badly from hay-fever. I chose this waterproof mascara having read on the tube that it promises 'fantastic volume with perfect separation and curl for lusher lashes.'

Apparently this is the replacement mascara for No7's Ultimate Waterproof Mascara however I cannot tell you how it fares in comparison to the original version as I haven't tried it.

Intense Volume Waterproof Mascara

I am using Intense Volume in Black 01

As always on BeautySwot here are the before and after pics -

I actually find this mascara to be lengthening as opposed to providing volume which I think you can see from the pics above. It doesn't clump, separates nicely and provides spidery style long lashes but having tried lots of mascaras I know that I personally prefer thicker looking lashes.

As a waterproof mascara it performs well if my eyes are watering or I am sneezing but if I rub my eyes (due to the itchy eyes) I do end up with smudges so I would say it is not the best waterproof mascara I have ever used. This accolade currently is awarded to Rimmel's 100% Waterproof Mascara.

I have never really been impressed by No7 mascaras. I have always been left disappointed by the results particularly as they are not that cheap, however for a waterproof mascara it is quite a nice mascara as a lot I have tried have left my eyelashes looking a bit flat.

Would I repurchase ?- No I don't think I would.

No7 Intense Volume Waterproof Mascara costs £11.50 and is available from Boots
