Barry M Showgirl Mascara | Review

ABM_1416183469 (1)


I got this mascara as a freebie in Superdrug after I spent a good few pennies on Barry M nail varnishes. I love a mascara that can add emphasis to my big blue eyes so I was excited to try this. My excitement soon turned to impatience when I tried it though 😦

No one really has all the time in the world to do their make up and the problem I had with this mascara was the fact that it took longer than other mascaras to get the “Showgirl” look.Β Don’t get me wrong there are results with this mascara as you can see in the pictures bellow, but it just takes way too long to achieve a desired result! I was impressed with my lashes in the end, they were super long and with the right technique I even got the false lash look πŸ™‚

Another problem I had was the brush, it’s quite thin and the bristles kinda hurt when you are applying it 😦 So if you’re eyes are prone to watering like mine, you’ll end up looking like a panda during the application stage.


I don’t think I’ll be buying another one when it runs outs. I think it would be okay if I wanted to keep my make up minimal but there are cheaper mascaras out there for that. Remember these are my views on this mascara, everyone is different and although I might not like it, this mascara could be your new love!

  1. Argh I hate it when mascaras need lots of coats to make lashes look good, I just haven’t got the time or the patience to sit there applying coat after coat. Apparently 17 at Boots do a really good mascara, im going to try that one out when I’m finished the ones I have at the moment! Have you tried it? xxx


  2. Hmmm I don’t think we will be buying this one! Thanks for the post – it was one mascara we’ve been wanting to try! The end result looks great, but sometimes you just need that one-coat-and-go product xxx
