No7 Lash Adapt Mascara Review!

Its been agggesss since I’ve written a mascara review, but I have come back in full force with a great new mascara to show you.  I am forever on the look out for a mascara that can lengthen my eyelashes, as well as define them and give me volume without making them clumpy.  

No7 have just bought out their new Lash Adapt Mascara; the idea being that you can adapt your lashes from day to night by adding a few more layers.  No7 say that you can layer the mascara up to 6 coats of the mascara without it clumping.

I’ve been trialling it for the past two weeks and here are my results!
Without Mascara: 1 My eyelashes are short and very unimpressive, however I’ve recently discovered the magic that is an eyelash curler which I’m now obsessed with.  In the photographs above I have gently curled my eyelashes.

One Coat: 2 I LOVE how one coat looks on my lashes – it really separates them and defines them, whilst remaining really natural.

Two Coats: 3 Two coats lengthen my lashes, makes them slightly darker and defines them even more.

Three Coats: 4 Three coats is the perfect amount to accompany my dark smokey eyes, still without clumping!

Four Coats: 5 Four coats makes my eyelashes a lot thicker, but without looking too clumpy.   

(I didn’t have time to layer another two coats on, but I will do if any body wants to see? Let me know!)

What I think: This mascara has really surprised me.  Normally I steer clear of fat wands because they leave my lashes resembling spider legs, but the formula of the mascara is so gentle and thin that you can actually layer the coats on without having all your lashes stick together. 
I find this mascara really easy to remove at the end of the day (with cleanser) despite how many layers I’m wearing.  I don’t find that it smudges under my eyes (although to be honest I couldn’t really tell because I wear black eyeliner with it daily anyway) – but it does sometimes transfer just below my eyebrows, but this is easy to wipe off.

This mascara retails at £12.99 at Boots stores and there is an offer on it at the moment – buy it and you receive a free No7 eyeshadow palette.  AND, with the Boots £5 off vouchers you can pick them both up for only £7.99, bargain!
Have you tried this mascara yet? What’s your favourite mascara for non-clumping?

  2. I recently bought this as I was tempted in by the fact it is 'build-able' and the £5 voucher. I really agree with you, I was nicely surprised by this and I have been loving this since I bought it. I will definitely be repurchasing this! x

  8. I just bought this mascara the other day with my £5 off voucher and was so, so impressed by it that I'm now using it every day. I love that you can build it up too. I actually quite like the Smoky Quartz palette you get free with it too - I swatched it on my blog and the colours are all lovely and shimmery, if not totally highly pigmented.
    Anyway nice post :)

  9. Wow, I'm definitely buying this next time I get paid! I use the Rimmel Day 2 Night mascara and it's amazing at creating full lashes, but it's so hard to get off :(

  12. Best non-clumping, lenghtening mascara for me is Maybelline Define-a-lash! It's got a very very bendy silicone brush, which many girls find annoying, but I don't mind at all. It's also kind of hour-glass shaped (thicker on the ends and skinnier in the middle) to get to the corner lashes properly. Therefore it's lenghtening and separating, simply LOVE it!
