No7 Lash Adapt Mascara: Review

Right, I’m back from holiday and getting back into the swing of blogging with a review of the latest mascara from No7.
I have to be honest, I didn’t have high hopes for this mascara when I first heard about it – it’s main selling point being that you can add coat after coat (apparently up to 6 coats) without it clumping, so it’s meant to be the ideal day-to-nighttime mascara, to add a bit of extra drama without having to re-do a full face of make-up. But in the past I have found some No7 mascaras to be a bit hit and miss.
But, as you can probably predict – when I did try this out,  I decided it’s a hit. I applied a total of 6 coats (in relatively quick succession, rather than wearing all day and then re-applying again) and the effect did just get increasingly more dramatic. But of course rather than me just waffling on, here are the pics to show you.
No mascara

One coat – not bad, a nice natural effect.

Two/Three coats – pretty impressive already.

Four coats (and now on bottom lashes too) – getting pretty dramatic.

Finally, a whopping 6 coats. Pretty dramatic.

I like it – the wand is my preferred brush, rather than comb style so is easy to use and get really far into the lashes so they are coated root to tip. I find it harder to do that with comb wands… plus the brush style means there isn’t too much formula on the wand to apply, so it does prevent clumps.

I think three to four coats would be enough for me on a daily basis, the 6 is dramatic but slightly getting too close to tarantula territory for my day to day look – although I could me tempted to go for the full 6 for a night out.

What do you think of No7 mascaras in general??? Like the look of this one?

No7 Lash Adapt Mascara is available now from Boots (full price £12.50 – but the lovely £5 discount vouchers are floating around so can be picked up for £7.50…)

    I think it looks fabulous. I intend to give it a try if we have it in the US. Our Target has some of the line, but not all of it.
