I have always had a hate-hate relationship with mascara. It clogs, it's a pain to take off, it runs and it smears on me. So I just don't wear it. But wandering through the spectacular exhibition of all things Audrey at Christie's this week I got to thinking about her extraordinary allure, and especially those eyes. I decided to find a mascara I can at least have a love-hate relationship with. I tried an array of products and my fave is one called It's a Long Story Mascara made by Arbonne. Just the name is enough to make you smile. Added to which it is light enough not to feel heavy and glides on with no clumps, but has a dramatic effect on your lashes, giving them an instant Audrey effect. It also comes off easily with a good eye make-up remover (I tend to use Clarins Gentle Eye Make-Up Remover).
VALUE FOR MONEY: 3/5
