MUA Lash Boom

Hi Beauts.

When it comes to mascara, I'm so picky. I like it all: length, volume and separation, and I think it's very rare to find a mascara that lives up to all three. MUA are one of my favourite brands for many reasons; they're inexpensive, great quality and they're cruelty free.
 Quite a while back now, they released a mascara called 'Lash boom' and for some reason I didn't buy it (I usually grab their new releases as soon as they hit the shelves) However, the time came to chuck my old mascara out and buy a new one, so I figured why not give this one a go? 

If I'm honest, the first thing that attracted me to this was the wand. There's a sticker on the on the lid with a small picture of what the wand looks like. Now I'm not usually one for plastic or spiky looking bristles because I'm very likely to poke my eyeballs out with it, but this one intrigued me. 
The Lash Boom wand is kind of like two wands in one. It has a ball like half and a slimmer half, which I found so much better than the usual mascara wands. 

The slimmer end allowed me to apply an even amount of mascara to each lash and was easier to use along my bottom lashes. The rounder end allowed me to apply more product to the outer corners and added a little extra volume. I think I've mentioned in a mascara review before that I usually find mascaras too wet when I first open them, so I like to leave them for a week or so. On first application I found the consistency of this to be perfect, not too watery and not at all dry. 
Now, does this live up to my high hopes and give me length, separation and volume? It sure does! Even after only one coat I can see a big difference, after two I'm ready to take off. 

There is only one very small issue I have with this, and that is removing it. It isn't as tough to take off as some mascaras I've used in the past, but it's a bit of a pain. I have to use soap to get the majority off and then use a make up remover to remove the last little bit. However, because it's such a great mascara I'll let it slide.

This retails for £3.00 and is available from Superdrug, and MUA online.

Have you tried any of MUA's mascaras?
