Great Budget Mascara

Mascara truly is my dessert island product: I started wearing this when I was 12 and haven’t stopped. It is the only beauty product I wear to the gym and on the rare days where I forgot t apply it I feel strange.

Catrice All Round Mascara Waterproof

Since I think a good mascara makes all the difference, I don’t mind paying for it and I usually end up with mid range or high end mascara. Still, my curiosity got the better of me and I picked up a budget mascara by Catrice. At a mere €2,99, this is certainly a bargain, but how does it perform?

Catrice All Round Mascara WaterproofI went with the All Round Mascara in waterproof black. Catrice claims this will give you extra volume, length and curl: the holy trinity of lashes.

The mascara has a nice big brush and I have to say it really has surprised me! For such a low price, this does an excellent job. It does elongate and curl the lashes, but it isn’t the most voluminous mascara I have ever tried. This produces great fluttery lashes perfect for every day.

The only minor downside is the slight smudging. I have to admit I do rub my eyes quite a bit, so this depends a lot on your personal habits.

For this price, Catrice has produced an excellent product. Certainly worth giving this a go if you are looking to try something new or want to save some money!


Als ik maar een product mocht kiezen om mee te nemen naar een verlaten eiland, dan zou ik gaan voor mascara. Ik draag het al sinds mijn twaalfde en dit is het enige dat ik opdoe om te gaan sporten. Op de zeldzame dagen dat ik mijn mascara vergeet, voel ik me echt raar.

Omdat een goede mascara voor mij echt verschil maakt, vind ik het niet zo erg om er iets meer voor neer te leggen. Ik kies daarom meestal voor duurdere drogisterij of luxe parfumerie merken. Toch was ik erg nieuwsgierig naar het goedkopere segment en ik koos voor een budget mascara van Catrice. Voor slechts €2,99 is het echt een koopje, maar is het ook wat?

Ik koos voor de All Round Mascara in waterproof black. Catrice claimt dat dit je extra volume, lengte en krul zal geven: de drie-eenheid van wimpers.

De mascara heeft een fijne grote borstel en ik ben erg echt door verrast! Voor zo’n lage prijs is dit echt een super product. Het  verlengt en krult je wimpers mooi, maar het is niet de meest volumieuze mascara die ik ook geprobeerd heb. Dit geeft je mooie wimpers voor elke dag.

Het enige kleine nadeeltje dat ik kon vinden is dat het een klein beetje vlekt. Ik wrijf nogal eens in mijn ogen, dus of je hier last van zult hebben ligt echt aan je eigen gewoontes.

Voor deze prijs heeft Catrice echt een excellente mascara gemaakt. Zeker de moeite waard als je eens iets nieuws wilt proberen of wat geld wild besparen!

    Wow, for such a cheap product I think that it must be worth the money! I wish that the brand was out here in the UK though 😀

      It is! I heard you don’t have it yet, very strange as it is a big brand here. Hopefully they’ll expand soon 🙂

      It is a great brand, I am not sure it has made it out of mainland europe yet (I think it is orignally german?). Do you have it anywhere near you?

    I don’t think we have Catrice in the states, but it looks good on you! I definitely need a waterproof mascara myself – any recs for a cheap version? I normally shy away from buying cheap mascara because you can’t test it like you can at Sephora or a department store, but I guess it wouldn’t break the bank to buy a handful and try them out, eh? 😉

      Hmm define cheap?! I really like Max Factor and Loreal normally, both brands that are a lot cheaper in the States and often on sale. Maybelline is also great, but some of those irritate my sensitive eyes. Do you have sensitivity issues?

        I don’t think I do. Thanks, all three of these brands would fit the bill! Dior is my go-to, but it would be nice to have a cheaper backup 😉

    Great Inexpensive mascaras are the best since they have such short life span! I don’t have access to Catrice but I definitely want to try Essence ones.
