Love at first blink: Seventeen Doll'd Up Mascara


I remember one day I was seeing a review about this mascara on a UK blog and I thought like "Woah, nice... but I'll never buy it, the UK is too far away". But then the next month I was in Heathrow having one or two problems with my hand luggage (too many cosmetics) and while a very handsome English man was helping me out I heard a security guy telling a lady that she could get her medication from Boots just downstairs. 
Now, if you have been to Heathrow many times or if you live in the UK that must be nothing exciting, but for me it was like going to Disneyland. 
And you know the feeling you get when you go somewhere new and you like everything but can't choose anything. Then I remembered this mascara and for only £4 I picked it together with other things.

The Seventeen Doll'd Up mascara comes with a curved plastic wand that helps separate lashes very well. The formula is not too dry so it holds the lashes and allows you to apply more than two coats without clumps.
My lashes are as terrible as in the picture: short, thin, lighter than my natural hair color and this Doll'd Up provides lenght and volume without clumps. I love this as my everyday mascara and for special days I prefer using the YSL Babydoll mascara.

Have you heard about it? What's your favorite everyday mascara?

Un día estaba viendo una review de esta máscara en un blog de UK y tuve esa sensasión típica argentina de "Ay quiero, pero nunca la voy a conseguir". Lo que no sabía es que un par de meses después iba a estar en Heathrow teniendo algunos problemas con seguridad debido a mi equipaje de mano (demasiados cosméticos) y mientras un inglés (hermoso) me ayudaba, escuché a una señora del area de seguridad decirle a una pasajera que podía comprar su medicación en Boots, un piso abajo. 
Para las que no saben, Boots es como un Farmacity británico y oh dios venden de todo. Me acuerdo que me empezaron a subir los latidos del corazón cuando entré! tenían de todo y a muy buenos precios! Ahí mismo recordé que quería probar esta máscara de pestañas y por 4 libras (unos 44 pesos) fue mía.
Esta máscara viene con una brochita de plástico curvada que separa muy bien las pestañas. La formula no es nada acuosa por lo cual sostiene la forma de las pestañas y permite poner mas de dos capas sin que se pegoteen. Como verán en las fotos mis pestañas son horribles: cortas, rectas y más claras que mi color de pelo natural y Doll'd up las alarga y da volumen. Me encanta como máscara de uso diario pero para ocasiones especiales prefiero usar la YSL Babydoll.

¿Cuál es su máscara preferida para todos los días?

    1. Tiene que ser alguno de fórmula medio seca, probaste el YSL babydoll o maxfactor false lash effect

  14. I don't know why, but I always like seeing your lash "transformations" with mascara. Looks like a good mascara so far! I've been using Urban Decay's cannonball one for a while now, my current tube has lasted about 9 months and it's still going strong - it's not dry and it's not hard to work with either. Might seem gross, but if it still works I'm still using it :P

    I can't believe you don't have Urban Decay at Sephora!! Is it like that all over Sweden?

  18. this mascara looks amazing on you!! i can't get my hands on this here in hong kong, but will definitely remember to check it out next time i'm in the UK :) my favorite mascara is lancome hypnose drama - it's the only one that manages to hold a curl for me! a close second would be maybelline falsies mascara, which adds amazing length and definition

  19. Oh wow your lashes look amazing in the after picture! I've seen this so many times in Boots but never picked it up as the brush didn't appeal. I'd definite buy it now after seeing your lash photo!! Xx
