Review: Seventeen Blow Out Mascara


For a while now I have obsessively used Benefit mascaras. It was They're Real, and more recently, RollerLash. However I then decided that I didn't want to pay such extortionate prices for mascara, so I took to Twitter and asked the Twittersphere for advice! Two brands stood out - Seventeen and Maybelline. So I went into Boots and perused to see what beauties I could pick out. I decided to get Seventeen's Blow Out because it was on an offer and it promised to give me volume, 12x volume to be exact. Now I didn't expect to have literally 12x the volume, but I was expecting a lot.
So I was a bit...deflated with the results. Don't get me wrong, for £6.29 this mascara is fantastic, it just doesn't rival the likes of Benefit - and that's what I was after. I found that throughout the day I lost the curl, and the volume in my eyelashes, which I wasn't a fan of, and it didn't make my eyelashes as long as I would have liked.

That being said, I'm still using it, because I don't like waste and it's fine for day to day use, but I don't think I'll be repurchasing this.

You can buy Seventeen's Blow Out mascara for £6.29 on the Boots website here or in store.

If you have any recommendations for a high street mascara, please let me know!


  1. The Bourjois 1 Seconde Mascara is fantastic!

  2. There aren't too many mascaras that can compare to Benefit's They're Real! It's such an incredible mascara but the price is a real downer :(
    What is the brush like on this one? I always prefer mascaras that have a long, skinny brush as they give me the best length. Afterwards I'll move on to something that gives me volume, and this layering method seems to work really well for me :)

  3. It's a shame this didn't live up to your expectations! I still haven't found a holy grail high street mascara, but I do quite like the Growth Mascara by Gosh :) xx


  4. I've not heard of this mascara before! really like how it applies though!
