17 Wild Curls Mascara in Wildest Black

As mentioned in friday's haul post I purchased 17's Wild Curls Mascars in 'Wildest Black' for £1 as part of their 'say yes to summer' voucher promotion. I was quite skeptical of this mascara to begin with. Usually when products are priced so cheap I assume that they're not the best quality, yet I was pleasantly surprised with this! 
First off I have to mention the gorgeous packaging of this mascara. Many people find leopard print cheap and tacky but I adore it, and with the metallic gold I think it gives it a really fun edge. It's a traditional cylindrical shape in comparison to other 17 mascaras such as Falsieye, which has a more rectangular shape and I personally found that to feel a bit weird when I first tried it.  

One of the things I was most surprised about with this product is the brush, with my usual preference for mascara brushes bring big and wide, so I thought it may be quite difficult to get the hang of applying this but I found no problems at all, which was pleasant. The small uneven bristles on the brush makes it easy to reach every lash and I feel makes it a lot easier to apply the mascara. Another problem I usually have with mascara's is that they feel quite wet and 'gloopy' when new but I didn't notice this at all with Wild Curls, as having anything too heavy or uncomfortable on my lashes is a definite no-no for me and I wouldn't consider anything I felt didn't 'feel' nice on my lashes. 

First of all I apologise for my incredibly blotchy skin, I think I've had a bad reaction to a mask I used this morning :(! Instead you can just look at my gorgeous wallpaper :)  But above is a picture with one coat of Wild Curls, and this is how I'd usually wear it for an everyday look. As well as curling my lashes it also spread lashes. 

Overall I think this is a permanent fixture to my makeup routine. As well as lengthening my lashes it also separates and  doesn't clump at all. I have been wearing this mascara for approximately 9 hours now and there is no sign of clumping or smudging at all. I feel this would also be a great mascara for a night out as well with a few more coats! 

17 Wild Curls Mascara is available in Black, Brown, Wildest Black and Black Waterproof from boots and for £6.29, or £1 if you've received a voucher like mine!*  This is the third 17 mascara I have tried and I am extremely impressed with all of them!

*Despite not paying full price for this product, I feel my opinion is 100% honest as always, and the price has in no way swayed my review in any way, and I would gladly re-purchase this for full price. 


  1. Wow, I can't believe you only paid £1 for that! It looks lovely, and even the full price isn't too steep. Cheers for the tip!

    1. The voucher was one of the advantage card ones you get through the post, although I've been told people have received different ones, so I guess I was one of the luckier ones! X
