Review // Seventeen Back Lash Mascara in Blackest Black

Seventeen Back Lash Mascara - £6.49
Forever on the hunt for a new mascara to see if I can find one that outshines my beloved Bourjois Volume 1 Seconde Mascara, I picked up the Seventeen Back Lash Mascara whilst on a recent shopping trip. I was really drawn to the packaging which is a real bitch to photograph. I hadn't heard of the Seventeen Back Lash Mascara before I bought it so thought it was a new product launched but after a little google I found out that it has actually been around for a while.

What Seventeen say about their Back Lash Mascara:

"You can have it all. Volume. Length. Definition. Lift. 100% greater lash impact. The evenly spaced fibres of the brush gently combs through lashes to deliver an even coverage of mascara from root to tip, without being overloaded. The tip of the brush is shaped to catch the smaller corner lashes."

I really like the packaging to the mascara which has a regular twist up lid. I wish it would make a little clicking sound when it was fully closed so I knew that it was properly closed as I am a little worried it would dry out quickly. It has a standard bristle brush to it which is smaller at the tip to make it easier to get into the small corners of the eyes. As mascara wands go, it is very standard but sometimes, that's all you want from a mascara.

I really love the natural results Back Lash gives. The colour is black, like it states, and the mascara gives definition, volume and lift as well as separating the lashes. I love the results after one coat of Back Lash (first photo) and have often left my eyelashes like that rather than adding a few more coats, top and bottom. 

Overall, I really love the results Back Lash gives. It delivers all it claims and the results are lovely and natural. The formula isn't too wet or dry, nor does it transfer onto the eyelids which I often find from some mascaras. Next time you pop into Boots, give it a try!
