Review // No7 Intense Volume Mascara!

Wednesday, October 05, 2016


Hello Everybody,

Mascara probably is my least favorite item when it approaches to cosmetics. However, I do have my eyes out for good ones to wear on special occasions and I’ve been meaning to try the No7 brand since Lisa Eldridge praised it in one of her videos.  This mascara wasn’t a standout product for me, though I do like certain aspects of it. Read my review below to conclude how the mascara sounds to you.


Price, Purchase and Packaging

I bought this mascara from Daraz.pk for PKR 490. It isn’t available locally neither it is present on Daraz any longer but keep checking if you want one. It has a simple packaging but I still really like it especially the shiny, smooth exterior. Only shade brown/black was being offered and the packaging rightfully depicts that. The mascara comes in a 7ml tube with a long and thin mascara wand.


Shade, Texture and Consistency 

For me, the brown/black shade was a pleasant surprise because it really complements my eyes and looked very natural which is something I like to go for. Texture wise and consistency wise, it is very liquid-y and requires quite a while to dry down. I like the fact that it doesn’t clump and enables me to layer my lashes as much as I want. 


My Thoughts

The brush is not very big but still, I have to be careful from smudging my upper lash line. It delineates and separates each lash very nicely, yet the effect is almost unnoticeable. It is a kind of mascara which requires a hard look to be fully observed but still, I think it is nice for everyday wear. It doesn’t annoyingly tie my eyelashes together in that weird spider-y manner, neither does it smell of anything dreadful. 

I would make one thing clear here that I mentioned above, the formula is very liquid-y and that is a pro in a way that the mascara will dry out very late in future and would get you through many applications. The mascara must be coated many times to get the desired effect but basically, it is just an ordinary daily wear mascara that neither makes you lose anything nor forces out a “gasp” from you.


Usually, I use this mascara as a base beneath a more intense one. It only lengthens the lashes and doesn’t give any solid, thick or volumized appeal which is quite disappointing, considering that it is labelled as “intense volume.” I still love my “Maybelline Great Lash Mascara” as it both lengthens, volumizes, thickens and looks natural at the same time.


I would give this product 3/5 and will say that this is just an “average” product, nothing to be seriously excited about.

                                                                  RESULTS


Would I Recommend

Good for young girls, for daily wear and for using as a base underneath a more “thickening” mascara.

Would I Repurchase?

No, I won’t but I will look out for other No7 products.

  1. I have been on the hunt for the perfect affordable mascara but I haven't found it yet. I tried lots but still, they either give me volume and no length or length without volume. I will keep searching though :)

    1. Yup, this one is very natural. You should try the Essence Big Lashes Mascara or Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara, it is very volumising. Thanks for stopping by. :)

  16. I haven't tried any No7 products, but this mascara doesn't really look appealing to me... I love intense black and volumizing mascaras, so I guess I'll skip this one... Great post xx
