Make-up industry heavyweights Bobbi Brown have mastered a lot of things in their time.

The trusted brand are one of few that are able to consistently impress and their Smokey Eye mascara is no different.

The brush takes things back to basics with a thick base which combs through eyelashes from roots to ends.

The shape manages to reach every lash, giving a dramatic eye without thick or clumpy mascara leftovers.

The title comes from the fact the mascara “is the perfect compliment to a smokey eye look”. I am partial to a good smokey eye look, when I can bothered, and it is true.

Rather than give you the dreaded spiders legs, the product fans out lashes for a look that treads the line between real and fake looking lashes.

For someone like myself, who prefers a natural looking lash, it's the ideal mascara and only takes a few strokes to get it looking just right.

I'm not one to splash out on mascard but Bobbi Brown might just have changed my ways.
