Seventeen Superlash Mascara / Darkest Black
"Give lashes SUPER hero status with our amazing SUPER fibre lengthening mascara & volumising buster brush. Lashes look longer & thicker for instant OH WOW...KAPOW!!" on the packaging.
Available in two (2) shades : Black/Brown and Darkest Black
I tried this mascara for a few times and here are my thoughts:
We have all experienced the black mascaras that are not so black in the end. This mascara is definitely true to its colour and I couldn't be happier about it.
This mascara retails for £6.99 for 9ml (Currently in Boots for £4.99) which is a really good price for a drugstore mascara, compared to the one I reviewed before (BOURJOIS Volumizer Ultra Black Mascara).
I have to confess that the packaging was one of the reasons I was attracted by this mascara in the first place. The colours, the style of it just remind me of a super hero/pin up/cartoonish theme.
Ease of use
The brush is really easy to work with, I didn't have any problem with my lashes sticking together and everything. However as you will see in the pictures below, you will probably need more than one coat to get at least some extra volume, otherwise it looks really weird. But a little more effort is okay by me.

I have naturally long lashes and that's the main reason I prefer volumising mascaras rather that lengthening ones, but most mascaras provide them both and this one claims that is no exception. I really like the fact that even with one coat you can see the difference in length, not 93% though. However I wouldn't say that my lashes have much more volume but an extra coat will definitely fix this problem. The best part in my opinion is that it doesn't make my lashes clumpy or spidery. The most annoying yet really good part about this mascara is that it is really difficult to get off, it took me ages with my makeup remover wipes. The good think about this is that there is hardly any transfer under your eyes at the end of the day.

If you are looking for a lengthening mascara that really does what it claims then this is the mascara you are looking for.
