Humidity and moisture-resistant formulae are the latest buzz-words in mascara. And most of the brands that boast it cost an eye-watering sum. But Technic, the make-up brand that gives the latest looks at rock-bottom prices, has just brought one out.
The new Aqua Max costs only £1.49. Its fibre-enriched formula thickens, lengthens and plumps up lashes, but its moisture resistant properties means it’ll stay put no matter what. Order it online at www.lovethymakeup.com.
