Dalton Cosmetics Lash Fix Tilting Mascara

RRP: £15
NB. The brand is also known as Doll10 on some websites.

--What does the promo say?--
"When it comes to fantastic lashes, it's all about the angle! Twist this duo of Lash Fix Tilting Mascaras and achieve the perfect angle for coating lashes in hard-to-reach inner and outer corners without making a mess. The dense black mascaras deliver stellar volume, length, and curl, and even feature Nutra 6 Complex to condition lashes. Flake-free and smudge-free."

The shine of the pink lettering and contrasting black tube is eye-catching and different. This mascara also has the unique selling point of a lid that twists the mascara wand in order to create a tilting effect, so that smaller and corner lashes can be more easily reached. However, this function broke quite quickly, meaning that mine is now stuck on the tilted setting.

Twist the lid to set the tilted function. This can be done whether the wand is in or out of the tube. After this, apply the mascara normally.

A greater lengthening effect is achieved thanks to the tilting function, as it does mean that smaller and corner lashes are coated more effectively. 

--Texture and consistency--
Mostly goes on smoothly, although some clumps are evident.

This is difficult. Even with a normally reliable makeup remover, panda eyes are still visible in the morning.

--Value for money--
At £15, this is pushing the upper limits of good value, especially given that this product has a few faults. For this price, I'd be looking more at mascaras by Urban Decay, Aveda, Fashion Fair or Benefit.
