Mascara, oh how I loathe and love thee. I wasn’t born with the long, thin, fairy wing-like lashes of a Demi-goddess. I, like many other women on this planet, fake it. So here are the latest mascaras I’ve been using and what they do for my lashes. Just in case you wanna, you know, fake it, too. Yea. Right. Well…
First up, and my least favorite of the group is Maybelline’s Volum’ Express The Colossal Chaotic Lash mascara. The mouthful of words in that name is almost sinful. I was disappointed with the quality of the formula as well as the applicator wand. When I opened it, the formula seemed too thick and unworkable. The bristles of the wand aren’t very gentle on my lashes and the end results were noticeable but not stellar. My eyelashes stick together in chunks when I use this and the mascara dries so hard it’s quite the removal process.The one redeeming quality is how very rich and dark the mascara is.
The L’Oreal Extra Volume Collagen was a dream to use. The formula feels perfect on my lashes and it was easy enough to remove. I don’t have anything bad to say about this mascara. The price is also great!
And now, may I introduce the best mascara that my stubborn little lashes have ever been kissed with?! Dior’s DiorShow Black mascara is so perfect. I’m sure there are even better mascaras out there but I just can’t get enough of this! My friend Sharlene brought it on her recent trip to visit me and I just want to kiss her cheeks for this!
Besides the Dior mascara, the others are pretty affordable but I now definitely recommend at least trying a higher end mascara. The difference is insane.
What are some of your favorite mascaras?
