Mascara. Je t’aime.


Eyelashes. I am a bit infatuated with them. Really. In 3rd grade I was bored in class and cut them off. No clue why, but if that’s not a clear sign of undiagnosed ADD, I don’t know what is. They really weren’t concerned with it back then. Anyways, they grew back even longer. Which is quite phenomenal, and I’ve been embracing & flaunting them ever since. I don’t recommend cutting yours off to see if it the same thing happens. I’d rather let you know my favorite mascaras. Because I rarely leave the house without some sort of this substance on. 

So, here are few that have been, or are currently in the lineup.

The Splurges

1: Benefit They’re Real. The newest mascara of the bunch. Layer this stuff on and you look like you’ve got some falsies glued on. The only drawback is that there isn’t a waterproof version…yet. However I’ve worn it in the water and didn’t look like I ran into someone’s fist. In fact, it only runs if you rub your eyes, hard. It’s phenomenal. Worth every penny.

2: YSL Volume Effect Faux Cils. My mom, sister and I all swear by this stuff. It thickens, lengthens, raddens, and makes you look wide awake. It is not waterproof, but ok for a beach day. Let’s face it, it’s something YSL that doesn’t cost the same as a month’s rent.

The Daily Waterproof go-to’s

1: Maybelline Volume Express Falsies : This has been my go to for a while. Layers on with out clumps, and holds up to it’s waterproof label like a champ. 

2: Covergirl Lash Blast Waterproof: I asked my sister for this for Christmas a few years ago. It’s that awesome. Hannah, if you are reading this, send me some anytime.

3: Rimmell The Max Volume Flash Waterproof: I am almost through tube number 1 of this, and it has yet to run, budge, flake, or clump. Yet comes off easily without makeup remover. I’m fascinated. Good job Rimmell.

The Special stuff

1: Physicians Formula Shimmer Strips: This 2 in 1 brilliance has a separate tube of color that enhances your eye color. I did a post on it a while ago, It’s sweet, it’s fun, I need to pick up another tube. Going to try out the hot pink for hazel eyes this time. Even though I should have the green for green eyes. It’s hot pink people.

2: Maybelline Volume Express Mega Plush Mousse Mascara: Long name, I know. This has a cool little spring like brush so you can get every little lash. Plus it has a mousse formula with no waxes, so it’s very light, but doesn’t come off. Intriguing really.

There you go.

Now go on and give those lovely lashes some TLC.
