Makeup really is an ever revolving spiral in my life. Something that I loved one minute can be replaced by a brand new thing the next. This spiral is very true when it comes to mascaras. I go through a fair few to find ones that I well and truly love.
What I tend to look for in a mascara is something that won’t smudge, will give my skimpy lashes length and not be allergic to. A lot of popular mascara formulas tend to make my eyes water. That was why I had to throw away the Benefit They’re Real and Bare Minerals Lash Domination (that one is actually caught on camera).
At the moment, these are the six that I am really enjoying at this moment in time.
Lancome Monsieur Big
This mascara is beautiful. It truly is anything that you would want in a mascara for long, voluminous lashes. Yes it is on the more pricey side at £21, but it is worth every penny. This is perfect for contact lense wearers and it won’t make your eyes water. I tend to wear this one for date night because I can always trust it to make my eyes look amazing.
PUR Cosmetics Fully Charged
This gives gorgeous looking lengthy lashes without the volume of the Mr Big mascara. It is a really beautiful, everyday formula for people with tiny lashes. Mine have been destroyed from years of eye rubbing so they will never really grow long. This really helps give my lashes the illusion of being long.
L’Oreal Lash Paradise
If you want a cheap dupe for the Mr Big mascara, go for this. They are essentially the same product. Without a doubt this is one of the best all-rounder mascaras available at the drugstore. It gives gorgeous lashes, and the formula will not smudge through the day.
Clinique Flutter to Full
This really is an old favourite. I have been wearing this now for just over a year. This is the closest formula that I own to waterproof. I can wear this to the gym and have a very sweaty workout; this will be the only thing left on my face. I love the fact that you can twist the dial to get different amounts of volume to the lashes. It will not give you the volume of some of the others on this list, but it’s a beautiful everyday formula when you want a minimal eye look.
Essence Lash Princess
This is a really new entry to my favourites. This is a very similar effect to the Clinique mascara, however it gives more volume. My lashes look gorgeous with this. I have actually been using this for my lower lashes. It doesn’t smudge and actually makes it look like I have decent lower lashes.
What can I say, Lancome know how to make a great mascara! This is an amazing formula and gives just as long and voluminious lashes as the Mr Big, however this is easier to control on the lower lash line. I love the short funky wand; it makes getting the tiny lashes in the corner of your eye really easy to locate. I really do love this mascara a lot.
What are your favourite mascaras at the moment?
Have a lovely day guys!
