I decided to do a post about my favorite mascaras because frankly I love mascara. Honestly, if I had 5 minutes to do my makeup I would only wear a tad of foundation and then multiple coats of mascara. I feel that mascara not only completes a look, but it works it magic opening, defining and just making you look more awake. I will admit that my love affair for mascara has led me to try numerous mascaras. Many I have liked, many I have disliked, but these 4 are my ultimate favorites that I like to think as my standbys…
CoverGirl Lash Blast:
This is one of the best mascaras ever, hence why it gets so much attention. I feel like people either love it or leave it. I think it does a fantastic job of making my lashes look long and thick. It performs well with other eye makeup, and it stands well on its own. If someone was brand new to mascara I think I would tell them to buy this. I can’t say enough good things about it! The brush itself is a rubber wand with little grips on it. I find this makes separating my lashes easier, and also helps with no clumping. The only gripe I have is that it can be difficult to remove. However, since finding my new favorite makeup wipes (Hi Neutrogena!) it has been easier to remove this.
Neutrogena Healthy Volume:
This mascara doesn’t get a lot of hype. I love it because it is easy to work with, doesn’t clump and makes my lashes look really thick and plump. It also has rice protein in it that helps with growth. I can’t really say if that is true or not, but I know it comes off with ease (when I want it to!), and makes my lashes feel soft. The brush itself is a long traditional wand which I think is what helps "pump" up the lashes. This is a good mascara if you are a volume loving kind of girl.
Neutrogena Healthy Length:
This is another mascara that doesn’t get a lot of love! I bought this one and the one above at Ulta on a buy 1 get 1 50% off sale. As you may get from the name, this mascara gives outstanding length. The brush itself is a rubber like, thin and has varied separators. Like legit “fake lashes” looking. I don’t wear fake lashes at all since they bother my eyes, but with this tube I get the look of the falsies but no eye tearing.
TIP: The healthy volume & healthy length look crazy together!! See for yourself above…
Kiehl’s Marvelous Mineral:
I am a Kiehl’s addict. Literally everything skincare (and now I’m getting into their hair stuff) I use is Kiehl’s. This brand has done wonders to my skin, so it is only natural (see what I did) to check out their mascara. This mascara did not disappoint! I love it frankly and so does Temptalia. The brush itself is a traditional wand that is medium sized and has very defined separators. This makes it really easy to comb through my lashes. It is a great tube that does it all: length, volume, separating. It is a little pricier but I’m willing to splurge!
What are your favorite mascaras? These are my favorites but I love trying new ones!
