Mascara Challenge: How to Make the Most Out of Your Mascara+Mascara Reviews

It seems like every time you turn on the TV there’s some type of advertisement for a mascara that can provide you the best eyelash experience. So I’m sharing my reviews on some recent mascara purchases.

First, it’s important to use a mascara primer. I never used one at first, but once I did I never stopped and it’s the best thing you could use for your lashes. What are the benefits of mascara primer you ask?

  • helps lashes stay soft underneath mascara
  • gives lashes nutrients to keep lashes healthy
  • makes lashes look fuller and longer
  • helps mascara adhere to lashes- no more raccoon eyes!!

Although this is an extra step in your makeup routine, you lashes will thank you.

Oh and don’t forget, NO PUMPING!! The extra pumping with your mascara traps air causing your mascara to dry out quicker.

My Top 5 Mascara Reviews

Drugstore mascaras can be a little tricky. I could never really find a good drugstore mascara that I truly love and this one became another added to the list. The spoon-like curved brush got me excited, however the formula is very clumpy and flaky. Applying a second coat is impossible unless you’re super fast at applying mascara.

This has become on of my favorite mascaras right now. Although it is more on the pricier side compared to your drugstore ones, I’d rather spend money on a good mascara that I know works. This brush gives you volume, intensity and curl all in one. It also doesn’t leave my lashes feeling very dry or brittle. Unfortuetly, it’s not waterproof.

SMOKY-EXTRAVAGANT-PACKSHOT-CLO_EnlargedMakeup Forever’s Smoky Extravagant Mascara ($24.00)

Another great mascara for volume, curl and length! This cone shaped brush is perfect to use, espeicaly when it comes to separating lashes.


Benefit Cosmetics’ “They’re Real” ($23.00)

Love this!! This a great everyday mascara for length and 2231443curl however it doesn’t give you much intensity or volume, unless you already have beautiful perfect lashes. The best part is the brush beause it’s so percise allowing you to coat and separate every lash.

Benefit Cosmetics’ “BADGal Lash” ($19.00)

Now this mascara will give you the volume and intensity that you’re looking for! A nice thick brush with intense color. The great thing abou this line is that both “BADGal Lash” and “They’re Real” can be used together to create the perfect lash look.benefit_badgallash_900x900
