My Favourite Mascaras...

Tuesday, 18 August 2009

Those who know me, or have heard my rants about why my sister was blessed with the best lashes in the world, and not me, know I have tried almost every mascara under the sky...
(I mean except for those ridiculously priced ones. Hey, I'm not rich...yet! ;))

...and so far I have found only a few that do it for my sad excuse of lashes!

So i'm going to share these fab finds with you!

I use all of them interchangebly (Whichever I grab first) and I don't have an explicit fave out of the bunch, they all just seem to do the job!

Warning: Quite Picture heavy!


Ultimate Mascara

The First one is my Mary Kay Ultimate Mascara (£11.50).
I have to say that at first i was a bit skeptical to buy this one. The main reason was because i hadn't purchased anything from MK beforehand and had nothing to go buy, however I'm so glad i did in the end because I have found that it is in fact amazing.
It volumises and separates my lashes and leaves behind NO Clumps!

Bad Gal Lash

This is the mascara that i got for free in an issue of Glamour Mag a couple of months ago (I read good reviews about it on a few beauty blogs and because of the great deal i bought 3 mags, just so i would have a backup of it, lol)

The wand is super big and the formula is great, and this one really extends my lashes!

Colossal Volum' Express

My Colossal (£6.84) has made quite a number of appearances in my makeup tutorials and fotds!
It's bright yellow packaging is hard to miss which is why i always grab it!
Love, love, love it!

Great Lash

The oldest of the bunch (£4.88).
My "Vintage" mascara!
I actually teefed this from my mum when i was about 14 or 15.
It was my very first (Not this particular one, the actual product!).
The small wand allows for precise application and the formula is black-BLACK!

*NOTE* ~ Until i stumble upon another God send, these will remain the ones i swear by.

Thanks soo much for stopping by!


**PS** What do you think of my NEW photography skillz..huh, huh?? lol

Thanks for this, I was actually looking for a new mascara...I bought Lancome Hypnose; have you tried it? Is it worse than the Mary Kay one?

The New Black said...

I am a total mascara whore, but I always come back to L’OrĂ©al'sVoluminous mascara in black brown. It's awe.some.

MaryKay is amazing!!!! I love their make-up. I used to be a Clinque client but ever since my boyfriend brought me MaryKay Cosmetics (Creme-to-Powder, eye-shadow, mascara-blush, etc. ) I've been in love!!!!
