In general I am pretty loyal, but that would make for very boring beauty blogs. When it comes to mascaras, I tend to resort back to Tarte. Whether it is the Tarteist, Light Camera Action or the one with the Himalayan clay: I like them all. This is cause I like drama, but only for my lashes! I am weird, I like them thick and almost clumpy. Mascara Although I have found a few pretty, less dramatic but very effective ones as well.
I love Benefit’s BADgal Bang, it has the best brush. It separates lashes and it will give you the appearance of falsies. It curls the lashes as it separates them. The formula is inspired by space technology…formulated with aero particles to create intense volume without weighing the lashes down. Their words! Another plus of this mascara is that it contains Provitamin B5 which strengthens and conditions your lashes as well as making them look amazing. A full size will set your back $22.00 but it is worth it.
Another splurge worthy mascara is Lash Idols by Lancôme. Also has an amazing brush. It claims to be lifting and add volume. I find it to be a very natural looking mascara which makes my lashes look very naturally long and curly. It claims to volumize every lash for instant lift,length and fanned out volume without clumps. Check, check and check. Fanned out that is the word I am looking for! You can purchase Lash Idols by Lancôme for $27.00 at local department store, Ulta’s or Sephora’s.
Would it be fair to state that the pricy mascara’s have better brushes? In my experience I feel as if that is where the major difference lies. I tried Maybelline’s Sky High Mascara. I complemented one of my team members on her mascara and she referred me to this one. I could see the difference in her lashes. With some patience it worked the same magic for me although I did miss the fancy brush. Make sure you use a lash curler before using Sky High. It also takes a few uses for some reason before it glides on naturally. I learned to use it sparingly, I tend to over do it which may cause it to clump. The only true downside to this is that it is hard to take off, which some may consider a plus! Another plus: the price..10 bucks.
I will continue my disloyalty to my favorite mascara since I have a few more to test. Keep the samples coming!
