Happy Friday! I hope everyone had a great Halloween and is ready for the weekend! Instead of today's usual Face Mask Friday, I wanted to talk about something I always get asked about: mascaras! Everyone wants to know which one is the best right?! Here are my top three! I chose a drug store pick, an averaged priced pick, and a high end pick:
The first, and my personal favorite, is Benefit's They're Real mascara. This mascara works unbelievably well, and coming from someone who has short straight lashes, that is a major statement. This is a jet black mascara that really lengthens the lashes, without the clumps! The wand has a unique tip, which allows you to maneuver the brush to coat hard to reach inner corner lashes. According to the Sephora website:
In a consumer panel survey, the following results were reported:
- 94% saw dramatic length and volume
- 90% saw base-to-tip curl
- 94% saw visible lift
-100% saw long-wearing results
While more expensive than a drug store mascara, it is not as expensive as some high end picks! For $23.00, you can achieve the same great lashes $30.00 + bottles of mascara give you. You can pick it up here for $23.00 for the larger size or $10.00 for the sample size.
My next pick is the high end YSL's "Shocking" mascara. This mascara provides lots of volume and really makes the lashes look full! I use it when I want a really "glossy & black" look, however if you use too many coats of this mascara, it can look a little clumpy and spider like. So you have to find that balance of what looks best for your lashes. This mascara is also a top pick of mine because it comes in several different colors, such as purple, green, and blue! It is a bit pricier, coming in at $30.00! If you are interested, you can pick it up here.
My final pick is Maybellines "The Falsies: Volum Express," mascara. Coming in at only $7.77, it is a great budget friendly option. As you can see from the picture, it has a curved wand that really mimics the shape of your eye, allowing it to grab ahold of every single lash. It coats lashes I didn't even know I had! This also makes a great bottom lash mascara because of the wand shape.
This mascara gives the lashes lots of volume, but not so much length. So, feel free to use this mascara with a lengthening one for your perfect eyelash combination! I like to pair this with Benefits They're Real for the perfect lash look! You can pick up this mascara at your local drugstore- I got mine from Target!
