I asked some of my followers what their favorite mascara was and here’s what they told me:
Maybelline New York FALSIES – “it does what it says it will”
Estée Lauder TURBO LASH – “I’ve been using faithfully for the last 3 years”
Lancôme HYPNOSE DRAMA – “my lashes are full and extended without clumping and it’s hypoallergenic.”
Maybelline MEGA PLUSH – “makes my lashes fuller and voluptuous”
Covergirl LASH BLAST – “I used to use two mascaras…this is one that gives me volume and length”
Now, I personally love Maybelline mascara (I’ve been rolling with the pink & green since I started wearing makeup); however, for the past couple of months I’ve been using Covergirl’s Lash Blast and MAKEUP FOR EVER’s Smokey Lash, and I really like both. I’ve been using the Smokey Lash more when I go out for a more dramatic look and the Lash Blast on a daily basis when I’m out and about. I will say though, applying about 3 – 4 coats of the Lash Blast gives me the same look as the Smokey Lash.
Recently, I tried 2 new mascaras one by L’Oreal and the other by Maybelline – L’Oreal’s False Fiber Lashes and Maybelline’s Mega Plush. After reading negative reviews on-line about the False Fiber and positive reviews about the Mega Plush, I was extremely surprised by the results. I actually liked the False Fiber way better than the Mega Plush. It made my lashes super thick and long after only a couple of coats. The Mega Plush…not so much. My lashes actually looked thinner. It’s funny because one of my classmates uses Mega Plush and it makes her already thick and long lashes even more so. I guess the saying “for each it’s own” speaks true here because even though the False Fiber was disliked by many and only received 2 stars on the website, I still love it and I will definitely continue to use it. So, always remember these simple things when deciding on a product….
- Don’t believe the hype.
- What works for one doesn’t work for all.
- Try before you buy (ask for samples or keep your receipt and packaging so you can easily return).
If you haven’t found the perfect mascara for YOU, hopefully these tips will help.
