Hello my lovelies,
The next installment in my Top 3 series is on mascara. This is one of the first things as a young teenager I loved to wear. Still to this day if I apply make up mascara has to be applied. It completely changes the way your eyes and whole face generally looks.
I have short and stubby eyelashes which means that I need both length and volume. I have tried so many different mascaras in my time, some have been absolutely awful and some have been absolutely amazing. In my make up collection mascaras is something I love to collect and try out. I have somehow managed to whittle it down to just my top 3 to share with you.
Maybelline – Lash Sensational See Here
So this really is my all time favourite drug store mascara. It works absolute wonders for my eyelashes. It lengthens as well as volumises – everything I need in a mascara! I have used this for a good couple of years now and I know there are still people raving about this and I can understand why. I personally think it rivals some of the high end mascaras out there.
I always think a good test of a mascara is whether it smudges onto the bottom of your eyes over the course of the day. I never have a problem with the mascara and it lasts all day. The one thing I would say is when I first tried this, I didn’t like it. I waited until it had dried a little and it was perfect for me. If you do buy it and you aren’t blown over with it, leave it for a while and persevere!
Lancome – Hypnose Mascara See Here
I purchased this at IMATS last summer as I had heard the lovely Tanya Burr talk about Lancome mascaras, I didn’t know what to expect but I had high hopes. I was definitely not disappointed by this product, it is extremely voluminous which is what I love and also lengthening. I use this mainly on nights out when I want my lashes to stand out that little bit more. It is jet black and it a thick consistency.
I love the brush on this one also as it enables me to get right into the corner of my eyes and coat every lash. I don’t use this for my bottom lashes as it is so thick, so do bare this in mind. I don’t mind as I have so many mascaras I can use more than one at a time. I think I am going to try out some other mascaras from Lancome to see how they compare!
Urban Decay – Perversion Mascara See Here
I am 100% in love with this mascara. I simply cannot live with out it, if I had to choose one it would be this one. This is more a volumising mascara as opposed to a lengthening mascara and I am totally ok with that. I use this almost every day as a second coat on my lashes to give them that bit more volume. I think you can tell I love a bit of volume!
This works brilliantly with all my other mascaras, but also works perfectly on its own. I know their is a primer that you can buy with this but I really don’t think it needs one, well not for me anyway. I love the packaging of this, like all of Urban Decay really. There is so much product inside of the tube, I have had this for a little while now and I don’t feel like it is running out any time soon. I think it is the perfect mascara if you are wanting a reliable high end mascara.
Let me know what your favourite mascaras are as I am always on the hunt for new ones and love to hear your recommendations!
