Top 3 – Mascaras

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 Sensationalย 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 Mascaraย 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 Mascaraย 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.

      1. Yeah it is! I find it really helps keep my eyelashes in good condition, really soft and less fall out if that is even possible ๐Ÿ™ˆ

      2. Your welcome! I used to love the original one (the one in your post) so when they came out with the new formula I had to try it and since then haven’t switched back ๐Ÿ™ˆ hope you love it!


      3. Yeah I don’t see any difference and to be honest I prefer how my lashes look! The formula is a lot thicker so there’s no volume in my opinion ๐Ÿ™ˆ๐Ÿ™ˆ

  1. I love L’Orรฉal mascaras, they never have failed me! Thanks for your reviews, I love the Naked Palettes by UD but I haven’t tried their mascara.

  2. I had the lash sensational mascara for Christmas. I was using L’Orรฉal million lashes fatale before but I have to say I have been won over by the Lash sensational one it really lengthens my lashes ๐Ÿ˜
