I think I have a ridiculous amount of mascara in my current using collection. Which is very odd since I didn’t use to buy mascara. I actually just used eyeliner and was fine with that, but the last could of years I’ve slowly started using them more. I think the reason why I really didn’t use it was the fact the nobody every properly taught me how to take it off. Especially the waterproof kind. Now that I know (you should have seen my face when I learned about eye makeup remover) and have a proper night skincare routine, mascara is now the necessity.
My everyday favorites are my Maybellines. Colossal Volum’ Express Smoky Eyes is my gym bag mascara. It’s perfect to give my eyes a bit of lift after hitting the weights hard and doing some cardio. I have really short eyelashes, but they are curly, so all I really need is a bit of volume in them. My other everyday Maybelline favorite is the Volum’ Express Falsies Big Eyes. What I like the most is the fact that it has two brushes, one for upper lashes & one for lower!
My most recent addition is the Too Cool for School Dinoplatz Escalator Mascara and it came is the cutest packing. I got it as a gift from my secret santa at work in the From Korea, With Love BirchBox. The box is so cute, but the mascara is the bomb! And they don’t kid about being waterproof. My lashes looked thick and long! Love, love this stuff. Will have to find out how to get more when I run out!.
NYX Le Chick Flick is a great waterproof mascara. I typically use it when I’m heading to the gym early in the morning or a quick run to the grocery store. It doesn’t make my lashes have a lot of volume, but it goes make them look longer!
The last couple of mascara I’ve been trying out are a couple ones I got at Daiso: Santées’ Extra Volume Extension Mascara (Doubled-ended, the other side is a waterproof eyeliner), Diamond Waterproof Mascara in Glittery Green and Long Lash Mascara (I think this is also Santée… lost the packaging.). They are pretty good. All of them give quite of bit of volume and a bit of length, but I do notice that they do start to flake as the day goes on. I think the Extra Volume Extension does last quite a bit longer than the other two.
So what mascara are you all using nowdays?
