Eye makeup for me is what makes my whole look. It can either end up looking fabulous or hideous, depends on what works for me on what day but if it is the latter, it's nothing a good mascara can't fix.
So for today's post, I thought I'd tell you about my top 5 mascaras!
Starting off with the most affordable out of the bunch, the Volum' Express One by One from Maybelline is my absolute favourite drugstore mascara. I get just the right amount of volume and length for day to day, which can build up into an evening's look with a couple of added coats. The bristols on the wand really help to get each lash separately and keeping your eye look clump free, hence the name! I'd definitely recommend it.
Next up is actually the second mascara I've ever owned and it is Lancome's Hypnose Doll Eyes. In all honesty, I'm pretty sure it's the only non-waterproof mascara that does not slip down my eyes at the end of the day which gives it major bonus points from me. It defines your lashes, both short and long as well as your lower lashes perfectly due to the unique shape of its wand and I just love it!
The next 3 mascaras are all by Benefit which isn't surprising, I rave about their mascaras all the time because somehow Benefit just really excels with its formulas! First up is Roller Lash which I think is my favourite Benefit mascara. The wand curls, lifts, lengthens and volumizes my lashes so well, I literally look like I have falsies on! Although, if you don't use it right, your lashes could look very ordinary which is why it doesn't work for some people. Once you figure out how to use it, it is perfect! So if you've tried it and didn't like it, give it another go, you'll love it!
They're Real is another one that I use all the time and really love. It lengthens my lushes more than anything else so I do layer it up with another mascara for the volume but it works perfectly. I especially love it during Summer or when it gets hot outside because it is waterproof and it's honestly so hard to get off which means it will stay put and that is something I can't complain about!
Last but not least, BADgal Lash is very volumising, not so much lengthening which is why I like layering it up with They're Real. Both together give the perfect amount of length and the perfect amount of volume, creating my perfect mascara mixture! I definitely think if Benefit mixed the two formulas together with a new wand, it would be spot on!
And those are my top 5 mascaras! What mascara do you love using?
Lots of love,
