I’ve been on a quest this year to find fantabulous mascara! I feel like I’ve tried just about all of them, both drug store and higher end brands. What I’ve learned is that A) my stupid lashes are just too short and B) just because a mascara costs a lot, doesn’t mean it’s the best.
The last couple of higher end mascaras have left me pretty much disappointed. My fine, short lashes need volume and length and I’ve just not found one that lived up to the hype for the price.
Just yesterday I bought this one from MAC, false lashes. Tried it this morning, and I’m so underwhelmed that I’m taking it back to get a refund. I mean, why pay $22 for mascara when you can’t even see a difference? I should have taken a pic, but just my two cents, don’t waste your money.
I had just ran out of Lancôme Hypnose that I had been using the past couple of months. I give it about the same rating as the MAC false lashes. I just couldn’t see how it was worth the almost $30 it costs. I wish I had returned it too, but I so wanted it to work. I kept thinking it was user application error so I kept trying to make it work.
So, before I started on this higher end mascara journey I was using the Falsies by Maybelline, which I picked up at Publix again today because I’m tired of wasting my money on expensive mascara and if it ain’t broke, why try to fix it?! I love that not only is it only about $6, it really is a good mascara. It adds volume and length but doesn’t look clumpy. Also, I get black drama and it’s a super dark black and I love that it makes my eyes pop. This may sound weird, but it’s like the expensive brands I tried just weren’t black enough. Anybody else notice this with certain mascaras? I don’t wear eyeliner, so maybe that’s what I like about this mascara, it almost looks like I’ve lined my eyes because it’s so dark.
So, there you have it, all expensive mascaras aren’t worth the extra cash. There are still others I may try one day, like Dior because I hear great things about it, but for now, I’m gonna stick with what I know! I have also tried Benefit They’re Real, and that one gets two thumbs up! I’d definitely try it again. Do you have any recommendations for good mascara?
