Current Favourites: Mascaras

A quick note before I get onto the post - I've been having some technical issues recently so blog posts might be a bit out of sync whilst I'm using a different computer. I've actually just purchased a Macbook Pro (so excited!) - I've been saving up for ages and was planning on getting it in the summer, but seeing as my old computer packed up I've dipped into some of my other savings and bought it now instead. Like I said, I'll try and upload as usual providing I can get this all sorted out!

Anyway, today I wanted to talk about mascara. Mascara is one of those products that when I don't have it on, my face of make-up just doesn't feel quite right. I tend to stick to drugstore ones, as there are some good options out there without having to spend lots of money - although I have included a really nice high end option for those of you who prefer premium brands.

Maybelline The Falsies - I spoke about this in one of my last posts so I won't ramble on about it too much, but to summarise, this mascara is basically great if you're looking for volume. I like to apply something more lengthening beforehand and then go back over the top with this to create a more dramatic effect.

Bobbi Brown No Smudge - Along with my Warm Eye palette that I received at Christmas, I also got this mascara. I was so excited to try this as it was my first high end mascara, and it definitely didn't disappoint! I would say this sits somewhere in between the other two mascaras that I've included - it lengthens whilst still providing quite a bit of volume. I find that it makes my lashes look super long and I really like the simple yet large bristle brush that it comes with. Also, one of its main perks is that it's waterproof so is long lasting and stays on all day without fail.

L'Oreal Volume Million Lashes - Lastly is my current favourite lengthening mascara. This comes with a plastic wand that is perfect for separating lashes. I tend to use this first in order to create super long, dramatic lashes and then go over the top with one of the other mascaras I've mentioned to add a bit more volume. I actually find it quite similar to the Maybelline Rocket mascara that I mentioned quite a while ago, so if you like that then you're probably going to like this one too.

What are your current favourite mascaras?

  4. My fav one (currently) is Maybelline's The Rocket. However, I went on a mascara shopping spree a couple of weeks ago in San Francisco, so that fav one might change once I get to test all the ones I bought.
