Best and worst mascara?

Recommended Posts

I'm wondering what mascaras you've loved and which ones have not been worth the $.

 

I used to love 2000 Calorie from Max Factor - but Max Factor isn't sold any more in the US. I ordered some from Ebay and it wasn't the same (change in brush style and maybe formula). Since then I have bounced around from brand to brand and haven't loved anything. I really hate the new plastic brushes (like some of the Covergirl mascaras). I like an old fashioned bristly fat brush.

 

So - what have been your love/hates for drugstore mascara?

I'm gonna go ahead and throw in my 2 cents for both drugstore and high end mascara, since I have tried several mascaras over time.

 

BEST: I love the L'Oreal Voluminous Million Lashes. For me, this stuff worked really, really well. As far as high end goes, I really like the Dior Diorshow Extase a lot. Like the L'Oreal, it looks really natural, my lashes look full, lush and gorgeous and I don't have any smudging or flaking.

 

WORST: Maybelline Volum' Express Colossal Waterproof. I really, really don't like this stuff! I find it really stiff and dry and it makes my lashes look really spidery. I only picked this one up because I've read several reviews that said it was a dupe of the Diorshow, so I figured I'd give it a shot. It's noooowhere close to it! I also picked up the waterproof Maybelline Mega Plush when it came out, and so far, not really diggin' it. I find the bend in the wand makes it hard to get a really good hold on my lashes. For high end stuff, I hate Benefit Bad Gal lash. It's thick, super wet, gloopy, and I always feel like my lashes are weighed down.

 

I used to be a major lover of Maybelline's mascaras, but I dunno. After looking at the ones I've had issue with, maybe I'm not actually such a fan lol?

CoverGirl Lashblast is almost a dupe for Bad Gal by Benefit or DiorShow. It won't flake, and you can 'build' it with 2-3 coats without experiencing clumping. I've tried 2 from the range I believe the superior was the one in the orange tube.

The two that I keep buying are Covergirl Lashblast Volume, and Maybelline The Falsies Flared! I've kind of given up on buying more expensive mascara, since these two, along with samples of higher end mascaras that I get, have served me well!

I love the green Cover Girl one. It layers really well. I can really built up my lashes with this, which is a must! I don't like any mascara that has the old brushes on them. I'm all about the rubber ones!

I love the Covergirl Lash Blast Mascara. It holds the curl really well and you build volume up without clumping. I do prefer Benefit's They're Real but not enough to justify the price jump.

    • You might be in shape otherwise but still have a lump of fat jutting out from under your chin. And we agree, that totally spoils all the photos. But why don't you use makeup to get rid of double chin till such time you lose enough weight to get a chiseled jaw line? So even if you haven't managed to shed all that extra flab yet, but have a party that you just can't miss, don't get upset about the double chin. You can still use makeup cleverly to hide it and look fabulous in all your photos. Here are some makeup hacks that will come in handy:
    • The trick to take care of dry skin is to feed it with moisture. But, there's a drawback, we cannot overfeed it as it may lead to breakouts, acne, and pimples. Therefore, it is important to use the right product that helps to hydrate the skin without much harm.  So how do we combat dry skin?  Here are our favourite and effective product that helps to fight the dry flaky skin.  Cosrx - Hyaluronic Hydra Power Essence Hyaluronic Acid is the king of moisturization and this essence by Cosrx is full of it. It draws water into the skin and immediately moisturizes the dry & depleted skin.  Results: Skin is softer and moisturized, leaving bumpy and dry skin silky smooth. It's excellent for dry to normal skin types.  Some By Mi-H7 Hydromax Moisture Cream The name uses the word hydro max moisture to convey that nothing hydrates better than this! It soothes skin irritation, reduces skin redness and wrinkles. It also has a whitening effect and smoothes rough patches of skin. The 7 types of hyaluronic acid fill in from the deepest layer of the skin and create a barrier so that it can maintain the optimum moisture for a prolonged time. Make sure to use it after cleansing the skin.  -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Face Masks are excellent for providing ample moisture and long term hydration to the skin.  Here are our recommendations: Eunyul- Natural Moisture Mask Pack Lined with green tea extract, the facemask works to provide ample moisture to the skin while the collagen helps to reboot the skin in a short time.  Missha-Airy Fit Sheet Mask (Cucumber) This eco-friendly rice cake sheet mask is 2 times thinner than a normal sheet mask. Cucumber helps to effectively help combat dryness while the thin sheet mask feels airy and lightweight. 
    • People tend to collect an amazing quantity of items over the years. Reasons for keeping items include an emotional attachment, an intention to reuse or fix the items in the future, or a wish to pass them on to others. However, for many items, if you haven't used them in over a year, you probably don't need them. Getting some help to get rid of all your rubbish isn't a bad move. Don’t want to do it yourself? These people have you covered. Leave all the heavy lifting work to them. With a professional firm like eMop, you don’t need to worry about the pick-up or disposal of those old items that you don't need any more.
    • In my opinion, Tinder is more like an application for finding a partner for one night. This is completely frivolous for me. If I look for a girl for myself, then I will start browsing serious sites. You can see an approximate review in this source. When a girl talks about marriage, this gives a better chance of a long and serious relationship.
    • Greetings! A variety of t-shirts are in fashion nowadays and I am going to share the most trendy ones: Plain White Tees - If you are thinking that plain white tees are getting out of fashion then you are wrong. Either you wear tuck tees with jeans or full sleeve plain white tees with jackets. They always look cool. Graphic T-Shirts - Yes, the craze of graphic tees is increasing not only in public but also among the celebs. Even the big brands like Nike and Gucci are also offering logo tees. You can also see some unique women graphic tees here. Colorful Dye T-Shirts - On the other hand, girls are also crazy to wear Dye t-shirts. You can see the following ones in this regard. What other tees trends do you think should females must follow in this regard? I am waiting for your responses and suggestions.
