If you could only have one mascara for the rest of your life.. what would it be?

Recommended Posts

Okay, so I've tried hundreds of mascaras, but find that only a select few I actually find myself reaching for again and again until they've dried up and look like a breeding ground for conjuctivitis germies. Ew. 

 

I am a big fan of small, narrow plastic wands. Big, poofy round ones just don't work for me. I feel like I'm getting the product everywhere except where it's meant to go. 

 

Rimmel Glam Eyes is a must have for me. The wand is perfect for my taste and the packaging is really cute pink and black. Ah, its gorgeous. 

 

However... Mac Plush Lash does wonders for my lashes, and I don't understand why I can use a wand that big and poofy and make it work for me, but if I use any other mascara with a wand bigger than the size of a needle I come away looking like I've been in a punch-up with Kung Fu Panda. 

 

I'm always interested in what other people make of different mascaras and what works for them. If you have any tips for me on how to apply mascara using a bigger wand then please please please share them before I lose my patience and throw them away!

My all time favorite mascara is Make Up For Ever Smokey Lash, but since it's so expensive I dont always have it. It is like false eyelashes in a tube. This stuff is amazing! My go to drug store mascara is probably still Covergirl Lash Blast, although I have been trying several lately.

 

As far as tips for applying mascara... I dont really know. Go slow? I have really long lashes and my only concern for mascara is volume! So I just rock my wand back and forth, and usually do a couple coats to get that look.

If I had to choose just one, it would probably be Benefit They're Real. My tube somehow got lost which I'm super upset about because I don't have another $23 to spend on mascara right now...oh well. My second go-to, L'Oreal Double Extend will have to do for now.

I'll join the other ladies and say Benefit's They're Real. My drugstore brand has been Maybelline's Colossal mascara.. I bought two new ones to try today though (side note: I spent $120 something at my local CVS today on mostly makeup products!! I've never spent that much at a drugstore before lol yikes)

They're Real used to be my HG..until I tried CoverGirl Lashblast. It gives the same effect and holds my curl all day (They're Real doesn't do that for me), and has a 'gentler' wand. The one in They're Real is kinda harsh on my eyelids. It's too hard and poke-y for me. Lashblast also dries a little slower -- so I can work it through my lashes better.

My favorite is Guerlain Noir G, the formula AND the brush are absolutely fantastic. It's sooo out of my budget, but I find it to be totally worth it. I know that the mascara's shelf life is 3 months after it's been opened, but since it's so expensive I usually stretch it out to at least 6.

    • We have rounded up not one, but five easy ways to draw that fine stroke of liner on your lid. You can use your pencil, liquid, gel or pen eyeliners and try out any of these five ways to apply eyeliner like a pro. So grab your eyeliner and take a look at five different ways to work the stunning eyeliner look in one go.     
    • Steaming at home: A good steamer does not have to be available at the spa. You can bring home the best facial steamer and have a great steaming session at the comfort of your home. All you have to do is to follow the right set of rules to get high-end results. Bring home the best facial steamer from the store. Read the user manual carefully. Before you turn it on, give your face a good wash and do not apply anything. Keep your hair away from the face by neatly wrapping it. Use normal tap water inside the steamer, turn it on, and wait for vapours to arise. Keep the steamer almost 6-8 inches away from your face. Align your face to get the steam vapours. Take the steam vapours for a minute and move your face away from it for half a minute. Continuously taking the steam over the face may leave your skin burnt. Start off your cleansing session and pull out all the black and whiteheads. Dab a clean towel to remove the water droplets on your face and then apply a good moisturizer. Choose a facial steamer with the quickest start-to-steam option. This makes it the best facial steamer. Have a steam session, not more than once in a week as over steaming your facial steam can make it dry or burn it. Moisturize skin immediately after a good steam session to trap moisture and make the skin hydrated.
