Magnificent Must Have Mascara (For all price ranges)
Lashes, Lashes and More Lashes ! I do in fact think it is my life’s mission is to own every-mascara-ever-made, and I am well on my way to making that possible (laughs). Lucky for you, I get to help take some of the foot work out having to buy mascara after mascara to no avail. After assisting a few girl friends get ready for an event recently and was asked the question “With all the mascara you own, Which ones are the best?” I decided to plunge in the deep depths of my makeup cases and test out each and every one of the mascaras; this is the list that I have compiled in my findings.
1. Wet & Wild Mega Volume Mascara
2. NYX Za Za Zu Mascara
3.M.A.C. Cosmetics Haute & Naughty Mascara
4.Make Up Forever Smokey Lash Mascara
5.Marc Jacobs Gel Definition Mascara
Wet & Wild Mega Volume – $3.00
This little gem retails for about 2.99 I purchased mine at Walgreens. I was hesitant to purchase this mascara because I figured the quality would match the price tag, boy was I wrong. This mascara is one of my go to mascaras to take with me in my purse. It really does lengthen and volumeize your lashes and for the cute price of three dollars I toss it in my purse not afraid of losing it.
NYX Za Za Zu Mascara – $6.00
NYX Cosmetics recently came out with their “Boudoir Mascara Collection” which features 7 different mascaras that are very different from each other. Faux Lashes, La Amoureux, Le Chick Flick, Le Frou Frou, Pin-Up Tease, Provocateur and my choice Za Za Zu. Each one of these are great products but what prompted me to choose Za Za Zu over the other mascaras is its overall effect on my lashes. Not only did it give me that extra length that we desire but it lifted, and volumized like none of the others did.
M.A.C. Cosmetics Haute & Naughty $21.00 (Personal Favorite)
People let me tell you about my bestttttt frienddddd (Singing) ! I have to say hands down my favorite mascara ever made is this super girlie get up by M.A.C. Cosmetics. Haute & Naughty mascara isn’t just one mascara it’s 2, literally. When you open the first top which is pink that mascara gives you a solid look; minimal volume but great length. I say this is clean enough for work or a daytime brunch look. The 2nd mascara you will find when you open the purple top is nothing short of perfection. I like to use this mascara to replace false eyelashes on the nights that I’m just not up to wearing falsies. Great volume, really good length and it makes your lashes BIG .
Make Up Forever Smokey Lash $24.00
I found out about this product while attending a Make Up Forever Pop-Up shop here in Las Vegas on the far end of the south strip. I went in to purchase a new powder foundation and was given demonstrations on a few products by the wonderful makeup artist Sarah Purney. I purchased my foundation and with it came a little bag that included the smokey lash mascara. By far this mascara gives me the best length. It runs about a medium on the volume side but it pulls those lashes to incredible lengths. A definite must have if you love long lashes.
Marc Jacobs Gel Definition $ 30.00
When I first heard of this product I thought hmm… Marc Jacobs defining mascara… I will get around to purchasing it, eventually. I figured I already had my haute and naughty let’s play it safe until it does me wrong. Thanks to one of my close friends who works in the industry as a stylist and makeup artist Silver Reid I was gifted this beautiful defining mascara. The base is a lot different than your typical mascara, it is a gel. When applying it pulls your lashes out with the first application and if you wait a min then apply a 2nd coat you have these beautiful and almost elegant lashes. This product completely lives up to its name. It gives you beautiful full length lashes with absolutely no clumps or spider lashes. This is my favorite to use as a blender when wearing falsies.
