Hope everyone had a nice, relaxing Memorial Day weekend! I was pretty slammed with clients but I’m definitely not complaining 🙂 Today I wanted to go over some of my favorite mascaras with you. There’s a mascara out there for everyone, whether you are looking to thicken, lengthen or curl. Read on for the Mascara All-Stars!
Revlon GrowLuscious Mascara: $7.99
This is my all-time favorite drug store mascara. As much as I love trying new beauty products, I don’t even bother anymore. I buy this time and time again. It conditions your lashes and helps them grow longer and thicker. I’ve noticed my lashes always look fuller when I go back to using this mascara. The brush is full and helps separate your lashes. There is a tapered end, making it easy to get to the nook-and-cranny corner lashes. It dries down to a velvety finish, leaving your lashes soft, not brittle.
I love this mascara for the innovative packaging. The squeeze tube keeps the mascara fresh- no more scraping the bottom for dry old mascara bits! The tube also helps you get every last bit of the product out, so more bang for your buck. The formula instantly lifts lashes for a 90-degree curl and definition. The brush has triple-tiered bristle clusters that are designed to plump up your lashes. What’s not to love? FYI this is only available online.
This mascara is pretty underwhelming when you first look at it. Simple packaging, it could easily be overlooked. But it has quickly become one of my all-time favorite mascaras. The formula is a quadruple threat: it gives your lashes curl, length, volume and intense pigment. One swipe of this stuff and your good to go. The tough, dense brush is designed to penetrate the roots of your lashes for complete “coatage.” This one is in heavy rotation in my home studio right now. It also comes in brown, green, dark blue and plum!
The spherical shape of this brush allows you to apply mascara from below, horizontally, vertically or diagonally. It helps reach every single lash from every single angle. Those of you with tiny-to-non-existant lashes will LOVE this stuff! Simply roll it along your lash line and poof! Your lashes will magically appear. This formula will extend and fix any lash problem. It’s also a great mascara to use along with your every day one, for additional “oomph.”
This is a three-step lash extension system that comes with an activation mascara and Flexistretch nylon fibers. How to use: 1) Prime- Apply a coat of the activating mascara (gold bottle) to give the nylon fibers something to stick to. 2) Build- apply 1-2 coats of the Flexistretch nylon fibers (white bottle). They will stick to the mascara on your lashes. Focus the fibers on areas that you want the most volume and length. 3) Seal: Apply one more coat of the ultra-black activation mascara to cover the fibers. This final coat surrounds each nylon-coated lash and melts the fibers into a long, thick, dramatic lash.
This is a great product for those of you who suffer from barely-there lashes because it adds to the lashes you already have by building them up.
