Okay, so this spring I shared with you guys my mascara woes. Woe is me, but I tried this mascara and it flaked off during court– all over a judges IPad. There are bigger problems in life, but it annoyed me so bad, it made me reassess my products.
After I shared this story on instagram, I was sent so many recommendations (THANK YOU!). I wanted to wrote down a list of all the recommendations you guys submitted, and tried them out. I finally tried them all (aside from one or two), and below are the results!
MOST RECOMMENDED MASCARAS
- Too Faced- Better Than Sex This one was by far the most recommended mascara. I can see why– it is amazing. This is my absolute favorite mascara. It lasted all day and made my lashes look fake. I would highly recommend this one
- Lash paradise from LOreal : This is the drug store knock off version of the Better Than Sex. I actually didn’t try this one! But it came highly recommended, so I’m sure it’s great.
DRUG STORE MASCARAS
- No7 Extreme Length Mascara: I liked this one a lot! I didn’t notice any flakes or anything like that!
- Soap and Glory- Thick and Fast Flash extensions effect mascara : This one was bomb. It thickened my lashes and didn’t flake either.
- Telescopic from L’Oreal: This one was ok. I didn’t love the tube it came in or the application stick. I used another mascara wand for it, and liked the product better!
- Beautycounter- Did not try this one!
- Inika Long Lash Vegan Mascara: Obsessed with this one. It goes on smooth, lasts all day, and makes my eyelashes look thick. It does not flake either. I got it from Ajs Wicked Salon & Spa
HIGHER END MASCARAS
- Benefit– They’re Real: did not try this one.
- Marc Jacobs Velvet Noir Major: love this one! It went on smooth. The application wand was not my favorite, but the product was great.
- Estee Lauder Sumptuous Extreme: I love this one a lot. It made my lashes look dark and thick and it didn’t flake. It goes on smooth, too.
You guys sent some amazing recommendations. Overall, my favorite mascara out of all of these is probably the Better Than Sex, or The Inika Long Lash Vegan Mascara. They were honestly a tie. TheBetter Than Sex gave me more volume, but I just an eyelash curler with the Inika Long Lash Vegan Mascara, and it worked just as well!
Thanks for reading!
