As mascara is the makeup product that has to be disposed of most frequently (every 3-6 months), it’s the product I’m least faithful to, and like to mix up and try different ones.
I’ve just started sing L’Oreal Carbon Black which claims to give you a ‘false lash effect’. I have to say the claims are a little over the top, and it does require multiple coats to achieve much longer, fuller lashes, but that done, they are definitely thicker and longer. This is what I have as my waterproof mascara (it’s swimming season here at the moment, and I hate panda eyes). I also wear waterproof mascara when I’m going to the chiropractor, otherwise after lying face down on one of those tables I end up with streaks on my cheeks.
My non-waterproof one at the moment is Benefit Bad Gal mascara, it doesn’t seem to give me the incredibly long and full lashes I really want, but it does the job OK.
Before this I was using L’Oreal Volume Shocking mascara – which is one of those ones with two ends, you put the white coat on first, then the dark coat. It definitely built up the volume and length of my lashes, which is great, but the reason I didn’t go with it again is that it annoyed me having to do both ends – am I just too lazy?
Previous to this I was sing Maybelline Define-a-Lash which was really good at separating lashes and making sure there was no clumping.
That’s as far back as I can remember – what is your favourite mascara?
