My Mascara Quest…

Eyelashes make a big difference to every makeup look. However you don’t notice it’s there till it’s not there.

For a couple of years, Maybelline’s Volume Express One by One mascara was my favourite. I still like it, but after trying another mascara and seeing a huge difference, I decided it was time to explore for a new one.

I wanted a mascara that defines, lengthens, and gives a lot of volume. The one I was using mostly defined, but didn’t give a lot of the other two. I researched and experimented a bit. I ended up with four (affordable) favourites….

*(When I say ‘definition’ I mean lash separation.)

This last one, Great Lash, I actually don’t like because of volume, length, or definition, but it is 100% waterproof. It’s even hard to take off without oil! It’s my #1 trusted summer product.

Many of these mascaras work best when mixed! (As in one coat of Illegal Length, and a second coat of Voluminous False Lashes.)

Eyes are probably the most important feature of your face. Give ’em all you can! Make them stand out!
