Ladies, what is your favorite brand of mascara?
Do you stick to one brand in particular or do you venture out occasionally?
I’m interested in knowing because i’ve struggle with finding just the right brand of mascara for years and this without having to put a small dent in my pocket. By a small dent i mean, anything above $12. Now don’t be mistaken, i do believe in spending money on good lasting cosmetics, i just think mascara should be the exception.

Here’s a little back story for you: for years i used anything Cover Girl but i was never fully satisfied. I then moved on to VOLUMINOUS by Loreal but was left longing for more. Next was Maybelline Great Lash Mascara and it was miraculous! I’ve never seen my lashes so full and thick. I was sold… until it also gave me the biggest eyelid allergy ever. It was as if a bee had stung me. This was almost 7 years ago and since then i’ve been afraid of using it again. More convincing was when a friend admitted to having similar problems. Scary.
I soon moved on too ALMAY for its hypoallergenic features but as far as giving my lashes length and volume, well, it was a fail. Finally on to Max Factor i went, a brand i stuck with for a while but soon grew tired of. Truth is i missed the effect i was getting from Maybelline and so i decided to give it another go. Afterall seven years is a long time non.
So here i am again a fan of Maybelline Great Lash Mascara – three months in use and not one single allergy. I think we have a winner here. But still, i would love to know if there’s another product out there i should also give the benefit of the doubt. I would love to get some feedback on this. I did try a sample stick of LANCOME and let me tell you i used it only on special occasions because it was heavenly. Should i give it a full go?

  1. Okay so I use MAC Plush Lash mascara. I too tried all different types mascaras and flip flopped with using a cheaper/expensive brand but never got the same result. So I went back to using MAC which is what I started with when I really started wearing makeup.

    Desrip: Plumps, curls and volumizes. Builds thickness smoothly and evenly, delivering a full fan of lashes. Rich, hydrating formula. No smudging or clumping. A patented brush wraps lashes one luxurious layer at a time for immediate, intense drama.

    It's $15.00 but well worth the money

  3. Really? Wow, thanks. I love MAC products and actually most of my cosmetics comes from MAC… just never imagined to also include their mascara. And $15 is not a terrible price.

    Thank you so much. I will definitely look into it.
