I’ve been in the middle of moving around these past several months while we wait for our house to be built, so it’s been crazy from week to week. I promise in a few weeks when we FINALLY get into our house I will be posting much, much more than I have been! I’ve been listening to your suggestions, and I will definitely get to all of them soon! One suggestion that I keep getting messages about are more Mascara reviews! I am just now getting to it because it takes awhile to work my way through several different tubes of mascaras, but I’m finally ready to review some more!
MILK MAKEUP Kush High Volume Mascara in Boom- Blackest Black
It retails for $24 at Sephora. I felt this mascara was just alright. I didn’t feel like I noticed anything special about it, which was disappointing. It’s a new product that I got from Sephora and I expected a lot out of this one because all of the reviews on Sephora’s website were all really good. Apparently everyone loves it but me. I feel like it’s overpriced for the result that I got. I like a lot of mascaras better that cost a lot less. It didn’t do much except darken and define a little. I didn’t notice any extra length, volume or curl. I rate it a 2/5.
Covergirl Lash Blast Clump Crusher Mascara
It retails for $6.69 at Target. The goal of this mascara is to give you length, thickness, and volume all while not leaving your lashes clumpy. I definitely didn’t notice any lengthening or volume, but I did notice some extra thickness. There were no clumps, but my eyes itched and burned all day long until the second I took it off. Overall I would say I don’t think it’s worth a try, and I’d save my money to try a different mascara. I rate it a 2/5.
Benefit Cosmetics BADgal Bang Volumizing Mascara
This mascara retails for $24 at Sephora. Overall I thought this mascara was a little better than average, but I’ve definitely used better. This mascara really did bring the volume! And the best part is that it can be layered without weighing you down. This picture is showing 2 layers of mascara, but I did add another a few hours after taking this picture. I noticed real length and lift, but it diminished after only a few hours for me, which is why I reapplied one more layer. I did like it though, and I will be using it again in the future! I rate it a 4/5.
Maybelline Volum’ Express The Falsies Mascara in Black
This mascara retails for $5.19 at Target. Truly the least impressive out of all that I tried this round. I noticed very little enhancement when wearing this mascara. I wouldn’t recommend it at all. Use that $5 and put it toward a different mascara. I rate it a 1/5.
Marc Jacobs Beauty Velvet Noir Major Volume Mascara
This mascara retails for $26 at Sephora. I really liked this mascara! I loved how my lashes didn’t feel crusty and heavy, but really natural and soft. I didn’t notice any flaking throughout the day, and the volume lasted all day long! It did help a little bit with the curl and lift, but I’ve seen better. This mascara was a close second this round of mascara trials. I rate it a 4/5.
L’Oréal Voluminous Lash Paradise in Mystic Black
This mascara retails for $8.99 at Target. By far my favorite out of this round of mascara trials. It is supposed to bring volume and length, while leaving your lashes feathery soft with its smooth glide formula. It does all of that! My lashes felt smooth and it didn’t leave black speckles on my cheeks from it crumbling throughout the day. The Mystic Black is beautiful, and it really does just glide on. I was impressed with the amount of volume and length it brought. Especially for the price you pay! I highly recommend this mascara! 5/5 for sure.
Tarte Lights,Camera, Lashes 4-in-1 Mascara
It retails for $23 at Sephora. I realllly liked this mascara the first few times I wore it and I thought it was one of my new favorites, but I noticed a ton of flaking about the 3rd time I wore it. I thought maybe it was just a bad tube but after reading reviews online, tons of other people were having the same issue. It was great when it didn’t flake, but when it did it caused lots of burning in my eyes. The lengthening and curling aspects were great for the first half of the day but then my lashes dropped down and I couldn’t get them to re-curl and stay curled. So I would say this mascara was great when it worked, but when it didn’t it was just annoying to have on. I’d rate it a 2.5/5.
I’m always looking for mascara recommendations to try next! I’d love to hear your suggestions in the comments below!
