From cult classics to new launches, these are my forever FAVORITES. When we buy mascara we all have different expectations, personally I have long natural lashes and all I want is to highlight this feature and give it maximum volume. Each mascara is different, so let me give you a humble tour of the ones I have on repeat lately!
This mascara is simply the best most expensive I have ever had and bought… I will lift up your lashes, give it a shiny vinyl effect and no need to put a lot of the formula making it one of quickest mascara to apply! Apart from the quality of the product, I admire the beauty of the packaging, it’s quite heavy and I will probably never throw the tube away. Like any of the beauty products from Louboutin, it was created to show off.
Volume guaranteed, it will elegantly dress your eyes and never let you down. I remember it as being my first mascara, I did not have a lot of money and still went for it twice a year because I loved the packaging and the way it sublimated my eyes. It has powerful defining and thickening properties. The brush design can reach the shortest lashes which is a bonus! I used it for years before switching for Estée Lauder…
The famous Sumptuous Extreme, will forever be a must have in my beauty room. It instantly lifts your lashes like no other mascara, and gives you that next level drama volume effect! The formula is great and the mascara completely dries once applied while leaving the lashes flexible. I still buy it from time to time to say hello to my favorite sales advisors at Printemps Lyon.
If Volume with a capital letter is not enough for you, I suggest you give this bad boy a try! More always more, that’s what they had in mind when creating this formula. Enriched with Provitamin B5, this water-proof mascara will a second life to your lashes and a 36 hours volume defying the laws of gravity! The travel version never leaves my handbag…
The Mascara for the girls on-the-go! I discovered the brand a few years ago in Paris, and I was impressed to say the least. The packaging is on point, you just press the tube to avoid waste. The formula is a botanical-fueled energizing shot for ‘sleepy lashes’, infused with caffeine, Biotin to thicken and a proper dose of fibres. It contains shea butter to nourish, arginine to repair and the full contact helix brush follow the curve of your every lashes to give them top volume. What else can we ask from a mascara?
For eye lashes that hit the ceiling! This vegan mascara comes with a warning and rightfully so, it is not for the faint-hearted. It’s called Caution Extreme Lash for a reason. One dip in the tube is enough to get both sets of lashes attaining great heights coated in the wet, patent-black formula. Surely one of the best discoveries I’ve made this year! The dramatic curve it gives your lashes is probably the closest to what you’ll get in a salon.
I really like Clinique mascaras in general they never disappoint, so I had to make a hard choice and chose to recommend this one in particular since it is the most different from my list so far. It has a lightweight, mousse-like formula, conditioning oils to keep your lashes healthy and an innovative curling polymers shape that hold lashes in place.
To be honest, apart from the fact that mine has my name engraved on the tube it really is a great investment! If you have sparse lashes and you’re looking for drama, this will be your new go-to. It plumps and thickens in just one sweep.It promises ‘Spectacular’ volume, and it does give you exactly that. A black, sleek and stylish packaging for lashes just as lush, feathery and intensely black!
Probably THE mascara I got the most questions about on Instagram! This bestselling, vegan mascara lengthens, curls, volumizes, and conditions acting like a push-up bra for lashes! What I love most about it, is that the effect still remains quite natural with one or two coats which is exactly what I aim for!
Last but definitely not least… I finally got my hands on the famous and most talked about mascara in the beauty sphere. Is it better than sex? No. Is it one of the few mascaras I know of that won’t sacrifice length at the expense of full volume? Yes. Will it make you look like the hottest woman in the room? Yes it will!
This article is not sponsored, I bought most of the mascaras I presented here and some of them have been gifted. My opinion is as honest as it can be and I hope it will help some of you make the right decision when it comes to mascara!
