Mascara Crisis

 

I’m having a mascara crisis!

Okay, that’s putting it rather dramatically, but really, I’m about done with my current brand of mascara.

I could swear they have done something to it to make it dry out quicker over the last half a year.  Either that or I’m slathering it on way thicker than before, but I don’t think so.  Usually I can make a tube of mascara last a while, but I have to buy a new one every couple of months lately because it’s either running out or drying out.

That combined with the fact that I’ve been getting mascara flakes under my eyes for the last week and a half (which usually doesn’t happen), and I’m ready to try a new brand.

So.  What mascara do you use?  I’m buying some new stuff today and I need recommendations!

I love maybelline lash stylist. The little wand makes it easy to get all my lashes, but it's nt a lengthening (which I don't like/want in my mascara). I also find it fairly easy to wash off.

I use Maybelline XXL Volume mascara and its the only kind I've tried that doesn't flake off under my eyes. There's a white primer that goes on first and then you put on the black coat. Despite having two steps, it goes on fast and I love it!!!

My favorite is a natural mascara by Mineral Fusion - LOVE it! (And, I was using the same one you were using, the Stiletto).

Cover Girl Lash Blast!! It's an orange tube (there are other options but that one works the best for me). It never flakes off but comes off easily when I start picking at them at night so I don't pull out any eye lashes (waterproof mascara does not work so good for this). I tried so many kinds before trying this kind and I will never go back unless they change how they make it.

Ha, I did a post like this, didn't get much response but I've tried a ton of mascaras! The Maybelline Plush is the newest I've tried, it's great so far. Falsies is good, Colossal is good. There is also a Loreal one that I used, that had the white side & black side, love that one! Good luck!

Finding a good mascara is hard. Lately I've been using Cover Girl professional remarkable mascara (in the purple tube) and it's been great! It's lasted a long time, and never clumps or anything. I'd been really striking out on finding a good mascara, and bought this one simply because it was on sale, and I love it!

Ok, it's silly that I haven't commented on your other post yet, but this one is an emergency I'm sure! :) I just got Covergirl LashBlastLuxe in the Black Cabernet color - it's kindof a brown-black color and it has SHIMMER! which I think is so cool! Not overwhelmingly shimmery, just nice and summer-like!

I really like the Covergirl Lashblast!

It's pricey, but I use Blinc Mascara (available at Sephora). It lasts much longer than the cover girl I used to use, so the cost ends up being about the same for me. It NEVER flakes. It never irritates my eyes (which is big because I have lots of allergies and sensitive eyes). And it's waterproof but comes off super easy (which sounds crazy...but true)! I always wore waterproof before for the most part because I ended up with flakes and stuff IN my eyes and too much irritation. But waterproof is SUCH a pain to take off. I'd do my best at night but almost every morning would still wake up with raccoon eyes. You won't e disappointed if you give it a try. Read up on it at least. It's a new technology that actually forms tubes around your lashes instead of painting them.

I use Blinc. You can find it at Sephora. It is pricey, but it lasts a lot longer than any other mascara I've tried (used to use Cover girl or Maybelline). It's made using a new technology that actually forms water resistant TUBES of mascara around your eyelashes instead of painting them. And it's great for sensitive eyes and contact wearers. I have always had trouble with mascara irritating my eyes. Some days I have to just go without it if my allergies are really bad. But not anymore! I never get flakes. And I typically use waterproof because of my allergies and such, but it's such a pain to take off...I almost always still end up with raccoon eyes in the morning. But not with Blinc. Comes off SO easy. Actually, it's so weird looking when it comes off that I REALLY enjoy taking it off (is that weird?). Even if you pass on it because of the price, at least look it up and read up on it. Very cool stuff.

I love using Clinique Lash Doubling Mascara. I love it and it never flakes off. It's a bit pricey ($12-15), but I feel like it's so worth it since we spend most of the days at work looking down. It lasts me about 6mos though. Hope you find something that works!

Girl, i went on a mascara hunt for awhile there... i finally discovered "Lash Love" by Mary Kay. Now, I'm not a Mary Kay gal... i mostly wear Clinique & Maybelline. But my sis-in-law sells MK & put the Lash Love on me for a facial thing she needed to do (I let her use me as a model). Anyway, i fell in LOVE. Makes me lashes SO LONG!! And it doesn't smear! Yet it comes off easily when i want it to. I love it.

I am not sure how long it lasts, though... I just haven't noticed! I'm on my second tube... and it's been quite awhile since i discovered it!

I saw on pinterest that if you add a few drops of saline to your mascara it will last forever! I recently discovered revolons 3d photoready mascara and at first wasnt in love but now I am!

Jennifer said...

I have been using cover girl lashblashluxe for awhile now but I don't really like it anymore and now wanting to find a new mascara too! Let me know if you find one you love!

Melanie said...

I have been using L'Oreal Voluminuous Million Lashes since Christmas and really like it! Look forward to hearing what you ended up getting so I know if its any good for the next mascara purchase I make! I like trying new ones!

Diana Hill said...

I know it is more expensive but i have used Cliniques's naturally glossy mascara for years and i love it! I don't wear (or buy) much make up but I always have ot have on mascara!!

Jennifer said...

I just bought Benefits There're real mascara and am so far really loving it!!

Jen said...

Stopping by from Jenna's. I know you've probably already bought your mascara, but I love, love, love Bare Escentials Flawless Definition Volumizing mascara. I was a make-up junkie before I had my daughter, and I've stuk with this brand (but trying out each new mascara and loving it even more than the last) since 2005. :)

I use Mary Kay's Lash Love mascara and I LOVE it! You should actually change out your mascara every 3-4 months due to germs, etc. :) Hope you find a new one!
