Mascaras That Will Really Open Your Eyes
Like all makeup fiends, we have a handful of products that make us hear a chorus of angels because they’re so good. So good. And like many of you, it’s taken us ages to prime this collection of fantastic products so we’ve tried oh… we don’t know… a million or two products to find the ones near and dear to our hearts. From foundations to blushes, and eyeshadows to mascaras, there are a handful of products we’ve fallen in love with. There are also a handful we’d like to banish to never never land.
Below is a list of the mascaras that are angel chorus worthy, followed by those that have been banished.
1.) Our top mascara is Too Faced Better Than Sex mascara. It coats your lashes with such a deliciously clumpless layer. You can build this mascara up to thicken your lashes, separate them, and encourage them to curl. The name only amuses us further, making us reach for this mascara daily. Don’t let the price deter you; it’s so, so worth it!
2.) Urban Decay’s “Perversion” mascara comes in a close second. Packed with quick-dry mascara, this gem thickens lashes like no other. The tube will last you forever, too! Hey, who doesn’t like doll-thick eyelashes? There are many mascaras that claim they’ll help your lashes look fake, but Big Fatty plumps and lengthens like eye-lash steroids!
3.) Taking a step back and heading to the drug store, Loreal kicks some serious tail with their mascaras. Loreal’s Butterfly Effect mascara is fantastic if you’re looking for that fanned out shape. Sometimes we’ll use this on top of our Better than Sex for added oomph; alone, it’s fantastic too. Rich with color and a unique brush, Butterfly Effect wings your lashes out like a pro.
4.) Loreal comes in fourth again with their Telescopic mascara. We purchased this in a ‘brown-black’ color, hoping for a natural look. Natural look indeed! We all talk about how we’re looking for a lip color that is ‘my lips but better’, right? For a “my lashes but better”, look no further! Minimalists, this is your go-to.
5.) Surprise! Loreal again, here. Loreal Voluminous Miss Manga mascara wins the gold for volume and separation. For long, spindley lashes, get yourself on over to the Miss Manga mascara. The applicator is flexible, helping coat every single lash on your pretty little eyes. Almost like a volumizing mousse for your hair, this mascara still gives a natural look but gives you that extra somethin’ somethin’.
6.) Benefit ‘They’re Real’ caught our eyes in this whole gimmicky name phase. Okay, okay. Maybe it’s not a phase and we’re a sucker for a good name, but lemme tell you: sometimes gimmicky names yield fantastic products. With a brush similar to Big Fattie, They’re Real lengthens your lashes in an unbelievable way.
