UPDATED MASCARA ROUTINE, NEW FAVES?

There used to be a time in my life where I was obsessed with mascara, loved trying new ones and finding the most perfect formula for my lashes. I, unfortunately, am not blessed with beautiful long lashes so it can be tricky to find a mascara which holds the curl well. Nowadays, I typically apply fake lashes because WHY NOT. I love that extra amount of drama to my eyes! I have tried so many mascara both drugstore and high end including Dior, Benefit Cosmetics, Too Faced, IT Cosmetics, Maybelline, and many more. But I find myself always reaching for the same ones each and every time. I believe last year I did review the Dior and L’Oréal Miss Manga mascara and L’Oréal was the better formula but this year I have fallen in love with another mascara.

BOTH

My go-to mascara for my top lashes is the “L’Oréal Voluminous Butterfly Sculpt”. No disrespect to the “Miss Manga” mascara, that will always be a favourite. The Butterfly Sculpt formula is amazing, not too running and not too drying either. But what is really amazing is the wand. This wand is quite innovative. The bristles do not go all the way around, instead stop halfway and there is a nice edge where the bristles end. This will all make more sense when you look at the picture down below. What the edge allows you to do is really get to the root of your lashes and coat as much as you can to ensure the most volume. With this edge, you can kind of get a tight line effect which only helps to make you lashes look more full. I need all the help I can get in the lash department, since mine aren’t the most noticeable without mascara.

For my lower lashes I do use a different product, only because I find that some mascaras can bleed on your lower lash line and just create an unnecessary mess. I use the “Wet n Wild MegaLengeth Mascra”, I love this wand for my lower lashes because it’s so small and thin it coats my lashes perfectly without getting on my under eye area. Isn’t that just the worst when you’re almost done your makeup and mascara just makes a mess everywhere and you have you in with a cotton swab and salvage everything?

Both these mascaras are awesome and very well priced. I’ve learned that just because a mascara is $40, it doesn’t mean it’ll do wonders. I do tend to stick to my drugstore faves but of course there are some amazing higher end favourites, such as “Too Faced Better Than Sex”.

Prices, without tax or shipping, for the products mentioned (CAD):

  • L’Oreal Voluminous Butterfly Sculpt: $10
  • Wet n Wild MegaLengeth Mascra: $6

Until Next Time!

Dior or L’Oreal Mascara?

Looking for a Mascara? Don’t be fooled by the price. I recently purchased the Dior Blackout Mascara, which sells for $31 plus tax from Sephora, and my first impression of it was not good. The formula is excessively creamy and does not keep your lashes up, even when curled. I do not have the fullest of lashes but I thought this mascara would bring them out since the colour is extremely black. When I first used it, I took it off immediately because it did nothing to my lashes. Taking it off was difficult and messy!  The only positive thing about this mascara was the packaging and the intensity of the colour.

Ready  1The packaging is simple and chic, two of the best combinations for makeup.

If you’re looking for a good mascara try the L’Oreal Voluminous Miss Manga. This mascara has a great formula for keeping your lashes up and costs less than half of what Dior would cost you. This has become has everyday choice for mascara.

IMG_1308The formula is amazing! It keeps my lashes looking good all day. Taking it off at the end of day is a breeze. In terms of makeup remover I stick to my Quo! The Quo eye makeup remover is gentle and effective.

The expensive makeup isn’t always the best. Never underestimate drugstore brands. Sometimes you just might find the perfect product for you! I would give the Dior Blackout Mascara a 2 out of 10, just because the cololur is intensely black but nothing else about this mascara is good. I would not recommend this product to anyone. I would definitely rate the L’Oreal Miss Manga mascara a 10/10, I absolutely love it!
