There isn’t a girl on the planet who hasn’t looked at herself in the mirror and wish they had thicker or longer lashes.
Longer thicker eyelashes have always been one of the most difficult aspects of beauty for women to overcome. This is because some women don’t have long or thick eye lashes, most women are born with thin brittle eyelashes and that is a problem most women have to deal with. The good news is that there are many ways to give the appearance of long beautiful lashes. You can wear eyelash extensions, or if you prefer you can use mascara. “Mascara” is the most important tool to complete the look of your beautiful eyes. Longer eye lashes make your eyes looks bigger and open, they show your health as well as your mood. But do you like natural eye lashes, no make up look or a sophisticated look, obvious mascara or even chunky lashes ala Tammy Faye?
But too much use of mascara, eyelash perming as well as frequent eyelash curling, can be very damaging to eyelashes. It can cost in eyelashes breaking and even falling out. Also, there is a disease called trichotilliomania which can cause your eyelashes to break, so you have to be very careful with your eyelashes. Eyelashes take up to 4 – 6 weeks in order to grow back, however we naturally we lose between 1 – 4 eyelashes a day.
But what is the best mascara? This is one of the most frequent questions most women ask. But it will be my pleasure to give you a simple answer with a specific brand and formula to go purchase. But keep in mind that there is no such thing as one mascara that is best for everyone. The truth is there’s a perfect mascara out there for everyone! You just have to know what best describes your lashes without makeup or what you need and what each tube offers.
That’s where the mystery is and why we get so confused! There are so many different types of mascara and there is definitely a difference.
We all know the difference mascara can make on a day when we aren’t feeling so hot, but sometimes many of us have no idea how to apply the mascara properly to get the look of a movie-star or maybe we just don’t know how to pick the right one.
I am a huge Mascara freak, I buy a new mascara at least every 2 weeks just to try it out. I will review a few of the ones that are very cheap for your pocket and that has worked for me. I am going to start out with.
Maybelline Lash Stiletto $7.49
After discontinuing Maybelline’s illegal lengths mascara, which was one of my favorites, I miss it so much however Maybelline has this one, It’s not the same but It’s similar.
If you’re a fan of Definicils mascara you will love this one, my lashes did not gain that much volume like they said in the commercial, but they did get long lengths, to give the illusion of longer lashes. You should look for a lengthening formula with a small and very skinny brush.
These mascaras with their small applicator brush have a watery formula that just paints the lasher as they are, like this mascara that has a small applicator brush.
Cover Girl Lash Blast Mascara $7.99
This mascara thickens your lashes as promised, provides great lash separation.
You will like the formula and also how it lengthens them and holds the curls very well.
It gives your lashes that clean, long, clump free look you can just build and build and your lashes will be perfectly done.
Maybelline Great Lash Mascara $ 5.59
I personally did not like this mascara that much. When you first use this one, it feels like it stings your eyes a little bit, but that’s because of the minty, cooling, “flavour” it gives you and also because it’s supposed be a cooling effect on your eyes.
It’s a very cheap mascara, Maybelline comes in several colors available. It’s a basic, classic mascara and can be found at any drug store. I don’t use it any more, but there’s no reason for it, just moving on for better changes.
Revlon Grow Luscious Mascara $7.69
This mascara is one of my favorites. It instantly plumps your lashes for maximum volume. This mascara is always in my makeup bag. I wear this one to my normal daily routine confidently, and I love how it pops and really opens up my eyes, and gives it that thick look.
A thickening formula that is literally a thicker and often drier formula of ingredients to give the illusion of adding several coats at once. For best results, the best ones have a very full applicator brush. These formulas are a favorite for most of the women.
L’Oreal Voluminous Mascara $8.99
This one is the best selling from L’Oreal and definitely another one I extremely love. I try so many mascaras over the years, and I always really like the classic Loreal Voluminous formula. It gives great volume. If you love thicker eyelashes this is your mascara.
A little tip for you: Women with thick hair that is hard to curl often have the same problem with their eyelashes, some mascara formulas are so heavy that the weight of them can easily make a freshly curled lash droop in seconds. Some Mascaras that claim to actually curl the lashes are often just fast drying mascaras. Try heating up the eyelash curler for a few seconds with a blow drier before curling lashes. Heat is known to set hair better and keep a curl. So be extremely careful not to use the blow drier long enough to heat the metal part of the lash curler, some women that try this trick for the first time have occasionally burned themselves.
Here is a tip for your record: You are only supposed to keep your mascara for no longer them two month, and wen you use your mascara every time you remove the brush do not pump it, because bacterias gets in to the tube and you can get a lovely ping eye, instead of pump it, gently move it around inside the tube.
Now that you have some basics, get out there and see what mascara formula looks best on you!
