Mascara Madness – The Best & Worst

After a long time of testing, trying, using, re-using and reviewing a good bunch of the most talked about mascaras, i’ve come to my final list of the Best & Worst.

This list is well thought out and has been in the making for months because i know how important a good mascara is for any girl, ages 10 to 100! I tested out drugstore mascaras and high ends to really expand my possibilities. I didn’t judge them based on price, i based my thoughts strictly on how good the product was overall.

So many factors can make a mascara “terrible” . For example, a mere clump or the shape of the wand can cancel out any fantastic formula.

TOP MASCARAS

1. Benefit There Real Mascara

2.Urban Decay Supercurl Curling Mascara

3. Lancome Hypnose Doll Lashes

4. Fairydrops Mascara

5. Giorgio Armani Eyes to Kill Mascara

6. Hourglass Film Noir Mascara

WORST MASCARAS

1. MAC Dazzle Lash Mascara

2. Sephora Advanced Lash Booster

3. Stila Forever Your Curl Mascara

4. BareMinerals Flawless Definition Volumizing Mascara

5.  Maybelline Volume Express, One by One Mascara

What keeps the Good from the Bad

WAND/BRUSH – the brush usually is more preference than anything, but all the top mascaras have a wand that not only adds length and volume, but doesn’t allow clumping.

When choosing a mascara brush, remember  the shorter bristles are meant for thickening and longer bristles are better for lengthening. If your eye lashes are thick & short, try a lengthening mascara. If your lashes are sparse and thin, try a thickening mascara.”

FORMULA- the formula needs to be well pigmented and needs special chemicals to allow the mascara to not dry out. Another important factor is the adhesives used for the most long lasting wear.

Formulas come in all ways for lengthening, volumizing and coloring. One must know their personal needs when knowing what formula will work best. 

***I personally don’t use Waterproof Mascara because it’s not needed and it’s a hassle to remove. Normal Mascaras have great resistance. Unless your going to be INSIDE of the water, i suggest a good, normal mascara!
