My Favorite Mascaras

Drugstore or high-end, I’ve probably tried it! Mascaras are like lipstick for me…I just can’t stop trying different ones. However, there is one mascara that always wins my heart…and it’s drugstore.

For starters, let’s talk about my lashes. Mine are decently long and nor thin or thick. Basically I like anything lengthening and thickening, which isn’t always easy to find.

Best Thickening Mascara

Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara

This mascara is hardcore thickening! If you have thin lashes, you probably only need one coat as it could weigh them down. However, I typically use this as a second coat for an added wow factor. If I’m going out with friends, I’ll wear two coats of this. Hello lashes!

Best Lengthening Mascara

Urban Decay’s Perversion Mascara

This is a perfect mascara for the work day and it can be layered into luxurious lashes. If you like your lashes to look long, with added depth, but still soft to the touch, this is your mascara. Plus, the tube lasts forever it seems!

Best Bold Effect Mascara

L’Oreal’s Telescopic Lashes

I remember using this years ago and totally forgot about it. If you are looking for a one-coat wonder, then look no further. This mascara has a unique brush (comb-like) that grasps all your lashes into a sky-high effect. Don’t expect to let your lashes dry and add a second coat though…this hardens and keeps your lashes in place. One coat will definitely do the trick though!

Best Thickening and Lengthening Mascara

L’Oreal Voluminous Mascara

I have used this for YEARS. I actually got started on it because it was what my mom always used. This. mascara. is. AMAZING. What I like about this mascara is that it somehow extends the lash yet thickens it at the same time. Plus, this mascara is wet, but not too wet, so you can still add layers if need be. Did I mention it’s under $7?

Britt Tip: For long lashes, curl your lashes before applying mascara. Apply mascara and follow with a second coat. Wait 5 minutes before curling. Curl your lashes, holding for a few seconds for best results.

Until next time!
