I have been trying a few mascaras lately and ended up with ones that could potentially fit each person’s need.
I do have long lashes of my own and just love to make them thick and bold. I cannot understand how people like that green and pink Maybelline mascara so much that I once heard it was a world’s best seller (!!!) I tried it once and I couldn’t find it more boring (sorry guys!), but that’s something really personal. Guess I’m the minority who likes their lashes almost a little clumpy (but just a little!).
First one I got was the BareMinerals Lash Domination. It claims to be a volumizing mascara that also lengthens, tickens, separates, lifts, resists clumps and fight flakes. I wasn’t really happy with the fact that it does not clump a little (!!) and doesn’t really deliver the thickening promise, but this mascara can really lengthens. So it might suit you!
Second one I got it was a real bargain of 2.99 euros in a Pharmacy in Paris. I was a bit skeptical as I had never heard of that brand before (and you won’t probably find it easily) but it surprised me. Extra volume is not exactly what it delivers, but a combination of ok volume and length. It’s nor thick or thin, just a perfect combination of a bit of everything. I easily wear this on my day to day makeup for a nice yet discrete look. Alternatively I would say this is a dupe of the Maybelline Colossal.
Lastly I purchased the KIKO Milano VolumEyes+ as referred by a friend. KIKO was new to me, I had never tried any of their products before but started noticing more stores opening around Paris while I was still there. Went to check it out and was also positively surprise by the good price and good quality of their products. Now this mascara is amazing!! It gave me that volume I like, and it’s easy to apply. It says it has a K2 Prolash Complex that will thicken the diameter of your lashes after 30 days of use, but I don’t really know nor rely on that. All I can say is that this is my favorite one out of the three just because gives me that perfect full lashes look!
So this one just joined my TOP 3 Volumizing Mascaras:
- L’Oreal Lash Architect (all time favorite)
- KIKO Milano VolumEyes+ – now second on the rank
- L’Oreal Voluminous Original
What are your favorite mascaras??
