I love big, fluffy lashes - I don’t really care that much for length when it comes to my lashes but for volume. I think the volume is the key to make your eyes really hypnotic and mesmerizing. I've tried so many high-end, mid-priced and cheap mascara. Some don't lengthen enough, some don't add any volume, and some clump like crazy. And I generally get bored to use the same mascara so so I am constantly on a look out for a holy grail mascara.
Also, I always, always curl my lashes prior the application regardless of the mascara I'm using this really opens they eyes and makes bigger and brighter.
Here is my video featuring my top 5 mascaras that I am loving at the moment.
Urban Decay Perversion Mascara
I love the big plush brush of the Urban Decay Pervarsion Mascara - it provides volume or length to my lashesThe color is super black and looks great against any eyeshadow and it really brings out the color of my eye. It goes on rather wet, but dries down quite quickly. I find the mascara makes my eyelashes soft,it almost feels like a treatment The longevity of the formula is fantastic - no flaking, smudging whatsoever, it last all day long once applied.
Charlotte Tilbury Full fat Lashes Mascara
I am able to build and build this product up without any clumps forming and it lasts for a very long time. The mascara has a nice wand and does separate and pump up the lashes really nice and gives a nice curl and volume. The color is not the most intensive black I have seen, I rather would call it brown black. This one also leaves my lashes soft and conditioned, I never feel like they are gonna break by the end of the day. The downside is the prize for the product- at 29 Euro I find it rather steep and will only purchase on special occasions.
Max Factor Master Piece Mascara
This is a volumising mascara that also adds length. The wand for this mascara is unique - it's thin and slightly uptilted, it separates and lifts the lashes and if you hold the comb up for a few seconds at the tips of the lashes at the end of the sweep through, it does hold the curl. The only disadvantage is that it does make my lashes little bit hard.
New York Color Show Time Volumizing Mascara
This is a really good cheap mascara, that you can use on a daily basis. It has small brush with bristles and it gives my lashes enough length and volume for the natural look. My lashes didn't clump and the mascara also didn't crumble or flake on me all day long.
Yves Saint Laurent Volume Effet Faux Cils Mascara
The first time I used the YSL Volume Effet Faux Cils Mascara, I found that the formula was very wet and it clumped the bit. I was so disappointed, especially given the steep price. But once it dried out slightly the formula is amazing and very buildable - it literally makes me look like I am wearing false lashes. My lashes look thick and long and I also love the intense black color.
