Mascara Nightmares! HELP.

(0) Hearts

Hi Everyone, So lately I have been sick of changing mascaras soooo many times and it pains me to say but I can't do it anymore! HELP. I have been thinking about trying Benefits They're Real! Mascara. Any recommendations on mascaras?

I always keep coming back to Cliniques Lash Doubling (it seems to work on everyone I've tried it on) and Lancomes Definicils.

If you want a waterproof thickening mascara, I suggest Clinique's volumizing mascara. Sometimes my allergies are REALLY bad and my eyes will water 24/7. When that happens, this is the mascara I use. 

It's waterproof, does not clump, really thickens my lashes, and comes off easily with eye makeup remover. Love it!!

you should try Sephora's Outrageous Volume Mascara.. I do the same thing and go from mascara to mascara. Another nice one is YSL Mascara Volume Effet Faux Cils Babydoll. The Benefit They're Real Mascara is just okay, but I think it dries out too soon.

Have you tried a lash primer? Lancome's keeps the mascara in place and lashes look fuller.

 

Or try a tubing mascara.

No I haven't. I will definitely have to try that!

Ugh, I feel your pain! Personally, I've found two that seem to be unconditional winners:

 

bareMinerals Lash Domination mascara

MUFE Smoky Extravagant mascara 

 

(MUFE is my HG, but if you prefer a plastic bristle brush, go for bareMinerals. I love, love both, I just prefer the synthetic bristle brush, frankly.)

I definitely don't need  lengthening, my eyelashes already reach to my eyebrows almost on their own. But I do want a waterproof thickening mascara.

I use different mascaras for different levels of lash intensity. What exactly do you want out of your mascara? Do you want waterproof, lengthening, thickening, etc?

 

I have the They're Real! mascara and it's basically my special occasion mascara for when I want my lashes to look really thick and long and well, fake, haha. It's not a waterproof formula though and it can be a pain to get off (you'll need a really good eye makeup remover and some patience). I still love it a lot however. For day to day I prefer Benefit's Bad Gal mascara or Dior's Extase.

Okay for drugstore I love the Covergirl flamed out waterproof mascara. It really thickens and curls for me but I don't get much length.

 

For high end the Buxom waterproof mascara really seemed to thicken for me.
