Need a good mascara

My eyelashes are very light (I'm blonde) and barely visible on their own. I'm looking for a mascara that is preferably under $30, but I will be willing to spend more if it's really good. I've used covergirl and clinique in the past, and they just aren't making my eyelashes stand out as much as I'd like. Any advice is greatly appreciated! Thanks!

Re: Need a good mascara

my recommendation would be YSL baby doll in brown and the Shu curler - it looks like black would be too harsh for your coloring :smileyhappy:

 

Desert Rose i love you, but Benefit they're real blows, along with the entire benefit line - sorry :smileysad:  this is just MHO

 

the Guerlain is excellent too - i use it and the YSL - they expire in 3 months so try them one at a time

 

have fun!

Totally agree! I tried Benefit They're Real and Benefit Bad Gal Lash and I hated both! I almost bought Guerlain but I didn't like how difficult it was to get off. I like something that rinses off easily in the shower which is why Laura Mercier is perfect for me :smileyhappy:

I love Rimmel London's Scandal Eyes mascara (~$6) and Kat Von D's Sin-full lash mascara ($19).

Re: Need a good mascara

I also have very light lashes and recently I tried a bunch of popular mascaras (including Benefit They're Real, Too Faced Better than Sex, Guerlain Maxi Lash, Tarte Lights Camera Lashes amongst others) with volume and separation as the main things I was looking for. I FINALLY found one that I absolutely love but I hardly see anyone talk about. My new favorite is Laura Mercier Full Blown Volume Lash Building Mascara.

It's amazing! I bought a full size tube before I even finished the sample I had.

Re: Need a good mascara

So many choices! haha. But since you have light lashes as well, maybe this one would be a good option for me

If you need a splurge, I recommend the Guerlain Maxi Lash. It's $30 per tube, but it's amazing! I don't have a good picture of my own lashes, but a blogger (the Brightest Bulb in the Box) did a review on them, and I had the same results.

Re: Need a good mascara

wow! thank you. I'll look into that one as well.

Re: Need a good mascara

Thank you! I think I'll try the benefit one, and I like the idea of a small size to try it first. The lash stash set is a good idea too, so thank you for that even though I think I'll hold off on it for now

If you're birthday is coming up you can get a mini Benefit They're Real mascara for free! (as long as you're a beauty insider)

Re: Need a good mascara

It was actually back in January and I did receive one now that I think about it. Can't remember if I used it or not...... But thank you!

Re: Need a good mascara

What are you looking for in a mascara: lengthening, volumizing, or curling? Or a mix of all three?

Re: Need a good mascara

Out of the three, volumizing is probably most important to me, but lengthening would be nice too. Curling I don't really mind whether it does that or not.

Re: Need a good mascara

I really like Benefits They're Real mascara!  It has a great brush and the formula stays on my lashes all day without wearing off or smudging.  They have mini size available for $10 so you could try it out without commiting too much $.

Mascara seems to be a personal choice. I know I love some and other hate them. If I were you I'd consider picking the lash stash in Sephoras next promotion. I think they might be doing 20 off 50 or something. If not I think "they're real" are really popular.upload_9064016132393663750.jpg
