Once upon a time, I was obsessed with buying mascaras. Nowadays, the hype has died down a bit and it’s been a long time since I’ve bought one myself, a lot of mine are now sample sizes or competition wins. Mascara is still an important step in my makeup, however as I think it really finishes off a look, really opens up my eyes and also makes me look more awake and ready to take on the day thanks to my 6 am weekday wake up calls! (yawn!) My favourite mascaras give my lashes length, definition and a nice curl that holds. These are 5 I’m currently loving..
Smashbox X-Rated Mascara |
My current go-to, I love this mascara! It really gives my lashes such volume, definition and it can be buildable. Whether you want a nice, subtle everyday look or intense volume for a night out, this is easily achievable. It’s one of the best mascaras I’ve ever tried. One for anyone who likes definition and dramatic volumised lashes for an evening look.
Urban Decay Perversion Mascara |
The one for anyone who likes the look of ‘feathery’ lashes. This gives me the most beautiful lashes, seriously! This was my go-to for a long time, now it’s more of a second choice but I still adore it. It gives a lovely soft, luscious look but can also be built up for more drama and volume, if need be.
Maybelline Lash Sensational Luscious Mascara |
My only gripe with this one is that it’s an absolute pain to take off! You will think you got every last bit of it off only to wake up the next morning looking like a panda 💁 But still, this mascara is great for dramatic, volumised lashes. This is not subtle in the slightest, put this on and your lashes will be looking bold and well, sensational and will stand out. A great evening mascara if that vivid look isn’t for you during the day!
Givenchy Noir Couture Volume Mascara |
I don’t wear this a lot probably because of it being Givenchy, cos y’know it’s probably the only Givenchy item I’ll ever own.. #poor. Anyway, it’s a lovely mascara and as the name would suggest volumises and gives lashes definition and length. I also adore the studded packaging!
Bobbi Brown Smokey Eye Mascara |
Again I don’t wear this a lot but it’s a really good mascara! As you would think, it compliments a smokey eye really well. It gives the appearance of thicker, fuller, more voluminous lashes. I love it and I really should start wearing it more!
