I love having long and thick (quite clumpy) lashes, I mean who doesn’t! I’ve always searched for a good but affordable mascara, but haven’t been satisfied yet. Recently I tried two new mascaras (now they’re not new in the sense that they just came out on the market – new as in I just happened to come across them to try).
This is the one with the curved wand. I bought this after looking at those long, thick lashes of Penelope Cruz in the posters. But honestly speaking, I was extremely disappointed by the results. The curvy wand had gotten me so excited and had set the expectations high.
Here are my issues with it: It makes my lashes look THINNER and SHORTER than they are. The liquidy formula spritz around the eyes making it messy to apply. After drying, I don’t see any additional thickness no matter how many coats I apply. In fact, it just makes it look much thinner and makes then stick to each other in a way that it looks like I have five lashes.
The only good thing about thing this mascara is its price.
MAYBELLINE FALSIES VOLUME EXPRESS
Two words – LOVE IT! I am a huge fan of it now, and I will purchase it again.It adds so much length and volume to my lashes. I know some people don’t like it, but for my lashes, it works wonders. If I add too much, it might look clumpy but I kind of like that. My eyes are pointy and face down, but this keeps my lashes curled all day without having to touch up. That means less product consumption and more worth out of your money.
The only think I don’t like it is that if I wear it for toooooo long it starts to flake, but it doesn’t bother me as I don’t usually wear it for more than 8 hours anyway. For the price, it’s a good deal.
Overall, I recommend it.
AVON WASH-OFF WATERPROOF
Honestly, it isn’t as bad as I thought it would be. I like to use it because it makes my lashes look separated and curled. Although I would have like more volume and length. I find it hard to apply a couple of coats with it, but that could just be me. The thing that I like about it is the fact that is it easily washable, unlike other waterproof mascara. I hate to tug on my eye area to clean mascaras as it can give you wrinkles. It also stays put in place without flaking too much throughout the day.
Now I am not sure about the exact price as I got it as a gift, I think it must be within $4-$10 (CAN). Based on that guesstimate, that’s not bad.
Hope you guys find it helpful!
