Mascara Madness Pt. II

Back in March I reviewed some open mascaras. You can read about those here. I have more than I’d like open right now so I thought I’d review them!

Mascara Madness | Bolt Blogs

Covergirl Clump Crusher (water resistant): When I just need a mascara, I pick this up. It’s the only mascara I’ll put on my bottom lashes because it doesn’t smudge (a big problem for me).

Covergirl Lashblast Fusion: This was in my cabinet at home and I desperately needed a new mascara. I like layering it over the Clump Crusher because it adds a lot of volume.

Too Faced Better Than Sex:ย This mascara adds tons of volume but didn’t hold my curl as well as others tend to.

Tarte Lights, Camera, Lashes: When I’m off my no-buy, I will definitely get the full size. It is super lengthening and just makes for beautiful lashes. You can see me wearing it in a picture here

Benefit They’re Real: In my last Mascara Madness I raved about this but I’m a little over it. I go through phases with this. **I know this may sound crazy but I think the sample size is better than the full size. Other people have said the same thing too

Thoughts? What are your favorites?

    I love They’re Real and I’ve been using it for ages now. I don’t think I’ve found a mascara that compares on all levels. Lately I’ve been impressed with KIKO milan Ultra Tech mascara. I love that I’ve found someone who is obsessed with mascaras as I am

      I think the “the perfect mascara” will forever be my quest! I’ve seen so many good things about KIKO but haven’t looked into where I can get it/shipping costs to the states

        you should really take a look because the products are so reasonably priced, I couldn’t believe it. I live in the UK so I don’t know about shipping to the US but it’s worth a look:)

          I’ll have to check into it then. I know Gabby on YouTube is always talking about their products

            I’ve not seen that so I’ll have to check it out. I love your blog by the way and I’ve followed you now. Can’t wait to see more of your posts!

    I’ve only tried the one from Too Faced and really enjoy it but find it flakes on me. Mascara is such a pain, lol. Great post, though!

      Yes that too. I had higher hopes but it’s ok. Thank you ๐Ÿ™‚
