Mascara Monday: Sephora Brand Curling Mascara

p37329-hero.jpg

I grabbed a Sephora Brand Curling Mascara in Brown while at Sephora a couple of weeks ago. I’m going to give this one an good/average rating depending on the desired use. The mascara does a decent job lengthening, nothing too dramatic, but not bad either. Clumping was minimal, and overall, the mascara gives a decent […]

Mascara Monday: Dior Diorshow Mascara, a Cult Classic

p40404-hero.jpg

I have already reviewed Dior’s Diorshow Iconic Mascara (read review), but have not formally written about the original. Dior DiorShow Mascara is a cult classic favorite. Time and again you will see it listed as among the best mascaras out there, and I agree.  This one does it all. It lengthens, it adds volume, it […]

Mascara Monday Review: Maybelline Lash Stiletto

mb.jpg

Maybelline Lash Stiletto Mascara is a bit interesting. It lengthens very well—in fact I may have gotten more length from this one than from any other mascara. It also defines fairly well. But it does so in a way that made my lashes look thicker at the base and a bit spindly at the top. […]

Mascara Monday: Cargo Texas Lash Mascara

p202640-hero.jpg

CARGO TexasLash™ Mascara is a mascara for the big brush fans. This  large brush mascara aimed at huge lashes. It generally succeeds, but with some clumping if the brush is not carefully wiped. I found that this one give volume more than length. It lasts well with no flaking. It also is slightly pricey for […]

Mascara Monday Review: Iman Global Chic Signature Gold Long and Lush Mascara Duo

355492-199.jpg

Boy do I love this mascara! Iman Long and Lush Mascara Duo has two brushes. One brush is comb-like for creating well defined and long lashes. The other is of a more standard shape and size for creating volume and intensifying the color. The combination works beautifully as long as you are careful and don’t […]

Mascara Monday: Lowest Rated Mascaras

For today’s Mascara Monday, I have a piece syndicated from Total Beauty on their lowest rated mascara. I haven’t tried all of these, but I will say that I didn’t think the Smashbox mascara on the list was all that bad.  I didn’t love it either. I generally just found it average. To learn more, […]

L’Oreal Double Extension Beauty Tubes Mascara

L’Oreal has come out with a very effective version of a “tube” type of mascara. If you are not familiar with how tubing works, it essentially coats the lashes all around and lengthens them in a manner that forms tubes around each lash. These tubes look like little strings when you wash off the mascara. […]

Mascara Monday: Too Faced Lash Injection

162388.jpg

Too Faced Lash Injection is a mascara that, as long as you carefully wipe the brush before use, gives very nice length and medium volume to the lashes. I tend to not care for the big thick brushes, so Too Faced made me happy right off with the slightly smaller brush on its Lash Injection. […]

Mascara Monday Review: MarvaLash

marvalash.jpg

MarvaLash is unique mascara that actually left me wondering why nobody had thought of this before! The mascara comes with two brushes. OK, so that isn’t all that uncommon.  But with Marvalash, one brush is dry, and the other has the actual product. Both brushes are curved and, as a nice touch, they are lightly […]
