Current Mascara Wardrobe

I've pretty much always been fussy when it comes to mascara. I find alot of brand new mascaras are too wet for me, so it's not until a few weeks later I find I begin to like a mascara formula. But things around here have changed...

I've acquired a number of mascaras of late, either through beauty boxes or shopping trips and have created a mascara wardrobe that has a mascara for any occasion.

I received a mini version of the Model Co Power Lash mascara in my September Birchbox and form first application I was in love. The formula is a little wet, but I can cope with that. The bristle brush is absolutely packed with product and effortlessly give massive amounts of volume to the lashes! Great if you're looking for a wide eyed look.

If you're after something that more along the lines of 'No Makeup', for me, It has to be Clinique High Impact Mascara. I find this formula to be quite thin, but in a good way. It coats the lashes nicely and adds great length and curl, without looking clumpy or too voluminous on the lashes.  Brilliant for lazy days.

I reach for my Laura Mercier Long Lash Mascara for my bottom lashes. This has dried our a little and is exactly how I like my mascara. The dainty brush is perfect for coating the bottom lashes with ease and I pretty much never smudge when I use this. The formula sticks too - no panda eyes at the end of the day for me.

If like me your allergies are beginning to flare up, rain is splashing on your face on the morning commute or your just a crier then you'll want something with a little more staying power. For this, look no further than Benefit's They're real mascara. Gives length, volume and stays put! 

The newest of the bunch for ms is my everyday mascara, the Revlon Grow Luscious Mascara. This mascara claims to have a lash enhancing formula which helps support the growth of your lashes. I'm not too sure about this claim but I will say that recently when I haven't been wearing mascara my lashes have been looking pretty darn good! The brush on this is massive which is its only downfall as it can be slightly difficult to maneuver - but the formula is perfect for everyday use. It's easily build-able for volume too.

5 mascaras might seem pretty excessive, but I don't always want the same eye look everyday! 

What mascaras would you recommend?


  1. 5 mascaras is perfectly acceptable! That's what I tell myself when ever I buy myself a new one!


  2. I think I have at least 5 full size mascaras in rotation right now... That's not even counting all of the deluxe samples I have floating around o_O

    Totally with you on the formulas being too wet when they're brand new and just opened though. I literally will open the mascara, close it, and leave it off to the side for a good week or two before I actually use it.

    1. I feel guilty having all of these open! Full size, I don't know what I'd do! Haha! Thanks for reading Hun x
