Top 3 Favourite Mascaras

I declare myself a lash enthusiast and I would choose mascara over any other eye product. But that’s just my personal choice. There are days when I get asked if I am wearing falsies and my answer is always no. I suck at applying them and my natural lashes are quite long and dense so I use some mascara to define them a little bit more and then I’m good to go. I know everyone is looking for different things in a product but here I am sharing with you my top 3 favourites that are worth batting an eyelash for.

Maybelline The Falsies Push Up Drama (£7.99)

Hands down the best drugstore mascara I’ve ever tried. I even made my mum try it and she loves it too. It comes with a basic plastic applicator that has spiky bristles. The brush applies the product without clumps, pulling the lashes forward for volume and length. This mascara extends the lashes so nicely without leaving them stiff. During the wear, I don’t have smudging or flaking issues and even if I don’t own the waterproof formula, it still takes a lot of rubbing to get it all off at the end of the day. If you are looking for an affordable mascara that gives your lashes some extra length you will be pleased with this product from Maybelline.

MAC Zoom Fast Black Lash (£15)

This is my most recent discovery which I got as a free sample with an order I placed at MAC. I’ve never actually used one of their mascaras before so I was pretty excited to try this one out. MAC describes it as ‘a mascara with a three-sided fiber brush that volumizes lashes with a carbon black formula.’ and I have to admit that I am really impressed with the product. It delivers great volume and   length and it also separates the lashes really well, making them look very defined. This mascara is incredibly black so when I try taking it off I end up looking like a racoon. It wears nicely throughout the day and I’m definitely considering purchasing the full size product.

Too Faced Better Than Sex (£19)

If you’ve never tried to get your hands on this mascara then what are you doing with your life? Better Than Sex is probably the most reviewed, liked and raved lash product out there. The catchy name might have something to do with that but the product itself is kind of amazing. So what is all the fuss about? The mascara is packed with collaged to give you larger than life, intense lashes that look defined and lengthened. Big claims, right? After giving this a thorough test, I ended up falling in love with it. I absolutely love this mascara and it sure does live up to the hype. The wand is shaped like an hourglass which distributes the perfect amount of product onto the lashes creating a gorgeous false-lash effect. So is it Better Than Sex? I guess that depends, but it is definitely better than other mascaras I’ve tried.

    Hey Alina, really admire such detailed reviews. I guess I will be buying Better Than Sex because almost everyone is rooting for this thing. My personal fave is GREAT LASH WASHABLE MASCARA by Maybelline and I've never really felt the need to switch to other masacaras. It gives that full lash look and makes my eyes stand out. Loved reading your post babe.
