My empties basket is starting to fill up rather quickly. Instead of doing a lengthy post of EVERYTHING in the basket, I’m going to try to categorize it.

Today’s post is going to be about all of the mascaras I’ve used up and what I thought of them!

Loreal Voluminous Original ($7.99)-  I have been purchasing this mascara FOREVER! Back when I knew nothing about mascara (or even makeup for that matter) I was using this mascara. It creates great volume and thickness to your lashes without making them clumpy.

CoverGirl The Super Sizer ($7.49)- Probably one of my favorite mascaras of the year. This mascara is perfect for everyday makeup wear. It separates your lashes like no other mascara. It doesn’t give the best volume like it claims, but it lengthens. The brush also helps get down to the base of your lashes.

CoverGirl Clump Crusher ($7.99) Another tried and true CoverGirl mascara. This is very similar to the previous one I just talked about. It has a plastic and curved wand that really helps separate the lashes. I think my only complaint with this is that it’s a very dry formula. I feel like when I use this one, I’m constantly putting the brush into the tube to get more product. Still an oldie but a goodie!

Maybelline Volum’ Express The Mega Plush ($7.49)- Did NOT like this mascara at all. I think the major problem with this mascara was the wand itself. It has little crimp in it that makes it kind of bend when you’re applying mascara. I just didn’t feel like it was doing a good job of grabbing my lashes.

Maybelline Pumped up Colossal Volume ($7.99)- I preferred this mascara over the previous one. However, the wand on this one was HUGE. Every time I would apply this mascara, I would end up with more mascara on my face then on my eyelashes. It wasn’t horrible formula, but I won’t be repurchasing this one.

Tate Lights, Camera, Lashes ($21)- This one is a semi recent favorite of mine. I feel like this mascara just does it all. It lengthens, curls, volumizes. It doesn’t clump or smudge. Just a great mascara, all around! Tarte for the win!

Loreal Telescopic ($9.99)- I’ve heard a lot of people rave about this mascara. My curiosity got the best of me, so I gave it a shot. Again, I don’t care for the wand. It seems very flimsy (which might serve a functional purpose) and I don’t feel like it does a great job of grabbing my lashes. It just didn’t do much for me, so this one is a no-go.

Hope you all are having a great week! How’s everyones resolutions going?

I decided to take part in a little challenge at my workout studio. I also agreed to give up cheese for a month. Anyone who knows me, knows that this will be the longest month of my life.. Ugh.

I’ll be back soon! Enjoy the rest of your week.
