Fountain of 30

When it comes to mascara, I am obsessed. Mascara is the lime to a margarita, it brings everything together! With that said, I’m always on the hunt for the newest mascara that promises the best lashes you will ever have. Well, maybe not that far, but at least a mascara that delivers. So without further ado, here are some of my favorite mascara’s right now.

One of the newest mascara’s to knock me off my feet, is IT Cosmetics Hello Lashes 5-in-1 Volumizing Mascara. This mascara is amazing. What initially won me over is that it curls my lashes unbelievably. I have tried so many mascaras that promise to curl your lashes when all it does is give them a little length. However this mascara actually does it all: primes, curls, lengthens, gives volume and conditions. It’s everything you would want in a mascara, especially if you have skimpy lashes. I promise you will love this mascara just as much as I do!

This next mascara was love at first mention. Yes, I said mention, because it is part of the iconic bombshell, Marilyn Monroe’s Limited Edition by MAC Cosmetics. We all know Marilyn for her sultry looks, red lips and batty lashes so I was excited for Marilyn Monroe’s False Lashes. A great mascara is everything and with Marilyn’s name stamped on it, it must be fantastic. This mascara will definitely stand out in your cosmetic bag with it’s cute tube, but even better is that it will give your lashes serious curl and volume.

For my budget conscious ladies, are you ready for this one? I have a mascara that is worth every single dollar (and you won’t have to use too many of them). L’Oreal’s Voluminous Million Lashes is your answer. This gold tube gem, won’t literally give you a million lashes, but close to it. When it comes to mascara, the type of brush is the key to the lash you desire, and this brush is perfect. It has a multitude of long and short bristles to separate and give the lashes a fanned-out effect. If you want volume, this mascara does it.

If you are looking for length from your mascara, look no further. Ellis Faas Mascara takes your lashes there! This mascara is ideal for creating length and volume without making your lashes too heavy. I love that it is buildable, and suitable for everyday use, from going to the grocery store or on a night out. It’s definitely a luxurious mascara, and you will feel good wearing it.

Last but not least, a brand that has always given us great mascara’s, Lancome brings us Definicils Precious Cell. This mascara is everything you would want for healthy lashes. It improves the condition of your lashes as it beautifully defines them and gives you fuller, stronger lashes. It has a secret ‘lash densifier complex’ with a precious plant cell extract that helps regenerate lash condition and makes lashes less likely to fall-out during makeup removal. This mascara is huge for those of us with skimpy lashes.
