I wrote this post in Lockdown 1.0, and now we are in lockdown 2.0 in Melbourne. Ah good times, so organised 😂
Anyways, I have heaps of mascaras so I’m going to test them out, 5 at a time!
BYS Lash Boost: I was able to get quite a natural looking effect with this mascara on the ends of my lashes, but wanted a bit more ‘boost’. I really focused on shimmy-ing the brush right at the base of my lashes which thickened the appearance and made them a bit more fluttery yet daytime appropriate. I was impressed that I could achieve two different looks with it. However, after a day of sitting at my desk and touching my face too much, I did have a tiny bit of flaking. Nothing too bad, I’ll just use this for short term wear. (Gifted)
Makeup Revolution The Waterproof Mascara: I’ve heard so many great things about the non-waterproof version of this so I was excited to try. Without too much effort, I was able to create quite bold, voluminous lashes. Very happy! It held up extrememly well too. I never wear waterproof mascara ans so kinda had a bit of toruble removing it. My Press Beauty swipie did a pretty good job by itself but I had to use some micellar water to get off the final bits. I would use this for when I need a super long last lash, but because of the removal hassel I won’t reach for it everyday. However, the non waterproof version i am super keen to try!! (Gifted)
Ulta3 Great Lengths: Ok, guys! This mascara does exactly what it promises! The most lengthening mascara I have potentially ever tried! It has a thin, plastic wand which normally isn’t my fave, but it works super duper well with this formula. Seriously, wow!! I feel like despite the fact that there isn’t a crazy about of volume to your lashes, the length makes up for it and creates pretty pow-wow lashes. LOVE!! (Gifted)
Maybelline The Falsies Lash Lift: I bought this in the Priceline half price sale a little while back. I was totally influenced by beauty babes on Instagram to buy this. People sung its praises from the rooftops, so I thought, ‘yep let’s add another mascara to my already embarrassing large collection.’ Because of this, I had V V V V HIGH expectations. I was expecting to look like i had false lashes on. Lemme say, this was not the case. One coat of mascara gave me longer, fuller looking lashes and yeah it was nice. But it wasn’t WOW, like I was expecting. I could build up the layers to get a more dramatic result, but it still didn’t blow me away. It lasts all day very well, and I do like the hourglass-shaped brush. Ultimately, it’s nice, but I think the Lash Sensational can achieve this and more…
Rimmel Scandal Eyes Volume On Demand: I’ve tried the OG Scandal Eyes in the past and was not a fan- it was soooo clumpy… however this new one was a vast improvement in my opinion. I could achieve thicker-looking, longer lashes quite easily, and I could then build it up a bit. It lasted well and I was happy overall. I would actually rate this over the Maybelline Lash Lift in terms of ‘drama’. In saying that though, I wouldn’t repurchase because I think others can achieve this and more. (Like I’ve said, I have high standards when it comes to mascara!!)
I was most shocked by….The Rimmel Scandal Eyes! Just because I had a bad experience with the original in the past, so I had high expectations for this one and I believe it lived up to them)
If I could only pick one…. Agh, so hard! I certainly want to buy the non-waterproof version of the Makeup Revolution, because then I would certainly pick that one. But because I did try the waterproof one, from this selection I would choose the Ulta3! I wonder if I could get more volume- in addition to the great length- if I used an eyelash curler before hand?
Have you tried any of these mascaras? What’s your favourite?
