The Mascara Handbook

If there is one thing I know best its mascaras. I am a total and complete mascara junkie. The longest part of my make-up routine is always my mascara. I almost always use 2 or more different mascaras on a daily basis. Call me crazy but I like my lash voluminous and long. With this extensive history of loving and testing out many mascaras I thought I would share my current favorites and some oldies but goodies that never fail. In the interest of mascara lovers everywhere I also asked some of my girlfriends to name their holy grail mascaras.



My favorite mascaras:

1. Tarte Lights Camera Lashes - This mascara is what started my love for lots of volume. Tarte is pretty much known for this cult classic.

2. bareMinerals Lash Domination - I am currently using this one and have fallen in love with this mascara as it adds amazing volume to my lashes.

3. Maybeline Falsies Mascara - Another mascara that I am using currently. This drugstore mascara is one of my all time favorites. It gives great volume and length while still keeping natural flexible feel to your lashes.

4. L'Oréal Voluminous Carbon Black Mascara - This mascara is a classic you really can't go wrong with this one and the price point is great too.

5. L'Oréal Double Extend Lash Extensions Effect Mascara - I haven't used this mascara in years but I remember it always gave the best volume to my lashes. This was a favorite of mine all through college.

6. Lancôme Hypnose Doll Lashes Mascara - Lancôme is known for their mascaras and this one lives up to all the hype. By far my favorite brush as it tappers down and really gives you great definition by getting down to the root of the lashes from corner to corner.

7. Tarte Lights Camera Flashes - This is the other mascara I am currently using. It doesn't give much volume which I usually go for but it does give the most amazing length.

8. Ready to Wear Lash Extension - This is more of a bonus item since its not actually a mascara. You use this in conjunction  with mascara and it adds crazy volume and length by adding fibers to your lashes. With out fail every time I wear this some one stops and asks me if my lashes are real. Honest.

My friends favorites:

1. Becky: Becky is a girl after my own heart. As soon as I texted her I received a reply with pictures and all. She knows just what this little blogger loves! Her favorite mascara is the NYX XXL Lush Lashes Mascara. Explaining that it’s great for a girl on a budget and the rounded bristle tip works brilliantly for getting in the corner of your lashes.


2. Bora: My friend Bora and I always joke that we are soul sisters. Both equally obsessed with beauty and watching YouTube videos on the reg. Her all-time favorite is L’Oreal’s voluminous lashes. This girl knows her stuff, I have to agree this one is great.

3. Ashley: Ashley is the glamour girl who is always dressed to the nines. She has a blog of her own over at Suburban Chic. All Ashley swears by is Benefit’s Badgal Lash, which has a cult following of its own.

4. Brooke: Brooke is the recent working mom of the bunch who’s no fuss no muss attitude makes sure she only has time for what really works and disregards the rest. Her favorite mascara has been a staple of hers for years and is L'Oréal Extra Volume Collagen Mascara.

5. Lynn: She is such a classic beauty whose makeup always looks perfectly put together. Her favorite mascara is MAC False Lashes Mascara. I have never tried this one before so I will absolutely be adding this to my list of future buys.

6. Alex: This mom of an adorable 3 year old is always on the run chasing her little munchkin but still manages to look amazing all the time. Her favorite mascara is a recent find from a company called Younique. It's the 3D Fiber Mascara that is a two step system of mascara and fibers.
