Everyone is always on the lookout for the perfect mascara. We all have a specific way we like our lashes to look and if you’re like me, you’re picky about mascara. For years I used to use only waterproof, but stopped about five months ago because it was slowly ruining my lashes. I have naturally long eyelashes but the waterproof mascara every single day was wearing it down. I’ve been using castor oil every night, and since then, it’s been going back to normal (I wrote a post on castor oil here). Since I’ve stopped using waterproof mascara, I’ve been on the look out for some new holy grails. It’s been five months, and I think I’ve found some of the best. *Some* of these are #cleanbeauty, because that’s something I’m focusing more on this year. Here are my favorite mascaras.
Ilia Limitless Lash
My favorite at the moment. It’s a clean beauty brand and it works wonderfully. Fully separates my lashes. I used to love waterproof mascara for the sole reason that they do not flake. However, this one sticks on all day. It also holds a curl beautifully and has a two sided brush. This mascara is also really lengthening, so this is perfect if you’re looking for that.
Marc Jacobs Velvet Noir
The best mascara if you’re looking for a super dramatic lash with lots of volume. This is another one that doesn’t flake and holds a curl really well. I love the hourglass shaped brush on this mascara. I also love that if you don’t want it to be really bold, you can just do one coat and it gives you the perfect natural look.
Tarte Light, Camera, Lashes
I just got this one about a week ago and have been using it everyday. I’m late to the party because this one’s been around for years. Honestly the packaging isn’t my favorite which is probably what turned me off from buying it all this time (what can I say, I’m a marketing student, this stuff matters). Anyways, I regret waiting so long, because it really is such a good mascara and gives me the perfect natural look that I love.
Hourglass Caution Extreme Lash
Hourglass went vegan this year and so it’s been exciting trying out some of their products. I’m already obsessed with their eyebrow pencil, and their mascara is no different. This is another mascara that just does it all and give you an intense lash. Also, can we talk about the beautiful packaging!?
Flower Beauty Warrior Princess
A mascara that can 100% be held to high end mascara standards- and its only ten dollars. It has the hourglass shaped brush that I’ve already mentioned I love. This mascara is so volumizing, doesn’t smudge, flake, and holds a curl. It’s vegan too which is an added benefit!
What’s your favorite mascaras? Are you super specific when it comes to choosing one like me?
