A year or so ago I recommended my favorite mascara (by Sonja Krashuk), but of course that was the signal to Target to have it discontinued. So I’ve been wandering in the mascara wilderness for a couple of months now. Mascaras, more than any other product, rely heavily on adjectives (Super maxi thick ultra-long lash supreme!) Their names are like watching those little girl beauty pageants; there are so many adjectives that the title becomes meaningless.
I love to peruse the trial sizes at Ulta. You can try out some fancy-pants make-up for cheap (they’re usually all piled together in a rack by the cashier). I bought They’re Real mascara by benefit and I’m really liking it. It does make my lashes look super thick, but super thick can also mean super clumpy and globby. I can only get my lashes to look great about half of the time with this mascara.
So my search resumes for a mascara that looks thick but still manages to separate my lashes. Have you found anything that you really love? I’ve heard good things about Clinique mascara but I hate sinking a lot of money into mascara since really it’s not the thing that people notice first. It’s just a couple of rows of hair. But my eyes look beady and bland without it. So the search continues . . . .
