While I have some tried and true favorites (Hello Dior Iconic), I always am testing and trying new mascaras. It is an endless and cherished search that I do in the name of blogging (and being a crazy beauty junkie). Lately, I’ve found some standouts – both brand new and others classics.
I fell hard for it Cosmetics a while back when I tried out their concealer. So I was egear to try out other goodies from the line. Their Hello Lashes! 5-In-1 Treatment Mascara in Black did not disappoint. Not only is this a mascara, but a four other products that all work together for killer lashes. Working as volumizing mascara, conditioning lash primer, lash-enhancing serum, lash tint, and a lash comb/curler, this gives blackest black, full lashes. Developed with plastic surgeons, the formula contains peptides, collagen, proteins, acai, jojoba, green tea, and vitamins A, C, E, and B5. The brush goes after every single lash and I love the Magic Wand detailer tip to get lower and corner lashes. Made in the USA.
Maybelline Volum’ Express The Rocket Waterproof Mascara in Very Black has been a drugstore favorite since it hit shelves a while back. This formula delivers wild volume. I get great staying power from the Waterproof formula, but haven’t had as much luck with the Washable version. Maybelline’s Very Black is a cherished inky color that stays vivid all day. And unlike so many drugstore formulas, I don’t get any clumps. The brush is huge but still nimble enough to coat every single lash.
I hadn’t experienced Estee Lauder mascara until this one, and it makes me want to try every single mascara they have to offer. Estee Lauder Sumptuous Extreme Mascara in Extreme Black has three fibers blended in a lightweight base. This creates a false-lash effect with thicker fuller lashes without the weight. At the same time, pearls add a shiny and luminous finish. The best way to describe the effect: lashes just look healthy! The formula also contains Lash-Advancing Vitamin Complex to condition and fortify lashes.
