The Mascara Challenge

Ever since I've been home for Thanksgiving break I have been on a search for the perfect mascara.  There have been a few new drugstore releases that have caught my eye so when I got home I knew I had to try them.  The first is Maybelline's The Falsies mascara, which my sister tried and really disliked.  When I tried it, I thought it definitely didn't make it look like I was wearing false eyelashes, but it was still pretty good.

The next mascara I bought was Voluminous Million Lashes from L'Oreal.  I'd have to say I like it better than the falsies because the brush is rubber and much bigger, making my lashes not as clumpy.  The only bad thing I'd have to say is the smell is a little weird.

The next mascara I tried is Clinique's High Impact Curling mascara.  I have to say I was pretty disappointed by this one.  The formula is really watery and therefore clumps a lot.

My favorite (and of course, most expensive) mascara has turned out to Diorshow Iconic Mascara.  The plastic brush is really dense and combs through eyelashes nicely.  My lashes were full and thick and still not clumpy at all. 


  1. LOVE this post. i always have trouble picking a good mascara and don't feel like buying so many kinds to test. thank god for you to do the testing for me!!! j'adore dior!!

  2. Kathleen, have you tried Maybelline Colossal Volum' Express mascara? It looks just like the Falsies mascara (which I also wasn't very impressed by) but the bottle is yellow. I like it a lot and it doesn't clump at all!
