Favorite Mascaras

Okay. So…here is a secret about me…I LOVE mascara. Like, literally love it. Some people won’t leave the house without lipstick…me? I won’t leave without mascara. It’s just my thing!

Though I have always been obsessed with mascara, since having kids, my enthusiasm has since grown. I don’t feel (or look) awake until I have my mascara on. If you follow me, you have seen my 5 minute make up routine…I don’t slather on a ton of make up; (A) I don’t have time and (B) I don’t know how (haha)!

But, there is something about finding the right mascara for either lengthening…thickening…or both…that can change your entire look (and attitude, may I add).

I will try ANY mascara…literally any mascara. It doesn’t matter if it is from the drug store or department store…I love trying new brands and types. Given my obsession, it works out that Nordstrom is having their mascara madness event on May 25, 2019. What is this wondrous event, you might ask?! The event allows you to purchase 2 mascaras and get the third mascara free. The mascara doesn’t have to be the same or from the same make up line; you can mix and match and pick which ever mascaras you wish!

My top 9 picks are listed below:

  1. Benefit, they’re real: this mascara is definitely worth the hype and is a great pick for everyday.
  2. Estee Lauder, Sumptuous knockout: THIS mascara is a TRUE favorite of mine! Works wonders!
  3. DIORSHOW: I have always loved Dior mascara, especially the DIORSHOW. The only thing I will say is, while it gives great thickness and volume, it is drying to the lashes.
  4. Charlotte Tilbury, Legendary lashes: Great for volume and stays on!
  5. Chanel, Le Volume: A perfect every day mascara option. Great color. Gives thickness to lashes.
  6. Too Faced, Better than Sex: THIS is my mascara of the moment. I love the way it lengthens and thickens my lashes for all day wear! I get so many compliments when I wear this mascara.
  7. Tom Ford, Raven: I love everything about this luxe mascara. My only complaint…its pricey!
  8. MAC extended play mascara: This MAC mascara will make a terrific addition to your make up drawer. It is the BEST, especially for lower lashes and tiny lashes on the inner eye.
  9. Clinique High Impact: A truly amazing mascara for volume!
