What is your most expensive beauty product? NARS Sheer Glow Foundation. I love the formulation and the coverage of this foundation. Although it is not currently one of my favourites it is definitely in my top 2 foundations along with my Estée Lauder Double Wear, which is not as expensive as the NARS but it is still fairly pricey.
And what is your most inexpensive beauty product? Collection concealer. Absolutely love this product and have done for many years. I have tried a few concealers but I just always find myself going back to my collection one.
What beauty products do you have a love and hate relationship with? I have a love hate relationship with Benefit They’re Real Mascara. My reason for this is I find it is a mascara that you need to have really clean eyelashes for or it will clump and I hate it when my mascara clump. In saying this it is a really nice mascara when the eyelashes are clean. It makes them super long and gives them heaps of volume.
What are your most delicious beauty products? I think I am going to have to say Soap and Glory Breakfast Scrub. It smells absolutely incredible! If you like sweet-smelling things and maple syrup you will love this scrub. The product itself is amazing too and leaves your skin feeling so soft.
What beauty product do you neglect due to laziness? Eyeshadow without a doubt!! On a day-to-day basis I tend not to wear eyeshadow, if I am going to use anything I tend to just run a bit of bronzer through the crease to add a bit of dimension. Or if I am feeling a little bit fancy or want something extra that is easy I use Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion in Sin.
What product gives you most confidence? Mascara is my go to makeup product if I were to pick one makeup product to use for the rest of my life it would be mascara. At the moment I have been loving the Maybelline The Colossal Volume Cat Eyes.
What product makes you feel more attractive? To be boring I am going to have to say mascara again. There is just something about mascara that just changes your entire face.
What beauty item would you most like to receive as a gift? I would love to receive any of the Urban Decay Eyeshadow palettes as I have heard so many great things about them. I have tried my friends and I loved it. I also feel if I had one I would experiment more with eyeshadow. They have been quite hard to get a hold of in Australia in the past but now that they are sold in store I may treat myself to one this year.
If I had to pick one makeup product to use for the rest of my life it would probably be mascara. I love mascara and I have had my fair share of them over the years. For the most part I will usually wear waterproof mascara only because I feel it holds the curl better although it is such a pain to get off.
When it comes to picking one brand for mascara I will have to say Maybelline (considering 3/5 of the mascaras I have picked are maybelline). I feel like I havent had a bad one from them yet! They all hold the curl really well, they don’t flake and they dont clump. I’m not a clumpy eyelash sort of girl. I need to have they separated, false lashes kind of look.
Today I am going to share with your my top 5 mascaras. THey are in no particular order except for the first which is my current favourite.
The Colossal Volume Express Cat Eyes: Now this mascara is probably my all time favourite. I have naturally quite long lashes as it is but the mascara just takes them to the next level. It is very lengthening and gives quite a lot of volume. It separates the lashes really well and for a non-waterproof mascara it doesn’t flake or leave black marks under the eyes.
Heroine Make Long and Mascara: I’m always on the look out for some alternative brands of makeup. I tend to google things like best waterproof mascaras and 9/10 of the time I can’t get them where I am from. Although this little find is a japanese brand (don’t quote me on that) I found in Hong Kong. I really like how this mascara makes my lashes look, really volumising and gives great length. The only downside is that it is “super” waterproof and one of those mascaras that you need to have clean lashes before you apply it for the best results.
The Falsies Volume Express: This is a cult classic mascara and another one of my go to makeup products. I tend to reach for this mascara on those days where I may have had mascara on the day before that hasn’t completely come off. I find it just works no matter the condition of your lashes. Works great for length and volume and the formula is easy to build up.
The Magnum Volume Express: I hadn’t seen this mascara where I live when I bought it. I found it in Hong Kong at the end of last year which makes me think it was a fairly new mascara from Maybelline. I love this mascara, it is very similar to the original colossal mascara except the wand is curved. It gives great length and volume and last forever (well until you wash it off). As far as a water proof mascara it is fairly easy to remove.
Benefit They’re Real: As you can see this is the only high-end mascara I have in my top 5. This is purely because I haven’t tried any others and I always tend to stick with my Maybelline ones. If you do have any suggestions let me know! This mascara also makes my lashes look super long, it doesn’t make them as thick as some of the Maybelline ones but it is great for length. I do find though for my lashes they need to be super clean for it to give me the result I want.
Thank you for reading about my favourite mascaras! If you have any favourites you think I should try let me know.
