My make-up routine is minimal and my eye make-up ability…well, it’s pretty much non-existent. I wear eyeliner pencil in an imprecise way and that’s about it! So now that I’m well into adulthood, I think it’s about time that I figured it out!
I’ve been experimenting with different mascara brands and I have to tell you that I am overwhelmed! So many choices… Curling. Volumizing. Defining. Lengthening. Hydrating. etc. etc. Does there really need to be so many variations? Can’t one do it all? And how does that paint in a tube curl my lashes? Doesn’t seem possible…
Here are the ones I tried so far…
Trish McEvoy –Pros: it’s Trish, no clumping, easy to apply and remove, no smudging Cons: not a huge visible difference, no curling effect as promised(perhaps my lashes are too straight 🙁 )
Blinc –Pros: no clumping, easy to apply and extremely easy to remove, no smudging Cons: not a huge visible difference
Lancome –Pros: lashes are t.h.i.c.k., no clumping if done carefully, easy to remove, no smudging Cons: Because lashes are more noticeable, mistakes and a heavy hand stand out!
Benefit –Pros: lashes are longer and thicker, no clumping if done carefully, easy to remove, no smudging, love the brand! Cons: Because lashes are more noticeable, mistakes and a heavy hand stand out!
Hmmm. So I guess Benefit they’re Real! is my favorite so far. Next, I’ll be trying Dior Show, Sephora’s brand, Rimmel, and Chanel. Any suggestions??
Ok, so now that I ‘ve spent a sufficient amount of time procrastinating with this mascara quest, time to get ready for…Fashion Week!!!
