The following mascaras were recommended in that post from last year:
- Great Lash by Maybelline (the famous pink tube!)
- Dior Show
- Lancome Defincils
- Trish McEvoy BLACK lash curling mascara
The Great Lash mascara I have tried several times ever since high school...and it just doesn't work for me.
I really liked how Lancome's Defincils lengthened my lashes...but I like a mascara that lengthens and gives more volume...so I was a bit dissapointed. But if you have thick lashes that need more length, I would give this one a try!
When I bought the Lancome mascara, I shopped during their promotion, so I also got a trial size mascara (great for an on-the-go makeup bag by the way!) of Lancome's Hypnose Custom Volume Mascara along with Cils Booster XL Super Enhancing Mascara Base. I really liked the results of using both products together. The booster is a white base that goes on first, followed by the Hypnose. The only drawback for me was the extra step. Not a huge deal...but I would rather just have one mascara that thickens and lengthens. (For the record, I did try the Hypnose by itself, but I didn't like the results as much.)
And then, well, there's DiorShow. It thickens and lengthens beautifully but it's still "soft"...my lashes don't feel so stiff that they could break. It rinses off easily in warm water. If I get it on my eyelids while applying, it comes off easily without smearing. The applicator rarely if ever gets clumpy so your lashes don't get clumpy. And the best thing? It smells good. I don't know what it smells like, but all other mascaras I've ever used have that same "mascara smell" and DiorShow doesn't smell like that. Funny, I know. But I like the smell. The only drawback for me is that they don't sell it where I live...so I either pay shipping or buy it when I'm in a "bigger city". But that's okay.
So thankful for the tip, Marianne! Maybe I'll try the Trish McEvoy for fun sometime...but for now, I'm using DiorShow.
