I am always on a quest to find the best mascara. There are so many good ones out there! These three are my current favorites and I have them in my makeup bag right now.
I’m not sure why I keep searching for “the best” mascara when this one tends to be on my favorite list year after year after year. Clinique makes amazing mascaras but this one I like the best. I can wear it every day or on a “no makeup” day when the only thing I wear is mascara (I have blonde lashes so mascara is a must every day for me). It is also thick enough to be worn for evening events.
When I really want thick black lashes, Badgal Bang is the best mascara! I can’t wear it alone with no other makeup or I would look incomplete… it is thick and WOW! But when I wear a lot of makeup or I am going out at night this is the best mascara!
I originally bought this IT Cosmetics Tightline Mascara thinking I would only use it on my lower lashes. But I really, really like it for days when I don’t want to wear any makeup. It is a very light formula (probably why they say it is a primer) and I like it for just a bit of color on my lashes. I haven’t tried it as a primer but I love it for both my upper and lower lashes.
Now for the 2019 list of mascaras I would own if I had a ridiculous makeup collection:
Buxom Lash Volumizing Mascara (I love the fat wand on this mascara!)
Wander Beauty Unlashed Volume and Curl Mascara (I LOVE the wand on this mascara – so much that I washed it once I finished the mascara and I keep it in my makeup bag for a mascara brush/comb now)
Clinique Lash Power Mascara (the best tubular mascara!)
Clinique Naturally Glossy Mascara (what I used for no makeup days before I tried the IT Tightline that is in my makeup bag now)
Urban Decay Cannonball Mascara (my favorite waterproof mascara)
Yves Saint Laurent Vinyl Couture Mascara (a wonderful wet black look)
And because having 3 mascaras in my makeup bag and 13 others on my “oh these are great, too!” list isn’t quite enough, here are 10 more mascaras I really want to try from Sephora. Call me mascara obsessed!
Charlotte Tilbury Legendary Lashes (everyone is talking about this high end brand it seems – I remember trying some of it when I found it in Europe and it is so nice!)
The good news is that because mascara only lasts 2-3 months, I can buy and test new ones pretty often. Remember, even if your mascara isn’t used up in 2-3 months, you still need to throw it away and buy a new one. If you don’t remember, maybe James getting REALLY sick a few years ago from the same bacteria that grows in mascara will help you remember!
