Today for makeup Monday I decided to let you in on my ultimate favourite mascaras. I have gone through numerous and I'm sure down the line I will find some more favourites, but these two are my current ones.
I had heard wonderful things about this mascara so of course I had to try it. Some people swear by the waterproof version for everyday, but I personally hate waterproof unless I'm jumping in the water. I thought the non waterproof worked fabulously and it gave such volume to my eyelashes. I had some misconception about rubber mascaras thinking they weren't as good as a natural brush, but I loved this one. Now my two favourite mascaras are both with a rubber brush.
I can't even tell you how much this mascara has been hyped about, and it completely makes sense why. The first time I tried this mascara I was shocked with what it did to my lashes. I already have really long top and bottom lashes and this really showed them off and extended the length by a huge amount.
I usually use two different mascaras at a time and these two work wonders together. The Maybelline one gives me volume and the Benefit one gives me the length. The end result is wonderful and makes my eyes look ginormous.
You can tell from the brushes that the Maybelline one is more for volume (because of the fat brush) and the Benefit one is more for lengthening (because of the long brush). Best of both worlds when combined.
Here is a shot from my I can be your china doll post where I'm wearing both mascaras together. You can really see how long and bold my eyelashes are with these mascaras.
If you don't want to spend $30 on the Benefit mascara then the $7.99 Maybelline will do just fine :)
