Reviews of Popular Mascaras

Mascara has got to be one of my favorite beauty products because it does absolutely amazing things for the lashes. It makes them look darker, longer, thicker, more curled and sexier! How can you find a good mascara? Start by looking for a mascara formula that meets your needs. Do you want waterproof? Do you want longer lashes? Do you want thicker lashes? Do you want them to look natural or dramatic? Do you want a quick application or are you willing to spend some time applying?

I am always trying new mascaras for the fun of it and to find that perfect formula that does magical things for my lashes. I try mascaras that people say they like. It try mascaras written about in magazines. And I try mascaras that get good reviews on Ulta ans Sephora. 

Some mascaras are more lengthening and some are more volumizing. My favorite right now is Buxom Lush Mascara. It lengthens as well as adds some volume without clumping.

Lengthen Mascara
A lengthening formula is designed to make lashes look longer. It will add some volume as well, but its main purpose is to add length. Lengthening mascaras tend to be a thinner formula the goes on in smooth thin coats. I personally want my lashes to look longer so a lengthening formula is my favorite mascara formula.

Volumizing Mascara
A volumizing mascara is designed to make lashes look fuller and thicker. It will add some length as well, but its main purpose is to thicken. For me, a volumizing mascara can clump easily. 

Mascara Applicators
The brush inside the mascara tube is designed to make the most of the mascara formula. It can be hard or soft, comb like or brush like, straight or curved.

Lengthening Applicator
A lengthening mascara many times has a hard, rubbery spikey of comb like applicator to lay on a smooth layer of mascara that can be stretched out without clumps.

Volumizing
A volumizing mascara has a more brush like applicator.  It can have a shape to it such as an hourglass which is meant to accentuate and shape the lashes during application.

Mascaras can vary greatly in price. A high end luxury Givenchy mascara will cost you $33 while an e.l.f. mascara can be just $1. A good mascara doesn't have to cost a bundle. You will be surprised at some of my favorites. One you will find right in your local drugstore for $2.99! 

Here are 10 reviews of popular mascaras with pictures to show how they look on to help guide you to a mascara that meets your needs. Some I love. Some not so much but they may work for you. Remember, I prefer to use beauty products that are not tested on animals so you won't be seeing Maybelline Great Lash here! Click on the mascara name for the review and other info.
