If You Love A Dramatic Lash, These Mascaras Are For You

When it comes to mascaras, the bigger the better. The more drama, the better. No wimpy, natural lashes for me. I like drama all the way. And I've found 3 new mascaras (well new to me) to add to my arsenal. 

1. Bareminerals Lash Domination - I have heard about this mascara before, but am unsure why it took me so long to try it. Regardless the reason, I am here now for it and a repurchase will need to be made when it runs out. To make that kind of statement so early on is quite something, but when you know, you just know. The brush is large, spiraled and perfect for grabbing each and every lash. It gives a glorious fanned out lash without any clumping. Out of all three, this one makes my lashes look almost false - in a good way, of course. And that is exactly the look I am going for. *blink blink* 

2. Benefit Roller Lash Mascara - After loving They're Real so much, I was hesitant to try this for fear it wouldn't live up to that type of drama. In a way, it didn't because it gives a more separated and curled lash. It's still inky black and makes my lashes stand out in a strong way, but that over-the-top drama that I love from They're Real is toned down a bit for the Roller Lash. I prefer to wear this one with eye shadow rather than a nude eye and bold lip. I like a curled and flirty lash with a fully done eye and big ridiculous lashes with no shadow and an intense lip. But if you are someone that struggles with trying to curl your lashes, the shape of this brush will greatly help that and give you that strong curl with each swipe.

3. Guerlain Maxi-Lash in Marine - Ok, so this mascara formulation isn't new to me - but the color is! And just an FYI - Guerlain Maxi-Lash is one of my holy grail mascaras. The formula is quite thin at first but after a few weeks of using it, it thickens up to the perfect consistency and gives the best lash. It's been forever since I have worn colored mascara, so this seemed like the perfect introduction back to it. It's a deep gray/blue that is subtle enough for every day, but in the light gives a hint of color. I actually love wearing this paired with a bronzey or golden eye shadow and find that the blue really stands out against those shades. Of course for a more fun look, I've been wearing it with the dark blue shade from the Guerlain spring palette. I like to line my eyes with the royal blue and then throw on the mascara for a step out of my comfort zone. Ok, I know that sounds ridiculous, but my crazy colored makeup days are far behind me, so even a royal blue is stepping out. But it feels good to do it once in a while. Heyyyyyyyy. :)

  1. Hello

    Love those mascaras. I just ordered the surratt one for the barneys event super excited. Your blog and videos are some of my faves. I think your awesome. Have you tried any eyeshadows from colourpop? I see they have gorgeous neutrals but I don't want to sound like a beauty snob I just never buy drugstore makeup. I only started really being beauty obsessed 3 years ago when I had my son and I always just buy the luxury brands, and your really honest in your opinions so I wanted to know what you think? Thank
    You

    1. To be honest - they haven't really caught my eye either. I hear the pigmentation is phenonmenal - but I am a fancy pants when it comes to makeup! But maybe if it intrigues me enough and I keep seeing them, I may break at some point. LOL

      Thanks for reading and commenting!! xo
