Clinique (in general for makeup) and the High Impact mascara are such underdogs, but good quality. I haven’t placed a Clinique order in a long time, but I remember loving that mascara (and sometimes I could redeem it as gift or for points, Clinique has a great point system if you shop often on their website).

MAC Haute & Naughty Mascara in brown, it’s getting harder and harder to find brown mascara, so finding one in brown that I actually like is a “Good Day.” It has a double wand system, you unscrew one cap for more dramatic lashes and unscrew the other for more natural lashes. I’m a fan of natural lashes 99% of the time but it’s kinda cool that I have options. It’s not waterproof, and it didn’t flake on me or smudge off the lower lashes by the end of the day. Easy to remove, didn’t irritate my eyes. I like the brush on it, too, I have small/deepset eyes so I have trouble with a lot of the oversized wands that are popular right now.

I was always iffy to try that mascara because something about the dual-brush system made me think the packaging would break easily… and I never hear reviews about MAC mascara (after this new mascara launch recently it’s the first time I saw people actually reviewing MAC mascaras in years).
I might actually give Haute & Naughty a try. 😁

I picked it up on a whim, I heard Kristin Bell talk about it and she said she liked natural looking lashes so I always kept it in mind. Then I found myself putting together an order from the MAC website and figured why not give it a shot. I would definitely repurchase. I hope you have good results!

Oh, I really love that mascara! People have asked me what mascara I was wearing. I have a sample of this, will buy a full size one. It really lengths, and separate like no other. I get volume as well.

I’m on my third tube of Maybelline Lash Sensational Sky High mascara. It’s got just the right amount of lengthening and thickening, and never smudges – smudging is a huge problem for me, and this really delivers.

Heroine Make Long And Curl Waterproof Mascara! It is one that I actually repurchased before using it for as long as was safely possible. I definitely understand the hype over this mascara! It is great for holding a curl, even amplifying it, not flaking or smudging even if I’ve worn it for 12+ hours, and making my lashes look almost as if I’m wearing falsies! Would highly recommend this to anyone else who struggles with straight, wimpy lashes that don’t hold a curl well after using their eyelash curler.

MAC In Extreme Dimension Waterproof.

In the last years it became the go-to mascara for me when I need to purchase one (usually I get a free mini one way or another). I personally don’t like a lot of volume and emphasis on my lashes, so I really like the soft natural look I get with a couple of quick coats. It adds sufficient definition, holds a bit of curl and doesn’t clump my lashes (another thing I hate about mascaras is the spidery look). And most of all, it’s waterproof; I have sensitive runny eyes, and this doesn’t smudge or transfer during the day. It’s very easy to remove with a cleansing balm.

Back when I knew they were going to do away with my favorite mascara I cornered the market on Benefit Bad Gal mascara. Eventually, I’ll have to find a replacement, until then I’m fine for awhile. Just love this mascara. Not as much as Givenchy Phenomenal Eyes mascara, but close.

Este Lauder Double Wear Smudge Proof in bkack.I have tiny, short, totally see through lashes since chemo years ago when they all fell out. The brush on this EL mascara actually can grab my lashes and deposit color. Most mascara brushes don’t find my tiny lashes.

Clinique lash doubling, though I absolutely love any Clinique mascara. They give me glossy, black, ‘mine but better’ lashes.

Fenty Full Frontal Volume Lift and Curl, I forgot that I had purchased this mascara I found it a while ago in my box of unopened mascaras and started using it. It is a lovely mascara, doesn’t clump, gives nice volume and length, I love black lashes and this delivers, and the absolute most important point for me is that it doesn’t flake or smudge.

Thrive lash extensions. I’ve tried them all. Really helps my thin, straight lashes look amazing. Doesn’t budge either, a must for my allergy eyes.

Caliray Come Hell or High Water is quite good. It darkens and thickens my lashes. No fragrance and no animal testing are added bonuses. It really does last through bad weather, workouts, gym sessions and overnighters!

I wanted to buy the mini and actually yesterday ordered the mini clean mascara lash stash from Sephora that includes it. Can’t wait to try it and maybe get the full size!
You won’t happen to know how it compares to the blinc one that is also tubing, would you?
