I agree wholeheartedly πŸ˜€ For some reason it doesn’t get great reviews on Makeupalley/Makeuptalk πŸ™ But I LOVE IT. It works amazingly for me and all my other mascaras are gathering dust lol

Maybelline Falsies has replaced Covergirl Marathon (discontinued). Falsies waterproof holds a curl and stays on all day and removes easily with makeup remover at night.

Clinique’s Lash Doubling mascara. Ironically, it’s become my favorite after being ignored because it came from a GWP. It’s the only one that goes on well (read: without clumping), is buildable (again, without clumping!), and lengthens. It doesn’t volumize all that well, or noticeably, for me – however, that’s not something that I’m looking for (& I don’t believe it’s marketed to do so). I have relatively dense lashes, so I just want my mascara to make them “pop” more.
Plus, at ~$14, it won’t break the bank – and it’s not like drugstore mascaras are all that cheap either. I’d rather throw down the extra $6 and get something that actually works.

Eyes to Kill is my favorite evening mascara. I’m not eyelash challenged to begin with, so when I put this on–whoa, baby! Long, longer, longest :-). Armani’s E to K has become legend and with good reason.

My favorite day mascara is by Edward Bess. It gives length and curl without looking heavy or unnatural. Long, uplifted, perfectly separated lashes make my day.

Both mascaras are pricy, but when you find what works, it is so worth it.

Rimmel sexy curves. I think it gives me the look of false lashes.. I love love love it!
I used to constantly try different mascaras but I’ve stuck with sexy curves for over a year now.

Same here! Sexy Curves is my absolute favorite mascara and I’ve been using it on an almost daily basis for over a year! It makes my lashes look huge

I like Falsies, but I also love Rimmel Glam Eyes. I wanna upgrade to Dior or MAC, but I have to have a excellent review before I spend $20+ on mascara.

I can’t believe there are no Estee Lauder mascara lovers on this list! Estee Lauder Sumptuous is hands down the best volumizing formula, and More Than Mascara is fab for everyday natural looking lashes. Also the Lauder primer is amazing! The only downside is they all cost over $20

it fluctuates between rimmel’s maxx volume (pink tube) and loreal’s telescopic (carbon black). rimmel’s gives me great defined volume and the telescopic gives me insanely long, dark lashes. LOVE IT!

Always Maybelline Full & Soft! Makes my eyelashes look longer, fuller, and thicker while still looking completely natural. Its my Holy Grail mascara.

Make Up For Ever Smoky Lash, for me it’s not really fantastic… I prefer Phenomen’Eyes from Givenchy but by the way I have to use that one

Maybelline’s Colossal mascara; makes my lashes look super long, it’s almost as if it’s a tube of false lashes. And Australis’ Mega Lash.

I work ten hour days, so I easily wear my mascara 13 to 15 hours daily before I wash my face. Plush lash has never smudged on me, nor has it ever flaked off.

Mascaras were a trouble for me for a long time. Even waterproof ones gave me racoon eyes. But not anymore! The Estee Lauder Turbolash is amazing. I never thought I would splurge on mascara, but for me, that one is totally worth it. Their Sumptuous Mascara is also amazing!

Maybelline Collosal for everyday natural look
Lancome Hypnose for more made up everyday look
MUFE Smokey Lash for nights out <—amazing but so hard to get off

I totally agree. When I use it with my lancome primer, my lashes are so intense. Both of them were $80 plus together but I have never regretted it. I use my less expensive Mac zoomlash for everyday wear. I dont know why it has not been mentioned but its a great one as well.

Clinique Lash Doubling! Undeniably the best mascara I have used in my entire life. I could rave and rave about it and will forever repurchase it unless I find something better (which I don’t think will be happening).

This mascara is sooo under-rated. MY HG and I have thin blond lashes, this stuff is amazing! Lasts forever, no clumping, doesn’t smudge, plumps and lengthens, couldn’t ask for more!

I’ve been alternating between 3 depending on what type of look I want.

For dramatic: Too Faced Lash Injection in black

For everyday wear: Buxom in black

For natural: Clinique High Lengths in black-brown

Maybelline Full & Soft! I’ve tried higher-end mascaras and other drug store options, but nothing has ever topped Full & Soft for me in the last 10 years or so. My lashes are long and straight and I wear contacts, so I like the lightweight, non-clumping formula. I do wish it held curl better though!

Maybelline Full and Soft is my total HG!!! The only way I’ll stray is if I have a big evening out..then it’s L’oreal Voluminous πŸ™‚

I’ve been using Inimitable Intense as well. I’ll be going back to my all time favorite original Inimitable when this tube is finished because the formula just seems so clumpy.

A blogger sent me a lovely gift of deluxe samples and I discovered my new favorite mascara – Trish McEvoy. I will have to go and purchase a full size tube of it. It applies like a dream and comes off so easily with my Purity cleanser. It just comes off in fiberous clumps which scared me at first but I’m use to it now =)

CoverGirl’s Lashblast Volumizing…love it been on it for about 8 months! =) I have naturally curly lashes so I just need something to make em look thicker and fuller!!!

I love Bare Minerals Flawless Definition too! And I am picky about mascara. I’ve tried a ton of different ones and I think this may be my personal favorite!

Right now I’m using Lash Blast Fusion and I like it pretty well. I tried out Falsies but I have a major issue with it flaking and irritating my eyes πŸ™ I had a mascara conversation with a couple of co-workers this morning and they had the same problem with it. I use Rimmel Sexy Curves at times as well.

Eyeko Magic Mascara. Gives my eyelashes much needed volume and length and doesn’t smudge. I can have it on for nearly an entire day with no problem. It also holds curls well πŸ™‚

Lise Watier 24 hour Glam. Most amazing mascara EVER.. stays on for ages!

And if I want a downplayed and natural look my go-to is Maybelline Full & Soft.

I’m not one to stay loyal to only one mascara because I love to try new ones, but the one I always keep on hand is MAC Plushlash. It is amazing.

Let’s be honest, I love trying new mascaras. Right now I have my eye on Diorshow, but the mascara I keep coming back to is L’oreal Voluminous. It works for what I want and isn’t too pricey.

I love Bare Escentuals’ Boxum Lash. It doesn’t clump and it makes my lashes look sooo long and separated. I also love Fresh’s Supernova and Firebird mascaras. Great quality. I just wish they were less expensive.

l’oreal Volume Million Lashes, it’s absolutely amazing, I just want to try out MUFE smokey lash, and if thats not as good, then I think I may have found my HG mascara in volume million.

fiberwig… and I’m really surprised no one else has mentioned it yet. It is a tubbing mascara that doesn’t smudge and comes off easily with warm water.

Ive been loving maybelline turbo boost mascara in waterprrof, very black. they jsut did a re-packaging which confused me for a second; i was scared it was gone! within the past 2 months i’ve tried mayb colossal, falsies, that other mayb curling mascara and the thickening mascara (those black tubes with the orange and yellow fonts…), loreal lashout, cover girl lash blast, cover girl lash blast length and some rimmel mascara in a hot pink tube; ALL of them in waterproof and they CANNOT hold a candle to my beloved maybelline turbo boost. IF i could afford chanel inimitable in waterproof, it *might* be a contendor for being a fave like my turbo boost…

I usually go to Plushlash too, but recently I lost mine, and I decided to try something new. My new go to is Lise Watier’s Mascara Wow. I find it seperates and lenghthens so well!

cover girl lash blast length waterproof. the brush is precise and i don’t get any clumpiness. it reminds me of MAC studio fix lash, but at a better price. i refuse to spend more than $7.00 on mascara.

I use 2 – Maybelline XXL Intense to start with (makes my lashes longer and thicker), followed by Maybelline Colossal in Glam Black (makes the lashes even thicker again plus super glossy) πŸ™‚

Loreal Voluminous Carbon Black and Maybelline Lash Stiletto. I promised myself I’d finish off all my drugstore mascaras (or wait until they dry out) before I try a higher end one! They work ok I suppose…

I’m really loving the L’Oreal Telescopic Explosion (waterproof) mascara. It makes my lashes look like they were already really long and it gives a lot of volume and nice separation.
