Mascara Wars

L'Oreal Voluminous Mascara For Lashes, Carbon Black 335 1 ea

I consider myself a beauty editor in my head because I have tried so many products.
I can give honest opinions, not sure if the editors at real magazines have reasons for their endorsements!
I am always looking for the right place for my collection. I have settled on two places, one drawer full in the bathroom and the a Container store clear box for the ones I have yet to try. in the closet I also have back ups for the ones I really like.
My first ones were Cover Girl but working in a retail store environment really changes your exposure to cosmetics, big time!

See my reviews below..........of course after curling(Shu Umura or Kevin Aucoin, invest in a really good one)

Best of all time-.....
 LOreal Voluminous in Carbon Black. Better than any Department store brand.  Gives wonderful inky, no clump lashes. Really enhances any face and it is available at any drugstore for less than $10.00. The brush is the most manageable.
Best of all time not available in the US.....
( Max Factor Masterpiece)- gives clear defined no clump lashes.

For all those who love Dior Show, sorry I like it but it is not the best Mascara out there, the brush is too large and it does clump on occasion.

My other picks.

Any of the Loreal mascaras are really outstanding but my favorite is Voluminous

Fresh Supernova
Lancome Definicils
Lancome Oscillation.
Clinique Lash Doubling
Shu Uemura Fiber Xtension Mascara
Cover Girl Lash Blast

A primer is now a must, my favorite is Lancome Oscillation Primer, it is a great base. There are many others out there but this one really makes a difference.

I do not have any affliation with any company these are the real picks guys! Enjoy!
