Mascara Meticulous (pt.2)

This is the second part of mascara reviews, if you're missing out the 1st part you can find it right here.

Before I start, let me tell you that I have typical asian lashes, they're straight. I have come across so many disappointing mascara (and eye lash curler, of course) but if you read my previous review, my HG mascara so far is Maybelline Full'n'Soft in Waterproof formula. Honorary mention would go to NYX Doll Eye Long Lash mascara which has the tiny fibers that make my lashes look obviously longer.

Now in this post I'm doing reviews of another 4 mascara. I decided not to do Thevi Mascara because I don't think anyone'd interested on trying and it doesn't really do anything for my lashes.

Other than that....let's start!

  • Maybelline Volum'Express
Verdict: I like Maybelline mascaras but this baby doesn't like me. It clumps and weighing my lashes down. Half of my tube was drying out already so towards the end the consistency was just flaky & ... meh.

  • Maybelline Lash Stylist
Verdict: This is the one with a comb brush. I mostly use it for my lower lash line since it's tiny but whenever I tried to use it on my upper lashes they started to clump but you can keep combing until you find the seperation you'd prefer. The consistency is on the wetter side but I really like it. Since the one that I have is WP, it holds the curl very nicely.

  • Cover Girl Lash Blast
Verdict: My newest baby, I love this mascara and I am so glad because I've been wanting to try it for so long. The brushes are fat and it sucks to applying lower lash line but they do tremendous job making my lashes look long. This is my new favorite.

  • Benefit Bad Girl Blue
Verdict: You may be thinking, why the hell would I buy a blue mascara? Honestly I don't know because it was a gift from my dear friend Ann. I believe this is part of the Benefit GWP (gift with purchase) at Sephora a while back (the one with makeup bag). I have to say I really like this mascara, because it's actually brighten up my eyes and the blue is pretty subtle (you won't notice until you're staring close). One negative side, if applied with heavy hand it can ended up clumping.

Hope that helps anyone. I have a new mascara Rimmel Sexy Curve which I haven't even opened, any thoughts/raves & rants?

Hey girl! Thanks for all the pics and reviews!

Yay for Maybelline Full-n-Soft! It's my HG too! The waterproof one! LOL! My second is Rimmel GlamEyes. I've been wondering about the Sexy Curve, but I think I'll wait to see how you like it! :)

haven't heard anything about the rimmel :\ but i'm glad for your review of lashblast! it's sitting in its package waiting for the rest of my mascaras to expire ;)

Thanks for the reviews! I have the benefit bag gal blue too, and I haven't used it because i thought blue lashes are weird, but now after seeing your photo, it doesn't look too bad at all, the blue is pretty subtle and the results seems pretty good too :)

Oooh, thanks for the reviews! I'm currently using Heroine Kiss Me and I like it way more than FullnSoft WP b/c it holds a curl w/o me needing to use Shi's mascara base underneath. I'll do a review on that soon. =)

great review! i'm not much of a lash blast fan just bc it clumps on me too easily.. my newest love is the maybelline colossal in waterproof which just came out recently.. always like maybelline's formula bc you can easily build it up without clumping.. =)

Thanks for the reviews! I tried Full n' Soft after reading your reviews and love it! Recently I got addicted to Lash Blast, and I'm glad to hear that it works for you too =)
