Mascara Battle

posted on: 13 June 2009


I decided to do a battle of my mascara's. I tend to buy drugstore mascara as I know I have to throw these out every 3 months. For the past couple of months I have been reaching for the same mascara and now consider this my HG mascara. I won't tell you which one it is yet but I decided to do this post to see if any of my other unloved mascaras can win me over. Please not my eyes get redder and redder as it goes along, rubbing off 8 mascaras within the space of 15mins really does hurt ^_^

All Pics curled with Shu Uemura (the best) eyelash curler 

The Contenders:
Rimmel Volume Flash
Loreal Voluminous Carbon Black
Majolica Majorca Lash Expander
Revlon Fabulash
Maybelline Great Lash
Benefit Bad Gal
Barry M Volumises-Lengthens-Curls
Max Factor False Lash Effect





(1)

Rimmel Volume Flash
Pros: Lengthens and seperates
Cons: Not as much volume as I was expecting
Score: 3/5


(2)

Max Factor False Lash Effect
Pros: Makes lashes appear fuller and fluffier
Cons: Big ass brush which kept hitting my top eyelid
Score: 3/5


(3)

Barry M Volumises/Lengthens/Curls
Pros: Nice brush thats easy to work with
Cons: Doesn't really do much diffrence, no volume, tiniest of length and didn't curl
Score: 2/5


(4)

Benefit Bad Gal
Pros: Easy to work with, No clumping, Nice fan effect
Cons: Bit pricier then the others
4/5


(5)

Maybelline Great Lash
Pros: Cheap, small brush gets into the tiniest lashes, Natural looking
Cons: Not much volume
Score: 3/5


(6)

Revlon Fabulash
Pros: Lengthens and seperates, buildable wihtout clumps
Cons: Drys up pretty quickly
Score: 4/5


(7)

Majolica Majorca Lash Expander
Pros: Lengthens, seperates and makes the curl last, almost like hairspray for your lashes
Cons: Hard to remove, Hard to get hold of if in the UK
Score 5/5


(8)

Loreal Voluminous Carbon Black
Pros: Volume Volume Volume
Cons: Rumours of discontinue? can weigh lashes down after a while, clumps quite easily
Score 4.5


The end decision is that Majolica Majorca is still my HG mascara, this hasn't yet been beaten and its the only mascara which holds my curl until the end of the day =)

Mascaras yet to try:

  15. i think majolica majorca looks the best on your lashes. i have it but its so hard to remove and i always end up losing a few lashes :(. You should really try Lancome Hypnose and YSL Fauxcils. their both my HG mascaras but i prefer YSL's :). Its pricier but very worth the money.

  19. DIORSHOW IS AMAZING great choice and i highly recommend you try Too Faced LASH INJECTION it's my absolute favourite. It will make maybellines great lash look like utter crap! : ) good luck
