I’ve been looking for a really good drugstore brand mascara for a LONNNNNNNGGGG time, some work for me, some don’t. It’s all trial and error. Tons of ladies rave about Cover Girl’s Lashblast mascara and I absolutely hated it, it didn’t do anything for my lashes.. some say Maybelline’s Colossal Mascara didn’t work for them, I loved it!
Sooo, with that being said.. I grabbed a couple mascaras and tried them out. Gotta love late night trips to Wal-Mart or CVS.. I never seem to leave without buying some sort of beauty product. I really need rehab or something. ;)
L'Oreal Voluminous Mascara
What it claims: Uniquely formulated to resist clumping, soften lashes, and build lashes to five times their natural thickness. Patented Volume Maximizing Brush™ thickens lashes evenly and smoothly, leaving them soft with virtually no flakes, smudges, or clumps.
Neutrogena Healthy Volume Waterproof
Conditioning waterproof formula with a touch of olive plumps lashes from the inside out. Supersized Visible Volume brush quickly coats each lash with rich, volume-building color. No clumps, smudges or flakes.
Excuse my sad excuse for lashes mascara-free.. (After seeing these pictures.. Lilash is looking like a GREAT option. I just haven't been able to justify the price. LOL)
Left to right: Neutrogena, Voluminous, Bare Lashes.
My thoughts? I can see CLEARLY which one pops out to me, and it's definitely the Neutrogena.. it makes my sparse eyelashes look like I actually have some. The application is not messy or too wet.. I've come across mascaras that are super-dooper messy and by the time you've applied it, your eyeshadow is messed up because it has smeared. Voluminous? I liked it, but I'm not 100% in love with it, it tends to clump a bit.. but it definitely lengthens and adds a bit of volume. :-)
I will definitely repurchase the Neutrogena mascara!
Your thoughts? Have you purchased one of these mascaras? If so, what was your opinion on them?
