If I could wear only one product on my eyes, it would be mascara. I love a good mascara, I’ve tried so many, I wish I blogged about them before. I recently ran out of my BareMinerals mascara and been on the hunt for a affordable one. This time around I decided to try the Covergirl and Revlon mascaras and I really love them. I know I will be re-purchasing them and I love how they make my lashes look. What are some mascaras you are currently loving right now or want to try but haven’t got around to buy? I really hope you all enjoy this post. I have a few posts coming up and I’m excited to share with you all. Would any of you be interested in a post about some of my summer reads recommendations from my collection of books? I would love to hear from you.
Revlon Volume + Length Magnified Mascara – This is a super affordable mascara, its only $5.99 at Target.
Pros – Doesn’t clump, adds volume and defines your lashes.
Cons – Dries very quickly
The only thing I didn’t like about this is the color, I bought the brown one by accident.
CoverGirl The Super Sizer Fibers Mascara – Purchased this at Target for only $5.99, so very affordable. I love how this makes my lashes look. I don’t like wearing false lashes, so this is a great alternative for me.
Pros – Applies evenly, separates and brushes lashes very good.
Cons – Dries out quickly.
For both mascaras it took me three coats to get the length and fullness that I wanted. They both look very similar. I think if I would’ve purchased the Revlon one in black, it would’ve looked the same as the Covergirl one. The whole drying fast is a pro and a con at the same time, we want our mascara to dry fast so we won’t have those sneezing accidents, (why must I always sneeze when applying mascara and get a smudged look?) and we also don’t want it to dry fast because it will be hard to layer another coat. If you want to add multiple coats, I recommend you do it really fast. But overall I’m very happy with both products. Also I didn’t curl my lashes for either eye, so that is another pro about these two, you don’t have to curl your lashes to add some length.
