After trying all kinds at all price points, L’Oreal Voluminous in blackest black is my jam. I usually don’t get waterproof cuz I have zero patience in taking off my makeup at night, but if I’m planning to travel somewhere hot and humid, I often grab a waterproof tube.

Absolutely love Make Up For Ever – Smoky Extravagance, great curl and staying power (even in the non-waterproof variety). My eyes are super sensitive and tend to water if I wear eye makeup and I’ve never had a problem with this brand. They have great eye liners too!

Benefit Bad Gal lashes. I have long lashes so I just have a volumizing mascara.

Benefit Cosmetics Roller Lash Mascara in black. 


My mom doesn’t have the most lush eyelashes and when I saw what a difference it made to her lashes, I had to try it.  Bonus it doesn’t melt during the day (I’m oily enough that I can get raccooon eyes from mascara).

God I’ve tried so many mascaras.  I’m really pick apparently.  They either don’t do anything, flake off, or feel super gross and crunchy on my lashes.  I love volume, but hate how most volumizing mascaras feel.  I’ve found a good (enough) combo in Sol Stretchex mascara in black and Too Faced Better Than Sex in black.  For more natural looks I use Tarte’s Lights, Camera, Lashes (the purple tube) in black, or Benefit They’re Real! Primer (which only comes in brown I think, but it’s plenty dark still).

I’m still looking for my holy grail…one day….

Rimmel Scandaleyes Retro Glam in Extreme Black is my go-to, and I’ve tried a lot of upscale brands, including Chanel and Lancome. I buy it at Target and replace every 3 months.

I’m not picky with mascara. I just use drug store brands for mascara since mascara technically isn’t meant to last too long before it has to be thrown away. I usually get the L’Oreal Voluminous in the blackest black. I’ve been using this for over 20 years, back when it was in the burgundy-colored tube. 🙂

Rimmel – Lash Accelerator – black

Armani – Eyes to Kill – black/noir (probably my all time favorite)

Chanel – Le Volume de Chanel – black/noir (I prefer this once it dries out a bit)

Chanel’s le volume de chanel is EVERYTHING.  On the drugstore end, I like Covergirl Lashblast…..but honestly, Chanel is far surperior.

Covergirl Lash Blast in Black Brown or Black, forever. The only other mascara I’ve tried that comes close is Too Faced Better Than Sex mascara.
