I’m normally a skeptic. As a teenager, I was way into makeup as well, but only to make myself feel prettier (Hint: It doesn’t work.)

I’ve done some research on makeup in general (Primarily mascara and lipstick) and I can tell you that those “thickening and/or lengthening” mascaras are smoke and mirrors.

Thickening mascaras are literally thicker than the others. It adds more mascara to your lashes and makes the smaller ones stick to the bigger ones.

Lengthening mascaras can sometimes contain a polymer that will add miniscule length to your lashes. Generally, they just tend to be darker than the others, allowing you to see the less-tinted ends of your lashes making you think they’re longer.

Just my two cents.

My favorite mascaras are any of the mascaras from Lancome, especially definicils. Dunno about the thickening factor, but I love how my lashes look, and they Never clump or smudge. They really out perform drugstore brands. Which sucks, since they’re a good $34 up here in Canada!! : (

I have heard that L’oreal is a good dupe for Lancome, but in my opinion, there’s no comparison. Lancome all the way!

This really isn’t my favorite but its one of my cheapy faves. Its Great Lash “Lots of Lashes” by Maybelline NY.


I am wearing it in this photo:

This isn’t the best pic but I am wearing the Lots of lashes in this picture also.

This is my favorite though, its makes my lashes way bigger and thicker. ๐Ÿ™‚

Rats, I should have taken a picture of my makeup for you today before I took it off!

I use Tarte’s ‘MultiplEye’ lash primer + Tarte ‘Lights, Camera, Lashes’ mascara.

It’s AH-MA-ZING. I’ve had people ask me if I was wearing falsies before. I’ll try to remember to come back tomorrow after I do my makeup to post up a picture.

I cant stand drug store mascaras. I haven’t found a single one that I like.

Right now I go between They’re Real and Buxom Lashes. I like the They’re Real formula better, but I like the Buxom brush better.

@Sweet.Sugar.Rose:  +1. Great Lash by Maybelline is my cheapie favorite since I can’t get the good stuff in Central America.

My real favorite is BADgal Lash by Benefit.

It gives me long, thick, beautiful lashes without being clumpy. The only thing I dislike about it is that it is NOT waterproof, so if there’s possibility of tears (which for me, happens when Mufasa dies in The Lion King or when Pacey & Joey get it on for the first time on Dawson’s Creek…), I can’t use it.

On a related note, I just found this: WATERPROOF BADgal Lash! I think I’ll have to make my mom bring me some from the states in December :oX
