I know I'm always looking for the next holy grail of mascaras, and I'm sure I'm not the only one. I don't wear false lashes, mainly because I'm terrible at applying them. I also just don't have the patience to do it.
One of the many "fun" things about going through menopause is that you can lose your eyelashes. Yup that's right, it happened to me. They tend to fall out in clumps, so I had major spaces in-between my lashes! Thank goodness Latisse was launched at that time. It completely changed how my lashes grew and looked.
Now, at whatever life stage you find yourself in all women are trying to make their lashes look full and luscious. Since I admittedly have a minor addiction to Sephora I enjoy trying out every mascara under the sun. Here are my top 5 mascara choices to guarantee longer and fuller lashes without clumps or flaking.
This is a great mascara to throw on when you’re running errands, or not doing a full face of makeup. I use this mascara when I’m going for a more soft look. It doesn’t give you lush or thick lashes, but instead a very simple lifted wide-eyed look that will hold for 12 hours. I always use this on my bottom lashes no matter what mascara I am using on my top.
From here we're going for the big bold look. This mascara will last all day and night! One of my favorite things is you can build massive volume without your lashes looking clumpy. It was made to layer beautifully. The pitch black color is perfect and does not fade. It also is formulated with Provitamin B5, which will support natural lash thickness and strength. So if your lashes are thin or falling out, this product could really help. You will definitely get big volume with this BADgal!
I just started using this mascara about 2 months ago. I received a sample from Sephora, and I fell in love with it! This mascara quickly became one of my go-to mascaras. Stila Huge Extreme Lash Mascara is a high drama formula that will give you volume, length, and curl. It's long wearing with a deep black color that does not fade. This is another formula that is made for building bold and volumous lashes. It's also been ophthalmologist tested, and will work for those of us with sensitive eyes.
I LOVE, LOVE this KUSH mascara. It gives you thick, massive volume with just one coat. The color is so intense that it looks like you're wearing false lashes. This mascara has fibers, which I'm usually not a fan of since they tend to flake. The big selling point with the brand is that the mascara is made with Cannabis Oil, which conditions your lashes. The Hemp-derived cannabis oil hydrates your lashes even after you've removed your mascara. LOVE this one!
This was a hard choice. The Milk Makeup KUSH High Volume Mascara was a close runner up, but I had to go with the Hourglass Caution Extreme. This is a new product from Hourglass, and it is amazing! This is an all-in-one mascara that delivers length, crazy volume, and a big lift. The name says it all CAUTION EXTREME! This one is not for the shy. It gives a big dramatic look. The brush is really different, and helps extend your lashes. I know every mascara that comes out now says the brush is innovative, but this one really is. The smaller side of the brush is perfect for definition. The fuller side really lays the mascara from root-to-tip for big volume with just one coat. This mascara is also buildable, and the ultra black color achieves that false lashes look. Hourglass killed it with this formula, and I'll be wearing this one for a very long time.
