Mascaras run the gamut – I’ve tried fantastic cheap ones, disappointing expensive ones, and vice versa. I was very excited when I found a bunch of high end mascaras for $13 on eBay. My friend thought this was creepy, but I assure you they were unopened and unused. Trying these new lash finishers reaffirmed my theory that different mascaras fit different moods, occasions, and personalities.

The Lowdown

My Fave: Urban Decay Supercurl

Wham bam glam! This mascara supremely impressed me, and  believe me I’ve tried dozens. Volume, length, and curl all in one? Yes please! If you’re down for glitzy day or night, this one’s for you.

My Least Fave: Laura Geller

This one is more for the demure diva. The nice thing is it’s good for layering, building up to the level you want if you don’t like to wear a lot of makeup. Just not enough pop and sizzle for me.

The Others:

Ultraflesh The Gold Standard – This thin wand gives good length without clumping. It reminds me of Clinique’s Supermascara, which I was in love with in college. It’s great for everyday use.

Too Faced Lashgasm – Love the name! It was good for volume, but I have found drugstore versions that do just as well. This would be a good date night mascara.

LashFusion XL – Great with a smoky eye! I found this one a little wet and messy, but it was superblack and volumizing. From what I could see online, there have been some great clearance sales on this lately.
