Top 5 Mascaras

top 5 mascaras

Yesterday was National Lash Day so I figured I would celebrating by sharing with y’all my top 5 mascaras. I have been using most of these for years and talked about my love for them in other beauty posts. They are all quite different so I will be sharing what I love most about each one and the different lash looks you can achieve with these mascaras.

Too Faced Better than Sex | I am going to start my top 5 mascaras with this one by Too Faced. This mascara has been my favorite for years and out of all 5 I have used this one the longest. There has always been so much hype around this mascara and it’s all true. It has an odd shaped brush and it’s able to lengthen your lashed while also thickening them.

It Cosmetics Superhero | This one of the newest mascaras to my collection. It has a huge wand that’s very dense but it is able to give my lashes a lot of volume. You also get a lot of product in this one and it doesn’t dry out too quickly.

L’Oreal Voluminous Carbon Black | This is the most budget friendly option. I have been buying more high end mascaras lately but this is one of the drugstore options that is just as good. It is incredibly black and is great even just to blend your lashes with falsies. It has your typical fiber mascara wand and is really a great basic mascara for anyone.

L’Oreal Voluminous Superstar | I have been buying more high end mascaras lately but this is one of the drugstore options that is just as good. It is a great mascara and primer duo and both wands are curved. I use the mascara on it’s own sometimes but it is always better with the primer. It lengthens my lashes almost to where they are touching my eyebrows and defines each lash. This can clump up if you use too much so I make sure to take my time more with this mascara.

Dior Diorshow | This is the mascara that I am currently using the most. It had been on my list to get for a long time but I finally bit the bullet in December. I instantly loved this mascara which is rare for me. This mascara defines my lashes without clumping and makes them look full. I can keep adding layers of it without it clumping up and becoming a mess.

    The L’oreal is one of my favorites! Such a good one, especially for a drug store brand! I use it everyday!

    I always loving seeing my favorite on the list – Better Than Sex!! I go back and forth between the normal formula and the waterproof and I love them both equally. I’m dying to try the Diorshow so badly. I gotta just bite the bullet at some point!

    I actually love the shape of the Better Than Sex mascara. Granted, I’ve never used it, but They’re Real by Benefit has the same shape and it really is the most efficient mascara brush that will give you longer looking and fuller lashes!

    I only tried the Dior mascara which was given to me and no plans of buying it for myself since its expensive and I don’t use it that much. The Two Faced Better than Sex is intriguing though. 🙂

    I’ve been tempted to try the Dior mascara after reading so many good reviews. I really like Tarte mascaras – both Tarteist and Lights, Camera, Lashes. My budget fave is L’Oreal Miss Manga Mega Volume.
