BEST MASCARA EVER. Falsies in a tube?? 👀
Want big, bold, voluminous lashes?? Well I have found it! I have always said that if I’m stranded on a desert island, I will only need a solid tube of mascara. A good mascara is a life changer. I had been getting lash extensions since the beginning of the year, but since the pandemic hit, I wanted to find a mascara that was comparable to the lash extension effects. Not an easy task! After YEARS of searching and testing and trying, I have finally found the BEST mascara. I have tried them all: better than sex, diorshow, Chanel l’volume (a close second best), L’Oréal voluminous, the falsies, tarte, essence, benefit...ALL OF THEM. LANCÔME - Monsieur Big Mascara

Days 2 & 3 of Beauty ⭐️
To make up for being behind a day with my Macy’s 25 Days of Beauty Advent Calendar, I’m reviewing days 2 and 3 today! Yay! After a disappointing first day, the second and third have made up for it! Inside were Lancôme’s Monsieur Big Mascara and Lavido’s Age Away Hydrating Cream. First off, the mascara is FANTASTIC. It lengthens, curls and volumizes. I’ve wanted to try it for awhile, but the price tag kept me from it. This sample has opened my eyes though and I might just have to buy the full size! Swipe through for pics of it on me. Second, the hydrating cream is also really nice. I’ve actually had the full size in the past and I’ve found it to be very hydrating, very nice to wear and it also smells beautifully! The cream has ingredients like evening primrose, pumpkin seed and sea buckthorn to help hydrate, improve skin tone and reduce fine lines. I’m a fan! Have you gotten any makeup/skincare-related advent calendars? There are so many out there, I’d love to hear about some good ones! LANCÔME - Monsieur Big Mascara lavido - Age Away Hydrating Cream
In my opinion this is a pretty okay mascara. It lengthens a bit; not too much. It adds volume okay. I love big bold dramatic lashes, but I hate glue on lashes. This mascara just does okay. I found it difficult to work with and hard to get my lashes separated and fluffy. The big negative I have is that this flakes! Now, bear in mind I haven’t been using a setting spray while using this mascara. I’ve run out and just have bothered/remembered to get more. So that may be what I’m doing wrong. However, just by itself it flakes and it can get into my eyes and just irritate them to no end. As far as just okay mascaras I am positive you can get something similar for way cheaper. In my opinion there are far better mascaras out there that don’t make you seriously regret buying them at full price. I won’t be repurchasing this product so I just can’t recommend it. Mascaras I can recommend: • tarte - Lights, Camera, Lashes 4-in-1 Mascara • LANCÔME - HYPNÔSE DOLL LASHES Mascara • LANCÔME - Hypnôse Drama Instant Full Volume Mascara I’m still testing out the LANCÔME - Monsieur Big Mascaraand essence - Lash Princess False Lash Effect Mascaraso I will post those in a bit as I test each out for a full three months.
Amazing Mascara Alert!! (Inexpensive)
I have short, EXTREMELY straight eyelashes. I have never been able to find a product that curls and lengthens them without falling flat in a few hours. However, that has changed! I’ve started using a combination of Etude House Dr. Mascara Fixer ($6.50 on Amazon) and Heroine Make Long and Curl waterproof mascara ($9.49 on Amazon). I have spent so much money on so many mascaras, but this $16 combo is doing the trick. Simply curl lashes, apply fixer and apply mascara. Make sure to remove with a good, oil-based cleanser or waterproof mascara remover.KISSME - Kiss Me Waterproof Lengthening and Curling Mascara ETUDE - Dr.Mascara Fixer For Perfect Lash

My killer mascara duo 👊🏼💢
I have pretty long and thick lashes already, but this mascara duo really takes things from 0-100! For some reason I have lashes that absolutely WILL NOT hold a curl, so I always have to buy the waterproof versions of mascaras. That is the only way that they will hold any sort of curl at all. My other secret is that I head up my eyelash curler with a lighter (or hair dryer) beforehand. After curling my lashes, I begin applying Too Faced - Better Than Sex Waterproof Mascara to my lashes form root to tip. I feel like this mascara is perfect for thickening lashes, and is much thicker than the Loreal Telescopic. Once I have applied enough of the Better Than Sex, I immediately begin applying L'ORÉAL - Telescopic Waterproof Mascara . I feel like the brush on the Telescopic is perfect for brushing out any clumps from the Better Than Sex. The Telescopic is also amazing for lengthening!! For me, using the two of these together is a perfect combination. Plus, the curl lasts all day long!!! #CheriePartner
Too Faced-Better Than Sex Waterproof Mascara
The BEST mascara for less than $10!
Y’all. I have tried MANY MANY brands of mascara and thanks to my favorite beauty guru I have found the perfect match. If you haven’t heard of Essence Lash Princess Mascara, you HAVE to try it! I purchased mine at Ulta and with this mascara, I don’t even need false lashes. It does not transfer and dried quickly for a beautiful finish over my subtle golden eye. I would recommend this above better than sex from too faced and it has an amazing price tag. Cha Ching! essence - Lash Princess False Lash Effect Mascara

Mascara primer that WORKS 👏🏼
I have long, super straight lashes that just don’t like to stay curled but I found the one, the only primer that keeps my lashes curled and in place all day! The ETUDE - Dr.Mascara Fixer For Perfect Lash is such an amazing product. You can use it both to prime your lashes before mascara and/or after to make your mascara waterproof, it’s sooo good! It has tiny fibers that adhere to your natural lashes for extra length and it works great on brows too, gives you that soap brow look but a lot more convenient! You can get it on Yesstyle for like $6 which I think it’s a great price. Definitely recommend this primer 🙏🏼 it just works!

Can’t Live Without It: My Fave Brow Gel!
I have always had very thick eyebrows, until I decided to tweeze them all off at the age of 13 because everyone kept teasing me about them! I wish I had known how much thick brows would come into style just a few years later. For the longest time I tried to grow them back out, and they always just looked awkward and patchy, and I could never get them to lay the right way. They are already super dark, so any imperfections are very easy to spot. I tried filling in my brows for a while but that made them look cartoonish. I had tried cheap brow gels in the past, but they always made my brows feel stiff and flaked everywhere. When I got a Sephora gift card for my birthday last year, I thought I’d try out a higher-end brow gel. I ended up purchasing the Anastasia Beverly Hills clear brow gel and OMG- it transformed my brows. Somehow the perfect amount of gel always ends up on the end of the brush so that I do not have to wipe off any excess, and it doesn’t make my brows stiff!! It lifts them into place and makes them look so much more voluminous. It lasts all day without flaking. I love this as a product I can use on my no-makeup days that isn’t noticeable but still helps me to look more polished. It is a little bit pricey for a clear brow gel at $22, but this is now a product that I know I can’t live without!
Mascara before& after Pictures are back for good! using loreal telescopic mascara 🔭❤️ - Review: The wand is so slim and different than any I‘ve seen before. It coats every single lash and makes them extremely long without any clumps etc. It’s the best mascara out there if you want extremely long, seperated and almost spidery looking lashes ❤️ It doesn‘t smudge either 😍 don‘t buy it if you want lots of volume tho
