BEST DRUGSTORE MASCARA
So I’ve tried many different mascaras. And although some were okay, I ALWAYS go back to this one. And I highly recommend you trying this one too! MAYBELLINE - Volum' Express The Rocket Mascara
start by curling your eyelashes with an eyelash curler (i use the one by Revlon)
hold the curler at the very base of your lashes and hold it there for around 5-10 sec
after letting go, to increase separation of lashes, you can go in with a clean/dry spoolie (no mascara on) and brush it through your lashes to ensure they’re all separated before application.
then go in! open the tube and wipe any excess mascara on the wand, onto the rim of the bottle (that’s only if there’s too much on the wand)
apply it from the base of your lashes and slowly start wiggling the wand while you move up on your lashes to ensure the mascara coats each of them. (Wiggle it till you reach the end of your lashes)
don’t forget your inner and outer lashes as well!
if you still want more length and volume, you can apply mascara from the BACK of your lashes
brush from the back and move the wand upwards and coat the lashes even further.
Grab that dry spoolie again and brush through your lashes until they separate.
if you lost any curl during application, you can recurl your lashes from the base. (but i don’t recommend this step unless you are VERY careful and not heavy handed with it because some people have had horror stories from doing this) I only sometimes do this if I want extra curl, but I’m always extremely careful and only LIGHTLY curl it at the base.And that’s it! Yup! I only use ONE coat of this mascara! Hope you guys give this one a try, it is truly MY FAV!

Highly Rated is Underrated
My lashes are pin-straight. For years I settled with volumizing mascaras that looked great for a couple hours and then inevitably fell flat, but last year I set out to find something better. I tried several drugstore options (and a mini Milk Kush). I liked a lot of them, but each had a fatal flaw. Great Lash Curved held my curl the best (and even curled my lashes when I couldn’t find my curler?!) but smudged. Lash Paradise gave me a beautiful fluffy effect but only stayed curled half the day. Colossal Volume Express was a Colossal fail (although the cat-eye version was not bad). That brings me to Milani. ⭐️MILANI - Highly Rated 10-in-1 Volume Mascara On the site, this is listed as an Allure Best of Beauty winner and an “Influencer Favorite” (whatever that means). It claims to lift, volumize, define, separate, thicken, and condition... and apparently it does 4 other things too. Milani even calls the brush a magic wand for goodness sake. For $9, the price was right. All I can say is I’m so glad I gave this a try and I’m honestly shocked this is not more popular. It gives me the fullness of Lash Paradise and the curl of Great Lash, all without flaking, smudging, or going flat. If that were not enough, this could not be easier to wash off at the end of the day. I apply after wiping off excess as I pull out the wand- I find it easier to build up this way. On my 2nd tube! Anyone else have a budget mascara fave?
MILANI-Highly Rated 10-in-1 Volume Mascara
This is the best mascara I’ve ever used!! 😍 Under $10!🤪🥰 I can’t tag the product because they only have the waterproof version 😩 (let me know if you guys want to know why you shouldn't wear waterproof mascaras). In this picture I didn’t even curl my eyelashes! This was only 2 coats. I absolutely love this mascara!! I get compliments every time I wear it!! I 10/10 would recommend!! 🥰

The first photo is before, the second photo is after I curled my lashes and put on the mascara, the third photo is how it looked after 5 minutes. I don’t like this as a mascara but I’m only giving it a 3 stars because it works really good on eyebrows. MAYBELLINE - Great Lash Clear 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

New Mascara Samples
(I know these mascaras are not recent releases, but they are new to me!) In the last few weeks I have been using two mascara samples from Sephora and wanted to share my thoughts! As someone who rushes to get ready in the morning, I use just mascara, eyebrow pencil, and sometimes a bit of concealer for my daily makeup. Unless it’s picture day at school, I don’t really feel the need to use a lot of makeup for just a workday with my kiddos! The Charlotte Tilbury Legendary Lashes (Volume 2) applies really well, I didn’t need to use a lot because it gave me instant volume and length. I really liked how full this made my lashes look! Bad Gal Bang from Benefit gave some great length, but I wanted just a little more volume. This one also would run and smudge a little bit more the the Legendary Lashes. Overall, if you’re looking for volume go with the Charlotte Tilbury mascara. But if you’re more focused on length, then Bad Gal Bang might be better. If my mascara budget increases sometime soon, I’ll probably pick up one of these in a full size! 😊
