If you know me, you know that I am not a Morning person. I need my coffee and I need it now! (me, every morning) That’s why early mornings are always a challenge for me, so when I get ready, my makeup routine shouldn’t take long, I just don’t have time (and patience) for that. Most of the times I prefer the more natural look, so Mascara is a key item for me. This post is not sponsored, this is just something I wanted to share with you.
Here is the thing about me: I don’t care about price tag if the product is able to lift my eyelashes in the morning and keep them up until the evening. I don’t have naturally thick long eyelashes, but I manage to make my eyes more expressive by using the right mascara. I don’t use Eyelash Curler, my eyelashes are really curly (it’s a challenge to actually uncurl them in the morning). So, if you are like me or you just like good looking eyelashes, here are my 5 favorite mascaras for every budget:
My all-time favorite mascara. I’ve been using it for years, then got bored, tried something else, and then, obviously, came back to my good old friend Dior Diorshow Mascara.
Favorite thing about it: the brush allows you to control the look you create – one layer for a natural look, 2 layers for the night out.
2) Clinique High Impact Mascara
This is the best mascara for the price. It is not going to magically grow your eyelashes but it will create a natural clean look that will last.
Favorite thing about it: it is a universal mascara. No matter what kind of eyelashes you have, it will be perfect for you. The brush will put the right amount of mascara, allowing you to avoid that annoying clumps.
P.S. It sold out really fast, so Bareminerals Flawless Definition Volumizing mascara is as a great alternative.
3) Maybelline New York The Colossal Volum’ Express Mascara
Best mascara you can get in a drug store. It’s cheap but it works really well. It used to be my number one mascara in college. The brush is easy to use, and it literally opens your eyes.
Favorite thing about it: you can find it everywhere, and you can’t go wrong with price + quality.
4) Giorgio Armani Beauty Eyes to Kill Mascara
The name speaks for itself! This mascara works really well, and, most importantly, I don’t feel like my eyelashes are dry after I use it.
Favorite thing about it: it lasts the whole day – you have flawless eyelashes from 6 a.m. until 11 p.m. It also survives evening workouts.
5)URBAN DECAY Perversion Mascara
This is my favorite “early morning, not enough sleep mascara” when my eyelashes are really curly and look short. The brush lengthens, creates volume and separation between the eyelashes.
Favorite thing about mascara: creates naturally long eyelashes in a short period of time with no need for primer.
