MASCARA | REVIEWS

Mascara is the one makeup products I honestly use every single day, whether I'm wearing my glasses and just heading to the grocery store, I still put on a coat of mascara.  Because of this, I've tried a number of mascaras throughout the years and have found my favorite and my not so favorite mascaras. Listed above are 6 mascaras that all can be found at SEPHORA, each I have once owned and tried until I either ran out, or the product dried out.  So here are my personal reviews...

1.

NARS-Larger than Life Mascara

I really wanted to like this product, it was one of the lesser expensive mascaras found at SEPHORA, but to be honest it just didn't work for me.  I tried it out for a week, and everyday my eyes were irritated by the formula of the mascara.  The applicator was nice, and it was honestly really easy to remove at night, but it's only downfall was that it really irritated my eyes.  I would recommend this mascara for those who do not have sensitive eyes and I would rate this a 3.4 out of 5 stars.  

2.

Givenchy-Phenomen'Eyes Mascara

I was slightly taken a back by the brush applicator, (yes, the weird spiky ball) but honestly it is my favorite mascara at SEPHORA.  The small brush allows you to get every single lash, and the formula is fantastic.  The product never irritated my eyes, and it gave a natural finish with just one coat, but it allowed to build up the product if you wanted a more dramatic look.  This mascara was also easy to take off.  I would give this mascara a 4. 5 out of 5 stars because of the formula and it's amazing applicator. I also gave this mascara to my mom, and she loved it as well!

3. 

Yves Saint Laurent - Luxurious Mascara

When I first purchased this product, I had super high hopes, I loved the gold packaging and the applicator seemed to apply the mascara quite nicely onto my lashes.  The downfall of this product was that it dried out so extremely fast that I never used up the entire product.  I also found it extremely difficult to wash off, and would spend countless minutes attempting to rub it off in the mirror after I showered. I would give this product a 3 out of 5 stars only because I did like how the product made my lashes look, but I did not like the removal process.

.Benefit-BADgal Mascara

I received a sample size of this product in one of Benefit's value sets, and I really didn't find anything special about this mascara.  It flaked throughout the day (even with the lightest coat) and gave me the unfortunate "panda eyes" look at the end of the day.  I love Benefit's products, but this one was a huge let down. I would rate this mascara a 2.8 out of 5. 

5.

Diorshow Mascara

I purchased this mascara because of it's huge cult following (I mean seriously it's raved about all over youtube and on beauty blogs) but found it to be at best comparable to a drug store mascara.  It was difficult to remove, and gave me those awful "spider leg" lashes.  If that's the look you're going for, run and purchase this product, if not I would recommend getting another mascara because this one leans towards the expensive side and it truly doesn't live up to it's reputation.  I would rate this product a 2.8 out of 5. 

6.

Benefit's They're real Mascara

This mascara is much better than Benefit's BADgal mascara, but I still find it a little difficult to remove. It did however last though out the day, but since I like to have the option of a more natural look, I found this product a bit overdone in it's execution.  I would rate this a 3.9 out of 5.

Overall I would recommend the Givenchy mascara out of these 6, but my absolute favorite is the

Chanel Mascara

(seriously it's AMAZING).  I hope my reviews were somewhat helpful to some of you.
