    Default Ladies!! Or men who wear make up.

    I would like some beauty advice. The first question is what is your favorite mascarra?

    I used to use lancome's intencils which has long been discontinued. It was insane for lengthening without clumping or drying out too fast. Now I am using cover girls exact lash which doesn't even come close to as good for lengthening, dries out way to fast, and is just alright. I don't want to keep buying products that advertise correctly but work like crap.

    So, what is your favorite mascarra and why?

    Thanks!

    Lancome's Definicils is probably still my favourite, but is pricier than I'd like. I've tried a bunch of other drugstore stuff and have like Loreal's Bare Essecuals the best out of the lot for every day mascara (it's spelled some weird way like that). I got some at the dollar store for discount and was very pleasantly surprised. I've tried Maybelline stuff (several kinds) and not been wowed the way many reviewers seem to be. I've tried the 1000 Lashes stuff by Loreal and didn't love it either (it smells funny). I've been mostly happy (though not astounded) by a bunch of the Cover Girl ones that have that funny coloured brush (Yeah, I'm a sucker for packaging).

    I use the Covergirl lash blast in the purple tube. I already have really long dark lashes so I am mainly just going for a bit darker, and a bit more length because it looks better that way.

    Do you have a Sephora by you? There is a fun kiosk there that you can try about 20 different kinds of mascara, and they have codes to show what the mascara is best for (length, curling, volume, etc).

    sephora is awesome for trying stuff out...i don't care a whole lot about mascara actually but i use loreal voluminous or something like that) and it's fine.

    I like Yves Rocher Luminelle Ultra Volume mascara, but it is a French company - not sure whether it is available in North America (where I think you are!). It might be available by mail order. I live in the UK, and they don't have shops here but they have a great mail order service.

    It lasts really well and is good for everyday, but to be honest, it's not hyper-lengthening. I sometimes used to use one of those weird mascaras where you put on a "lengthening coat" first and then the normal mascara coat - and it definitely lengthened but I think little bits tended to come off by the end of the day. I prefer something more straightforward anyway and I can't remember what the heck it was called. It might have been L'Oreal.

    I agree with Fidelia, don't think Maybelline is the best quality.

    @_@ I know nothing about make-up.. But mascara makes my eyes feel dry and watery when I apply it.. I wonder if that's just because im not used to it.

    Something I discovered by putting mascara on in the car on the way to work (when I was a teenager living in Canada in the winter) (from the passenger seat, not while driving!!), is that no matter what kind you use, it goes on smoother without clumps if you warm it up a bit first.

    So I'll usually put it on the inside of my pants' waist band near my hips for a few minutes while I'm doing other things, to warm it up first. (Does that make sense?) When it's warmed up a bit, it glides on nice and smooth with no clumps. Even now that I live in Southern Cal, I still do this.

    (Mascara and a bit of eyeliner on my top lid are the only makeup I wear. I'm blonde, so without it, you can't see my eyelashes.)

    Yay, glad someone else can benefit from this, and without having to live through a Canadian winter!

    I'd be interested to know if you like the results....

    I was going to say I really like the cover girl exact lash something or other (it comes in a skinny purple tube and has a purple brush that looks like plastic caterpillar legs) because it has a subtle look, doesn't go on too thick and doesn't flake bits off into my eyes throughout the day. I like the covergirl eyelighters and probably all the ones with the same brush, for the same reason. Sooo I guess we have different taste.

    That's for everyday use though, I don't really have a good "going out so look at my eyeeeees" mascara. Eyelash curler does more than any mascara does anyway.

    I don't find that any mascara clumps if you wiggle the brush back and forth. Unless it's really really old and gross, maybe.
