Concealer, lipstick and mascara. That’s my makeup trusty trio that I almost always have slapped on and barely leave the house without. Out the three though, I’d say that I take my lash companion the most serious and there’s a wordy list of requirements that my mascaras need to meet. I want them to: volumise, separate, lengthen, hold curl and be easy to remove. Quite the list but thankfully the three luxurious miracle workers below live up to their claims and have my lash requirements sorted. Say hello to my ultimate lash confidence boosters…
Too Faced LashGASM Mascara (here)
If you’re regular round these parts this will come as no surprise, but on the top of my list and forever in my heart is this Too Faced gem. Where do I even start? It has everything on my mascara checklist sorted and I absolutely adore the results it gives. Out of all three, LashGASM offers the biggest separation and length and I love how bright and awake it makes my eyes look. You can layer up to three coats of this gem depending on the effect you’re after. Be it natural-looking or dramatic doll-like lashes – this baby has got you covered. My favorite thing about LashGASM is the super thin wand that gets right in the root of the lash, defining each hair beautifully. And the best part is that this mascara has some lash-loving ingredients such as Panthenol, Vitamin A & E and Jojoba Seed Oil, which hydrate and nourish the hairs. Fab. See it in action here.
YSL Shocking Mascara (here)
If you just can’t stay away from big and crazy voluminous lashes, then this YSL offering is what you need in you life. Shocking gives my lashes a massive volume boost and I constantly get asked if I have falsies on when I sport it. Pretty good evidence of the wonders it works if you ask me. It ticks all the boxes on the lengthening and separating front as well and the flawless clump and smudge-free formula is seriously on point. I also adore its intense black color – it transforms the lashes from barely there to ‘wow’ in one quick sweep. Shocking is definitely a night-out staple in my collection and it simply rocks. Oh and let’s have a moment for the beautiful luxurious tube this baby is housed in. Lovely.
Benefit They’re Real (here)
I know that everyone and their dog have been raving about this gem for the past couple of years but it is seriously that good. It maximises my lashes effortlessly in two coats and the spike-y wand hugs even the little hard-to-get corner lashes, which I love. Pair They’re Real with a nice eyelash curler and it will hold your curl for hours and hours. No more pointing down the floor lashes then? Yes please. It also elongates and defines the hairs beautifully and the rich jet black color is the perfect finishing touch. The formula is definitely a favorite too: No clumps? Check. No smudging? Check. No flakes? Check. Bye-bye panda eye! LOVE.
