Mascara is my jam! Lol! I love to have beautiful eyelashes.
While I do have longish lashes, they are super straight and droopy. They remind me of Snuffleupagus’ eyelashes from Sesame Street. I have to curl them or they stick straight down. They cannot handle regular mascara, I have to use waterproof mascara if I have any prayer of keeping a curl.
I am so jealous of all you girls that never have to use an eyelash curler! My sister has naturally dark curled lashes, so not fair!
All that being said, I am super particular about mascaras! I expect A LOT from my mascara. I want a beautiful natural yet volumized lengthening not clumpy look with no flaking and an all day hold. That isn’t too much to ask for is it?!
I have gone through a lot of trial and error with mascaras. Unfortunately, it took me a while to figure out that I needed to be wearing a waterproof mascara. I have a whole graveyard of mascaras that did not work for me! After doing some research and trying to get good deals and using coupons, I have finally found my all time favorite waterproof mascara.
I love the Maybelline VOLUM’ EXPRESS® THE COLOSSAL WATERPROOF MASCARA IN GLAM BLACK. It gives me a a beautiful natural yet volumized lengthening not clumpy look with no flaking and an all day hold. That is exactly what I am looking for 😉
