Hey! It's a whole bunch of mascara reviews in one! Cool!
Click the jump! You know you want to...
First up.. Clinique High Impact Mascara- One of my favorites!
I love this. It gives me a dramatic look for night, or even for daytime. It can be natural looking,too. Just don't apply as many coats. Also, the packaging is super cute, a bonus! :) I bought this for about $13.00 at my local CCO (Cosmetics Company Outlet for those who aren't in the know. They sell a lot of more expensive brands like MAC, Bobbi Brown, and Clinique for a lower price, and they sell a lot of limited edition products.), but you can find it at Sephora as well.
Bare Escentuals Buxom Lash
I bought this at Sephora in a little baby size (Right) and it came with a baby sized "Buxom Lips" Lip Gloss in "Eva". I really liked the gloss. Now, onto the mascara. It has this amazing shaped brush, which is in an hourglass shape. It gives me really long, and defined lashes. I like to use it for daytime, since it creates a really great sort of natural look. Again, this is the mini version, but you can buy the full sized. I will definitely re-purchase this one!
*Does this tube make me look...fat?*

Ah, the famous Lashblast. I think that I knew about this mascara when it came out, but I never really was into Covergirl until the Lasblast hype. When I finally got it, I joined all of the raving fans. Although the fat plastic tube and the bright orange packaging is a bit gaudy, I have to say I have grown to like it. But that's the packaging. Well, you know that I like it when I'm getting nit-picky. Okay. Pictures!
Oh..and by the way..Did you notice how much better the pictures are? New camera! :)
Okay, I LOVE Lashblast. It gives me amazing volume, and a little bit of length too...but mainly volume. I would probably wear this mascara for a very dramatic look.
Now, on some of the blogs I have read, people complain about...the brush being too big? What?! Now, come on, be serious. You are really gonna complain about that? For me, it's the bigger, the better! I think that the brush is fine for me.
Clinique High Definition Mascara
Okay. This one is cool. Probably why I bought it. I has a regular mascara brush on one side, and a comb on the other! I had a really bad experience with a comb-like mascara before, so I decided that I would try it one more time just to see if I could prove myself wrong. I just love that brush. *sigh*
How cool is that?!
This mascara is ok. I like it. It isn't my absolute favorite, but I still use it once in a while. It gives me length, not that much volume, though. And you should definitely curl your eyelashes before you use it. Overall, though, I think that Clinique has some very good mascaras. I would like to try the "Lash Doubling" one!
Fresh Magic Wand Mini Mascara Duo
Ah, my favorite little duo from Sephora.
They both came in a little box, and I had to get them! They were so cute! According to Sephora.com...
Magic Wands Mini Mascara Duo
What it is:
A mascara layering kit featuring Supernova Mascara and Firebird Mascara.
What it does:
Fresh Magic Wands Mini-Mascara Duo delivers the ultimate high-voltage lashes. Supernova creates a super-black base, with a volumizing lift, and Firebird has a feathery effect. The combination is stunning.
What is is formulated WITHOUT:
- Synthetic Fragrances
- Synthetic Dyes
What else you need to know:
Lashes are scientifically proven to have 34% more eye-opening curve after applying Supernova and to be 44% fuller and more voluminous after applying Firebird. For your best lashes, apply two coats of Supernova followed by one coat of Firebird.
Something that I have been wondering is, when you get mini trial-sized mascaras, is the brush the same size as the real one? Because in the pictures of the full sized mascara, it looks bigger, but I can't be sure. Oh well!
On to the mascara...
I really like this duo. My only complaint would be that 'Supernova' seems to not have staying power. It flakes off a little bit after a while. Maybe there is a waterproof version?
Anyways, I really liked both of these mascaras,but I actually did like Fresh Supernova a little better. It gave me more volume, whereas the Fresh 'Feathers' one gave a more natural look, and I like dramatic lashes! Overall, I would repurchase this set.
Maybelline Colossal Volum-Express.
I am not a Maybelline makeup fan. I never have been, nor do I claim to be. Just a little FYI there for ya.
Another semi-famous one. I finally purchased this after some meticulous shopping online, and looking at reviews, the whole deal. So I have to say, I was not impressed with this mascara. Everyone was raving so much about how vouminous it made their lashes, and how it was the best mascara, but you know what? I didn't love it. I mean sure, it's not terrible, but definitely not my first choice mascara.Another thing that I didn't like about it is that is has this artificial rose scent to it...not so great smelling, but I have never had a scented mascara before, so they get an A for that. It really didn't do that much for me. And it flaked. So, you know, it just didn't really work out for me, but maybe it did for you? Comment and tell me!
The brush is nice, though, I will give you that. And the packaging is pretty eye-catching/cute.
You can probably tell that I like mini-mascaras, can't you?
Since I already did a sort-of review on this, I will save myself some time and give you the link to it.
Okay you just need to scroll down until you see a picture of it. :)
Benefit BADgal Lash by Benefit
My review of it on TotalBeauty.com.
--This was the first mascara I bought from Sephora. I had read up on all of the reviews, and saved up my money. When I first used it , it was okay. It didn't do anything life changing. It adds a bit of volume, but not a lot of length. Overall, it was average. The thing that REALLY got to me though, was how much it flaked off! By the end of the day, most of the mascara was all over my face and not on my lashes. Especially if you wear it on your lower lashes! In about and hour, it had me lookin' like a raccoon!
Yeah. So needless to say, I was less than happy with this mascara. It was a total waste of money for me.:( It really stinks because I wanted this to work so badly..
Neutrogena Healthy Lengths Mascara
Someone's review from TotalBeauty.com..
It really lengthens my lashes without looking overdone. It lasts the whole day and is easy to apply. I can create a fresh long look or a thicker nighttime glamorous look. The price is reasonable, and the weird thing is this mascara can last longer then a month although I use it everyday! It's a keeper and I highly recommend this!
I couldn't agree more. I really like this mascara, and I am eager to try Neutrogena Healthy Volume.
Okay. Phew. All done. That was an awful lot of mascara. When I get to it, more reviews! Comment! If you like what you read, tell your friends about this blog.
