Lash Blast or Bust?

Posted: April 19, 2012 by jerkmag in VAULT -- archives

Some ladies go to extremes to make their lashes lustful.  From fake lashes to waterproof mascara there about 50 or more products in CVS dedicated to lengthening those lashes.

It’s hard to know what works best, but I usually go for whatever grabs my eye first.  How do you know what mascara is clump and smudge free?  What is the freaking difference between blackest black and black?  Is color-tinted mascara in or out?  I’ll tell you.  After some research, here are the top mascara’s and why they’re worth switching too.

1. Maybelline Great Lash Mascara- The mother of all mascaras.  This classic brush and no clump formula has been around since the 70’s.  And for a good reason: It works.  If you’re looking for mascara that will get the job done without fuss then this is perfect for you.

2. Diorshow Mascara- Even though this is in the pricey range, it’s the one mascara that all celebrity makeup artists swear by.  The brush is extra large and grabs every lash.  The silica powder formula clings to every lash giving it a smooth finish.  The perfect brush and formula is a match made in heaven.

3. Lancome Definicils High Definition Mascara- This is the top selling mascara in America—one is sold every 3 minutes!  The grooved bristles grab your lashes and apply the formula from root to tip.  According to the Lancome’s website, select polymers (whatever that means…) lengthen lashes to their fullest potential.

4. CoverGirl LashBlast Mascara- This I swear by.  I have it in 3 different colors plus the water-proof formula.  It’s impossible to miss when you’re scanning the makeup isle—which is probably why I own it in the first place.  The flexible bristles are different from other mascaras because they are spaced on the brush.  This pushes your lashes to mascara making sure they’re perfectly coated.
