Guest Post: Mascara Me Fabulous!

17 Jun

Looking for a great mascara is like looking for the perfect guy:

so many to choose from, all saying they are going to do this and that for you, having you feeling fabulous…UNTIL it starts to flake on you!

Ah! Read below and discover the journey Lorena has taken to find thee mascara that’s right for her. We’ve ALL been there:

“This year I have been in search of the perfect many things:

men, eye shadow, eye liner and…MASCARA!

Let me tell you about just a few mascaras I have tried: Maybelline Falsies, Define a Lash, as well as their OG Pink and Green tube. Some of these made my lashes fall out or they dried too fast. Others did nothing they claimed to do! My lashes didn’t look like I had”falsies” on and no single lash was defined. I even tried mascaras because of the spokespeople (Drew Barrymore, I could have sworn my lashes were going to turn out exactly like yours…). Another one bites the
dust. Mascara after mascara, I always go back to Maybelline’s Colossal Volume Express mascara in Glam Black:

Maybe she’s born with it….maybe it’s ________

For me, Colossal Volume Express does what it says: 9x the volume! Colossal lashes in just one coat (or 2-3 depending on
occasion) and made with collagen. It may be the mega brush or the collagen formula; I don’t know…maybe it’s the combination of the two but it plumps my lashes just the way I like them – VOLUMINOUS. I buy mine at Target usually between $5-6. The only down fall to this mascara is that it dries quickly. I find myself buying a tube every month and half or so. I know when I need to buy a new tube when mid day I see flakes on my cheeks (not cute, not cute at all). Besides that, this is the one product that you’ll always find in my make up caboodle.”
