My Favorite Mascara – Save vs. Splurge

March 15, 2017

If there is one beauty product I can’t live without, it’s mascara. In fact, most days when I’m just around the house or running errands, mascara is the only makeup I apply. I used to always wear eyeliner on my waterline also, but the smearing kept irritating me. So now for the past few weeks all I use is my mascara! It definitely took some getting used to, but I’m really loving how much more natural my eyes look.


My first favorite is this CoverGirl Lash Blast in Very Black. I have been using this mascara for more than 5 years, and it is my absolute favorite. Not only is it extremely affordable (under $10 depending on where you buy it), it makes my lashes look so long and full. I’ve even gotten asked multiple times if I use an eyelash curler or wear fake lashes. Nope! Granted, my natural lashes are pretty long, but this mascara makes them look fabulous. Plus, I never have any issues with smearing. It lasts all day!


My second favorite I’ve only just recently discovered, but LOVE. It’s the Bobbi Brown Eye Opening Mascara. I received it as a sample in the mall back in December and was super impressed. I’ve tried a handful of other mascaras throughout the years, but nothing compared to my CoverGirl and left me disappointed. Until this little beauty came into my life. It adds so much volume to my lashes and makes my eyes pop, without having to apply a ton. I’ve been saving this mascara for special occasions so that I can make it last as long as possible (full size is around $30). I do notice that the sample size wand makes applying a little difficult since the wand is really short and stumpy. Next time, I’d probably go for the full size.

If you’ve been on the hunt for a new mascara, give one or both of these a shot. Promise you won’t be disappointed!

Hope you guys are adjusting well after the time change!
