1st- Buxom, Sephora Price $22.00
Conclusion- Thick lashes but hours later tiny black flakes end up on my cheeks, not long lasting. Adios.
2nd-Dior Show Waterproof, Sephora, Price $24.50
Conclusion- Not a good lash separator, Clumps, Does not come off easily with makeup remover, so if you get a clump your stuck with it unless you pluck out offending clumped lashes.
3rd-Kat Von D High Frquency, Sephora, Price$18.00
Conclusion- Too thick, a few hours of wear before you get raccoon eyes.
4th- Clinique High Impact, Macys, $14.50
Conclusion- Great color, you have to reapply to keep a good effect, not waterproof
5th Maybelline Define a Lash, Rite Aid, $6.00
Conclusion- Not bold, good separator, does not wash off well, Have to reapply but that proves difficult due to the waterproof feature.
6th- Givenchy Phenomen'eyes effects, Sephora, Price $29.50
Conclusion- I had high hopes for this funky looking wand but every time I used it I was wiping off more than I put on with a q-tip. I don't qualify for the talent this takes. It is bold in color, but clumps, uneven, and leaves raccoon eyes after a couple hours.
7th and FINAL Cover Girl Lash Blast Waterprrof, Rite Aid, $7.79
Conclusion- My by far favorite. A great separator, thickener, bold color, lengthener, does not wear off, no reapplication needed, washes off with remover or shower
So after a few bad eye days a lot of money wasted but a wealth of knowledge gained with no thanks to the Sephora makeup consultant, whom I noticed never had on great mascara, I don't know why I followed her so blindly to new products to try. Now do I look like the commercials with the models with OBVIOUS falsies on with mascara...no but that's okay.
I have found my go to mascara and who would have thought, its right around the corner.
