3 of My Favourite Mascaras

3 of My Favourite MascarasThere are very few beauty items I would say I actually need – sure there are a lot I like or want – but need, well, that’s a strong word. I’d say I need moisturiser, lip balm and possibly dry shampoo, but there is one product that, without a doubt, I need more than most; mascara. Without it I look a little strange and on a day to day basis, even if I’m not wearing foundation, I always pop on a coat or two to make me feel human. As I go through so much of the stuff, I love to try out new formulas as I go and recently there has been three gorgeous formulas that have been giving me full, big lashes, all day, everyday.

tarte Lights, Camera, Lashes! Volumizing Mascara reviewThe first mascara I’ve been loving is a repurchase, and one I’ve talked about before (HERE and HERE if you want to check it out) on Made From Beauty; the tarte Lights, Camera, Lashes! Volumizing Mascara. I was first introduced to this mascara around my birthday, as my mum bought me a huge tarte makeup collection to try, including a full sized Lights, Camera, Lashes! Volumizing Mascara. I posted about it, wore if everyday and loved it for a good couple of months, before I moved on to another formula, and to tell you the truth I missed this mascara so much. It gives effortlessly big lashes in just a couple of coats, lasts all day without any smudges and is very very black. The wand on this mascara is a pretty standard brush with makes it super quick to apply and easy to reach the inner/outter corners of the eye. I do wish this product could last a little bit longer however, as I found that it really started to dry out pretty quickly after the one month mark – otherwise, one of the best formulas I’ve ever tried. And right now you can WIN a full sized tube of this mascara on my Twitter; so head on over to my profile @madefrombeauty_ to enter!

Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara ReviewAnd talking about awesome formulas, I’ve finally tried a mascara formula that beauty lovers the world over have been raving about for years; the Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara. Whilst I’m not keen on the name (a makeup product better than sex? Really?) I am infatuated with the formula. This gorgeously packaged number delivers huge lashes with masses of volume in such an intense black. At first I was a little worried that I had made a bad decision picking this product up, because on first application it was a it too slick and took a long time for me to build up volume, but I found that after using it for about a week this had totally changed and I was in love. Now with three coats, this mascara gives me probably the best lashes of all the mascaras I own.

DSC_0755L'Oréal Mega Volume Miss Hippie Mascara ReviewI have been trying out the new L’Oréal Mega Volume Miss Hippie Mascara for a few weeks now and have to say it’s made it’s way to the top of my everyday lash products in no time at all! I love this mascara because it is both volumising and lengthening. It gives dramatic lashes in no time, and gives that sort of fuzzy look to the lashes I love (does anyone know what I mean by that?) I do find that this formula can slightly smudge on my bottom lashes throughout the day, but for a budget option I don’t mind compromising a little on that.

So what are your mascara favourites? Do you have several on the go at once like me? Or do you have a firm favourite you always stick by? Let me know in the comments below!

      Let me know if you try it out!

      Thank you for commenting x

  • I love the Tarte mascara but I find I can only use it when my lashes are at their best. I’ve been loving the Maybelline Colossal mascara recently and the L’Oreal False Lash Sculpt mascara x

    • Oh really?! I wonder why that is about the tarte one?

      I haven’t tried either of the others, but I’m going to add them to my ‘if they are on offer and I have a makeup itch to scratch’ list haha!

  • I’ve been unsure about trying the Too Faced mascara but it does sound amazing – my current one is just about to run out, actually, so I might have to buy it! The Tarte mascara sounds lovely too :) xx

  • I haven’t tried any on this list but the rimmel lash accelerator is my absolute must have. I always have a tube in my backup tray or makeup bag. This good review of the Too Faced Better Than Sex might just be enough to get me to go and buy it, read so many good things about it since it was released!

    • I just can’t seem to get on with Rimmel mascaras, not sure why, but everyone I’ve tried has irritated my eyes :( Haha! Sorry to your bank balance! Thank you for commenting x

  • I have been using a lot of random samples recently but really like smash box mascara.

    • Mascara samples are always amazing because they last forever! Oh, I’ve never tried a Smashbox mascara!

      Thank you for commenting! x

  • Tarte Lights Camera Lashes is one of my all time favourite mascaras, I hardly ever re-purchase but I’m currently on my second tube :)
