SEPHORA OUTRAGEOUS CURL DRAMATIC VOLUME AND CURVE MASCARA
I like the fact that this mascara brush separates eyelashes a lot better than many other options on the market.
I prefer a full thick coat, but clumping has always been a major problem.
This hairbrush-like tip separates and coats the lashes quite well.
While the manufacturer claims that it takes only one easy stroke for a full, luscious look, it took me two or three swipes to get full coverage on my lashes.
Available at all Sephora stores.
K-PALETTE 1 DAY LASH PERM LONG CURL MASCARA
If you're looking for a long-lasting mascara, this waterproof one will take you through the day, and even a good cry or two.
You'd think that means it's a struggle to remove. But surprisingly, this one comes off easily with make-up remover wipes.
It also leaves your lashes looking like you just curled them with an eyelash curler.
It's an effect that can be sustained with an ingredient in the mascara - acrylate polymer - which allows the lashes to maintain their flick.
Small bristles also separate the lashes well, making the application process easy too.
Available in all BHG stores.
YVES SAINT LAURENT MASCARA VOLUME EFFET FAUX CILS
Besides looking pretty in its gold metallic casing, this mascara works wonders for girls who love a dramatic look.
It gives you the look of false lashes without the hassle of gluing them on, and makes your eyes pop.
If I had to pick one weakness, it would have to be the excess mascara that settles on the wand when you first pull it out of the tube.
It's an easy problem to fix though - just swipe the wand on the sides of the bottle opening and you're good to go.
Available at all Yves Saint Laurent Beauty stores.
