We Tested Your Favorite Mascara!
maybelline and dior
When we asked you what your favorite mascara was, five kinds seemed to top them all. DiorShow and Maybelline Great Lash ranked as the two most popular, followed by L’Oreal’s Voluminous, Lancome’s Definicils and Benefit’s BADgal lash. Here’s what we thought about your picks:
DiorShow is perfect for lengthening short lashes and giving otherwise stumpy lashes a feathery look, but longer lashes tended to get a spider effect and look a little unnatural. Buy DiorShow, $23, eluxury.com
Maybelline Great Lash goes on very think and easily runs. With small lashes it opened up the eye and added lots of volume, but was too heavy for long thick lashes. Buy Great Lash, on sale $4, drugstore.com
L’Oreal’s Voluminous is a great every day mascara. It doesn’t smudge, defines individual lashes and is very light. Buy L’Oreal’s Voluminous, $8, cvs.com
Lancome’s Definicils worked best on long and full lashes because it is light and seperates best. Short thin lashes required a lot of liquid to get any definition. Buy Lancome’s Definicils, $23, macys.com
BADgal lash was great for a dramatic effect making eyelashes darker and more defined. The less used, the better since it did tend to clump. Buy BADgal lash, $19, sephora.com
