So, I went back and tried most of the recs you guys recommended: Marc Jacobs, L’Oréal lash paradise, L’Oréal voluminous million lashes excess, some Lancôme stuff, the cils booster, etc. Like Highlander, there can be only one.
The final decision, the one Mascara to rule them was....
L’Oréal Voluminious Million Lashes Excess! This stuff is eye-popping, mind-blowing, mascara on steroids. It reminds me a bit of covergirl lashblast, except bigger, better, and way less irritating on the eyes.
Does it transfer a little by midday? Yes, but only a bit and it wipes away easily with your finger. Trust me, the volume and length this Mascara gives you is so, so worth it. I can wear Mascara by itself and still look like I made an effort in the morning. Seriously, go out and buy this immediately.
The risk? $7 of your hard earned money. The benefit? Literally transforming your face.
