All lashed out and nowhere to go

Mirror mirror on the wall, which mascara gives me the greatest lashes of all?!
(I'm sorry, I couldn't help myself! Ha ha)

I'm blessed to have inherited reasonably long lashes from my father but my eyes feel naked without a little mascara on them! I've tried brand after brand but have always come back to Maybelline Great Lash, that's about to change!!

Heres a few different brands I have in my drawer at the moment

From left to right
E.L.F. Clinique Lash Doubling Mascara, Maybelline- The Colossal Volume Express, Maybelline Great Lash in Clear and Blackest Black & blinc.

(This is what I have in my drawer but doesn't even begin to make a dent into how many different brands that I've tried! Ha ha)

The E.L.F mascara is on my list of worst products ever!! Ha ha. Really, it is thee worst mascara I have ever tried in my life! I only put it on one eye and couldn't take it off fast enough ha ha.

Clinique Lash Doubling Mascara (also a freebie when I bought a kit at Clinique) is a great mascara. I love the way it makes my lashes look but I don't love how it looks when it leaks off my lashes onto my skin, yuck.

Maybelline Colossal Mascara, you my friend win the "grossest smelling mascara" award! The smell is horrid, while the product isn't so bad itself, I can't stand the smell!

Maybelline Great Lash was the first mascara I had ever tried and the only one that I always seem to go back too. I remember my mother using it throughout my childhood so when she finally let me purchase makeup (only mascara and a blush, ha ha) it was the only choice in my head! I do think it's a good mascara, I love the natural look it give my lashes. For summer, it just doesn't hold up as well as I would like it too.

As for "blinc" read below :p

This months Birchbox may have not been my favorite but inside I found a new little treasure,
blinc mascara! Love love love this little guy!

Here's What It Claims To Do:

This game-changing mascara encases your lashes in a thin tube of water-resistant formula that won't smudge, smear, or run.

Does It Live Up To It's Claim?

In one word, yes!
Do you ever notice someone says a certain problem they have and you say "oh, really? I've never had that problem", that a week later you're experiencing the same problem(s) as them?!

My sister has always had an issue with her mascara leaking under her eyes, leaving her looking like a raccoon and I haven't ever met a cute raccoon...have you?! Ha ha. Now that the back story is out of the way, I've been having the same problem everyday for the past three months!!!

This tiny, compact mascara does exactly what it promises to do. It doesn't look clumpy, melt off my face in the hot weather or smear all over my face when I rub my eyes. It also leaves your lashes looking long and full, what more could a gal ask?!

Will I Repurchase?

Ugh, I guess this is the part where I have to list the one negative part of this mascara...the price! blinc mascara will run you $24.00 for 0.21 oz. I'm too "cheap" to spend $24.00 every two-three months. Ha ha.

Here's to hoping I'll get another sample of this, find a dupe or find a twenty dollar bill on the ground while walking into an Ulta? Ha ha!

If you lovely ladies know of any dupes, tips or are willing to share your favorite brands I would love to hear about them!

Thanks so much for reading, take care :)
