Crazy Jess | #TopFive | Mascaras ๐Ÿ‘ย 

Well hello there.  If you are new here, welcome.  I hope you like, comment and subscribe.  If you aren’t new here, then welcome back and thank you for following me.  I know my blog lacks focus and content consistency but I’m working on it, I promise! ๐Ÿ˜œ

In fact, I’m working on it so much so that I decided that I’m finally going to start my #TopFive series I’ve been planning on starting for like ever at this point but #life and #motherhood got in the way of that.  Now is as good a time as any.   

So, what do I mean by “Top Five Series” you may be thinking.  Well, basically I decided I would start a series each month were I would share my top five of random items/products/things etc.

For this monthโ€™s installment of the #TopFiveSeries I decided to start with my #TopFiveMascaras of all time.

Why mascaras you might be thinking?   Good question.  I chose to start with that topic because itโ€™s one of the top questions I get from people regarding my makeup looks, even from strangers in public, holding a close second to the other frequent question I get which is โ€œwhat kind of contacts are you wearing, because your eyes are sooo green they canโ€™t be naturalโ€.

Yes Susan they are real.  God gave them to me and no Iโ€™m not lying to you.  (Sidenote: I legit had a lady in public argue with me and tell me I was lying that this is my natural eye color…because out of all the things to lie about regarding my appearance my eye color would be the one Iโ€™d choose lol ๐Ÿ˜‚)

So where was I?   Oh yeah, my top five mascaras.

These are legit my top five and I have all five on hand ALWAYS!   They range from high end to drug store brand and they are all worth the money.   I always get them in the color black or whatever the darkest color they have available is.   

In no particular order here we go…

By the way, Iโ€™m not going to write a thesis here on Mascara and highlight the pros and cons of each individually because that is just wayyy tooo much info. Just trust me if you want major volume you will like these ๐Ÿ˜‰

1) IT Cosmetics Superhero Elastic Stretch Volumizing Mascara


๐Ÿ’ฐ Price: $24.00

๐Ÿ› Where to buy: Ulta

 

2) Benefit Theyโ€™re Real Mascara


๐Ÿ’ฐ Price: $25.00

๐Ÿ› Where to buy: Ulta

 

3) Lโ€™Orรฉal Lash Paradise


๐Ÿ’ฐ Price: $9.99 (usually but you can get on sale & use coupons to get it even cheaper)

๐Ÿ› Where to buy: any drugstore, Wal-Mart or Target and also available at Ulta 

Note: this is a drug store dupe for the Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara and I quite honestly think this one is in fact BETTER than the Too Faced BTS and is obviously much more affordable.

 

4) Maybelline Lash Sensational


๐Ÿ’ฐ Price: $8.99 (usually but you can get on sale & use coupons to get it even cheaper)

๐Ÿ› Where to buy: any drugstore, Wal-Mart or Target and also available at Ulta
5) Marc Jacobs Velvet Noir


๐Ÿ’ฐ Price: $26.00

๐Ÿ› Where to buy: Sephora
So why these five?   Well in short they are all amazing and let me tell you Iโ€™ve tried ALL the mascaras.   Well maybe not all of them but darn near close and out of all the many mascaras I have purchased, these are the ones I consistently repurchase over and over again.

They work for me because they each give me dramatic volume, are buildable, don’t flake, aren’t too watery, and don’t give me “tarantula eyesโ€ either.  I can wear them each by themselves or I can wear a layer of one and finish with a top coat or two of another and it always looks good. 

I consistently get compliments on my mascara/eyelashes or people ask me what false eyelashes Iโ€™m wearing (I donโ€™t do false lashes FYI) and there is never any consistency in exactly what combination of these five I’m wearing on any given day when I get said compliments or questions so they all without fail work for me and for now are my must-have top five.  

What is your favorite mascara?   Have you tried any of these?  What did you think of them?   Comment below and let me know!

Until next time,

XOXO
