Crazy Jess | #TopFive | Mascaras 👁 

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! 😜

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 month’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 it’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 “what kind of contacts are you wearing, because your eyes are sooo green they can’t be natural”.

Yes Susan they are real.  God gave them to me and no I’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 I’d choose lol 😂)

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, I’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 😉

1) IT Cosmetics Superhero Elastic Stretch Volumizing Mascara


💰 Price: $24.00

🛍 Where to buy: Ulta

 

2) Benefit They’re Real Mascara


💰 Price: $25.00

🛍 Where to buy: Ulta

 

3) L’Oréal Lash Paradise


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

🛍 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


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

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


💰 Price: $26.00

🛍 Where to buy: Sephora
So why these five?   Well in short they are all amazing and let me tell you I’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 eyes” 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 I’m wearing (I don’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

Ulta 21 Days of Beauty 

I absolutely love when Ulta does the 21 Days of Beauty Sale. It’s the best time to get super amazing deals on high end makeup brands that we all love and that they never let you use a coupon for. I will be posting the deals as I see them on here to spread the word. 


It’s while supplies last each day so you have to either get there early (in store) or get online early before everything is sold out.  It’s happened to me countless times during previous sales events that I waited too long and missed out on something I really wanted. 

Today’s is super exciting because I adore the Urban Decay lip glosses and 50% off is amazing. Not only that, but 50% off on Murad facial cleanser!?!  Amazing. I love all theses after summer beauty sales!!!  

So my beauty peeps, run and stock up!  

Until next time,

XOXO Crazy Jess 😘
