Oh Mascara, how do I love thee?
I absolutely adore mascaras. If the world was ending and I have one last minute to spend, I'll be curling my lashes and slathering on some mascara... Hehe.. kidding aside, If your pressed for time to put on makeup, just skip all eye makeup (shadows,liner) and just put on 2 coats of mascara and your face will instantly brighten up! (assuming you have your foundation, blush and lipcolor on!) =D
My mascara love affair started when I got to try my mom's Great Lash mascara from Maybelline and ever since I've trusted the brand's mascaras. But they also hit or miss. I'll review some mascaras for you to see what's my take on different mascaras out there. Remember these are just my personal opinions and what may not work for me may work for you! =D
I'll be reviewing...
If you have seen this one recently in the mall, you might notice that they already changed the packaging. (This is the old one.) This would have to be my favorite everyday mascara! I like that the formula is not waterproof so I feel that my lashes could breathe. I also like that it really is 100% smudge-proof! Just don't rub your eyes. (Btw, you really shouldn't!) I also like that the formula has "fibers" for lash lengthening! The trouble with fiber mascaras is they tend to have fall-outs during long wear, but this one has nada! =D

I'm not even sure if they had another formula besides waterproof for this mascara but this one I bought because it was on sale! (Yay for cheap-o me!) Nowadays, I can't seem to find this anymore and I have a feeling that they replaced this with the new MAGNUM mascara. The formula for this is not bad, but it's also not great just so-so. But when they say it's for volume, It really does deliver. It may sometimes clump on your lashes so be careful to gradually add coats of mascara than slathering on a thick layer as it will weigh your lashes down. As for the curling aspect of this one, I say it curls my lashes a bit but not enough to skip those eyelash curlers.
