Here’s a quick round up of some of the most popular mascara products. Tips to remember - curl your lashes first to maximize results and use waterproof mascara as needed only. It’s a wonderful thing to have waterproof mascara obviously, but it can also be difficult to take off at the end of the day - especially for busy Moms!
CoverGirl NatureLuxe Water Resistant Mousse Mascara
It’s natural and it’s a mousse. I’ve tested this one out myself and it is very natural looking but gives great volume where there is hardly any lashes. The only downside appears to be the drying time which I noticed and read in other reviews. I just made sure to do some “fallout” clean up under my eyes about 15 minutes after applying and before I went out for the day.
CoverGirl LashBlast Volume Blasting Mascara
Big bold volume comes easily with this patent-pending brush and ultra volumizing formula. Easy to apply. Lengthening and volumizing. Bonus: Hardly any clumping!
Clinique Bottom Lash Mascara
Use this one just as suggested. A tiny brush to help reach the hard to cover bottom lashes.
Sephora Collection Advance Lash Booster
This one is actually a both a regular and treatment mascara. It adds volume instantly but will continue to help lashes look fuller and longer in 4 weeks.
Benefit They’re Real! Mascara
Lifts, volumizes, and lengthens. A dome shaped applicator. Editors of Sephora are obsessed with this one and everyone’s talking about it. I can’t wait to try this out. Looks so good people have a hard time believing your lashes are real supposedly!
Remember to take it all off at the end of the day - my favorite eye makeup remover is Lancôme Bi-Facil Double Action Eye Makeup Remover. This product contains oil so definitely helps getting the very tough to remove bits off which is important for eye health as I’ve had my run in with pink eye infections and dry eyes since becoming a Mama.
