Finding the perfect mascara seems to be every girls lifetime dream. It’s definitely something I’ve held myself busy with for a long time. Throughout the years I have tried and tested a ton of mascara’s, maybe even a hundred. So therefore I do consider myself a mascara-professional. Just kidding, I’m not much of a professional at all. However, I do have some experience with them and therefore it seemed like a great idea to me to share my findings with you. So, if you’re on the hunt for the best mascara in your life, make sure you continue reading this post!
1. Chanel Dimensions De Chanel – €35
My number one favourite mascara definitely is the Chanel Dimensions De Chanel Mascara. My best friend gave this to me for Christmas and I couldn’t love her more for doing that. At first I had no idea what i was in for and I most certainly didn’t expect to love it as much as I do, but lord oh lord this mascara is incredible.
What I love about this mascara is that it literally does everything you could want a mascara to do. It lenghtens your lashes, it makes them look very pretty and full, it separates them really nicely and it stays in place all day. I just love the volume and drama it adds to the lashes without being overboard.
Of course this might sound a bit too good to be true, but for real guys, this is literally the best mascara I have ever tried and I highly, highly recommend giving it a try if you’re on the hunt for the best mascara in your life!
2. Lancome Grandiose – €34,50
My next favourite mascara is the Lancome Grandiose Mascara. I don’t really remember how I discovered it back in the day, but I know that this is one of the best mascara’s I have tried so far. It’s definitely a mascara I go back to if I don’t know what to use anymore and that makes it amazing. It really is a staple in my collection.
What I love so much about the Lancome Grandiose Mascara is that it makes my lashes look really nice and full, it adds tons of volume, without making my lashes stick together and without making it look over the top. I also love how you can build it up to look a little more over the top if you want it to be, but it won’t if you don’t want it to be.
Another great aspect about this mascara is the fact that it does not budge. It stays in place all day long, even without it being waterproof, and that’s a sign of a great mascara. I absolutely love this and I will definitely keep repurchasing it every single time I run out of it!
3. Benefit They’re Real – €27,50
Then we have my old love, the Benefit They’re Real Mascara. I have to admit that it has been a while since I last used this mascara because I have been so busy trying out a ton of new mascara’s that I just haven’t gotten around to repurchasing this one, but it is definitely one of my top favourite mascara’s. It’s just a mascara with a great wand and a phenomenal formula.
The wand is amazing because it seriously does get every lash, which helps to create a very perfect and pretty look. It also separates the lashes in a really pretty way. The formula on the other hand is amazing because it adds volume and length and it’s buildable. But what’s even better than all of those great things, is the fact that it also is very longlasting!
Overall I just think that this mascara creates an absolutely stunning look on the lashes, which I absolutely love. It makes them look long, separated and voluminous all at the same time.
4. Diorshow Iconic Waterproof – €36
Next up is the Diorshow Iconic Waterproof Mascara. This mascara wasn’t one I was blown away with from the start, but I grew to love it. It basically has every aspect a great mascara has to has to become great in my opinion. It has the spikey wand which I think it great for separation and volume, it has a nice and black formula to get that intense black lash look and the formula isn’t too wet but also not too dry, for maximum comfort.
Because of the waterproof aspect of the mascara it stays in place very well, even when it’s raining outside or when you’re in a very sweaty and humid environment. This makes it a great mascara for days when you know it’s going to be warm or when you’re going to the gym for example.
I also love how well this mascara holds the curl of my lashes. I know that there’s a version of this mascara that does even more for the curl, but this one also does a great job at that, while doing some other amazing things. Yup, this definitely is a favourite of mine and I love using it every single day!
5. MAC Pro Beyond Twisted Lash – €24
My last favourite mascara is a bit of a weird one. It’s the MAC Pro Beyond Twisted Lash Mascara. I once got this in a set with some brow product and an eyeliner and I remember thinking this was a very strange product. The wand it blendable and made out of a very strange material and the wand is very thin. Because of that I didn’t really expect I would actually like this mascara. However, this mascara beat all of my expectations.
Because it’s very thin you can work very precisely with it. This is really nice if you are messy like me and you always struggle with not getting your mascara everywhere when you’re using a bigger wand. It’s also a great mascara to separate the lashes with and add length and curl. What I especially love using it for is as a base for another mascara. In those cases I use this to get my lashes to look nice and long and separated and I put something else on top for even more volume.
That’s it for today’s post. I hope this post was helpful to you in any way, or maybe just fun to read, and be sure to let me know which five mascara’s are your top favourites!
