Top 5 Mascaras you need to know and try and a few that you don’t.
I like experimenting with beauty products and share my experiments. I try new mascara approximately every 2-3 month and here is my list of the best mascaras I’ve tried so far (with a bonus of do-not-like mascaras at the end of the post).
1. Missha Spider Lash / Korea/
Before and after :
This is my number 1 mascara currently, it has replaced for me the ‘Clinic’ mascara with a similar brush, which they do not produce anymore. Missha mascara gives you that perfect separate lashes look. It does not flake and the best thing about it – it is super easy to wash away, just using warm water or any of your favourite makeup remover. It is the first snaping mascara I have discovered.
Price is 15-20$ depending on the distributor and promotion.
2. Dolly wink /Japan/
This one has a really fabulous volume effect. It is easy to remove too – just use some warm water or any of your make up removers. It does not flake and it gives extremely good volume and ‘doll lashes’ effect with 2-3 layers applied. I prefer using it for the night out when you wear a little bit more makeup than usual.
3. Cat’s wink mascara by Tony Moly
Another super cute Korean beauty mascara which costs only $5. Moreover, surprisingly the quality is quite good. It gives a natural and pretty look.
4. L’Oreal Lash Telescopic
This mascara has a rubber applicator, it gives you a good volume and length. It feels like you have a bit too much mascara on lashes, and it is a bit of an issue to wash it away. I can say it is better for the night when you feel like you need more makeup and ‘thick and heavy’ eyelashes look. I kind of like this volume effect, however, I do not think I will re-buy it after I finish it.
5. Dior Iconic.
I definitely love this Mascara, however, it’s is a bit more pricey and I still like my Missha more, regardless the price. This Dior Mascara is quite difficult to remove from your eyes and skin. Again, I prefer my number 1. It looks beautiful, but it usually just sits in make up drawer and I do not use it often.
My Mascara do-NOT like list :
I am currently unhappy with last Clinique’s mascara, Maybelline waterproof colossal and Clarins volume. The last one looks amazing but lives panda eye circles on your skin, which is really difficult to wash off.
Bobby brown length one started to flake after less than a month and unfortunately and I’ve got very disappointed. I am also not so excited about Mac mascaras, they’ve got lots of gorgeous products, but they really need to work on improving their mascaras.
Where can you buy Korean and Japanese mascara in Australia? You can easily order from eBay or amazon or strawberry net (more skincare) if there is no distributor in your city.
Have you ever tried any of those? Which is your favourite mascara so far? Let me know in comments.
