Default Dear Krissy...I need mascara help!

Dearest Krissy,

I'm a cash strapped girl who needs a new tube of mascara! Any recommendations that are easy on the wallet?!

YES!!

I always check the weekly ads for Rite-Aid, CVS, Target and Walgreens to find great deals on cosmetics. Sometimes you can get buy 1 get one 50% off.

Mascara is the one beauty product that I'm always exploring.

These are some of my favs:

Loreal Voluminous


Maybelline Volum' Express


CoverGirl Lash Blast


What type of definition are you looking for??? I usually love mascaras that give volume and length.

My lashes are fairly typical, I think I prefer length over volume. Right now though, I'm running out of this one



I think I bought it only because it was on sale for like $5. lol. But I've used the Lash Blast ones, both the orange and the purple ones.

There's just so many choices I don't know what to pick!!

I'm sure glad that your forum exists so that I can ask you

Thanks hun!!

^^^that mascara is one of my favs, it's the second one I posted, they just changed the writing on the bottle.

The Maybelline XXL mascara is really good for length.

Have you seen that Mascara guide at Sephora? Well I usually gets tips from that guide and compare brushes department stores vs drug stores. It's usually the same thing. All you are really paying for at department stores is the name.

Like Dior Show & Grow Luscious by Revlon are very similar

Givenchy Phenomen'Eyes for $30


or Loreal Telescopic


^^Both mascaras give you the same definition; I'll buy me the Telescopic, save me some $$$

Yeah I've seen the guide, but it's easy to get distracted there. Especially when the Sephora ppl are always bugging when you don't need them, and once you do they're all gone! lol.

So from what I take so far, you like all the different brands right? If you could only pick ONE mascara to take with you (on a deserted island of course :P) which would you take and why?

That's a very difficult question. Only because with mascaras I haven't found "the one" I can tell you which one lip gloss I'll take with me on a deserted island? LOL

But yeah I like all different brands. I have a lot of MAC for my make-up kit because I get a discount.

I like this one:



I think it's less than $10 and it's great for lengthening!! I believe it's from Maybeline. They may have come out with a newer version (same pink tube and neon green cap) and it's awesome!!

You know, I don't think I've ever used that one. I've heard it's great but I've never actually bought it.

Oh! Krissy have you used the new falsies mascara? I've been wondering how good that one actually is?

I think this is like the mother of drug store mascaras!! It's one of those that you can't ever go wrong with. It was actually the first mascara I ever owned, I would "borrow" it all the time from my mom.

I agree with Nina, it's awesome

I STILL have yet to use the Falsies mascara That's going to be the next one I buy, I've been wanting to buy it for awhile now!!!

I agree. I used it straight for a month and while it's good, it definitely doesn't live up to the falsies name. I'm still happy with it

Falsies is really good. Been using it 3 months or so now. I'd recommend it. The only thing is at times it can get a lil too thick. I like the Flared version is a bit better.

I just got a free mascara in the mail from L'oreal. The Voluminous False Lashes. It applies really thick. It does give a lot of volume but i was hoping for some lenghtening as well. Right now i noticed some flakes I found it a took some extra eye-makeup remover to totally wash off last night.

Colossal and L'Oreal Voluminous Original are good ones.
The drugstore mascara i did like for lengthening was Maybelline XXL Pro Extensions. Really good stuff. Really did the job. Comes w/a primer. Didnt realize mine was waterproof but it came off easily.
