Scarlet on "Mascara"

by Scarlet @ YouLookFab Forum » Topic: Mascara

I have had great luck with Lancome mascaras. I have tried a few of them and all were fantastic. The latest I tried seems to be the "tube" kind of mascara that swells and falls off in water (link below). I think Blinc was the originator of that technology, but I never tried it, although I hear it is good.

Also maybe avoid moisturising in the eye area in the morning. That makes a big difference for me.

I have been on the search for the perfect mascara for the past few months. Last month, Nordstrom had a buy two get one free on any brand. I am picky about the wand because if it is too large I end up with mascara on my drooping eyelids. The SA and I found three, a Lacombe, a Clinique, and a Bobbi Brown. I find that if I use the Bobbi brown for the first coat and follow with the Lancome for the second, I get the best results. I sometimes I change out the Bobbi brown with the Clinique but think this combo might be better for cooler weather.

rabbit on "Mascara"

by rabbit @ YouLookFab Forum » Topic: Mascara

I need to try the tube mascaras.   I use benefit roller lash mascara, it's not waterproof, but doesn't seem to smudge or flake unless I forget and rub my eyes (which usually happens right before bed).   I had very fine/short lower lashes so I didn't try mascara on them until recently, when I discovered that the seemed to be growing a little more substantial when I used the benefit on them.  Now I line my inside lower lid with an off-white liner and I use mascara and a tiny bit of brown liner at my lower lash line.  It makes my eyes look a lot bigger, but doesn't work without the pale inner liner.

Suz on "Mascara"

by Suz @ YouLookFab Forum » Topic: Mascara

I adore the Lancome mascaras and they offer a great range -- but I developed an allergy to them.   I've always had sensitive skin but my lashes/ eyelids were pretty immune to that for decades. No more. 

I also tried (and really liked) some of the Maybelline products before I moved to Lancome -- but, yup, you guessed it. That's how I wound up at the Lancome counter. 

Now I am using Clinique Lash Power. http://www.sephora.com/lash-po.....la-P206900   

It sounds a lot like the one Viva recommends. It lasts through everything and does not smear or smudge but comes off easily with water -- and, bonus, I am not allergic to it. 

The downside is that it does not build volume like some others. My lashes are short and undistinguished and this really only colours them so they are not invisible, vs. "bumping" them up. However, non-smeary, non-irritated eyes are worth it to me. I figure if I ever really need to pull out the stops I could try fake lashes.

ClaraT on "Mascara"

by ClaraT @ YouLookFab Forum » Topic: Mascara

I have longish lashes and for two decades I thought the only solution to underage smudging was hourly wiping! I tried drugstore mascara, high end mascara--they all wore about the same (and I hate removing the waterproof stuff).

Then I figured out that for me, the key is not the mascara itself but rather applying a thin layer of powder right under my eyes.

I use Maybelline Soft and Full mascara (which is perfectly fine but frankly nothing special) and a swipe of NARS light reflecting powder (applied with a small soft brush; $$ but lasts forever) directly under my lower lashes. Voila! No more smears and easy removal with a gentle face soap.

Beth on "Mascara"

by Beth @ YouLookFab Forum » Topic: Mascara

I've also been on the search recently. I did not have any luck with:

  • Dior Iconic Overcurl (clumps on second coat and is spidery)
  • Maybelline Lash Sensational (little volume, ok length)
  • Diorshow (little volume, ok length, the rose scent irritates my eyes)
I've had better luck with:
  • Lancome Definicils
  • Cover Girl Lash Blast Volume
There are good reviews at makeupalley.com and beautypedia.com. Also, the Sweethome did a nice review of mascaras, including how they're made and what makes a good product:
http://thesweethome.com/reviews/best-mascara/

I've found that with age, mascara tends to migrate over the course of the day when this never used to be an issue. Tubing mascaras may be the next on the list to try!

Gigi on "Mascara"

by Gigi @ YouLookFab Forum » Topic: Mascara

Lots of great suggestions. Maybe you could also try an eyelash primer before applying the mascara. I want to say that when I use primer first, I don't get so much smudging. The primer really adheres well to the mascara. I have been using Jane Iredale last primer and the Jane Iredale Longest Lash mascara. I'm not sure how this primer works with other brands of mascara, however.

SandyG on "Mascara"

by SandyG @ YouLookFab Forum » Topic: Mascara

Any mascara formulation is going to vary depending on your eyelashes. I have long, fine ones that I curl before applying product, and too many of the mascaras are wet, heavy and drag down the fine lashes, leaving unintended spider-y results instead of a classic 'fanned out' lashes lining the eye.

(after decades of mascara 'research' and a 401K worth of expense) I settled on Diorshow the classic non-waterproof one. Estee Lauder had a teddy bear brush that I liked but the product practically dripped off my eyes. Dior's brush is less plush but the mascara is workable and stays in place for me. I dust my lashes ever-so-lightly with powder before applying to help the mascara dry faster, which keeps the curl.

My dream would be to choose my preferred brush -- and then combine with my preferred mascara. Which would never smudge or migrate!

BrieN on "Mascara"

by BrieN @ YouLookFab Forum » Topic: Mascara

Scarlet: I read your descriptions of lashes and mascara with wonder. Honestly, I just started wearing mascara a few months ago. Before that, I had the odd mascara I'd dig out every 4-5 months. I've never given my eyelashes much thought and even less thought about what type of look I'm after.  The best I can say is that I like it when I curl my eyelashes with an eyelash curler and I like black mascara especially because the ends of my lashes are light. Now that I think about it though,  I would guess that my lashes are at least regular length but maybe sparse compared to others. So that would mean a mascara that "fills in" my lashes somehow?

My mascara always smudges as I have allergies and my eyes tend to water a lot.  I just started using Estee Lauder's Double Wear Zero-Smudge Lengthening Mascara and LOVE it.  It doesn't give quite the volume of other mascaras I've tried, but it doesn't smudge or flake and is really easy to remove. The downside is that it is expensive.

by viva @ YouLookFab Forum » Topic: Mascara

BrieN, I don't think all tube mascaras are alike. I tried Blink, which is sold at Sephora, and I had to toss it because it got very wet and clumpy. If anything, Kevyn Aucoin's is on the lighter, drier side, but I like a more natural mascara. 

I simply use more liner if I want a more dolled-up look because I have gotten so I can't stand raccoon eyes. I think it's worse as you get older and your eyes get more crinkly. For me, the cleaner, the better.

K. Period. on "Mascara"

by K. Period. @ YouLookFab Forum » Topic: Mascara

BrieN, that would be hilarious, to do a post about my mascara wardrobe.  I think mascara is one of the ultimate "your mileage may vary" beauty items, though.  Lash shape and density for a starter makes it really hard.  I have short short short lashes, very straight with no curl and not a lot of density.  I loooooove thick, dense lash looks, but sometimes go for other styles.  I might wear something that gives me thinner individually defined lashes if I'm going for a fresh faced minimal makeup look.  

With tubing mascaras, I generally find that the water part is essential, although micellar water is sufficient.  Regular makeup remover loosens the tubing mascara, but it really doesn't release entirely until you splash it with water, at least in my experience.  (BTW, I'm wearing Trish Mcevoy's tubing mascara today because this post made me think of it!)      

What has been your favorite mascara for lash look so far?  Ignore the smudging issue.  If you could choose your favorite and make it unsmudgeable, which one would it be?  Also, what type of lashes do you have and what type of lashes do you want?

The gimmick mascara: It slices! It dices! It curls your eyelashes!

by noreply@blogger.com (Maia) @ Below Freezing Beauty

Is it just me, or does every mascara claim to be a specialist these days? They don't just make your lashes black; they lift or separate, curl or lengthen, thicken, strengthen, multiply, falsify... I'm surprised Ron Popeil hasn't jumped on this.

That said, some of these gimmicks really work. And some of them are just – well, just gimmicks. In this video I provide a quick look at four I've tried, with mixed results.

The good

I've blogged before about two of the specialized mascaras I really like. Urban Decay's Supercurl Curling Mascara made my "best of 2011 beauty" list, and Maybelline Volum' Express The Falsies has made the blog a few times, including a post of its very own back in 2010. In the video, I talk about how I use each one; they both have unique properties and require some special handling.

Also, no matter how many times I type it out, "Volum' Express" never stops seeming like a silly name. I mean, what's with the apostrophe? What is that conspicuously missing E really supposed to convey?

The bad

Two gimmicky mascaras that disappoint: Physician's Formula Shimmer Strips Custom Eye Enhancing Mascara Duo in Glam Brown Eyes has a brush that is just as oversized and unwieldy as its name, and the bonus bronze highlighting mascara doesn't do a thing for me. (Besides which, just because I have brown eyes doesn't mean bronze is a good color for me. Brown-eyed girls can have cool-toned skin, you know.) And L'Oréal Telescopic Explosion Carbon Black Mascara, with its strange, ball-shaped wand, just wasn't happening for me. 

More detail in the video, including a rambling story about how I used to wear blue mascara when I was in elementary school and a lot of strange hand gestures as I try to explain how I use various mascara wands. Enjoy!
