My Top 6 Favorite Mascaras

This should really be a hard post for me considering I’ve reviewed well over 150 mascaras but it’s not. Most of the mascaras that I review are decent but only a handful are amazing. And I know that sounds pretty lame but let’s face it, many brands make all of these claims about how amazing their mascaras are when in reality…they’re just okay. But these babies here? Oh man. If I didn’t have to regularly review mascaras, I’d just stick to these. And because I could write even MORE about these beloved mascaras, I’ll just give you 3 of my favorite details about them.

Ultraflesh Panthera

  • Coolest packaging EVER!
  • It’s a higher-end and preservative-free mascara. You rarely see that.
  • Has a wonderful and light but longwear formula.
  • Super easy to use. Even for the insanely clumsy folx like me.
  • Removal is a breeze.
  • Long lasting and eye popping. This mascara REALLY opens up the eyes.
  • Flawless fiber mascara with thickening and lengthening properties
  • An “interesting” wand that doesn’t affect application but it’s still cool to look at.
  • Like most fiber mascara, it removes with ease.

Nuance Salma Hayek Ultra-Defining

  • The perfect wand. I mean, perfect!
  • Gentle formula.
  • Awesome awesome lengthening power.

Rimmel Lash Accelerator

  • Thick formula but still allows you to lengthen beautifully.
  • Long lasting!
  • It’s memorable because it was my 100th mascara review.

Maybelline Great Lash Lots of Lashes

  • Incredible heart shaped wand.
  • 10x more effective than the original Great Lash mascara
  • Gives volumized lashes with only 1 coat.


Have you tried any of these mascaras? What is your absolute favorite mascara eeeeever?

  • Great review! I love mix of high and lower end brands. Over 150 mascaras? Wow!

  • Most likely will purchase the Rimmel Lash Accelerator next :) Thanks B

    I absolutely LOVE the Clinique Bottom Lash Mascara…def a fave!

  • I started using Fairy Drops a few weeks ago and LOVE it! I think it is my favorite of all-time thus far!

  • I also love Bottom Lash, but sadly Fairydrops just didn’t work for me – it was a total flake city! I’ll add the others to my to-try list though :)

  • I’ve only used the Clinique Bottom Lash mascara out of these, but I did get it because of your review, and it is really nice and easy to use. Only problem is it makes my wispy lashes look crazy fake, so people keep asking if I’m wearing falsies!
