4 Mascaras That Totally Rock

Yeah, I know. 4 is such a random number but you know what? Mascaras just haven’t really been impressing me lately. Some have been good but I haven’t come across any that REALLY rock. And so instead of reviewing one this week, we’ll just check out some of the few that I’ve absolutely loved.

#1 LORAC’s Multiplex 3D Lashes mascara

One of the reasons why I REALLY love this mascara is because of the packaging. Crazy, I know. The mascara’s performance is pretty good for one that is without parabens and all of those yucky synthetic ingredients. But come on, let’s face it. It’s the packaging and wand that really had me lovin’ this mascara.

Mascara Monday: Maybelline Hello Kitty Volum’ Express Cat eyes mascara

I thought long and hard about reviewing mascara. Because I love y’all, I didn’t want you to be all upset at me for reviewing a mascara that MOST of you will not be able to find. This mascara is (or was…not sure if they are still selling it or not) exclusive to Asia. And then I thought about it. There have been several mascaras that I’ve reviewed that have been exclusive to the U.S. Which, I’m sure, left my International sisters fuming somethin’ serious.

Plus this mascara is just TOO cute to not be added to the Mascara Bin.

But even with her cuteness, was this mascara a winner?

Mascara Monday: Maybelline Lash Discovery mascara

I’m not trying to be funny (well who knows, maybe I am. :) ) but when I first discovered Lash Discovery mascara, I’ve been having mad dreams about it. That darn mascara came out of nowhere. Or maybe I just never noticed it. The latter is bound to happen considering Maybelline has quite a few mascaras. But from what I understand, Lash Discovery is one of the oldie but goodie mascaras from Mayb. But I’ve never really heard any reviews about it. Is it the best kept secret or kept quiet for a reason?

Don’t judge me for the following photos. I seem to have misplaced my camera (oh trust me…I’m crying inside) and so I had to snap shots using the Android phone. Womp womp.

Mascara News: Maybelline’s retro and Hello Kitty mascaras

Soooo, instead of doing  a mascara review EVERY Monday, I’ve been thinking talking about all of the happ’ns in the Mascara World. You know, deals, sales, upcoming mascaras, mascara ads, mascaras commercials from the 70’s and all other randomness about the one product that women spend millions of dollars on annually.  And yes, I capitalized Mascara World like it exists. I reside there. You laughin’ at me? :)

I took a stroll in Target a few days ago and saw some kids that I THOUGHT were being pulled from the shelves.
