Let’s talk mascaras, shall we?
I’ve never been a makeup girl, seriously, I’m very lazy. My rule was that if I didn’t wear makeup then I didn’t need to wash my face at night… Well, this has worked for pretty much my entire life, but there was a moment when I decided that it would be a good a idea to wear some makeup. The thing is that I’ve always liked to buy it, but not to wear it. That has changed in the last couple of years, although I wear very little/light makeup. Now I feel naked if I don’t put something on. I know, first world problems.
One of my favorite makeup products is the mascara. I really think that it makes a big difference although it’s a pain to remove, and believe me, I’ve tried different makeup removers. I also try to avoid waterproof formulas because of the extra difficulty trying to remove them. I have to say that I have spent way too much time and money trying to find the perfect one, and I think I found it: YSL Babydoll. I believe it was released a couple of years ago and I’ve been using it for almost two years. I got to test it when I exchanged my points at Sephora and fell in love with it. It doesn’t clump, it doesn’t make my lashes heavy, and it makes my eyes look pretty natural. Again, I love natural looks on me.
There are other mascaras I’ve tried that I liked too, for example, they’re Real from Benefit. I got it on my birthday set at Sephora and really loved it, but when I removed it, it felt like I was removing a waterproof mascara and that was the part that pushed me away from it. Lancome Hypnose is another good one, but Babydoll is my favorite. I really like Covergirl LashBlast Mascara but it starts flaking after a couple of hours.
I know that YSL is not the cheapest one around, but I’ve spent so much money trying to find the perfect drugstore brand that this one is worth it to me. The first time I ran out of it I looked for a dupe online and I heard that L’Oreal Voluminous Million Lashes was the perfect substitute. Well, I went ahead to buy it and when I opened it I realized that it was waterproof. I went back to the drugstore to buy the non-waterproof formula, and yes, it was fine but I prefer the YSL one. In the end I decided that I better stick to what I know and like.
What’s your favorite mascara?
