As a makeup enthusiast I have managed to develop a healthy taste for mascaras. Over the years, I have had my share of hits and misses which has made me extremely particular about mascara. Since I am constantly on the computer, doing errands and chores I have specific wants and needs depending on what I have planned for the day. For example, if I feel that I’m going to have a long day, I tend to wear waterproof mascara or layer a volumizing mascara formula on my lashes. Sometimes I combine certain formulas to create the look I want. Here are my thoughts on the above mascaras:
First up, we have Rimmel London “Super Curler 24hr”
This brand claims that its formula will hold the curl for 24hours. I purchased it to do just that. I used an eyelash curler then immediately applied the mascara. Now, I wasn’t and never was a fan of the curved wand, but I decided to try it anyway. I had high hopes for this product but after a full 12 hours the formula flaked off my lashes throughout the day. To give the mascara another go, I used the mascara as the first layer and topped it with a mascara I knew worked. Sadly, it still flaked off throughout the day and therefore did not hold the curl. I believe this product works best with a light application and a shorter wear time. I found this in Shoppers Drug Mart and Walmart.
Next up is Covergirl “The Super Sizer”
As I’ve said before, “Size Matters” lol, but in this case, I was surprised by the smaller and thinner wand this mascara had. It claims to result in the appearance of longer lashes with more volume. I chose to try this mascara because I wanted to be able to get as close to the root of my lashes as I could to give a fuller lash look. I was and still am thoroughly impressed with this mascara. Not only did I get to my lash roots, but I was able to apply as many layers of the product as I wanted without it looking clumpy, sticky, nor flakey. I now use this mascara alone, with other mascara formulas and when I wear false lashes. It has become my go-to mascara over the past 4 weeks. I bought this in Walmart .
And finally, L’Oreal “Voluminous Miss Manga Rock”
The claims on the packaging suggested giving lashes a doll-like look, so of course, that’s why I purchased it. I’ve been using the L’Oreal Voluminous original formula for many years which was even more of a selling feature. I was also intrigued by the wand, the shape is perfect for getting into the corners of your eyes. Unfortunately, the wand and formula combination resulted in clumpy lashes. It was a bit of a challenge the first time I tried it, it was also a messy experience. After a couple more attempts I learned how to work with this mascara and wand to create the doll-like look. I use this mascara when I don’t feel like wear false lashes. I bought this in Walmart as well.
The Battle of the Mascaras’ results are in and the winner is Covergirl’s “The Super Sizer“. I love everything about this mascara and it’s the only mascara I’d repurchase out of the three competitors.
If any of you have tried these, please comment and let me know what you thought of them.
