Three Mascaras We’re Loving Right Now

By  |  2 Comments

We’re always on the hunt for new mascaras that will make our eyes pop and give us luxe lashes. And while there are many fabulous mascara on the market, we’ve found these three that are super hot right now.

Chanel
Sublime De Chanel 10

This is my new everyday mascara of choice. It’s waterproof and gives my lashes length and a nice curl without crumbling.

When I removed brush to use it for the first time, I thought it had dried up as it doesn’t have the usual “coated” look most mascara’s do. In fact, I can see every bristle clearly on the brush.

However, once I started applying to my lashes, it coated each lash with a super shiny texture and gave my lashes a nice curl while extending them outwards. It didn’t do too much for volume at first, but after applying three layers, the volume was amped up and there was virtually no fall out.

I love the brush of this mascara with its tiny, flexible teeth. It has a patent “stretch bi-injection” brush that offers dual action in a single stroke and covers lashes one by one. It’s also got 4 mini-combs that help to separate each lash.

This mascara lasts all day!

Yves Rocher

Volume Mascara – Black

The consistency of this mascara is more creamy than gooey and it does take some getting used to. The consistency gives you smooth lashes that are clump free. It also stays put and doesn’t flake off, but you do need to ensure you don’t over-do the application as it takes a fair amount of time to dry.

I love it for day or night time.

Dr Hauschka
Volume Mascara – Aubergine

Another brand I’m fairly new to is the Dr Hauschka range and yes, they do include a full range of makeup, which like their skin-care “respects the body’s natural rhythms”.

Coloured mascaras are a big trend this summer and this shade of purpely-brown looks great if you’ve got green eyes like me, and will even look fab with blue, brown or hazel eyes.

This formula contains a combination of Beeswax, rose and candelilla waxes with silk powder to plump and protect lashes.

While it didn’t give my lashes an extreme volume effect, which is what I do like my volume mascaras to do, it did help to give them a bit more definition. I have very short, sparse lashes, but if you have slightly thicker lashes, then this formula is definitely for you!

The thing I did like about this mascara is how it felt barely there. A lot of volume mascaras I use tend to leave my lashes very wet and I’ve got to be careful not to blink too hard (or it ends up all over my face). This one dried much quicker.

The other benefit is that it contains Neem leaf extracts which help to strengthen the lashes. So, who knows, I might get my longer thicker lashes after all.
