TRIALLED & TESTED; TOP 6 MASCARA


indusrty_eyes_top_5_mascaras_maxmade-com-au

If eyes are the window to the soul, then lashes are the lush, Venetian curtains. Just as a change of frame can freshen up a painting, so too a change in mascara can take you from doe-eyed baby to dangerous woman at the flick of a wand.
Here are my favourite formulations that work your personage as much as your peepers.

Charlotte Tilbury Legendary Lash Mascara

Why bother with falsies when this hero will give you an instant full-on Hollywood False Lash Effect? Red carpet lashes have never been easier for the ball-gown glamour gal, where you can layer the coats as often as you top up the champagne for longer, thicker and more luscious lashes.

And because I know you love your luxury, this Ultra Black formula glides on like velvet with no clumping, flaking or smudging, while the unique elastic creamy formula that keeps lashes hydrated. Only the best for for favourite rich bitch!

Giorgio Armani Eyes to Kill Mascara

Ooh, you temptress, you shameless vamp… have I got the weapon of choice for you: take this sexy mascara and pair with either a smokey or painted-leather shiny eye liner in an ultra black formula – and point ‘em in your victim’s direction.

Even you haven’t been blessed with ultra long flutters (but seduction rules your soul), this mascara’s goal is to lengthen, thicken and multiply your lash strands for extra ammunition. The long bushy bristles atop its wand and the ultra black, build-able formula in its rod (sorry) make it the ultimate potion for medium-length and fine ashes with big goals.

Benefit Cosmetics Roller Lash Curling & Lifting Mascara

For the roller girl too busy catching waves and showing up boys at the skate ring, celebrate your girly edge with the holy trifecta of mascaras. This formula is so light it feels and looks more like a tint – but it still lengthens and curls so its great for fuss-free, fine lashes.

The brush head is curved to hug lashes to maximise curl, while the rubber bristles help to disturb the formula evenly stopping any clogging so to avoid lashes (and your day) from being weighed down.

It Cosmetics Super Hero Elastic Stretch Volume Mascara

When you’re busy, your days are short – but now at least your lashes can be longer. For the woman who is juggling it all, this smart mascara is the ultimate encore. This formula’s false lash effect has a super-stretching effect on lashes, while the super light formula still renders a rich black colour (saving you unnecessary application).

The brush head is bound in a circular pattern so that when you twist the bristles through your lashes, the colour extends sparingly without weighing you down. Scratch ‘find the perfect mascara’ off your to-do list…

You like to save your best brush strokes for the canvas – not your mascara. While it’s fun to play with textures while you paint, you would have a harder time making this mascara clump if you tried!
This neat formula is great for short or fine lashes, with a silk formula resplendent of an oil painting. The fluffy bristle head makes application feel pure art. And being cost effective high quality mascara, there’s no need to eat baked beans for a week.

Lancome Grandiose Mascara

What is the best mascara for a perfectionist? One where you can get up-close and leave no spot untouched. For the OCD in all of us (and I fall in that category), this mascara has a uniquely curved wand that works with your face shape so you can get up close and personal with even the shortest of lashes.

If you pull out your lashes from stress (JK), the rich black formula will give you decadence and thickness, while a light weight tint formula ensures you remain in total control.

Which one is your favourite mascara?
