Mascara is one of the, if not THE, most important beauty product in a girl's everyday routine.
The difference one swipe of mascara can make is astounding.
You can go from a half-dead zombie to a classic beauty in matter of seconds.
But with hundreds of different brands, wands, and formulas, it can be hard to find your lash-mate in heaven (see what I did there?).
No need to scour the beauty aisles any long because here are
"The Best" five mascaras ever.
Benefit BADgal Lash - $19 (you can get a mini version for $10)
BADgal Lash is a cult classic mascara with its XXL wand and furry bristles that will make your lashes look incredibly soft, feathery, and flirty. The formula is also top notch. It will hold your curl all day and keep your lashes looking full and long.
If you are looking for: soft and full lashes
Cover Girl Clump Crusher - $8.99
Cover Girl's Lash Blast has been a hit for many years, but it has been quickly moved to the side of makeup drawers for this brand new line. The Clump Crusher, one of my all time favorites, gives length and separates easier than any mascara I have tried. It also is the perfect mascara to layer over others, even throughout the day. The tiny bristles really get into the root to crush those clumps.
If you are looking for: long and defined lashes
Benefit They're Real - $23 (you can get a mini version for $10)
This was my very first "high end" mascara I ever purchased and I don't regret it. Like the Clump Crusher it has rubber bristles that really get into the roots. But unlike the Clump Crusher, the bristles are long and the tip of the wand has a unique spiky ball(?) that helps you get those lashes near the corner of your eyes.
If you are looking for: long, defined, and full lashes
Rimmel Sexy Curves - $6.47
Rimmel Sexy Curves has a very unique wand with a double hourglass shape. It may look a little funny but the added curves keep your curl and enhance it. It also helps to fan out your lashes for the wide eye look.
If you are looking for: curly lashes
Clinque Bottom Lash - $10
Now I know this mascara is only for the bottom lashes but I just had to include it, so just hear me out. Don't you feel like the bottom lashes get neglected? Big, thick wands with huge bristles smudge easily and always seem to poke you in the eye no matter how hard you try. This Clinique Bottom Lash mascara has become a bestseller with it's small precise wand that accentuates even the smallest of lashes AND leaves no smudges or flaking! Seriously you have to give it a try, and for only ten dollars? You don't really have a choice not to.
If you are looking for: long and smudge and flake proof
