The Mascara Quest – Volume One

For the last year or so, I have been on a quest to find the perfect mascara. So far, I have only been somewhat successful.

Let’s take a look at a few I have tried recently and my favorite thus far. Newest to me is from Covergirl and it’s called The Super Sizer. 

The Super Sizer claims to give you “400% more corner-to-corner volume for full, fanned out lashes” according to their website.

It has one of those plastic brushes that I don’t particularly care for. The formula was just okay. I thought it made my lashes look very spidery. I wasn’t a fan. I picked it up at Target.

Next up, I tried Pixi by Petra’s Large Lash Mascara in bold black. It has a fiber brush that I prefer, so was happy to test this one out.

I think the formula was a wetter formula that took a bit to dry on my lashes. The brush itself is very large so I found it somewhat difficult to apply to my lashes without touching the skin on the top of my eyelid or below my eye with the wand. I also got this at Target.

I received the Mally Beauty Volumizing Mascara in July free with an order from Birchbox. I talked about it a bit here. I think this is one of my favorite mascaras I have tried in the last few month. The formula is fantastic and just the perfect wetness. The brush is great at coating all of my lashes. Sadly, this tube is getting quite dried out.

The brush is a fiber brush and isn’t too small or too large. It isn’t a waterproof mascara, but I didn’t experience any smudging whatsoever. I think I am going to pick up another tube of this very soon.

I am still on a quest for my perfect mascara. My lashes are pretty long so I look for a volumizing formula in a mascara instead of lengthening. I also usually like waterproof versions as my eyes are fairly watery and I need all the help I can get keeping my eye makeup actually on my face.

What are your favorite mascaras? Do you have any recommendations?
