I DID IT – I tested some MASCARAS and had a bit of help with testing them. I am not a daily mascara user and I had my issues with several other mascaras before so therefore I am the best judge 🙂 I found all of them for very very decent prices at the parfumcity online shop and I couldnt believe what awesome products they sell there, absolutely worth to visit. ok, lets have a look at different mascaras for different purposes.
whats on the menu today?
ASTOR big and beautiful boom killer volume mascara
oh wow – yes this mascara makes BIG and BEAUTIFUL lashes. I love the wand and the product stays put the whole day without irritating my eyes.. I hate it when mascaras flake and often the tiny parts end up in my eyes – so thats a BIG plus for that one and actually all the other ones I have tested. not one flaked! another nice thing is that you can either wear one coat for a rather casual look and then later on apply more coats for a more dramatic eyemakeup. 11.75 CHF (mascara 12ml, makeupremover)
BOURJOIS PARIS volume glamour mascara
this mascara promises VOLUME and GLAMOUR and I felt both, the wand separates the lashes and therefore applies more volume the glamour factor comes with the rest of the makeup and the compliments that one gets for her mascara! compared to the ASTOR mascara this one is a bit more decent and less dramatic. perfect for everyday business look. 10.75 CHF (mascara 12ml + kajal)
BOURJOIS PARIS volume 1 second mascara
volume in one second, well that was not true for me as it takes me a bit longer to apply mascara 🙂 but once I was done there was the volume. so far all of the mascaras have held their promises and thats a big PLUS. the 1 SECOND volume mascara has a medium sized wand and separates the lashes like the volume glamour mascara. I felt like this one is a bit more dramatic than the one mentioned before. but still after layering a couple of coats I had a very stunning eye look.
13.00 CHF (mascara 12ml)
LANCOME hypnose drama mascara
the queen among the mascaras and not only due to its prize. I can really see a difference between this high end product and the rather cheaper ones. so in the end you get what you pay. I know, it is not always the case, some cheaper products can do more than other more expensive ones but with the mascaras I gotta stick to what I said. you feel the difference in the consistency and how easy it can be removed. thats a huge bonus because our eyes area are very sensitive and rubbing the eyes with a cotton pad full of eye makeup remover irritates the skin. I got the DRAMA mascara in a set with eyemakeUp remover and I found that a great deal!
40.75 CHF (mascara + eyemakeup remover + eye cream)
