Mascara Make Over

Okay, so I need a new brand of mascara. I've been buying the cheapie Great Lash stuff for ages and it just isn't cutting it for me anymore. I have light colored eyelashes so without mascara I look like I don't have any at all. Not only that, just like the hair on my head, my eyelashes seem to be thinning as I get older!!

Why is it that as we age our skin gets thinner and our hair gets thinner, but out bodies do just the opposite? Doesn't seem quite fair does it?

I use to buy Clinique, but I rarely get to the department store to buy it, but maybe I'm going to have to.

Ultimately, I would love a natural, non-chemical mascara that stayed on, didn't clump and didn't cost $30 a tube, but at this point I think I would slap the chemicals on my lashes if I could find a good one that didn't make me look like I had hairy spider legs attached to my eye lids.

Just a nice soft natural look.....

Mascara wearers.....whatcha got for me?

This is most definitely my all-time favorite mascara:

And before this I had used the same one for like ten years and this one was so good I switched. I love it!

I am not at home right now and I can't remember what it is called...but I can describe what it looks like. I do know that it is Mabelline(sp?) or cover girl or one of those because I got it at Wal Mart. (I can't do the high dollar stuff either) It comes in this tube that is half white and half black. There is a wand on each end. You put the white stuff on first...let it dry then you put the mascara on top of that. It makes my lashes look really long! I have heavy eye lids and I need all the help I can get!

Check out MossCara by Aveda. Or MAC has a brand with fibers in it. I've tried both and was happy with each. Thanks for your comment on my blog. By the way, I have a coupon on my blog for Aveda. I posted it yesterday or the day before. Have a great weekend!

Nothing to offer here as I don't use mascara. But I could def use a makeover.

The kind Angela was talking about is Maybelline's Intense XXL Volume+length. I use that and it's really good. Another good one is LOreal's Volumenous mascara. I'm a fanatic about mascaras. I've tried almost all of them. One thing I do believe is, you don't have to spend a lot to get a good mascara. I've tried expensive ones that were awful.

I agree with Nancy - you do not need to spend a lot - I use (depending on which one is on sale) Maybelline, Cover Girl and Neutragena and like them all. I have very light colored lashes too and buy the brown/black rather than the black cause I think the black is too drastic.

Sorry... being the infrequent wearer of makeup that I am, I have no good mascara advice for you. :) It just runs when you raft anyway-- heh heh.

But... I did want to thank you for your comment and mentioning Eckhart Tolle-- been on my "to read" list for far too long now... hoping to remedy that in Sept! Glad to hear you enjoyed though. Good luck with the mascara! ;)

LOL - I thought of you today as I purchased mascara. Noticed in the Rite Aid weekly circular all Almay eye cosmetics were 30% off and I had a $1 coupon too!
