If you’d asked me in high school or early university what makeup product I could easily live without, I would have said mascara. Oh how times have changed!
I think I was just waiting for The One. Mascara that is, not my Prince Charming.I think I’ve found it in Catrice’s Glam & Doll mascara. It has overtaken all other mascaras in my estimation and I am in love. Therefore, this post will mainly be talking about this mascara along with 3 others – Benefit Roller Lash, No7 Stay Perfect Long-Length Volume and Covergirl’s The Super Sizer.
I will talk about them in the order they came into my life. If the mascara were men, this would be similar to Let’s Make a Date on Whose Line is it Anyway. I loved that show! Contestant number oooonnneee….
Benefit Roller Lash (CAD 31.00)
- one side has short comb-like bristles, other side longer normal bristles – for depositing product at the base and then sweeping through
- lengthens and volumizes, although the separation and definition is more evident than the lengthening due to my lashes already being quite long
- smudges slightly at the outer corners of my eyes thoughout the day
- does not flake
- easy to build up multiple coats, but more than 2 equals clumpiness
Covergirl The Super Sizer (CAD 5.97)
- one side has a curved comb bristles (wider spaced out than RL) and the other side has normal bristles
- excellent alternative but does not provide as much volume as RL, but more lengthening
Catrice Glam & Doll (EUR 3,99)
- probably my favourite HG mascara. I loved it from the very first application and my only regret is not buying several more tubes when in Europe
- It volumizes and lengthens and is as black as can be
- does not flake or smudge
- tubular mascara
- perfect for use on the lower lashline
- provides definition and length
- Pretty crap on my upper lashes as it did not give me my desired volume and thickness
