The 9's Chiccessible Mascara Find a la Beychella
I don't know about you but mascara is one of the must-haves that I cannot leave the house without...little known fact about me: I'm naturally BLONDE. Which means my eyelashes are also blonde. Hello, good morning-- mascara. All day. Eryday. So I'm always on the lookout for the best mascara. Which, for me, means long lasting, non-clumping, and full coverage with the least amount of coats (preferably ONE because who has time for all that three coats BS). I also want something that comes off easy enough that I don't lose any of my precious little lashes, which is why I ditched both waterproof formulas and the ever-popular lash extensions. Extensions seriously f---ed up my lashes and I tried every method. (Sidenote: If anyone can recommend a lash serum that doesn't sting and actually works- I'm all ears!) SO... when I heard about this $10 mascara from L'Oreal (on clearance here from WalMart) I had to run out and try it.
And let me tell you- I'm fairly impressed...
1. The brush is awesome and probably the most important factor. It's hour-glass shaped and gets the job done better than most.
2. It's $10 or less if you follow the link I posted ;)
3. It glides on smoothly. No problems with clumping.
4. It layers nicely (no tarantula eyes here).
5. It really does stay put for a good 8-12 hours.
You can read all about Beyonce's high performance makeup here.
Interestingly enough, her mascara also made the news after the 2018 Grammy's.
As a sidenote, I also love LASHBLAST Mascara from CoverGirl (the purple one) and my 'expensive' ($18) go-to mascara I actually discovered when I had falsies because this mascara is specially formulated for eyelash extensions BUT I still wear it regularly and LOVE it sans extensions. It's oil-free, cruelty-free, vegan, American-made mascara that's ultra smooth (almost silicone like) and super long-lasting PLUS it features two different wands for coating every lash for both length and volume.
As a matter of fact, I still reach for it first. You can get yours HERE.
