Short Mascara Reviews

While on vacation I only brought 1 mascara out of convenience, Loreal Voluminous. Everyday my eyes itched. So much I was constantly tearing before lunch time. I really had no idea what it was, the weather? pollen? my new make up remover? My bf was the one who pointed at my mascara.
I had worn this everyday for 2 months without issues but that's when I realized I had never ever used it without some kind of base. Damn I was allergic.

On the trip I ran to Sephora and literally just grabbed the Diorshow Extase Mascara. It's Dior's newest mascara, I bought it quickly based on the recommendation of a friend of mine and my bf waiting for me outside =( I had to hurry!

This was not a hit for me. First coat was ok...length was not bad, but I like more than 1 coat. 2nd coat is where the problem started it was glooping on me. It was clumpy, like really clumpy~! It looked like a mess on me. Even my bf said "Whoa...what's up with your clumpy eyelashes?" omg! that is not something I want to hear...I know some girls do like that kind of effect so if that's your preference this is the mascara for you.
It was just was not my preference look.

I wore this for 1 day and went back to Sephora for an exchange.

This time I tried the Bare Mineral Flawless Definition Mascara, my first BM product

I chose this because I had read on my flight that this was Rachel Bilson's new obsession mascara. ( I love Rachel B ) so grabbed this in exchange. It reminds me a lot of lash stiletto by Maybelline and maybe the new Cover Girl lash length? (yellow tube) I have not tried it yet but the brush looks similar.
Really lengthens, really clean look, and no clumps what so ever. Super natural but not much in terms of volume. I prefer this though for everyday. I now wear this as a base for length and still Loreal for the volume.
I have the non water proof

Summery
Dior Extase: Better volume, easily clumps, lengths moderately well, fiber wand
BM Flawless: Lengthens, no volume, very clean/natural, plastic wand

  4. I returned the Diorshow Extase Mascara too, it was crap and didn't work for me. The original DiorShow is the best, the one in the navy blue and silver packaging. Diorshow and the Buxom mascara are my all time fav's.

  5. Sorry to hear that the Loreal Voluminous gave you an allergic reaction. Nothing is worse than that! :( I own the mascara and I do notice a strong scent with it. The BE mascara does seem very similar to Maybelline Stiletto and the Lash Blast from Cover Girl.

    I have yet to try the BE mascara yet. Looks promising :D
