From the responses to question nine in yesterday’s Monday poll, it’s clear that as a collective group we are mascara crazy!
Did you think you were alone with your mascara obsession? Guess what? You are not!
As much as I love mascara, I have to say, since I stopped using eyelash serum (it was this time last year), mascara has had to work so much harder. Pooh! When I used eyelash serum consistently, my lashes were long, thick, luscious, slightly curled and rarely fell out. I could use any mascara and my lashes would look amazing. Now that I’m back to my original lashes, any mascara falls short.
I’m looking for a new one again!
In yesterday’s comments, Megan mentioned the new Tower 28 mascara, which I’ve wanted to try since I saw makeup artist Katie Jane Hughes use it on Instagram. I’ve yet to find a – “air quotes” – clean mascara that I liked, so if I pick it up at Sephora I’ll be sure to keep my receipt just in case.
What mascara are you using at the moment?
I’ve been bouncing back and forth between a few old MAC favorites all summer, and I’ve only recently started a new tube from a brand called Araceli. They’re a small, cruelty-free line from Southern California, and the packaging has a pretty butterfly on the side of the tube. It’s good for thickening and lengthening, but I could hold more curls, so it’s not the one that rules them all.
A tube of Araceli mascara costs $19, and by the way, when did mascara get so damn expensive?
