Hi All and Happy Friday!
If I were told that I had to get rid of all of my makeup and was only allowed to keep one item, I would hands down choose mascara over everything else! I love how mascara opens up my eyes and makes me look more awake. When it comes to drugstore mascara, L’Oreal is my favorite brand, and I use 2 of their mascaras together to create my favorite drugstore lash look. The mascaras that I use are the Voluminous Million Lashes Mascara and the Voluminous Butterfly Sculpt Mascara – I use both of these in the color Blackest Black and both are in the non-waterproof formulas.
(L’Oreal Voluminous Million Lashes in Blackest Black – I use this to get volume and length.)
(L’Oreal Voluminous Butterfly Sculpt in Blackest Black – I use this to separate the lashes and to darken the base closest to my lash line. This one gives the appearance that I’ve lined my upper water line, which I normally don’t do because tight lining tends to irritate my contacts.)
So here are the before pictures…
To get the look that I like, I apply one coat of the Voluminous Million Lashes followed by one coat of the Voluminous Butterfly Sculpt. I don’t use a lash primer or anything like that to prep, I just give my lashes a quick little curl so that they have a bit of lift to them. And here are the after pictures…
When I use this combo, I tend to get asked if I’m wearing false lashes, and people are usually surprised when I say no! It’s crazy what a difference mascara makes in my overall appearance! These mascaras don’t flake, they don’t run onto my under-eye area, and the curl holds ALL day as neither of the formulas weigh my lashes down. I know it may be excessive to use 2 different mascaras on a regular basis, but I just love the end result of using both of these products together.
What is your favorite drugstore mascara?!
I hope you have a great weekend!
