A while ago I had this brainstorm to come up with mascara graveyeard series. Because, if there is one product I use up frequently and furiously, it is mascara! I accumulated a whole load and I have just been procrastinating on writing this post up! So much so that I added another four to this stash, so keep posted for a Mascara Graveyard Part 2.
*Just a note that I have no idea which of these are still available for purchase. AND most of these were finished mid-way though 2016. So my recall on them is totally based on my memories. Fingers crossed 😛
- essence I heart extreme volume
I am not a fan of coned mascara wands. This mascara being one of the reasons why. I don’t know if it is my technique but I always get mascara on my lid. The colour however is a super deep black and it does add the volume it promises. I just tended to stay away from it because of the wand being annoying.
- essence I heart extreme crazy volume
WAY better than the previous! This long thin wand is what my mascara dreams are made of. I find it so darn easy to apply onto top and bottom lashes. This tube and the above are identical apart from the colours. I think some people who don’t love the black tube’s wand might think the pink is a waterproof version or something. But do yourself a favour and grab it!
- L’Oreal Volume Million Lashes So Couture
Probably my most loved from this entire graveyard. I absolutely adore this mascara to this day. Again, it has a more thin wand which gives you more precision. This wand however is not very long yet it still gives great volume and length. I repurchased this mascara twice more if I am not mistaken!
- Rimmel Scandal Eyes Show Off
I reaaally do not remember how I felt about this mascara! Now I am feeling a bit dof by even featuring it but I feel like any finished product deserves a mention. I can only imagine that I loved it as it has the kind of wand that I enjoy. The ‘half hourglass’ tip allows you to easily target your bottom and end lashes without getting mascara anywhere else. Agh, two years ago I thought I was just so cool with my hot pink tube of Rimmel mascara!
- essence get big lashes volume boost waterproof
Okay this one was finished months ago so my memory is a bit foggy. I just remember struggling like heck to get it off at the end of a day. Granted, it is waterproof. But there are so many easily removable waterproof mascaras these days that it had me avoiding it.
- Maybelline XXL Pro Curl
And then finally this little double ended bad boy. Looking at it now I can’t imagine I would love a mascara with wands this short and curled! They are SO damn short and need to be held so close to your face. It is definitely a design I would stay away from these days. I do remember doing a little test ages ago wearing one eye with the primer and one without. I found that the primed side did work better, so that sorts the gimmick side out.
And there you have it. Short and sweet mini review on six mascaras.
