We asked some of our contributors the ultimate question: What’s your favorite mascara? We got all kinds of responses, maybe one of these brands will be the perfect fit for you!
I loved it for a long time because it doesn’t smudge or flake. But I am always looking for something that makes my baby translucent lashes pop. I’m kind of “over” this one, it’s just a safety net for me now. – Jessica
It depends! (Brenna)
It really varies what mascara I use. I am not a picky makeup girl and I really like trying new stuff, so I base my mascara decisions on what is on sale, what packaging is the cutest, the color of the mascara tube and if it has certain ingredients that I am allergic too. (The last reason obviously being the most important!) – Brenna
It’s amazing but a little messy to take off. I also use Younique fiber lashes. We have a love/hate relationship because while they are great, I don’t use the fibers every day and it took me about 5-7 times of applying them before I got the hang of it. (You can read Sara’s review of Urban Decay Mascara here.) – Sara
My new favorite mascara. I used Maybelline Great Lash for ages but needed a change. It goes on really well and I feel awesome when I wear it. – Anna Jane
Anything new! (Amanda)
Whatever I see that’s new. L’Oreal discontinued my favorite mascara years ago and I’ve never found a replacement. I’m always open to suggestions! -Amanda
Such a hot button topic for makeup artists. Ha. I love drug store mascaras! I love anything L’Oreal voluminous but my favorite right now is the L’Oreal Voluminous Butterfly! Always choose black mascara to make your eyes pop with minimal effort. – Annie
My lashes are decently long but Marc Jacobs Velvet Noir Major Volume Mascara finally gives me the volume I want! I can use a couple of coats for a more natural look or layer it on for more drama! – Jamie
Open to suggestions (Dara)
I have long eyelashes so I am always looking for one that makes my lashes darker but doesn’t get all over my face. Right now I am using Clinique’s Naturally Glossy, but I am open to suggestions. – Dara
