None, I do not like to wear it. Whenever I have it makes my lashes way too long (almost look drag queen-ish) to the point that I have to wipe some of it off. I do not need lashes that long since my lashes are long enough without it.

No other mascara holds curl like Lancome's L'extreme my short Asian lashes a day-appropriate almost-falsh look.

I wasn't too pleased with the new Chanel... it clumped far too easily. I'd say Covergirl for the price, and Dior for the luxury.

MAYBELLINE XXL mascara by far

Guerlain Le 2 de Guerlain Mascara is by far my favorite mascara that I've ever used. I love that it has two different brushes so you can get all your lashes. It never flakes and stays perfect all day long.

Cover Girl VolumeExact! I first tried the LashExact and loved it, but got fuller lashes with the VolumeExact.

Almay 3-in-1 Waterproof Mascara in Black. The wand has two different sized bristles--one for length, the other for curling and volume. Did I mention it nourishing your eyelashes giving you the healthiest lashes ever? CoverGirl doesn't do that. I've been using Almay since I had an allergic reaction to Maybelline AND Retin-A-Micro within two years leaving my lashes sparse (very very sparse. They still are re-growing) and weak.

Lancome Fatale by far, it makes my lashes look fake. But being broke forces me to use Lash blast daily.

yeah makeup in NZ is quite pricey, but the exchange rate is partly the reason

L'Oreal Double Extend Beauty Tube! It makes you look like you're wearing fake lashes. My all time favorite is the classic Maybelline Great Lash in Blackest Black. Skygirl84 , it costs that much for Maybelline mascara in New Zealand?!! $20?!! :jawdrop: That's as much as the higher end brands here in the US! I swear, at my local drugstore, Maybelline mascara cost no more than $8.

As far as drugstore mascara goes, I am VERY loyal to Great Lash Royal Blue mascara...I've been wearing blue mascara for years and years and this is my go-to brand. For drugstore mascara brands, I love Clinique Long Pretty Lashes.

CoverGirl LashBlast. I will never use anything else!

All the high end brands listed are far to expensive in New Zealand to even consider. $80 for mascara is too much. I love my Maybelline XXL Extensions and it's only $20.

CG Exact Eyelights in Black Gold is what I'm using now.

covergirl definitely. since you have to throw out your mascara more often than your other makeup i cant rationalize spending more than ten bucks. if i do, it would have to be on clinque.
