Is Your Mascara Always Coming Off Underneath Your Eyes? These 7 Products Are For You
I am not a makeup maven by any means; my everyday look consists of concealer, a little lip and cheek color, and mascara. Those are my nonnegotiables, and I feel like I've tried every mascara imaginable. The problem I always seem to have is that by the end of the day, my black mascara is all underneath my eyes, and I resemble a raccoon. It's not a cute look, and after some research, I've discovered that it's because I have oily eyelids. If you're like me, don't fret, because I've done the hard work for you, and found seven great mascaras that won't actually slide off. Especially in this summer heat, mascara that stays on is a hot commodity. Keep on reading to shop my selections!
The Statement Mascara: Benefit Cosmetics Badgal Bang! Volumizing Mascara
I've tried more mascaras than I can count, and this Benefit Cosmetics Badgal Bang! Volumizing Mascara ($26) remains my holy grail. When I wear it, people ask if I have eyelash extensions on. It's both volumizing and lengthening, which I like, and it doesn't clump or flake off.
Your Lashes but Better: Ilia Limitless Lash Lengthening Mascara
If you're looking for that "your lashes but better" look, the Ilia Limitless Lash Lengthening Mascara ($28) is for you. It stays all day but is super lightweight, and you look that much more awake. I love it for every day.
The Sleeper Hit: Buxom Lash Mascara
A friend told me about this Buxom Lash Mascara ($22), and after trying it, I'm surprised it doesn't get more hype. It's a great formula, makes your lashes look voluminous and beautiful, and doesn't come off during the day. It's my little secret no longer.
Lengthening and Dramatic: Hourglass Unlocked Instant Extensions Lengthening Mascara
This Hourglass Unlocked Instant Extensions Lengthening Mascara ($29) is the newest product in my arsenal, and it's so good that my mom asked me to buy her one too. This mascara has a tubing effect, so the product clings to your lashes and stays all day. Plus, it's very lengthening and gives a fluttery effect.
The Drugstore Winner: CoverGirl LashBlast The Super Sizer Mascara
The CoverGirl LashBlast The Super Sizer Mascara ($7) is, hands down, my favorite drugstore mascara. It's the only one that doesn't wear off by the end of the day, and it gives gorgeous lashes for under $8. Sign me up.
The Classic: Kevyn Aucoin The Volume Mascara
Whenever I ask a makeup artist about their favorite mascaras that won't come off, they talk about the Kevyn Aucoin The Volume Mascara ($28). It's another tubing formula, so the product stays put for a look that's dramatic and sexy without feeling over the top. Did I mention it doesn't budge?
