It's been some time since I've written a post about beauty products, mainly because I'm not an impulse beauty buyer (like I can be with clothes!) I really plan out what products I'm going to buy after doing some research and maybe even test out some samples. So, with that being said, I'm really excited to share 3 new mascaras with you that I've been dying to try!
Some women have their "thing" when it comes to beauty products. Some are lip color fanatics, while others might be obsessed with eye shadow palettes. I can say that I truly love experimenting with different mascaras! There are some people who don't feel that there is any difference between mascaras that you find at a drugstore vs. a beauty or department store, however after using multiple different brands over the years I have noticed a difference with the wear and overall longevity of the tube life.
For the past couple years, I have gone back and forth between Le Volume de Chanel and Dior Blackout mascara. My preference between those two came down to how easily I was able to take them off with makeup remover at night. The Dior mascara didn't come off quite as easily, and at the end of the day I would notice black goop in my eyes that had formed, and it just didn't feel too great! So, when Nordstrom had their Mascara Madness event last month (where you buy 2 get 1 free!) it seemed like the perfect opportunity to expand my horizons and go for some new formulas.
Since I just got them in the mail a couple of days ago, I haven't had a chance to try them all. However, I have tried the Bobbi Brown 'Eye Opening Mascara' and so far I'm loving the results! I am wearing it in this selfie I posted on my Instagram yesterday, but it went on really well and I felt like it gave my eyes a "pop" that I haven't seen with other brands.
It's a little hard to tell from the photo, but the tip of the brush is actually quite large and full (bushy, if you will lol) so it gives great volume when you're applying it to your lashes. As I test out the other two mascaras I will keep you updated and hopefully narrow down to my favorite!
Thanks for stopping by! xo
