The Great Mascara Debate

I’ve asked some friends and recent clients what their biggest beauty dilemma was…what do you struggle with most when getting yourself “All Dolled Up”. Most of you replied that you are constantly searching for the perfect mascara…join the club.

Finding that perfect mascara can be like searching for “The Holy Grail” of beauty products. There are literally hundreds of choices out there…lengthening, thickening, plumping, curling, nourishing, clear, black, colored…the list goes on and on. So how is a girl supposed to pick the perfect one?

The most important thing to remember is that everyone is different, so finding the right mascara means finding out what works best for YOU. I’ve put together a basic list to help you narrow down the perfect mascara.


If you’re looking for a mascara that promisses to add lots of Length for all those Butterfly Kisses than always look for a long slender brush. The long, slender bristles slip between lashes easily, allowing for maximum length with very few clumps.

All Dolled Up Favs:

Loreal double Extend Tubes
Kevyn Auccoin Volume Macara- Sephora
Benefit They’re Real Mascara- Benefit Cosmetics
Loreal Voluminous
Blinc Kiss Me Mascara- Sephora

If you’re looking for a great Mascara to add lot’s of extra Volume and Drama for those Saucy night out on the town, then reach for a mascara with a nice fat brush. The fatter brush plumps and thickens your lashes.

All Dolled Up Favs:

Loreal Voluminous
MAC Haute and Naughty Lash- M.A.C.
Max Factor Calorie 2000
Covergirl Lash Blast

We can’t talk about Mascara without discussing the different types of wands:

Curved Wands: Curl and lift your lashes from root to tip.

Long Straight Wands: Designed to cover each lash evenly.

Hour Glass Shaped Wands: Creates a wide eyed look by lengthening the inner and outer lashes.

Rubber Bristled Wand: Rubber bristles help to prevent clumping. They come with longer sparse bristles to add length and separate and short tight bristles to add volume.

Lash Comb Wands:  These brushes really help to separate lashes and remove any clumps. They are great for adding length to already thick lashes.

I hope these recommendation have helped to narrow down the great Mascara debate.
