When it comes to mascara, there are so many different brands, price points, and result factors to consider. Well here is some great news. Most mascaras get their results due to the applicator. Here is a little tip for you. If you find one that works well with your eyes and you are getting the results that you want, keep the applicator and go with a cheaper brand. All you have to do is clean the applicator with eye makeup remover and store it with your other makeup brushes.
Also, here are some alternatives to the higher price point mascaras.
DiorShow Iconic> Try the Covergirl Lashblast Mascara or the Maybelline XXL Extensions (wow)
YSL> Try the Covergirl Volumeexact Mascara
Lancome Definicils> Try the Covergirl Lashexact Mascara
I have found that Covergirl or Maybelline is just as effective as any of the expensive brands. Actually, some even work better.
The Maybelline XXL gave me the effect of false lashes without the false lashes. How great is that?
PS. Always remember to clean your eyes before going to bed! Target has a great eye makeup remover for a very low price. You can also just use olive oil.
