B//B DUPE: mascara

If you want volume and length but loathe clumpy spider lashes? This will be your jam! I love love love Tarte mascaras because they are vegan, organic and cruelty free, but if you’re on a budget then the Loreal “Voluminous Carbon Black” will become your bae 💋

LOREAL Voluminous Carbon Black ($7.99 for 0.23oz)

TARTE Gifted ($23 for 0.24oz)

This mascara is full, natural volume in one coat, but TWO COATS??! That is when the magic happens! Here is the look that I created with this mascara today!

fave: mascara

After wearing lash extensions for a thousand and one years my lashes are beat and was out of the mascara game. So in true beauty blogger fashion, I ordered ALLLLLLL the options from the drugstore and most of the top reviewed options from Sephora! I present to you my favorites that lift and curl my meager lashes and the tools that I use to get that perfect lash!!

First things first: lash curler! I used to think this was a crazy hoax that women used just to make themselves feel better about their lashes and honestly I never saw a difference after using one so I just stop trying. Well, that is until I got this bad boy from Shiseido. HOLY COW! My clients are all dumbfounded by the lift they get from this curler and some people even say they’re had theirs for 7+ years and STILL get those same incredible results. It is the best in the biz and I can honestly say that my stubby lil’ lashes have this curler to thank for even being noticeable at all!

I looooooove colored mascaras, but investing in a big tube just isn’t nesseccary, I I reach for the blue “Zoom” mascara from MAC on those days where I want my look to be fun and youthful. My tippy top favorite that I grab for a large majority of the time is the Benefit “Roller Lash” because it gives me awesome all around volume and lift. The next favorite is my beloved Maybelline “The Rocket” which gives me ALL DAY lift and separation! The Maybelline “Lash Sensational” is another one of my favorites that gives a more feminine ‘winged’ look to the lashes, but builds up volume nicely too. Then for those natural days I always reach for the Tarte “Gifted” mascara because it looks so stunning on the eyes, but you can build up without looking crazy cakey.

After buying over $200 in drugstore mascaras and putting them to the test, I am thrilled to show you my top two from the bunch!! First @maybelline takes the cake. Hands down this brand performs the best, is easiest to remove and is not irritating on the eyes 🙌🏼

My two bffs in the mascara biz are The Rocket Volume Express and the Lash Sensational, fo sho!! I love that lil’ rocket right there for an all day lift and va-va-voom fullness and the lash sensational  for a more feminine fullness.

RN they are BOTH less than $6 – can I get a hallelujah!
