10 Mascara Reviews: From Drugstore to High End

Best Drugstore Mascara for Volume

As a follow-up to my Best Lash Primers post, I wanted to share a big ol' post detailing my favourite (and some not-so-favourite) mascaras from the past year or two. I used to do a bunch of "Splurge or Save" comparisons with lots of popular mascaras featured, so check these out for some more amazing dupes:

Best Mascara Primer | Drugstore Dupe for Dior Maximizer 3D and Marc Jacobs Lash Primer

Mascara Primers from the Drugstore

My mascara primer journey began a few years ago when I received a sample of the Dior Diorshow Maximizer 3D Triple volume plumping lash primer ($39) as a GWP from the Dior boutique in Vegas. Once it ran dry, I knew I had to repurchase the full size. This primer is my absolute favourite for its ability to create dense texture and fullness, while also improving the natural thickness and curl of our lashes thanks to an oil-serum concentrate infused into the formula. I end up using less mascara when I have a lash primer on, and it helps reduce clumping, crispiness, dried out lashes and flaking/transfer throughout the day.

This discovery completely changed my mascara game, and since the near $40 price tag is a bit steep, I wanted to try out a whole bunch of other formulas on the market starting at $5 to see if they even compared. This Dior tube does last a very long time though, so let's see how the others stack up.

How To Get Anna Wintour's Bob Hairstyle | TUTORIAL

Anna Wintour Bob Hair

When I first decided to try a haircut with bangs, it was just a regular day at work and I asked my fashionable colleagues what I should do at my lunchtime hair appointment. Raj mentioned that I could try bangs, and I'm so happy I did. With my cowlick at the front right side, I don't properly style my bangs every day, but when I do, it's a fun look. I noticed that when I use my Revlon One-Step Volumizer Hair Dryer to get that super smooth 'do, it looks a heck of a lot like Anna Wintour!
