My Favourite Mascaras

So I have 2 favourite mascaras that I almost always use together but they sit on opposite end of almost every scale, hence how they work together so well.

Drum roll please…

Small wand with varying bristle size

Big Wand

Plastic bristles

Brush bristles

Wet formula

NYX Stacked Lush Lashes Mascara


I like to use this mascara either on its own for a more casual and simpler look however, I also like applying it as a base before my Estee Lauder Sumptuous Extreme Lash Multiplying Volume Mascara. Its small bristles allow me to apply the mascara really close to my eyelid. I like to use the longer bristles on my top lashes and the smaller bristles are perfect for my bottom lashes. It’s like a 2 in 1 mascara and that’s probably what i love most about it. I also appreciate that it doesn’t crumble off my eyelashes throughout the day like many other mascaras at similar price points have. I would definitely re-purchase this mascara.

NYX Mascara

NYX products can be bought from their website, Priceline or Target.


Estee Lauder Sumptuous Extreme Lash Multiplying Volume Mascara


I managed to get my hands on this mascara in a magazine. It came with a full size mascara included as a free gift which is an amazing deal because for a $10 magazine, you receive a $48 mascara. I really can’t say enough good things about this mascara though. I love the wet formula as it applies so smoothly onto my lashes and makes them look so long. The big bushy wand helps create volume and makes my lashes look really thick and full. The one slightly negative thing is that it can be hard to work with such a full brush if you have shorter eyelashes or when you  try to apply the mascara really close to the eye. My tip for when mascara gets on your eyelid is to let it dry before trying to wipe it away with a cotton swab.
As much as I love this mascara, I can’t see myself purchasing it for its full price. I know that there are many other mascaras out there that are just as amazing for a lower price point.
You can purchase Estee Lauder from their website, Myer, David Jones and Sephora.



I hope you found this review useful and possibly helped you make a mascara purchase. Is mascara a must for you? Which is your favourite?
