Mascara Review: 2 to SKIP – 1 to KEEP!

I was at the store last weekend, where I saw there was a sale on Rimmel London mascaras. Buy one get one free! Who could pass that up? Not me! So I grabbed two mascaras that I thought I’d like to try.

So I sit down, put all my other makeup on (foundation, eyeshadow, etc.) and I pull out Max Volume Flash, my new mascara. I pull the wand out of the tube – and immediately I HATE IT. It pulled out a TON of mascara, and the brush was all gooped up with black mascara. I scraped it off, and tried to put it on, and I swear I hated it in two strokes. It’s awful. It doesn’t do a darn thing that it says it will. I’ve tried a lot of mascaras, and this one might be one of the worst. Look at that packaging! 14X volume! Fast – no mess lashes! Collagen and Keratin enriched! Their biggest brush ever! Psht. No good. I put the lid back on – and tossed it in the trash.

Then I decide to open the next mascara I bought, Glam’Eyes. I should have known I wouldn’t like it just by looking at the wand. I hate small brushes. I like a nice – thick brush. But I decided to try it anyway, and I didn’t like it at all. Again, everything it promises on the packaging is complete BS. Talk about false advertising! It’s practically the same exact mascara as Max Volume Flash – just in a different tube. Definitely NOT worth my money, and I won’t be trying any more Rimmel mascaras any time soon. I know Erin has tried one that she likes – but I’d definitely tell you guys to skip these two. They’re no good.

So I can’t leave you with all bad news, can I? How about 1 mascara I think you SHOULD try?

I’m absolutely in love with L’Oreal’s Millions of Lashes! I have looooong struggled with drugstore mascaras, because in my opinion, they can’t stand up to some of the more expensive versions like Diorshow. Aaaand then I tried L’Oreal’s Voluminous Million Lashes. It was love at first stroke.

I adore this mascara. For only $8, you’re getting what you could get for $30+ on a more expensive brand. It goes on smoothly, it isn’t clumpy, the brush is fantastic, it doesn’t flake, it actually DOES make your lashes look longer and fuller. In my opinion, it’s one of the few drugstore mascaras that actually live up to the hype. If you’re looking for a new mascara to try – try this guy. You won’t be sorry!

Braided headbands made a comeback at the 2012 SAG Awards. From Kaley Cuoco’s Grecian updo, Dianna Agron’s messy fishtail twist and Busy Philipps’s relaxed beachy braid. I think all three starlets looks beautiful the braid is such a beautiful and youthful accessory.

Kelly Osbourne, Sarah Hyland and Jayma Mays looked pretty and posh in their high ponytails. A few face framing tendrils and beautifully curled ponys made it a great red carpet look.
