The Perfect Mascara?

Most of the make-up that I use I'm 110% in love with. I am loyal to my favorite brands: MAC, Make Up Forever, Tarte, Urban Decay and Too Faced. But sadly I don't have a favorite mascara.

I usually buy drugstore mascaras because I'm a weirdo and like to make sure I throw them away before the 3 months hit. But I couldn't help but fall in love with this awesome mascara sampler at Sephora last week! It's originally $40 but currently on sale for $32. It has an amazing eyelash curler by Tarte that I am LOVING! And 1 full size mascara and 9 sample size mascaras (which are all still decently sized).

I have only tried the Benefit BadGal and so far so good. I can't wait to try more! I definitely think that this is WELL worth the $32 price tag!

What is your favorite mascara? Do you think drug store mascaras are equal to department store brands?

oh my gosh! I am always on a quest for the perfect mascara! I used to be faithful to L'Oreal Le Grand Curl but ever since they stopped making it I have been looking for a new fav! Keep us updated on what you think of the other ones!

I tend to think drugstore brands are just as good, but I'm always looking for something better. This set looks amazing, good thing I'm going to be swinging by a Sephora today. It shall be mine!

I NEVER buy mascara b/c I just use the free samples in the gift with purchase, but I have fallen in love with Clinique's High Lengths mascara. My sister works at Sephora and she swears by it too, out of all the ones she has access to!

I always buy drug store mascara because I have been so disappointed with other brands that I paid so much for. The Yellow Mabeline one is my current fav and has been for the last year! Have you ever tried the mascara primer from Lancome? Its AMAZING.

I love MAC makeup!

I found DiorShow at Sephora and fell in love. It is a bit on the pricey side but totally worth it. Is that in your kit? You should try it.

I love mascara too! I think drug store can be just as good as sephora. I use buxom and maybelline falsies.

I love this set! I got it for Christmas. Like you, I've only used the benefit badgal because i want to get as much use out of each one as I can, but I'm dying to try the others. I think its a great way to find a new mascara! I usually buy new full size tubes every few weeks but when they don't live up to the hype, I just toss it. Such a waste of $$

I'm so with you on the 3-month expiration date! I write the date I open my mascara on the tube with a Sharpie. Ha! :) I used to use DiorShow but switched to drugstore mascara to save some $ and am just as thrilled! I am using the new Maybelline "One by One" and love it.
