Today I have a fun post for you, it was my birthday last Friday and one of the presents I received was the Sephora Favorites Lashstash. This is a set of ten mascaras, two of which are full size. I love trying different mascaras, so this was a great gift. I really like this packaging, the box is in a sleeve that has a picture of all of the mascaras and a description of them on the back. Once you take that off you see a nice pinky purple box with what I would describe as up close images of glitter and sparkles. On the inside it says Love, Sephora #sephorafavorites and all the mascaras are lined up.
The first mascara we have is full size and it’s the Urban Decay Perversion Bigger, Blacker, Badder in Black. I haven’t tried all of them yet, but this one I have worn and I quite like it. Prior to this I hadn’t worn Urban Decay mascara, so I was excited to try it. It not only gave my lashes volume, but they looked longer and it went on really smooth. The brush is more of a big and fluffy-ish brush and when I saw it I expected there would be some clumping but there really wasn’t.
The second mascara we have is the Milk Makeup Kush Mascara in Boom. I am a Milk Makeup newbie, I haven’t tried any of their products. So I’m interested to try this and see what it does for my lashes, I have heard good things. And this is supposed to give you long lasting high volume.
Next we have the Hourglass Caution Extreme Lash Mascara in Ultra Black. As a brand, I really like Hourglass. Their Ambient Lighting Powders are incredible and their foundation sticks are really nice. So, when I saw this mascara I was excited by it. I have worn this and it gave me really nice, full lashes. One coat probably would have done it, but I never do just one coat, and I was happily surprised at not only how buildable this is, but at how light it felt after layering. And this brush is cool in the fact that the end isn’t pointed, I guess I would call it tapered, and I was able to get all of my lashes successfully.
Moving on, we have the Smashbox Super Fan Fanned-Out Mascara in Black. This is the first mascara that I tried when I got this box and it definitely does what it says on the tin. My lashes were lengthened and fanned out and I really liked the look. This has a silicone brush and it’s a 360 design, so no matter how you turn it, you’re getting the mascara. I know some people don’t like the silicone brushes, but I’ve never had a problem and this one is nice, the bristles are the perfect length.
There are three mascaras in this box that I use regularly and love, and this is one of them. It’s the Sephora Collection LashCraft Big Volume Mascara in Black. This mascara really does give you big volume and it has jojoba oil so it doesn’t flake or clump. The brush is curved in the middle so you get maximum coverage.
The next mascara that I use and love has been my go-to holy grail mascara forever and it’s Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara. I always get full, defined and luscious lashes and this has a permanent spot in my makeup bag.
Moving on, we have the second full size mascara, Lancôme Hypnose Drama Instant Full Body Volume Mascara in 01 Excessive Black. I’ve never worn a Lancôme mascara before, but I was intrigued by this one. The brush has a pretty serious curve in it and it’s supposed to give you big lashes in one coat, so I’ll let you guys know what I think.
The third mascara that I use and love is the Marc Jacobs Beauty Velvet Noir Major Volume Mascara in Noir. You really do get major volume from this and it has a nice big brush.
The second to last mascara isn’t a mascara, it’s the Dior Diorshow Maximizer 3D/ Triple Volume Plumping Lash Primer. I’ve never worn a lash primer, but my mom really likes them, so I’ll give this a try and see what I think.
And the last mascara we have is the Benefit BAD gal BANG! Mascara in Black. There was a lot of hype when this came out and now I fully understand why. The length and volume you get from this is insane. I was really impressed and this will for sure have a place in my makeup bag. The brush is a long, skinnier silicone brush that has a lot of flex in it, so you can get all of your lashes.
That about wraps it up for this post, if you guys have tried/use any of these regularly let me know which one and if you have this box, I’d love to know which is your favorite.
Until next time, you can never have too many mascaras and may your lashes always be full :).
