Mascara Tip

One of my go to pieces of make up is mascara. It's like the cherry on the top for me. It just sets my look. But it can't be just any mascara...you gotta have the right brush!

It really makes all the difference. Most mascara brushes are designed like this:

The brush make the mascara very clumpy on the brush which in turn ends up clumpy on your lashes.

THIS is the brush I'm in love with.
Instead of a brush, it's almost like plastic bristles. There's less clumping on the brush which means less clumping on your lashes.

This brush is by Cover Girl.  I've used the Lash Blast and Lash Exact.  I like them both!  Seriously, if you're in the market for some new mascara, you need to try these.  Very reasonably priced too at about $7.

This post is just my personal opinion.  I was not paid or provided product to say this...I just love it!

I agree, Stace! I don't know which one I use...it's in an orange container but I definitely love it!

I really like lash blast!!! I haven't tried lash exact, though. I'm always going through bottles of mascara like crazy. Another favorite of mine is by Mary Kay. :)

This is my most favorite SUYL post ever- I love beauty tips!

I agree about that type of brush- it is the bomb! I have been using Buxom Lash mascara lately and it has that same type of brush.

I use Lash Blast too - love it. I always get frustrated when I try any other kind.

I will have to try those out. I've always wiped my brush down with a tissue before using. It gets rid of clumps. Thanks for sharing!

I've been looking for just the right mascara so I'll have to try it out. I'm not much of a makeup girl, but mascara is a MUST!

Eyes without mascara are like a sky without stars! LOL! It IS a must.

My personal fave is Maybelline Stiletto.

I love hearing about people's make up preferences! I was a Clinique girl for a long time. I also loved Dior Show mascara but it's hard to justify the cost. I just switched to L'Oreal and love it! It's tricky to find eye make-up that's friendly for contact wearers but L'Oreal works.
