Today I’ll be talking about two of my favourite mascaras. I typically don’t spend much money on mascara, only because I don’t wear it everyday. I rarely buy the same one twice either. I’ve tried many different brands over the years, but only two currently stand out for me. They are the Jordana Best Lash Extreme Volumizing Mascara in ‘Black’ and the Too Faced Better Than Sex mascara.

I like them both equally, but for different reasons. The Too Faced Better Than Sex mascara is great as an everyday mascara. It adds length and volume to the lashes, yet manages to stay quite natural looking. It also separates the lashes really well, and is not clumpy. It gives the lashes a long and wispy look, which is a look I personally like. I reach for this when I want a natural daytime look. It’s also perfect for work.
Now the Jordana Best Lash Extreme Volumizing Mascara definitely gives a much bolder look. This is a Volumizing mascara, as the name suggests and it gives extreme volume! I cannot stress how extremely thick and bold my lashes look when I apply this mascara. I find it is quite heavy for a daytime look, so I tend to wear it mostly at night. The formula is quite thick and it can get a bit clumpy so it’s best to apply it lightly.
I’m only wearing a couple of light coats of the Jordana mascara here but you can see how it thickens and darkens the lashes.
I don’t have a photo of myself wearing the Too Faced mascara but I’ll try to put one up shortly.
Have you tried these mascaras?
