something big has happened

I didn't want to announce anything until I was absolutely sure and I think it's safe to say I am certain.

Hold on to your hats folks:

I've found a mascara that I like more than Loreal Voluminous. *gasp* It is hard to believe since I've been loyal to that product since I first started using mascara in junior high and I have recommended it to many a girlfriend. I still think it's a fantastic product but I've fallen in love with someone else. I've used up 2 tubes before I felt confident enough to make this announcement.


Maybelline Volum' Express THE TURBO

There are a few reasons why I like it better: in my opinion it is less gloopy and separates my lashes better. Which is not something I thought Voluminous lacked I just notice this does it better. I haven't struggled with chronic under eye smudging from Voluminous as lots of girls have but I can sympathize with them as it has happened on occasion. With this mascara that has never happened. Lastly the main reason I like this mascara more is because I find it less messy on my eyelids. I always had to do a Q-tip clean up from mascara smudges all over my eyelids which I just figured was part of mascara-ing but this mascara is far less messy and I often don't have to do a wipe up at all. Bonus!

If you're looking for a new mascara I'd recommend giving this one a chance, I was surprisingly impressed.

  3. hmm gonna have to try this kind after mine run out. I too have the problem of having to use a q-tip after apply mascara and yes the amount that it gets on my eyelids does depend on the brand.

  4. I must say that I love it too! I bought some when we were together and I have been loving on it ever since--and I was not a fan of your former favorite. So I am glad to see that this one won your heart over!

  9. Thanks for the tip! I have been using Covergirl Lashblast which came to me highly recommended (even though it's really cheap!) but I will definitely try this Maybelline one.

  10. if it makes you feel better, L'Oreal makes Maybelline products.. so the mascaras are made by the same company and you are still LOYAL! :P
