Are You Lashing Out at Me?

With my sensitive eyes, I have been looking for the perfect mascara. One that will lengthen my lashes without causing irritation to my eyes.  I have tried several brands and with some I end up looking like a raccoon by the end of the day or I have to keep wiping my watery eyes because they’re irritating me.

Well, thankfully, with all the brands I’ve tried (and it’s been a few) I finally found some that are true to their claim. Listed below are the mascaras that work for me regarding sensitivity, length and giving me those long luscious lashes we’re all after and those that failed.

Hall of Fame

  1. Makeup Forever

    In one word WOW! This mascara is amazing. It gave my lashes the false lash effect without the irritation. Ahh… a sigh of relief-long, dark lashes without clumps, cakiness, irritation or rub-offs. This mascara definitely gets two thumbs up for making my lashes look beautiful and not budging until I take it off.
  2. Benefit They’re Real Mascara

    I put this one up there with Makeup Forever as well. My lashes were so long it actually looked like I had lash extensions. A+ Benefit.

3. Tarte – Lights, Camera, Lashes
Tarte
I heard good things about this mascara but for me it didn’t deliver what they claimed. I’ve had better outcomes with other mascaras on lengthening and believe for the price Tarte charges, they should have come through as promised. On thing I didn’t like is the rub-off. I ended up with raccoon eyes at the end of the day.  However, I do give it a thumbs up for no irritation, coating my lashes nicely & lengthening a bit but not to the false lash effect as they advertise. Why Tarte?!? I really wanted to like this. 😦

4. Lancôme Définicils High Definition Mascara
Lancome
I probably should have put this as number one since this is my staple make-up item. I can not say enough about this product. There is no irritation, it elongates my lashes to long natural looking lashes, has absolutely no rub-off and no heavy lash feeling or cakiness. I’ve always been a fan of Lancôme’s mascaras and this by far truly does what it says.

Hall of Shame

  1. Almay Get Up & Grow
    Almay
    NO! This gets a big N…O… So, ok, I don’t know if I got a bad product or something but this mascara disappointed me to where I almost called the manufacturer myself. My eyes were burning and watering so bad I had to take it off.  What happened with Almay? I thought this product was made for people with allergies and sensitivity to chemicals. #HighlyDisappointed
  2. Physician’s Formula Organic Wear Fake Out
    PF
    So, being that Almay didn’t deliver its claims they posted on their packaging, I tried Physician’s Formula for my sensitive eyes and hmm….what a let down! I ended up looking like a panda at the end of the day the rub-off was so bad. And, as far as the false lash effect, yeah right, What happened PF because I never saw it?!?! I can honestly say though, this product did not irritate my eyes and for that I commend PF for a sensitive eye formulation, but for a false lash effect – this is not the one.
