I love make up and more importantly love long thick lashes with a bold lip as my every day look. But sometimes I do just wear mascara and when I am wearing mascara alone, I am VERY particular on what I like and use. I have used many, many mascaras…in all price ranges and my top three brands are Dior, Maybelline and Lancôme. Even though those brands are the crème du crème for mascaras in my opinion, I am always seeking and trying new brands just to make sure I’m not missing out.
But back to the eye sampler in this set you receive 6 deluxe size samples of mascaras so you can try them all out and whatever one ticked your fancy you receive a coupon of free full size mascara. The brands are Shiseido, Clairns, Elizabeth Arden, Benefit, Lancôme and Smashbox. Below I have rated the mascaras brand performance and ranked them out of 5 –
Shiseido – Perfect Mascara Full Definition
Designed for short and fine lashes it’s easy to handle brush gives length and volume to the shorts lashes. Smudge proof removes easily. Down side there is a fragrance to this mascara and it really makes my eyes water.
Lancome Hynose Drama
Get ultra volume-boosting lashes. Brush is designed with a S shaped curve, grasps and loads lashes with a fanned out look. I’m obsessed with Lancome mascara.
Elizabeth Arden Beautiful Lash Enhancing Mascara
Ultra black lashes fuses with care. Gives multi-dimensional mascara volume, length and curl
Clarins Wonder Perfect Mascara-
It does add volume and some length but it flaked throughout the day and messy to apply
Benfit BADgal Lash-
Famously big brush coats lashes with a ultra black look. I found the wand very hard to use on bottom lashes
Smashbox Photo Op Eye Brightening Mascara-
3-in-1 eye opening mascara. Has “Blue Prism Technology” that brightens for a wide-eyed effect. Flakes and formula was runny creating a mess. Not a fan.
Out of all six mascara Lancome and Elizabeth Arden were my favorite. Lancome mascara I gave a 5 out of 5 because I think Lancome is a top leader when it comes to performance, although I didn’t pick it I got the best results. I ended up going with Elizabeth Arden because I was really surprise how good it made my lashes look and it’s not a brand that I ever use. I really like the length and the fullness I get from this product on my lashes. The wand takes a little getting use to. The bristles pack a lot of mascara; I found it stays on all day, and gives beautiful long sexy lashes. It is comfortable for all day wear and comes off easily at night. 4.5 out of 5 stars because the bristles on wand need a little work!
