The 8 best volumizing mascaras that you must buy now

Everyone loves the look of full, lush lashes! We spend millions of dollars a year buying mascaras or going to the salon to get individual lashes installed. I myself cannot live without mascara and I often have at least two tubes open at any given time. I usually crave the biggest, baddest lashes. The more volume the better. I don’t really care for curling and I like length, but I love volume. So here are my picks for the 8 best volumizing mascaras that you must try. There’s a mix of drugstore and high-end so you are bound to find something that you like.

Best Volumizing Mascara – Tips

When I am picking a mascara, there are a few things that I look for:

  • The blackest and sootiest of blacks. Because of my dark skin, I love wearing the blackest shade that I can find. I have no time for soft blacks or browns.
  • Full mascara brush – I really like a traditional mascara brush. Especially if it is on the larger side. I am not a crazy fan of the plastic, comb-style brushes. I love the fullness that they give.
  • Long wearing – but washable. I don’t want the mascara to flake off, especially after an intense workout. I don’t do waterproof mascaras.

Quick review: Maybelline Great Lash Mascara in Totally Teal

[twitter-follow screen_name=’NoireTropicalB’]

Hey guys!

So as you may know, Maybelline NY is the official makeup sponsor for New York Fashion Week and they have released a limited edition mascara collection that will be available in stores only in August in the US.  I don’t think these were released to all drugstores, I found mine at Walgreens and I saw them at Rite-Aid.  Also I heard they are available at Target, but I have yet to see them in Duane Reade or CVS.  Anyway, there are 4 new colours available in the classic Great Lash packaging.  I love coloured mascara and the words ‘limited edition’ makes these irresistible to me! I picked up just one of the colours as you guys know that I am not a fan of the original as the brush does nothing to my lashes and the formula is kinda thin for my liking.

So here’s Totally Teal, a really nice colour.

Maybelline Falsies Flared! A review

[twitter-follow screen_name=’NoireTropicalB’]

Maybelline has been adding to their Falsies line every few months.  I tried both the original and the Black Drama versions. I held off on getting the Falsies, ‘cuz, what else could they do? Eventually, the complusive beauty buyer in me won out.  I passed Go and collected my mascara in Blackest Black.

According to Maybelline, Falsies Flared is supposed to give you thick voluminous, flared out lashes, with no clumping.  The volume is supposed to come from the the Pro-Keratin formula and the patented spoon-shaped mascara wand gives the shape or flare.

[twitter-follow screen_name=’NoireTropicalB’]

I was supposed to review this mascara a while ago, but better late than never, right?

Make Up For Ever Smoky Lash

Smoky Lash packaging

According to MUFE, Smoky Lash contains an ultra-pigmented product that gives exceptional volume, length and curl for you smokiest lash. Upon opening the package, it contains your standard wand and brush (not too large), that is quite dense and is supposed to apply the product form the roots to tip, which adds volume and length.
