Mascara: What's Best for Your Lashes?

I think mascara might be one of those products I cannot live without. OK...I can live, but I wouldn't be happy. Kidding! I just love the look of long black lashes

My favorite mascara is L'Oreal's Voluminous with Benefit's BADGal Lash coming in a super close second (they would be tied if not for the price difference).

I asked what mascara CafeMoms liked best in the group All About Hair and Makeup and the top five answers were:

What's your favorite mascara?

    My two favorites would be Lancome's Precision Length Mascara and Cover Girl's LashBlast!  I try to stay away from the Lancome because it is $24 and does not last as long.  I usually go through it in a month!  But I agree with you on the mascara, it is the one make up that I will not leave the house without applying!

    I think I'm going to try the LashBlast. Perhaps it's better than Voluminous!

    I do like the Voluminous one, however I also just discovered the Rimmel London! It's amazing!

    You will LOVE LashBlast!  I even buy the waterproof one in the summer time.  I love how long it makes my lashes!

    I was disappointed in the Mabelline Volum Express Turbo Boost wasn't as great as I had heard it was. It's kinda clumpy.

    I REALLY REALLY like Loreal Double Extend.  This stuff makes thin lashes look fantastic.  It actually extends PAST the normal lash to look more like last extensions.

    BTW....lash extensions are pretty neat if you don't mind spending the $$$
