It all started because I was reading In Style magazine. Never read fashion magazines, they are bad for your health. (Do as I say, not as I do.) There was an entire article Consumer Reports style about mascara. Some random women tested over 50 brands of mascara to find the best tube. Each one was rated on volume and length and thickness and blackness and how pretty the package was. Mascaras priced any where from $2.50 per tube to $250 per tube were tested. It was the most in depth mascara article I'd ever read, and reading it changed my life because it introduced me to Dior Show mascara.
This is hands down the best mascara I've ever used. Lancome comes in a close second, but there is just something about Dior. Give me an eyelash curler and a tube of this stuff and I'm in eyelash heaven. I love it. It's wonderful. The only problem is it costs $30, and it loses its power in 2 months. Kind of like Cinderella, at midnight it goes from creating Lucious Lashes to making Plain Peepers. It turns back into your average drug store mascara.
With that said, I'm looking for an average drug store mascara that will make me bat my eyelashes without breaking my bank. So help me out, Internet, what is your favorite mascara? I wish I weren't quite so interested in this topic seeing as it makes me seem quite shallow, but I love mascara, so I'm going to blog about it.
