The Mascara Files: Lorac, Benefit, Too Faced & Avon

Ever since my bust with Maybelline Volum' Express Falsies Big Eyes, I've been on the hunt for a new mascara. Rather than flood you with reviews, I thought I bundle some short ones in what I'm dubbing: "The Mascara Files."


Lorac's Special Effects Defining & Lengthening Mascara in Black Pearl ($23) - I received this in my Hautelook Summer Essentials Grab Bag. I do like the white primer before adding the black. Overall I think this mascara is great for separating lashes or "defining" them. But for a night out I'd definitely add a more voluminous mascara for big dramatic lashes.


Avon's Mega Effects Mascara in Black Noir ($10) - I was honestly a little terrified to use this mascara. The brush is unlike any other I've tried. The process was a bit awkward coming straight at your eye. The results were okay... probably because I didn't use it to it's full advantage after nearly poking my eye out. It wasn't "mega effects" but it did separate my lashes.


Benefit's They're Real Mascara in Jet Black($23) - I received a sample in my birthday gift from Sephora. Everyone told me I'd love it and I can see why. I'm not particular a fan of the spikey round end but it did give me great volume and lengthening.


Too Faced's Better Than Sex Mascara in Black ($23) - A lot of sexually suggestive mascaras these days... lol. I received in my goodie bag when I attend a Sephora VIB event recently. The packaging was beautiful. This is my kind of brush. I usually layer a defining mascara with this more voluminous brush to pack on the impact. I'm definitely a fan of this for an evening look!

What mascaras have you tried recently that you love?

  1. Ok, so always mix two mascaras. I got Mary Kay Lash Love Lengthening Mascara. Which I was skeptical at first, but it really adds length, I then do a coat of L'Oreal Voluminous Volume Building Mascara.

  4. OOOOO you tried some good ones!! I have been curious about the benefit and the new too faced mascara. I am obsessed with mascara but I don't venture out and try many of them. I stick to my Avon super shock mascara.
