Best Mascaras Of All Time

All women should have an eyelash curler. This also applies to women who don’t wear makeup. It’s not a dangerous tool, although a lot of people are terrified of it. One pinch to the lashes can work miracles as it opens up your eyes and makes you look fresh and awake. Add some mascara, and you’re ready to go....

Just the other day I asked Arvid if I had on any mascara and he said "no", but then he realized he did not know what I was referring to so he asked back, "what is mascara?"

We all know that the eyes are as they say the mirror to the soul.  What woman does not want to make the most of her eyes thus enhancing her entire facial beauty?  I believe for sure that one of my best assets are my eyes (why be shy? I believe I have many great assets) and therefore I try to enhance them as much as possible.  The best way to bring out the life, brightness and beauty I believe is by using mascara.  Just a few strokes one goes from plain to beautiful. 

That's why when I saw this article from BAZAAR about the best mascaras of all time thought I would share with you.  No one has to agree with it, but just for the heck of it.  Many mascaras listed are priced right and I will tell you that I have tried just about most of them available here in the US.

You decide which ones work best for you.

Maybelline Great Lash Mascara.

Price starts from $4
Available in drugstores and now even supermarkets.  This mascara has been around since the 70's.
I have used this and though not my favorite it sure does the job and the price can't be beat.

Diorshow Mascara

Price starts from $25.
Hollywood  makeup artists swear that this mascara lasts forever and and that it builds incredible volume.

Lancome Definicils High Definition Mascara

Can be bought at the beauty counters at the malls.  This is one of my very favorite mascaras.  It separates and lenghtens without clumping.  Even after do two to three coats it stays on light and looks natural.

CoverGirl LashBlast Volume Mascara
Starting at $8 in drugstores this is also very nicely priced.  Have used it but not a favorite. 

Benefit They're Real! Mascara
Starting at $22.  Have never tried this, but will look for it next time I'm out shopping.  I love to try different and new stuff.

Clinique Bottom Lash Mascara

Starting at $10.  I do love many of the Clinique products, but was not very impressed with the mascara.
L'Oreal Voluminous Volume Building Mascara

Starting at $7 at drugstores this is one mascara I have to say really works.  No matter what brand I have at home I always keep a tube of L'Oreal Mascara as well.  It is very soft and does give dramatic lenght.

NARS Larger Than Life Volumizing Mascara

Starting at $25.  I have never tried it but have heard quite a bit of good things about it. Supposedly it is enhanced with conditioning vitamin E and macadamia nut oil to lend a glossy look while the honeycomb-shaped bristles on the square wand help separate out lashes for impressive definition.
Shu Uemura Ultimate Natural Mascara

Starting at $28.  Don't know much about it.

Guerlain Noir G Mascara

Starting at $49 and can be purchased in the "better" department store such as Saks, Nieman and Marcus.
Long time ago I tried it, but cannot really remember much all I recall was the pretty package/tube it comes in.

Every phase of your life has beauty in it. We all want youth, but at some point we have to realize that we’re getting older and it’s not all about foundation or mascara. If you eat and live wrong, it will have an impact on your looks. You know the tricks:?Eat more vegetables, stop smoking, drink water and cut back on alcohol....
