The Mascara Diaries// My Daily Faves

Hey Guys!

It's the weekend, woohoo! I literally live for the weekends, after studying/ homework-ing (it's a technical term, ok?) from 4.30pm until 9.30pm every day, and from 2.30pm until 9.00pm on a Wednesday, it's fair to say that I am wrecked by the time Friday comes! My mocks are the week after next (eeeep!) so I am working very hard towards those, and I filled out my CAO Choices (choices for college for any non- Irish readers) today, which was terrifying! Anyway, enough with the boring school talk, on to today's post! I will be showing you my top mascaras and they go from drugstore to slightly more expensive. I have tried and tested these mascaras over the past few months, and one has even been a repurchase. So, on to my mascara heroes!

1// MAC False Lash Extreme Black

 I adore this mascara. It has been my most-used mascara for about a year now, and is a repurchase for me. First of all, the packaging is beautiful, it looks so sleek and expensive with it's intricately designed lid. The wand is tapered at the end, which makes it great for getting lashes in the corner, and the bottom lashes. The formula is not too wet so dries quite quickly. However, it makes the lashes feel soft and fluttery, not dry and flaky. It makes my lashes long and voluminous, and the curl lasts all day, with no flaking. I will definitely be repurchasing this again. RRP: €23.50. Available in Brown Thomas and BT2 stores, or online here.

2// Maybelline The Rocket Volum' Express

This is another brilliant mascara from Maybelline. If you are just starting out with makeup, and are looking for great quality, affordable mascara, I would suggest checking out a Maybelline counter for some great formulas. The Rocket was raved about when it first came out, so when it finally came over to Ireland, I quickly tracked one down. I am so glad I did! I use this every day, on top of whatever mascara I am wearing that day. It really boosts the lashes, and the rubber wand with the short bristles really gets into the lashes to provide length and volume. The bright purple packaging is also handy and instantly recognizable when you are in a rush! RRP: €11.99. Available in Boots, and on most pharmacies, or online here.

3// Soap & Glory Thick & Fast Super Volume 

This is a new addition to my rapidly growing mascara collection, and it has becoming a firm favorite. The large brush grabs every lash and makes them appear thick and long. The formula is quite dry, but like the MAC formula, makes the lashes feel fluttery. This mascara holds a curl all day, and I have gotten quite a few compliments about my eyelashes while wearing this! RRP: €13.00. Available in Boots, and online here.

I hope you found this run-down of my favorite mascaras useful. If you are just starting out in makeup, or a fully-fledged makeup obsessive *raises hand*, then maybe you can use this post to find some new mascaras!

Chat to you soon,

xoxo, Emma
