The Great Debate...Mascara Style

I have known for a few weeks that my mascara was coming to its end. Normally, I would just make a quick stop at the drug store and pick up my staple, but I've been using the same kind for about a year or so...L'Oreal Voluminous, a kind that I have LOVED...and it seems that my little eyelashes have become immune to its wonderfulness.

I'm not the expert on makeup. I pretty much wear the same stuff all day, every day. I don't have a casual "day" look or a fancy "night" look. I can barely apply the basic stuff, people. One thing I do know is that there are some people that LOVE makeup. So, I decided to ask the twitter and facebook world what kind of mascara to use.

Let me tell you, some people are PASSIONATE about their mascara. For that, I'm thankful! I now have a list of about 10 to try. Of course, that left me with the problem of picking which one to try first. I was able to eliminate some of them because I was working all day yesterday and not close to the mall. This left a handful of drug store options. I could eliminate one because it was the one I had used previously. With three options remaining, I decided to go with the one worn by the person that has the best eyelashes ever!

I met Mary a little over a year ago when we joined the same Bible study group. Her makeup looks great all day, every day---quite different from mine---and she has GORGEOUS eyelashes. So, when I read her response to my call for mascara suggestions, I knew I had found a winner.

I LOVE CoverGirl Volume Exact! It's in a maroon tube. It makes lashes really full and it separates perfectly. Let us know what you pick. :-)

Friends, she is right. This mascara is like a dream come true for my lashes. No clumps, nice and dark, extra volume, and it separates the lashes so it looks like I have more than I really do. All of that happened with my amateur application...there's no telling what some of you beauty experts could do with that little tube!

I'm a huge fan of both L'Oreal Voluminous and Givenchy Phenomen'Eyes! Keep us posted on your mascara journey though... A good tube of mascara is hard to find!
