I need your help. I learned from a friend of mine that my lashes will hold their curl better with a “gel based” mascara. Of course, this make up artist friend of mine suggested some high end product. Now I don’t mind spending the money from time to time, especially if the product works great. But…I only wear make up once or twice a week. Which of course means, I never get my money’s worth out of a full tube.
So I’m hoping to find a good drugstore brand. I know all the magazines rave about the pink miracle, Great Lash, but I just can’t get behind it. The wand is too wimpy for my tastes. So I thought I’d ask the mightly blogsophere.
Help a gal out – what’s your favorite mascara and why?
And now we return to trying to ditch this migraine. You can seem to set a clock by my migraines and when I need a chiropractic adjustment.
I love Lancome Definicils but it is more on the pricey side (about $24 a pop). A good drugstore mascara is L’Oreal Voluminous Naturale. Here’s a review that one of my readers wrote all about this L’Oreal mascara
Hope this helps!

Thanks Nai! That’s actually what I was using last (until I was gifted some GWP-sized brands).
i’m a loreal girl! in fact, i’m pretty sure that loreal still owns lancome or vis versa… so i ditched using lancome way back in the day-80’s that is! my latest loreal-du jour is the telescope mascara… but so far they all have been fab.
Krista, I always heard that as well (though I think it was the other way around – Lancome/KMS owns L’Oreal). I think for that reason, I’ve always tended to go L’Oreal as well.
I’m wondering about Rimmel and if anyone’s tried any of their stuff. I keep thinking they’re geared towards the younger, more alternative crowd – Wet & Wild comes to mind, but I could be wrong.
I’ve been using Cover Girl’s Lash Blast Waterproof mascara for the last three months and am loving it. Prior to that, I used Lancome Definicils and Dior’s Diorshow mascara. Out of all of them I get the best value from Cover Girl. You should give it a shot – you really can’t go wrong with a $7 tube.
I also like Maybelline’s XXL mascara. It has two wands – one for volume and one for length, and also costs around $7.

I second Abby’s recommendation. I bought Lash Blast after learning about it on ChicCritique.com and I love it. I’ll never use anything else. Ever. I liked it alot more than Lash Exact
I actually really like DiorShow mascara. It’s $24, but a lot better than any drug store brand I’ve tried. You can even get it on sephora.com where shipping is usually free for over $50 and you get free samples;)
