Mascara and my mascaras: My Mascara journey.. the sunny side and the dark

So, you are wondering what this is all about? I know I haven't done too many posts like this. Why or how I use a makeup item or why that is sometimes necessary ( the one one more so because I feel, most of my readers are makeup geeks so, I have really very little to preach here).
Anyway, as a novice, I had never understood the importance of mascaras. One reason was that, for a very long time, makeup to me meant a nice lipstick. Back then, I had beautiful lashes as well I think. Since the last two years,  when I spent most of my leisure time watching youtube videos, I actually learnt the application, etc. I would discuss my learning curve in a separate post.


Mascara downside and the necessity: Dealing with lashfall.
As I started wearing eye makeup, mascaras started to become an essential part and now, it feels like my
makeup is not complete without it. Since my lashfall  due to blepharitis ( I had discussed that here), and then, my bad brush with the waterproof variant with Maybelline's Hypercurl Volume Express which gave me not only a bad lashfall, but also the regrowth looks quite weaker. Now that my lashes had become thinner, I mascaras became more important. I know, I should stay away. but these days I am venturing more into the washable variant and ah! What a relief! I had been doing certain things in order to get my lashes in shape as well. but that's a different story which I would be coming up with shortly.


Why more mascara?
I am loving mascara more, because, after I say powder my face, the powder sticks to my lashes and it looks lighter. A generous coat makes them thicker and I take care to look down and brush along vertically to give them maximum curl without using a curler which might further damage the lashes. Luckily, my lashes are naturally long. hence, my technique works to fan them out and a good coat does the job.


I received one mascara as a gift from a cousin and the other two as samples and the rest with my own money. But since, I don't want them to become dry, I am kind of using all of them. I shall review them shortly and the products would finally enter the arena for a battle while I also come up with how I am letting my lashes grow back to their full strength again.
 Here is the list of my humble collection
  1. Maybelline Colossal Volume mascara,
  2.  Maybelline Hypercurl mascara waterproof,
  3.  Bourjois Glamour and Volume,
  4.  Ellis Faas mascara, 
  5. Lakme Iconic Mascara

  9. I have one from Clinique, and I am satisfied with it. But would like to try a different one the next time I purchase, which will be pretty soon! So, can you suggest something good? I sweat a lot, so summers are usually bad for my mascara trip.

    1. Hey Simi, sorry for being so late to respond. if you want a water-proof variant go for Maybelline;s Colossal Volum' Express in water-proof variant. you can even check out the review here. If you do not need the water-proof one, try lakme's Eyeconic. I am reaching out for it more often now and it washes off in slightest contact with water. So choose wisely :P
