I am definitely a mascara junkie. I am always convinced there is a better one out there than the one I am using. I will dry drug store mascara, I will try department store mascara and anything else in between. In fact I am surprised I haven’t come across a homemade mascara because I would probably try that too.
I am easily unimpressed when it comes to mascara so when I find one I like I stick to it for a long, long time. Right now I am debating between two mascaras: BareMinerals Lash Domination and Lancôme Grandiôse.
The BareMinerals Lash Domination mascara is probably the best volumizing mascara I have ever tried. It is good for layering when you are first putting it on. It does not flake and it makes my lashes look really thick. It does give some length but the length this Lash Domination mascara gives is nothing compared to the length that the Lancôme Grandiôse mascara.
The Lancôme Grandiôse mascara literally makes my lashes look like they are fake, in a good way. The length literally reaches to my eyebrows. Of course I do use it with the Lancôme Cils Booster XL to give my lashes some added length, but Grandiôse does specialize in length, lift and volume.
I, however, am not super impressed with the volume aspect of this mascara. It can get clumpy so you have to really watch how much you put on. Some days I really love this mascara and others I am not sure. It depends on how much product is on the brush (less is more) and how delicate I am when putting it on.
The advantage that this mascara does have is its bent neck, or swan neck as they say. This helps you get into those annoying crevices and basically helps you not get mascara on your nose!
If only I could combine both of these formulas!
