My Top 5 Mascaras

Hello my pumpkins!

I hope you are all having a good day! Today I am sharing with you my top 5 mascaras, so my ultimate favorite mascaras. I own and tried a lot of mascaras so it was hard narrowing them down to 5 only.

Before diving into this post, don’t forget to check my previous post which is the movie review on ‘Coco’. [Click here]

#5 Urban Decay Perversion Mascara – 23$


I like this mascara not because it gives intense volume to my lashes but because it makes my eyelashes look extremely black and makes my lower lashes look fabulous. I also think the packaging is sleek!

I usually use this mascara when I am not wearing any makeup.

#4 Paradise Extatic by L’Oreal – 14 Euros 


Even though this mascara is not cruelty-free, I use it some time to time because it offers volume and length to my lashes [after 2 coats], I think it is a good dupe for the better than sex mascara.

I still think that the Better Than Sex Mascara is better.

#3 Oh La Lash by Samoa – 10$


So this is the first time I love a product from Samoa Cosmetics, in fact, I was so impressed by the formula of this mascara. It’s actually a Lebanese influencer that recommended this product and I don’t regret purchasing it. It gives amazing volume, length to your lashes and it is buildable. So, after two coats the mascara doesn’t look that clumpy.

However, to achieve the look I want, I need to apply 2 coats which sucks because it is not cheap for a drugstore mascara.

#2 Better Than Sex Mascara by Too Faced – 23$


I extremely love this mascara because it gives extreme volume and length to my lashes without making them look clumpy and the result looks more natural than when I use other mascaras. The only reason it’s not my number one favorite is because the brush is huge which makes the application harder and messier.

#1 The Colossal Big Shot Mascara by Maybelline – 9$ 


If you have been following my blog for a long a time, you know that this mascara is my ultimate favorite. It gives my lashes extreme volume and length with one coat only. Moreover, it is super black, long-lasting and doesn’t make my lashes look clumpy.

That’s it for today. I hope you enjoyed reading and if you did, don’t forget to give this post a ‘like’ and to follow my blog.

    I really want to try the L’Oreal mascara as I have heard some great reviews on it! But I agree that you cannot beat the Maybelline mascaras! x

    I’m always looking for the perfect mascara, and I haven’t found it yet. I don’t want to pay a lot of money, so I haven’t tried too faced out. Is that one really worth the money? I know it’s your #2 so you have to be satisfied with it, but does it keep the curl in the lashes all day? xo

    I usually love maybelline mascaras but lately the Paradise Extatic stole my heart! I really want to try the UD one, sounds cool xxx

    • December 6, 2017 / 9:06 pm

      i don’t think the UD one is worth it, especially if you love the L’oreal one!

        Really? Is it that natural? Because I naturally have quite long lashes but they are a bit light coloured, so the fact that you said it will make them really black made it sound really interesting 🤔😘

          Ah oki, then that’s a different story. I don’t have long lashes, but it might be a good mascara for you!

    I really want to try the Urban Decay Perversion one, I’ve heard such good things!

    • December 7, 2017 / 8:12 am

      I don’t think it’s worth the 23$ honestly. I bought it at duty free and liked it but i will not re-purchase it!
