One thing beauty lovers desire is long, luscious eyelashes. While this is possible with the use of eyelash extensions and false lashes, not everyone wants to go through the trouble of applying or investing in these avenues. Because there are hundreds of mascaras to choose from, it can be difficult to find a mascara that's right for you and doesn't get clumpy. Who wants her eyelashes looking like spiders?
L'Oreal Voluminous Mascara
One favorite non-clumping mascara is L'Oreal's Voluminous Mascara. Celebrity makeup artist and brow guru Brett Freedman reveals, "While I'm a huge fan of Lancome Definicils Pro, I find that L'Oreal Voluminous Mascara really packs a beauty punch. Drugstore mascaras are definitely a beauty bargain, and for gals that like to have a fresh tube more often, this is a real savings. I also love the full brush and easy-to-apply texture." Brittany, a mascara reviewer with ClumpsofMascara.com, says, "To really get the best out of this mascara, use only two coats." If you use more than two coats of any brand, you just may find yourself in clump city.
Jane Iredale's PureLash Mascara
Fresh Meds Spas of Orlando CEO Amy Brock recommends Jane Iredale's PureLash Mascara and says, "Don't wait for each application to dry if you are layering coats; that is what causes lashes to clump and stick together." This mascara is hypoallergenic, mild and conditioning. It claims to be smear-proof, flake-proof, smudge-proof, water-resistant and, according to Joseibi.com, this mascara lives up to its claims and is a "must for all mascara-loving gals."
Dior DiorShow Mascara
Dior DiorShow Mascara is a showstopping mascara that lengthens and thickens without the use of glue and falsies. Beauty lovers spoke when they shared their love and crowned this mascara a favorite in the 2010 Reader's Choice Awards from "Allure" magazine. Bring out your inner makeup diva and use color. Many mascaras, including this one, are available in a variety of colors. Maybe a pretty blue to prepare you for spring, or what about brown to match the colors of fall?
Cover Girl LashBlast Fusion Mascara
After receiving a tube of Cover Girl's LashBlast Fusion Mascara from Kelly Clarkson, celebrity makeup artist Brett Freedman hasn't looked back. He now considers this a must-have for his kit. Some makeup artists aren't afraid to use beauty tips from their clients. Beauty blogger Charu Suri, from ButterflyDiary.com, gave this mascara huge props. "LashBlast Fusion Mascara absolutely delivered on every single promise: it lifted the lashes, it coated the lashes evenly and superbly -- with zero deposits at all -- and it made my lashes look really long and somewhat fatter." Now the hard decision to make is, which non-clumping mascara will you add to your makeup bag? Why not all of them?
