Neglected Mascaras

25 comments
This little collection of mascaras are the ones that don't find themselves in my makeup rotation. I've enjoyed each of them at different times for different reasons, but ever since purchasing the Revlon 'Grow Luscious' I really haven't found myself reaching for anything else, even my Benefit 'They're Real!" has been pushed to the side. Here are a few reasons why...

I had a love affair with The Maybelline Mega Plush even though I accidentally picked it up in brown instead of black. This was my all time favourite before Revlon's 'Grow Luscious' came into my life. This separates and coats beautifully, but does suffer in the length department, which is why it might have lost it's place in my regulars. Regardless, it is a beautiful mascara and if you already have super long lashes you will fall in love like I did.

I purchased the Maybelline The Falsies just before Mega Plush was released, so this got neglected pretty quickly. The Falsies gives me the length that Mega Plush doesn't, but it has a much wetter formula which I find myself not liking as much. I don't exactly like my mascaras dry, but when the formula glistens I usually don't enjoy it. This is so raved about, though, that I'm throwing this into my everyday makeup bag in the hopes of using it on the regular.

The Rimmel Scandal Eyes 'Flex' and 'Show Off' were gifted to me by my sister who loves long, dark, thick lashes. I naturally love all of these things too, but her formula preference is on the opposite end of the spectrum to mine. Does it make your lashes lush? Yes, but with a lot of work to prevent clumping and sticking together of the lashes. The effect is truly beautiful, but I really like my mascara to be my quickest step, so these are more for nights out where I'm dedicating a large time slot to my makeup. Both formulas are very similar, the wands seem to be the major difference and I think I prefer the Flex.

What mascaras of yours are you neglecting and why? Hopefully this gets you to think and add some forgotten products back into your rotation.

  1. I've never tried The Falsies but if it's good for lengthening then I'm certainly listening!

  2. I actually don't wear mascara too often because it's so hard to take off. (I'm just super lazy.) I've only tried "The Falsies" but it grew old really fast and became clumpy so I quickly stopped using that one. I always love Lash Blast and the plain Voluminous one.

  3. I actually love the Falsies! One of the few that actually hold a curl for me. I've definitely neglected the Clinique high impact mascara because it's a bit too natural for my liking.

  5. This is the issue with mascaras - when you've found one that's better, they just end up neglected!

  8. It really is, you just need to be careful with application or things can get a little stuck together. x

  9. It's the worst when they dry up quickly! I really want to try the Voluminous one just because I've heard so much about it, but I'm scared it might join the pile of neglected ones! x

  21. When I first got my Waterproof Maybelline Rocket Mascara, I loved it so much!! However, not that it has started to dry out, I am not loving the little flakes that are starting to form :( Maybelline's Illegal Lengths was another favorite of mine for layering to achieve longer lashes! Love your blog :)
