2012 Besties: My Favorite Mascara

One of those beauty products that I tend to try out throughout the year is mascara. I almost never stick to the same one. I really love to test out different one's. I usually try out maybe 5 or 6 different kinds through out the year. Of course, 2012 was no different. I tried plenty of mascara's in 2012 and the one that always stuck out to me was:

when I am looking for a mascara, I want one that's:
Going to really get in there and volumize and lengthen. Doing just one or the other isn't good enough! Of course, with the right technique's you can get any mascara to work out to some degree, but it's nice to find one that you know you don't have to work hard at to achieve a certain look.

My lashes aren't sparse. My lashes aren't thick or anything either. I would say I have pretty normal eye lashes. I find that this mascara both lengthens and volumizes my lashes and creates the illusion of them being thicker than they really are without making them look clumped together- while it is on my lashes.
I can't really say that I saw lash growth after a couple weeks of use or anything like that but if your looking for a really great mascara that will give you all of the above for the day or night, you've found it!
Also, if I curl my lashes before I add mascara, it will hold my curl well. This mascara doesn't weigh down my eye lashes at all.  

When they mention 100% of people saw enhanced lahes instantly, it makes me go "hmmm." Of course you would see an enhancement instantly. That is why we all wear mascara, right? I think they are really trying to hammer in that idea of it actually growing your lashes over time. Im sorry but I just didn't see that.
What I also really love about this mascara is the fact that it doesn't make my lashes look clumpy or spidery. If you apply several coats, it's inevitable but I never find my self needing more than 2 coats. The first coat always looks pretty. The second coat is when I start to notice those lashes I didn't even know I had being brought out and lengthened.
I would call this a creamy consistency (not a wet formula).
About the brush:
The brush on this is a modern plastic one. I think I can attribute the finish of my lashes to the wand as much as the formula. It really does have a way of grabbing even the shortest, thinest eye lashes and bringing them to a new height.

*edit / disclaimer: I have had this mascara for months and months because I was planning on reviewing it but never got around to it. The pictures you see are from a couple days ago. The mascara looks a little dry on the wand, but it's not. This is just an old bottle

Here's what it looked like on my lashes. This isn't the best picture (I took it months ago!) but you can see it really lengthens and separates my lashes. In real life, it seems like I will get even more length than that. My lashes will just touch the bottom of my brows.I wasn't even going to add this picture because it doesn't do my words any justice, in my opinion. But, a picture is worth a thousand words and I figure you may benefit more from the picture than any words I can type out.

This is the only PF Mascara I have ever tried. I am wondering if the others are just as good {or better}.
If your wanting to check this out for yourself, they sometimes have coupons stuck to the package of products. This mascara is somewhere around $10 and I paid less than $5 with a coupon and a BOGO deal.

That was for sure my favorite mascara from 2012.

I heard a lot of great reviews about this. Dying to try this out. My 2012 favorite would have to be Maybelline Falsies Volume Express. That's the only one so far that would hold my curls and stay all day.

Erica Jackson said...

oh cool! thanks for your input- i haven't tried the falsies yet. i really wanna try the loreal voluminoius one. it seems like something that would work for me.

Carly said...

I haven't tried any from PF, but I like this brush. Thanks for the Rec I will have to try this one next :)

I haven't seen much of this yet. The brush reminds me of Lashblast. Looks great on you!

Erica Jackson said...

Carly: yeah try it out (:

Arielle: yes! your right! the brush is a lot like lash blast. lash blast is one of my favorites that i totally forgot about! i would say this mascara as a whole is really similar to lash blast

Hi there! This blog post could not be written much better!
Going through this article reminds me of my previous roommate!
He always kept preaching about this. I most certainly will
forward this information to him. Fairly certain he's going to have a very good read. Thanks for sharing!
