So I was really trying to turn this post into a "Pook's Top Holy Grail Mascara!" but I just couldn't pick between these 2 mascaras because I honestly love them both and wear them all the time. I am going to start off with the one I bought first which is (let me just say that this is not a Maybelline only blog!lol I promise to blog about other brands I promise you) Maybelline Volum' Express Falsies Flared (retails for $7.49). I absolutely love this mascara! First off I need to say that it is very tough to judge a mascara until you have opened it and been using it for about 2 weeks or so. I actually read about this on nouveaucheap's blog and she is absolutely right, something about having the formula exposed to air ages it and just makes it better. Having said that, Falsies Flared ages wonderfully and is just perfect after about a week.
One of the things I love the most about this mascara is that it gives you amazing volume without glooping (is that even a word?) product everywhere and making a huge mess. Who wants to spend time getting their eyeshadow perfect only to put on their mascara and ruin everything? Not I! Also, Falsies Flared is extremely buildable, it looks great whether you use one coat or 4 coats, whether you're going for a my-eyelashes-only-better look or a omg-are-those-real?!? look.
My second favorite mascara is Urban Decay's Supercurl Curling Mascara ($20 for full-size tube on urbandecay.com). I got a travel-size tube with the Book of Shadows IV I bought from urbandecay.com on Black Friday. Do you believe in love at first sight? I put this mascara on and it was like fireworks, stars, and glitter exploded all over my face! wait, that sounds painful.... anyway, you get the idea! It was magical. I don't have to even curl my eyelashes when I put it on. Not only does it curl your eyelashes for you but your eyelashes will stay curled ALL DAY. This mascara is also super buildable.
