Sometimes, being a sucker for supercute packaging pays off. I finally caved to the pretty pink tube and girly font on Prestige My Biggest Lashes mascara ($6), and the product inside was every bit as gorgeous as the case.
Part of the reason this mascara is such a shining star is because of the big, fat wand with densely-packed bristles and a tapered tip. The wand coats each and every lash with inky black color, and simultaneously fattens them up and makes them look miles long.
- Volumize like a madman
- Lengthen and visually stretch my lashes
- Tint my lashes an inky black color
- Hold a curl
- Have a killer formula that stays thick and semi-dry in the tube (an excellent alternative to too-thin, wet formulas)
- Remove easily and completely with eye makeup remover and a cotton ball
- Give me spiderlashes
My all-time favorite mascara is Giorgio Armani Eyes To Kill; and while this doesn’t come to close to that, this is just $6, while the Armani option is $28. Considering the dramatic difference in price, the lush lash result is comparable…and I’ll happily swipe this on for big, bold, beautiful lashes.
