So yes, I now have 20 tubes of mascara, plus one still in its packaging, unopened. For most of them, I have surpassed the 3 month period. But I still use them and figured, if I haven't gotten any kind of allergies, I think I'll survive! I'd like to review all of them one by one, buuuuut I think I'll just do my favourites. By favourites I mean the ones I reach for the most and getting the effect I want from them.
FYI, I *love* big, fat lashes. Mine are curled and quite long, so I'm usually not bothered so much with lengthening. I look our for the volumising aspect of the mascara. If it makes me look like I'm wearing falsies, I'm sold. On top of that, sometimes I do put on falsies!! I'm weird like that, but yeah, I love full, fat lashes.
I've always enjoyed CoverGirl mascaras, next to L'oreal. Even when it was still available in Malaysia, I used to have a tube or two. After more than 10 years being pulled out from Malaysia, I decided to purchase CoverGirl Volume Exact in Very Black when I went back to Sydney with Husband J last year. I was looking for the famous LashBlast but found this instead, and I am glad I did. Volume Exact gave me volume I so love. It dries fairly quick too. It has a rubber brush (me no like rubber brushes!), but it coats every strand of my lashes, even the tiniest ones without clumps, flakes or smudges. And it stays true black ( I look horrible in brown mascaras!!).

This next mascara buy reminded me never to turn my nose up from budget products. It proved, yet again, that the item can be dirt cheap, but works like a million-bucks. Silkygirl Lash Prism Waterproof Mascara is a pleasant surprise. I normally don't buy waterproof mascaras, but for this, I had no choice as it was the only kind. It came in 4 colours: black, brown, blue and plum. I wanted to try this and it was on sale for less than RM20. I grabbed one, used it and whoa mama! I looked like I had falsies on!! It's made out of pure awesomeness!! I love that way this mascara looks on me, and although it's waterproof, it's not a b!tch to take off (MajolicaMajorca, Shu Uemura and Miin from SaSa, I'm looking at you!!). It has the traditional brush with an hour glass shape which I don't know what it's for. The formula is good enough. Definitely a great buy!!
Big love in a tube: SilkyGirl Lash Prism Waterproof
