I have my favorite mascara that I’ve mentioned a ba-zillion times here so not many get thumbs up from me but this MAYBELLINE NEW YORK Falsies Flared by Volum’ Express Mascara ($7.77 @ drugstore.com) does. Not only does it define lashes but it gives them volume and lots of it with the Kera fibers in it. Yes, things can get clumpy if you are not used to a serious mascara, like this one, so I would say this one is not for the novice.
KATE SOMERVILLE True Lash ($35/1.7oz @ sephora.com) comes into the fold when it’s time to remove the above mascara. Part of the reason I am so loyal to … this one, is how easy it is to remove. Taking off most mascaras takes a lot of tugging and pulling in the eye area and even then, most don’t remove every speck of black but this one does. It also conditions lashes, hydrates the whole eye area with chamomile, aloe vera and a major ingredient called SymLash226 Complex that boosts keratin production, so more lashes.
