Top 2017: Battle of the Mascaras

I am VERY particular about mascaras.  I was fortunately blessed with long eyelashes, and I have a certain way that I like my eyelashes to look.  It’s just a part of me…who I am.

Today I am rounding up the top mascaras of 2017 that I have tried (key words).  I am sure there are others that I haven’t tried yet, but I am loving these mentioned in this post.  I even picked my very favorite!!! Read on to see what it is! 🙂

Marc Jacobs Velvet Noir Major Volume Mascara

First up is the Marc Jacobs’ Velvet Noir Major Volume Mascara and it is AMAZING.  It is literally one of the best out there.  It’s high-end, coming in at $26 a tube.  This is a sample that I have been using.  I already used up my large ones!  Ranks 9/10.

I really love the Stratosphere Volumizing Mascara by Lune and Aster (you can find at Blue Mercury).  It has a very thick brush which holds the product well.  It also is gluten-free, vegan, and paraben-free.  Plus, it is $20, so not as expensive as the others. Overall, 8/10!

YSL’s The Shock is an incredible mascara that packs a big punch!  It is truly black.  You only need a few coats of this.  The only thing that I have a hard time with is the fact that a lot of product collects on the brush itself when you go to apply it.  This makes it hard to get into every lash and not clump.  I just take a clean wand and brush through the lashes.  This does the trick!  It doesn’t transfer or flake either.  It’s very nice!  I give it a good 8/10.

Monsieur Big by Lancome

Coming in at #1 is the Monsieur Big mascara by Lancôme.  It deserves a clear 10/10 for a solid formula, no clumping, no flaking, easy removal, and amazing brush.  I adore this mascara for so many reasons as mentioned, but it also literally makes your eyelashes BIG!  It’s a must try if you have the opportunity.  $25 on the Lancôme site.

What are some of your favorite mascaras?  I like a formula that makes the lashes long, thick, but natural (ish).  

Wishing you all the bright fireflies,
