Product Review - Mascara, The Best among the Best

They say the flutter of a woman's lashes can take down cities!

I am sure ITnistas that you have heard, read, followed many, many Mascara reviews in the past. They must have convinced you to go and buy them as well, and most of you did. And then you were stuck with something that didn't deliver what it promised.

And what about those super fake mascara ads??!!! They wear fake lashes and promise you that ONE swipe of the mascara will transform your life forever!!! Whatever, right?!

But fear not, I set out on an adventurous journey in search of the mighty mascara, that did give me a new life beyond eyeliners and kohl pencils. It was my calling that I had to help you out to achieve this life altering event.
Drama continues...

So ladies, here's my list, in the order of least preference...Remember ALL of these mascaras are the best. But I want you to have the best among the best for your purpose and type of lashes:

1. Maybelline Hyper Curl - If you have long but not voluminous lashes. It gives you the best volume and curl. It has a curved wand which reaches the smallest of lashes. You can build on this and go up to 4 coats. This WILL instantly show a difference. Downside - you need a makeup remover to take it off.
2. Bourjois Volume Clubbing - If you have normal length and thin lashes, it gives you great volume but you have to wait for atleast 2-3 coats to see a difference. Although water proof, it doesn't stick like war paint on your lashes. I can take it off with water and my face wash.
3. Colossal Volum Express - If you have thin and short lashes, this one's for you. This mascara has been talked about a lot. It IS one of the best in the market now, but it doesn't give you the lashes you want in 1-2 coats. This is a mascara that you need to build to get the desired effects. You do see a major difference immediately. This mascara has a rounded wand that reaches every lash. Unfortunately, the same causes it to some times come on to your lid. So you have to be careful while using it. It comes off easily.
4. L'oreal Volume Million - If you have short lashes and you only want volume, this one's for you. The bristles are super short. That's what you notice first about it. The wand is bendy so be careful while putting it back in. So what does this one do. I was impressed that it caught my smallest lashes and added volume to it. It defined the tiniest ones in the inner corner of the eye. My lashes looked full, but not too long. This one comes off easily too.
5. L'oreal Double Extension - If you have short sparse lashes, then this one's for you. Easy to use. One Swipe makes a ton of difference. Use the White base first, then the Black top coat. You don't have to wait for the white to dry. If any mascara has delievered the ONE SWIPE challenge, then it's this one. You get your OMG length and your va-va-voom volume. Very easy to take off. It comes off in tubes. The way it works is that it forms tubes around your lashes. It has this lengthening serum too that claims to make your lashes grow, but I haven't put my money on that.

So what is the secret to great lashes? The secret is not using just one mascara, it's using two different types, one on top of the other. My secret is that I use Lo'real Double Extension (1 coat) and then Colossal Volum Express(2 coats) and I get lashes that can take down cities!
