Friday Faves: Mascara Madness


Happy Friday love bugs!

Tomorrow is one of my favorite days of the year…. Mascara Madness at Nordstrom! Ahh!! Do you know what this means?! Buy 2 get 1 free mascara!!! Yes you read that right, you get a full price-full size tube of mascara FO FREE when you buy 2! Yippee!! If you’re a beauty guru you know that cosmetics NEVER I mean NEVER go on sale sooo this is an amazing deal!

So in honor of this amazing day I rounded up 5 of the best mascaras that I’ve used for years and my ultimate FAVE so you’re prepared to make the best decision tomorrow! 😉 As someone who doesn’t have many lashes or long ones either I always go for volume mascara to fill out what I already have and it’s a bonus if they look longer too! I only use black/extra black/noir etc. just so you know!


Diorshow Blackout: This is a great date night mascara. It provides volume and an intense smoky eye. Sadly it didn’t react well with my concealer so I got some black eyes during the day, yikes! This is a great supplemental mascara to use when you’re going out though.

YSL Babydoll: This is one of the most popular mascaras with the ladies who work at Nordys and with our clients. It says it right there in the name, this mascara will give you baby-doll like lashes. You know you were jealous of your dolls lashes when you were little don’t leave me hanging! I recommend this all the time and highly encourage you to add it to your 3!

Chanel Le Volume: This is hands down my favorite mascara of all time and since I’ve been wearing mascara for like 20 years take my word for it, I’ve tried a tonnnnn! It lengthens and volumizes and doesn’t flake or fade or smear on my face. It shouldn’t be surprising that Chanel would make the best mascara everrr! Right?!

YSL Shocking: I wore this mascara for a couple of years before I found the Chanel and I love it. The only downside is it flaked on my face a lot after the first month or so. But the volume and length it gives your lashes is so fab. So if you don’t mind having to re-buy your mascara more often than others try this one! The results are great. And side note-the best mascara doesn’t last as long, that’s how you know it’s good. Shocking (see what I did there) but true.

Bobbi Brown Everything: This is a great everyday mascara. I like keeping it in my car for backup. It’s build-able (not sure if that’s a word) and gives you a good amount of length and volume for your day-to-day make-up looks. I do get the occasional smear out black eye and I think it’s just because my concealer is hydrating. If you like more of natural but enhanced make-up look this is the mascara for you.

If you have a mascara that you’re totally obsessed with I want to hear it! I would bet money that it can’t beat these 5! 😉 Make sure to head to your local Nordys or hope right online tomorrow and get those mascaras! You’ll thanks me later, I promise! You can also ALWAYS ask for samples of some if you want to try a couple and only order 1 now. That’s a good way to decide for next time.

Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful Friday and weekend! We’re going to be spending our time packing boxes and moving some stuff into the garage and shopping for furniture! Ah! The fun and crazy begins! PS- if you haven’t seen this new ToysRUs commercial it’s so sweet and will give you lots of warm fuzzies! 🙂

November 6: Today (and everyday) I’m so thankful for a hard-working hubby who would literally do ANYTHING to make sure that I’m happy. 🙂

    This is perfect timing, my tube is so low! Thanks for the recommendations! Also did you know if you add a drop of lavender essential oil into the tube it helps grow and strengthen your lashes?! You should give it a try!
