Mascara Monday

Happy Monday ladies... I wanted to start this week off with one of my staples in my makeup bag and a staple for Mondays as well.I think I can speak for most women when I say we all need mascara even if you dont wear a lot of makeup. When talking about Mascara, its pretty easy for me as I have two holy grails I have used for years and I can never find anything that comes close. Every blogger that I have followed through the years say the same and that is how I initially found these products. A lot of those same people now only wear high end products so I thought I would share the best one and a dupe(in my opinion).My two favorites are Too Faced "Better Than Sex" and L'Oreal Voluminous.They are very different in the price category but they basically do the same thing. If you are on a budget you would obviously go for the drugstore mascara. I love makeup and high end products but I also love saving money so that is why I tend to go for both of these. I usually wear L'Oreal as my go to during the work week then the better than sex for nights out or a special occasion. If I have something major going on I will usually throw some Ardell lashes on and some light mascara. 
                                           Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara at $23.00
                                           L’Oreal Voluminous Carbon Black Mascara at $8.00

The number one difference in these products are the price points. Depending on your budget this can be a deciding factor.

-Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara 
You can purchase this product at any Ulta or Sephora. This will be on the pricier side but people have been raving about this since it came out a couple of years ago. This is a fan fave of everyone and I doubt anyone will be disappointed with this. The only downside to this mascara is the clumping and you have to be very careful when applying not to get any clumps. You will also get a lot of fall out through out the day or flaking. 

-L'Oreal Voluminous Mascara 

You can get the L'Oreal Voluminous mascara at any drugstore or retailer that carries L'Oreal. I ALWAYS have this in my makeup bag. Makeup artist, celebrity's, many bloggers and vloggers rave about this. You will get the most value out of this one. I feel like L'Oreal Voluminous is a dupe for the Too Faced "Better than Sex". The downside about L'Oreal is... it has a lot of left over product on the brush. TRUST ME when I say you will need to clean off the extra residue left over on the brush. You will only need one coat with the L'Oreal product. They are not playing when they say its carbon black. It is insanely pigmented. This will also make the product last longer so you can look at it either way.

Both products have thick brushes but the Too Faced is a little more curved. They both give lengthening and volume.  I always get compliments on my lashes with both products when I take the time to properly apply the right amount. The work week is a struggle for me so sometimes I have very little on during the work days.
If you have tried both of these let me know your thoughts and if you have any other products that are just as good I would love to find something similar.Its really hard for me to go outside of these products because I love them so much.Have a great week everyone and make sure those lashes are nice and full.

  2. I have not tried the L'Oréal and most likely will not as they are not cruelty free, but I love the Too Faced Better Than Sex mascara!
