Mascara Monday: Two Products I Love For Perfectly Defined Lashes

This past weekend I did a mini-cleanup of my makeup drawers (yes, all 7 of them) and I came across a few of my favourite mascaras that I recently finished off.  These mascaras are both pretty great and I rotated them throughout my makeup routine until they ran out. Now I have another couple (more like ten) that I am switching around this season, but these past favourites will always have a special place in my heart.

One of the most well-known mascaras out there is Benefit Cosmetics They’re Real! Mascara, and I can absolutely see why. I had a little travel size tube that I completely ran dry and I fell in love with this mascara. This mascara was my no-fail choice that I reached for so frequently. I knew that I could swipe on two coats of this and get perfectly defined long lashes that looked so good they could be mistaken for falsies. This mascara got me tons of complements and it was perfect for an everyday full fringe. I definitely fell in love with the travel size one and I don’t know what is taking me so long to buy the full size. At almost $30 it is a little steep for my student budget but I love the results so much that I might make the plunge. You can check it out here at for more info.

The second mascara that I have run dry recently is the L’Oreal Paris Telescopic Shocking Extensions mascara. This mascara has a very defining brush and offers precise lashes that are long and defined. This one only costs around $10 so it’s got a price tag that makes my wallet much happier. The brush has 200 bristles so every lash gets coated and lengthened. For a clump-free formula and affordable price tag, this mascara is great option for an everyday lash look. You can check it out here at or look for it at your local drugstore.

Both of these are great choices for long lashes that are separated and stylish. No clumps or flaky formulas to be found, these two picks are perfect for defined lashes any day of the year.


  1. Next time I buy one, it will surely be a L’Oréal mascara. I’ve read so many positive reviews up until now, that I’m questioning myself for spending so much money on far more expensive brands…
