Monday Edition: My Favorite Things

I absolutely adore Cargo TexasLash Mascara. It has an over-sized brush that gives my lashes the volume that they need. However at $20 a tube, it is not the most economical choice in mascara. Plus, my closest Sephora is a little over an hour away.

This weekend I found a more economical replacement for my favorite mascara-Neutrogena Healthy Volume Mascara. This mascara retails for around $8, but there is also a $3 off Neutrogena Make-up coupon floating around that will take the price down to around $5. I have read mixed reviews about this mascara, but personally I love it!

The positives: It makes my lashes look longer and fuller. It conditions my lashes. It doesn't smudge or flake.

The negatives: It does not make my lashes look 400% fuller as promised, but I am satisfied with the results. It does not come off with just soap and water-I have to use eye make-up remover.

The next time I am near a Sephora, I will probably pick up my favorite Cargo TexasLash Mascara, but until then I am completely satisfied with Neutrogena Healthy Volume Mascara.

Have you tried maybelline colossal volume express mascara? It is the one in the yellow tube and I have not found anything better even at sephora and it is a bargain!

I need some of that mascara, my eyelashes are so lame, they never want to look full no matter how much I kill them with mascara!

I have a sample of Bad Gal mascara - not sure which brand it is, but I like that one. I think it is a Sephora/Ulta buy though. You could always go online & if you're a member of a frequent traveler (flyer, hotel, etc) program, they usually have deals where you can order from stores & earn points for each $ you spend.

I may have to try this! I can't bear to spend $20 on mascara but, heck, if it works, it works!
