Dear Mascara – I hate/love your face
I have such a love/hate relationship with mascara. Isn’t it fun to go to the store and try on a fresh coat? It always looks so nice and then an hour later…flakes, smudge, poop.
A few years ago I found my one and only Chantecaille Faux Cils Mascara. It lasted for 6 months and quite honestly I could have held out for a refill longer (you might think that’s gross, but it’s only used on my eyes so I don’t really care). Then, on my 3rd refill, I noticed something in the formula changed. It dried out a lot sooner and even flaked.
I’ve been using Hourglasses’ Film Noir Mascara for the past year, but it’s no match for my pre-2009 CFC mascara. I’ve heard good things about Diorshow Iconic, Giorgio Armani’s Eyes to Kill Excess, and Chanel’s Inimitable Intense Mascara but maybe it’s time I Barrymore it up and hit the Drugstore for this one…
Let me know if you have any recommendations!
