Ok, this took me a week to put together. I wore a different mascara each day. I wore no other makeup. Please excuse my brows; I didn't want to have any other makeup on to distract from my experiment. Also, I just used my point and shoot camera so the pictures aren't the best, but they get the job done.
I used 2 drugstore mascaras and 2 prestige mascara's. But I only used two brands, L'Oreal and benefit. Here are the mascaras I used (click the name to be taken to site:
L'Oreal false lashes
L'Oreal Power Volume Collagen
benefit BADgal lash
benefit they're real!
Ok, are you ready for the matching game?
Here is a picture of my eye au naturale; all I did was wash my face (in retrospect I should have also plucked and cleaned up my brows, oh well, I'm just keepin' it real).
Alright, let's look at the 4 pictures of my eye again and I'll give you the answers, which may surprise you.
Left: L'Oreal Power Volume Collagen
Right: benefit they're Real!
Left: benefit BADgal lash
Right: L'Oreal false lashes
My everyday mascara is the BADgal lash, which is the bottom left.
My least favorite mascara is L'Oreal false lash, the bottom right.
My favorite now that I'm looking at all the pictures grouped together is the L'Oreal Power Volume Collagen, top left.
The benefit they're Real! is ok, but not as full as the Collagen Volume. Plus, I don't like the feel of the benefit they're Real!; my lashes felt brittle and were long like spider legs, but had enough volume to cover that.
The Power Volume Collagen leaves my lashes some what soft, so they don't feel like they will snap off.
