Beauty Buff Confessions: Manic for Mascara


Hi! I’m Val, and I’m a mascara hoarder.

Yup, you read that right! I have a serious addiction when it comes to bringing out the best in my lashes with tubes of the stuff covering my vanity. From volumizing, to lengthening, to curling, and every other option in between, if there’s a mascara to mimic the look and feel of falsies, I’m there. Instead of just the regular swipe-and-go, I’ve begun layering different formulas for the lushest lashes. I’ve even filled in my brows with a waterproof version to avoid makeup meltdown during this horrible heat wave (and it works!). With a slew of formulas flooding the market lately, here are just a few of my faves that I’m mixing up at the moment:

Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara, available at for $23
L’Oreal Paris Telescopic Shocking Extensions Mascara, available at for $8.49
