Believe it or not but up to a couple of years ago I rarely ever used mascara - I know! I was much more of an eyeliner girl, I would do my signature winged eyeliner and thought that was enough for my eyes. I have pretty long dark eyelashes anyway so not wearing mascara wasn't really a big deal, plus it also made my eyelashes pretty strong from being mascara-free for so long. But oh how times have changed. mascara is now one of the things that is crucial for even the simplest of makeup looks - concealer, brows, mascara - that's all I need.

I have tried out alot of mascaras and like everyone I am very picky with what I want. I am all about length and volume, despite having naturally long eyelashes I always want them to be longer. The sign of a good mascara? Having someone ask you if you're wearing false lashes - that's when you know you're onto a winner.

Recently I've been rotating between two mascaras that definitely have the m0llylouise stamp of approval, coincidentally one is budget and one is a bit more expensive so no matter your budget you can get a seriously amazing mascara. The first is the Maybelline Lash Sensational, hands down the best drugstore mascara I have used. 3 tubes of the stuff later and I am still yet to find a drugstore mascara that does the job better. This makes my eyelashes super long and gives them just the right amount of volume, making them look full and thick without being clumpy at all. It has a way of catching every single eyelash, revealing some you can barely see and makes your lashes look, well - sensational. 

Then we have the Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara, I got this in a duo from Sephora and when I first used it I completely wrote it off. I almost wrote a post about how I didn't like it and how it didn't live up to the hype. I will say that the brush is pretty big which makes doing the inner eyelashes a bit tricky but I have come to overlook that. This is actually a really good mascara and really it is pretty similar to the Lash Sensational in the way it makes your lashes look. It lengthens and volumizes the lashes making them look almost fake. I think one of the reasons I didn't like this at first is that it has bristles rather than being plastic which is normally something I don't like in a mascara, this may be the product to change my mascara-buying ways.

What are your current favourite mascaras?
