I used to be sold on expensive mascara - I loved any of the items MAC sold. Then my student loans started kicking my ass and mini luxuries had to get re-prioritised.... and thus began my search for awesome cheap mascara 5 years ago.
The good Lord blessed me with many things...lush dark eyelashes were not one of them. Mine are blond...if I don't wear mascara people ask me if I am ill, so I tend to wear it all the time.
I don't like spider-leg looking lashes...or when my lashes all stick together...or when the lash product barely comes out of the tube requiring a gazillion coats. I can honestly say that I would try a cheap mascara (various brands really) and get disgusted and then buy an expensive brand.... it was very cyclical.
Then Christmas came and Tommy was in charge of my Santa stocking. He filled it to the brim with all sorts of little stuffers - including a mascara. I kindof rolled my eyes at the mascara.. it was Covergirl... not "good" stuff... but the fact he ventured into the makeup aisle at all was very sweet. Needless to say, a couple months later I found myself needing a new one and trying the one he got me.
IT WAS AMAZING!! I am totally sold on Covergirl's Lashblast Fusion....it's even better than the expensive mascaras I was once so hooked on. It's so funny that it took my hubby randomly picking up the first mascara he saw in the drugstore to be one that I like so much...after my years of searching!!
Are there any cheap products that you happen to love??
Ummm...in case anyone might be wondering - this isn't a sponsored post or anything - just wanted to share my cheap mascara thrill with my readers :-)
