Makeup Monday - We're Talking Mascara

Monday, March 9, 2015

Welcome to Makeup Monday on Julie's Lifestyle.  I will post about a certain type of makeup, nail polish, face or hair product etc.  It will be a fun place to come visit about anything to do with beauty.  

WEEK 35 - We're Talking Mascara

Happy Monday everyone!  I would love to talk to you about mascara today.  I recently bought MAYBELLINE VOLUM' EXPRESS Mascara and I really liked it. 

I have spent a lot of money on mascara and I've not been so happy or impressed with them.  MAYBELLINE has been around for ages and I used to use Great Lash mascara and swore by it until I bought and tried out this mascara.  

This mascara does a nice job with coating the lashes with no clumps or flaking.  I applied only one coat and liked how it gave my lashes volume and length.  You can't beat the price at $7.49 to $7.99 a bottle.  The color I used is 402 brownish black.  You can find this mascara in any drug store.

My other favorite mascara is by Clinique called Clinique High Impact Mascara.

This mascara does not smear or smudge and lasts well throughout the day.  It coats the lashes nice, leaves no clumps or flaking.  I only need one coat of this mascara and it's also easy to remove and Ophthalmologist tested.  The price is $16.50 a tube and not too expensive.  To see it at Sephora you can click here.

Do you have a favorite mascara that you like?  I'd love to know!

Thanks for stopping by and see you all next time for Makeup Monday.

Ways to Follow Julie's Lifestyle

Thanks everyone and Enjoy!



  1. Sure wish I could wear makeup like I used to when I worked, but I am so allergic to most makeup.
    Hope it's warming up your way - we had a wonderful nice weekend.
    Have a great week Julie and Bosco will enjoy his walks again.

  2. Thanks for the recommendations, Julie. I have a hard time wearing mascara; I haven't been able to find a brand that doesn't wear off halfway through the day and make me look like I have raccoon eyes! Maybe I'll try these.

  3. Thanks for the information, Julie. I must admit that I can be picky about the mascara I used. Most of the Maybelline mascara products that I have used have worked wonderfully so I will have to look into this one. Perfect timing too since I am pretty much out :)

    Happy Monday! Hugs!

  4. These are some great tips!

    Thanks for joining the Link Up this week!

  5. I have the shortest eyelashes and that volumizing mascara looks like just what I need. I like to give the tips of them an extra coat to make them look longer. :) Thanks for all the tips Julie.

  6. Julie- Do either of these "flake" during the day? That is my biggest pet peeve.

  7. Thanks for the review Julie. I am on the look out for a new mascara. The last rimmel one I bought was terrible for clumping and flaking.

  8. I have two favorites at the current time - Milani Total Cover (neon wand) and Eddie Funkhouser Quatro Mascara. I always have a tube of these unopened and waiting.

  9. Thanks for your review on these two mascaras, Julie. I'd definitely go for the Maybelline, since, like you, I had been using their Great Lash for over 20 years!!! I have very fine, short lashes, and really need a mascara that thickens and lengthens without being too liquid-y.

    Happy Monday!


  10. Hi Julie, I use this same one and love it. In fact, Maybelline is still an all time favorite. Thanks for sharing your review. I signed up for follow by email but not receiving them yet, I will try and sign up again.
    Have a nice evening and thank you for stopping by too.
    Hugs, CM

  11. Julie, like you and most other ladies here, the Maybelline in the iconic pink and green tube is a staunch favourite here and I've just bought what might be my twentieth tube of that one! This is a great review and I'll keep my eyes peeled for the others you've mentioned...thanks...Mimi xxx

  12. Both of those are good to know Julie. I'm currently testing some :)

  13. Looks like a good product! Thanks for sharing! <3

  14. The Rocket Volume mascara is my current favorite! I have tried all kinds and haven't found anything better yet!

  15. Thank you for sharing, I love mascara! Please come link up and share this over at http://www.wrightsimply.com/2015/03/oh-my-heartsie-girls-wordless-wednesday.html
    Have a wonderful weekend ahead!! xx Ashleigh @SimplyWright

  16. Hi Julie, well mascara is probably the one beauty item that frustrates me, I like you for years used Great Lash, but then came Lorelle Voluminous in Brownish/Black at about $7 and I have used it for years with the exception of using Este Lauder when I get it one of those gift deals. But I always go back to Voluminous.

    Thanks for sharing on Friday Features this week
    Hope you have a great weekend

  17. Thank you so much for sharing your makeup tips with Roses of Inspiration. I am always happy to have you link up. Hugs!

  18. I love BareMinerals Lash Domination mascara! I'm excited to read your future beauty posts:)

  19. Great to hear which mascaras work best for you. I like Blinc mascara & also Rimmel London Wonder'full mascara.

  20. I'm using the rocket at the moment, it's a great mascara for daily wear. Love Maybelline mascara's.
