Mascara seems to be a staple in anyone who wears makeup makeup bag. And come to think of it, the first makeup I ever wore was mascara. And 95% of the time, if I’m wearing any makeup whatsoever, it includes something on my lashes. But if you were ever to ask my sisters or my friends, they would tell you something along the lines of “does Anna even wear mascara?” or “she likes it really natural”. I have forever preferred a wispier, voluminous look than a thick, defined lash. I don’t care to spend more than thirty seconds applying mascara in the morning, and my lashes (sans extensions), will most likely never be the focal point of my makeup look. So that being said, I’m not hugely picky when it comes to which mascara I’m using and I rarely repurchase the same tube.

Until now. Well, I think so, anyways. Maybelline’s Mega Plush, which I had heard friends raving about, seemed like a nice idea considering it was $8 (I bought two, black and purple, because come on, eight dollars!!) and I was bored of some other high-end one’s I had had laying around. I typically go for more expensive mascara’s considering a few tries with Falsies had left me with black shadows on the tops of my cheeks (the product essentially flaked off and fell onto my face) and I didn’t want to go down that road again. The gel formula is volumizing, not too clumpy (obviously some clump is good), and super dark, and the round brush catches all my lashes and coats them to the very tips. It doesn’t feel thick on the lashes, it layers beautifully, and I still get some definition around my eyes while still looking effortless. And while I can’t wait until they come out with a waterproof rendition, Mega Plush has knocked out all the contenders in my books.
