My New Mascara Combo

I have one million mascaras (practically) yet I still find myself buying more. It's nutty and I can't explain it, but how about if I share some new ones I bought that I really like? Note that I always buy black mascara. At some point my mom probably told me I should get brown so I got black and that's still what I do to this day. My hair's not really blonde you know!

I've been hearing great things about Maybelline Full N' Soft so I picked some up at Target the other day. I'm so glad I did! What a great drugstore mascara! No clumps and it built full, soft, thick lashes just as promised.

Oh, but I didn't stop there. I love long lashes, so I added a coat of Clinique's new offering- High Lengths. Look at that cool brush! I ordered this from Sephora recently and was so excited when it arrived. The curved, fine-toothed comb really grabbed each lash and added some nice length.

I typically don't layer mascaras but I felt quite fancy doing it, and don't we all want to feel fancy?

Disclosure: I actually paid for these out of my own little Coach wallet. Promise.

I'm a real girly-girl so I have tons of makeup. No matter how much I have, I always think I need more. I always buy black too. Always, always, always. Not really sure why.

That Clinique mascara wand looks interesting! May just have to search that out when I get some $.

Sasha, I know you were a huge fan of the discontinued MaxFactor Volume Couture, have you found something that matches that? I have not and it's so frustrating.

Courtney, I think Buxom is a good contender to replace MFVC.

OK, now I'm scared! Guess what just came in my drugstore.com order last night and I'm wearing today?! Even in my die-hard commitment to Lancome Hypnose Drama...kept hearing such good things and I'm a mascara junkie like you....FULL N SOFT! NO WAY! Funny!!! I'll have to check into the Clinique....hey, is the Avon Lip Gloss out yet? Can't find in the current catalog?

Bird, Full n soft has been my mascara staple for about 5 yrs, ever since I gave up spending $25 on the Estee Lauder More than Mascara. It's really smooth and does a bit of lengthening. Brown/black is a great shade for us blondes!
