It “clumps enough to add elaborate volume without leaving chunks behind (yes, clumping is necessary for volume). It also offers extension, so I don’t have to chose between volume & length. I only have to go over my eyes once over the top & once on the bottom to get a full set of glam-tastic lashes. It never flakes on my face. Even the regular (non-waterproof) seems rain & snow resistant. It washes off easily. I rarely need to wear eyeliner with it.

Byredo is synonymous with luxury and an unconventional aesthetic like no other cosmetic brand on the market. Their mascara is no exception. Whilst at first glance, it may look like something out of your veggie drawer in the fridge, it’s design and look goes way deeper than that. This funky mascara feels great in the hand and feels very natural and easy to use. The silicon brush acts more like a comb and makes clean, defined eyelashes achievable, and quickly. It reaches each and every lash on application. You can also build your coverage to create drama on your eyes and feel like a model while you do it. There is something sleek and elegant, yet with just the right amount of urban chic about the look and style of a Byredo beauty product. It truly is a little work of art. And the usability of the design of the mascara proves that form and function can go hand in hand.

My ultimate favorite mascara – Benefit Roller Lash provides a wearable but definitely noticeable lengthening, curling, and uplifting effect to your lashes! It’s perfect for everyday wear if you want to open up your eyes and look more awake, while still avoiding that spider-lash look. Roller Lash is not as expensive as some other higher-end mascaras, and unlike less expensive options, it continues to apply well and last even after a few weeks of continuous use. Plus, unlike Benefit’s They’re Real, it’s very easy to remove at night!
