Three Mascaras I Can’t Stop Wearing

Three High End Mascaras I Can't Stop Wearing - Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara, Benefit Roller Lash, Bobbi Brown Smokey Eye Mascara

Normally my posts about mascaras come in the form of a ‘Mascaras on Rotation’ write upI tend to always have way too many mascaras open at a time so it’s always been the easiest way to do it but lately, I’ve been rotating the same three non-stop – when I’m onto something good I tend to stick to it.

Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara – 

My first impressions were a little iffy but since then, my love for this mascara has only grown. When I first opened up the tube the formula was a little wet for me, leading to clumpy, spidery looking lashes but now it’s dried out a bit it provides length, separation, volume and it holds a curl. Without fail, a quick wiggle of this wand through my lashes and I’m ready to go. They’ve even released a waterproof formula so you know that one went straight on my wishlist.

Benefit Cosmetics Roller Lash – 

This was another one that I wasn’t completely wowed by when I first started using it. It was good, sure, but I couldn’t understand the hype. Now I get it. Again, all it took was a little while to dry out the formula before I was onto a good thing. If I’ve made sure to remove any excess from the brush before hand, this wand can create separated lashes like no other. It holds a curl as Benefit loves to claim and although I find it’s not the best for creating length, the separation and volume is enough to win me over. If I’m after really dramatic lashes a coat of this followed by some Better Than Sex is all I need.

Bobbi Brown Smokey Eye Mascara – 

It was love at first application with this one and my love has not diminished since then. When I’m after a mascara that does a little bit of everything, this is the one I reach for. The brush is a simple, traditional shape but I find it does a better job than a lot of others I’ve tried when it comes to length, volume and curl. It’s not the most dramatic, contrary to it’s name, but I find that for perfect, day time, fluttery lashes, this is my go-to. This sample has done very well but a full size purchase must be on the cards soon.

Although I was somehow convinced that I only loved drugstore mascaras it would seem that the tables have turned – these three higher end formulas have really been working for me lately. I think it’s time to switch up my mascara draw and try a few more on the budget end…

    I’ve had the too faced mascara in my beauty cupboard for a while but I haven’t gotten around to using it yet, hopefully I like it as much as you do!

  • Better than Sex is my holy grail! I really want to try their waterproof version!

  • I bought a deluxe sample size of Too Faced Better Than Sex in December, and only just got around to opening it now and it’s all dried up! 🙁 so sad, I was excited to finally give it a go. I definitely want to try Benefit’s Roller Lash though, so many rave reviews! x

    • Aw no! That’s so disappointing that it’s dried up! 🙁 If you can get your hands on another sample, definitely give it a go!

  • I LOVE Roller Lash! Best mascara I have ever worn! Better Than Sex works well for me too but I’ve not tried any Bobbi Brown mascaras as yet. Currently using Cover Girl The Super Sizer which is a great dupe for Roller Lash FY 😉

  • I haven’t tried any of these, thanks for all the recommendations! If you’re after a great budget mascara my absolute fave is L’Oréal False Lash Wings Intenza, definitely worth a try if you haven’t already 🙂

    Roller Lash is SO GOOD! I love it so much and definitely need to get another one! I actually hated Better Than Sex when I first tried it – but now I’m actually so impressed with it! I don’t know why it suddenly decided to work for me? But I love it! Haven’t tried the Bobbi Brown one!
    I’m currently loving the Estee Lauder Sumptuous Knockout Mascara which is actually pretty damn nice! oxoxo

    • I’m surprised by how much I LOVE Roller Lash! Too Faced Better Than Sex is really wet when the tube is still new so that’s why I initially had problems with it – when it dried out a little more I fell in love!

  • I’ve been meaning to try Roller Lash for the longest time! But it is just so darn expensive. I might buy the smallest size something, but still, that price 😮

    • It is super pricey, I have a freebie sample from my last Sephora order otherwise I doubt I ever would’ve tried it out!

  • I can’t say I got on very well at all with the Better Than Sex mascara. It smudged like crazy which is really unusual for me. I LOVE Roller Lash though.
