Product Review: Bare Minerals Flawless Definition Volumizing Mascara

Bare Minerals just gained a new customer! My best friend worked for Bare Minerals years ago and gave me a bunch of loose eyeshadow samples to use in my makeup kit on my clients. I never bought anything from the line myself, but I decided to go out on a whim and give their Flawless Definition Volumizing Mascara a shot. 

When purchasing a mascara I look for three things: volume, length, and pigment (extra extra black, but something that doesn’t smear under my eye or on my lid). I like to have the look of wearing falsies, but it’s really all mascara baby ;) 

So here’s the tea. On the picture below, I applied about three coats of mascara on my left eye and nothing on my right eye. The last photo underneath is the mascara applied to both lashes, top and bottom. Crazy right?!

My lashes are naturally pretty long, but this mascara REALLY brought them to life! I like that it was easy to layer coat after coat without it flaking into my eye throughout the day, and it’s easy to remove with a makeup wipe. As you can see, the brush is definitely made for volume! I am very happy with the results! 

Available in black and brown at Sephora stores for $18.

4 Quick Mascara Tips

Tip #1

Never, ever pump the wand - this adds air to the mascara container, which will only make your mascara dry out faster.

Tip #2

Use less mascara on lower lashes than on top lashes. Or skip the mascara on lower lashes for a more casual look.

Tip #3

If your mascara smells funny or is more than six months old, it’s time to throw it out.

Tip #4

After you’ve coated lashes with mascara, add just one more layer to the outer corners. The extra coat will make your lashes look especially long and make your eyes appear farther apart.

My TOP 3 Mascara Favs!

Here are some of my top mascara favorites at the moment!

TIP: **I always buy the “very black" or "darkest black" mascaras to get the most intense look! You can layer on coats as well!

L’Oreal Voluminous Million Lashes Mascara: $9
-This mascara makes my lashes look SUPER long!
-Gripe: After a while it was getting a little flaky & falling into my eye…could be because it was getting old.

Smashbox Bionic Mascara: $20
-This mascara gives you the most natural effect. It’s not too intense so perfect for everyday.

BADgal Lash Mascara: $20
-My lashes look really full and luscious…not to mention it brought out my inner bad girl ;)
