My newest mascara trick

I've tried lots of different mascaras over time (what woman hasn't??), and I've never been overly thrilled with the results.  In the past few weeks I've tried something new, and since I'm loving it so much, I thought I'd share it here. 

I start with Lash Discovery by Maybelline...

The brush is really tiny so it gets all of the little lashes on the edges, and I feel like it gives all of my lashes a simple coat of black.  I usually do two coats of this.

After that has dried for about 30 seconds, I add one or two coats of L'Oreal Telescopic

This adds some serious length to the already coated lashes.  I have tried this alone, but it works SO much better for me with the undercoat of the Lash Discovery.  Even at the end of the day, my lashes look great.  I've never been as excited about mascara as I have been lately!!  The nice thing is they are both drugstore finds and will often go on sale for buy one get one free, so it's a cheap venture, even though you're using two kinds.

Have you tried either of these?  Do you like them?  Do you have a different favorite?  Do share!!


  1. I'll have to try that. For awhile I was using Diorshow, but I couldn't justify the expense. Now I'm not sure which one it is, but its an orange tube and I get it at Target or Costco...I have an intensive makeup routine - just kidding ;)

  2. I am loving Maybelline The Colossal Volume Express. Love the way it makes my lashes look thick and long. Have been using it for about a year and I have no complaints!

  3. I am an original Maybelline girl! The pink and green tube...just switched to waterproof for summer!

  4. I have always liked both Maybelline (the original in the pink and green tube), as well as Lancome Definicils. But I am forever reading about others, just like your post and the comments here, why, I don't know, anytime I try something different I am disappointed.

    Happy summertime to you!
