it would seem that my baby daughter already has me beat in the eyelash department. she was blessed with her father’s insanely full fan of fringe, the lucky little duck, and i’m sitting over here sparsely lashed and pouting about it.
awhile back i had teased a big mascara round up because i had so many mascaras sitting on the glossarie vanity and i just knew that there were winners among them. i had plans to share the best everyday mascara, the best one for volume, the best one for sensitive eyes, the best one for length, and so on. however, as i tested them one by one, one by one they disappointed me. the clear winner from the massive mountain of mascara’s was avon big & daring. it blew all of the others away.
the sizable tube holds a behemoth brush that delivers lush, plush lashes. the brush itself takes on a lot of product and may take some getting used to, but i can get the look and separation that i like without bringing a lash brush into the equation. you get buildable volume and length that is insane and the staying power is other worldly. no flaking and no smudging, although i will warn that it borders on waterproof. i have found that you can still get it off with your regular cleanser and some gentle determination. this one seems to have no trouble breaking it down. (i’ll do anything to avoid eye makeup remover.)
if you’re in the market for lashes that are nice and plump for less than $10, call your local avon lady (or scoop it up online). i mean, i don’t know about you, i’m just trying to keep up with my five month old…
