What do we crave from a good tube of mascara?
Length, Volume, Intensity, Curl, Separation! We want the formula to be rich, we want it waterproof yet be able to remove with ease, we don't want it to dry out in two weeks, we want it to be able to build, we want it to boost our lashes, & we want it all in just ONE TUBE! I've yet to find a mascara that does EVERYTHING that I want it to do, I find myself layering different mascaras, one on top of another to accomplish the look that I'm going for.
I've selected 8 beauty bloggers (all blogs that I follow & enjoy reading) and asked them all the same question...
What is your favorite mascara, and why?

My favorite mascara would have to be Loreals Collagen Mascara in the darkest Black! I really love this mascara because it gives your eyelashes so much fullness and volume at the same time!

My holy grail mascara is MUFE's Smoky Lash Aqua. It achieves the magic hat-trick: length, volume and curl! The Aqua (waterproof) version helps to hold curl better, but the one downside is that it's more stubborn to remove. The wand is quite similar to L'Oreal Voluminous but the formulation is far superior, it's the blackest black mascara I've ever tried. UK availability isn't great so I always stock up when I'm near a Sephora.

My favorite mascara right now is Maybelline's Falsies Mascara! I've tried many high end mascaras and they don't work as good AND they are more expensive. This mascara really gives my lashes that extra flare. I have actually been asked twice by two guys if I was wearing false lashes (thats pretty awesome when GUYS notice my eye lashes!) I put on a couple of coats and my lashes looks fuller and longer!

I love dramatic eyelashes so my absolute favourite mascara has to be Majolica Majorca Lash Beautifying Mascara Frame Plus. It contains fibers, so your lashes are really built up in both length and volume. I like to layer it over the Majolica Majorca Lash Primer, or just another volumnizing mascara for serious volume (as much volume as my Asian lashes can produce, anyway!) Plus it's so much cheaper than high-end mascaras!

My favorite mascara would have to be the Maybelline Colossal mascara. I am in love with this mascara, i have re-purchase since it came out. Which is oddly enough because i always use different mascaras, Colossal thickens and volumizes my lashes. I love the finish look, it also works wonders on false lashes which i use frequently.

My favourite mascara has got to be MaxFactor Masterpiece Max! Bit of a tongue twister. It is a high volume & definition mascara and it does exactly that. It is subtle enough for daywear and absolutely widens your eyes. If you want to put a little more on for a night out don't worry - there will be no horrible clumps! My lashes are perfectly separated but at the same time amazingly voluminous!! I have been through many mascaras and always come back to this one! LOVE IT.

When it comes to mascara, I am all over the map haha! I just LOVE mascara. The one mascara that never fails and honestly, I will NEVER stop using is by L'Oreal Voluminous in Carbon Black. It's cheap and works amazingly on my lashes!

Mascara is a tricky thing for me. I've been blessed with naturally long and full lashes, so I rarely meet a mascara I don't like! :) However, CoverGirl Lash Blast and Maybelline Collosal are some of my favorites. Also, I got a sample size of Sephora Advanced Lash Boosting Mascara and it's really nice!
