Review: Buxom Lash

Last month, I mentioned receiving some Sephora goodies from two friends. I’ve been able to try out the Buxom mascara that came in the Beach Bound kit and LOVE it!

Above is a picture of myself with no mascara which looks kind of dull! Next to it, is the mascara that can turn my lashes into long, luscious, almost false lashes!

What I love:

  • Length it provides
  • Great for volume
  • Amazing brush
  • True to it’s name, Blackest Black
  • You can get this trial size version with a lip gloss for $12 at Sephora!

What I didn’t like:

  • Not much length with one coat
  • Need to really thoroughly coat for the product to stick to lashes
  • Full size price ($19)

Above is two pictures with the difference between coats! I must say that I love the way my lashes look with the two coats so I usually stick to two coats.

All in all, I really like the idea that Sephora has with letting you buy this mascara (trial size) with a lip gloss for $12! Therefore, if you are on the hunt for a good mascara, I would definitely pick up the Beach Bound set from Sephora!

Let me know if you try this mascara!

Current Mascara Favorites

As requested by my old roomie Natalia, here are my two current favorite mascaras!

I have a soft spot in my heart for Maybelline mascaras just because they have been in the game for so long and still manage to produce one of the best mascaras! In the sequence of pictures you can see what I look like with no mascara up to two coats. With mascara in general, I usually apply 2 coats just because I like the length and volume. Great thing about this mascara is that you can find it at most drugstores and for a reasonable price too (usually $7 or less)!

I was recently lucky to get a sample from my cousin on her recent trip to the Chanel counter. I gave this try and I fell in love! The brush is smaller so it give you a little more precision when it comes to getting in between the lashes. This one also is quick to make a difference even with one quote as you can see in the picture. I don’t think I will be purchasing the full size because I can’t justify spending $30 on a mascara but if you can afford it, then try it because it works wonders!

Final Thoughts:

These two mascaras are my current favorites but with my current budget I would definitely stick to the Colossal because it does a really good job! Like I said, the Chanel mascara gives a dramatic effect with just one coat, while the Colossal takes two coats to really expand the lashes. If you can spare some time doing two coats then give Colossal a try! You won’t be disappointment. However, I do find myself wishing I was able to afford the Chanel, but one day I’m sure I will. 🙂

Hope you all enjoyed this!

What is your favorite mascara?
