Ask almost any girl what they can’t leave the house without and the answer will no doubt be the following: phone, lip balm and mascara. It’s said that our eyes are the windows to our souls, so why wouldn’t we want to have lush looking lashes? We all go hunting for the right mascara, which often results in a disappointing trial and error and a dint in the finances. So, here we have compiled our favourite products to save you time and money.
Beauty Editor Chantelle Moore’s Pick: Maybelline Full ‘N Soft Mascara, $14.95
“At just $14.95, this mascara fits my budget, and just because it’s cheap, doesn’t mean it’s nasty. It adds volume to lashes while lengthening and curling them, without creating that hideous shape that should remain with the six-legged variety creeping outside your humid Queensland door.” – Chantelle
Sound too good to be true? It’s definitely not. We can assure you that this beauty editor has tried so many mascaras in all price ranges and keeps returning to this product as a go-to.
Chantecaille Faux Cils Longest Lash Mascara, $94
This mascara elongates the lashes making them look full and curly. The formula has an 80% growth serum to help your natural lashes grow. It also contains rose oil, so it never dries out (meaning lush and clump-free wear).
Christian Diorshow Black Out, $52
Adored by many (especially the Sassy team), this cult product gives you extra long, black and thick false-like looking lashes. The applicator separates the lashes perfectly so you don’t have to worry about your lashes sticking together.
Christian Diorshow Iconic Overcurl, $52
Another popular choice, this mascara gives lashes an amazing thickness while remaining visibly soft and natural to touch. It can also be removed easily, with no need to scrub your eyes.
Kevyn Aucoin The Volume Mascara in Rich Pitch Black, $38
Living up to its name, this mascara is the ultimate in creating maximum volume. It amplifies your eyelashes individually, really making your eyes pop. Its removal is one of the best things about it – when you’re ready to take it off, the mascara easily slides off the lashes without smudging across your face. No panda eyes here, girls!
