What mascara is in The DoubleTakeGirls’ Beauty Drawer?

Today is one of our favorite beauty topics: mascara! We first encountered this fabulous beauty item during our early years of ballet performances. This was before there was an actual trend in wearing fake lashes. So through the years, we have sought luscious lashes merely through a fabulous tube of mascara! One of our DTG beauty drawer secrets is that eye products are our among our favorite items to test. We love trying out all the drug store mascaras as soon as they are launched. From time to time we will also splurge on a higher end brands featured at stores like Sephora and Ulta. Today’s review will cover two items in the $6-8 range, and then a prestige brand at $18.

How do we get our lush lash look? The DTG answer is: combining two mascaras! This has worked for us for years. We know this might sound silly, but it really doesn’t cost much more since your two tubes will last longer. And if you know how to apply the combination that works best for your eyes, then you will save time from not having to pick out clumps or feverishly comb, which are often the results from using only one mascara.

L’s current combo: First step: a few coats of L’Oreal Voluminous, then Covergirl lashperfection or Bare Minerals’ Curl and Lengthen as the 2nd step.

W’s current combo: First step: Maybelline Volum’ Express One-by-One mascara (not pictured) then Bare Minerals’ Curl and Lengthen as the 2nd step.
