Mascara: One That Stays on My Eyelashes

At the end of a day do you end up with mascara everywhere but on your eyelashes? I do. I have yet to find a mascara that stays on my eyelashes; the darned stuff always migrates to the skin above and below my eyes, and looking like a raccoon isn’t my best look. But hope springs eternal in my heart. Two mascaras, at two different price points, mentioned in the February 2013 issue of Allure magazine sound like they might actually stay on my eyelashes where they belong.

quote from Feb 2013 Allure magazineThe first, Trish McEvoy High Volume mascara, is a higher price point and comes recommended by Marla Beck, co-founder of, a leading luxury beauty retailer that offers the best cosmetics, skin care, makeup, perfume, hair, and bath & body products. Ms. Beck says, “It never smudges…”

The second, Revlon ColorStay Overtime Lengthening mascara, is a lower price pint and comes recommended by Catherine Q. O’Neill, assistant editor at Allure magazine. Ms. O’Neill says, “…You’ll need a good eye-makeup remover.” That tells me the mascara should stay put, no?

Have you worn either? Did it stay on your eyelashes or migrate to your skin?

    I’ve tried everything from ridiculously expensive to crazy cheap. The only one that really works for me consistently is Maybelline’s Great Lash. I use waterproof in the summer and washable in the winter and have no issues. I also like Smashbox’s Hyperlash, but since it’s about the same for me as the Great Lash, I save my money.
