My Favourite Brand for Mascara

My favourite brand for mascara has to be Maybelline. I've purchased and repurchased their offerings for years, and always like to try the newest edition!

The four above are the ones I currently have, and I've also had the Colossal in the past. The first three, Mega Plush, Rocket and One by One, have plastic brushes (Mega Plush is different than the other two, though, in the sense that the wand isn't as plastic. The bristles are flexible and try to imitate that of natural ones), which is a quality I avoided before these. I think it's because I tried a Miss Sporty one when plastic brushes were starting to make an appearance, and it was a terrible, clumpy mess. 

These, however, don't clump my lashes at all, and that's one of the main things I look for in a mascara. The mascara also has to darken, but that's a given. I'm not fussed if a mascara claims to curl or lengthen because I use curlers and believe the length is down to how long your lashes are to begin with. 

I normally use the normal version of the Falsies, but the waterproof one is featured here. I keep this one stashed away for when I go swimming or to a theme park etc. It's definitely waterproof! So waterproof that I have a hard time getting it off without pulling any lashes out. So, I would repurchase or try another waterproof formula from Maybelline, but not for everyday. 

Back to the Mega Plush - This is my first tube, and although I like it, I'm more likely to repurchase one of the others. It gives a feathery look and is incredibly lightweight, but it doesn't give me as much volume as I'd like. The others have more of an impact, but still manage to look natural. 

The Rocket and One by One varieties are my all time favourites, and will be the two I'm most likely to repurchase again. Until they bring out another, anyway!

Do you like Maybelline for mascaras? Or do you prefer another brand?
