Makeup Wars is back with a favorite product – mascara. I love mascara and have a (ahem) few. This picture is to show you both unused stash mascaras and in use mascaras other than drugstore. Of course having this many won’t stop me from acquiring more.
But the point of today’s Makeup Wars is to show you our favorites and I’ve chosen two that I haven’t really had a chance to review but that I love. This doesn’t negate my love for others like IT Cosmetics, Eddie Funkhouser, Milani, etc., it just adds to them. DRUM ROLL PLEASE…… today’s winners are
Bare Minerals Lash Domination and Susan Posnick Color Coated Mascara are the two that I’m totally stuck on and am loving these days. These are more like fraternal twins than identical twins. They each have great qualities. While both were sent for review initially, I’ve already repurchased the Bare Minerals during Ulta’s special and will purchase the SP when it’s had its 3 month run.
BARE MINERALS LASH DOMINATION was sent with other Bare Minerals items and it’s a winner. I hadn’t tried any mascara from Bare Minerals prior to this but I’m so happy they introduced me to Lash Domination ($18).
Lash Domination has an exclusive ProTwist180 Wand:
- Spiraled 180 degree to curve around each lash & coat from ALL angles
- Ergonomic channels load lashes for intense volume
- Powered by nourishing minerals and quinoa protein complex
This mascara is a volumizing one and it does a great job of that without the clumps you often find with volume mascaras. It comes in one color – a deep intense black – that wears beautifully the entire day. I love how the brush curves and grabs each lash no matter how short it might be.
Bare Minerals calls Lash Domination a 10 in 1 product claiming it volumizes, defines, thickens, separates, lifts, has all day wear, is mineral fortified, doesn’t clump, fights flakes and is smudge resistant. And I totally agree. I love a defining mascara the most and I always look for one that isn’t going to smudge or flake. You hit it Bare Minerals and you are a mascara war winner!!
SUSAN POSNICK COLORCOATED MASCARA is one I’d never have known about if they hadn’t sent it. Susan Posnick products just don’t get the press that other brands do which is too bad. This COLORCOATED mascara ($24) could be what changes that though because it needs to be talked about and worn by you and everyone you know.
Susan Posnick ColorCoated Mascara took the brand two years to create and get just right. It’s been obvious to me that they spent that long time wisely getting a mascara that does everything I want a mascara to do while conditioning my lashes at the same time. I find that this is much better at lengthening and definition than it is at thickening. Once I made my decision for this post I wore them both – BM on one eye and SP on the other. That really showed me the differences. Susan Posnick did a good job of volumizing but it didn’t make my lashes stick together at all. The definition and how long they looked is what set this apart.
The brush is a double twist brush that picks up all your lashes. The color is super black but it never strays. I’ve yet to have a single flake or smudge with this.
- Fortifying complex conditions and helps stimulate lash enhancement
- Unique double-twist wand for precise application and lash separation
- Water-resistant formula won’t smear or smudge
- Never flakes or clumps during application
Two wonderful mascaras that I think deserve to be awarded the title of WINNER for Makeup Wars. — Marcia
