Butterfly "Wings"

September 10, 2014

I'm sure you remember me raving about mascara, and I'm here to do it again. Because I think I'm obsessed. Today I'm sharing something that I've mentioned before, but it deserves its own post. 

To say that I like this better than the BTS might be a stretch, but then again it depends on the day and how my lashes react. Sometimes they have better days, just like my hair. Is that weird? I do, however, really like it for a drug store mascara. 

What is this close tie to my all-time favorite? The L'Oreal Voluminous Butterfly Mascara. The best part of this mascara is the unique brush shape. It flares at one end, which captures the outside lashes beautifully! It is so easy to apply because of this brush. It's awesome.




Bare lashes / 1 coat / 2 coats / 3 coats

I love how it separates my lashes. It doesn't get clumpy, and with more coats it adds pretty good volume. The only reason that I don't grab this everyday is that I didn't buy the waterproof. I haven't had any issues with it fading or running during the day, but I usually try to do a final coat with a waterproof mascara just to seal it off. 

There is a waterproof version (here), but I haven't tried it yet. Sometimes I find that the waterproof versions of mascara aren't the same as their twin non-waterproof formula, so I can't guarantee that it would provide the same results!

I would highly recommend this mascara, and right now Ulta is offering buy 1 get 1 at 50% off on this product, so get the regular and waterproof version to test out (you can always return the one you don't like)! If you don't have an Ulta near you, you can find this at any drugstore as well.
