Hey ladies, I discovered a new mascara.  I’ve always favored Lancome mascara - I switched from “Definicil” to “Hypnose” (both by Lancome).  Recently I tried two new products from Cover Girl; “VolumeExact” has been out for about a year now but the other, “LashBlast,” is brand new.  They work exceptionally well - almost a well as Lancome, and are a lot less expensive.

The only drawback I’ve found so far is that the Lancome is removed very easily with hardly any rubbing or tugging at your lashes.  It’s not quite so easy or quick to remove the Cover Girl.

Incidentally, I use almond oil to remove mascara.  It’s a very fine product - it’s not slippery like mineral or baby oils are, plus it’s not bad for you, as baby oil is purported to be lately.  Almond oil is gentle on the tender skin around your eyes and works beautifully to remove the Lancome mascara, so this is still my preferred combination.  But I do recommend giving Cover Girl a try - great products; great price!  

If you’ve tried either leave a comment; I’d like to hear about your experience.

    • Lancome and Loreal are made by Loreal so it makes sense that they would be similar. I too use Lancomes difincils and LOVE them. I did try maybellines stilleto and it worked wonders on my puny lashes.
      I like almond oil too but since I wear contacts (even to bed) they would leave a residue so I use ponds (or off brand) wipes to remove my eye makeup.
