Best Budget Beauty Mascaras

Budget Beauty Mascara Try On Haul | The Beauty Look Book

Today I’m excited to share a budget beauty roundup for the new year! A few of my holy grail products are from L’Oreal and long-time readers know the L’Oreal Lash Paradise Mascara and Primer have been my go-to’s since the day they launched. It was love at first swipe and based on some of your feedback I decided to give a few other formulas a try. I’ve partnered with Walmart to give you a closer look at some new favorites! Read on to see how they held up on my super straight lashes.

Best Budget Beauty Mascara for Straight Lashes

L’Oreal Voluminous Lash Paradise Primer and Waterproof Mascara

L'Oreal Voluminous Lash Paradise Primer and Mascara

First another look at my favorites the L’Oreal Voluminous Lash Paradise Primer and Waterproof Mascara. The primer has a light pink tint which I find helpful so you can actually see that you’ve coated your lashes evenly. I apply the mascara on top when the primer is still wet for the best results. This has been the best formula for my straight lashes. It holds the curl and does not smudge while adding volume and length. It does take a good remover to take off at the end of the day but I don’t mind the extra work if it means I don’t have racoon eyes by afternoon!

L’Oreal Voluminous Original Mascara

L'Oreal Voluminous Original Mascara and Primer

The L’Oreal Voluminous Original Mascara has been rated one of the best consistently among magazines and I tried it many years ago and couldn’t remember what I thought so I decided to give it another try. I really like the volume it gives and it did not smudge on me. I think it’s a good everyday no-fuss kind of mascara. I prefer the other formulas I tried for holding the curl but if you don’t have issues like me I do think this is a good one to try out. (I’m going to try the waterproof version of this next.)

L’Oreal Telescopic Lengthening Mascara

L'Oreal Telescopic Mascara Review

There are a few formulas of the L’Oreal Telescopic Lengthening Mascara and I tried both the Regular formula (gold tube) and Waterproof formula (blue tube). This has a super skinny rubberized wand with a four sides. The flat sides allow you to load product onto the lashes while the comb/teeth separate and lengthen product. This is the best lengthening formula I’ve tried. I was impressed that both formulas did not smudge and held the curl. If you want more volume you can layer this one with 2 coats (or layer another formula on top). But if you want length this is a great one. I can also use this on my bottom lashes without getting product on my skin. I prefer the regular formula since it’s easier to take off at the end of the day. Since it doesn’t smudge on me I give it a huge thumbs up! It held up during a sweaty workout too.

L'Oreal Telescopic Mascara Review

L’Oreal Air Volume Mega Mascara

L'Oreal Air Volume Mascara

The L’Oreal Air Volume Mega Mascara has a chubby bristle brush and gives mega volume with a few coats. I like that it’s not clumpy but coats the lashes with an even semi-thick layer of product to add serious volume. It feels weightless like the name implies so it’s not heavy at all. You will need to give the bottle a couple pumps to get it going.

Maybelline Lash Sensational Sky High Mascara

Maybelline Sky High Mascara

My new holy grail is the Maybelline Lash Sensational Sky High Mascara. I tried the regular washable version and it has rubberized applicator. This coats the lashes evenly, adds volume in a natural way, applies smoothly without clumping. I just ordered the Waterproof version to try in the next week to compare, but I love the regular formula. It holds the curl, doesn’t smudge, adds length and volume.

Maybelline Sky High Mascara

Budget Beauty Mascara Haul | The Beauty Look Book

My top two favorites out of the new ones I tried are the L’Oreal Telescopic and Maybelline Sky High. I still really love the L’Oreal Lash Paradise but sometimes it’s nice to have other options to rotate with. I’m even more thrilled to find non-waterproof formulas too that don’t smudge so taking it off at night is easier! I feel lucky I haven’t had any recent fails with mascara testing. I will be adding more to my try-on list so if you have any suggestions let me know!

New Gucci Mascara L’Obscur

March 26, 2020

Gucci Beauty Mascara L'Obscur

I’m excited to share a look at the latest from Gucci Beauty with you! They recently started to revamp their entire makeup line and I was able to try their new Mascara L’Obscur available now online at Sephora. I’m partnering with them to share a review with you and after putting it to the test I am really pleased to report that I’ve found a winner. The mascara is a nice way to add luxury to your beauty routine.

The Gucci Mascara is currently available in one shade called Eve Black. It’s a rich deep color that defines and volumizes the lashes beautifully. Packaging is super chic with pink and gold tones which makes it a joy to use! The mascara comes with a rubberized flexible applicator that coats each lash perfectly. The small tip at the end makes it possible to apply product to the corners and bottom of the eyes. I was pleasantly surprised to find it was easy to build, adheres well to my lashes and adds volume and definition. There’s no clumping or smudging with this one which is a huge plus. Even though this isn’t a waterproof formula I found it stayed put and lasted all day on my lashes.

Gucci Beauty Mascara L'Obscur + Sheer Lipstick in The Painted Veil

Gucci Beauty Mascara and Sheer Lipstick The Painted Veil Makeup Look

It gives a clean polished defined look to the eyes. You can build and layer for more drama but I would say this is a really nice everyday kind of mascara. I will definitely repurchase in the future.

A closer look below, also wearing the Rouge à Lèvres Voile Sheer Lipstick in The Painted Veil which I hauled recently and love! It’s a smooth sheer rose and now I want to try the other formulas too!

Chanel Eye Collection – New Stretch Mascara, Liquid Liner + Brow Duos

March 23, 2020

Chanel Eye Collection Review

Chanel launched new products for the eyes and today I have a Chanel Eye Collection review. There are three new products including:

La Palette Sourcils Brow Wax/Powder Duos

Chanel La Palette Sourcils Brow Wax Powder Duo

There are three La Palette Sourcils Brow Wax/Powder Duos in Light, Medium and Dark. These come with a tinted wax on one side and a powder on the other. The Brow Duos are cased in a compact with four mini tools including a tweezer, spoolie, angled brush and soft small sponge applicator. I tried Medium which is a neutral medium brown color. The wax is soft and easy to apply with the angled brush. It’s been a long time since I’ve tried a wax and this had enough color to wear alone. It filled in my brows and held them in place. The powder is interesting to me. It’s a stiff but pigmented powder. It’s more pigmented than the older brow duos. I haven’t tried a small detail applicator before – most of my brow brushes are angled. The small applicator made it easy to apply in soft strokes although since the handles are so small it took a bit of work to hold. The pros for the applicators are they are compact and easy to travel with. They are usable and well made although full size brushes and tools are easier to hold and use for me.

Lasting power is very good. I didn’t experience any fading or smudging. The brows stayed put all day long!

Le Liner de Chanel Liquid Liner

Chanel Le Liner de Chanel Review

Out of the three items in this launch I found the Le Liner de Chanel Liquid Liners to be the most exciting to me! They launched some of the most beautiful shimmers I’ve ever seen! These dry down to a semi-matte finish although the shimmers still have a slightly wet look because of the shimmer. The brush is well designed to apply in one stroke or a feathering motion. I found these took a few seconds to dry depending on how thick a line you draw on. Formula is thin but smooth and very pigmented. Once it sets it does not budge. As one who struggles with pencil liners during the summer months I was really excited to see a brown and plum matte – I think they’ll be excellent for the warm humid months.

Le Volume Stretch de Chanel Mascara

Chanel Le Volume Stretch de Chanel Mascara

Last is a look at the Le Volume Stretch de Chanel Mascara. This comes in one color and has a rubber twisted brush. I think this is a decent formula to lengthen and define the lashes. The brush did take a bit of practice for me to get used to because of the angles but it’s not impossible to use. It miraculously did not smudge even though it didn’t really hold the curl. I like it a lot but it’s not my favorite. I still think the classic Le Volume de Chanel is the best for me (or the waterproof version). It was easy to remove since it’s not a waterproof formula. Since it did not smudge on me I give it a thumbs up.

Just for fun my little ragdoll buddy keeping me company. He doesn’t like to take photos lol! He’s 7 years old now and I cannot believe it.

Chanel Eye Makeup + Kitty

Chanel Eye Collection Review

Overall a solid line of eye makeup staples. I think the liquid liners are special because of the color selection. I really like the brow duo because of the wax and compact but don’t think it’s essential. The verdict is still out on the mascara because I think it’s really good but I think there are better options.

You can find the Chanel Eye Collection out now, available at Chanel.com and all Chanel retailers.

P.S. Some of the Les Beiges items already popped up on the website and I ordered the two Les Beiges Highlighting Fluids. Also as of today (Tuesday) the Le Blanc Rosy Light Drops just restocked online! (Rosy Light Drops review here in case you missed it).

Pat McGrath Mothership VII Divine Rose

March 19, 2020

Pat McGrath Mothership Divine Rose Eyeshadow

The Pat McGrath Mothership VII Divine Rose Eyeshadow Palette ($125) has returned and I am so excited to share my review and swatches today. This originally launched last year in limited quantities. It’s made a few restock appearances and has always sold out online. I managed to order this during one of the previous restocks and could not be more thrilled. I really hope they will consider making this permanent! It’s available online at Pat McGrath. UPDATE: Also now available at Sephora as of April 17th!

Pat McGrath Mothership Divine Rose Eyeshadow

The Mothership VII Divine Rose Palette has a mix of mattes, shimmers, iridescent shades and one glitter. The pigment is excellent on all the colors with an easy to blend formula. The looks are endless with this one and I think it has a great combination of neutrals, rose tones and more edgy shimmers.

Pat McGrath Mothership Divine Rose Eyeshadow Palette

Colors include a mix of mainly new colors with three relaunch colors. Skinshow Nude is also in the Mothership Subliminal Palette, Rose Dusk is also in the Mothership Sublime, Astral Solstice is also in the Mothership Midnight Sun.

  • Skinshow Nude is a soft shimmery champagne
  • Velouria is a matte dusty mauve (pulls darker on the skin than what I see in the pan)
  • Sable Bronze is a shimmery bronze (love this one)
  • Refined Gold 002 is an iridescent gold
  • Iridescent Pink 003 is a duo-chrome white pink that flashes a bit of lavender and cooler tone pink
  • Xtreme Mahogany is a matte rich warm brown
  • Love Lace is a shimmery taupe with silver flecks
  • Rose Dusk is a shimmery soft muted rose plum
  • VR Rose Venus is a duo-chrome orange pink with gold shimmer, the mix makes it look more peachy on my skin rather than orange
  • Astral Solstice is a chunky ivory glitter that has a super wet look effect

Divine Rose Palette

Pat McGrath Mothership Divine Rose Eyeshadow Palette

Lasting power was excellent for me with the combinations I tried. There was some fallout with application as some of the shadows are super soft but it was easy to clean up afterwards. Once on the eyes they stayed put and lasted all day for me. The only color I wasn’t too crazy about is the Astral Solstice because it’s a glitter. Application is ok if applied in a patting motion on the eyes, with a brush the sparkles ended up all over my face.

Overall though I give this palette a solid A for colors, quality and texture. Definitely worth the splurge for me! I think the rose tones are very wearable and have enough of a muted/neutral undertone that it doesn’t give me a pink-eye look. I keep staring at the rose pink box though thinking how awesome it would be to have the colors on the box in gloss, lipstick or blush shades!

You can find the Pat McGrath Mothership VII Divine Rose palette online at Pat McGrath and at Sephora.

New Tom Ford Eye Color Quads

February 17, 2020

Tom Ford beauty new eyeshadow quads

I’m back with a Tom Ford Beauty post! By popular request I have a review and swatches of all five new Tom Ford Eye Color Quads in Arabesque, De La Creme, Mink Mirage, Sous Le Sable and Noir Fume ($88 each for .31/9 g). As a long-time Tom Ford Beauty lover I could not have been more excited about new palettes, especially since most of the new ones are neutrals! Unfortunately most of these are strong misses for me and not as stellar as the other quads in terms of pigment and color payoff. Still I think there are some nice wearable options good for everyday wear.

Top Row: De La Creme, Arabesque, Noir Fume
Bottom Row: Sous le Sable, Mink Mirage

Tom Ford Eyeshadow Quads De La Creme, Arabesque, Noir Fume, Sous le Sable, Mink Mirage

More thoughts on each palette below, ranked from best to worst based on my testing experience.

Mink Mirage

Tom Ford Eyeshadow Quad Mink Mirage review

Tom Ford Eyeshadow Quad Mink Mirage swatches

Mink Mirage is the best palette pigment-wise and it has all matte colors. I believe it’s replacing Cocoa Mirage which had some of the most boring colors ever but had amazing pigment and actually looked a lot better on the eyes than in the pan. Mink Mirage has a matte cream, a soft matte brown, a medium brown and smokey black. The powders in this one are easy to blend and perform flawlessly for a nice smokey neutral eye. It’s easy to wear for any occasion and quite versatile to take from day to night.

Wearing:

  • Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer in Sand
  • MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Natural
  • Charlotte Tilbury Highlighter Wand in Peachgasm
  • Charlotte Tilbury Matte Revolution in Pillow Talk
  • Charlotte Tilbury Lip Collagen in Rosy Plump
  • Tom Ford Eye Color Quad in Mink Mirage

_____________

Noir Fume

Tom Ford Eyeshadow Quad Noir Fume Swatches

Noir Fume is the next best one for a soft smokey taupe eye look. It doesn’t swatch the best on the arm but on the eyes it layers beautifully for an effortless smokey eye. There’s a soft sheer ivory which smooth and evens out the lids. Other colors include a sheer golden brown that almost has slight olive tones, a shimmery taupe and a cool deep taupe grey brown matte.

_____________

De La Creme

Tom Ford Eyeshadow Quad De La Creme

Tom Ford Eyeshadow Quad De La Creme swatches

De La Creme has the prettiest color scheme out of all the new palettes in my opinion but colors don’t show up on my medium tan skin as well as I had hoped. If you’re light or fair I think it will show up better. It has a perfect warm champagne peach shimmer, a warm copper, a warm soft matte brown and a medium warm matte brown. If I layer heavily on top of a creamy emollient cream base color adheres better on my skin – but I have to pack/pat it on. Any blending causes the colors to sheer out and almost disappear onto the same soft brown wash. I wish this had the same texture as the Nude Dip/Honeymoon quads because I think the color would show up better on the skin.

_____________

Sous le Sable

Tom Ford Eyeshadow Quad Sous Le Sable

Tom Ford Eyeshadow Quad Sous Le Sable swatches

Sous le Sable also has such a gorgeous color palette and it swatches beautifully on my arm, but on my eyes, it disappears into my skin and pigment is barely noticeable. I have to pack on the colors with a heavy hand to see any distinction between the bottom mattes. The shimmery rose is so SO pretty but doesn’t show up on my medium skin. The pale matte rose has decent pigment but the other three didn’t perform as I had hoped. This made my heart sink – the colors are what I had hoped Charlotte Tilbury Pillow Talk would look like (which gives me a horrible pink eye look). Tom Ford’s Sous le Sable has more brown undertones making the color scheme better – I just wish the colors would actually show up on my lids.

_____________

Arabesque

Tom Ford Eyeshadow Quad Arabesque

Tom Ford Eyeshadow Quad Arabesque swatches

Arabesque is the worst of the five. I’m a huge fan of the glitter palettes because I think they make great toppers. I applied these in a patting motion on the lids and there is barely any color. Just sparkle in which case I feel the Golden Peach Cream Eye Duo or even the Golden Mink Quad are much better.

_____________

Tom Ford Eye Color Quads, New Colors Review

Out of all five the only two I truly feel are worth the splurge are Mink Mirage and Noir Fume. The other three are definitely not worth the $88 price tag and are huge disappointments compared to other Tom Ford Quads I’ve tried.

I personally think the color scheme of the new launches are truly beautiful, but that’s where it ends for me. Pigment and color payoff are simply not there which is surprising and disappointing to me considering Tom Ford usually launches high quality products.

Have you tried any of the new quads? What did you think? Did they end up working for you or did you find them patchy/sheer? I bought mine from Nordstrom and Sephora. They’re also available at all Tom Ford Beauty counters now.

Pat McGrath Mothership VI Midnight Sun Eyeshadow Palette

October 1, 2019

Pat McGrath Labs Mothership VI Midnight Sun

Pat McGrath Labs launched a eyeshadow palette called Mothership VI Midnight Sun ($125 for 10 shades, 1.32 g each eyeshadow) and it’s glorious! True to Pat McGrath’s style this palette has a mix of bold and edgy colors with a unique combination of colors. The format and textures are the same as her other Mothership palettes where she has mattes, smooth metallic shimmers and glittery sparkles. For me this is way outside of my comfort zone but I still had fun playing with it. Quality and pigment-wise all the colors are phenomenal. The mattes blend and layer beautifully. As boring as the soft tan brown Taboo looks I found it really nice and flattering! The shimmers are almost creamy to the touch and blend smoothly. The glitters give this multi-dimensional iridescent sheen that is quite amazing – there is some fallout with the glitters as expected but it’s easy to clean up. I recommend applying the sparkles with a damp brush, over a creamy base to help it stick, or fingers in a patting motion.

Pat McGrath Labs Mothership VI Midnight Sun Eyeshadow Palette

Swatches and close ups of Midnight Sun which includes all new shades:

  • Skinshow Moon Glow is a smooth metallic champagne
  • Bronze Eclipse is a warm shimmery bronze taupe
  • Vermillion Venom is matte cranberry
  • Blood Moon 005 is a glittery copper rose metallic
  • Jubilee is a glittery warm yellow gold
  • Xtreme Dusk is a deep brown matte
  • Taboo is a matte medium brown
  • Wicked Envy is a shimmery olive
  • Blitz Violet Orchid is an ultra smooth almost creamy blue violet shimmer
  • Astral Solstice is a glittering platinum sparkle

Midnight Sun and Carnal Desire

Midnight Sun Eyeshadow Palette

The palette is stunning for sure! But I didn’t love all of the colors. Quality and performance-wise it’s excellent, however I cannot wear yellow golds or violet purples – they clash with my skin tone no matter how pretty they are or how hard I try to blend. For her palettes I prefer the color scheme of her previous launch Mothership V Bronze Seduction or any of her 6-pan palettes which I find easier to wear for someone like me who tends to be more conservative on the sparkle for eyes. I do think it is different/unique enough to justify owning if you like all the colors. For me I most likely would not have bought this one as I really try to stick with my rule of buying palettes if I think I will like all the colors. I’m still going to try to make the purple work for me but it’s never really been a color I gravitate towards.

The Mothership VI Midnight Sun is available now at Pat McGrath Labs. Have you tried any of her eyeshadow palettes before? What did you think?

Eye Makeup Lips NARS

NARS Oil-Infused Lip Tints (New Shades) + Wanted Mini Eyeshadow Palette

July 2, 2019

NARS Oil-Infused Lip Tints Primal Instinct, High Security, Disco Infernal and Mini Wanted

NARS launched a few new products at Sephora with new shades of the Oil-Infused Lip Tints ($26 each 0.17 oz/5.7 ml) and a pocket-sized eyeshadow palette called the Wanted Mini Eyeshadow Palette ($25 for 6 colors 0.02 oz/.7 g x 6). I have swatches plus thoughts on all the new launches. Per the NARS team everything is limited-edition.

Oil-Infused Lip Tints

NARS Oil-Infused Lip Tints Primal Instinct, High Security, Disco Infernal review

I’ve been a huge fan of the Orgasm Oil-Infused Lip Tint and Orgasm Afterglow Balm so I was excited to try the new lip oil shades. There are three colors and they have the same emollient feel and packaging as the Orgasm oil: hydrating, smooth, not sticky, comforting and offer just a slight hint of color. On me pigment is barely there and sheer. I don’t get a shift on the lips in color like I did with the Orgasm color (review here). They are formulated with raspberry seed oil and pomegranate extracts to hydrate and protect.

  • Primal Instinct is a sheer beige
  • High Security is a fuchsia
  • Disco Infernal is a purple berry

For me I think Orgasm is the best color as it transforms to a healthy soft pink on me. The new ones are nice if you can’t do the color-shifting lip products. I know some of you find they turn into a super unflattering bright pink – these look different on everyone. The new ones are so sheer and have a similar vibe on me, I’d recommend opting for just one if you want to try them. Even though they look practically the same on me, I’ve still been loving the formula for the beach or warm weather days. I wore the beige one out kayaking with my niece and nephew who were visiting in town last week. It stayed put for 5 hours straight without budging or sliding. Lips felt good the entire time.

Mini Wanted

NARS Mini Wanted Eyeshadow Palette

NARS launched a pocket size version of one of their best selling palettes Wanted in a super mini version called the Wanted Eyeshadow Mini Palette (originally reviewed here). The mini has 6 shades while the full size has 12. I think the full-size is the better buy and you get more color options for a complete eye look. The mini is one of the smallest palettes I think I’ve ever seen. Quality of the mini is the same as the full large option you can still find at Ulta or Macy’s. Colors applied smoothly without any issue and layer beautifully. The customer reviews online are pretty bad but to me it seems it’s all based on the size and price. I think it’s all based on the packaging presentation – one look at this in person and it’s fairly unimpressive just based on the size. The Natasha Denona Mini Eye Palettes are the same price $25 and are also similar in weight per pan for the shadows but seems to have more positive reviews even though it’s tiny too. Also by comparison the NARS Voyageur Eyeshadow Palettes have 6 shades just like the Mini Wanted, is priced higher at $32 yet has less product (pans are .6 g each). The packaging and presentation looks so much better even though these are small pans as well.

I think the Mini Wanted might be nice if you want to gift something at that $25 or under price point and still have it be from a luxury brand. I do think there are better options out there, but a quick price filter just on Sephora alone shows that most of them will be over the $25 mark.

NARS Oil-Infused Lip Tints Primal Instinct, High Security, Disco Infernal and Mini Wanted review and swatchesQuality-wise everything performs well. The eyeshadows are smooth, nicely pigmented, layer beautifully for a soft rosy eye look. They stay put and don’t have a lot of fall out and blend well. The palette is too small for my taste even though I do love a good mini. I think the full size is a lot better  for the price and more versatile.

The Oil-Infused Lip Tints are lovely for that smooth hydrating feel and soft wash of color to tint the lips. They do make the lips look lush and glossy in a really pretty way, but I’m still partial to the first one they launched in Orgasm.

You can find these new launches available now at Sephora.
