In Search for the Perfect Mascara

I very rarely blog about makeup and it's funny that I don't. Especially since I practically grew up wearing makeup. My mom started selling Avon when I was a baby and she sold it until her death. She passed away 1 month before my 30th birthday and 3 months before her 30th anniversary with Avon. Sometimes I will blog about some makeup, like the Mark brand. Love their eye-shadows!

I just recently realized that I have never found a mascara that I am totally happy with. I have tried so many. For years I used an Avon brand because that's all I used. For a little while I used Mary Kay, but I went back to Avon. After a while I realized I was not happy with my mascara and I started using Maybelline Great Lash. I really liked it for a while but it wasn't exactly the perfect mascara. I just kept using it because I liked it better than Avon and Mary Kay.

At 43 I realized that I can not find a mascara that I really like. I've tried so many. Avon, Mary Kay, Maybelline Great Lash, Diorshow, CoverGirl Lashblast Fusion, Maybelline the Falsies and Maybelline Lash Stiletto.

In my search for a good mascara my niece with the natural 6 inch eyelashes recommended Diorshow and she even showed the proper way to apply mascara. But really! WHO has the time that it takes to saw mascara on your lashes and to pull them out? I want a mascara that is fast and easy to apply and looks at least 75% as good as it does on the model on TV. I don't expect to look exactly the same, but who makes a mascara that is fast and easy for a working mom of two to apply?

A friend of mine recently posted Maybelline's the Colossal Volum Express on Facebook. I don't even know if that's how you spell it. I said I would try it next. I think this will be fun. I'm going to start trying all of the different mascaras and I'm going to review them to tell you all what I think, at the POV of a busy working mother. I need an easy to apply no-fuss mascara. I will let you know what I discover.
