Liz’s List : Victoria’s Secret Mascara

If you are like me, then there’s no real “strategy” to your makeup routine. I don’t wear a ton of makeup day-to-day. Mainly just moisturizer, bronzer, blush and mascara. But the mascara is key to opening my eyes. I don’t leave home without it!

I have tried a lot of mascara brands. Drugstore types to really expensive types. My complaints were usually the same … clumpy, goopy or ran out too quickly.

Then, a few years ago a Facebook friend of mine posted a recommendation for Victoria’s Secret Triple Volume mascara. It came at the perfect time as my usual staple, Benefit Bad Gal, had just run out … after three weeks!

I stopped by VS on my way home from the office and grabbed a tube to try.

I tested it out that night and really liked this mascara right off the bat. It’s dubbed as having a three-in-one formula that “volumizes, lengthens and defines,” which I’d say is spot on.

It’s gives your lashes a dramatic, dark look. It does not clump and seems to extend each individual lash in length. I have short, unimpressive lashes, and I feel like it makes my eyes pop.

I use a quick coat on my casual days…

 and two coats for my “going out” look.

Plus one tube seems to last forever. My latest one is three months old and still does a great job. The price is fabulous too – just $14 a tube. This very quickly became my day-to-day mascara.

So, if you’re looking for an inexpensive mascara that will make your eyes pop and lasts a long time, Victoria’s Secret’s Triple Drama mascara is a great choice.
