Ethan Lozano’s Take
Choosing a mascara can be just as difficult as choosing a major in college — at least for me. But what makes the perfect mascara is different for everyone. I love a mascara that makes my lashes look longer, wispier and more defined. This look enhances your natural beauty. Définicils by Lancôme perfectly achieves this goal. It makes my eyes look captivating yet natural. If you’re feeling skeptical, remember that Lancôme makes some of the most-awarded mascaras on the market. This mascara specifically has received over 15 awards from Allure Magazine’s Yearly Reader’s Choice and Best Beauty awards. From the first time I put on Définicils, I knew there was no going back because I couldn’t see myself living without it. It lasts all day, even through those morning tears from yawning so much in your 9 a.m. class. Next time you buy your next mascara, you must not forget that Définicils is more inexpensive than the Hourglass Caution mascara and has a higher rating on Sephora’s website. Buy Définicils by Lancôme for $27.50 at Sephora, Ulta or Macy’s.
Hourglass Caution mascara is the best product to have graced my eyelashes. But when I first bought it, I thought it was the worst. I didn’t feel like I was getting any product from the tube. Then, I began to notice that it applied the perfect amount of mascara — not too much, not too little. It also elongated and separated my lashes in an ineffable way. Honestly, I didn’t even realize how special Caution was until this morning. Last week, I noticed that my tube was starting to dry out so — in a vicious act of betrayal — I ordered a new mascara, Marc Jacobs’ Velvet Noir Major Volume Mascara. When I was getting ready for class, I opted for the Marc Jacobs’ mascara, which was a huge mistake. Not only did it barely even make a difference in the length and volume of my lashes, it spread everywhere. So with mascara all over my eyelids, I truly appreciated the gift that Hourglass made available for me to purchase and use. Buy Hourglass Caution for $29 at your local Sephora or Nordstrom.
