Absolutely Loving...

As the title suggests, I've been LOVING a new mascara lately.
The best part is, it only costs $7.

It's by Prestige and it's called My Blackest Lashes. I got mine from Rexall and it's one of the best mascaras I've ever used. Love it way more than L'Oreal Voluminous and most other high-end mascaras I've tried. It's not as thickening as Smoky Lash, but Smoky Lash got clumpy and dry in 3 weeks, which is unacceptable.

I've just really been enjoying it lately and can highly recommend it if you're a fan of volumizing mascaras (previous favourites of mine were YSL Faux Cils, YSL Singulier, MAC Plushlash and Makeup Forever Smoky Lash - just so you get a feel of the kind of mascaras I prefer).

This is what is looks like on - without eyelash curler action:

on the eyes I'm wearing Benefit Where There's Smoke eyeshadow

My lashes are pretty long naturally so I don't need too much lenghtening action, which is why I prefer volumizing mascaras. I also have quite oily eyelids and some mascaras I've loved before, like MAC Plushlash, always transferred after a long day. I am so far happy to report that so far, the Prestige mascara doesn't do that at all!

So definitely a two thumbs up from me.
Have you tried this? What's your favourite mascara?


  1. Seems like a great mascara, and you have such pretty eyes <3 My favourite at the moment is One by One by Maybelline :)


  2. Thanks for sharing this, my all time fave is L'Oreal Voluminous but it flakes for me by the end of the day (plus its almost double the cost of this one where I live.. boo!). I'm going to check out Rexall and see if I can pick it up. Thank you again!

  3. I think we have the same taste in mascaras. I'd really love to try this!

  4. I've never heard of Prestige, but I'm so so intrigued now. I've been trying out a sample of Laura Mercier's mascara (the lenghtening one) and I quite like that!


  5. I haven't tried this one. I feel from all the mascaras I have tried from pricey and not so pricey the one that works for me so far is Rimmel, makes my lashes really stand out. xo

  6. I would NEVER have thought to try this mascara! I'm always on the search for cheaper mascaras :)

    I tried Lashblast and liked it, but I felt like I ran out of product rather quickly. Not that it dried up, but actually ran out. Weird huh? haha

    Thanks for the rave!!

  7. I haven't tried this one but it looks amazing on you! I've seen Prestige stuff at my local drugstore so I may have to try this one out soon! Btw I love your eye makeup.

  9. Thanks for this post, my all time fave. is MaxFactor False Lash Effect but this looks fab for volume and for $7!
    Also must say I really like the look of that Benefit shadow looks great as an all-over lid colour


  10. looks lovely! Also I have to say im not sure what it is but eyeshadows always look so amazing on you! even if its just a single colour i think your eyeshape gives them a crazy dimension or something! lovely :) x

  11. I like! As a major mascara lover going to get this. My fave is still CG Lash Blast & also right now Max Factor 2000.
