My Top 5 Mascara Picks for 2017
2017 was the year of mascara and the competition was steep for beauty companies to produce the biggest and the best for those who were demanding more from their mascaras then ever before. The desire for long and luxe lashes has created a frenzy from makeup manufactures and beauty product producers to pump up their tired mascara choices and enter a new stage of bigger, badder, better beauty.

This formula is not sticky or clumpy, and it contains Hairdensyl, a complex blend of proteins and amino acids that are known to stimulate lash growth. The honey extract provides deep nourishment, sea idrolized elastine stimulates the hair follicle, and marine collagen protects. The high-tech, volumizing brush separates and defines each lash for a clean, clump-free finish, and the triple-black pigments leave them looking intensely black.
