Top 3 Mascaras of the Moment

It's confession time and I have to admit that a mascara hoarder! I love mascaras and have drawers of them but given how short their shelf life usually is, I do have trouble using them all up. I have been trying to pick a few and use them before they dry up. To that end, I've picked my Top 3 Mascaras of the Moment to share with you.

1. Roller Lash by Benefit* ($38.00) - Benefit know brows but they're also pretty savvy when it comes to mascaras. I was lucky enough to receive one of these at Obsession 2015 before they officially launched but they are currently available at Benefit counters. Roller Lash is an innotative mascara designed to both curl and lengthen lashes for va-va voom lashes. You can ditch the eyelash curler and stick with just this mascara, that's how good it is! I initially wasn't that taken with it but by my second coat, I was hooked. The curl looks amazing and really holds and Benefit gets their usual points for the super cute packaging. There's no flaking or clumping at all and unlike They're Real, this mascara is easy to remove and doesn't require industrial strength makeup remover to take off. Big thumbs up from me!
2. Max Factor Masterpiece Transform ($23.95) - I have never really been a fan of Max Factor, they seem to have always slipped under my radar. This mascara arrived as part of the autumn edit of The Parcel subscription box and I was quite interested to try it out. It has a slightly bendy rubber brush with a quite unique flat shape and rows of bristles down each side. I wasn't expecting much but I was pleasantly surprised to find that the little plastic bristles do a really good job or grabbing and coating lashes. You end up with long, voluminous lashes with only a hint of clumpyness, which I quite like. I feel like I should probably try a few more Max Factor products now, what if they're all this good and I've been missing out the whole time?
3. Josie Maran Argan Black Oil Mascara ($27.00) - This was a spur of the moment purchase, mostly because I loved the packaging, was impressed by the price and because I love my Josie Maran Coconut Watercolour Eye Shadow. This mascara has a spiral bristled brush and quite a thick formuala resulting in really fat but quite clumpy looking lashes. I originally hated this but it's grown on me and I'm finding that I quite like the clumpy lash look, especially for a night out. I do find that I have to scrape a lot of product off the brush before I use it because it is quite thick. Now that I've got that little trick down, I'm finding myself reaching for this mascara more and more frequently.
What are your favourite mascaras at the moment?

That Josie Maran one looks awesome! I'm still tossing up whether I like the look of the Roller Lash or not!

I've been curious about the Benefit mascara. This is making the lemming worse!

I think it was the argan oil bit that sold me on the Josie Maran one, and the cool packaging! I have grown to like it even though the formula is quite thick. I've heard so many mixed reviews of Roller Lash but I am definitely a fan.

There have been so many mixed reviews on Roller Lash! I think if you already have long-ish lashes and want a nice, natural looking mascara, it's great!

My problem exactly! SO MANY MASCARAS! I do love Roller Lash, I've heard that you can get a free sample by trading in your eyelash curlers?

Just saw that on the Instabeautyau group... I'm pretty sure I have some old curlers somewhere. YAY!
