This is my first attempt so be gentle! =)


mark Make It Big Lash Plumping Mascara $6

What it claims: Build and lengthen lashes with this lightweight, smudge-proof formula that's paired with the super-sized brush.

Dior Diorshow Mascara $24

What it claims: Creates the longest, thickest, curviest lashes ever, resulting in an ultra-glam "just-off-the-catwalk" look.

Bourjois Pump Up the Volume Waterproof Mascara $14.50

What it claims: A truly uplifting experience, rain or shine. This silicone rich formula pumps up your lashes in any weather, instantly volumizing and uplifting.


My lashes are very sensitive to non-waterproof mascara. Meaning they see it, they drop before the wand hits my lashes. But I decided to give Diorshow a try anyway.

Big Mistake. My lashes did not like it. It was too heavy, even with heating up my eyelash curler. And I hate curling my lashes after one coat. It just sticks like glue, even dry. So $24 goes down the drain.

Next up, mark. Now, you know what I said about me & waterproof mascara. Make it Big was alot lighter than Diorshow, so my lashes didn’t drop as much. I still had to curl them afterward but this time I did not heat up my curler. I bet if I do, next time they should stay up.

Now, Bourjois. I’ve been wearing this mascara everyday because I have NO time at all to get ready in the morning. Since it’s waterproof, I don’t have to recurl my lashes. They stay up. But I noticed it doesn’t lenghten my lashes as much as mark did. But it does add the much needed volume.


Sorry folks. I’m not being biased but I have to choose mark. If I was able to wake up on time, I would use it more. My lashes were thicker and longer, even without a primer. And for the $6 price, I won’t complain about heating up my eyelash curler. If your lashes have no problem with waterproof/nonwaterproof mascara, you should definitely try it. But Bourjois came a very close 2nd.


Diorshow. Icky Icky! I'll get the waterproof one soon and post another review.

I wanted to start this blog to give others a review coming from an actual consumer, not some market watched company-produced review.

I'll try to be honest & fair and will tell you if I HATE, LOVE, or am SO-SO with a product.

I love makeup! I'm really excited because now I have an excuse to fill my over stuffed train case with more makeup! Fab!
