Mascara Dupes and Dont’s

Faith Borum, Editor

Ahhhhhhh, mascara!  Mascara is essential for all makeup looks, from a natural look to a more bold look it’s the icing on the cake.  Lately mascaras from the brands Tarte and Too Faced have become more popular than ever, and  it seems because of their mascaras.  Because of the price, girls are always looking for a duplicate that is by a cheaper brand.  This week I put some dupes to the test!

The first mascara I put to the test was “Better Than Sex” by Too Faced.  Personally, I love this mascara and it looks wonderful on lashes. It comes in a water proof tube or a regular; and you can even by a set. This mascara is not too heavy, it doesn’t clump easily and with two coats makes your lashes long and voluminous just as advertised.  There is a small issue though, it is $23.  For someone who goes through mascara quickly and likes to apply the coats, that can get expensive.  If you’re someone like me who doesn’t wear mascara on daily, it’s not too bad, because the tube will last a year.

Why wouldn’t you want to save money though, right?

After looking at multiple dupes for this mascara, I found that Loreal’s “Lash Paradise” is almost the exact same thing… but retails at $7.99-$9.99, depending on the store you visit. That will save you quite a bit of money.

I would give this dupe a 10 out of 10!

So, save your money… put it towards a bath bomb or that new highlighter you’re dying to try.

The next mascara put to the test was “Lights Camera lashes” and “Lights Camera Splashes” (the waterproof version) by Tarte.  Let me tell ya, Tarte makes some killer lip scrubs and for sure a killer mascara! I love it!

The mascara retails for $23, the same price as “Better Than Sex” and in my opinion, much better.  It has crazy good volume, length and though it clumps easier two coats will make your lashes look amazing. Finding a dupe for this mascara… IMPOSSIBLE.

It has been said that Loreal’s “Voluminous Lashes” is the same, but after trying it… I found it to be your average drug store mascara. Yes, it was cheaper but not a dupe.

I would give this dupe a 3 out of 10!
