Mascara: Bare Minerals Flawless Definition is AMAZING!

For years I've been using Maybelline's Great Lash Mascara.  It was the best thing I could find and I know a good majority of you agree with me (not to mention the adorable pink and green case).  However, during the winter with my horrid allergies, I can't wear this particular mascara as it doesn't have an hypoallergenic qualities and any little tickle makes my lids swell and push my contacts around.  It's just a mess and I end up having to wear my glasses and no mascara.  And I just haven't found another hypoallergenic mascara that covers as well.

Anyways, for most of my other makeup, I'm a Bare Minerals girl. I like not having any liquid on my face whatsoever outside of moisturizer and this makeup achieves that, gives nice natural coverage (and get this....) stays fresh ALL DAY LONG.  Recently, I purchased one of their kits and included was Bare Minerals Flawless Definition Mascara.  I'd never tried their mascara before so I was game.  

There are several Flawless Definition mascaras from Bare Minerals so to be clear, this one is the original (no waterproof, no volumizing or curling).

I am SOLD!  I will never go back to Great Lash.  It's absolutely amazing and even though it's not marketed as hypoallergenic  I have had zero issues wearing it!  Yay!!  It has great coverage for my thin lashes.  It lengthens like I've never seen a mascara do before (I have very short lashes) and it thickens them without clumping or overdoing it and keeps a nice, natural separation between the individual lashes.  I actually received a compliment on my lashes!  Seriously, who has ever received a compliment on their eyelashes?  

I thought I would never get away from Great Lash.  It's a great mascara, Bare Minerals is just better.  I will never go back.

And there you have it, my latest makeup update.  Try it, I'm sure you won't be disappointed!

Happy Monday Y'all!


  1. That's what I wore for my wedding. When I went and got my make-up done beforehand, that's what they used on me. But it was brown and when I dyed my hair brown, I had to go back to black so I went BACK in and got my make-up done and they used Smashbox mascara on me. I LOVE IT! It's my favorite I have ever used and I used to be sold on Great Lash also. I got a free sample of it when I bought it (it was a bonus they were having). Maybe I'll send it to you in your Christmas present ;-)

  2. Great tip! I always go back and forth between brands, but I'll have to try this one out!

  3. Going to try this out! I usually stick to the pink and green great lash but I noticed issues with contacts too.

  4. Great Lash was the very first mascara I wore and I come back to it time after time. But I will give Bare Minerals a try:)
