The Nordstrom Mascara Madness Sale is like a holiday to me. I swear. Mascara Madness happens twice a year (March and November) and it’s when I stock up on my favorite makeup product ever. Buy 3 mascaras, get 1 free. That will likely last you 4+ months…and then you can stock up again in March. And bonus: when you place an order with Nordstrom, you get to select samples at checkout. And they’re always good ones.
Here are the mascaras I usually choose from:
MAC Haute & Naughty – Like I mentioned in this post, this mascara is my all-time favorite. It gives you the fullest, most dramatic lashes. And yes, it comes off easily with regular face wash — a major requirement for me.
MAC Zoom Lash – This will give you a softer, more angelic look, but crazy long lashes.
MAC In Extreme Dimension 3D Lash – This is my second favorite. It gives you crazy length and definition, just a little less drama than Haute & Naughty. It doesn’t build as well as H&N but it is still a “wow” look.
Urban Decay Perversion – Lots of volume here. Lots of drama. Goes on really well with a huge brush.
Dior Diorshow – This is a classic. Ladies love this. Aside from the hefty price tag, it’s a great overall mascara. My only gripe about this one is that you have to use it pretty quickly as it tends to dry up. Worth the splurge at least once to see if you like it.
I love all of these, but if I had to choose one…I’m sure you know by now, go with MAC’s Haute & Naughty. It does wonderful things!
