A couple of weeks ago, I posted a product review of Burt’s Bees Beeswax Lip Balm. As promised, here is another review of one of my favorite products.

Again, as a disclaimer, no companies have asked me to review their products.

Victoria’s Secret has been around for years. The name is known in virtually every household as the dirty little secret lingerie and bra shop. They also, however, have a fabulous makeup line. Although I only use a couple of their makeup products, such as VS lip gloss in Tempt (shade no longer offered but similar to Intimate) and VS eyeshadow in Procrastination (shade no longer offered but similar to Luxe), I am a hardcore fan of their VS Makeup High-definition Mascara.

PS - VS actually stands for their Very Sexy brand, not Victoria's Secret.

Of all of my makeup products, my VS mascara is the one product that I will not go without. I love drawing attention to my eyes since I feel that they’re a strong feature of mine, and this mascara does that perfectly without looking tacky. Since my lashes can be fine and lighter in color, adding a black mascara really makes my eyes pop. It’s also the only mascara that I’ve found that looks dramatic without being too much – and believe me, since mascara is my number one makeup product, I’ve tried a few. On the other hand, most mascaras on the cheaper end often are much too light for my taste and end up getting severely clumpy within a couple of months. Even high-end mascara, such as Stila, just don’t stand up to VS mascara for me.

Okay, so she's wearing false eye lashes - but still, the stuff works.

Onto the negatives. Many mascara aficianados such as myself know that mascara typically only lasts about three months before it gets too clumpy to work properly. Yes, really. Don’t tell me that you can make your mascara last a year – you get massive clumps in your eyelashes and you know it. Mascara was designed to be as finicky as a colicky infant. Sadly, VS mascara is no different – in three months or so, I get clumps that will not go away and it has to be replaced. It does, however, make me feel slightly better about the recently reduced amount of mascara I get in a tube – to be fair, I wouldn’t have really used up the larger tube anyway. Additionally, VS currently only offers their VS Makeup mascaras in Blackest Black. That isn’t a big deal for me because I only wear black mascara, but that perhaps wouldn’t work so well for someone needing mascara with a brown tint. They do have varying mascara colors in their Beauty Rush line, usually found near the registers.

Also, I should note that VS did recently expand their VS Makeup mascara line to include other types of mascara, including Triple Drama, Extra-Lengthening, and Voluptuous in both regular and waterproof. You could certainly try those out as well, but my recommendation stays for the High-definition Mascara, hands down.

Are you a diehard fan for any particular mascara? Have you had any negative experiences with mascara?
