Mini-Mascaras = Review Time

1. EM Cosmetic Lash Gallery Mascara - Sample came completely dried up. Could not test. Also, I received a Brown one, which I would not have liked anyways.
2.  Jelly Pong Pong Fairy Lashes Mascara - Sample came completely dried up. Could not test.
3. Stila Huge Extreme Lash Mascara - Hourglass shaped wand. Lengthening. Thickening. Semi-thick formula. Wand gets every lash from root to tip. Curls and stays.
WOULD PURCHASE FULL SIZE.
4. Smashbox Full Exposure Mascara - Typical shaped wand, that provides length, volume, and a bold dark lash. I found the application consistent and smooth, covering the lashes from root to tip. WOULD PURCHASE FULL SIZE.
5. Smashbox X-Rated Mascara Volumateur - This mascara is great! It is very black, thickening, lengthening, and holds a curl! The only con is that brush, although I like its full and sturdiness, the bristles are a little sharp and easily pokes you in the eye. WOULD PURCHASE FULL SIZE.
6. Panthera Ultra Flash Mascara - Plastic wand is sturdy and well manufactured, however it doesn't pick up the formula, this is probably because the formula is very thin and lightly pigmented.  I couldn't even finish one lash before reaching for another mascara. 
WOULD NOT PURCHASE FULL SIZE.
7. Nars Audacious Mascara - Plastic wand that is flimsy and bends too much when applying, so it doesn't grab lashes. Very pigmented. Lengthening. Separates lashes. However, because of the flimsy wand it isn't thickening at all. WOULD NOT PURCHASE FULL SIZE.
8. Make Up For Ever Smoky Extravagant Mascara -  Dramatic cone-shaped wand. Gets every single lash from inner to outer corner. Thinner consistency, however very build-able. Separates and lengthens lashes. WOULD PURCHASE FULL SIZE.
9. Benefit Cosmetics Roller Lash Mascara - Plastic curled wand. Curls lashes. Separates. Thinner formula, however very build-able. Great for lower lashes. 
 WOULD PURCHASE TRAVEL SIZE FOR BOTTOM LASHES ONLY.
10. Pixie Lash Booster Mascara - This sample has completely dried up. Could not test.
11. Guerlain Maxi Lash - I loved the full bristled wand and was really hopeful that it was going to be a great mascara for me, however after using it once I was proved wrong. The formula is thin with no pigment payoff. It made my lashes straight, although I curled and primed my lashes prior.
WOULD NOT PURCHASE FULL SIZE.
12. Urban Decay Perversion Mascara - Full bristle brush. Thick formula, however can become goopy. Smooth application but does not have lengthening benefits. Extremely messy in and out of the tube, literally ends up all over my lids and hands. WOULD NOT PURCHASE FULL SIZE.
13. Hourglass Film Noir Full Spectrum Mascara - Slight hourglass shaped wand. Wand does not grab lashes. Thin formula, that requires multiple layers to achieve darkest black colour.
WOULD NOT PURCHASE FULL SIZE. 
14. CARGO Better-Than-Waterproof Mascara - There was nothing about this mascara I liked. It was the thinnest consistency ever, barely covering my lashes, and needed 10+ coats to be visible. On top of that it took me forever with multiple make up removers to remove the barely there layer I was able to apply. Bioderma and IT Cosmetics Bye Bye Eye couldn't even tackle it. 
WOULD NOT PURCHASE FULL SIZE.
15. Lancôme Hypnose Drama Mascara - Full bristle wave shaped wand. Allows to get from root to tip of every lash. The formula is thick not clumpy, and jet black. I loved everything about this mascara and was sad to see the Sample go. Good thing I have another one :) 
WOULD PURCHASE FULL SIZE.
16. Bare Minerals Lash Domination - The plastic wand has spiral bristles. The worst idea ever! The wand catches random lashes making the application extremely patchy. The formula, for this type of wand, is way too thin. WOULD NOT PURCHASE FULL SIZE.
17. Be A Bombshell Lash Out - Sample came completely dried up. Could not test.
18.MTJ High Definition Mascara - This mascara has an unique plastic wand with multiple bobble like shapes. The wand is somewhat flimsy, however still manages to pick up all lashed from root to tip. It is a semi-thick formula that builds easily. The only downfall is that it dries out quickly becoming chunkier and hard to apply. WOULD PURCHSE FULL SIZE.
