EbeautyDaily reviewed Shu Uemura's Basic Mascara and a great find at Sally's Beauty Supply called Magnified Mascara by Sherani.
First up is the Allure award winning Shu. This mascara "goes on smooth and sleek from start to finish" and keeps lashes curled. There are no flakes or smudges. The down side is the price and it takes several coats to get dramatic eyes.
***From Annie:I just bought this mascara this weekend based on the raves. I am giving it a test run today. So far there is no smudges and my lashes are still curled.
The second review is the Sherani mascara. It is priced at $4 to $5 but performs like a high end mascara. It gives a dramatic eye and does not flake. A potential negative is that it goes on heavy and might clump. Ebeauty suggests running a comb through the lashes during application.
