    For an organic luxury alternative: Kjaer Weis. For $38, it’s a great deal, safe for you and the environment. The packaging is refillable, as are all Kjaer Weis.

    Thank you for including mascaras in all price ranges! Sometimes, I just don’t feel like using my $50 mascara on a daily basis on the account of I feel like I’m wasting it.

    Nothing will ever compare to the perfection that was Lash Stylist. All these years after, I’m still in mourning

    Would you guys ever do a drugstore makeup related post? It’s totally fine if you keep posting about higher end makeup, but I think a post like that would be great and relate to a lot of other people besides me:P

    • Of course! That’s a great idea, in fact.

    Thanks for these! I’ve been disappointed with my last few expensive mascaras and my two favorites, esp Clinique’s old Gentle Waterproof Mascara, have been discontinued. I really miss the Clinique one. It was perfect for everyday wear.

    I checked these on makeupalley and the reviews are pretty mixed. The Chantecaille mascara fares the best with the MA reviewers, so I will give that one a try.

    If I can add one option in the lower price range, it’s Mavala (of Switzerland) Eye-Lite Waterproof. Friends have it and rave about it. And it costs about $10 a tube. However, it can be difficult to find. I’m going to look for it this week and try it.

    Chantecaille has two non-waterproof mascaras… the one above for $70 and a less expensive version (without the lengthening formula) for $40. The Faux Cils mascara for $40 is my Holy Grail! Besides being significantly less expensive, it doesn’t smudge, flake, or leave racoon eyes like the longest lash will do in humidity. Plus, I already use Latisse so don’t need the additional lengthener. It also has the rosewater scent which is divine! I’m always on the look out for something comparable with an even lower price tag, but always end up back with this.
