The days of hits and misses when it comes to shopping for beauty products are, thankfully, behind us. The Digital Age brought along numerous perks, and beauty bloggers and vloggers are one of them. Instead of taking advice from salespeople flattering us into buying a certain product, we are now graced with honest and unbiased advice from the girls who have tried it all.
There is a good reason these girls wear the ‘influencer’ title. They have millions of girls following them and taking beauty tips and recommendations they so generously share. We trust them because they don’t shy away from calling a spade a spade; if they hate a product they will say it loud and clear. So, if you feel that your makeup case is lacking in quality, take a page from these girls’ beauty books, because these gals know their stuff.

Second only to the pursuit for a foundation that will feel like second skin is the hunt for a mascara that will bring back the days of flirty batting eyelashes, length and volume that stop the traffic. Kimberly Nissen, one of the most respected Australian bloggers, has one huge issue – allergies. This is something many girls out there can relate to, and she found her Holy Grail in the Maybelline Volum' Express Falsies Everlasting Waterproof Mascara. In her words, this mascara doesn’t sting or burn, doesn’t budge even if you’re crying in the rain.
As she puts it: “It has a dark glossy finish. It isn’t so dark that it can’t be worn during the daytime, but it is also dark enough to be suitable for the evening. It is a great mascara if you need to take your eye look from day to night without changing your mascara, which we all know can be messy, and it’s super easy to apply. So, there you have it – a waterproof drugstore miracle and saviour for even those with sensitive eyes.
