Mascara Madness deal details
This weekend only when you buy a full size tube of your favorite mascara, you can get another one for 50% OFF! OR take up to 34% off your favorite individual mascaras here. We've done all the research for you and figured out which deal is BEST for each particular mascara, so shop easy using this post!
We know you might be saying that you can’t afford department store mascara, but Corrine's first pick and hands-down favorite is almost the same price as drugstore mascara when you buy it today!!
Corrine's top Mascara Madness pick – best for overall volume + lengthening
IT Cosmetics Superhero mascara: this has been a serious fave of Corrine's for the past few years. It's one of her top three favorite mascaras!! It gives INCREDIBLE volume but isn't super clumpy and right now you can 2 tubes for only $39! (Reg. $52 for 2)
She loves how gentle yet lengthening it is. It's gentle enough that it washes off super easily, but it really gives you SUPER DRAMATIC lengthening and thickening, making every little lash POP.
Best mascara madness deal for sensitive eyes
Clinique High Impact Mascara: this mascara really makes your lashes POP with its formula but it's also made to be comfortable on sensitive eyes! It comes off super easily, which was important to Corrine especially when she used to get lash extensions done at a salon and (gasp!) sometimes wear mascara over them. Yes, she did that.
With traditional lash extensions that you get every few weeks, in between fills at the end when they’d start to look a little sparse. or occasionally when she was going to get pictures taken or have a really special night out, she'd put a light coat of Clinique High Impact Mascara over her lash extensions and it fills everything in just enough to make them all stand out, even the little lashes that don’t have an extension if that makes sense. Every time she did this – without fail – someone would say, “WOW are your lashes real? They look SO GOOD.”
Corrine wouldn’t recommend this daily BUT having said that, every time she washed her makeup off after wearing this on her lash extensions, gently with baby shampoo, it comes off just fine and her lash extensions stay on! Can’t say the same for a couple other mascaras she's tried over traditional lash extensions.
*New edit: if you're using Corrine's favorite AT HOME lash extensions that she talks about in this post, she would definitely not recommend using this mascara over those. You don't need it!! 🙂
If you don't wear lash extensions, this is definitely one of the gentlest formulas you can get if you wear contact lenses, or have very sensitive eyes.
When you buy Clinique High Impact Mascara today during mascara madness you’ll get 34% OFF making it just $15, and we're pretty sure most grocery store mascaras are now around $8-$10 (right?) so for a few dollars more we think it’s TOTALLY worth it. Plus when you buy during this deal it lasts 6 months if you wear it daily, and all year if you're only wearing it occasionally. This is SUCH a steal of a deal!
Highest Rated Mascara
Lancome Definicils High Definition Mascara: if you're looking for one of the highest recommended mascara by reviewers, this Lancome Definicils is by far the highest-rated mascara with more than 3k almost ALL perfect reviews. This stuff is a little more spendy at $33 a pop, but definitely worth it if you’re willing to invest. And right now during mascara madness you can get 2 of them for only $49.50! (Reg. $66 for 2)
The best thing about Lancome Definicils Mascara is that it never ever clumps, it'll make all your lashes stand out without ever becoming a spidery mess. Here’s a picture of Corrine's beautiful friend Carlie Stylez wearing her Lancome Defincils (PS you should watch + subscribe to her youtube she’s amazing and hilar!)
The Best Clean Mascara
If you've been searching high and low for the best CLEAN mascara, the search ends here. Enter: ILIA's Limitless Lash Mascara. This #1 selling mascara is 99% natural and is basically the only clean mascara that lives up to its name! It was gentle enough to layer on Corrine's lash extensions in the past but powerful enough to really amplify her tiny little bottom lashes. She can totally see why it won Allure's #1 Best Clean Mascara AND a Glamour Beauty Award!!! Celebrities and makeup artists alike have swooned over its ability to lift, thicken, and lengthen PLUS it has keratin in it to nourish the lashes!
Right now during this BOGO 50% off mascara madness deal you can get 2 tubes of this clean mascara for only $42! (Reg. $56 for 2)

Trish McEvoy! Worth every penny?
This is great! I need a new mascara and ordered the Clinique after reading this. Thanks for sharing!
I stocked up on the Urban Decay Perversion since it was so universally highly rated. Thanks for the tip on the great sale! Hopefully next year I can branch out and try different ones.
