    I am a hoarder of mascaras. Regarding my make up addiction, I am guilty of having too many different mascaras as well as way too many lip glosses and lipsticks. I currently own about 50 tubes of mascara though I am currently only alternating 10 of those. I know to change them out every 3 to 4 months. Therefore, I leave the other 40 tubes unopened until I am ready to use them.

    However, recently one of my new mascaras has emerged as a favorite. I LOVE LOVE LOVE Kevyn Aucoin's Volume mascara. I usually put on a couple of coats of a thickening and lengthening mascara and then top it with the Aucoin mascara. This mascara is truly AMAZING at lengthening and volumizing eyelashes without any clumping or smudging. I am in love and went online today to buy 2 more tubes as back up.

    As far as I know, you can only buy Kevyn Aucoin's beauty products via Barney's New York or at a Neiman Marcus. To end this RAVE, I do have a question for my fellow beauty addicts since so many of us are MAC addicts too. How do y'all feel about the In Extreme Dimension Lash from MAC? I just bought it today and put in my "to use eventually" box of 40. Has anyone used it yet and what do you guys think? Thanks. And if you can, please give the Aucoin volumizing mascara a go. It rocks!

    Nice to connect with other mascara fiends! I obsessively try out all sorts of new ones in the quest for the ultimate... although, really, I've kind of found some that qualify for HG status. Here are my faves:

    1. YSL Effet Faux Cils- My overall favourite, although it has a tendency to clump a bit when new (can be brushed out). Incredible, dramatic length and volume and still leaves my lashes feeling pretty soft. Doesn't flake at all. I <3 this one to death.

    2. Cargo Lash Activator- I got a sample of this one in a GWP bag and was blown away. I love the flexible brush, because I find that it gradually shaped itself perfectly for my lashes. I haven't heard a lot about it, but it's as good as the pretige brand mascaras.

    3. Givenchy Noir Couture- Doesn't give quite as much volume (still good, but the previous two are better), but amazing length and it's the only mascara I've tried that really seems to give my lashes a curl. My lashes are slightly curled naturally, so most mascaras don't do all that much, but this one definitely gave them a visible lift.
