Jordana Best Lash Extreme Mascara

Danielle Bisbano - Friday, June 21, 2013


It just so happens that mascara is one of those products that is not easy to make “healthy”.  Dr. Hauschka makes a great one if you are willing to shell out a few extra bucks for it but if you are looking to save some money or, if you’re like me and you need five for your kit, one of my favorites is just $2.99 and it is great.
Jordana Best Lash Extreme doesn’t come with a bunch of claims.  None, really, since there is actually no packaging to speak of; just a clear plastic seal around the tube.  You have to discover for yourself what it does.  I kind of like that.  Going in not expecting anything as opposed to outrageous claims and ridiculous photos of airbrushed models sporting fake lashes.  Case in point: look at this ad for a Dior mascara.  I’m sorry but a mascara ad sporting a photo with lashes THIS fake should come with an asterisk, a disclaimer AND an LOL! 


Call me crazy but doesn’t that kind of defeat the purpose?  It’s like a shampoo ad where the model is wearing a wig.  False advertising much?  Anyway …
I think this mascara was the first Jordana item I ever bought.  It makes sense because there was some reason why I went back to buy practically everything else in the line.  It is that good.
This mascara makes your lashes long and thick with just one coat.  It’s not considered waterproof, at least it doesn’t say so on the tube but my own test says it sure is.  Smear some on the back of your hand and then try to rinse it off.  Not happening.  Yet it doesn’t feel hard and stiff like most waterproof mascaras.  The brush that comes with it works well but sometimes dispenses a little too much product so you may have to wipe some excess off first.  I like it even more when I use one of the disposable brushes in my kit. 

I did a before and after picture for you!  Top pic is my nothing special lashes with no mascara.  Bottom is after one coat of Best Lash.  Not bad, right?


Of all the cosmetics we use, mascara has the shortest shelf-life so don’t waste your money on “designer” mascara.  All you are really paying for is their fancy, phony ads.  Try this instead and you can ensure that your mascara is nice and fresh for a fraction of the cost.  Beauty steals like this just have to be shared! 

Jordana is only available online or at Walgreens or Kmart!
