Mascara recommendation?

I can't seem to find a mascara that I'm happy with... I'm currently using Maybelline's WATERPROOF full and soft brand and like that it doesn't make my eyelashes feel like straw, but I can't seem to get my mascara to stay on and not show up ABOVE and BELOW my eyes.  Very frustrating!  I've started using BioOil on my face (and I put it on my eye lids, too) and I'm wondering if maybe that's making my mascara slide off my eyes?  Any suggestions for what I can do?  Is there another brand that you think might work better for me?  I'd like to stick to something $12.00 or less! (I like the natural and full look)

Thanks,

Dawn R.

Trult he best mascara on market that is less than $12 is the L'oreal Extra Volume Collagen Plumping mascara. This mascara makes my eyelashes look soo long and noticeable, you will love it.! strong recommendations!! good luck. p.s. its about 8 bucks.

Mascara

I just bought Maybelline's The Falsies Volume Express.  I also bought Revlon's Cutom Eyes that I use with the Maybelline product.  You can dial in 2 different kinds of application with the Revlon mascara.  Used together, my lashes are really full and long.  I love it!!  It really works.  Try that, and don't use the oil - sounds like that is causing the mascara to move around.

 Also visit Ulta.com's website.  They always have a $3.50 off coupon, if you spend $10.00, you can print and take to the store.  And, if you have to order, they have a discount for on-line orders.  I love ULTA.  Not only do they carry "drugstore" brands, but they also carry high end products like Benefit etc.  They also have lines of skincare that you can test.  But they do not have as good a refund policy as Sephora on what Ulta calls the "Prestige" cosmetics, like Benefit, Too Faced etc.

Mascara + oil...

Dawn, I use jojoba oil on my face because my skin is very sensitive.  I have to be careful in the morning not to get the oil around my eyes if I want my make up and mascara to look right and not creep around.  The BioOil might cause your mascara problems.
