We here at Spa Week and Spa Week Daily love our mascara. We could be running 20 minutes late, but the one thing we will stop for is putting on mascara. After all, when you’ve got flirty peepers, anything and everything can go your way.

We’re immersed in all things beauty over here, so I decided to take an informal poll and find out what everyone’s go-to mascara is and let you guys know. Read our list and let us know if your mascara made our cut.

“My luxe mascara pick is Giorgio Armani Eyes to Kill in Steel Black ($30, nordstrom.com). It’s super lengthening and makes me feel like I have Kardashian lashes, but the $30 price tag has me saving it for special occasions only. My everyday pick is Maybelline Volum’ Express The Falsies Waterproof Mascara in Brownish Black ($5.70, target.com) because it’s never clumpy and doesn’t run or smudge.”Laura Knipping—Special Projects Editor

givenchy mascara
“Givenchy PhenomenEyes Mascara ($30, sephora.com). The applicator is ball-shaped and really allows you to get the lashes from all angles. It lengthens and adds volume at the same time and gives a great panoramic effect.”Melissa Rogers—Director of Travel Marketing

Diorshow ($25, sephora.com)–My friends think my lashes are fake when I wear this!!” Melissa Jose—Director of Affiliate Sales

pixi large lash mascara

 “Pixi Large Lash Mascara ($18, pixibeauty.com). I started using Pixi Large Lash in Best Brown (it’s a deep, dark brown) about a year or so ago, and now I can’t even look at another mascara. One sweep and I’ve got long, thick lashes. It washes off easily and feels weightless.” PJ Gach- Managing Editor Spa Week Daily

bad gal mascara

“My favorite mascara is Benefit Bad Gal Lash ($19, sephora.com). I like it because it makes my eyelashes nice and long, it also doesn’t clump.” Valarie DiPaola—Marketing Coordinator


Clinique Lash Doubling Mascara ($16, clinique.com) because you can load a lot on and it never clumps. It stays on throughout the day, but it’s really easy to take off. “Kelly Verdi – Marketing and Public Relations Manager

diorshow mascaara

“I admit it – I wear false eyelashes most every day, but if I ever want to skip that whole production,  Diorshow Mascara in Black ($25, sephora.com) is the first mascara I’m digging from my makeup bag. The super huge brush makes my lashes pop. This one’s worth every penny.” Dina Sanchez—Director of Sales and Marketing


Maybelline Volum’ Express One-By-One ($8.15, maybelline.com) is great with one coat, for everyday use and if applied with multiple coats, it’s great for a night out!  Diorshow ($25, sephora.com) is a never fail, great go-to-option! It’s a staple for Natalie Portman. So if it’s good enough for her, it’s good enough for me!” Kaitlin Stafford–Senior Account Manager
