After reviewing DiorShow, I wanted to know if I could find a cheap mascara that could out pass it. Although I love E.L.F very much, I have never tried any of their mascaras. Frankly, the reviews on Makeup Alley put me off and I didn't want to waste my money. After the "Back to School" display at Target was taken down, a lot of E.L.F products were marked 30% off and I decided to grab a smokey eyes kit. Inside, I found this Lengthening and Defining mascara. The sleek design called my name and I decided to give it a try.

I took a whole bunch of close-ups of my right eye and grouped them together for your viewing pleasure. Before, I just added one photo at a time and it made my mascara reviews too long. With this new format, things look more put-together and hopefully, we can compare things better.
First up, the bare lashes:
First coat of mascara

Second coat of mascara
|After 2 coats of e.l.f Lengthening and Defining mascara|
Third coat of mascara
|After 3 coats of e.l.f Lengthening and Defining mascara|
This mascara does not flake or smudge, despite me wearing it for more than 6 hours. It feels light weight and holds the curl pretty well, too. I wish E.L.F selling it as an individual item again because I know I would stock it up. This is some good stuff. After being an advocate for drugstore mascaras, I've come to a conclusion that we can all look gorgeous on a budget. With products like this, I am sure I am not going to rely on DiorShow anytime soon.
