I thought I always ended up with clumpy mascara because I bought "cheap" mascara (i.e. the stuff you can buy at any drugstore, Wal Mart or Target) so I spent like $20 on some Clinique mascara and it is even more clumpy than the cheap stuff!!! This makes me think that I'm doing something wrong! So, tell me ladies.....is there such a thing as mascara that won't clump or any special secret that I don't know that keeps it from clumping?

Huh! I always get CoverGirl for everything, and I don't really have that problem. The only thing I can think of is maybe you're not wiping the tip off? When I dunk the mascara brush in the jar, and then take it out, there's always a bunch of it on the bottom of the wand that I have to wipe off. I use a seperate dunk for each top lash of each eye; and just one dunk for both bottom lashes of both eyes. If that makes any sense lol

Hmmm...Clinique is usually really great stuff..that's what I use! I've heard that if you squart a little bit of water on the brush it helps with the clumps, but I've never tried it. The ladies in the health and beauty board are good experts, maybe they will know a little better.

Beauty boards? No way! I didn't even know we had those. Well, that's one board I definitely shouldn't be the host of!

You definitely need a metal eyelash comb. They are much better than plastic ones. I have one made by Sonia Kushak from Target.

i also use clinique and love it. the other thing you can do is blot the eyelash brush with a tissue. when i pull it out of the tube, i kinda squeeze it between my two fingers with a tissue in my hand so it gets off any excess all around the brush. then if you want to do a second coat b/c you didn't get as much mascara the first time, you can. just wait for the first coat to dry a little.

Ditto Courtney on wiping off the big clump on the end. The only non-clumping mascara I've ever used is Featherlash by Loreal. It's AWESOME. Also, you should replace your mascara every 6mos-1year even if you have plenty left. It seems it gets clumpier as it ages.

I love, love, love my metal eyelash comb because it's so easy to clean. (It's good for eyebrows too.)

I use Loreal because I found it be the best.. I also agree about replacing it frequently.

Go to Sephora. They have so many different mascaras and you can test the all before you buy them! My favourite is called Bad Girl Lashes by Benefit. Its the best mascara I have ever used and I buy ALOT of make up lol
