Top Recommended Mascaras

The top 15 mascara brands to use, as recommended by you, The Organised Housewife Community. 15 different mascara recommendations, ranging from some budget options to ones that a bit more of a splurge!

Recently I asked the Organised Housewife community on Instagram for their recommendations on what mascara brands they use and love. Check out the top 15 recommended mascara suggestions from our readers below. There are some amazing new make-up products out there, it’s worth trying new brands on occasion. I recently shared that I was looking a new foundation to try, particularly a foundation that would suit women in their 40s, and I received some great suggestions that you can see here.
