The Mini Mascaras for All Your Travel Needs | Favorites

Okay, you know when you have like a ton of makeup that you really want to bring with you, but you just can't seem to either 1) fit it all in your small, compact makeup bag or 2) decide on which makeup item to even bring? Like mascara? I have so many mascaras and they're pretty big and bulky to just bring along sometimes.  Mascara has to be one of my favorite makeup items; I can't leave the house without a couple swipes on my upper lashes. With that being said, here are some of my top recommended mascaras that you can try out if you are looking for a new, holy grail mascara, or just need one for travel! 
Benefit Roller Lash- It really came down to deciding which Benefit mascara I liked the most, and to be honest, I love the Roller Lash just as much as I love They're Real. I would say that the Roller Lash does a really great job curling the lashes more than They're Real does. If you can't fit a lash curler into your travel bag, this is the one for you!
Benefit They're Real- This is a classic for many, and I love how much length this one gives compared to the Roller Lash. It does a great job spreading out my lashes, giving it a pretty butterfly effect. 
Makeup Forever Smokey Extravagant- I also fell in love with the Makeup Forever Smokey Extravagant mascara because of the tear-dropped shaped applicator. It really helps get every single lash, especially since it's mini size! This one also does a great job with executing the perfect butterfly lashes!  
MAC False Lashes- I'd like to say that this one gives the illusion of false lashes, and I think it rather enhances and lengthens your lashes instead of giving you a huge, dramatic, faux-looking lash. It's really great when you need extra volume to your lashes, though.  

I decided to write this little, quick post because I was trying to start thinking of packing for a trip that I will be going on in the next week or so and didn't want to load my makeup bag with a ton of crap. I don't normally have three posts a week and I wasn't really planning on posting this, but I thought you guys might be interested in my go-to, mini mascaras. I mean, all of these are pretty amazing mascaras. There wasn't one that I didn't like! I hope you guys try these out if you are looking for new mascaras to try or need a new travel-size one to take on vacation! 

Is there a mascara I should try next? Share Below!
