Mascara is one of those products that can instantly make you look refreshed; it’s no wonder that so many women won’t leave the house without it. To help you find your go-to, we’ve rounded up some of our favorite mascaras that leave you with memorable, lush lashes.
Best For: Faking False Lashes
If the brush for this mascara tells us anything, it’s that our lashes are sure to make a statement. The supersized brush will add so much volume and length to your lashes that people will wonder if you’re wearing falsies. Even better? The ingredients used are all natural.
Best For: Lengthening Lashes
A NewBeauty Beauty Choice Award winner for The Best Lengthening Mascara, this formula lengthens every lash and is clump- and flake-free. It makes sense that this product is beloved by nearly every makeup artist and a long-term staple in our makeup bags.
Best For: Daytime Lashes
If you’re looking for beautifully defined daytime lashes, this mascara is your best bet. The comb-like brush allows you to get gorgeous separated lashes without a clump in sight.
Best For: Stay All Day Lashes
This mascara gives your lashes the “va-va-voom” that you’ve been looking for. The combination of the formula and the plush brush instantly gives you the voluminous lashes you desire. It even has led some happy customers to ditch their lash curlers because it curled them on its own.
Best For: Restoring and Growing Sparse Lashes
Infused with LashFood’s Nano-Peptide Technology, this mascara transforms your lashes from brittle to healthy and strong. It also gives you great volume and length; plus it is semi-waterproof so it will last from breakfast to after-work drinks.
Best For: Aging Lashes
Basically five lash products in one tube (volumizing mascara, conditioning lash primer, lash-enhancing serum, lash tint, and a lash curler), this mascara stays all day and is great for aging lashes. The unique combo brush with a ball at the tip is perfect for bottom lashes and the cushioned cap allows for good grip.
Best For: Smudge Prone Lashes
A waterproof formula that gives great volume, amazing separation and actually strengthens lashes? Sign us up! We love that the thin curved wand helps curl lashes while it coats each one in a shiny lacquer finish.
Best For: Enhancing Short Lashes
This mascara from Per-fékt primes, conditions and enhances even the shortest lashes. What makes it work is the multicoiled brush that grabs onto each lash, even the tiniest ones, and separates them so there are no clumps. Plus, it also contains ingredients that nourish your lashes and helps them grow. The takeaway: this mascara means business. We’re talking lashes that reach your eyebrows here!
Lancôme Hypnôse Star ($28)
Best For: Day-to-Night Lashes
The newest member to Lancôme’s mascara family is a dual-sided brush that helps build volume and lengthen your lashes. Use one side for either volume or length or use both to step up the drama for a nighttime look.
Best For: Enhancing Small Eyes
Sure to make even the biggest mascara aficionado swoon, this two-tone wonder comes with two different brush sizes and two different colors. The larger brush is meant to coat your top lashes with a bold black color and the smaller brush paints your lower lashes with a contrasting color—either blue, brown or plum. The result is sumptuous lashes and bigger looking eyes with just a couple swipes of the wand.
