Before you start rolling your eyes at the thought of another curling mascara that leaves your lashes straighter than before you touched them, let me explain. MAC’s new InstaCurl Lash ($23) not only sports a wand that curves a bit once you push it up onto your lash line, but also completely curves into a hook shape with a twist of the innovative cap. Essentially a one-stop-shop for all your mascara needs, you can twist the cap to “hook” the wand and create a curl or twist it back to create a flat, traditional shape to help reach the outside and inside corners you may have missed and separate any lashes you want more defined (but you probably won’t need to because the shape seriously hugs your lashes)—it’s like you’re getting two mascaras in one.

Aside from its curling capabilities, the formula itself is unmatched. After one use, my lashes were longer and thicker (and of course, curled) with just a few swipes. Plus, if you want to really pack on the drama, another coat is all you need for instant smoldering eyes. While we’re not saying to toss your eyelash curlers once and for all just yet, we’re beginning to see some showstopping innovations that are making us come pretty close.
