Find Your Best Mascara
Beauty products are a few of my favorite things. Use this mascara review and guide of top brands from Benefit cosmetics, L Oreal, Clinique, Estee Lauder and more to choose your best mascara.
The quest for the perfect mascara can be overwhelming, but fun, too.
All you’ve gotta do is turn on the TV for a minute, and you’ll see tons of beautiful mascara ads promising you intense, fake lash drama.
But who delivers? Here is a list of some of the best mascaras, whether you're a gal with a beauty budget or you'll blow the rent for an amazing product!
Lancôme has been pumping out consistently great mascaras for years, and Definicils has been their top seller.
Try as you might, this baby won’t clump, and lengthens and defines every little lash. If it’s volume you are after, you may need to add a volumizing basecoat, though.
This is one of the priciest brands, but worth its weight in lengthy lashes.
Benefit Bad Gal Lash
Volumizing to the millionth degree, Bad Gal has been a consumer favorite for years.
The large brush grabs every lash to separate and pump it up!
Try the new dark blue version to brighten up tired eyes. No waterproof version available as yet, and if it’s length you crave, you may want to use a lengthening primer.
Dior Show Mascara
While Dior Show comes with a hefty price tag, most fans will tell you it’s worth every penny.
This mascara almost triples the volume and length of eyelashes, and stays put without smudging. The large fluffy brush somehow even has a curling effect.
This is one of the absolute best mascaras on the market right now.
The creamy formulation does dry out in the tube, so be sure you replenish frequently – as you should anyway! Available in waterproof, as well.
Bobbie Brown Everything
A favorite of celebrities like Serena Williams, this mascara is a lengthening master with some added volume and more separation. It’s smudge-proof and flake free, with no change of clumping.
Prescriptives Lash Envy
Full, fabulous lashes to be envied. The exclusive Volumatrix Polymer formula boosts lash volume up to 200% for 12-hour wear. Holds curl and fans out lashes to give that falsie look. Works even on skimpy lashes.
Prescriptives Lash Builder
Primers add an extra step, it’s true, but you won’t believe the difference they make – even in mascara! Add a few coats of this lash primer to give your power mascara and extra boost.
