Following up my new blog post series in which I choose the best products in different beauty categories, this time I put to the test a bunch of high-end and drugstore mascaras to see which ones actually make eyelashes look longer while giving them gorgeous volume and a look of fake lashes. After weeks of testing and trying many, many different mascaras, I have selected six mascaras that in my opinion are the finest products on the market. They are all unique on their own, but they all give the effect of perfect eyelashes.
Maybelline Total Temptation Washable Mascara
Loved by everyone, Maybelline Total Temptation Washable Mascara builds defined eyelash volume and creates irresistibly soft, separated, full lashes coat after coat. The product features a creamy and whipped formula enriched with coconut extract to nourish lashes. It is one of the best drugstore mascaras I have ever used as it does everything you expect from a fine product at an affordable price point. Personally, I prefer washable to waterproof mascaras, so I like how this one is not stubborn on my lashes and can be very easily removed when I wash my face.
IT Cosmetics Superhero Mascara
It Cosmetics Superhero Mascara is a game-changing product that’s clinically shown to give your lashes super volume, super length and super elastic stretch in just one coat! Developed with plastic surgeons, this mascara is skincare for lashes. The proprietary Elastic Stretch Technology stretches the look of lashes wider and longer, and wraps each individual lash in a volume-boosting, lengthening, ultra-conditioning black cape of power and colour for your strongest, thickest, most defined results. Powerful lash-lifting polymers, volumizing collagen, strengthening biotin, proteins and peptides combined with super black pigment and the lash-changing power brush work together to coat every lash from base to tips—lifting lashes while separating them to create a fuller lash line and ensure that no lash is left behind. I love how I need just a couple of seconds to apply this product because its super-buildable formula literally takes lashes to new heights just in a couple of swipes!
L’Oréal Voluminous XFiber Mascara
XFiber from L’Oréal is a two-step mascara system with maximum fiber concentration for extreme volume and length. First, I prime lashes with black primer to build instant volume and depth on each lash. Next, I apply fiber-infused mascara with 20x more lengthening fibers for extreme length. This mascara is a great product that adds a little bit of fanciness into your makeup routine for a reasonable price.
Limited-Edition Mary Kay Lash Love Mascara
Limited-Edition Mary Kay Lash Love Mascara is not only an amazing beauty product that defines lashes but also gives back. The formula makes lashes look naturally flawless, soft and healthy while the flexible, sculpted brush separates and coats them. Mary Kay is committed to bringing an end to domestic violence, so brand donates $1 from each sale of theLimited-Edition Mary Kay Lash Love Mascara to The Mary Kay Foundation, which supports women’s shelters and survivors of abuse.
Yves Saint Laurent Vinyl Couture Mascara
YSL Vinyl Couture Mascara is a luxurious, intense, super shiny colour for lashes. Its formula gives lashes length, volume and curl with a very deep, saturated colour. The liquid lash colour frames eyes with high impact pigment without compromising the sleek and definition. I love this product because it truly feels like no other on my lashes – with shocking colour from root to tip, this high-sheen mascara ensures lashes make a strong statement with every wink. Moreover, Vinyl Couture Mascara comes in eight colours allowing for a more playful, but still very sophisticated and edgy look.
Pixi Beauty LashLift 188
Pixi Beauty LashLift 188 is a unique 2-in-1 dual chamber that contains a larger wand for volume and a finer precision wand to coat every one of your +188 lashes. Together, the brushes create volume, length and curl for an eye-opening effect and the ultimate false-lash look! Some of the key ingredients of this mascara are castor oil (which I swear by) to condition lashes and promotes fullness, polypeptides to nourish and fortify as well as panthenol to moisture. The formula is very pigmented for maximum effect, so I always start with volumizing brush at lash root and continue to tips of top lashes, fanning outer lashes out toward temple to create length and volume. Then I use precision brush to coat hard-to-reach lashes of the inner and outer corner eye as well as bottom lashes for detail and curl.
