Mascara has always been one of those products that I’ve had the most trouble with. Finding one that actually lives up to the promises it claims is quite tricky – it’s not like you can just walk into Sephora and swatch it like you could with a lip color or blush. You really have to wear a mascara for a few hours to see how well it holds up. Thankfully, through countless amounts of trial and error, I’ve actually found 5 mascaras that I absolutely adore. They deliver on all of their promises, and make my lashes look amazing in many different ways.
Lorac Pro + Fiber Mascara* | This is the mascara I reach for when I’m wanting super thick, voluminous lashes. Just a coat or two of this and you’d think I was wearing falsies.
Tarte Lights, Camera, Lashes | I really like this mascara for everyday wear. It does a little bit of everything – length, volume, curl – without being too bold for my usual daytime makeup.
Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara | This is a mascara that received a ton of hype when it first came out, and I have to say that it totally lives up to ever promise. This mascara really fans out your lashes, giving them length and a bit of a curl that lasts all day long.
L’Oreal Miss Manga Voluminous Mascara | Miss Manga has been my favorite drugstore mascara ever since it first came out. I’ve gone through countless amounts of tubes, and will continue to purchase it as a staple in my makeup collection. It’s all I need for big, bold lashes and really helps make them look thicker and more defined.
Benefit They’re Real Mascara | Ah, the good ol’ standby. This mascara does it all – thickens, curls, lengthens, adds volume. It’s basically lash extensions in a tube, which is probably why there is such a big hype around this mascara.
