Best Mascaras — Tried & True Editor Faves
Many makeup artists that I’ve interviewed rely on Dior’s Diorshow Mascara. The thick, flake-free formula glides on smooth and lasts all day. It’s definitely an affordable luxury!
An even more wallet-friendly favorite is L’Oreal’s Power Volume 24 Hour Mascara. Loved by celebrities like Lea Michele and Jennifer Lopez, L’Oreal is a drugstore favorite that definitely rivals luxury brands!
Best Mascara: The Coolest Brushes & Beyond
The brush is the most important part next to the mascara itself, so we love these new high-tech brushes!
Flower’s Zoom In Ultimate Mascara’s wand actually swivels to give you a customized look – whether you want to lengthen, curl or both, it’s up to you. Plus, it’s eco-friendly Drew Barrymore’s line so it’s good for you and the environment.
NYX’s Provocateur Boudoir has two brushes in one. The thick wand is great for thickness and volume while the thinner wand is perfect for your bottom lashes.
Best Waterproof Mascara — No Raccoon Eyes Here!
If you’re planning on going to a pool, beach or just sweating in the hot temps, wearing the best waterproof mascara is a no-brainer. We love Tarte’s Lights, Camera, Splashes 4-in-1 Mascara and it’s adorable leather pouch. It even has an embroidered anchor to get you in the mood for summer!
We also love Urban Decay’s Cannonball Ultra Waterproof Mascara and Essence’s Stays No Matter What 24 Hour Mascara.
