Mascara is an absolute beauty necessity — but with so many different products out there, it can be impossible to find what you’re looking for! Luckily, we’re making the shopping process easier for you by showing you some of our favorite lash enhancers.
For us over here at HollywoodLife.com, mascara is more than just a beauty product — it’s a staple, like water or a vanilla latte. We need those black brushes to make our pale little lashes look like nothing short of Bambi eyes. Trust us, if we forgo mascara for a day, suddenly we’re getting barraged with questions like “are you sick?” and “are you feeling ok?” So, since it’s such a beauty staple, allow us to direct you towards some of our top mascara picks — and make sure to check out the gallery below!
Best Mascaras — Department Store Must-Haves
The fantastic thing about mascara is that you can find great options at any price point! That being said, some of our very favorite lash lengtheners can be found in the marble tiled halls of department stores.
For those of you chasing products that professional makeup artists use, try MAKE UP FOR EVER Smoky Extravagant Mascara. This top tier brand’s formulation can’t be beat and the drama you can build with a few coats of this stuff is nothing short of incredible.
Another luxe lash favorite is Giorgio Armani Eyes To Kill Mascara. The brush builds volume like nobody’s business and leaves you looking like a femme fatale. We also love Le Metier de Beaute Anamorphic Lash Mascara because it makes our lashes look longer without making them look like spiderwebs — it conditions them instead. Finally, try out Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara — with a name like that who wouldn’t want to give it a whirl?
Top Drugstore Mascara Finds
We’re also huge fans of mascaras that you can find at your local drugstore — after all, you can’t beat the price and the formulations are still killer. One of our new favorites is AVON MEGA Effects Mascara. The innovative wand is actually a densely packed spiky bristle brush that’s fitted to the shape of your eye. So you literally just brush your lashes up and get instantaneous volume.
We also love CoverGirl Flamed Out Mascara because the specially shaped wand gives us sexy cat eyes with just two coats of product. Also awesome is Maybelline Volum’ Express Falsies Big Eyes Mascara. This mascara is a two-in-one that give us false-looking lashes on both our upper and lower lashes, thanks to two different sized wands (a big one for up top and a little one for your bottom lashes). And for those ladies who love organic makeup but don’t love breaking the bank, allow us to suggest Physicians Formula Organic Wear 100% Natural Origin FakeOut Mascara.
