There is no denying that mascara is a makeup bag essential. Whether your goal is to lengthen, darken or thicken your lashes, there are so many great mascaras available to help you achieve your desired look. I’ve tried several mascaras over the years, and today I’m sharing my top five favorites in no particular order. Keep reading below for my favorites and save this post to your Pinterest board so you can reference it later!
This is the best bargain mascara, in my opinion. For just under $10 (sometimes $6 on sale on Amazon) , this formula helps your lashes look defined and dark.
This is the newer and enhanced formula to the original Voluminous mascara, and I’m a fan. It coats your lashes very well, helping them to appear thicker.
This is a two-step mascara. One side acts as a primer, coating your lashes in a white solution, and the other side adds the length and volume in the form of a black top coat. This is one of my favorite mascaras because while it does take a little bit longer to apply, it really adds the definition to your lashes.
I know the name is pretty cheeky, but the mascara is actually pretty good! It adds volume and length to the lashes. This brand is on the pricier side, but if you’re looking for a more luxurious mascara experience, I’d recommend this one!
This mascara has a nice formula, adding length and definition to the lashes. It’s a nice one coat mascara, but two coats really make your lashes seem fuller.
A few notes: I have not tried the waterproof versions of these mascaras because I prefer non-waterproof mascaras. I would rather the formula comes off easy when it’s time to wash my face. Secondly, I usually purchase mascaras in the darkest color available, usually a color called blackest black. This is the shade I prefer, but if you want a softer look, opt for a mascara in a black brown shade.
Have you tried any of these mascaras? What are your thoughts? What are some of your mascara recommendations?
