Mascara is a cosmetic commonly used to enhance the eyelashes. It may darken, thicken, lengthen, and/or define the eyelashes. Normally in one of three forms—liquid, powder, or cream—the modern mascara product has various formulas; however, most contain the same basic components of pigments, oils, waxes, and preservatives. The most common form of mascara is a liquid in a tube.

1. Essence | Lash Princess False Lash Effect Mascara | Gluten & Cruelty Free
Price on Amazon 4,99 $
After using Lights, Camera, Lashes by Tarte for the past year, I got tired of breaking the bank over mascara. My sister suggested Essence Lash Princess False Lash Effect and I IMMEDIATELY fell in love. It provides dramatic length and great volume. I can honestly say I can’t stop looking at my eyelashes in the mirror every single day because of how awesome they look. Also, it is very long wearing. I go from an 8 hour work day right to the gym and sweat like crazy…and this stuff doesn’t budge! I love it!!
2. Vivienne Sabó — Classic French Mascara Cabaret Premiere
Price on Amazon 12,95 $
I also have always used a waterproof mascara, in heat and humidity it just stays better, however this has amazing staying power. I often fall asleep without removing makeup, but this is still looking great when I get up and is easily removed by my usual facial cleanser. I have not needed eye makeup remover.
This was by far the best purchase I have made in a long time. Everyone needs to try this!!!
I will add pictures if I can to the review.
Edit- I am now on maybe my 4th tube (the first one is still pretty “fresh” and have tried a few others since buying this (ok, I’m obsessed with mascara!) AND given this as gifts multiple times and this still is by far the best mascara I’ve ever used. I have not gotten the waterproof version even though that is normally what I would go with because this one stays put so well.
Seriously not sure how it is so inexpensive. Love it and everyone I have given this to has then ordered it.
3. L’Oreal Paris Makeup Voluminous Original Volume Building Mascara, Carbon Black, 0.26 Fl Oz
Price on Amazon 6,40 $
At forty-something, I have used dozens of brands of mascara. …From Mary Kay to Cover Girl. I have naturally long lashes, but I am blonde and fair. I need mascara to make my lashes pop. And, I swear this actually adds length onto your lashes. I refuse to get on the fake eyelash bandwagon. Frankly, it sounds like a pain. I don’t think I need them. At least, not with L’Orėal Voluminous Original Mascara.
I rediscovered this mascara a couple years ago. I had worn it as a young adult and somehow lost track of the brand. Never again! I get compliments when I wear it. I even get asked if my lashes are my own.
Criticisms? Sometimes it can come out of the bottle a little gloppy. I just keep a roll of paper towels in the bathroom. When it does look gloppy, I brush it lightly on the paper towel first to take off excess. Simple as that. Otherwise it goes on beautifully. The only other issue is this mascara is a booger to get off. A simple facial wipe may not do the trick without rubbing at your eyes too vigorously. Take it from someone my age, you don’t want to rub at your eyes. That’s how you end up with baggy eyelids and under eyes. Make sure you have eye remover makeup (I use either a cream based one or an organic liquid I found) with your facial tissues (I use Amazon’s Vitamin C wipes and love them). Just remember to take care of your skin after you take off your makeup. Put that moisturizer and under eye cream on before bed. If you do that and stay out of the sun without sunscreen, your face will thank you as you age. And, you will look even better with this mascara for years to come! I’d recommend this product.

5. Maybelline Lash Sensational Washable Mascara, Blackest Black, 0.32 fl. oz.
I purchased this mascara to replace another maybelline mascara that I hated. I had read the good reviews, but I was skeptical. I get Birch box and have gotten some amazing mascaras in it…but I just can’t rationalize spending $20 for mascara. So I tried this. I didn’t like it at first because the wand is plastic…not the brush type, which I prefer. But then I learned how to use the wand…it’s like a combo wand of every type out there! It has you covered from every angle…and man, I love this stuff! My eyes don’t go a day without it. See the picture to see the difference between my eye without it (right) and with it (left ). Buy it!
6. Honest Beauty Extreme Length Mascara + Lash Primer | 2-in-1 Boosts Lash Length, Volume & Definition
I think this might be my new go to mascara.
I have the teeniest tiniest lashes ever, they are straight and stick out from my eyelids and without mascara I look like I have no lashes so it’s a struggle finding mascaras that make my lashes look lush.
Let me start off by saying that the primer is amazing.
As soon as I put it on my lashes grew over twice in length!
It didn’t clump and separated my lashes like whoa( the clumping with these lash fiber or extra lengthening mascaras is always horrendous so that was a wonderful surprise), it dried in about 20 seconds and then I put on the coal black mascara.
Instant fabulous lashes.
So far I have experienced zero flaking after wearing for long periods of time , it hasn’t smudged or melted when I’m dancing up a storm or getting my workout on and the length of my lashes is practically miraculous.
It is not cry proof.
It’s super easy to remove and doesn’t tear out any of my eyelashes though, so that’s another plus!
Also, I have celiac disease and a host of other random allergies and am allergic to SO MANY products it’s ridiculous, but luckily I am not allergic to this magic mascara.
I recently discovered that this doesn’t smudge on my bottom lashes either!
I’m almost 40 and I have never found a mascara that didn’t smudge on my bottom lashes. I’m so oily that even waterproof ones didn’t work!
I stopped wearing it on my bottom lashes for anything but photo shoots after 20yrs old because the smudging made me look like an old lady with terrible makeup skills,but now I can once again rock liner on my bottom lashes!
I included a terrible picture ( I hate getting my picture taken!) and tried to crop it so you can get an idea of how amazing this mascara is( look at those lashes practically touching my brow bone!),because I know I always want to actually see the results of people using the product, so hopefully it helps. 🙂
7. L’Oreal Paris Makeup Lash Paradise Mascara, Voluptuous Volume, Intense Length, Feathery Soft Full Lashes, No Flaking, No Smudging, No Clumping, Mystic Black, 0.25 Fl Oz (Pack of 1)
Price on Amazon 9,40 $
First off, you should know that I’m a make-up fanatic. I buy a lot of it and love to experiment…mostly because I’m always searching for the HG of everything! So I’ve been using this mascara for the last several years. Even during this time, I’ve purchased other brands from designer to drug store, just in case something better is out there. Well for me, there isn’t. I honestly love this mascara. Sure the wand can be a PITA for many people…the tip is hard to reach corner baby lashes…and the tube seems to dry out quickly…BUT those issues are minor for me when I consider the fact that 1) it applies nicely without crazy clumps 2) it’s buildable so if I really want those doll lashes I can add coat over coat and still look great 3) it doesn’t flake all over my face 4) priced right. For the record, I have semi-long yet very thin, sparse lashes
9. Maybelline Full ‘N Soft Washable Mascara, Very Black, 1 Tube
Price on Amazon 4,45 $
HOLY GRAIL MASCARA!!
I have been using this for two years. It is the most incredible mascara I have ever used. For me, nicely done eyelashes are a must. This formula takes some getting used to. I apply a few swipes, comb through with an old wand and then wait a few seconds before adding more. I get incredible results, ranging from natural looking to night out. It’s very versatile. You have to be patient and good at mascara to get this to work well; you cant just quickly dab it on the lashes. I usually spend about 5 minutes getting it just right. And it STAYS ON. I have gone swimming with it on and it rarely comes off. After swimming underwater it doesn’t clump my lashes either- this isn’t even the waterproof version. It is a tad hard to get off at night, as it takes more than just water. I use lotion on a cottonball and it works like a charm to remove any residue. I have never experienced eye irritation because the staying power is so amazing, The only time it’s ever shed is when I used a 6 month old one in a pinch. The lashes also aren’t stiff, theyre pretty flexible with it on. I’ve tried so many mascaras and this one can not be beat. Although I do have naturally dark and full lashes already (and am young) , so not sure how it would work on older people with shorter, more sparse lashes. Would absolutely recommend to anybody, though. Cannot say enough good things.
The first pic is this product at work on a natural day, the second is after swimming (underwater) on a hot day.
