If there’s one thing you shouldn’t leave the house without, even on a no makeup day, it’s mascara. Literally like magic wands, they have the ability to instantly add volume, lengthen and create drama for bigger, sexier eyes in seconds.
Here are five mascaras the Clozette team swears by.
Benefit They’re Real! Mascara
If you want falsies without the hassle, this one is for you. The spiky brush that features a unique dome tip allows you to grab each and every lash (yes, even the tiny ones at the corners of your eyes) from root to tip and deliver the long-wear formula. Expect lashes that are lifted, curled and separated with va-va-voom volume.
Laneige Jet Curling Mascara
Short, limp lashes that won’t stay curled? This mascara is just what you need. Its revolutionary air gel formula allows for smoother application and intense colour without making your lashes brittle. And the 3D Jelly Rubber Brush means you won’t be caught with your mouth open wiggling it this way and that to get fanned out lashes. One swipe horizontally will curl and add volume, and using it vertically will help define each and every lash.
Maybelline The Falsies VolumExpress
The patented spoon-shaped brush mimics the contour of the eye and adheres itself to the lashes making application a breeze. Go for a natural-lashes-just-much-better look with a single coat or layer on several coats for the falsie effect. Bonus: It won’t break the bank.
Urban Decay Perversion Mascara
The creamy formula glides through your lashes coating each strand with intense, rich, black pigment for long, luscious lashes and its nourishing formula helps protect and promote lash growth. We love the fact that we can add on extra volume without it looking clumpy just before we head out to cocktails – even after wearing it the entire day.
Givenchy Noir Couture Mascara
Whenever we feel the need for extra oomph, we find ourselves reaching for this mascara. The triple spiral brush grabs lashes right from the roots to lengthen and volumise them for a wide-eyed effect and the Lash Booster Expert Complex protects and strengthens lashes.
