I think my obsession with finding the perfect mascara started back in high school when I got my hands on Maybelline’s Great Lash mascara and discovered it gave me raccoon eyes, despite it being the “hot mascara of the moment.” I realized no mascara is created equal, and if I wanted to find out what works best for me, I needed to go out and try as many as I could get my little hands on.
Since then, the hunt for long lush lashes has been a years-long mission, but I can finally say, after trying countless mascaras over the years, I have finally found my top favorite mascaras that don’t clump, flake, or weigh me down. I’ve separated them into 2 categories: Lush and Volume & Length and Definition.
In the Lush and Volume category I have Benefit They’re Real, Too Faced Better Than Sex, L’Oreal Voluminous Carbon Black, Dior Iconic Overcurl, and Urban Decay Perversion for the ability to really make my eyes pop and create drama without clumping or needing to wear falsies.
In the Length and Definition category I have Lancome Definicils, Tarte Lights, Camera, Lashes, and Laura Mercier Full Blown Mascara for giving me the best lengthening lashes I crave all day that are naturally defined, without the smudging. What are some of your favorite mascaras?
