10 of the best mascaras for epic lashes

Our friends at price comparison site Cosmetify give the skinny on the best lash-boosting mascaras

Let’s face it, there’s no shortage of mascaras that claim to be ‘lash enhancing’ on the market – and with brands producing bigger and more convincing campaigns than ever before, who’s a gal supposed to trust?

We can bet our bottom dollar that you or someone you know has fallen victim to a lavishly-packaged mascara that promises the world when it comes to lengthening your lashes – ourselves included. But the reality? Clumpy, flaky lashes that just look a little, well, dull. But hey, at least the packaging was Instagrammable right…right!? *laughs nervously*

After sharing the same frustrations, we decided test out some of the most-talked about mascaras (a hard job we know, but someone had to do it) to see which of the formulas actually do what they say on the packet. Spoiler: yes, that Too Faced mascara made the cut.

Benefit Badgal Bang Mascara

This cult-favourite mascara provides noticeably dramatic length and volume, making it worth those extra pennies. With a 36-hour wearing formula, this mascara gifts your lashes with a long-lasting statement look that doesn’t flake off half way through the day.

Hourglass Caution Extreme Lash Mascara

Simple yet effective, this Hourglass mascara wears easily without causing irritation (something that sensitive skin sufferers will seriously appreciate). Its cruelty-free formula gives your lashes an enviable amount of length that will have people wondering if you’re just really good at apply false lashes.

Too Faced Better Than Sex

Dubbed as the Holy Grail of mascaras, this Too Faced must-have provides an eye-opening finish that will literally turn heads. Film-forming polymers and collagen work together in synergy to provide a smudge-proof finish that will take you through even the hottest of situations.

Charlotte Tilbury Full Fat Eyelashes Glossy Black

This 5-in-1 formula is Charlotte’s bestselling, award-winning mascara that graces the makeup kits of celebs and consumers alike. You only need to look at any Charlotte Tilbury model to see just how drastically this mascara can transform your natural lashes.

NYX Professional Makeup Worth The Hype Volumizing Mascara

Sure, this may be a wallet-friendly high street brand, but don’t be fooled. Complete with a tapered brush, this NYX mascara reaches even the smallest of lashes to ensure a full-fan look that can be worn throughout the day and into the night.

NARS Cosmetics Climax Mascara

Synonymous with professionalism, NARS know a thing or two when it comes to creating cult beauty products – and their latest mascara is no exception. Adding instant drama to your lashes, this lightweight mascara is not to be missed.

Maybelline Mascara Lash Sensational

Another high street favourite amongst the Cosmetify team. This Maybelline formula glides easily on and can be layered up for a totally personalised look that makes a serious impact. Better still, its curved brush makes the application process even easier and is mess-free.

Delilah Volumising & Defining Mascara Carbon

We wanted volume and Delilah delivered exactly that. This body-building mascara features a Y-shaped brush that captures every lash for a defined, layered look. We were particularly impressed with the inclusion of olive wax which over time works to soften and nourish your natural lashes.

L’Oreal Paris Castor Oil Enriched Paradise Volumising Mascara Black

We’re big fans of cosmetics that do good a well as look good, which is why this mascara from L’Oreal Paris is must-have steal. Caster oil keeps your lashes feeling healthy and soft whilst the rest of the formula works to enhance and volumise the look of your lashes throughout the day.

Yves Saint Laurent Luxurious Mascara for False Eyelash Effect

Fed up of applying falsies? Yeah, us too. Luckily, the Yves Saint Laurent Luxurious Mascara for False Eyelash Effect is the perfect tool when you’re after showstopping lashes in a flash. Within just two coats, you can expect to see dramatic results that exaggerate the look of your natural lashes.

    I dont like mascaras or fake lashes, extensions etc. I am for a natural look . So i tried Dermal MD eyelash growth serum. I'm impressed as it works in less then a week i noticed my eyelashes got longer. I recommend this product with no hesitation✅✅
