There’s no denying that mascara is a beauty game-changer. Luscious lashes not only feel more alluring, but they also help to open up your face and amplify your eyes.
With this in mind, five of our writers have revealed the mascara they couldn’t face the day without. From the perfect lengthening formula, to the blackest of black shades, here are their tried-and-tested favourites.
“I love bold, dramatic lashes, but hate the fuss of falsies. That’s why Bobbi Brown’s Extreme Party is my go-to, because it gives instant volume, intense colour and unbelievable length. I also love that this formula is smudge-proof and long-wearing.”
“At the moment I’m loving Marc Jacobs’ Velvet Noir Mascara. Not only is the colour the blackest shade of black, but it also makes my lashes look long and full. What more could I want?!”
“I regularly chop and change my make-up routine depending on the season and what’s new, but I always come back to Benefit’s They’re Real!. With just a few swipes this the glossy, jet-black formula lengthens, curls, lifts and separates, without flaking or clumping.”
“Kevyn Aucoin’s The Volume Mascara is a staple in my makeup bag. Just as its name suggests, this innovative mascara uses lash-building fibres to help thicken, separate and lengthen even the tiniest of lashes. A quick slick and I’m ready to tackle whatever the day throws at me.”
“If, like me, you’re after longer, fuller, dramatic lashes, then Estée Lauder’s Sumptuous Infinite is a winner! The formula is also sweat and humidity resistant, which makes it perfect for post-workout touch-ups.”
