Mascara has the ability to take your lewk from basic to babin’ in under a minute (#truestory), but you need to find the correct brush for your individual lash sitch as not all mascaras will work for you. In fact, each person’s needs are super unique depending on your lash type, budget and what you want to achieve. We’ve got you covered with five of our faves.
NO MAKEUP MAKEUP
Covergirl The Super-Sizer Mascara
This is not your typical mascara brush – it has a tiny plastic head! But the small comb brush is perfect for those who already have long lashes as it doesn’t provide much volume. The tiny spikes help separate your eyelashes and the formula doesn’t clump, flake or smudge. This mascara isn’t buildable so applying multiple coats won’t change the outcome, which makes it great for a more natural eyelash look.
Sportsgirl Game Changer Volume Mascara
Sportsgirl creates banging budget beauty products and this mascara is no different. While this wand has a similar hourglass shape to the Too Faced brush, it has a far more defined head and a tapered end which give you the ability to target the inner corners of your eye and separate lashes. The hourglass-style brush also helps to thicken lashes so this one gives you the best of both worlds. Make sure you apply at least two coats of this mascara to achieve long and luscious lashes.
Essence I Love Extreme Curl & Volume Mascara
This jumbo brush is all about volume so it’s perfect for those with thin or short eyelashes. The extra large plastic wand also has a curved design which helps curl your lashes so it works well for those that are naturally straight. The formula of the Essence mascara is quite thick, so take care when applying and it’s also really pigmented so expect super black lashes. The cherry on top of this mascara is its seriously affordable price!
Nars Climax Mascara
This bristle brush mascara was released only last year but it quickly became a fave for many beauty enthusiasts. The brush on this one is super thick and fluffy, which helps to lengthen and volumise – great for wispy lashes. Unlike the Too Faced formula, this mascara is super light and has an airy and whipped texture so you can seriously layer this one up. Because this formula is buildable, you can create a low-key lewk or dial it up for some seriously wow lashes.
DOSE OF DRAMA
Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara
This cult mascara collectively blew the minds of the beauty industry when it was released, thanks to the hourglass-shaped wand and impressive formula, which includes collagen, to create full, defined and stretched lashes. This brush design is great for straight eyelashes as it helps to curl while the dark black colour of the formula makes your eyes pop. Just keep in mind that the formula of this mascara may get clumpy for some users after a while.
