4 Must Have Mascaras

You can’t own just one tube of mascara. We did the dirty work and discovered a few go-tos.

1- Make Up Forever Smoky Extravagant Mascara

  • Where to find: Sephora
  • Price point: You can find this one for around $24.00

We love this one because it adds volume, length, and curl without the clumps. The cone shaped brush has a precision tip that separates lashes minimizing pesky clumps, and the rounded base creates dramatic volume that can be seen from across the room. This is an amazing one for a night out.

2- Kat Von D Immortal Lash 24 Hour Mascara

  • Where to find: On the Kat Von D website
  • Price point: This one is $20.00

This is a great 24-hour wear mascara that lengthens, curls, and coats every lash for a high-drama look. With a three in one spiral brush lashes are separated, thickened from root to end and coated in a thick black formula infused with vitamins A and E to prevent that dreaded crunchy look. The best part is that this mascara will last you all day and night, but unlike waterproof mascara it will never flake and is super easy to remove with a little makeup remover. This is a great one to go from work to happy hour and then some.

3- Benefit Cosmetics Roller Lash Curling & Lifting Mascara

  • Where to find: Ulta
  • Price point: You can buy this gem for $24.00.

Who doesn’t love big hair? Benefit took that classic big hair look and brought it to lashes. This mascara was inspired by hair rollers, it’s SUPER-curling and lifting even when you’re too lazy to use an actual lash curler. How does it do this you ask?? Their patent pending Hook ’n’ Roll brush which features tiny custom designed hooks that actually catch, lift and curl EVERY SINGLE lash. The best part? Their formula contains pro-vitamin B5 and serine, which conditions and softens lashes.

  • Side note: This is our FAVORITE, FAVORITE, FAVORITE (did I say FAVORITE?) mascara. And it is great for anytime use.

4- MAC ‘In Extreme Dimension Lash’ Mascara

  • Where to find: MAC cosmetics
  • Price point: This can be picked up for 23.00

This is a must own mascara because of its lightweight whipped formula that conditions and softens while volumizing, extending and curling the lashes. The best feature of this mascara is that the tip of the brush makes it super easy to grab ahold of those tiny lower lashes in the corners of the eye. Perfect for daily use

💎 Beauty Tip:

Waterproof is great for events and special occasions, it will hold a more dramatic curl and stay fresh for longer, however it’s very harsh on the lashes. This should not be used as an everyday mascara as it can cause lashes to fall out prematurely and break off
