Mascara has always been one of those products I never leave the house with. Whether you’re trying to pull yourself together each morning or accentuate your dramatic winged liner, sometimes a little mascara makes a world of difference. Personally, I’m a huge fan of voluminous lashes. They are perfect for opening up my eyes and making them appear bigger. Especially if you’re not a liner fan or too busy to fuss over it in the morning, going for voluminous lashes is another great way to being attention to the eyes. After all my testing and trying, here are all the formulas that have passed the test. They each deliver some serious volume.
My Mascara Favorites
Starting from the most big, voluminous lashes to a more subtle daily look, here are all my favorite mascaras.
Too Faced Better than Sex: If you’re looking for seriously huge lashes, this one is for you. Verging on the clumpy look, this mascara prides itself on delivering 1,944% more volume. So, if you’re looking for drama definitely give this one a try. It’s got a water-proof version too.
YSL Volume Effect Faux Cils: This mascara has been my most recent addition to my collection and it has yet to disappoint. In addition to volume, this gives incredible thickness to the lashes and even some great length as well. With its amazing brush, you can seriously build-up the volume. This makes its great for all day and perfect for touch ups at night.
Tarte Lights, Camera Lashes Mascara: This has been a longtime favorite of mine. Obviously it’s got great volume, but what makes this one unique is that it is really lengthening as well. It also never gets clumpy on my lashes, so you get the best of both worlds. It has got great lasting power too, so the lashes you begin the day with are those you end the night with.
Clinique High Impact Mascara: This has got to be one of my favorite day mascaras. Having a awesome, formula, it never lets me down. It also seems to get better as time passes, so if you’re looking for voluminous, fanned out, clump free mascara, choose this one.
L’Oreal Voluminous Lash Paradise: This is my newest drugstore addition to my mascara collection. Although the volume is not quite as dramatic as the perviously mentioned formulas, this mascara is perfect for a fluttery look. It gives thickness at the base but wispy, length at the ends.
L’Oreal Voluminous Million Lashes: This mascara is one of my favorites, not because of how it looks by itself, but because of how well it pairs with other formulas. On its own it gives great length and separation, but when paired with a clumpy formula it helps by combing out the clumps without destroying volume. You’re left with super voluminous lashes with great length and no clumps!
Mascara is one of my favorite makeup products and definitely something I can’t live without. If you haven’t tried any of these formulas, your missing out. Each and everyone of these mascaras are great, so hopefully you find a new favorite! Let me know in the comments below what you’re favorite mascara is.
