It’s the one make-up essential we all trust/rely/depend on (delete as appropriate). It can instantly brighten up a tired complexion; fake the ‘I’ve-had-eight-hours-sleep’ look, and simply make you feel put-together. It hasn’t got a wand for nothing – mascara is a thing of pure magic!
But one size doesn’t fit all – you can guarantee every make-up bag features at least one or two. Well we have to be ready for all eventualities, right? Lengthening, volumising, waterproof or all the above, we’ve got it covered…
Lashes looking a little lacklustre? This vegan-friendly mascara is packed with good-for-you ingredients, including a plant-derived thickening agent, and provides the most intense black pigment for high-impact volume and definition - everyone will ask if your lashes are real!
The Koreans lead the way in cosmetic technology, and this multi-tasking mascara does not disappoint. It’s packed with bamboo extracts and peptides to support healthier, fuller lashes, and lengthens and volumises with just a twist of the customisable wand.
Benefit is already a market leader when it comes to mascara, but which one should you try? For longer-looking lashes, opt for They’re Real, choose Roller Lash for super-curled lashes, and for volume give BadGal Bang a go. You can also try layering them to master your own customised look.
If you can’t hit the gym without a slick of mascara, but don’t want it to run down your face after a spin class, try this 100% waterproof formula. The gel-like texture is infused with conditioning collagen and fruit extracts, while the brush features a curved edge to lift and volumise lashes.
Vegan-friendly, organic and designed for sensitive eyes, this soy-infused formula acts as both a lash treatment and mascara. Perfect for building volume, its tapered tree-shaped brush separates, curls and lengthens while soy protein extract smooths and conditions for a luxe lash finish.
Conditioning minerals and moisturising ingredients keep lashes soft and fluttery all day long, while the whipped, mousse-like formula gives you time to build your best volume yet. And the wand’s 600 soft, staggered bristles hold more product to coat every lash in one single stroke, from root to tip.
