You can take away our highlighter or even our brow pencils but one product you’ll never pry out of our hands is mascara. The magic of one quick flick or a 1000 coats of mascara enhances our eyes and makes us feel more put together and powerful all at once. Whether you want a natural lift, length or high drama there’s a mascara formula for everyone. Once you find your match it’s like a life long friendship. But while most formulas on the market promise all of these features, which ones actually get the job done? We’re spoiled for choice when it comes to the selection and it can be overwhelming. In this case, the classic favourites come into play. There’s a good reason many of them still are cult favourites as they continue to win our hearts over by helping us achieve the luxurious lashes we dream of.
Scroll below to check out our line up of cult faves that continue to impress us:
1. Too Faced, Better than Sex Mascara
One of the most universally loved formulas is a major bestseller from Too Faced. It’s one of the few mascaras that doesn’t sacrifice long length at the expense of full, thick volume. The unique collagen-fueled formula thickens, lengthens and curls after just one coat. While the hourglass-shaped brush ensures that you can coat every single lash from every single angle, so you can build and enhance as you please.
2. L’Oreal Paris, Voluminous Lash Paradise
A true winner from the drugstore, this amazing mascara rivals many expensive high-end formulas. This long-wear thickening formula doesn’t flake or fall out until you take it off at the end of the day with a heavy-duty makeup remover. Which makes it the perfect summertime choice.
3. Maybelline New York, Falsies Push Up Drama
This drugstore find has a unique cup-shaped bristle and a push up brush that scoop, coat and lift lashes. No curler needed! The creamy formula glides smoothly onto lashes plumping them up for a dramatic volume and flutter. Think of a push-up bra that keeps your lashes in place all day.
4. Marc Jacobs, Velvet Noir Major Volume Mascara
This is heaven for those with sparse lashes. You get all the drama you need in just one fluttery sweep. Let’s not forget the rich carbon-black payoff!
5. Benefit Cosmetics, Roller Lash Mascara
One of the best and most raved about curling mascara ever, you can’t go wrong with this pick. The formula curls and sets even the straightest lashes for all-day hold and definition. You don’t even need an eyelash curler with this water-resistant formula! The brand’s patent-pending Hook ‘n’ Roll brush, has your back as it catches, lifts, and curls every last lash for up to 12 hours.
6. Essence, Lash Princess False Effect Mascara
This mascara was an online sensation when the beauty community got their hands on it. The cone-shaped brush gives Lash Princess its famous, lash-lifting prowess and works staggeringly well on fine, thin, sparse, and stick-straight. Plus it’s super affordable and easy on the pockets.
7. Lancome, Monsieur Big Mascara
For thick, full, reach the sky lashes, Monsieur Big delivers and how. It coats each lash evenly while darkening and lengthening them to perfection. The ultra-plush brush makes works to give you a full, feathery doe-like look.
