Does anybody do mascaras better than Benefit Cosmetics? We think not. One of the best mascaras in the game, this one is extra volumising. Just a single coat of it automatically creates intense volume and length. The best part about this product is that, unlike most mascaras which clump upon layering, it refuses to clump. 3 coats on and your lashes will be as dramatic as your life!
