8 Lengthening Mascaras That Make False Lashes Obsolete
We're no fair-weather mascara fans. We search high and low for the absolute best formulas that lift and plump our lashes all while making us look like a Disney princess IRL. No, mascara isn't something we blindly grab from the store with a carefree "This will do" attitude. When we choose a tube, we mean business. The products we're rounding up today are Byrdie editor–approved and ensure a doe-like appearance with their clump-free formulas and magic wands (we can't help ourselves with these princess allusions). Still in search of a miracle mascara? Look no further than our top picks below.
Giorgio Armani Eccentrico Mascara ($32)
I was recently introduced to this mascara and immediately fell in love. It's got a nice big Velcro brush (so genius) that grabs on to every single lash and administers a thick inky formula that isn't clumpy or sticky. My lashes look insanely long after just a coat or two.
Marc Jacobs Beauty Velvet Noir Major Volume ($26)
Smudge-proof? Check. Volumizing? Check. Lengthening? Double-check. This mascara has everything you're looking for and then some for mile-high lashes. Fun fact: This mascara was inspired by Marc Jacobs's mom, who used to scrape velvet from a black ribbon and apply the particles to her lashes to make them look thicker.
