Don’t you hate it when lengthening mascaras clump up, so instead of getting long and full lashes, you get this spidery-streaky-gunky mess that ruins your concealer and eyeshadow and pretty much your entire morning?
We’ve been there, and we feel your pain. That’s why we found 5 lengthening mascaras that are a dream to apply. They glides on, catches even the shortest and thinnest lash, and then miraculously stays in place the rest of the day.
The brush separates and coats lashes — yes, even the thinnest ones! And unlike many thickening mascaras, this one doesn’t clump or smudge. So even if it doesn’t give that much drama or length, we love the simplicity of application. Some days, you just want a mascara that you can apply quickly and trust to stay in place the rest of the day.
If you want drama, then reach for this mascara. Beauty reviews say it all, with phrases like marvelous, terrific, sexy, favourite mascara of all time — mainly because of the incredible volume and curl it gives with one swipe of its signature bushy brush. Another reason we love this mascara: the inky black colour that instantly defines the eyes.
How can you not love this mascara? You get amazing fullness and volume, and it’s 100% waterproof. On a very hot, humid day — and living in Singapore, that means basically all the time — you know that it won’t smudge or smear. Yes, yes, oh yes!
If you’ve got thin and short lashes, then reach for this magic wand: the bristles come in different lengths to catch and lengthen even the shortest, thinnest, sparsest set. Beauty reviews say it’s worth the extra dollars — Chanel does not come cheap — especially if you’re the kind of girl who doesn’t have the time or patience to reach for a lash curler and lash primer every time.
The problem with many mascaras is that reapplication usually leads to a lot of caking and clumping. But somehow this formula is better the second time around. Apply in the morning for naturally long, separated lashes then go back again during your midday makeup touchup or just before you leave the office for a date.
