Sometimes you’re born with perfect lashes, and sometimes you just find the right mascara that can lengthen, volumize, curl, and thicken. So even if you have thin, sparse and invisible lashes (God, why me?!) these mascaras can instantly create lashes that you wish you had, and make them look so natural too! Were you born with them or is it just mascara? Nobody but you will ever know.
Nars Climax Mascara
This is a magic wand, literally. The full ribbed bristles grab every lash and give it a full list and curl, with zero lumps at all. And for some amazing reason, its formula can give you all that volume without clumping or flaking.
L’Oréal Paris Voluminous Lash Paradise Washable Mascara
The hourglass shape isn’t just for fun: the longer bristles deposit more pigment, and the smaller pigment deposit less. The result is you can weave the wand to work with your own personal eyelash length and lengthen or thicken depending on where you need it most.
Lancôme Monsieur Big Mascara
If you have hooded eyelids or monolids, you know the hassle of mascara ending up all over your upper eye area. You need a clump-free, fast-drying formula – and this baby is your best bet. The chunky brush thickens even the thinnest lashes and simultaneously combs out clumps.
Benefit Cosmetics BadGal Bang! Volumizing Mascara
This high-tech mascara uses space technology to add tons of volume without feeling thick or heavy. It’s perfect for thin lashes that tend to look very spidery or clump together, or for women who wear contact lens or have sensitive eyes. And since it lasts for 36 hours (not that we advise wearing makeup that long) you can go from day to night without having to reapply.
Tarte Maneater Voluptuous Mascara
We love this mascara’s super wiggly brush, that lengthens and curls even thin lashes and then makes them look extra thick and sexy with its jet-black finish. “When I’m too lazy to do any makeup – even eyeliner – I just apply BB cream and this mascara. The thick, smokey lashes make my eyes look so big and wide awake even if I don’t apply anything else,” says one beauty review.
Covergirl Clump Crusher Extensions Mascara
A lot of volumizing mascaras become a thick, goopy mess when you layer them, but this mascara was actually meant to hold up under two coats or more! One swipe defines your eyes, two swipes adds definition, and three swipes is dangerously sexy! Can’t say you weren’t warned.
Urban Decay Perversion Mascara
This is the best mascara for very short lashes. The special wand catches on to every lash, separating and defining them, while thickening them with every swipe. It’s the easiest and fastest way to define your lashes without wearing falsies!
IT Cosmetics Superhero Elastic Stretch Volumizing Mascara
Weak and brittle lashes get both definition and strength from this special mascara. It contains peptides and proteins and lash-lifting polymers. Think of it as wearing a mascara and a lash serum at the same time.
Pixi by Petra Lash Lift
This dual-chamber mascara means business: it comes with a volumizing brush for your top lashes and a smaller precision brush for the thin, sparse and hard-to-reach lashes. Perfect for anyone who’s got baby lashes that always get left behind!
