If there’s one universally flattering makeup product that looks good on everyone, it would have to be mascara. It goes with every makeup look (whether no-makeup makeup or full-on glam) and can open up the eyes (especially for chinitas like myself!). When choosing a mascara, you have to take into consideration the lashes you have and the look you want to go for. There are various formulas made for different types of lashes, like lengthening mascaras for short lashes and volumizing mascaras for thin or sparse lashes. Here are some of the best ones that you should definitely check out:
Benefit Cosmetics BADgal BANG! Volumizing Mascara
You know a volumizing mascara is doing its job when your lashes look heavy but actually feel light AF. The BADgal BANG! Mascara from Benefit contains aero-particles derived from space technology, which creates massive volume without weighing down the lashes. Its Slimpact! brush is also designed to reach root-to-tip, corner-to-corner, and upper and lower lashes so you won’t have a hard time layering the product on.

If any product claims to be ‘better than sex,’ then it must be that good. Too Faced has proven just that with their Better Than Sex Mascara, which creates the most luscious, dramatic, and volumized lashes possible. The hourglass-shaped brush coats each lash with a formula that thickens, lengthens, and curls for mind-blowing lashes each time!

Designed for runway makeup, the Diorshow Mascara gives the effect of lash extensions with just a few swipes.

The mascara may be a bit pricey, but it’s sulit because it stays fresh until the last use, thanks to the AIR-LOCK wiper system that prevents the formula from drying out in the tube.
