Ever feel like your makeup treats you like a disappointing ex? In other words, it promises a lot but ends up leaving you with nothing?
Finding makeup that works is frustrating, and countless dollars are spent on promising products. To counter this problem, we ran our Ultimate Mascara Challenge in which we tried out hundreds of mascaras. Our verdict? You don't need to break the bank to get fabulous lashes. Read below for three of our eight winners.
Volumizing: L'Oreal Original Voluminous Mascara
Price: $7.29, drugstores
Who it's for: If you want the kind of lashes that make a breeze when you blink, this is for you. It promises five times the volume of your natural lashes and is okay to use on sensitive eyes. See results.
Lengthening: CoverGirl LashBlast Length Mascara
Price: $7.70, drugstores
Who it's for: Those romantics who love to bat their eyelashes at Rhett Butler-types. The brush is extra-long and the formula is lightweight so you get the lengthening effects without feeling like you have on a ton of mascara. See results.
Curling: Clinique High Impact Curling Mascara
Price: $14, department stores
Who it's for: Anyone who has pin-straight lashes. The curved brush allows the formula to go on while setting the lashes in a U-shape. Our model's lashes weren't curled with an eyelash curler beforehand, and the effect is major in itself. See results.
