Six Mascaras That Actually Work

There are about a million different mascaras on the market, and they all promise the same result: voluminous, sky-high lashes. If you ask your friends, each one of them is likely to have a different favorite that they swear is the best.

It's all so overwhelming.

Earlier this winter, I was in a real eyelash slump. No magic mascara wand seemed to help my lashes reach their full potential. So, I set out on a quest to find mascaras that actually work, and that—in the case of prestige brands—are actually worth their price tag.

Click through to shop six mascaras—three from prestige brands and three from drugstore brands—that passed my test. You're bound to find the perfect one!

The Verdict:

Maybelline's Great Lash Mascara is one of the most popular on the market, but for some reason it just doesn't seem to do anything for my lashes. 

I am, however, a big fan of the brand's latest offering: Volum' Express. For volume, you can't beat it. I like to use this after I've applied a length-focused mascara (like the aforementioned Diorshow).
