CoverGirl's new petal-shaped brush is best used to beef up thin lashes. The formula is creamy so lashes never get stiff or dry, but this does cause the curl to deflate by mid-day. For a longer-lasting hold, spend a little extra time curling lashes in the morning.
Though the mascara technically isn't waterproof, it stayed put through a walk outside in a blizzard—a pretty impressive feat, if you ask us.
Perfect for everyday wear, Rimmel's Wonder'Lash Mascara enhances lashes in a natural, no-makeup makeup kind of way. The argan oil-infused formula keeps lashes from becoming brittle and breakage-prone, which is essential during the winter.
Physicians Formula's new two-part kit includes a lengthening mascara and a fiber formula designed to mimic the look of salon-quality eyelash extensions. Here's how it works: Apply a coat of mascara, swipe a layer of "extensions" on top and finish with another coat of mascara to seal them in. I found the fibers to be a bit messy—those that didn't immediately adhere to my lashes fell around my eye area and cheeks, so it's best to use the kit before applying face makeup. I did, however, like how feathery and full my lashes looked after completing the third step.
Maybelline's innovative, 10-layer bristle brush defines and separates lashes, creating a feminine, fanned-out effect. For best results, stick to two coats. Any more and lashes begin to look spidery.
The latest addition to L’Oréal's Miss Manga collection contains its darkest pigment yet. Like the original, the updated formula is extremely buildable. For major drama and height, I applied about six coats and there wasn't a clump in sight. The intensified color is great for a night out—it looks like you're wearing false lashes.
