The asymmetrical brush takes some getting used to, but once you do, you'll achieve perfectly fanned out lashes every time. The only downside (if this can even be considered a downside) is that the waterproof formula is so durable, you'll need a powerful makeup remover to take it all off. If your lashes appear dry or brittle afterwards, apply vaseline or coconut oil with a Q-tip before bed.
If it's volume you're after, you can't go wrong with NYC's latest, especially considering it's priced at a very wallet-friendly $5. To get more length out of the formula, thoroughly curl your lashes first.

The most recent addition to Rimmel London's SandalEyes collection features an hourglass-shaped brush that makes it easy to grab every single lash. The results are long and piece-y, doll-like lashes reminiscent of Twiggy's iconic look from the 1960s.
Maybelline's new Colossal mascara contains twice the collagen and features the brand's biggest brush yet. In addition to fulfilling its promise of providing major, clump-free volume, the mascara also delivers a good amount of length. Due to the sheer size of the brush, application can get messy, so a gentle approach is key.
