Every makeup aficionado knows the constant anxiety of wondering whether your mascara is going to smudge or run throughout a day at work or a night out with friends. No matter how waterproof the label says the formula is, mascara never seems to be able to withstand a full day or night of wear. Almost every time I come home after going out, I see my mascara smudged under my eyes. That was, until I used the following mascara products.
To prevent the aforementioned mascara disaster, I went hunting for the best mascaras to keep my lashes full of volume, long, and full. I’ve selected the best five mascaras to add to your makeup rotation.
1. This will Benefit your lashes
According to Sephora, this mascara was inspired by hair rollers, hence the name. This is the ever so famous Benefit Roller Lash mascara, which will lure you straight into the line at Sephora in no time, once you’ve heard what it can do. This mascara has a unique feature with it’s “custom designed hooks to catch, lift, and curl even short and straight lashes”. The best thing about it is that it doesn’t smudge, and it has the added bonus of vitamin B5 and serine to condition your lashes.
