Shopping for mascara? There are tons of choices out there, from tube formulas to volumizing options! Here’s how to find the one that’s just right for you.

Volumizing Pick
Check Price
Infused with fibers for a full, long-lasting look.

For the latest and greatest in mascara, opt for a fiber mascara, which contains tiny threads of rayon or nylon to fill in and elongate your fringe. These fibers bind to your natural lashes for a dramatic look that won’t wear off or run as easily as regular mascaras.

Lengthening Pick
Check Price
Clean product devotees will appreciate the lack of harsh chemicals in this inky formula.

Maybe you only add clean beauty products to your stash—those free from silicones, paraffins and parabens, or perhaps you have super sensitive eyes. This one comes with a primer to layer on before the mascara, to add extra staying power and length.

Budget Pick
Check Price
This formula darkens and adds fullness for a doll-eyed look.

You don’t need to break the bank to find a mascara that delivers seriously dramatic, voluminous effects. The curved wand captures every little lash.
