Living with thin, short lashes is always a challenge. With the help of cosmetics it is possible to make your lashes appear thicker and longer, however, many products fall short of their promises. To help you pick the best, we have tried and tested a number of mascaras. These are our top picks.

1. Urban Decay Cosmetics Perversion Mascara

Although the bristles are thick, they are also soft. This enables the wand to apply an even layer of mascara across your lashes, which is ideal for thickening lashes all the way from the bottom up.

2. Yves Saint Laurent Babydoll Mascara

One of the best products we found for lengthening lashes, this product also does a good job at thickening them. As an added bonus, the mascara is perfumed with a pleasant scent.

3. Fairydrops Scandal Queen Waterproof Mascara

Every woman needs a waterproof mascara that is no less effective than the rest she might have in her collection. Besides being highly water-resistant, this mascara is designed to prevent clumping. It comes with a bubble wand that is curved in three places, which makes sure all lashes are evenly coated. This mascara is excellent for adding volume while also helping you with length.

4. Shiseido Full Lash Volume Mascara

Another mascara with a curved wand, this product is excellent for covering lashes from the base to the tip. The formula includes a curl-up wax, which leaves the lashes curled all day, no matter how much mascara you apply.

5. L’Oréal Voluminous Lash Paradise Mascar

As a budget option, the effects from this mascara are superb. The wand has more than 200 bristles, which ensure that every lash receives the same amount of mascara. This is combined with a deep black tone for a stunning final result.

6. Dior Diorshow Pump ’N’ Volume Mascara

This versatile mascara is perfect for both everyday lashes and special events when you want extra volume and length. Just squeeze the base of the bottle to send a pump of the formula to the brush. A single squeeze (or perhaps just a slight squeeze) is enough for casual wear, whereas several pumps will give you the amount you need for a thick coating.

7. Lancôme Monsieur Big Mascara

You will immediately notice that this product comes with a much larger brush than normal. As you would expect, this leads to a thick application of mascara for greater volume. Better yet, it lasts all day without flaking, smudging, or running.

8. Rimmel London Shake It Fresh Mascara

A major problem when you are looking for more volume from your mascara is clumping. This product overcomes the problem by including a shaker feature inside the bottle that mixes the mascara before every use.

An Alternative

Mascara will only get you so far, especially when it comes to lengthening lashes. For long, full lashes that look natural, your best option is lash extensions. These can be difficult to apply alone, but with a professional service you can receive lashes that last, in a style that suits you.
