1 Urban Decay Perversion

This mascara is both lengthening and volumizing—and leaves your lashes looking awesome. Because it's not too "wet," it lets you pile on coat after coat after coat with no flaking and no clumps. And it's super black. Basically it's perfect.


2 Cle de Peau Perfect Lash Mascara

One editor described it as "long, curled, thick perfection. Oh, and it doesn't flake." Did we mention it's waterproof?


3 L'Oreal Butterfly Effect

This awesome drugstore find is a win across the board—it stretches and extends lashes like wings and leaves them longer than you've ever seen.

4 Too Faced Better Than False Lashes

The name pretty much says it all. Use the fiber extreme for extra oomph (and to extend your lashes), then finish with this to capture every lash. EVERY ONE.


5 Buxom Vanity Lash Mascara

While the volumizing mascara is pretty awesome, it's really all in the brush. With seven options ranging from "Big and Bushy" to "Curl and Countour," you can pick your perfect brush for the look you're going for. And that's awesome.


6 Diorshow Mascara

There's a reason this is used by makeup artists the world over. The award-winning mascara has been a cult favorite for ten years, creating awesome volume for lashes that will make you want to blink, like, all the time. (But don't. That looks weird.)

A tried-and-true favorite, this unmistakable orange tube is the best for creating thick, full lashes. And it's under $10. Need we say more?
