To get big, beautiful lashes, you need the ultimate mascara. Whether you're looking to add length, volume, or a mixture of the two, there's a version on the market that will work wonders for your eyes. But, with so many "groundbreaking formulas" and new, vibrating brushes, it can be tricky to pick your optimal lash-enhancer. These five — blogger tested and blogger approved — will help you achieve show-stopping eyes.

YSL Volume Effet Faux Cils Shocking ($30): This is my go-to for big, voluminous lashes. An exclusive, amplified helix brush provides instant drama.

Benefit Cosmetics BADgal Mascara ($19): If you're searching for a big wand, look no further than the Benefit counter. Its BADgal mascara has the heftiest applicator in the industry, and creates intense, jet-black lashes.

MAC Cosmetics Haute & Naughty Lash ($19): Want to take your makeup from day to night? This two-in-one mascara lets you choose between natural and va-va-vroom lashes.

Diorshow New Look Mascara ($28.50): The folks at Dior have developed a breakthrough brush that promises to catch and coat every lash. It's also great at holding a curl.

Urban Decay Big Fatty Mascara ($20): This one's perfection at creating thick lashes. Recently reformulated, it helps keep lashes moisturized while making a bold statement.

Flutteringly flirtatious lashes, here you come!
