It’s the first Top Ten Tuesday of the New Year and we’re listing our Top 10 Mascaras. This is definitely a topic I’ve given careful consideration to; I’ve tried hundreds of them. These are the mascaras I’ve rebought over and over again and a few new ones that I will rebuy.

When I evaluate mascara, I usually prefer a volumizing formula, but to be honest, I want length too. And I want a long-last formula with no flakes or clumps. I’m happy to report that each of the mascaras on my list passes the test with flying colors. I love trying out mascaras, don’t you?  There’s always the thrill of discovering a fabulous new one.


My Top 10 Mascaras include (in no particular order):

  1. Dior Diorshow Iconic Mascara (review)
  2. CHANEL Inimitable Waterproof Mascara (review)
  3. COVERGIRL Bombshell Volume by lashblast Mascara
  4. Estee Lauder Sumptuous Infinite Daring Length + Volume Mascara
  5. MAC False Lashes Mascara
  6. Lancôme Définicils HD Mascara
  7. Guerlain Maxi Lash Mascara
  8. Kevyn Aucoin ‘The Mascara Volume‘ Mascara
  9. Bobbi Brown Smokey Eye Mascara (review)
  10. L’Oreal Power Volume Collagen Mascara (review)

There are some new mascaras on my list. COVERGIRL Bombshell Volume by lashblast Mascara is a two-step process. The first coat volumizes, the second coat lengthens lashes. This has quickly become a favorite. And for years I’ve worn Estee Lauder Sumptuous Mascara; now it’s been updated to give a more dramatic length and volumizing effect. I love it! I’ve also just recently been testing the Kevyn Aucoin “The Mascara Volume” Mascara and what’s notable about this one is the amazing brush. It coats every last and coaxes out maximum length.

For easiest mascara removal, I find an oil-based makeup remover is best. My favorites include Lancome ‘Bi-Facil’ Double-Action Eye Makeup Remover, MAC Pro Eye Makeup Remover, although Philosophy Purity Made Simple Cleanser is very effective, too.
