Men love long lashes: 5 Best mascaras

By Jessica Padykula

Long, thick lashes are essential for many reasons. How else can you lure him with come-hither glances, wink seductively or flutter your eyes at him successfully? Long, lustrous lashes help define and open up your eyes, and help complete any eye makeup look.

Mascara is also one of the products you can turn to in a pinch, when you don’t have time to apply much else. It’s not ideal, but with some lip gloss, concealer and mascara you’ll be able to achieve a simple, pulled-together look. Here are some of our favourite mascaras for long, luscious lashes.

1. Lancome Definicils High Definition Mascara

This lash-defining mascara works to separate each lash, while also providing noticeable length and volume. It’s not too thick, which means clumping isn’t a problem and it’s comfortable to wear even for those of us who wear contact lenses. It also goes on smooth and makes our eyes really pop.

2. Clinique Lash Doubling Mascara

If you have sparse lashes and need a serious volume boost, Clinique just might have the mascara for you. It does a good job of thickening lashes with just one coat and doesn’t smudge or flake, even at the end a long day. We found this feature particularly helpful because there’s nothing worse than having to meet someone for an after work date with the beginnings of smudgy, racoon eyes.

3. Dior DiorShow Mascara

Not only does this mascara lengthen and add volume, it also leaves lashes with a subtle curl to even further emphasize and define. Get even more curl out of this mascara by using an eyelash curler before application. It goes on smooth, doesn’t dry out and washes clean away without having to scrub with makeup remover.

4. Smashbox Lash DNA Mascara

The double helix shape of this mascara brush had us skeptical at first, but we were won over by how much length and separation we were able to get from it. The brush is shaped to coat every lash, even the tiny ones that sometimes get left behind with other mascaras. This is important because the key to lashes that stand out is making sure that each and every one of them gets a coat of mascara.

yves saint laurent mascara
We were seriously impressed with how much volume this mascara created with only one coat. Lashes are lengthened and thickened without clumping or sticking together. The creamy texture leaves lashes flexible rather than stiff and the effect is pure drama.

    It would be great if you could also include less expensive products. Not all of us can afford to head to the expensive makeup counter at a Mall that is over an hour away. Brands that are available at local pharmacys (Rite Aid, Walgreens) are more accessable. Thanks!

    Hey friends, the best less expensive brand for full, lush lashes has to be Voluminous by L’OrĂ©al

    I use ZOOM LASH from MAC.
    I have sensitive eyes and have eye dryness, for 3 years I struggled, I wasn’t able to wear any eye liner, Mascara and eye makeup. I was dating at that time, and my sweetheart got me MAC Gift for my Birthday. MAC Zoom Lash is amazing, it didn’t hurt my eyes at all.

    Quality Matters. One peice last for 3 months, and it cost me about 21 USD, which is not expensive to invest in safe and looking good.

    ^_^ I would like to try those mentioned too, as long as they can create beautiful lashes.

    MAC opulash is the best. I’ve used the Christian Dior and other super expensive mascaras and by far, opulash is the best.

  10. Mary says:

    I use “Loreal Telescope” and I love it. I have decently long eye lashes to begin with, but with Loreal Telescope my lashes are huge! I always get so many compliments!

  11. Natalie says:

    Its always better to get Mac it lasts forever and its worth the trip too the mall

    Try Rimmel XMAX mascara, it works great and it’s an affordable price. It’s a pink bottle :)
