The Ride-or-Die Mascaras That We Can't Live Without

Mascara can make or break an entire makeup look.

If it's too clumpy, not lengthening enough or is simply made with a bad formula, it can lead to a great big mess. The last thing any of us want to deal with is mascara leaving marks on our eyes or not being able to come off! We've been on the hunt for the perfect mascaras that can do it all. Keep scrolling for the ride-or-die mascaras that we can't live without.

Tarte Cosmetics Maneater Voluptuous Mascara: $10 (originally $23!)

We first tried this mascara over a year ago and have been obsessed with it ever since. Not only does it increase volume, length and curl status, but it'also made of some pretty great ingredients like jojoba and carnauba wax. The brush is made with over 500 bristles, making the application super easy.

Winky Lux So Extra Mascara: $18

Winky Lux just arrived on our radar, and we have no clue how we survived for so long without the brand. In addition to their killer lip products (which we love), they have a killer mascara. Crafted with a butterfly bristle brush, it ensures you're left with clump-free and voluminous lashes.

Kevyn Aucoin Indecent Mascara: $28

Kevyn Aucoin released his Indecent Mascara earlier this year and we've been using it non-stop since. If you're looking for length in your lashes, this is the product you absolutely need to buy. Not only does it instantly make your lashes longer and fuller, but the formula itself promotes eyelash growth.

Item Beauty Lash Snack Mascara: $14

Our girl Addison Rae started Item Beauty, so when we heard about Lash Snack we knew we needed to get our hands on it. And guess what? It's just as good as everyone is saying on TikTok! Say goodbye to smudges and flakes, and hello to a formula full of castor seed oil, glycerin and coconut oil.

Benefit Cosmetics They're Real! Lengthening Mascara: $26

Benefit's They're Real mascara has been along for years and years and to this day remains one of our all-time faves. Its formula is meant to last all day and night long, and we can tell you it totally does. Our favorite part has to be removing it though. Other mascaras can be damaging, but this easily and painlessly comes off.

Youngblood Outrageous Lashes Mineral Lengthening Mascara: $30

While $30 is quite a hefty price tag for a small tube of mascara, hear us out when we say it'so worth it. Instead of drying out your lashes or even stripping them, this formula is hydrating and conditioning. Plus, you won't have to deal with flakiness or clumps.

Charlotte Tilbury Pillow Talk Plush Up Lashes! Mascara: $29

Can Charlotte Tilbury adopt us please? We're seriously obsessed with everything she comes out with, including her Pillow Talk mascara (which comes as no surprise because the entire Pillow Talk collection is fab). If you're looking for a mascara that will both lift and curl, here it is.
