Benefit They’re Real! Lengthening Mascara

Dior Diorshow Mascara
Diorshow is another iconic mascara to make it onto many best mascara lists. It promises to provide fuller lashes with a bolder impact, and to also stay fresher longer. This is done with the assistance of microfibers, to create length, and Dior’s AIR-LOCK wiper system, which keeps the formula from being exposed to air.

L’Oreal Paris Voluminous Lash Paradise Mascara
L’Oreal’s Voluminous Lash Paradise mascara is so popular, they claim one tube is sold every five seconds. With even more black pigments, more than 200 bristles, and a formula that provides length and volume, while still feeling soft, it has several key features of a winning mascara.

Glossier Lash Slick Mascara
“Extensions without the extensions.” That’s how Glossier describes their popular Lash Slick mascara. It lengthens and defines, with the help of Japanese fiber technology; a tapered comb brush; and natural shine polymers, which make lashes shinier and sleeker.

Lancôme DÉFINICILS Mascara
Cosmetic classics are just that for a reason — because they are tried and true, and work. Lancôme’s DÉFINICILS touts itself as the #1 mascara for over 16 years, and many would agree. “Natural yet noticeable” is the goal here, and it’s done with the help of grooved bristles which distribute just the right amount of product.
