The Rankings


Giorgio Armani Eyes to Kill

Our Score

Create some drama in your look with Eyes to Kill. Armani's Microfil technology boosts lash texture, while micro-waxes and a fineness agent create a lasting effect.

Maybelline Great Lash Mascara

Our Score

A mascara that conditions as it thickens your lashes, Maybelline's Great Lash Mascara is the most well-known drugstore mascara.


L'Oreal Voluminous Volume Building Mascara

Our Score

Build four-times fuller lashes with this drugstore staple. L'Oreal's mascara is as easy on your eyes as it is on your wallet, using a blend of panthenol and ceramide-R to condition your lashes. A great basic mascara for daily use.

Benefit BADgal Waterproof Mascara

Our Score

Benefit's gel-based waterproof formula will stand up to the wear and tear of your day. Flake-free, easy application with an extra-long wand makes this a solid daily option.

Benefit They're Real! Mascara

Our Score

False lashes now come in a tube! San Francisco's favorite makeup brand, Benefit, has created a mascara that will give you dramatic volume, length, lift and separation. Bristles on the wand's domed tip add an extra boost to thin, short lashes.

bareMinerals Flawless Definition Mascara

Our Score

Users rave about this bareMinerals mascara's ability to define and lengthen lashes with its 360-degree comb-like wand. Good for sparse lashes, and great for you: no flakes, smudges, parabens or sulfates.

Bobbi Brown Intensifying Long-Wear Mascara

Our Score

Raccoon eyes be-gone! Bobby Brown's mascara will work and play as hard as you do, using a tiny brush to create a natural look that holds up for 16 hours of smudge-free use. This mascara passes the sob test but is easily removed with warm water.

Chanel Inimitable Mascara

Our Score

Look no further for a Jill-of-all-trades mascara. Chanel's Inimitable mascara will create volume, length, curl and separate your lashes with its dense brush, all while conditioning your lashes with its special pro-vitamin B5 formula.

Lancôme Hypnôse Drama Mascara

Our Score

Pick up the wow factor with this high-volume mascara. The gently S-shaped wand and thick bristles are guaranteed to add life to your lashes in one stroke, and Lancome's highly saturated waxy formula with pro-vitamin B5 make this a frequent favorite in best-of lists.

Lancôme Définicils High Definition Mascara

Our Score

Formulated to give you the long, defined lashes you've always desired, this award-winning mascara will coat your lashes in layers of perfection. Evenly-spaced, grooved bristles provide uniform application and Lancome's specially designed polymers provide definition without clumping.
