BH Cosmetics Bliss Lash Mascara

BH Cosmetics - Bliss Lash Mascara

MSRP: $5.99 Size: 0.44 oz/13 g. Vegetarian but not vegan (has beeswax). Lots of length & volume. I had people ask if my lashes were real! Recommend just one coat for this one. Slightly sticky formula made lashes hard. Despite this, I loved the mascara - so much length! Read full review.

Available at: bhcosmetics.com, ULTA.


e.l.f. Waterproof Lengthening & Volumizing Mascara

e.l.f. Waterproof Lengthening & Volumizing Mascara

MSRP: $3.00 Size: 0.25 oz/7.5 g. Vegan. This e.l.f. mascara held up under all scenarios with no smudging, flaking, or clumping. It added lots of length and some curl and volume. It also had probably the best wand of all mascaras tested to get to my bottom lashes. It's shorter that your usual wand and makes getting the hard to reach inner (top and bottom) corners a breeze.

Available at: elfcosmetics.com and at CVS, Walgreens, Old Navy, ULTA, Target, Walmart


Jordana Best Lash Extreme Volumizing Mascara

Jordana Best Lash Extreme Volumizing Mascara

MSRP: $3.99 Size: 0.30 oz/9 g. Vegetarian but not vegan (has beeswax). Jordana Best Lash mascara held up under all scenarios, with just a little smudging during jogging. One coat delivered lots of length and volume, and its dark pigment gives an illusion of thickening. It works best with one coat; two coats caused a little clumping. A great mascara, the results are something I'd expect to see with a much more expensive mascara. Read full review.

Note: Be sure to get the Best Lash Extreme Volumizing Mascara. Jordana's other, similarly named mascaras - Best Length Extreme Lengthening Mascara (pink cap) and Best Volume Extreme Volumizing Mascara (green cap) - don't perform quite as well.

Available at: jordanacosmetics.com, CVS, Walgreens.


Milani Big & Bigger Lashes Mascara

Milani Big & Bigger Lashes Mascara

MSRP: $9.00 Size: 0.50 oz/14.4 g. Vegetarian but not vegan (has beeswax). Milani Big & Bigger Lashes Mascara held up well under all scenarios. It gave amazing length and volume. One coat was enough to give the effect it promises; 2 coats gave even more. I absolutely loved this mascara. Read full review.

Available at: milanicosmetics.com, CVS, Walgreens.


Milani Lash Trifecta Mascara

Milani Lash Trifecta Mascara

MSRP: $9.00 Size: 0.28 oz/8 g. Vegetarian but not vegan (has beeswax). Milani Lash Trifecta Mascara held up extremely well under all scenarios - it didn't even smudge in high humidity. Great lengthening, great lash separation, and good volume. Read full review.

Available at: milanicosmetics.com, CVS, Walgreens.


Pacifica Aquarian Gaze Mascara

Pacifica Aquarian Gaze Water Resistant Long Lash Mineral Mascara

MSRP: $14.00 Size 0.25 oz/7.1 g. Vegan. Finally! A mineral mascara that claims it's waterproof and IS!! Pacifica's Aquarian Gaze Mascara held up under all scenarios with no smudging, a godsend for allergy sufferers. It added some length, but mostly volume, especially with 2 coats. The mascara is slightly dry, but that's what makes it waterproof. Love the look & feel of this mascara. Read full review.

Available at: pacificabeauty.com, Whole Foods and other natural grocery stores, some Target and ULTA stores.
