Mascaras Our Editors Swear By

Maybelline Volum Express Colossal Mascara

It’s time to start planning for your New Year’s Eve soirée, and we’re getting in the holiday spirit by stocking up on our must-have mascaras. Long, luscious lashes are the easiest way to up the ante when it comes to party attire, and these seven brands have gotten our team out the door in style year after year. Did we miss your favorite mascara? Do tell in the comments!

Taylor loves Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara ($8.09): “This is honestly the best drugstore mascara I’ve ever used. It adds both volume and length to my eyelashes. I’ve already gone through three since discovering it this year.”

Caitlin and Rikki love Maybelline Volum’ Express Colossal Mascara ($6.99): “This is by far my favorite (and I’ve tried a lot) and have used it for years—it adds mega volume and I love that it’s not a huge pain to remove.”—Caitlin

Abby loves L’Oréal Paris Voluminous Miss Manga Mascara ($7.19): “I love this mascara and keep going back to it! The formula is amazing and it does a great job of lengthening, curling and separating my lashes!”

Carrie loves bareMinerals Flawless Definition Curl & Lengthen Mascara ($18): “Almost all of my makeup is bareMinerals. I love that everything is mineral-based. This mascara is also infused with natural ingredients that help condition my lashes—game changer!”

Carly loves FLOWER Zoom-In Ultimate Mascara ($7.23): “Literally the best mascara I’ve ever used—and it’s under $8! The brush easily changes to help lengthen, volumize and/or curl your lashes.”

Arin loves Dior Diorshow Mascara ($27.50): “Straight off the runway, this mascara has been my go-to for more than five years! It thickens, strengthens and extends lashes. Bonus: It recently got an upgrade, so the formula is even better than ever! You’re about to get hooked.”

Natalie loves Stowaway Defined Lash Mascara ($12): “I love that it keeps my lashes flexible rather than stiff like other mascaras, and thanks to the fibers it has in the formula, it makes my lashes look super long! I also appreciate that it’s EU compliant, meaning it’s a safe beauty pick!”
