With no more LVL’s for the foreseeable, here’s our pick of the perfect mascaras

It goes without saying that the most popular mascaras combine a good wand with a great formula that doesn’t flake, but is easily buildable too.

Inimitable Intense Volume, £28 Chanel

The specially-designed wand and formula result in an intense 3D effect. The soft, flexible brush has ultra-thin bristles and, together with the patented formula with Provitamin B5, coats every single lash from root to tip for beautiful, natural-looking lashes.


Definicils Mascara, £24.50 Lancome

This best-selling mascara with a patented brush coats lashes evenly from root to tip, with no clumping or flaking.

Yves Saint-Laurent

Volume Effect Faux Oils, £26 YSL

This unique mascara wand has a 2-in-1 technology, as the curved combs on each side instantly lift and define lashes, whilst the fibre bristles create curl, and the long-lasting formula with walnut leaf extract stays put all day.

MAC Cosmetics

Haute & Naughty Waterproof Mascara, £22 MAC

A two-in-one, dual-wiper system mascara that lets you choose to naturally define your lashes, or to instantly comb and load them for full-on drama. One wiper refines the application for a clean sweep, while the other loads the lashes for greater impact. Now available in a new waterproof formula, protecting your lashes whatever the weather.


Climax Mascara, £22 NARS

Ribbed bristles are loaded up with a whipped formula for hardcore lift with a featherlight finish which goes all the way—from roots to tips and back again—for buildable intensity without clumping or smudging.

Too Faced

Damn Girl Mascara, £22 Too Faced

This mascara’s revolutionary creamy mousse formula was developed with a special blend of whipped melting waxes to deliver an immediate full load of extreme volume, and innovative polymers keep lashes flexible while lifting, lengthening, and locking-in 24 hours of smudge- and flake-resistant curl.


Diorshow Waterproof Mascara, £28 Dior

The chunky brush of this bestseller coats each lash with its glossy formula, for as-near-as-dammit false-lash drama without the hassle. It stays put too.
