What are the best mascaras in 2024?

Beauty experts have shared their top mascara choices and the solutions that guarantee beautiful, luscious, and eye-catching lashes. To be specific, the ultimate purpose is to find formulas that can provide lift, curl, length, and volume in a perfect balance while being neither flaky nor smudgy.

According to the experts, Kevyn Aucoin’s The Volume Mascara is their absolute favourite as it is universally suitable for all lash types. This is a smudge-proof, tubular formula that does everything from providing volume and thickening to length.


Maybelline’s Lash Sensational Sky High Tinted Primer is the best drugstore option, which is not technically a primer as it can be worn on its ownIt is ideal as it is balanced between length and volume without clumping and is the most budget-friendly. In addition, it is sweat-proof and long-wearing, great for hot weather or an active lifestyle.

The Victoria Beckham Beauty Vast Lash Mascara is another favourite as it provides drama, and volume, and lasts for 12 hours. In addition, it is resistant to smudging and flaking and is suitable for every type of weather. KVD Beauty Full Sleeve Long + Defined is an ideal tubing formula that is long-wearing, waterproof, and easy to remove. It can delicately lengthen and define lashes.

Pat McGrath’s Dark Star Mascara is also a great option for those who need buildable volume and an easily applicable gel-hybrid formula, offering a little bit of structure and shape. Benefit Cosmetics’ Fan Fest Fanning & Volumizing Mascara is for maximum volume, using the curved wand and the lightweight formula to provide a fanned-out and wide-eyed look and also nourishing lashes. Yves Saint Laurent Beauty’s Lash Clash Mascara is the longest, sleekest, flake-free length. MAC’s Extreme Dimensions Lash Mascara – 3D Black is chosen as the best for the densest “wet” formula that builds volume and lift. Overall, achieving the best, separated lash look has become much easier with those experts’ recommendations, both for daily activities and at the same time a glamorous and bold look.
