Rodan + Fields Lash Boost ($170) 

I’ve been using this lash serum for years, and I saw significant improvements in lash length and strength within the first couple of weeks. Applying it is a breeze. Just use the brush applicator to coat your eyelashes every night before bedtime, and you’re good to go! 

Benefit BADgal BANG! Volumizing Mascara ($28.00) 

When I stepped into Ulta last year, I never expected to leave with this mascara. It was actually a friendly Ulta associate who convinced me to give it a try. I’m glad I listened to their advice because it is now my all-time favorite mascara.  

There are several reasons why I adore this mascara: It’s volumizing, smudge-proof, waterproof, and has a slender brush applicator. I can confidently wear it all day without worrying about my lashes moving or the mascara smudging, which is essential for me when I don’t have time for touch-ups. The slim wand helps me achieve my desired lash length and volume. All you have to do is wiggle the brush from the base to the tip of your lashes. I usually apply two to three coats on my upper and lower lashes, but you can add as many coats as you prefer. 

One/ Size FANTASIZE Ultimate Lifting & Lengthening Mascara ($15 – $25) 

 I received this mascara as a freebie from Sephora, and I’ve decided that I’ll definitely purchase the full size once I run out because it’s just that good. Patrick Starr, the well-known YouTube makeup artist, created the One/Size brand, which is pretty cool if you follow his work. The fan brush in this mascara works wonders in making your lashes look both defined and volumized. Another thing I love about this mascara is its 24-hour wear and its smudge-proof, waterproof, and flake-proof qualities. What sets this mascara apart is the flex peptide gel ingredient that effectively lifts and holds my lashes throughout the day. I typically apply a couple of coats by wiggling the brush from the base of my lashes to the tip to achieve the lift I desire. 

Wet n Wild Mega Clear Brow & Lash Mascara ($2.99) 

What I really appreciate about this clear brow gel and mascara is its versatility – it’s a two-in-one product. Personally, I use the clear mascara as a top coat to not only separate my lashes but also give them an extra lift and hold. It also doubles as a lash or brow primer, which intensifies the mascara color. 

Overall, these volumizing mascara products have become my staple makeup essentials. They’ve got my back, giving my lashes the lift, definition, and staying power they deserve. So, if you’re on the hunt for fabulous lashes, give these a shot – they won’t disappoint.
