Lancome Definicils High Definition Mascara

Best lengthening mascara

Pros
  • Lengthens lashes
  • Defines/separates lashes
  • Minimal clumping
  • Long-wearing formula
Cons
  • Expensive
  • Wetter/runnier than most during application

Multiple reviewers say Lancome Definicils High Definition Mascara lives up to its claims, producing lovely, long, defined lashes. This mascara comes with a long, thin applicator brush that reviewers say is effective and easy to use; its separated bristles coat and lengthen each individual lash. One drawback: This mascara's formula is a bit runny, making it easy to smudge before it dries. Once it does, however, it lasts all day without flaking, say users at MakeupAlley.com and TotalBeauty.com. If you prefer a budget-friendly mascara, reviewers say Maybelline Full 'n Soft mascara (*Est. $7) is an excellent choice. Lancome Definicils High Definition Mascara is fragrance-free and comes in five shades: black, brown, deep black, deep brown and navy.
