Battle Of The Volumizing Mascaras

If you ask most women what their favorite mascara is, you’ll find that they usually provide a very definitive answer. Women are VERY particular about their mascara, and once they find one that they love, they usually stay true to it for a very long time. After receiving several opinions on the “BEST” mascara, I decided to put three of the top-selling volumizing mascaras to the test. For a week, I traded off wearing the three mascaras and rated them according to volume, lengthening power, and lasting power. Check out my reviews in the slideshow below.

  • Maybelline The Colossal Volum’ Express 2 of 5

    I started with the drugstore favorite, and I was pleasantly surprised at how well this mascara performed! My lashes were full and had tons of volume. I also loved that it didn't irritate my eyes or flake throughout the day. 

    Rate 1-5 (5 being best)

    Volume: 5

    Length: 4

    All day wear: 4

    Get it at Drugstores $4.97

  • Tarte Lights, Camera, Lashes 3 of 5

    My favorite part of this mascara is the awesome dual-sided brush that lengthened, curled, and gave my lashes all day volume. Tarte is always a favorite brand of mine because they use more natural ingredients. This mascara is formulated without mineral oil, sodium lauryl sulfates, parabens, or phthalates.   

    Rate 1-5 (5 being best)

    Volume: 5

    Length: 5

    All day Wear: 5

    Get it at Tarte $23

  • Benefit They’re Real! 4 of 5

    I found this mascara to be very black, which I loved, but I also found it to be more lengthening rather than volumizing. I also found it VERY difficult to take off at the end of the day (too much wear and tear on my delicate lashes).

    Rate 1-5 (5 being best)

    Volume: 3

    Length: 5

    All day Wear: 5

    Get it at Benefit $23

  • And the Winner is… 5 of 5

    #1 Tarte: The more natural ingredients made this my #1 pick! Also, loving the gold packaging. 

    #2 Maybelline: At less than half of the price of my other two picks, this made my #2 spot. 

    #3 Benefit: Better at lengthening than volumizing, and it was too difficult to take off at the end of the day.
