There are some things we women share, no matter what — a love of shoes, an innate ability to match handbags to outfits, and a desire for longer, thicker lashes. There are lots of products that promise lush lashes, but which ones deliver? I’ve tried dozens, so I know which ones work, and which ones are a waste of money. Here are the 7 best products I’ve found for longer lashes. Prepare to flirt!
1. Dior DiorShow Maximizer Lash Plumping Serum
Price: $28.00 at sephora.com
Even if you have lush, gorgeous lashes, this product is still a must-have. You can wear it as a base under your mascara, or wear it instead of mascara. Either way, it lengthens, strengthens, and curls your lashes while at the same time preventing damage that might cause them to break or fall out. After just 8 weeks, more than half of the women who tried it noticed more volume, nearly half had longer lashes, and almost three-quarters thought their lashes had more curl. Amazing!
2. Philosophy Just Release Me™ Dual-Phase Oil-Free Makeup Remover
Price: $18.00 at sephora.com
I’m sure one of the worst things you can do to your lashes is to use a harsh eye make-up remover. This oil-free remover by Philosophy is completely gentle, so gentle even contact lens wearers can use it! And since it’s ultra-gentle, it won’t irritate or over-dry your lashes. Hooray!
3. Smashbox Lash Revival Treatment & Conditioner
Price: $34.00 at sephora.com
This lash lengthening and strengthening serum applies like a mascara, but you apply it at night, after you’ve washed gently and before bed. After just 8 weeks, almost more than 90% of them women who used it had softer, thicker, fuller lashes. With results like that, you’ve got to try it!
4. Talika Lipocils Expert®
Price: $55.00 at sephora.com
This lash-lengthening serum is a little pricier than the others, but it’s worth it because it actually delivers fuller, longer lashes in just a few weeks. The dual applicator is unique, too, with a sponge at the tip for applying to the lid (at the lash line) and then the standard mascara brush to swipe the stuff across your lashes to condition and strengthen them. It’s formulated without harmful sulfates, petrochemicals, and triclosan, too.
5. Givenchy Mister Lash Booster
Price: $30.00 at sephora.com
Some lash treatments can be thick or sticky, making it impossible to wear them under your mascara, but this one’s formulated to be smooth and silky, perfect for layering with your mascara or alone. I love the applicator (isn’t it unique?) and the price is right, too!
6. Lancôme CILS BOOSTER XL Super-Enhancing Mascara Base
Price: $22.00 at sephora.com
This isn’t a lash treatment per se, but rather an undercoat meant to be worn under your mascara to maximize the effect and make your lashes look longer and thicker. It’s clear, and the wand helps separate and lengthen lashes. I wish it has an added conditioner, but I’m not complaining!
7. Makeup Forever Lash Fibers
Price: $20.00 at sephora.com
This is another lengthening product meant to be worn under your mascara to give you full, fluttery eyelashes. It contains fibers, so you must make sure the potion is completely dry before you try to apply your regular mascara, or you’ll end up with clumps. But what an easy way to add volume! It’s a Sephora exclusive, so you won’t find it anywhere else.
Of all the lash-lengthening products I’ve tried, and there have been dozens, these are the ones I’ve found that work the best. So try a few of these and get ready to bat those lush, gorgeous lashes! Have you tried any of these? Which did you think gave you longer, fuller lashes? Or have you tried something else that you think works better? Please let me know!
