Everything You Need to Know About Choosing the Best L’Oréal Paris Mascara for You

Whether you’re after long, defined lashes or mega-volume, there’s a L’Oréal Paris you’ll love.

Raise your hand if you’ve ever been let down by a mascara purchase—not because it was bad per se but because it didn’t perform the way you were expecting it to. When it comes to mascara, there is simply no “one size fits all” option. That’s because while mascara is widely accepted as the finishing touch of any makeup look, everyone wants different things from their mascara. Perhaps you’re after extreme volume some days, while other times you want separation and lift. Heading to a wedding that’s sure to be a tearjerker? Waterproof mascara will be your best friend. Tired of using the same old black mascara day in and day out? There are coloured formulations for you to choose from.

Best Mascara for Classic Volume 

Want thicker-looking lashes sans clumping? Look no further than L’Oréal Paris Voluminous Original Mascara. The best mascara for getting lashes up to five times their usual thickness, this innovative formulation is designed to resist clumping, leaving your lashes feeling softer than ever. The best part? It’s available in seven different non-waterproof shades (ranging from black to blue to burgundy) and three waterproof shades (Carbon Black, Black and Black Brown).

Best Mascara for Intense Volume 

Want voluminous lashes in a blink? Turn to Voluminous Lash Paradise Mascara. With a formula that’s rich in a blend of flower oils and a soft wavy brush that catches each lash, unbeatable volume (20 times more than your natural lashes!) and soft, long lashes are just a coat (or two or three) of mascara away. 


Best Mascara for Extreme Length

The secret to L’Oréal Paris Telescopic Original Mascara’s ability to make lashes look miles long? The flat side of the patented flexible precision brush, which can make lashes appear up to 60% longer, while the comb side of the brush separates for a clump-free finish. If long, separated lashes are what you desire from a mascara, you’ll love Telescopic Original Mascara.


Best Mascara for Sensitive Eyes

If you have sensitive eyes, Voluminous Balm Noir Mascara is for you. Formulated with 99% natural-origin ingredients, this is the best mascara for anyone who struggles with itchy or stinging eyes throughout the day or irritation during the makeup removal process. Voluminous Balm Noir Mascara delivers on length, volume and definition, while its flexible elastomer brush coats your lashes with a gentle formula infused with nourishing ingredients. 


Best Mascara for Weightless Volume

If intense volume is the name of your mascara game, then make sure to add L’Oréal Paris Air Volume Mega Mascara to your shopping list. Its truly innovative formula inflates and puffs up lashes for dramatic volume that feels as light as air. Available in Black, Blackest Black, Black-Brown and Waterproof Blackest Black, this mascara has an ultra-soft formula that is air whipped for a truly weightless feel, and the cushiony bristle brush latches onto, separates and coats every single lash from root to tip. 


Best Duo for a False Lash Look

Name a more iconic duo than primer and mascara—we’ll wait. L’Oréal Paris Voluminous Superstar Mascara is a two-step primer and mascara that seriously delivers on volume and length thanks to its fibre-rich formula that coats lashes, making them appear fuller and longer. You’ll have people asking if you got lash extensions in no time. Voluminous Superstar Mascara is available in Black, Blackest Black and Black Brown, and if waterproof mascara is more your style, you can pick up Black and Blackest Black in waterproof formulas. 


Best Mascara for Lifted Lashes

Looking to up the lift of your lashes? Enter Bambi Oversized Eye Mascara. The viral mascara (perhaps you’ve seen it on social media?) makes eyes look more open and alert, thanks to its lash-stretch technology. The lifting brush fits perfectly into your eye shape to grab onto each and every lash and lift it way up for a wide-awake finished look that’s hard to beat. 


Best Mascara for Conditioning Lashes

Available in both black and brown, Age Perfect Lash Magnifying Mascara is formulated specifically for mature, sparse and fragile lashes. The formula is enriched with a conditioning serum and nourishing jojoba oil, so it actually helps to strengthen your lashes and reduce breakage with extended use.
