Seasonal transitions are a good time to change things up, whether that means ordering a new leather jacket, sorting through a box of last year's sweaters or deciding what works and what doesn't in your current beauty routine. In that spirit, we've been scoping out some of the season's best bets in different makeup categories, and today, we're here to talk about mascara.
We've done some research on mascara and its related products, and below, you can check out the fruits of our labor if you're in the need of a little lash pick-me-up. (And really, aren't we all?)
Anastasia Beverly Hills Lash Genius Waterproof Topcoat
$21 via Macy's
If you have a mascara you already love but you wish had a little more staying power or that you could wear it during temperamental weather, this is the thing to get (and it actually works)!
Chanel Inimitable Waterproof Mascara
$32 via Chanel
If you're a longtime PurseBlog reader, you've probably seen me sing this stuff's praises before; I've probably bought a dozen tubes of it in my life, if not more. It lengthens, separates and volumizes wonderfully.
Chantecaille Faux Cils Longest Lash Mascara
$70 via Nordstrom
This stuff is super pricey, and whether or not it's worth it probably depends on how much $70 and/or your eyelashes are worth to you. It's the only thing that ever lured me away from my Chanel holy grail, though.
Clinique Bottom Lash Mascara
$10.50 via Macy's
Did you know bottom-lash mascara was an actual thing? It is, and if your regular mascara makes a muddy mess out of the area below your eyes, this is the stuff you need to try.
Estée Lauder Sumptuously Extreme Waterproof Volume Mascara
$26 via Macy's
This is one of the most beloved mascaras on the market, especially if you're looking to pump up thin lashes.
Guerlain Maxilash Intense Volumizing Mascara
$30 via Sephora
Although "volume" is in the name, this mascara is widely beloved for both curling and lengthening as well.
Lancôme Definicils High Definition Mascara
$27.50 via Macy's
This is one of the most popular mascaras in the world and has been for ages. It is not without reason--Definicils was the first formula I used that convinced me mascara was a thing worth wearing.
NARS Audacious Mascara
$26 via Sephora
This is a new mascara that's gotten somewhat mixed reviews, but I have some friends who are absolutely, totally in love with it, and it's definitely the next one I'm going to try.
Peter Thomas Roth Lashes to Die For The Mascara
$22 via Macy's
No clumps, no smudges and plenty of ingredients to nourish your lashes over time.
Shiseido Nourishing Mascara Base
$24 via Macy's
Speaking of nourishing: this base coat really, really works.
