Tried it. I prefer Tart’s Lights Camera Action over the new Benefit one that was their attempt to knock off Tarts’ natural formula that lengthens and leaves your lashes really soft and natural feeling – you can add more mascara over it any time of the day if you want to which many of course are so dry you cannot get the brush through to add more.

I love Loreal’s Double Extend Beauty Tubes mascara but hate taking it off at the end of the day (the beauty tubes get everywhere). I bought Benefit’s They’re Real mascara last week and I’m really impressed with it for length.

I’m in Norway, they’re still available here. I don’t actually buy anything from them except the mascara because they test on animals.

I love Benefit They’re Real right now. It has been the best lengthening mascara I have ever used that also separates really well. I think Zoom Fast by MAC could be good if it just wasn’t so clumpy. I totally recommend They’re Real if you haven’t tried it. It is amazing!

Spent so much money with Diorshow, Givenchy Phenomenon, and others, that are indeed very good UNTIL have falling in love with Colossal from Maybelline. Perfection!

Imju Fiberwig! I have tried countless drugstore and high end mascaras because I’m a mascara junkie, and this mascara has by far surpassed any mascara that has claimed to length–I am so in love with it! I have already gone through 6 tubes. It’s one of those mascaras that you have to work with in layers but they are not kidding when it says it can extend your lashes by 300%+…it actually looks like falsies. You can actually keep building it longer and longer since it has fibers in it…so I never found out it’s limit! And it’s a dream to remove (no smudges). I recommend it to everyone who wants length

Oh I totally second this! I love fiberwig. I found myself occasionally have to trim them if one lash gets ridiculously long. šŸ˜€ On top of the amazing length, they don’t smudge and it’s a dream to remove. It last through hot days by the beach (even in the water) but at the end of the night, warm water removes it completely.

LOL ive had to do that too. One lash went STRAIGHT UP like it was on crack towards the sky. Then *yank* the fibres removed themselves no problems. Hands down fav. I also realised that they hold a curl nicely (and i have straight ones that need a pre-curling)

Haute and Naughty by MAC when you use the volumizing part and then follow immediately with the lengthening part. However, keep an eye out in stores for Lancome’s Hypnose Doll lashes. It is even better and your lashes are super fanned out and long. You can get it now on the Lancome website.

i have really really thin sparse eyelashes so mascara is super duper important lol the ones ive used and it makes me look like i have fake lashes on are lusicious grow by revlon and if you dont mind spending a bit more, film noir is great too!!!!

I’ve said it before and I will say it again, Lorac Multiplex 3D mascara is the best. It lengthens and it thickens. It is definitely one of the more expensive ones, but I love it.

loving Benefit’s They’re Real, also Peter Thomas Roth’s Lashes To Die For – The Mascara. both are wet, very black and do not clump or flake out.

I had good luck with PTR Lashes To Die for – and heard he has improved it with a new lash prep product. I did not buy the duo when it was first presented and on the best buy deal it would be ever..but I did like PTR Lashes To Die for – felt I had good lashes and they were not dried out – my lashes tend to fall out really easy from mascaras. I love mascara, but hardly wear it because it’s so bad for my lashes…esp post chemo now for years…my lashes are hardly there and what I have is super blond to boot.

it seemsl loreal has some good ones! i like telescopic by loreal. its good b/c it never clumps. i am not sure about the lengthening part to be quite honest, but it’s the best mascara i’ve used to date. maybe i will try other loreals based on what you ladies wrote here. maybe i’ll splurge and go for benefit’s new one too šŸ™‚

I say.. Being a guy CoverGirl LashBlast Length is absolutely flawless the formulation and wand are perfect it makes them look long and natural w/o cakin on to much product.. Add being a drier formula is more matte and softer lookin than most mascaras.. I swear by it.. its a perfect accessory for guy makeup .. I love it <3

This is one I keep going back to when I do use mascara because it leaves my lashes feeling really soft – not clumped.No bad stuff in it either.

Definately Maybelline One By One Mascara! Oh my god with only a couple of coats your lashes will look like skyscrapers but in a very natural beautiful way. I have gotten tons of complimets saying how lucky I am to have such beautiful lashes and when I tell me I’m wearing mascara they’re shocked.

Fresh Firebird and MAC Zoom Lash. Zoom Lash usually clumps when you first apply it, but all I have to do is run a lash comb through my lashes once and wow! It almost looks like I have false eye lashes on. I also haven’t experienced any smudging or flaking, even in hot humid weather.

Lancome Hypnose or Definicils. My lashes are naturally long so for those who want a mascara that keeps your lashes looking nice and full without clumping or tons of formula/color, Lancome is perfect.

I gave mine away when it first came out and I bought one to try….I need to by another one and give it a longer trial I guess from all the positive comments here. I like that it’s natural like Tarte is with Light’s Camera Lashes. I used to love Dior Show because I never found a darker black then that one. But I don’t think Dior Show gave me much volume – though post chemo I am never going to have lush lashes again.

The Maybelline one by one is brilliant I switch between the regular and waterproof and both are brill! I also recently tried the Lancome hypnose doll lashes and have to say I am pretty impressed šŸ˜€

Benefit “they’re real mascara”. best mascara I’ve ever used. I tried plenty of drug store mascaras, went through a dior show mascara phase, and had a serious love affair with rimmel glam eye’s mascara. Ever since sephora gave me a sample of benefit’s new mascara I haven’t turned back. Absolute favorite, it doesn’t dry and lasts longer than 12 hours for me.

I love Avon Superextend! Makes my lashes look super long and now it’s available in eye-enhancing colors like amethyst and emerald. Love it and super affordable!

For length, I use L’OREAL TELESCOPIC MASCARA. It’s slim wand is really perfect for coating each eyelash for base to tip plus it defines my lashes without clumping it.

I already have super long lashes to start (a side effect of a mix of good genes and medication, I believe!) but I still see major improvement in length with Buxom Lash by Bare Escentuals. It’s amazing! It’s definitely my go-to.

Majolica majorca lash expander, holding curl amazingly and lengthen. Only lengthening mascara really lengthens my eyelashes are those with tiny fibers in mascara.

I can’t believe no one has mentioned MUFE Smokey Eyes mascara. I have tried pretty much all the “best” mascaras over the years and up to now thought YSL Faux Cils gave the most beautiful look, but flaked and dried out quickly. The MUFE mascara makes it look like I have about twice the lashes, lengthens beautifully and is dry enough to where it doesn’t make a mess when applying.

I normally hate drug store mascara, but I discovered maybelline Falsies black drama, and OMG. This is better then my fairy drops in lengthening and volumizing. I’ll use the fairydrops if I need water resistance, but falsies black drama is my new HG!

#1 Imju Dejavu Fiberwig Paint On False Lashes Extra Long
#2 Majolica Majorca Lash Expander Frame Plus (by Shiseido for Asian market); and
#3 Kiss Me Heroine Make Long & Curl

Those 3 are the best. Maybe some of you aren’t familiar with those 3, but those gems are very popular among asian beauty junkies. These are Japanese brands and I always trust my mascaras to Japanese company, they always produce the greatest mascaras ever!
For price wise, it’s more expensive than drugstore brand, but slightly cheaper than most dept. store brand. And yes, these are surpass some high end mascaras in term of performance.

I second all those 3 too! They are amazing. Imju being the easiest to remove (warm water), Majolica Majorca one is not bad with L’oreal waterproof make up remover and Kiss Me takes patience to remove but they are all smudgeproof šŸ™‚ Fiberwig is around 17 USD, Majolica Majorca around 12 USD, and Kiss Me is around 15 USD here in Taiwan. I have used 10 tubes of Fiberwig, 7 Majorlica and 4 Kiss Me (I am normally pretty tired when I get home so the faster the easier to remove the better lol)

Lancome Hypnose Drama alllll the wayy !!

I use to think Dior Show was the bomb.com …yeaaa not so much !
Im not a girl that was blessed with amazing lashes and they also do not like to cooperate sadly …but I herd that Kim Kardashian had used Hypnose and her lashes always look good when she wears it so I thought I

woops …anyways decided to go with the Hypnose Drama instead because of the brush and it works WONDERS ! …..Maybe its just me but it lengthens, thickens and curls my lashes all at the same time I swear by it ..definitely HG status mascara !
