As a beauty editor who tests mascaras for a living, I recommend this brand

I’ve never been shy about my love-hate relationship with mascara. My natural lashes are on the shorter side, and with my hooded eyelids, even the best mascaras tend to smudge. Honestly, most days I find myself skipping mascara altogether. However, given my role of testing products, I recently got the nudge to step out of my mascara comfort zone and try Lancôme’s mascara range. To my surprise, I’ve been genuinely impressed.

Whether you’re looking for longer, separated lashes like me, craving volume or drama, or wanting that perfect lift and curl, Lancôme has a mascara that suits your needs. Here’s my full review of each Lancôme mascara.

Why we love it

For a night out, this mascara is a game-changer. It adds so much volume that you might even feel a bit self-conscious—especially if you’re a fan of false lashes. The soft fibre brush works wonders, boosting volume and thickness. Just be cautious with the coats; too many can make it look a bit spidery, especially if your lashes are on the lower side.

Perfect for both daytime and evening wear, this mascara’s buildable formula is a win. Even if you have fragile, sparse lashes like mine, you’ll appreciate how comfortable it feels. Enriched with ProVitamin B5, it avoids that crispy, brittle feeling, no matter how much you layer it. A single coat offers a fluttery, defined look, while layering gives a thicker, more dramatic lash appearance.
