For Spider Lashes
Mascara Pick: Maybelline Volum’ Express The Colossal Spider Effect Mascara
A new trend in town, Twiggy-esque spider lashes have been making regular appearances on runways, social feeds, celeb’s faces and even our own Makeup.com beauty editor. If serious drama is your cup of tea, the Spider Spike Brush works to sweep on bold volume and maximum length, while the tapered tip is used for applying mascara to your corners. Now let’s work on getting over that fear of spiders ...
For Voluminous Lashes
Mascara Pick: Maybelline Volum’ Express The Mega Plush Mascara
Mega volume. Mega plush. That’s what we like to hear when someone is describing our eyelashes. And with a Flexor Brush this full and plump, you can expect every single lash to be coated with mascara for mega volume, thickness and body. BOOM.
For Winged Lashes
Mascara Pick: Maybelline The Falsies Push Up Angel Mascara
For winged lashes, look for a winged wand! The exclusive “Push-Up” wing brush sweeps lashes to the side, while lifting and plumping from the roots for a voluminous, winged arch. So you can bat your lashes without worrying about your falsies coming off. Awkwarrrd.
For Curled Lashes
Mascara Pick: Maybelline Great Lash Curved Brush Mascara
Doll-like lashes without a lash curler—is it really possible? This custom C-curl brush lifts each lash for the perfect curl and thickness without the perpetual worry of pinching off your lashes. Ouch!
For Defined Lashes
Mascara Pick: Maybelline Define-A-Lash Lengthening Mascara
Sometimes a gal just wants well-defined lashes with zero clumps. Are we right or are we right? For naturally long-looking lashes, this “wiper” brush delivers the perfect amount of formula to each lash without clumps, bumps, or undesirable lumps.
For Chaotic, Clumpy, Lashes
Mascara Pick: Maybelline Volum’ Express Colossal Chaotic Lash Mascara
And on an opposite note, sometimes you just want to unleash chaotic, clumpy lashes when the occasion calls for it (or when no occasion calls for it). A teaser brush such as this one has the same effect on your lashes as a teasing brush does for your hair. We mean BIG volume, plump and purposefully disorganized lashes. Call us a hot mess. We’ll take it as a compliment.
To Multiply Lashes
Mascara Pick: Maybelline Great Lash Lots of Lashes Mascara
Uhm, who doesn’t want lots and lots (and lots) of lashes? The unique, heart-shaped brush reaches each and every lash to multiply impact. Get ready for those “Woah, are those your real lashes?” comments.
For Longer Lashes
Mascara Pick: Maybelline Lash Stiletto Ultimate Length Mascara
This spoolie does for your lashes what stilettos do for your legs—elongates! The Grip & Extend Brush grasps each lash and extends from every angle for 70% longer looking lashes. While we’ll continue to wish for longer legs, lashes will also do.
