OK, so before we dig in, let us admit that we know taking a quiz on isn’t exactly the same thing as taking a Myers-Briggs test. But in an alternate universe where the size, length, color and thickness of your eyelashes matter way more than, say, how you handle conflict, the type of mascara you wear can speak volumes (pun intended).


1. When picking mascara, you’re most likely to be influence by:

A. Its ability to withstand lots of different types of weather
B. The wand shape
C. The cool packaging
D. You always buy the same thing, so it doesn’t matter.

2. When you swipe on your mascara every morning, what is the message you’d like it to tell the world?
A. It’s really more what you don’t want to tell the world, which is that you’ve been crying, sweating or in bad weather.
B. You have a fun, flirty look about you.
C. You’re the cool girl.
D. You’d rather they not notice your mascara, but rather just how nice you look.

3. How often do you buy new mascara?
A. Every 3 months, obviously. Like you’re supposed to.
B. Every 4-5 months. You get pretty busy and forget sometimes.
C. You buy a new mascara every few weeks. You have quite the collection.
D. Every 3 months. It just doesn’t work as well after that.

4. When you go out at night, what’s your scene?
A. You take a spin class as your big Friday night activity.
B. You go out on the prowl.
C. You go crazy. Out all night!
D. You enjoy a nice dinner and a glass of wine with friends.

5. What’s your mascara motto?
A. If it doesn’t stay put all day, what’s the point?
B. The bigger, the better.
C. Seeing color
D. If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.


If you got mostly As: You swear by waterproof mascara, which means you’re incredibly practical. You make wise decisions rather than emotional ones, and making the most of your time and money is important to you. We have a challenge for you, though! Maybe in addition to your basic brown or black, try a waterproof mascara in a fun shade! We recommend YSL Mascara Volume Effet Faux Cils Waterproof in Signature Violet for a pretty purple hue.

If you got mostly Bs: When you bat your lashes, all the boys swoon. You are drawn to mascara formulas that make your lashes curly and full so that your eyes can do the flirting for you. You have a bubbly zest for life, and people are drawn to you. If you’re looking for a new mascara to try, we recommend the Giorgio Armani Black Ecstasy Mascara, because it provides curl, length and volume all in one!

If you got mostly Cs: You are a trend-setter who is not afraid to stand out in the crowd. You are drawn to bright mascaras to enhance your look, and sometimes you might even try crazy false lashes like NYX Cosmetics Special Effects Theatrical Lashes. We have a suggestion for you, though. When you’re out and about rocking that teal mascara all night long, you’re going to want it to be waterproof. It’s worth investing in NYX Proof It! Waterproof Mascara Top Coat, which goes over any mascara making it waterproof! Amazing, right?

If you got mostly Ds: We bet Audrey Hepburn is your style icon, and Maybelline Great Lash has been your mascara for as long as you can remember. You like the great classics, and they like you back. We would tell you to try a brightly colored mascara, but we know better. You prefer your classic black, thank you very much!
