The 10 Best Lengthening Mascaras! Watch The soFeminine Team Reviews In #TheBeautyBooth

by Lareese Craig Published on 11 March 2015

Girls just love to wear mascara but with so many promising products out there it’s hard to get our hands on the perfect one. That’s why we’ve decided to put 10 of the best lengthening mascaras to the test for you. Here’s what went down in #TheBeautyBooth at sofeminine this week.

Lengthening mascaras like to promise us the world but what if we want all the length without the clumping, smudging and flaking that can come with it? It’s a mammoth ask, we know.

When it comes to mascara it’s our job to be picky. Our peepers are a big deal. It’s the only way we can look awake without actually being awake so any extra lengthening, widening and volumising help is the kind of USP we can get on board with.

We put 10 plenty of mascaras to the test to see which ones deliver on their promise to lengthen those lashes. ​

Introducing 10 of the best lengthening mascaras tried and tested in our very own #TheBeautyBooth - time to hit the beauty department!

1. Laura Mercier Long Lash £19.50

What they said

Laura Mercier is one of our go to brands for fail safe makeup investments. Their Long Lash mascara doesn't disappoint. It extends and precisely separates the thinnest, shortest, hard-to-reach lashes by scooping up and lengthening each lash while delivering just the right amount of product.

All this extra length is down to their dynamic brush design and their innovative stretch formula whichis made specially to lengthen, separate and curl each lash making lashes appear longer.

What we said

Perfect for separating those harder to reach lashes. Really natural and perfect for wearing day in day out.

2. MAC Extreme Dimension 3D Lash £19.00

What they said

MAC promise that their lightweight whipped formula saturates lashes root to tip. This mascara and wand combo should deliver a total 3D experience which adds volume, extends length and creates curl while conditioning for softness and flexibility. And breathe. On paper this one has got it all!

What we said

A 3D mascara that loads lashes right from the root to the tip. MADE for a smokey evening eye!

3. Benefit They're Real £19.50

What they said

As the no.1 best selling mascara in the UK for the last 2 years. This HAS to be good...

They're Real by Benefit lengthens, curls, volumizes, lifts and separates. The jet black, long-wearing formula won’t smudge or dry out. And the specially designed brush reveals lashes you never knew you had!

We love how this gives each lash emphasis and really defines and lengthens your lashes, people literally will ask if 'They're real?' - exactly the response you'd hope for from this mascara number!

What we said

It really lengthens the lashes and stays put all day long. Loved it!

4. Rimmel ScandalEyes XXtreme £6.99

What they said

We love Rimmel for it's fast but effective makeup solutions - plus it's always our go to brand when we need an instant makeup pick me up (even when payday is a mere memory). Their new ScandalEyes XX-treme has a cool dual action brush to make for two mascaras in one. Hey, we do love a beauty gadget. The curved side volumises and loads up lashes for a really intense look while the flat side pledges to define and lengthens lashes from root to tip. Sans clumpage. Sounds good right!

What we said

This one's for the party girl. It's all about the attitude and the drama. Great for evening wear.

What they said

A multitude of innovative stretchable fibres shape, plump and extend each lash from root to tip. Fibres are fused onto lashes as the mascara dries, setting and locking-in length for up to 10 hours. A clump-resistant, flakeproof, smudgeproof formula. Could this be the Cinderella mascara we've been searching for?!

What we said

If you're looking for a daytime mascara then this is your one. It lengthens and separates the lashes but the overall effect is much more subtle.

A bold black mascara that's bound to cause drama. The perfect accompaniment to a smokey eye! What's more it's totes affordable.
