THE IN-TRAY

These five mascaras are inciting wand lust

The quest for the one mascara to rule them all is never-ending. But with a multitude of new and innovative wands offering different benefits, it’s time to build your lash wardrobe.

1. HOURGLASS Caution Extreme Lash Mascara

This latest contender from Hourglass delivers lashes so extreme it should come with a warning. Think dangerously long and unbelievably voluminous, the makeup version of towering heels. The double-action brush hugs tight, coating the entire lash with the jet-black, waxy formula infused with conditioning panthenol. It can be layered on thick, for party season, without clumping.

2. NARS Climax Mascara

With its unique ribbed bristles and whipped moisturising formula, NARS Climax Mascara grips your lashes, coating them from root to tip in a swipe. It creates an instant lash lift that will have you breaking up with your beauty therapist. Coat after coat the formula builds, adding volume, without clumping or smudging and staying soft and feathery to the touch.

3. Kevyn Aucoin The Curling Mascara

Great for every day, this mascara enhances your natural lash shape. It uses lash-building fibres to beautifully lengthen, separate and define each individual hair. The slimline brush makes it simple to manoeuvre around tight inner corners (no lash left behind), and the tubing formula ensures effortless removal (it literally wipes off with water). No flaking, smudging or panda eyes.

4. Chantecaille Mascara Faux Cils

Give your eyes the attention they deserve—this cult-favourite mascara delivers thick, luxurious lashes that look like falsies, without the upkeep and effort. The rosewater-infused formula is rich in botanicals to regenerate lashes and keep them flexible (no stiff, spider legs here), while the waxy formula is buildable to accentuate the volume and curl.

5. By Terry Lash-Expert Twist Brush Mascara

Some days you want luscious length, some days you want superior volume. Avoid decision fatigue with this game-changing, twist-up mascara brush that delivers one or both in a click. The high-end pigments contain natural protective oils and create long, full lashes that can be touched-up on the way to dinner without clumping or messy fall-out.

Apot.Care Optilash Lash Enhancing Serum

This lash-boosting serum will give you naturally fuller lashes in around four weeks. The peptide- and nutrient-rich serum ensures maximum growth, while conditioning and protecting the lashes to help them reach their full potential. Use it in the morning under your mascara and at night after cleansing.
