Here in the Latina beauty department we love a good mascara. Really, who doesn't? That's why we decided to count down the best ones around. From volumizers to lengtheners and everything in between, take a look at our slideshow of winning wands. Then let us know if we have omitted any of your favorites by leaving a comment for our consideration.
1. Mascara Hall of Fame: Best In Show Dior
Best in Show: DiorShow Extase Mascara ($28, sephora.com)
A bump up from the original DiorShow mascara, this wand delivers the same 'wow' effect by volumizing and plumping lashes in just a few strokes. The tiers of spheres on this wand allow for the maximum deposit of this fiber-rich formula. Dark and dramatic results guaranteed!
2. Mascara Hall of Fame: Curling Queen Maybelline
Curling Queen: Maybelline XXL Pro Curl Washable ($7, target.com)
The push-up bra of mascaras, this double-ended stick produces two curved wands that, once layered, have a lifting effect like no other. Another plus: Neither formula irritated our sensitive, contact-wearing eyes.
3. Mascara Hall of Fame: No Clump Covergirl
No Clumps Here: CoverGirl Lash Blast Lengthening Mascara ($7, ulta.com)
This impossibly easy-to-use mascara separates, defines and lengthens lashes in just one coat – and does so without even a hint of cakey clumping. The formula is so fine, and so effective, you can apply without the use of a mirror. (Go ahead, try it...)
4. Mascara Hall of Fame: Bobbi Brown
Still Looks Natural: Bobbi Brown Extreme Party Mascara ($22, bobbibrowncosmetics.com)
Though it claims to be Bobbi Brown’s “boldest mascara ever,” this lightweight volumizing formula left our lashes soft, flexible and flitting about in a natural, yet noticeably defined way. It was our favorite pick for easy, everyday wear.
5. Mascara Hall of Fame: High Drama Mac
High Drama: Mac Cosmetics Studio Fix Lash ($13, maccosmetics.com)
We like our coffee like we like our lashes: Dark, rich and capable of waking us up in a New York minute! This mousse-y mascara fills in our lashes and leaves them looking like lush velvet curtains. Wink, wink.
6. Mascara Hall of Fame: Rimmel
Unbeatable Bargain: Rimmel London Sexy Curves Mascara ($8, Walgreens.com)
The bumpy brush curls, lifts, separates and lengthens–and the flirtatious effects last all day long. It doesn’t get much better than this at the drugstore.
