6 New Mascaras to Try
Sephora Collection Clear Defining Mascara
If you’re one of those lucky ladies who have naturally long lashes, consider this clear version, which will give your lashes lift and definition without adding color (or flaking or smudges). The translucent mixture gives lashes a lip gloss–type of finish.

We’ve road-tested many brands of mascaras over the years. Here are some of the best mascara picks that we tried.
Featured January 2013
Clinique High Impact Extreme Volume Mascara
This ophthalmologist-tested thick-bristled brush is sensitive enough for contact wearers but still provides a deep, volume-building sweep of intense color.
To buy: $19.50, clinique.com.
Korres Volcanic Minerals Mascara
If you prefer to go with more natural ingredients when it comes to your cosmetics, look no further. Volcanic soil is the base of a formula that provides a dark, defining hue with a brush head that is cross-hatched to avoid any clumping.
To buy: $20, beautybar.com.
DiorShow New Look
Expect more from your mascara with this treatment and color in one. The tapered brush is designed to reach every lash, and the curling-and- volumizing formula is infused with a serum that thickens lashes.
To buy: $28.50, dior.com.
Maybelline Cat Eye Washable Mascara
Never dread the makeup-removing portion of your nightly routine again. This budget-friendly wand will give you major color, but it comes off easily with a simple wipe or foaming cleanser when it’s time for bed.
To buy: $6.50, target.com.
