10 Best Mascaras Available in India
By Contributor: Monica
I always wonder how some girls are born with beautiful long voluminous eyelashes (lucky bitches). Whenever I happen to meet someone like this, I just can’t help staring at their gorgeous eyelashes (jealousy kills me) because I have, barely there, thin lashes. Now this is where the Mascara, just like the Superheroes in movies comes and rescues me from the killing jealousy. Long Hail the mighty man who discovered Mascara! Before buying a Mascara, always introspect the reason why you want to buy mascara. Just like a face cream, every girl needs different mascara according to the eyelashes concerns. One may need lengthening one, other volumizing one and yet another may need a curling one. So you need to read reviews to decide the best mascara for you before you buy.
This post compiles the top 10 mascaras available in India (both high end and drugstore), so that all you girls out there can choose your Superhero and get those beautiful and perfect pair of eyes.
1. Benefit Cosmetics They’re Real Mascara
This baby is raved around the world by beauty bloggers. It is a jet-black mascara that lengthens, curls, volumizes, lifts, and separates lashes for a spectacular “out-to-here” look. It’s specially designed brush features staggered bristles that grab close to the root, boosting length and volume beyond belief. The custom-domed tip uses precision bristles to lift, define, and curl even your tiniest lashes. Price: Rs.1850 at Sephora, Delhi.
2. Lancome Hypnose Drama Instant Full body volume Mascara
Lancome is known worldwide for their mascaras. This mascara has an S-shaped brush which gives everything one can expect from a mascara. With little clumping, which can be forgiven, it gives an almost false lashes effect with long, thick and voluminous curled lashes. The curling effect also stays for long. Price- 27 or around Rs.1500 in India.
3. Estee Lauder Sumptuous Bold Volume Lifting Mascara
This is available in 2 colors- black and brown. It doesn’t clump, covers every lash and adds volume, length, definition and curl. It gives not a dramatic but a very natural volume and finish. Compliments guaranteed. Available in both washable and waterproof versions. Priced- $20.5 or around Rs.1805 in India.
4. YSL Volume Effet Faux Cils Mascara
This Luxurious Mascara achieves an intense, dramatic lash look in a single stroke, for lashes that stop traffic with the blink of an eye. Its secret is the Triple-Film Complex: a film-coating for intensity, a conditioning film for curve, and a fixing film for long-lasting effectiveness. Does not clump at all and actually gives a false lashes effect. Price Rs.1900
5. Loreal Volume Million Lashes Mascara
This is one of the luxurious looking mascaras but easy on pocket. It gives lot of dramatic volume and holds curl also quite well but falls short on lengthening part. Dries quickly with little to no clumping. Not waterproof. At the price it comes, it can easily give high end mascaras a run for their money. Price: Rs.700
6. Le Volume de Chanel Mascara
This high-precision mascara achieves instant volume and intensely lush color in a single stroke. Its innovative formula expands, plumping lashes to their fullest. The exclusive new ‘Snowflakes’ brush combines long and short bristles to deliver an extreme, eye-opening effect. Is available in 4 colors. Price $30 and around Rs.2500 in India.
Once applied the mascara literally thickens the lashes by forming a sort of dull un-lustrous coating and is prone to drying up really quickly. There is hardly any need for a second coat unless you have super-thin lashes. Also it has nothing make up like in its finish; it is very natural in the final finish. Put it and it stays as it is. Smooth. Intact. Price: Rs.2555
8. L’oreal False Lash Architect 4D Effect Waterproof Mascara
This is not as dramatic as the volume million one but gives a nice soft and natural look to the eyes. Covers each lash intensely and does not clump. Is waterproof. Can be your daytime mascara for those natural looking fluttering lashes. Price: Rs.735
9. Clinique High Impact Extreme Volume Mascara
This one in one stroke makes lashes dense and long. Does not clump, dries quickly and gives the eyes a lifted look. Gives a dramatic effect and lasts day long. Holds curl also quite well. Price: Rs.1600
10. Lancome Hypnose Precious Cells Mascara
Lancome Lash volumising mascara is enriched with precious plant cell extracts and instantly makes your lashes look stronger, fuller and amplified. Holds curl for long and does not melt in harsh summers too. Though it gives the required volume and length but is not that dramatic. Again can be a good daytime mascara for many. Price: Rs.1650
