Why we love it: The lightweight formula has the amazing ability to “hold” a curl on lashes (even the stick straight kind) for hours on end, and it’s extremely buildable, meaning you can layer on liberal amounts without any spidery clumps.

Why we love it: Luxurious in every way! Besides the formula that does it all (lengthen, thicken, curl), the carbon pigments that deliver the blackest of colors, and the super-soft brush that fluffs up lashes, it also comes in a refillable case that clicks open to reveal a mirror for chic and easy touch-ups on the go. In a word: obsessed.
