If I could only wear one makeup product for the rest of my life, it would be mascara. I love how it instantly makes me feel a bit more glamorous, especially high-end mascaras.
Now when I look for a mascara, I want one that pretty much does it all. I want long, voluminous, yet defined lashes. No clumps wanted here, well most of the time…There are certain days a nice clumpy one is just what I’m looking for.
For this series, I tried over 20 different mascaras. I tried drugstore, high-end, fiber mascara, and everything in between.
For my testing process, I tried each one. After applying it, if I was impressed, I put it the good pile. If it wasn’t so great, it went in the bad pile. I then retested all of the good and narrowed them down to the best.
This post is specifically about high-end mascaras. If that isn’t your thing, don’t worry. I did a best drugstore mascaras post too!
Best High-End Mascaras
Lancôme Monsieur Big
This wins for best overall. It made the lashes bigger and more dramatic by adding volume and length, without looking overly clumpy.
Benefit Roller Lash
Winner for defining and curling. The mascara has thin bristles, that lifts and curls your lashes. Plus the formula is made to help nourish your lashes.
Tarte Gifted Amazonian Clay

Tubing masara is continuing to grow in popularity. It lasts all day and can be removed with just water. If you are looking to pick some up, the Hourglass version is the best high-end option.
