by Martha Adams

It’s amazing how much your lashes matter. When they’re long and fluttery, they instantly take your make-up to a whole new level, which is why it’s not surprising that woman are always on the hunt for the perfect mascara. The Holy Grail of lash enhancers, if you will.

And while some women seek more volume in the thickness of their lashes, others are more concerned about the length. So if you’ve tried a gazillion mascaras in an attempt to lengthen your short lashes but to no avail, then these 10 lash lengthening wonders may be just what the doctor ordered…

LASH LENGHTENING MASCARA #1: COVERGIRL LashBlast Length Mascara The Elasta-Nylon™ formula will help give your lashes that extra oomph you’re looking for – without flaking! “Surprised at just how well this works. In the past, most mascaras I've tried have given the same results – whether they promised length, volume or curl. This one actually does a fantastic job at lengthening your lashes, as promised, with no clumps!” – Inga409

LASH LENGHTENING MASCARA #2: Bobbi Brown Lash Glamour Lengthening Mascara The bristles on the mascara wand actually interlock with each individual lash to coat it with pigment and add length. “The bristles act like a comb to separate each lash to give a really nice defined yet natural look. I apply one coat and brush it through thoroughly and it instantly darkens, lengthens and volumises my naturally short lashes. You can apply two coats to add extra length and volume but one coat is sufficient for me as I prefer the more natural look.” – Evanescenessy

LASH LENGHTENING MASCARA #3: Chi Chi 3-D Magic Lash This mascara is one to grab if you’re looking for extra length, definition and curl. “It actually DOES curl, and it actually DOES lengthen, and it actually DOES thicken your lashes. PLUS it does not clump at all which is really important to me.” – Dilshere

LASH LENGHTENING MASCARA #4: freezeframe® INSTANT LASH Extensions The mascara brush deposits tiny synthetic hairs (combined with gel) to the tips of your lashes to extend the length. “After some time of continual brushing of my lashes, I finally got the length that I wanted. It was worth the effort, as my normally stumpy lashes had surprising length. An application of my normal mascara gave me the volume that I seek also.” – scentsation

LASH LENGHTENING MASCARA #5: Clinique High Lengths Mascara The nifty little green wand helps to lengthen, lift and stretch lashes for astounding results. “The wand takes a while to get used to but after that be prepared for long lashes! This is great as it gives length without clumping, flaking or smudging. I will definitely be buying this again.” – Choonie

LASH LENGHTENING MASCARA #6: Mary Kay® Lash-Lengthening Mascara Not only will this mascara help lengthen your eyelashes, but the formula helps condition, nourish and strengthen them, too. “This mascara does exactly what is says it does...it lengthens my lashes and looks natural, though I would recommend it for a natural/ everyday look, not for party/dramatic look.” – Brooke1317

LASH LENGHTENING MASCARA #7: Lancôme Definicils Lengthening Mascara Want long, defined lashes? Then you’ll love what this mascara and the grooved bristles will do for you. “The type of brush with this product makes it extremely easy to apply and get it perfectly applied straight away. The lashes are each individually separated and they look very much individually defined and coloured black.” – softness

LASH LENGHTENING MASCARA #8: Mirenesse Secret Weapon 24HR Mascara If you have sensitive eyes or wear contact lenses, you can be sure that this lengthening, thickening and curling mascara will deliver great results without irritating your eyes. “I wasn't quite sure what to expect, but I'm truly impressed with the product. It doesn't irritate my sensitive eyes, doesn't flake or clump, and gives a nice lift to my flaccid lashes. This really is a super mascara!” – cat lover

LASH LENGHTENING MASCARA #9: L’Oréal Paris Double Extension Beauty Tubes The two-step mascara first coats your lashes to strengthen and nourish them and then applies lengthening tubes to each lash to make them appear 80 per cent longer. “Even just applying the white base coat, you can notice lengthened lashes and after applying the mascara section, my lashes look amazing! It holds the curl of the lashes for the whole day. The mascara isn’t clumpy so it looks like natural long thick lashes.” – Tried and Tested

LASH LENGHTENING MASCARA #10: ModelCo FIBRE LASH The nylon fibres in this mascara work wonders to add length to your lashes. Plus, the mascara is smudge and tear-proof! “With practice I have found that this mascara is amazing! My lashes have never looked longer and its great that now I don't constantly have to make sure my falsies are still glued in place. The fibres have great staying power and the payoff is great. All in all a really good product!” – Caittt93
