Shop Lengthening & Defining

Not everyone is here for a bold lash look. For some of us, mascara is all about keeping things light, long and perfectly defined. Defining and lash lengthening mascaras work to elongate the lashes while keeping things natural, instead of clumpy. Explore some of the best lengthening and separating mascaras at every price point and discover the best mascaras to make lashes look longer.


Our favourite natural looking lengthening mascaras

Lengthening mascaras are perfect for creating a natural, barely there look. What is the best mascara for length? Our bet is on the Jane Iredale PureLash Lengthening Mascara, which is the best lengthening and separating mascara that also conditions the lashes. Another great natural formula is the Nude by Nature Allure Defining Mascara for a light, fluttery look. This is one of the best natural looking lengthening mascara at an affordable price point.


Our favourite mascaras for long, thick lashes

Lengthening mascaras can also help you achieve a voluminous look. Try the Estée Lauder Double Wear Zero-Smudge Lengthening Mascara for a bold, but defined look that will last all day. The best mascara to thicken and lengthen lashes from the drugstore is the L'Oreal Paris Volume Million Lashes Mascara, which delivers lash separation and volume.


Our favourite mascaras that separate and lengthen lashes

Define and lengthen with the mascara that truly captures every lash. One of our best defining mascaras for that spiky lash look is the IT Cosmetics Superhero Mascara. It’s the best lengthening mascara with a buildable formula that works at volumizing and defining each individual lash. We also recommend the Benefit They're Real! Lengthening Mascara to take your lashes to all new heights, providing an enviable glossy finish.

Not the biggest fan

I would very excited for this but found it very watery and took so long to dry so it left marks all around my eyes unfortunately.

Purchased the Extatic version of this about 6mths ago then this one. I found both to be exactly the same. They're fantastic when used with the primer. I always use a primer, Loreal's is the best I've used too. But...I do not like the brush on this mascara. It's too fat and lumpy and I get mascara all over the place. Please change to similar brush that's in the primer.
