    Lengthening
    Revlon’s new lengthening mascara has a fiber formula that helps to extend each lash as you glide through them with the brush, yet that exact formula also makes it easy to build on said lashes. The plush blush also helps with volume for super flirty, long lashes.

    This brand-new dual mascara kit from Physicians Formula is the easiest way to apply false lashes, ever. The set comes with a black lengthening mascara, as well as an “extensions” wand, which is a spoolie for applying false-lash fibers. All you have to do is apply a swipe of black mascara, apply a swipe of your extensions fibers, and then seal it all in with the black mascara. That’s it — and you'll have lashes that look like falsies. Plus, you'll have saved all that time it takes to glue on a strip.

    Fun fact: This formula won over one of our editors in a big way.

    Physicians Formula Eye Booster Instant Doll Lash Extension Kit, $14.99, available at Ulta Beauty.

    Demi Lovato’s first makeup line in collaboration with New York Color is certainly a good one – but one of our favorite products is the Lovatics mascara, due to it’s lengthening skills. With a dual-fiber brush and a formula that has both beeswax and carnauba wax to help with volume and length, this mascara is a steal.

    Lovatics by Demi Mascara, $4.47, available at Walmart.
