If you are trying to choose the best lengthening mascara, there are a few things you should keep in mind if you want to make an informed decision. One of the most important things to consider are the ingredients of the lengthening mascara you choose. Other things you might want to think about are whether it will clump up on your eyelashes or if you prefer waterproof or not. Additionally, it might not be a bad idea to look up the mascara you are considering buying on the Internet to see if anyone has written any positive or negative reviews on it. The best lengthening mascara will probably have more positive reviews than negative.

The ingredients of the best lengthening mascara for you should probably matter because mascara goes on your eyes, which can be sensitive to some ingredients. You probably don't want to be stuck wearing mascara all day long that burns or itches your eyes. In most cases, mascara that is irritating to the eyes is made from synthetic chemicals that are slightly toxic. These chemicals seem to have no adverse effects on some people, but they might on others. Look for mascara that is made from mostly natural ingredients if you want to try to be sure your lengthening mascara doesn't irritate your eyes.

Even if a mascara claims it will lengthen or make your lashes appear longer, that doesn't necessarily mean it won't clump up on them. Many types of lengthening mascaras also come in non-clumping form, and this is what you should look for if clumping is something you want to avoid. Lengthening mascara may also come in waterproof form, but whether to choose waterproof mascara is typically a matter of personal preference. Some people prefer waterproof mascara because it tends to stay on longer without smudging, but others are annoyed by the fact that it is usually much harder to take off at the end of the day.

You can probably do a quick Internet search on the brand of lengthening mascara you are considering and find reviews on it. Many people who have used a product take time to let everyone know what they thought of it by posting their experiences with the product on various Internet sites. This could be a very valuable resource for you if you are in search of the best lengthening mascara. A product that has a lot of positive reviews will typically be your best bet, and knowing beforehand that many people were pleased with the product will likely make you feel more confident about spending your money on it.

I love to use lengthening mascara, but you definitely have to be careful when using it to avoid clumps. I have found that the best way to apply it is to focus on the tips of your lashes because when you put it on this way it is less likely to clump.
