Another great option is the Estée Lauder Sumptuous Extreme Waterproof Lash Multiplying Volume Mascara, which offers 10 hours of smudge proof wear.

Curling mascaras offer that fluttery, false lash effect.

It’s the perfect brown mascara for a pared back look, with all the benefits of a tubing mascara.
