Covergirl Lashblast Fusion Mascara, P655
Flordeliza, 65, Sensitive Skin: “Love it!!!! I have very sparse, straight lashes and this mascara gives me fuller lashes without clumping. I’ve tried just about all mascaras in the market and this is the only one I can trust to do the job right. I sweat heavily and I never end up with racoon eyes. And it washes off easily too. Great buy, price wise.”

L’Oréal Paris False Lash Butterfly Wings Waterproof Mascara, on sale at P375
Alexandra, 37, Oily Skin: “I have the typical Asian set of eyelashes—short and straight. Even if I use a lash curler and apply mascara, it ends up looking like a clumpy version of itself. But ever since I started using this particular mascara from L’Oreal, my lashes look significantly longer than [they] really [are]. And the best part is that it does not make my lashes clump together.”

Lancôme Grandiose Mascara, P1,850
Sarah, 20, Oily Skin: “This is seriously the most amazing mascara in the world. It volumizes, lengthens, and fans out all your lashes so perfectly. It’s breathtaking. This mascara is luxury and magic in a bottle. It is rather pricey though. The only reasonable alternative to it are false eyelashes. That’s how good this is.”

Maybelline Volum’ Express Falsies Mascara, P459
Jhoanna, 28, Combination Skin: “OMG, this mascara deserves a 5. THE mascara for me. I have the shortest of the shortest lashes. This product [lengthens] and volumizes lashes like magic, and waterproof means WATERPROOF. It just won’t move from your lashes. And that’s the only con I could possibly find (which isn´t a problem to me), that [it] is easier remove cement than the mascara.”

Lioele Blooming Volume Curling Mascara, P640
Patricia, Combination Skin: “This mascara from Lioele is a reliable product. It has the same price as other Western drugstore brands, but I think this one is better in terms of adding more volume and length to super short lashes. Another great thing is that the packaging is super adorable! I would definitely repurchase this.”

Dolly Wink Volume Mascara 3-in-1 Renewal, on sale at P600
Helene, 20, Combination Skin: “This is my absolute favorite mascara. My eyes dry easily, especially when I have contacts on, but I find this mascara to be much gentler than most I’ve tried. I prefer it to its Long counterpart. It really volumizes my sparse lashes and stays put all day!”

VMV Hypoallergenics Ooh-La-Lash! Volumizing Mascara, P1,015
Karen, 18, Oily Skin: “I first used it when I was 12 because I was naturally curious of the stuff my older sister had. I wore it to school like a diva and surprisingly, no one noticed I was wearing mascara. They only commented that my lashes were really long without asking if I wore anything on. I’m not sure if it was because we were too young back then that we couldn’t distinguish the effects of makeup yet, or it just looked so real. I still use it until now since it doesn’t clump nor smudge. It’s just perfect for someone like me who doesn’t like to go out looking like trash but can’t put enough effort to look good.”

NARS Larger Than Life Lengthening Mascara, P1,350
Bec, 32, Sensitive Skin: “Definitely my Holy Grail mascara! I have straight skimpy lashes and this bad boy separates, thickens and coats them with a rich, deep, intense black pigment. It’s unique brush also does a great job in getting even the tiny lashes on the corners of my eye. I also love that I can literally pile as many coats as I want with zero clumping! In addition, I live in a very humid country and this mascara stays put all day long. It doesn’t smudge, budge, transfer, flake and the best part.. it holds the curl of my lashes like nobody’s business! Seriously, my lashes stay fuller, curled, and flirty for the entire day.”
