What clumped, what ran and what truly transformed our real-woman eye makeup testers

We had 12 beauty-junkie members of our Total Beauty Squad test out so-called lengthening and volumizing mascaras. Their verdict: You could spend a fortune on the best -- but you don't have to.

I remove waterproof mascara with coconut oil. works great. I put in on my lashes, let it sit for a few minutes, then I dab it off with a soft, wet microfiber towel. Also Clinique, take the day off remover works great, I use them both, and I have had no eyelash loss using these either

Dior show is the best, but too expensive

gonna have to cast my vote on L'Oreal Volminous out of all these listed. Dior? I have had it and though it was pretty cool, not that many dollars cool...Not much difference in the two. Oh, and removing mascara with oil is horrible for me. Did that a couple of times much to my dismay. Better make sure to get it ALL off because somehow the smallest amount would make it into my eyes and everything woul be a blurry mess. Never again....unless I have to of course. There are better ways.

The L'Oreal Voluminous mascara is, and will probably always be, the go to drug store mascara. This does actually out perform a lot of the pricey brands too!

L'Oreal Voluminous is AWESOME. Works as well as a lot of more expensive products.

Dior Show Black Out of is such a good product for a more dramatic look. Definitely not a daytime mascara but one coat over a traditional black mascara and you have lashes that really pop for night time smokey eyes.
