We all want long, lush lashes that make our eyes pop, but only the best mascaras can get the job done. We're talking those holy grail mascaras with wands that grab and coat every last lash, formulas that let you layer without clumps and give you the volume, length and definition you crave — all day long, without smudging. Is that really so much to ask?

Our readers didn't think so, either, which is why they tested out mascara after mascara to come up with the definitive ranking of the best mascaras. The list includes the latest and greatest clump-free formulas with genius, futuristic-looking wands as well as tried-and-true classics. Whether you're looking for length, volume, curl (or all of the above), we've got the perfect mascara for you and your lashes. Drum roll, please.
