It's a simple fact of life: Not all mascaras are created equal. Some provide amazing volume, others lengthen your lashes like a pro and some just end up smudged under your eyes by mid-day. Enter tubing mascara, the secret weapon of the mascara world. Most mascaras work by coating your lashes in pigment. Tubing mascara is different: It wraps your lashes in itty-bitty flexible polymers that will not budge throughout the day. And don't worry, application is exactly the same as traditional mascara. Plus, removal is also a breeze: The tubes slide away with mere soap and water (yes, you can see them), so there's no need for heavy-duty makeup removers that leave your skin dry and irritated. Ready to try tubing mascara for yourself? Keep reading for our faves.

Japanese beauty products are seriously innovative, so it makes sense that a Japanese brand like D.J.V. Miaray would have a lengthening tubing mascara in its portfolio (in fact, this is one of the biggest bestsellers in Japan!). This tubing mascara is formulated with fruit and royal jelly to condition lashes, plus it's sweat-proof, so you can work out without worrying about dealing with raccoon eyes.
Many tubing mascaras tout lengthening your lashes as their main benefit. But if adding volume is what you want, set your sights on this one. The formula creates a 360-degree coating around your lashes that amplifies volume for up to 24 hours without budging.
