These mascaras are basically lash extensions in a tube

Sometimes you just want a subtle look to bring out your lashes, and other times you really want to bring on the drama. For the latter days – and nights – skip the falsies and break out a volumising mascara. Forget subtlety – go for a mascara that delivers a full fan of fringe. Depending on the level of drama you're after, there a few different volumising options, so we rounded them all up for you.

These are the top volumising mascaras that cover every price point and intensity level.

Yves Saint Laurent Volume Effet Faux Cils Mascara

Warning: People may not believe you when you say you’re not wearing false eyelashes – this mascara is that good. The award-winning formula knows how to bring on the volume and drama. It makes lashes look incredibly full, yet it never clumps or flakes. The formula’s secret weapon is the triple-film complex that coats every single lash with a film to make it curl and keep it in place for a long time. Non-drying, the formula is infused with B5 pro-vitamin to instantly deepen, darken and thicken lashes.

CoverGirl The Super Size Mascara

This award-winning fan favourite is not for wallflowers. It creates full, fanned out lashes with its wand that has super short bristles to catch every hair, delivering 400 per cent more volume. For maximum effect, twirl the brush as you swipe it through your lashes for a major look. Then use the comb side to separate and define. Your fringe will look glossy black and glorious.

L'Oreal Paris Voluminous Makeup Lash Paradise Mascara

The wavy wand boasts 200 bristles to ensure that no lash is left behind, coating every single one for full, feathery lashes. The formula contains extra black pigments for a bold look that’s all about length and volume. It only takes one coat for a full fringe effect.

Dior Diorshow Iconic Mascara

This mascara has achieved cult-like status, and it's easy to see why. It masters unbeatable length, fullness, curl, and overall lash happiness. This formula encourages curl and staves off limp fringe come midday, and when it's layered on top of the lash-fattening primer, super-charged volume quickly arrives.

Tarte Maneater Voluptuous Mascara

After just two coats, this lengthening and curling mascara promises 23 times more lash volume. The soft-flex brush with hundreds of bristles and light-as-air triple-black formula raise lashes at the roots and fans them out for fluttery lashes sans clumping and flaking. The formula is infused with jojoba to moisturise, strengthen and protect lashes, as well as carnauba wax for lengthening, volumising, and a smooth application.

Charlotte Tilbury Full Fat Lashes Mascara

This mascara's groove leaves the perfect amount of formula along your lashes to lift them out and up with each swipe. The tiny bristles capture every single hair to coat it from root to tip with the shiny formula. You’re left with fluttery, voluptuous lashes that are curled, separated and lengthened.

Benefit Cosmetics BADgal BANG! Volumising Mascara

This mascara is literally out of this world. Developed with space technology, it contains aero-space particles to defy gravity so that it won’t weigh down your long, voluminous lashes. Just one swipe wears for a full 36 hours and its brush is made to reach from corner to corner of your upper and lower lashes for 360-degree reach. You can coat on a few layers of the water-resistant, smudge-proof mascara for extra drama, plus it’s infused with ProVitamin B5 to thicken and strengthen.
