Just like swiping right on a dating app, you have to go through a lot of "meh" mascaras before finding the tube of your dreams. You know the type: a wand with a brush that coats itself in the right amount of product, and a formula that catches on to each of your lashes for maximum impact.
This fall, there's a handful of new mascaras with grandiose claims of leaving lashes with so much volume and fullness that your friends, co-workers, and strangers won't believe you when you tell them you don't have lash extensions. The best part: these tubes are actually worth their hype.
Here, we've rounded up the best new volumizing mascaras to use this fall.
