Pump up the volume

With Valentine's Day looming, it's time to nail down that formula for long, flirty lashes. We've created our list of our 10 favorite mascaras - ever - so you're sure to find the one for you.

Pump up the volume

Givenchy Phenomen'Eyes Mascara

The secret to Givenchy Phenomen'Eyes ($28)? An incredible, unique brush that looks like a spiky ball and allows the mascara to reach each and every single lash for gorgeous length and separation

DiorShow Mascara

A staple in many makeup kits, a mascara roundup would be incomplete without DiorShow Mascara ($24). A true gold standard in mascara, this product curls, lengthens and thickens your lashes for the chic, dramatic look you'd expect from Dior.

DuWop Lash Venom

From DuWop, the brand that created the tingling, plumping Lip Venom phenomenon, comes a plumping sensation for your lashes: Lash Venom ($24). The product's fabulous formula includes the hair-strengthener Procapil, which not only volumizes your lashes but also conditions them so they'll actually grow softer over time.

Julie Hewett Rose-Scented Mascara

Do you need a scented mascara? Probably not. But will you want one after trying Julie Hewett's Rose-Scented Mascara ($20)? Absolutely. The subtle, lovely rose scent is addictive and the calming properties of the rose extract are great, especially for those with sensitive eyes. Scent aside, it's a fabulous product and is particularly notable for its ability to stay put all day long.

Mirabella Lash Essential Mascara

For the ultimate fanned-out look for your lashes, try Mirabella's Lash Essential Mascara ($19.49). Use with Mirabella's Lash Therapy conditioner and Lash Definition Primer for the ultimate lash-lengthening routine.

Too Faced Lash Injection

For the look of fake lashes or lash extensions without the price or hassle, turn to Too Faced Lash Injection ($19.50). This show-stopping mascara has a 3-D formula that creates extension-like mini tubes around each lash and is remarkably weatherproof.

MUD Cream Mascara

Worried about clumping? Fear not with MUD's Cream Mascara ($14). In a unique squeezable tube, this rich formula coats your lashes for serious length and volume without any messy clumping or smudging. Wet n' Wild

Maybelline the Colossal Volum' Express Mascara

For a serious glam nighttime look at a very reasonable price, you can't beat Maybelline's the Colossal mascara ($7.49), which promises nine times the volume. The Glam Black color is perfect for creating a high-drama look.

MegaWink Mascara

At an unbeatable price, you can't afford to not try Wet n' Wild's MegaWink Mascara ($2.99), which has a large, curved brush that is fantastic for curling lashes.

Covergirl LashBlast Mascara

A solid, everyday mascara at a great price, it's no surprise that the volumizing LashBlast Mascara ($6.79) is one of the most popular mascaras on the market.
