Marco Antonio’s Top Five

HUNGER's Beauty Editor picks his top five mascaras of the moment in the first instalment of his weekly beauty column.

A mascara is just a mascara, right? Wrong.

Better Than Sex Mascara, Too Faced, £24.

Better Than Sex Mascara, Too Faced

Better Than Sex Mascara by Too Faced is one of the most talked-about mascaras out there. The formulation builds very quickly on to the lashes and the brush is a bit bulkier so it is easier for building base volume. The formula is a bit dry but that’s good: it means your lashes don’t stick together between coats.

FetishEyes Mascara, Pat McGrath Labs, £27.

FetishEyes Mascara, Pat McGrath Labs

Pat McGrath Labs FetishEyes Mascara does a little bit of everything. The peptide-infused formula offers volume, length, and fullness without getting dry or flaky. Plus, it conditions lashes so they look soft and strong.

The Les Yeux Noirs - Lash Amplifying Lacquer Mascara, Christian Louboutin Beauty, £55.

The Les Yeux Noirs – Lash Amplifying Lacquer Mascara, Christian Louboutin Beauty

The Les Yeux Noirs – Lash Amplifying Lacquer Mascara by Christian Louboutin Beauty has modern art deco vibe and packaging. The wetter and shinier formula gives your lashes an almost vinyl effect. It’s also more volumizing, visibly plumping up lashes and filling in the lash line, the Les Yeux Noirs mascara is defining, long-lasting, and great at holding curls.

Mascara L'Obscur, GUCCI, £30.

Mascara L’Obscur, GUCCI

GUCCI’s Mascara L’Obscur smoothly glides onto lashes without clumping or flaking, and gives a dramatic lift – you can almost skip the lash curler with this one.

Volume Disturbia Mascara, GIVENCHY, £23.50.

Volume Disturbia Mascara, GIVENCHY

GIVENCHY Volume Disturbia Mascara is a must-have. I like how this mascara gives a false lash affect without too much effort! The applicator is great and glides through the lashes and gives each one individual volume and length, and it’s long-lasting.
