Length, Precision, or Volume? My 3 favorite Black Mascaras 🖤

Hi all! I wanted to share the three black mascaras I’ve been rotating between lately. There’s a specific reason I like each of them, and since we are having to wear masks so often, I realize that mascara is an important essential for so many of us.
Here’s the lowdown on each one:
1. DHC Double Protection Mascara
This one has been a favorite for days when I know I might tear up (I’m prone to laugh-cry, especially when watching comedy movies). It’s water resistant, lush, lengthening, and has a wand that will get the smaller hairs.
2. MAC Pro Beyond Twisted Lash Mascara
As dark as black mascara gets (or at least as dark as I’ve seen). The darkness and wand have to be my two favorite parts about this mascara. I’ve seen thin wands like this, but haven’t seen one as flexible for sure. This is another mascara great for getting the smaller lashes.
3. Clarins Supra Volume Mascara
This creates a very fanned out, intense, lash look. The wand is a bit thicker, which works towards more volumized lashes. This is my go-to most days, when I just want to look super awake. Since my lashes (thanks mom and dad) are naturally pretty long, my biggest concern is volume as opposed to length.
All in all, choosing the right black mascara just comes down to your personal needs and aspirations. Do you seek to lengthen? Darken? Volumize? Know what you’re going for, and I’m sure one of these three will do the trick for you.

  • Patti Scott

    What a great review! You make me want to try all three mascaras. There is something good about all of them. Right now I'm using Milk Makeup Mascara, the one with cannabis in it and it's good for my lashes.

  • Olivia

    Thank you for sharing Malvika ❤️ I want to try all of them !!! Now I'm using Nars climax extreme mascara and I like it , it doesn't smudge and my lashes are really fluffed up .

  • Alexis Kyle

    I love this!

  • Pauline

    Clarins Supra Volume Mascara sounds and looks great on. Want to try MAC too. Good video review posted for three types of Mascara. Thanks for sharing this post. H. T. Giving!

    The MAC Pro Beyond Twisted Lash Mascara has a really cool wand! I’ve never seen one like that before! My goals are always length first, volume second, and water resistance third. That being said, I don’t like waterproof mascaras because I’ve heard they’re bad for eyelash health. 🤨 My go to mascara is Tarte’s Lights, Camera, Lashes because it performs well in all of these categories! I’m open to having other mascaras in my life, but I haven’t found another with an overall higher performance level.

    So beautiful, so true mascara is important right now, cause that's what people see our eyes jejje ,I haven't try any of those need to .😊

  • Patricia

    Great selection of mascaras, I haven't tried the DHC mascara, I'm curious because your lashes look amazing after application, I tried the other two mascaras, love the MAC wand type because it helps fully coat the tiniest thin lashes, the Clarins provides good volume but I need to coat it with a different waterproof mascara to keep it in place. I usually use a couple of mascaras to achieve volume, length, and get a decent curl on my thin straight lashes Thank you for a great demo!

  • Lovie Croll

    I prefer volumizing mascara, they seem to work best for me, thought I haven't tried this brand.. Clarins Supra Volume Mascara looks awesome!! Would love to try the💘

  • Marlena Fannin

    Those are 3 really great mascaras. They really dramatize your already great looking lashes. I believe out of the 3, I would like to try the first kind (DHC double protection mascara). I have really thin lashes so lately I have been using Maybelline New York Lash Sensational Full Fan Effect Waterproof. You are so lucky to have great eye lashes. Thanks for sharing 😉👍.

  • Regina

  • Christine Czaiczynski

    I love the video and they all sound really good. I may have to try each one to see which one will be my go to one that I like best.

  • Betty Gibson

    I still have not found a mascara that I like. All the brands that I have tried either clumps or leaves little flakes under my eyes. I love the video. Thank you for sharing.

  • Diana Hoffmann Laursen

  • Jaxgma

    You get great results with all three, must be why they are your favorites. Your lashes look long without any mascara.

  • Laura

    I like the MAC one , I like those types of wants.

  • Rukhsana

    my favorite lip liner is the kvd coven and i like to combine that with kvd liquid lipstic requiem. in a good lipliner i look for smooth and glidable belndability. i want matte and creamy but long wearing. and stops form lipsticks and lipglosses from bleeding. i prefare the dhc double wear mascara because the bristles are thin so its easy for me to wear on both top and bottom lashes. and it makes lashes look wider, thicker, longer and blacker.

  • Melissa Sprinkle

    Gorgeous eyelashes and eyes

  • Stephanie

    I usually look for a volume/precision mix mascara. Those are the 2 most important features im looking for!

  • Tonilynn Rosario

    all 3 look like amazing Mascaras.

  • Rachael Tam

    Great article and video! Very well written and well said. My favorite Mascara from this article would have to be the MAC Mascara, only because it's from MAC. I've never tried any of them but MAC has some really great Mascaras. I look for Mascaras that lengthen and thicken my lashes. I have really short thin lashes so I need all the help I can get. Lol My favorite Mascara right now is IT Cosmetics Blowout Mascara. It makes my lashes look longer and fuller but still natural looking. (unless I accidentally put too much on!) Lol For the "no makeup" look days, I like to use Maelle's Above and Beyond Mascara in Brown. It lengthens my lashes and makes them look fuller but they still look like I have nothing on. It's actually pretty incredible if you ask me? Lol If I have a great lash day, I feel so much better about myself. I have much more confidence and feel like I can rule the world. Perfect lashes and brows. Lol My favorite Lipstick and Lip Liner Set would have to be my Gerard Cosmetics Lip Pencil in shade "Immortal" with my Estee Lauder Pure Color Envy Liquid Metallic Lipstick in shade "Glo-Coral" but that's only for looks because the Lipstick isn't smudge proof. For convenience, quality and looks, my new We Makeup "Even If" Set. We Makeup Lipstick in shade "IF" and We Makeup Lip Liner in shade "Even". This is a brand that I discovered in my "The Box" Beauty Box. I had never heard of it before that but they are incredible products. You should definitely give them a try! I bet they would look amazing on your skin tone. Anywho, thank you for sharing this great Mascara Set with us! I really wanna try the MAC Mascara out of them all. Keep up the great work! You are such a talented writer!

    Oh yes, I know the old fib of some mascara being waterproof, until the time comes to put it To the test!! I remember a few years back trying out a mascara that had sworn to be waterproof!! Heck, for 29 bucks it should’ve been dynamic!! It even had a lash enhancer with it!! Well I was so disappointed from the start, as I’m putting it on, it’s smearing everywhere, I couldn’t get this stuff to stop, I was just like ,(wth)!!! I’m a chef and I was getting ready to introduce my staff and menu for the night, I didn’t have enough time to wash the crap off my face, and I could just feel it in my eye, and running down my face!! Whew!!! That was a lot!! So now I use cover girl waterproof black mascara, in the orange tube! There’s no running, no clumping, no Bambi on crack look, no making your eyes blurry! Just make up, and I’m fine with that!!!

  • Crissy Anderson

    You have long lashes already so it's hard to choose. I, on the other hand, need all the help!! Give me all the length, bold, volume anything I can get!! Between my eyelashes and eyebrows, I don't know which is worse!! But, I would pick DHC. I've been crying alot these days, the holidays are just an emotional time for me so, I would need the water resistant, plus I like the smaller wand. Thank you for your review!

  • Stephanie

    I would have to pick the 3rd Clarins Supra Volume Mascara because my lashes need help! Lol Mine or super thin so anything that makes the fuller

  • Sara mcnair

    Have to go with the DHC. I had to drastically reduce my eye makeup over the last few years due to needing frequent eye drops during the day. Always looking for a good waterproof option.
