Wondering which is the best Lancôme mascara? You've come to the right place. As a mascara-obsessed beauty editor, I’ve tested every single one, so I can confidently say that the six picks below are the stand-out best from the brand. 

The luxurious French brand is known for creating some of the best mascaras on the market, and because of that, they have a wide range of options. Whether you're trying to pick the best volumising mascaras, or if you have naturally short lashes and need to find the best lengthening mascara, Lancôme has an option for you. 

As someone who generally sticks to affordable mascaras, I was curious to see how these iconic options, with their slightly higher price points, measured up. I put them through their paces and narrowed it down to the final selection of favourites.

How we tested the best Lancôme Mascaras

Picking the best Lancôme mascara was a thoroughly fun experience - I’m now a real convert to the brand. I received all of the brands' mascaras and tested each one over the course of a few weeks. To make testing fair to each option, I tried each one a couple of times, to make sure I had given each product the full experience of wear. The main points I focused on were:

  • Ease of application
  • Wand shape
  • Comfortability of wear
  • Longevity
  • Effort of removal

Just a quick note up top - a big thing I noticed was that not many of the Lancôme mascaras are available in brown, which is something to note if you prefer a natural-looking, best brown mascara. If you tend to stick to black tones though, that shouldn't be too off-putting.
