2. Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara
The word on the street is that the Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara delivers on bigger, better lashes. Plus, it is also lengthening, volumizing, and smudge-proof, with users on MakeupAlley claiming that it can hold a curl for even the straightest of Asian lashes. Sounds right up our alley!
3. Revlon Super Length Mascara
This is primarily a lengthening mascara, its luscious formula gliding on easily to give you an innocent, doe-eyed look. It is also non-clumpy and builds easily for dark, full lashes.
The brush even comes with a tapered tip that allows you to get to even the smallest of your bottom lashes, which is sure to shave minutes off your makeup routine. Score!
4. Miniso All Weather No Smudge Mascara
It’s rare to find mascaras that cost under five dollars these days, but this one by Miniso fits the bill! It gives volume, length, and is easy to remove, according to reviewers.
With a price like that, it’s definitely a steal, so snag yourself one the next time you pop by your nearest Miniso.

6. Heroine Make Super Waterproof Volume & Curl Mascara
This is a definite favourite amongst those with sparse, straight Asian lashes! Its formula is also stated to be able to survive Singapore’s hot and humid weather, with it containing 5mm fibres and a ‘curl lock’ that keeps your lengthened and volumized lashes in place all day. Sign us up!
The Heroine Make Super Waterproof Volume & Curl Mascara is available at all Watsons and Sasa outlets and retails for S$21.90.
7. Essence Lash Princess False Lash Effect
