Sephora Must-Have Mascara Innovations‏

Bold, voluminous and very sexy, lashes are all the rage this season from daring to sultry. Whether you are looking to lengthen, thicken, plump or define, Sephora offers a range of formulas to help achieve the lash look you want. Sephora gives you an eye-opener to the season’s must-have mascara innovations.

A Mascara Fit for Everyone
Crank up the volume with the new Buxom Amplified Lash Mascara ($22). This mascara wand features an expandable brush that elongates to add volume and then shortens to accentuate length and separation to create the perfect lash for any occasion. *exclusively at Sephora

Curl Conscious
Masterminded in Japan, the curved triple-sphere brush on Fairy Drops Scandal Queen Mascara ($24) hugs the lash line, while flexible bristles coat lashes with curling polymers and lengthening fibers, lifting and elongating. *exclusively at Sephora

Unbelievable Lashes
Lashes so dramatically defined, they’re beyond belief is what we get from the new Benefit They’re Real! Mascara ($22). The genius is in the ball-tipped brush—it picks up where many wands leave off, adding length and impact at every angle, with a long-wearing, glossy formula.

Get Dolled-Up!
A luscious lash pairs perfectly with any fall look and can be easily achieved with the new Lancôme HYPNÔSE DOLL LASHES Mascara ($25). This mascara is made to separate, lift, and define, replicating fanned out doll-like lashes and reaching even the corners using its unique cone-shaped brush. Bat a lash, or two!

Show-Stopping Shine
A newcomer to the lash category, the new Hourglass Film Noir Lash Lacquer ($28) is an ultra-glossy, inky black top coat for lashes that completes any lash look. Using the unique brush applicator and latex-like formula, apply this lash topcoat on top of mascara to quickly take your look from day to night. *exclusively at Sephora

In celebration of The Muppets film starring Amy Adams and Jason Segel opening later this year, OPI collaborated with Disney to create 12 puppet-approved nail polishes! “Not only do the Muppet characters inspire fun, bright and joyful colors, the fashionable Miss Piggy lends her name to three high-shine pink-based hues,” says OPI creative director Suzi Weiss-Fischmann. The polishes hit stores in November for $8.50 each, just in time for the film’s November 23rd release.
