Mascara. For most of us, it's desert island stuff - one of the (admittedly, many) products we wouldn't be caught dead leaving the house without. So when new models hit the market, we're first in line to try them out - and trust us, these three don't disappoint. Add to cart.

1. Laura Mercier Extra Sculpting Mascara, $39,

Love your lashes: 3 new mascaras you need to know about

For an ungodly level of lash, look to Laura Mercier's new volumising mascara. The water-resistant formula doesn't smudge, clump or flake off, instead coating lashes with a creamy, flexible hold that stays looking soft. A moulded brush with dual bristle ends ensures lashes are lengthened, thickened and evenly coated.

3. Clinique Chubby Lash Fattening Mascara, $35,

Love your lashes: 3 new mascaras you need to know about

No fat shaming here - the latest addition to Clinique's Chubby Sticks cohort is the larger-than-life Chubby Lash Fattening Mascara - and in its case, big definitely is beautiful. The oversized tube and brush deliver maxed out lashes with a formula that's safe for sensitive eyes. As well as black (aptly named Jumbo Jet), there are three limited edition shades: Portly Plum, Two Ton Teal and Massive Midnight. They're all available from August 16 - but trust us, they're worth the wait.
