While many beauty products fall in and out of style, there’s one that continues to stand the test of time: Lancôme’s Définicils Lengthening and Defining Mascara (Buy It, $28, nordstrom.com). The iconic mascara not only has dedicated fans that have been using it for decades, but it’s also currently Nordstrom’s most-reviewed mascara, with more than 1,500 five-star ratings.

The iconic mascara wins over wearers by enhancing the length of eyelashes without adding excess volume. Instead of over-the-top glam, the final look is natural and defined—the epitome of Parisian-chic beauty, and a close rival to the wispy length achieved with lash extensions.

It’s optimized for this au naturale-style, thanks to a specialized formula and brush. The ophthalmologist-tested formula has unique polymers that evenly coat the lash from root to tip for noticeable length, while the “hedgehog” bristle pattern on the applicator brush carefully dispenses just the right amount of product to prevent clumping.

Of course, a mascara with this much hype has a special application process. Lancôme recommends that users coat their bottom lashes with mascara before the top ones to prevent unwanted smudging. It’s also best applied using a side-to-side wiggle motion that adds extra depth to the base and prevents the need for eyeliner.

If you think this mascara sounds like the perfect pick, you’re not alone. Multiple mascara devotees called this product “the best ever” and confidently declared it the only mascara they’d ever use. Another reviewer took it even further by revealing they’d actually kept this mascara in their beauty arsenal for over 30 years—though admitted to occasionally straying to cheaper alternatives before always coming back.

With the “no-makeup” makeup look continuing to trend in 2020, it’s definitely worth giving this cult-favorite Lancôme mascara a try. Plus, with three different shades to choose from, there’s bound to be a color that works just for you. And you never know, it could even earn a lifelong place in your beauty routine, too.

I believe the reviews, but at the moment I have been in love with Lancôme Monsieur Big. Once I apply the mascara once I don’t have to worry about my lashes until it’s time to remove it. It makes your lashes appear bolder and pop as if you’re wearing fake lashes..if you put at least two coats.
