Why choose lengthening mascara? You get lush, long (but still natural-looking) lashes without fear of clumping.
Unless you have a lengthening formula with fibers in it, most lengthening formulas will not actually make eyelashes longer. Just seem longer. A formula like Illegal Length Fiber Extensions Mascara has teeny tiny fibers in the formula which attach to lashes and gently “extend” the tips.
Long, willowy lashes are what you get from lengthening mascara. They’re a bit more natural looking than their volumizing counterparts, which give a more “mascara-y” effect and are more prone to clumping if not used right.
Whereas volumizing formulas focus on fattening each lash, lengthening formulas focus on separating and coating each one. Look at the brushes when you choose your lengthening mascara—just like blow-drying hair, the fuller the brush, the more volume you get. If you’re wanting a more natural lash look, opt for a thinner or comb-like wand.
