Most women want longer, thicker lashes and beauty companies have long been creating so-called 'miracle products'. Here are three mascaras that may add a little magic.

Lancome's L'Extreme (HK$220) is said to give lashes an instant extension of up to 60 per cent using its Fibrestretch formula. The Extreme Lash brush attaches supple fibres to every eyelash, adding length, while the wand's flexibility gives lashes a curved affect. Available at all Lancome counters.

Fresh's Firebird (HK$180) creates full, fluffy lashes for a feathery look. The uniquely shaped brush and ultra-black formula delivers a glamorous 1970s look. It contains restorative sea buckthorn oil, protective red algae and fortifying panthenol (vitamin B5) to help condition and strengthen each lash. Available at Lane Crawford stores.

Nars Black Orchid (HK$220) accentuates the eye, creating longer, thicker lashes. The cylindrical wand design allows for easy application, reaching the most delicate lashes on the inner corner of the eye, while adding colour, volume and length. Available at Lane Crawford, Pacific Place, Admiralty.
