Try Diorshow Plum Mascara ($24, sephora.com). This limited edition version of Dior’s cult-favorite mascara takes the beloved bestselling formula and makes it a gorgeous shade of deep plum for the fall. The jumbo brush crates impossibly long, thick , dramatic lashes for an ultra-glam, lase eyelash look.
