I'll always be the first person to admit that mascara is a very personal thing. It's quite a hot topic among beauty editors because it always sparks such heated debate. One may love a certain formula with all their heart while another would throw it in the trash the first chance they get. There are, however, a few formulas out there that we can find common ground on. When I find a mascara that absolutely never clumps or flakes, there's cause for celebration and an endless stream of praise. 

If you're also a fan of mascara that doesn't give you spider eyes, then you've come to the right place. I asked beauty editors to share the clump-free mascara formulas that they just can't be without. Ahead, find all their top picks.
