If there’s one product you can rely on to deliver an enviable lash look, it’s a drugstore mascara.
Mascaras have a short shelf life and need to be replaced often, so you may as well pick up a more affordable option that won’t break your bank, and can still deliver your tall order of volume, length, and curl. The following mascaras can easily rival a high-end product, so keep an eye out for your next holy grail mascara in this list.
L’Oréal Paris Voluminous Lash Paradise Washable Mascara
This volumizing mascara delivers feathery soft lashes with incredible definition and length. Its fiber wand glides on each individual lash evenly and effortlessly, beautifully outlining the shape of your eye for a full Bambi look free of clumping and smudging.
Maybelline Falsies Lash Lift Washable Mascara
Maybelline has been coming out with popular mascaras that meet our lash needs since forever. However, I’m personally a huge fan of lash lifts and Maybelline’s Falsies Lash Lift Mascara which mimics a dramatic lift that you get at the salon, with its double-curved wand leaving your lashes long, full, and lifted from root to tip.
Essence Lash Princess False Lash Effect Mascara
This is the most inexpensive option on the list for the budget-conscious beauty babe. Essence’s Lash Princess has a very lightweight formula with a spoolie that is easy to control and creates a voluminous falsies effect. It has great separation and definition, but you’re in for a bigger shock when you see its length and volume game.
L’Oréal Voluminous Mascara in Carbon Black
A timeless mascara that’s been around for decades and remains a bestseller for a good reason. It’s buildable, clump-resistant, and formulated with panthenol and ceramide-R to strengthen and intensify lashes. I also combine it with L’Oréal’s Lash Paradise mascara when I’m looking for maximum volume and definition.
NYX On The Rise Liftscara
This is a lifting and volumizing mascara that gives you the instant lift needed from an everyday mascara. The rounded yet hourglass-shaped applicator is perfect for straight lashes as its sturdy brush catches and coats each lash with its matte black lash-lifting formula, making my eyes really pop.
