We all know the instant glam effect of mascara, but what’s the best way to get that look for under $10? Luckily, I’ve found drugstore mascara that lengthens, thickens and makes your lashes look all around fuller and darker! Thankfully, this is one beauty product where you don’t have to break the bank, especially since you should replace it every three months! Mascara is one of my essentials, I rarely leave the house without at least one coat. It makes me feel so much more awake and put together! Here are some of my go-to mascaras, and they’re all under $10!
1. CoverGirl Full Lash Bloom Mascara
This CoverGirl Full Lash Bloom mascara is somehow super gentle and soft, but makes your lashes look so much longer! The brush is flexible and has tons of bristles to grab every single lash. It also has beeswax that thickens and moisturizes your lashes! This mascara definitely is more lengthening and goes on lightly, so it’s great for days when you want to look more natural.
2. Maybelline Volum’ Express The Colossal Mascara
If you’re looking for lots of volume, this is the drugstore mascara for you! Maybelline Volum’ Express The Colossal makes your lashes look super full and thick. The wand is pretty big, with lots of long, thin bristles to catch each lash. I will admit that the large wand can be a bit clumsy, but overall this mascara works well, especially for $6!
3. L’Oreal Voluminous Mascara
Where the other two mascaras are excellent for the price, L’Oreal Voluminous is my all around favorite drugstore mascara! It’s lengthening and adds tons of volume. I usually use two coats of L’Oreal Voluminous and my lashes look super full and glamorous. You do have to apply the second coat just a few seconds after the first though, because it can clump once its dried. The wand is the perfect size to get all the little lashes in the corners of your eyes and your lower lids.
