Favorite Drugstore Mascaras

 4 of the best drugstore mascaras

 I love mascara. I have an entire drawer full of mascara. It’s one of those makeup items that make you look great even when you aren’t wearing anything else. It’s my go-to makeup item when I don’t want to wear makeup. 90% of my mascaras are of the high end variety, but I do have these 4 drugstore mascaras that I love and throw into my rotation quite often.

I always get my mascara in black. Everyone should have black mascara in their collection, even if your eyelashes are light in color. Black lashes make eyes look larger and your whites brighter.

Great Lash Mascara in clear from Maybelline

I admit I do not use this one as mascara, but more as an eyebrow gel. It’s perfect for holding your eyebrows in place and a cheaper alternative than some of the high-end brow gels. This is also a great mascara for a preteen or woman who wants to wear makeup, but wants a natural look.

L’Oreal Waterproof Voluminous Carbon Black

Out of the four this one is probably my favorite. I love how dark this is and it goes on smoothly without clumping. Has great staying power and doesn’t smudge under my eyes or flake. This is my only waterproof mascara, in general I don’t like wearing them (except for at funerals, wedding and anytime I will be around water) and hate how hard they can be to get off. This is my exception to that rule. I love it that much, but you will need a makeup remover that is good for taking waterproof mascara off.

Maybelline the Falsies Big Eyes in Black

The Falsies mascara is a double-ended wand. One end is for upper lashes and the other end is for bottom lashes. This mascara has a thin formula and brush which makes it easy to put on, but I really love this mascara for the small brush on the end meant for the lower lashes. I ALWAYS mess up putting mascara on my lower lashes. ALWAYS! This brush makes my life so much better.

L’Oreal Lash Out Butterfly in Blackest Black/Noir

This mascara has the strangest brush, it’s rubbery and triangle like shaped. I thought I would hate this mascara because of the brush, but it actually goes on very well and the shape makes it easy to get to the lashes closest to your nose. I do find that by the end of a 10-hour work day I do have smudging on the bottom of my eyes. Other than that I really like this mascara.

These are my favorite drugstore mascara’s. What is your favorite mascara? Please share!

Enjoy!
