3 drugstore mascaras makeup artists swear by

Nothing transforms your look like a great mascara – whether you’re in full glam makeup or just running errands, mascara is a daily essential for many of us. But I refuse to pay over $9 for any mascara. Why? Because the best mascara isn’t the most expensive. 

Makeup artists I’ve worked with swear by these 3 drugstore brands and use them religiously, even though they could easily purchase the most expensive mascaras on the market.

L’Oreal Paris Voluminous Original Mascara

This is my personal favorite and the favorite of a lot of makeup artists. As the name suggests, this mascara gives you a lot of volume but it doesn’t clump. I love that my lashes always look soft, not crunchy, and I am always getting asked if my lashes are real when I’m wearing this mascara.

Makeup artists love this product because even though it can create
dramatic lashes, it’s – you guessed it – not clumpy. The brush is curved and helps with even coverage, and you can do several coats without the fear of clumping.

I remember my mom using this mascara when I was little, and there’s a reason it’s been a best-seller for so long. It works. It’s got a small brush, which works really well on both upper and lower lashes, and you can definitely pile on the coats for a dramatic look. It’s hard to find a mascara that’s more iconic than this pink and green tube.

Pop into any drugstore and you’ll almost certainly see all three of these products. Here’s to great lashes at a reasonable price!
