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.
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!
