Getting lengthy, doll-like lashes doesn’t have to cost a million bucks. And, while we’re big fans of luxury mascaras and their magical results, there are also plenty of drugstore finds that go above and beyond their double-shot-latte price tag. Lucky for us, L'Oréal sent us dozens to try and we picked out the very best! In fact, many of these bargain items are actually pretty famous. You may even have one (or several) in your makeup bag as we speak write!
Arguably the most iconic mascara in the bunch, this world-renowned formula (known for its green and pink packaging) conditions as it thickens, leaving your lashes looking full, long and lush. It’s also contact lens friendly, hypoallergenic and available in a waterproof formula.
We’ve been layering on this “voluminous” mascara ever since we first discovered the beauty of lush lashes. If it’s drama that you’re looking for, this is the stuff. It’s formulated to build lashes up to five times their natural thickness with just a single application. And there’s no stiffness, clumping, flaking or smudging in sight.
Are you a fan of any mascara that rocks a massive spoolie? Well, we are. So, it’s obvious this mascara and its larger-than-life wand is a fave. Not only is it infused with ingredients that nourish your lashes, but it also packs on the volume for just $7!
Next time you come across this bright green tube, make sure to add it to your shopping cart. The zero-clump formula and patented brush shape elongates and accentuates lashes for maximum length and overall fabulousness.
Once you pick out your fave formula, read up on some of our mascara do’s and don’ts!
