Contrary to first glance, mascara is one of the most varied makeup products out there. Between fiber mascaras, primers, volume- or length-enhancing formulas, there are a lot of options to try. Lately, however, we’ve been loving tubing mascaras. They work differently than other formulas because they form a tube around each lash and slip off easily with warm water. Ahead, we rounded up six of our favorites (all available at the drugstore and super affordable!) that you have to add to your eye makeup stash, STAT — you won’t regret it.
This washable mascara is one of our go-tos for the warmer months, thanks to its clump-free, lightweight formula. It makes lashes appear long, clean and wispy — exactly what you want out of a tubing formula. Plus, it literally washes off in a snap!
The Voluminous X Fiber Mascara is a cult favorite for good reason. This dual-ended brush allows you to build the tubes over each lash easily and coats them in color right after. This one works to build volume just as much as length.
Stay Perfect is one of our favorite tubing formulas thanks to its wearability, highly pigmented and long-lasting finish. The brush on this one is rounded, thick and has the perfect amount of bristle to give you the lush finish you’re looking for.
