Doesn’t everyone keep their Drugstore Mascaras in a wine glass?
I recently got a new mascara and hated it. (It incidently was Rimmel Argan Mascara). So it made think – I should tell you the ones I love. Mascara is a personal thing, people like different ones for different reasons. I do have some non-drugstore mascaras as well – but they may deserve their own post if people want! But here are my favorite drugstore mascaras:
Maybelline has two that I love.
One by One Volume Express –
I have tried this one in both waterproof and regular formulas, and in both dark brown and black. I typically prefer dark brown and don’t really have a preference between waterproof or regular (other than removal is easier for regular). This mascara really does seperate my lashes and makes them look individual. I do get good volume as well.
Lash Discovery –
This one I have only tried in waterproof – and I don’t really have a reason – maybe when I first bought it that is all they had? So now when I repurchase I still buy it? I do like the waterproofness of it – because I will often wear it to the gym – and it makes it sweatproof. (no I don’t put makeup on for the gym typically – but tossing a bit of this on my lashes makes me look a bit more awake – and I have been working out first thing in the morning at my new office – and want to make a somewhat decent first impression – let me tell you sweating to death and doing planks with your new boss is one way to break the ice!). Anyway there are quite a few highend mascaras out that are designed for your lower lash line – I know Clinique and IT Cosmetics have popular ones. I think this is a great dupe for these. It really gets my stumpy lower lashes well and honestly does a great job on my top lashes too. I have noticed it curls them quite well? The small brush makes it really easy to get close to the lash line.
Loreal has two as well
Mega Volume Collagene –
I will never forget when I first tried this mascara, Russell was like – wow! your lashes. For my husband (I love you honey) to comment on my eye lashes meant that mascara was fabulous, indeed. I do seem to like it after it dries about a bit. It does transfer so make sure to let it dry. I have both waterproof and regular.
I also like Voluminous, but currently don’t have any.
Lashblast (orange tube) –
This one really does give me volume. Apparently I like rubber bristle brushes, which is funny I would have thought that I would prefer regular brushes.
This isn’t to say these are the only ones that I love…but darned if these couldn’t get me through life just fine. It isn’t to also say that I won’t be buying and trying new ones.
I am currently trying Covergirl Supersizer.
It get’s rave reviews – but I am only meh about it. I am not willing to toss it just yet, sometimes when mascaras dry out a bit they get better.
What mascaras are your go to from the drugstore?
