In case you missed it, I posted a *high- end mascara round up*. In that post, I tried a huge number of mascaras. I also promised that I would put together a similar post with only drugstore mascaras. You aren’t here for my rambling so lets just jump right into it. Just an FYI, these aren’t in rank order. Each of these mascaras is good for a different reason.

Maybelline Mega Plush Volum’ Express: I love how this does exactly what it says and gives intense volume.
L’Oréal Paris Voluminous Superstar X Fiber Washable: This mascara is dual ended. One end is a black primer. The other end is a fiber mascara. This is the best fiber mascara of the two that I tried. I think primer can really help the lashes but some people don’t want the extra step. That’s up to you.
Maybelline Total Temptation: While some claim this is a dupe for the Lancôme Monsieur Big, I don’t think it has the same staying power. That being said, it is the closet match that I have tried.
Essence The False Lashes Mascara: I don’t think you can make a list of best performing drugstore mascaras without including an Essence mascara. This one is such a steal and it gives the big false lashes look.
Pixi by Petra Lower Lash Mascara: While I like my top lashes to look fuller and longer, the bottom lashes don’t always need that much help.After all, raccoon eye is not the look of the season. I love this lower lash mascara because of the formula and the price.
Here are all of the mascaras that I tried for this post that didn’t make the top five:
Maybelline Lash Sensational Full Fan Effect
Maybelline The Falsies Pushup Drama
Maybelline Great Lash
Essence Lash Princess(The Pink One)
Essence Forbidden Volume
Essence Rock N Doll XXXL
Covergirl The Supersizer Fiber
L’Oréal Voluminous Butterfly Sculpt
L’Oréal Voluminous Lash Paradise (I know. I know. But it dries out and needs to be replaced too often to make the list. Sorry.)
L’Oréal Voluminous Carbon Black
L’Oréal Telescopic Mascara
