If I was only allowed to have one makeup item, it would be mascara. I love that with a couple of swipes I can go from looking undone to done-up. Another reason why I love mascara? It is so affordable. While you could spend a pretty penny on mascara at Sephora, there are plenty of great drugstore mascaras.
The following drugstore picks will make your lashes look fuller and longer with just a couple of swipes. And since these are all from the drugstore, they all cost less than $10!
The Best Drugstore Mascaras
L’Oreal Paris Bambi Eye
You can now achieve that doe-eyed look with the aptly named mascara from L’Oreal. This mascara is available in several colors and there is a waterproof option too.
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 closest match that I have found.
Essence Lash Princess False Lash Effect Mascara
You can’t have a list of the best drugstore mascaras without including Essence. This super affordable mascara really brings the drama. At $5 for a tube, it is a steal.
L’Oreal Paris Telescopic Original Lengthening Mascara
Don’t let the wand scare you off. When used properly, you can get the longest lashes with this mascara. The small brush is also great for getting your lower lashes.
Maybelline Falsies Lash Lift Mascara
This mascara really does lift your lashes. It also gives incredible volume without being clumpy. You can get it in a couple of different shades and there is a waterproof version as well.
